History of Ash House Farm

Samuel Greg started an old cotton mill in the 1700's and it had become a National Trust property today as Samuel's great great grandson, Alexander Carlton Greg, gave this old mill to the National Trust in 1939. Mr Greg lived at Ash House Farm for over 50 years until his death in 1990. We purchased Ash House Farm and run it till today. In our main farmhouse accommodation, there is still a room called The Greg Room in rememrance of Mr. Greg.


While the working Farm still took its usual farming routine, Sue Schofield took the lead and started the family B&B business in 1994.  The farm had been very well known for growing fruit in this area and Fruit Store is the original building where the fruit was packed for market, therefore Sue kept the names of all the rooms that are all named after fruits. She had also given each room an unique style and renovated to a high standard, comprising of four en-suite bedrooms with all rooms having underfloor heating.
