Brook Farm is a farmstead dating from around 1550, in the Teme Valley amid the lovely Welsh Marches countryside and close to some of the best restaurants in the country. Our farmhouse and holiday cottages nestle in about two acres of much-loved garden surrounded by our woodland and meadows throughout which we are careful to protect the environment and its wildlife.
We have two one bedroom cottages: the Hen House and the Hop Picker's House which are available for self-catering breaks of two nights or more. All you need for your first breakfast (and probably your second) is provided in your welcome hamper of our own eggs and lovely local fare.
In summer a platter of local meats and cheeses can be provided for the night you arrive; in winter you can have some homemade soup and a local burger. You can also ask us to order a box of organic vegetables to go with them. Just let us know what you need and we will sort it!
Linen and towels are provided, as well as locally made soap and other natural toiletries. The kitchens are fully equipped and essentials such as salt, pepper, oil and garlic are provided as is an initial supply of tea, coffee and sugar. Both cottages are centrally heated and have Freeview TV, a DVD player, and wifi for doing your emails and browsing.
The Hen House
The Hen House is the smaller of the two cottages and is attached to the old Hop Kiln, and has a lovely bedroom, a big bathroom with bath and shower, and a long open plan sitting room/kitchen.
The Hop Picker's House
The Hop Pickers' House is much bigger than The Hen House and is on two floors. It has a farmhouse style kitchen with rocking chairs next to the wood burner downstairs and a huge bedroom with four poster bed and a sofa snug open to the rafters upstairs. There's also a bathroom with bath and walk in shower. It's spacious, stylish and snug.
We have two dogs, and a multitude of cats, so cat friendly and well-behaved dogs are also welcome in both cottages. They must be fully housetrained.
