Flaxdrayton Farm

Livestock Buildings

The Cider Cellar


We are just upgrading the Cider Cellar, insulating its ceiling and adding more light with a bigger window in the same style as the rest of the farmyard. It's 663 sq ft with a lovely high ceiling and would be ideal as a studio or workshop.   The rent is £4640pa (£7/sq ft) and the unit is available from the New Year.

The Shippens

Marc Wood Bespoke Joinery (www.marcswood.co.uk)

Next door is the Shippens.  In fact, the cattle sheds were all one originally, with the stalls continuing on round the corner. This is a more basic workshop but slightly bigger at 725 sq ft.  Here, Marc Wood follows the honourable tradition of fine joinery in this unit.  His hallmarks are designing, making and installing high quality, hand crafted furniture and other fittings using local and reclaimed timber.

The Dairy

​John Adamson (www.johnadamson-woodcarver.co.uk)

Along the far side are the old cattle sheds.  We converted the Dairy first (680 sq ft), removing the stalls and equipment and levelling the floor.  It is finished to office standard, but John is a highly skilled wood carver and he's turned it into a quality workshop, producing fine sculptures, friezes, carved panels and furniture.  He works on commission and also has pieces for sale.

Tucked into the corner of the farmyard is the Hackney Stable (210 sq ft), where the carriage horses lived.  It still has their manger and the post and rail that separated them.  Here John Mawby follows his passion for creating beautiful lettering across a range of media, namely stone, wood and paper.

SHQ Miniatures (www.shqminiatures.co.uk)

The Stock Yard is a fine detached barn in the centre of the farmyard.  We recently divided it into two parts and the largest (1315 sq ft) houses Peter Edwards and friends at SHQ Miniatures.  They produce a huge range of miniature metal figures (15 to 25 mm), principally for miniature war games. They range from ancient Chinese armies to the Gulf War, and also include Middle Earth and beyond.
