About Us

We moved to the Farm in 2010, fresh from London and the Corporate world. We wanted to live our lives differently. To live the so called ‘good life’. Living in rhythm with nature and its seasons. Growing our own food organically so we could eat better. Enjoying the great British outdoors. And mostly spending more time together as a family. So here we are, making it all a reality. For those who are less crazy or cannot simply up sticks and leave their well-paying jobs! Drovers Rest is your place!

We haven’t forgotten our corporate roots, which taught us so much. Today we run workshops, events and training on the Farm. And still travel globally freelancing for Unilever, Google and NGOs close to our heart. We are very much like the Black sheep that dot our Farm. And the cheeky sheep in our logo. We do love to buck the status quo. To do things differently. To ask why not.  And to dream of what could be. We have a passion for diversity in all things. From people, animals, culture, food, ideas, to ways of thinking. Drovers Rest strongly mirrors this passion. We hope you like what we’ve created.

“The terms ‘Bed and Breakfast’ and ‘Self-Catering’ once conjured up lace curtains, doilies, lists of do’s and don’ts. And a sense of being stuck in a more formal, sepia era. How times have changed. Part of this shift is down to a new generation of owners, who’ve brought a sense of play, informality, style and entrepreneurialism to their ventures. They’re breaking the rules. Blurring the lines between the old classifications of B&Bs, self-catering and hotels. And offering so much more than just a bed for the night. The result? Fabulous places, buzzing with energy and ideas. With a far richer experience for guests. At Drover’s Rest Kesri, Paul and their young family’s labour of love has really paid off. The Shepherd’s Shack, Drover’s Cottage, The Carthouse and a collection of souped-up Safari Tents with private underfloor heated bathrooms, are super getaways in the Black Mountains. Get involved on the farm, hang out around the campfire with cocktails toasting marshmallows or join in one of their convivial food night gatherings in their no expense spared, stunning chill-out barn.” Travel writer, Alistair Sawday +44 (0) 7908 162598
