Park Farm on the Shuckburgh Estate

Situated on the historic Shuckburgh Estate, close to the Warwickshire/Northamptonshire border, Park Farm is a working sheep and beef farm. Shuckburgh is one of the oldest privately owned estates in the country and is currently owned by the 14th baronet,  Sir James Shuckburgh.  The title was bestowed on the family by Charles I after the Battle of Edgehill in1642 although the Shuckburgh family had lived on the estate for many previous generations.

The farm consists of 300 acres of traditional grassland and is home to a pedigree herd of Hereford cattle and 700 breeding ewes, together with a variable number of Gloucester Old Spot pigs, numerous hens and several ducks!

Approach via the drive which runs parallel to the Deer Park and along the way, look out for the diverse range of birds and wildlife which inhabit the estate.  Park Farm is in the Countrywide Stewardship Scheme which promotes the conservation of the natural fauna and flora and as a result has an abundance of wildlife.

Perhaps, the best way to appreciate the unique area in which we live, is to take one of the many lovely walks from the farm.  This could be around the estate, along the canal towpath or one of the many pub-walks, all within easy reach.  Several excellent golf courses together with local fishing and riding stables are all within close proximity.  Stabling can be arranged on the farm, if required.
