  About the Farm  


Mount Todden is located on the eastern side of St Mary's in a peaceful, rural position.The cottage is adjacent to the farm house and along a private lane.

Mount Todden is a mixed farm. We grow narcissus flowers in the winter and vegetables in the summer. We have a small herd of Jersey cattle which we keep to graze the fields and in the garden behind the cottage we have ducks and chickens (which can be noisy at times).

The farm is situated close to the secluded Pelistry Bay with its sandy beaches and Toll's Island, approximately 2 miles from Hugh Town. A bus runs regularly in the summer and taxis are readily available which make shopping and boating from the quay in town easily accessible.
