Walton Thorns Farm Holiday Cottages


Our Farm Trail and Classic & Vintage Tractor Collection


Our marked and mapped trail of over 6km has been created around the farm passing woodland, ponds, streams and hedgerows alongside our arable crops. There are many species of birds and animals to be seen - Muntjac & roe deer, fox, hares, rabbits, buzzard, red kite, barn owl, chaffinch, goldfinch, yellow hammer, song thrush, blackbird, robin, wren, various tits, greenfinch, wagtail, dove and kestrel.

We also have a collection of tractors built up over the years including Ford, Ford Conversions, County, Roadless, McCormick, International, David Brown, Massey Ferguson, John Deere and Nuffield. We are happy to give guided tours on request for interested guests. There are numerous Vintage Tractor events nearby throughout the year including Rempstone Steam Rally and Newark Tractor Show.
