A Unique Place Steeped in History
Brickfields Farm has a fascinating history that dates back to the 1700s. It was once an industrial brick and tile making site where the clay was excavated from the land and mixed with water before being kneaded into moulds by hand.
The farmhouse and outbuildings were constructed using the rejected bricks, and some unusual bonds that date the buildings back to pre-1800. It's a testament to the hard work physical labor that went into creating this unique piece of history.
The history of the site is rich and interesting.
From 1905 to 2018, the land was owned by the same family, and although farming activity ceased in 2001, the famous drying shed was repurposed as a home for a herd of dairy cattle.
The orchard, once well-stocked and enjoyed by resident pigs, is now mostly gone, but visitors to the car park can still see the only surviving pear tree from that time.
Discover the rich history of our site, where the original drying sheds have been transformed into luxurious accommodation and the farmhouse is now a popular restaurant.
Even though the site has been modernised, the ghostly outlines of the original buildings can still be seen etched on the land, reminding us of its industrious past. Come and experience the unique blend of history and luxury at our site.
