The Leen is situated a mile outside the pretty Black and White village of Pembridge in the heart of the North Herefordshire countryside. The Leen dates back to the 14th century and is mentioned in the Doomsday Book but its history goes back further as there is an ancient Dyke across the farm dated to the 7th century. Most of the farm buildings date from the 17th century onwards.
The Leen has been in the Smith family for almost 100 years and is now run by the Norman Partnership, the family of the late Frank Smith. The Norman Partnership consists of Tony and Barbara Norman (Frank Smith’s daughter), their two sons and their wives - Rich and Pip and Chris and Sarah.
We offer bed and breakfast in our Grade 2 Listed, traditional farmhouse. The guest bedrooms overlook the garden and beyond to the river. We also have a small caravan site if you enjoy outdoor accomodation!
We have a dairy herd and the oldest herd of Hereford beef cattle in the world. The farm also has various managed habitats and you are very welcome to enjoy our farm, where you will see a wide variety of birds, butterflies and wild flowers.
