About South Farm
Once part of the Wimpole Hall estate, South Farm dates back to the Tudor times of the 16th Century. It was bought as a ruin in the 1970s, but the house and barns, which are nestled within 20 acres of glorious grounds, have been lovingly restored and brought back to life thanks to Philip and his family.
The farm was collapsing into decay over 30 years ago. It was restored to become the family home where two sons, James and Jeremy, were raised. With a keen interest in good food and organic production, a vegetable plot was tentatively mapped out. But since Philip's retirement as a vet, the hobby's grown into a way of life.
Christine, in charge of catering, is a talented and versatile chef, while James and his father Philip manage the property and events with great enthusiasm and dedication, ensuring professional, personal and flexible service.
