Welcome to Elmley, a national nature reserve and our family farm.

Elmley is a 3,300 acre estate based on an island in the Thames, situated away from the bustle of North Kent, just an hour from London.

A vast wilderness. The spectacular landscape, soul stirring skies and breath-taking wildlife provide a truly inspirational escape.

It is a very special place, and provides an extraordinary setting for a special event, weekend escape or simply to immerse yourself in nature for the day.

Opening hours

The Reserve is currently closed. Online bookings are open now for dates after 1st February 2021.
