Brook Farm is a rural gem situated in the northern Essex Countryside and ideal location for a relaxing break. Once a dairy farm in the early 1900’s through till 2008 and now an agricultural small holding laid mostly to pasture that is home mainly to our small herd of horses, pet sheep and other animals. It is a haven for wildlife with regular sightings of hare, buzzards circling in the thermals on a clear day, muntjac deer, game birds and other fauna.
Our breaks are aimed primarily for adults wanting to get away from it all or to immerse themselves in nature and rural pastimes or those wishing to get out and about and visit Essex and wider East Anglia.
The Herdsman is a beautiful, spacious one bedroomed barn conversion. The accommodation is all on the ground floor accessed via two wide steps with open plan living through the hall, kitchen, dining area and lounge. Solid Oak doors with Suffolk latches lead to a large bedroom with kingsized bed, ensuite wet room and walk in wardrobe. The Herdsman has its own small private patio/garden.
There is ample parking and shingled paths lead to the wider farm facilities.
Well behaved dogs welcome (see special notes on dogs on our booking page)
