The Grade II listed farmhouse is believed to have been built in the late 16th or early 17th century with the date of 1663, set in stone above the main house front door, relating to the later addition of a stone porch to commemorate the marriage of Robert & Susanna Michaelson.
The present owner's forebears, George Dixon and his wife, bought the property shortly after the outbreak of World War One in 1914. Two generations of the family reared beef and dairy cattle on the farm, together with a small thoroughbred racehorse breeding operation.
In 2007 Greenbank Farm became home to Sandy & Sylvia Alexander and horse occupation was re-introduced when Tracey, their youngest daughter moved her Black Horses business onto the farm www.blackhorses.co.uk . Sadly, Sandy passed away in 2017 and now Tamara, Sandy & Sylvia's eldest daughter, moved up to join Sylvia, Tracey and her son Bailey, on the farm to help out and continue Sandy's dream of renovating all the farm buildings. Greenbank Farm is a true family business.
The farm is home to approximately 15 Friesian horses ranging from youngstock, broodmares, riding and dressage horses and those used for the Friesian carriage driving business. Guests should be aware that as a busy equestrian centre work starts on the farm around 7am, although every effort is made to keep any noise to a minimum.
