With a contemporary, coastal design, and beautiful furniture, this wonderful space provides a perfect place to gather with wonderful views out of the large windows. Fabulous range style cooker with plenty of pots and pans. TV with DVD. Books and games. Wi-Fi. A separate utility/boot room has a washing machine, dishwasher and plenty of space for muddy wellies and wet coats.
The relaxed and calming open plan space has been designed with gentle gatherings in mind. The central gas fire provides a warm heart to the space, whilst the windows to the marsh on three sides allow the views and call of birds to take centre stage. As well as being available for private rental the cottage also offers a hub to retreats at Elmley with space for 12 yoga mats.
Plenty of outside space
The house has plenty of outside space for BBQs and games. The Reserve wildlife including ducks and frogs in the ponds are your nearest neighbours. Children have the freedom and space to run around, but please be aware that the garden isn't fenced so they must be supervised.
Perfect for birdwatching
The house is in the middle of the Elmley National Nature Reserve so there is wonderful bird watching from all windows.
Families and groups
Children and babies are very welcome. Cots, high chairs, baby baths and toys and books - including a jumperoo - are available on request. The large living area with its nature reserve views is a great space for gatherings. Wi-fi available
Georgina and Gareth
We moved to Elmley, Georgina’s family farm, in 2013 and opened the shepherd’s huts in 2014. Having moved to Elmley from busy office jobs we know the importance of a few days’ escape and know that Elmley is just the place to relax and reinvigorate in peace, breath-taking views and fresh air. Along with Richard at Plankbridge (http://www.plankbridge.com/) we designed the huts to make the most of the views and to be as comfortable as possible. We aim to make sure stays are just what you need, whether it be quiet and relaxed or fun and adventurous. We've thought of most things, but if there is anything else you’d like, just ask.
We have two young children and live on the farm along with Max, the farm terrier, a number of chickens and hopefully soon some pigs. You’ll see Gareth out on the quad bike most days, working with the livestock and surveying the wildlife, so do ask if you’d like a tour or have any questions about the farm.
