Located on the river Leadon, just downstream from the birth place of Dick Whittington, it is believed that the 16th century farm house was originally an inn, called Even’est (evening rest),
on an important drovers route to Gloucester, which crossed the river 500m to the south initially by a ford and then latterly a bridge.

Bought in 2005, Everes's required extensive refurbishment the house being finished mid 2006, the buildings 3 years later.
The original farm buildings were renovated using green oak and reclaimed building materials, similarly reinstating the cider mill and press, repairing the cobble floors and renewing all the roofs.

The open fronted cow shed has been totally restored to include traditional wooden yolks for tying up the cattle. Amongst the agricultural buildings the granary has been turned in to a classroom which can be used by local schools and groups studying at the farm.
