Hop Pickers’ House is a refurbishment of the old travelling hop pickers’ barn accommodation. The building has been welcoming visitors for hundreds of years – and is what we call ‘lustic’ – rustic and full of charm, but in a luxurious kind of way. A perfect spot to relax and get away from it all!
Hop Pickers’ House is situated in a quiet rural location, on the edge of Brook Farm and surrounded by nine acres of gardens, meadow and woodland. This provides a sense of seclusion and tranquillity, as well as a perfect opportunity for a stroll before dinner or a walk with the dog.
Hop Pickers’ House has a spacious open plan layout – snuggle up beside the wood-burning stove, enjoy breakfast at the farmhouse table, settle down on the sofa with a cup of tea or cuddle up in a really cosy king-size four poster bed, listening to the barn owls.
Ground floor: Open plan kitchen (with dishwasher), dining and living area, cosy corner with wood-burning stove and snuggler, TV (Freesat) / DVD. Separate store room and outside seating / dining. Parking outside the cottage.
First floor: Bedroom with king-size four poster bed and sofa area. Bathroom with a free-standing bath, separate shower and WC.
Exposed beams and brickwork ooze character, style and charm. If you’d like a copy of our Access Statement - which describes facilities in detail - do just ask.
We’ll welcome you with some delicious local fare, including our own award-winning marmalade or jam. And we also provide linen, towels and a few essential toiletries. Well-behaved dogs are very welcome - at no extra charge. We’re flexible on start dates - which means you can choose the dates you want. Short two night breaks are available from £250.
If it’s a celebration or special occasion, just let us know – and we’ll work with you to make your stay even more special. Here are just a few ideas…And if you don’t want to cook on your first night, opt for a delicious local cheese board (with crackers, home-made chutneys, nibbles, chocolates and choice of drinks), awaiting you on arrival (£40 for 2).
We think this is a truly special little spot – and really look forward to welcoming you.
