Something About Us
Traditional farmhouse B&B
LANE FARM, our home since 1998, has been extended at regular intervals to form what is today, a sprawling 5 bedroom house. Up until 1950's, the house was thatched with exposed beams on the exterior walls. The house remains a character property, with oak beamed ceilings throughout, ideal for a relaxing holiday in an area that is rich in scenery and history, yet in a location that is close to all the area main and market towns.
Once a 200 acre farm, Lane Farm is now a 10 acre small holding with fields and a large barn where we have a large cross section of farm and domestic animals and birds from collie dogs (working dogs and pets), the pedigree flock of Lleyn sheep, ducks, horses, cats, rabbits to chickens.
The hamlet of Wilderley is noted in the Norman Domesday book of 1085 and was actually one of the larger settlements in Shropshire at that time; comprising 9 dwellings. Wilderley hasn't expanded from that time. Lane Farm itself, dates from the mid-1600's, erected around the time of the English Civil War. Although now a lifestyle farm, it was originally part of a 2,000 acre, 10 farm, farming estate. The farmhouse remaining 10 acres has almost half an acre set as gardens. Easter is an excellent time to see the fields full of newly born lambs.
