White House Farm has been part of the family for four generations.
Our 106 acre farm is quite a modest sized estate by modern standards and over the years it became increasingly difficult to sustain our growing family without diversifying and encouraging different income streams. We have always tried to be inventive with the resources available to us and in 2015 the remaining family members decided that we were no longer interested in the traditional farming approach and we considered our options for the future. Eventually we decided to use the land to build a luxury campsite offering a mixture of traditional Mongolian Yurts, modern Nomadic Yurts and Log cabins.
We constructed our first decked area and erected our first yurt for my youngest son’s wedding in August 2016. The guests which stayed in our yurt over night seemed to enjoy the experience and this encouraged us to take the idea a little more seriously. We took our first Mongolian yurt down that winter, then started to design and plan the further expansion of our new family business and work out how to better use the space available to us.
