Step back in time to this 70s-inspired cottage set in its own private orchard near Bushy Park. Perfect couples wanting to get away from it all. You can be completely private or wander round the working walnut farm with its extensive gardens and menagerie.

If you need more room, then check out our Harvest Shed.

The space
Enjoy the luxury of soaking in a hot bath on the covered deck, whatever the weather. Please note that while the indoor kitchen facilities are limited there is a gas barbecue for cooking on the deck. In keeping with the vintage theme, the cottage has a well stocked library, plenty of board games and DVDs to pay on the TV (no wifi).

While we may not have all the mod cons but actually, that's what our guests prefer! It’s a great place to dial things back and enjoy a slower pace of life with the farms seasonal variety.

Guest access
The cottage has private drive access and use of it's own orchard block, complete with hammock swinging in the shade of walnut trees.

Other things to note
While pets are welcome, please note along with out stock we also have two farm dogs. The dogs are usally working with us and are locked up at night but they will greet you when you arrive (and possibly when using the BBQ).
