History of Grimsbury farm

The farmhouse is believed to date back to the early 17th century.

There were connections between those who lived here and the owners of Barrs Court. During building work in 2009 the dovecote was revealed at the back of the farmhouse.

Stonehill Barn, the hay barn, was originally built around 1800 and is made from pennant stone rubble walls with a pantile roof.

Opposite Stonehill Barn is the stable. If you stand at the door of the stable and look up, you’ll see a Barn Owl nest box built into the roof.

Until 1991, it stood about 2km to the north-west, on the route of the planned Avon Ring Road. It was a listed building, so rather than demolish it, we decided to move it to its present site and rebuild it. This was completed in 1993, and the rebuilt barn retains much of its original character.
