Womerton Farm is a new build with:
  • loft and wall insulation at higher than building regulaton standards
  • triple glazing and good internal doors.
  • LED and low energy lighting throughout house (4 pendant display lights in living room are not low energy but rarely used)
  • heat recovery ventilation throughout and under floor heating downstairs heated by Esse wood burning cooker. Large thermal heat store run by Esse topped up by solar in the summer and as yet no heating upstairs except an electric heated towel rail in bathroom
  • wood burning Esse for heating and cooking
  • solar PV
  • rainwater and grey water harvesting in the summer although a basic plastic homemade system at the moment in need of finishing off

Tom and Ruth always had a large veg and fruit patch and freeze, bottle, jam or dry surplus for winter use. They are planning a new garden by house. As their kids have grown up and needs are therefore reduced, they now share half the current veg patch with another family. 

We have 2 small dogs Directions Womerton is Ok to find with SAT NAV using the postcode SY6 6LJ. From Church Stretton the best route for non locals is to take the A49 North towards Shrewsbury and go past the Heatherbrae Craft Centre and take the next left turn just before Leebotwood signed for Lower Wood continue under the railway bridge and uphill over the crossroad and onto the hill over a cattle grid. We are the first property on the right after the cattle grid.
