Lesley and Malcolm Gough are the guardians of Chater Valley Farm. We aim to offer a special, sacred space that melds a beautiful collaboration of Nature and Nurture, partnering with some of the most beautiful souls on the planet to offer their guidance and wisdom. Our vision is to support & empower all who are drawn to us, by creating a shared and loving environment in which healing and transformation can take place. We offer Equine Therapy, SoundBaths and Drumming Circles, Biofield Tuning, Coaching & Mentoring, Labyrinth Walks, Meditation, Yoga, Nutritional guidance and Shamanic practices.

Miniature Herefords

We are Europe’s premier breeder of very rare miniature Hereford cattle and we can advise on the breeding and upkeep of these fabulous diminutive animals.



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.


Programme of Events

We are approaching the end of this year’s event programme and delighted to be hosting Retreats led by two beautiful souls – “HJ” Nelson’s Cecara Retreat (Nov 13-15th), and Sheila Belanger’s “Earth is Hiring” Retreat“(Nov 16-17th). These two gatherings conclude an amazing year here at Chater Valley, and so we are now starting to focus on next year and taking provisional bookings for events in 2019. Also starting in December, and taking us through the winter, is fortnightly SoundBaths (Friday evenings) and Drumming sessions (Sunday mornings), plus ongoing Equine Therapy & Biofield Tuning. Please call 01780 720660 for more details. Tipi
