A Little History

David and Veronica Worth came to Sandhole Farm after getting married in 1970. This was the first time David left home, moving just half a mile from the family farm, indeed on his mother’s side the family has lived within a mile of Sandhole Farm for at least 100 years. His father being much more adventurous had moved a full two miles from the neighbouring parish of Marton when he married David’s mother in 1947.

From 1970 the farm was used to grow mainly cereals and potatoes, as well as keeping a few sheep. However, from 1989 these 200 acres have been sown with turf grass, which is now harvested on average every 18 months. David and Veronica also started the B & B business in 1989 with three rooms in the farmhouse, subsequently converting the stable block to provide 16 luxury en-suite bedrooms.

The oldest part of the stable block is believed to be about 300 years old with the roof timbers dating back a further 50-60 years. Many of the original features were preserved during its conversion, whilst ensuring that the rooms have all the features you’d expect from award-winning, 4-star accommodation.
