About us

Both perry and wild flowers are at their best in high Summer.

We are Clare & Jeremy and we have lived at Hollow Ash, our 8 acre small holding, since 1994.

View over the Monnow Valley towards the Welsh hills.

Situated on the edge of the Monnow Valley, we think it has one of the loveliest views in Herefordshire.

Haymaking using our 1960 Massey Ferguson 35.

We lived in a caravan for three years while we worked part time on converting our small threshing barn to an eco home (more details here).

Our home, Hollow Ash, was built as a small threshing barn.
We planted three acres of traditional orchards and now make cider, perry and apple juice.
In 2007 we planted a 4 acre woodland which is home to many small birds and butterflies.
We manage the land for the benefit of wildlife by recreating wildflower meadows.
Our chickens live in the woodland and lay eggs for our holiday guests.
In 2010 we started a shepherd hut building business. We are now retired, but we let out two huts for holiday accommodation.
