About us - lane

Family run for over 70 years

Current owners, Martin and Joby, work in partnership with Martin’s parents Tom and Sheila, running a beef suckler herd,  and growing wheat, barley and grass. It’s an inclusive operation and the owners are keen to answer questions as guests take the opportunity to learn more about farm life.

Get your bearings

Whilst staying on the farm you may spot some of the animals, including chickens, labradors Lizzie and Honey, goat Trit-Trot; Chase, the horse and Pumpkin, the Shetland pony. The Bartlett’s non-intensive method of farming means that deer, hares, foxes, rabbits, buzzards and a wide assortment of birds can be spotted from the site. Check the hedgerows during autumn; there’s an abundance of sloe berries which campers are free to pick and take home to make delicious sloe gin.
