Welcome to Wallington Farm
We hope you will enjoy your stay on our Farm, in the newly converted barn conversions.
Ian and Tracey live at this family run farm, which was purchased by Ian’s grandfather in 1956. At that time the farm was 72 acres. Ian’s parents took over the running of the farm in 1962, where they increased their stock and purchased more land. They had two daughters and a son, Ian, who joined the family partnership in 1985. We continued to purchase land when it became available, and increased the stock.
We have 500 breeding sheep, 150 Cattle, 50 Hens 5 Rabbits and 2 Pygmy Goats. The farmhouse and buildings are set down a country lane with the views of the welsh hills and the Cheshire plain.
For us farming is a way of life and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Now we want others to enjoy it with us.
You are welcome to see Lambs being born on our farm in the winter months, then you can retreat back into your cosy barn to warm up.
Wellington Boots are essential and warm clothing.
Farming is very dependent on the weather and determines what jobs we do from day to day. No two days are the same.
As you can appreciate it is busy working environment, with tractors and the necessary machinery.
Our working calendar is as follows
- January. Early lambs are due.
- February. Lambing time
- March. 2nd batch of lambs due and hopefully some baby rabbits

If you wish to have a tour of the farm yard, please arrange at the time of your visit. Please note that tours at lambing times can put pregnant ladies at risk.
