About Mrs Pat Colson
I was actually born in Cowbridge, South Wales, but my parents moved to the Cotswolds to farm when I was 3 months old. I have lived in this area on farms ever since!
Mrs Pat Colson purchased this cottage in 2003
Why Mrs Pat Colson chose Witney
We bought this small farm 11 years ago, as we wanted to downsize and concentrate on stock farming and breeding rare-breed pigs and Welsh Ponies. We also have commercial sheep and cattle. The Old Bakehouse was a disused barn next to the main farmhouse which housed the bread oven and washing copper. We converted it 8 years ago into a holiday cottage and it has been fully booked ever since! We have many regulars stay with us.
What makes this cottage unique
Field Farm is a unique farm in the traditional manner. It has lovely old listed barns, stone walls and acres of old permanent grasslands with no corn in sight. The rolling hills descend into a beautiful wetland with stream and young woodland, a breeding ground for snipe, barn owls and other lovely wild birds.
