Availability & Book Online

Guests are welcome to walk around the farm but we ask them NOT to enter paddocks that are padlocked. We also ask the guest not to feed the horses or donkeys due to strict diets. However, we do have an honesty box full of other animal food and fresh farm eggs.

Please DO NOT wear fake tan if you are planning to use the hot tub during your stay. We understand this is Essex and we love looking glamorous and sun kissed, but the hot tubs will be damaged. If the water is discoloured/green after your stay, you will be charged £80 for the inconvenience caused and for the hot tub to be professionally cleaned. Thank you for your understanding.

No parties allowed or groups of people. Music must be kept to a minimum as we have animals/other guests staying on the farm grounds.

Our check in time is usually 4pm as we give ourselves a larger window to rectify any hot tub or property issues from the previous guests.

Our check out time is 10am unless otherwise arranged.

Guest Reviews

Great secluded property with high tech features and a massive hot tub. There are loads of animals on the farm with peacocks roaming freely which is lovely. Would definitely recommend staying here.


Oh we love staying here. Such a great spot. Love the animals. The stables is always clean and cosy. So many lovely extras. Just a fab relaxing break.


Had a really lovely stay at the stables. Was so relaxing/peaceful. Enjoyed every minute being there. Was able to walk around explore and feed all the animals during the day, then chill out in the massive hot tub of a night. The staff were very welcoming and happy to help you with anything you want or need. Will definitely be going back there 100%.
