A Little Bit of History of Home Farm

We established Home Farm B&B in 2004.

When we purchase it, it was a dated family home which, over time, we restored and put back many of the original features.

We also converted the adjacent barn that used to be a cow shed and grain store, which now forms part of the B&B.

Home Farm as a rich history in the quaint village of Beachampton. The name, drawn from Old English, speaks to its origins as a "home farm by a stream", a fact recorded as 'Bechentone' in the Domesday Book of 1086. Today.

The brook that you cross to access via our ford flows into the River Great Ouse at the lower end of the village. What is now our drive, used to be a lane that served several houses as you can see in the photo. We are are the only house in the village that still has a ford to cross the book.

With its origins dating back over 300 years, Home Farm was once a tradition dairy and arable farm, and also had a bakery and some time later a brewery. The original bake oven and water pump are still in the Bakery.  After the Second World War, Home Farm was council tenanted farm. From the 1960s it became a private residence until 2004 when we bought for the purpose of running it as a B&B.

Today, Home Farm thrives as a highly rated Bed and Breakfast and with along with pub a big part of the community.

We briefly leased out the B&B for a couple of years but are now happy running the business again.
