Welcome to Montalto Farmhouse. We are a family run business and this was our family home – we were all brought up in the house and on the farm. We want you to enjoy what we were fortunate to have all our lives. The original farm dwelling place stood at the top of the yard where the cow shed now stands. The last three generations have lived in the current farmhouse, which was again fully renovated in 1994.
My two brothers farm this small beef and sheep farm.They will be happy to chat about their work or the life of the farm, which has been farmed by the same family now for three generations since the late eighteen hundred’s.
The family history, old and new, includes much music and writing and if you feel inspired by the location, we would love it to continue for you too should you be so inclined.
Should you come across our two sheep dogs - Toby and the young enthusiastic Oscar They are exuberantly friendly but are often clarried in mud. Their enthusiasm and personal hygiene are sometimes not a great combination if you are pristine about your clothes, but a firm word will suffice. If you have anyone in your party who is afraid of dog’s, then please let us know in advance and they will be kept chained when not out working. They both live in a large kennel inside a warm shed and when chained, have access at all times to their bowls and a long run so they can wander to just outside the barn whenever they want.
Please enjoy your stay at Montalto Farmhouse.
