October

Brenley Farm House B&B

Art & Weddings – life’s never quiet down on the farm!

It’s October and here at Brenley Farm B&B, all is safely gathered in; hops, apples, pears, grapes and arable crops.

Once upon a time that would mean life becoming quieter through the autumn and winter – but not anymore.  Diversification is now the name of the game and whilst the B&B and bunkhouse barn may be quieter, there’s no shortage of people booking for next year.  But one of the newer changes is reflected in becoming a wedding venue – that’s what happens when your son says he wants to get married at home, a whole new enterprise

Whilst we may grumble that our numerous old Listed buildings are not practical for today’s farming, they do come into their own and make a fabulous backdrop for the weddings; and having accommodation on site and space for marquees, is a bonus.

Our other new enterprise is with my youngest son Nick, taking over a redundant office building and turning it into art studios.  Grain Store Studio now has studios for artists to rent, clean and messy teaching rooms and exhibition areas.

With Christmas not so far away they are getting ready for 2 exhibitions/markets, one in November on 26th and 27th to celebrate having been open for a year and a Christmas one in December on 10th and 11th with mulled wine and mince pies.  Why not come along and see what’s on offer.
