Reviews for Ashford Farm Cottages

MyCottageHolidays logo

Meet the owner

Lynda or Norman Tudge

Lynda & Norman Tudge met at Reading University in 1970 and have lived at Ashford Farm since 1974. We continued the farm as a dairy unit until 1989, then a beef unit until 1998 when we sold all our livestock and started holiday letting, having built the three original cottages ourselves with the help of local craftsmen. We then went on to develop Well Meadow in 2005 and the Old Bull Pen in 2008. For 2016 we have taken two cottages out of holiday letting simply to reduce our work load (old age!!) so we are back to three cottages. We have retained the farmland which is let for grazing sheep and horses. Some of our land furthest away is let to the village fruit farm for growing strawberries and raspberries and some for potatoes and cereals.
