Passionate about our farming, both James and I are from farming families and share a love of animals, the countryside and rural living.

Rainbow Wood Farm is unusually situated close to Bath (1.9 miles) and is an oasis of large green fields and characterful woodland. The farm is also home to a large section of  the incredibly popular Bath Skyline walk which overlooks the valley that is the city of Bath and extraordinary Georgian architecture.
