Ryeland Sheep

We've been keeping Ryeland Sheep at the Old Manor since 2002. Ryeland sheep are downland sheep and are believed to originate from Leominster. Our first three Ryelands were originally intended to be just "lawn mowers" . However, Nick attended the small holders course at Holme Lacy College to learn sheep husbandry and then went on a lambing course. One thing led to another and we now have over 20 sheep in the Old Manor Flock and stopped lambing a couple of years ago.

Spinning Wool
Ryelands are known for their quality wool which is valued by hand spinners. If you're involved with spinning, weaving or textiles and would like Ryeland fleeces please contact us

Old Manor Chickens

Our collection of chatty chickens live in a large enclosed area next in the orchard. They run free-range throughout the day and supply us with great tasting eggs. When available we also include our eggs in the holiday cottage welcome packs for guests to enjoy.
