There is a good sense of privacy around Ryeland hut, due to the natural screening and planting all around. There are currently just two structures onsite which are well spread out from one another but could equally make a perfect getaway for friends wanting to be together but with their own private facilities.
There is a small shop located on the farm with a range of gift items and our own branded food items such as preserves, BBQ relish, picnic pickles and chutneys, cereals, crisps, snacks, and Belvoir Presse bottled drinks, ECO Chic cool bags, picnic blankets, bamboo cups, BBQ coal and other items.
Brook Farm is home to a selection of lovely animals including two Arabian horses, two ponies, pet sheep - one of which is a Coloured Ryeland which the hut is named after - chickens and Golden Retrievers Barley and Jack. A range of holistic therapies in the Walnut Barn, are available on site. A lightly used footpath runs nearby giving instant access to Tiptree or Messing village where there is a pub serving great food.
Bourne Mill National Trust is close by, the mill was originally built as a fishing lodge in 1591 and features stepped “Dutch” gables. There is a millpond and some of the machinery, including the waterwheel which is intact and working and also Colchester Zoo.
Ryeland Hut (QU7632) can be booked with Shepherds Belle & Croft Hut (QU7633) to accommodate upto 4 guests.
