Made from the famous honey-coloured Hamstone, and in view of Ham Hill across the River Parrett our farm buildings are arrayed around a courtyard, along with our house and some stables.  Aided by the wonderful range of tenants who work here, this produces an intimate, vibrant feel and a very friendly atmosphere - there is a lot of cross fertilisation between the tenants, and a spirit of creativity.  

The 20 units in our

Victorian farmyard range from 210 to 1300 sq ft, and from characterful workshops to comfortable offices, some with outstanding views.  All are well insulated and most have kitchenettes and toilets (with communal facilities, including a shower, for those without).  There is ample parking, and the area is quiet and peaceful, but surprisingly well connected.   

Welcome!    What We Offer


During the coronavirus crisis, our farmyard remains open for business.  Whilst some businesses are working more or less normally, some are primarily working from home.    

If you're intending to visit the farmyard, please ensure you maintain social distancing and the other measures to safeguard your own safety and that of those working here.

Thank you and stay well.

My family owns the farm across the road from Flaxdrayton and it has recently become vacant after a long term tenancy.  Not wanted for farming, we are currently giving priority to a Co-housing initiative to be developed there. Of a similar vintage to Flaxdrayton, it comprises a farmhouse, extensive traditional and modern buildings that are ideal for conversion to around 12 residential units, plus some communal buildings as meeting/creative space, dining area, kitchen, utility, etc, together with about 8 acres of agricultural land. 

Conveniently located

We were delighted with the large number of visitors to our Open Day back in September 2019.  We raised a total of £500 from the XR Cafe and donations from stalls which we divided between South Somerset Extinction Rebellion and Prostate Cancer UK, in fond memory of our late tenant Graham Colyer of Portable Floors who died earlier in the year and who contributed so much to our farmyard community over the years.

 With extra stalls, from previous tenants and local businesses, wall-to-wall live music, and XR's print making workshops, the whole farmyard was buzzing throughout the day!    

Great ambiance

There is also space for workshop units so there is also scope for live-work options on the site.

We think this would be an ideal complement to Flaxdrayton and are very excited to be enabling something so innovative to take shape next door!
 The project is looking for people who might be interested in living there and who wish to participate in its development, including joining the core group. If you are interested in finding out more, please go to
