Hello. I live with my family at Ford farm and we farm a large flock of sheep. We also own a business called Grove Golf and Bowl. This consists of two 9 hole golf courses, driving range, restaurant (timber oak framed barn) and eight lanes of ten pin bowling. We are a friendly and active family who welcome spending time with students. We ensure students gain confidence speaking English in a relaxed and informal setting.

About the teacher’s accommodation

We live a few miles from Leominster which is Herefordshires largest market town, where early prosperity was built upon the wool trade, well known for antique shops now. This part of the county has pretty black and white villages nearby to be explored together with bustling market towns, such a Ledbury and Ludlow nearby.  Hereford and Worcester are the nearest cities with beautiful cathedrals, lots of shopping, cinema’s and theatres. The area is peaceful and tranquil with beautiful countryside for fresh air and walking.

About the local area

Close by is Hampton Court and Berrington Hall and there are nice day trips available to Ludlow, Goodrich, Corft and Stocksey Castle. The local town has a nice farmers market and food fair.
