All taps in the huts and around the farmyard provide safe drinking water.
In your hut you'll find sustainable coffee pods by local roastery Lost Sheep Coffee, breakfast tea along with a kettle and Nespresso machine. Please ask for fresh milk (dairy or oat) from the Linhay.
There is a mini fridge for the milk.
You can choose to have a supper hamper delivered. All crockery, cutlery and glassware is provided, along with a small fold out table. Please don't wash up, we will collect your basket in the morning.
Please note there are no cooking facilities.
For evening star gazing, you'll find complimentary marshmallows in your hut and wood, matches and firelighters are beneath the hut. Extra wood should you need it is stored behind the office in the courtyard (an honest charge of £5 per extra bucket).
The ensuite hot shower and loo are inside the hut, and make the most of the view with the outdoor bath with a view. Towels and robes are provided. We also provide gorgeous natural products by Bramley, in full size bottles. If you would like to take them home you can purchase bottles from the Linhay.
All of our huts and cabins are designed with year round use in mind. The hut has a 75mm insulated cavity throughout, and Earthwool insulation. This is a breathable carbon-neutral material made from 80% recycled bottles. With heating, Romney Marsh Wool blankets and hot water bottles, we’re sure you will be warm and cosy, even on the chilliest of nights.
The woodburner will be laid ready for your arrival. Please do ask the team if you need a hand.
Please remove muddy boots before entering. Boot brushes are on the steps, and they will stay dry under shelter outside of the hut. There are hooks to dry out wet clothes. If you get soaked in a rain shower please ask our team to dry out your clothes.
A unique aspect of Elmley is that we are off grid, so generate our own electricity. Your hut has electricity, but please be mindful of excessive use.
4G can be picked up across the reserve, but we do recommend you switch off and soak up the nature around you.
If you need wi-fi it can be accessed from the Linhay or from the Farmhouse, or please speak to the team.
The cabins can sleep an additional two children. Please note they are crafted to a shepherd's hut design so floor space is limited and beds will need to be stored away in the daytime. For safety the wood burner cannot be used when the fold out beds are in use as the fires take some time to cool.
Martha's Hut The extra small double bed is found beneath the main bed, and simply pulls out as a drawer would. As long as it has been requested in advance, the bedding will already be made up.
The Roost: The sofa turns into a small double bed. Bedding will be stored under the main bed. Please be aware with the sofa bed unfolded there is limited room for a travel cot also and for an infant and child we recommend Martha's or one of the large shepherd's huts.
