Malcolm and Lesley Gough are the guardians of Chater Valley Farm. The land, the animals, the offerings, combine to create a safe space for you to have a deep conversation with yourself and Nature. Chater Valley has the ability to wake you to your deeper emotions, exposing feelings that have been hidden from you, grounding you in the natural cycles of change. Offerings include: Retreats/workshops, Guided Labyrinth Walks, Equine Therapy, Biofield Tuning, Gong & Sound Therapy, and Craftings.

Miniature Herefords

We are the UK’s only breeder of miniature Hereford cattle and we can advise on the breeding and upkeep of these fabulous diminutive animals. Bull calves for sale this year; order taken for mini heifers for next year. 01780 720660.



We are accredited by CEVAS for farm visits and enjoy making Chater Valley available to students and people who want to experience in a safe and supportive environment the harmonious collaboration of Nature and Nurture, developing both confidence and communication skills.

Chartres-inspired Labyrinth now open

It’s been two years in the making, and not without its challenges, but we are delighted to announce that our new Chartres-inspired Labyrinth has had its Dedication Ceremony and is now available to walk. There will be special guided candlelit walks each month, some of them candlelit. You are welcome to come and walk our labyrinth on your own too but please call us first to check that we are not busy with farm duties (01780 720660)
