Humble by Nature
Distance from Shire Hall: 4 miles
Get a real feel for farm life by staying in the old Hayloft.
Positioned at the heart of the farm on the upper floor of our Long Barn, the beautifully restored Hayloft is an ideal getaway for two whether you're coming on one of our courses or just fancy a truly rural break.
Walk up the original stone steps to the Hayloft and enter the kitchen/dining area; equipped with a table top oven, sink and fridge. The shower room leads off the kitchen. The Hayloft's main studio room is divided by a large bookshelf into the living area with a three seater sofa, armchair and television/DVD and the sleeping area with stylish modern king sized bed and chest of drawers.
This bright and airy apartment has beautiful views across the fields. There is use of a small private garden looking across the fields with table and benches at the bottom of the stairs.
The Hayloft is a perfect retreat for two people.
The humble hideaway
The Humble Hideaway is our little piece of luxury hiding away in the woods. We think it's the perfect place to get away from the world and enjoy the great outdoors. It is only accessible by 4x4 or on foot and consists of a Plankbridge Shepherd's Hut and beautifully restored GWR Lamp Hut. The Shepherd's Hut has a double bed & wood burner in it. The GWR Lamp Hut, which was used originally for storing railway lamps, has a shower, gas cooker & kitchen area.
The Hideaway is completely off-grid with solar powered electricity and has a composting toilet. The camp area is in a fenced-off wooded glade, it has a fire pit and outdoor wooden furniture, hand-made on-site using wood milled from the farm.
The Hideaway can accommodate up to two extra people (children or adults) in a tent. You will need to bring your own tent and bedding for any additional guests. Dogs are welcome, they’re not allowed in the huts but they do have their own spacious dog kennel to stay in. Although the camp is fenced, it is not completely dog proof.
‘The Piggery’ is a delightful two bedroom cottage attached to the main farmhouse, with lovely views out over the farm fields. The cottage sleeps four, with one double and one twin room. It has a well-equipped modern kitchen and there’s a woodburning stove and flat screen TV in the sitting room for cosy evenings in. Outside is a private garden with your own raised beds to pick salad and vegetables and a recently planted orchard complete with hens so you can collect your own eggs.
There's plenty to do in the area and children are well catered for. Whether it's getting out and about or spending a morning on the farm with Farmer Tim you're sure to have fun!
