Greyface Dartmoor

The Greyface Dartmoor is a rare longwool breed, hardy, medium sized, quite and easy to handle. We sell wether lambs and unregistered females as pets as we are building the flock at the moment so no registered stock is for sale. The fleece is more like a hair than a traditional fleece and quite coarse. It is classed as a semi lustre wool. I like to peg loom weave with mine which creates lovely curly rugs.

Manx Loaghtan

This is a rare primitive sheep originating from the Isle of Man.The lambs are born very dark brown and the fleece lightens as they grow to a light brown. They are a small, slow growing breed and can be 2 or 4 horned.  We usually have some for sale. The fleeces mostly  have a short staple length and are quite small. The colour is stunning used  in a peg loomed  rug though not the easiest to weave due to the short length.

Hill Radnor

 A good sized sheep with friendly temperament and easy to handle.  Their faces and legs make a great  contrast in a grey/brown colour. The males only are horned though they can be polled. Originating from the Radnorshire area of Wales. Their creamy white fleece is soft and springy making it great for my rugs and spinning. We have just a small flock so currently only selling wether lambs until we build the flock up.

Lincoln Longwool

The largest of the British native breeds, a docile, hornless longwool sheep with the longest fleece of any breed worldwide. 


We bred this breed for a couple of years though just have 2 part bred left now who have amazingly soft fleeces. Originating off the west coast of Scotland. A small, rare primitive sheep mostly white/cream coloured with brown or black markings. Both sexes are horned though polled and scurred sheep can occur. They naturally loose their fleece which isn’t ideal if you wish to use it. Good staple length though a smallish fleece. They are slow growing so better for hogget rather than lamb.

Black Welsh Mountain

A medium sized sheep, hardy with a lovely black fleece of a good length, ideal for me to peg loom weave with. We just have one ewe who we have put to the Boreray and Hill Radnor tups which have produced lovely soft fleeces.

Bluefaced Leicester

We  have just two of this breed and they are black rather than the usual white.

The breed is popular for crossing to create mules for meat and fine fleeces.A tall sheep with a roman nose and tightly curled fleece which is one of the finest in Britain.

Dairy Shorthorn

We chose the shorthorn for their lovely nature and there were cows available locally which helped as we didn’t have a trailer at the time. They are hardy and easy to handle, good milkers, easy calvers and good mothers to their calves. We have them to rear a calf and provide milk for the house which they do very well. Our bull calves are sold on for breeding or reared for meat. The heifer calves have all been kept and now we have a few for sale as house cows.


The Dorking is a very old breed believed to go back to Roman times. They have large brick shaped bodies on short legs. Reasonable layers and good meat birds taking 5-6 months to grow large enough. For breeding the birds reach maturity at 2 years of age, they are a slow growing bird. We have shown these birds successfully for 13 years and sell stock. Please enquire if you are interested in purchasing these lovely birds. We keep just the Reds but other colours are bred around Britain.

Marsh Daisy

The Marsh Daisy is a rare breed of chicken originating in Lancashire. Though generally calm, it is active and can fly. Hens are layers of a fair number of tinted eggs. Extremely rare even in its homeland, it is listed as an endangered breed by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust.
