Beautifully Located In North Herefordshire

North Canon Farm

Our headquarters, home to The Cart Shed office, 2 woodland sites and our horticultural site. A beautiful rural North Herefordshire location on a working farm with strong environmental credentials. Energy is produced by wind turbine or photovoltaic panels. The hedges, field margins, and orchards are all managed and maintained to a high standard of environmental stewardship.

Each of our woodland sites have a range of shelters housing a fire circle for gathering around, workshops and a woodland kitchen for making tasty lunches. Nearby are The Cart Shed willow beds where we grow our own willow for basket making and other willow crafts.

Our horticultural site has 2 polytunnels and outdoor raised beds as well as a shelter for gathering and cooking a tasty lunch with the vegetables grown on site.

Newport House

Newport House has a long history. It is thought to have been the home of the Lollard martyr, Sir John Oldcastle (1360-1417), who was the model for Shakespeare’s Falstaff, and has, over the centuries, undergone several transformations. The current house was built between 1712 and 1718 by Lord Foley, with the walled garden being moved to its current location in 1767.

Highmoor Wood

The Cart Shed has a site on the estate in Highmoor Wood, ninety acres of ancient semi-natural woodland with a hazel coppice understory. The streams that run through the site, along with the carpets of woodland flowers and abundant birdsong, makes the wood a very special place to be. Unfortunately, due to ash dieback, major felling operations and re-stocking have been underway in 2020-21.
Currently we are not using our site there, but hope to return.
