Glamping Essex

Tey Brook Organic Farm offers glamping in Essex on a 400 acre farm 6 miles south west of Colchester, in the village of Great Tey at the confluence of the Roman River and the Tey Brook. The farm benefits from the rich alluvial soil of the river valley which is naturally high in organic matter. The farm is not only host to livestock, vegetables and wildlife but we also have 7 listed buildings which include a 15th century farmhouse, a granary, wagon lodge and large thatched barn which forms part of a medieval hamlet. The Colchester Archaeological Trust has previously excavated a Bronze Age burial site amongst other ancient remains in several of our fields. Nat and Archie BrowningBros. have brought glamping to the farm.

The site is a wonderfully secluded spot tucked away between an apple orchard and 20 acres of woodland with acres of space to roam free. It is a fantastic spot to bring the children for a weekend in the countryside, or to relax with a few friends around a campfire. We are just 50 minutes outside of London, by train, yet nestled peacefully in a tranquil rural setting.

We have an exciting range of quirky accommodation available to our guests, ranging from impressive Tipis from North America to a beautiful hand crafted Mongolian Yurt. Our larger dwellings are perfect for families and friends, whilst the refurbished Grain Silo and Shepherd’s Hut both make for particularly romantic abodes for couples. All accommodation comes with a private firepit/BBQ grill, table and chairs. Inside you will find a cosy double bed, furnishings and bedding. We provide additional single mattresses in some accommodation allowing space for up to four people to sleep comfortably under the stars.

GLAMPING ACCOMMODATION FOR FAMILIES
The below dwellings sleep 4 people. If you are a larger family it may be possible to add additional mattresses. You can either bring your own mattresses/bedding free of charge or rent from us for an additional £25.00.

BALOO TIPI (sleeps 4)
Ideal for families, this large North-American tipi has a double bedstead with 2 mattresses either side. Also included are 2 bed side tables, LED lighting, furnishings, mirror and table at the end of the bed. Carpets, rugs and pillows create a snug feel to the tent. Bedding is provided for as well as extra blankets should you need them. Positioned fairly centrally within the site and hidden within the trees for a real woodland experience.

RAFIKI – TIPI – Sleeps 4
This North American tipi is situated out in the meadow in a prime spot to soak up the afternoon and evening sun. A short walk from the car park as well as the showers and loos.

SIMBA – BELL TENT – Sleeps 4
This luxury bell tent is ideally situated for the afternoon sunshine and is slap bang in the middle of the site, immediately on your left as you enter over the bridge. Across the meadow, a short walk away, you are close to the kitchen, loos and showers.
This tent comes with a double bedstead. Also included are 2 bed side tables, an LED pole light, chair, a chandelier with candles, mirror and table at the end of the bed. Carpets, rugs and pillows create a snug feel to the tent. Bedding is provided for as well as extra blankets should you need them.

COLONEL HATHI – BELL TENT – Sleeps 4

SHERE KHAN – BELL TENT – Sleeps 4
This luxury bell tent is tucked between the Grain Silo and Colonel Hathi. It is approximately 100m from the main facilities, but hidden amongst the trees for a true woodland camping experience.

GLAMPING ACCOMMODATION FOR FAMILIES AND COUPLES

BAGHEERA – BELL TENT – Sleeps 1 – 4
This luxury bell tent is tucked away in a grassy glade in the woods just a short walk away from the loos, showers and kitchen.

Carpets, rugs and pillows create a snug feel to the tent. Bedding is provided for as well as extra blankets should you need them.

MUFASSA – YURT – Sleeps 1 – 4
Perhaps our most unique accommodation as yet, this Mongolian yurt has travelled many miles to finally arrive at our site and we are proud to offer our guests a structure which has been built to endure much harsher climates than ours, and therefore is as snug as you can possibly ask for. The yurt is positioned at the far end of the site. If you are keen to enjoy your own company and have a little more privacy, whilst listening to the brook meander past, then this is the best choice. On the downside – it is the furthest from the kitchen, loos and showers!

MOWGLI – YURT – Sleeps 1 – 4
This 16ft traditionally crafted yurt has been beautifully hand made by a lovely chap from Somerset who has been building these structures for years. The olive colour of the canvas makes it blend in beautifully to its surroundings in the meadow and the interior will take your breath away. The sky light allows you to truly fall asleep under the stars. Apart from the double bed, there is room for two single mattresses if you wish to bring the kids. It is positioned in the far let corner of the site as you enter over the bridge, a short distance from the kitchen, loos and showers across the meadow.

GLAMPING ACCOMMODATION FOR COUPLES

THE GRAIN SILO – Sleeps 1 – 2 people
The Grain Silo is our most romantic getaway, tucked away in the woods at the back of the site. Once upon a time, this structure was used to store grain on the farm following the annual harvest in August. The Silo offers a double bed, bedside tables, furnishings, drapes and throws, rug, lighting, mirror. It too has a skylight allowing you to fall asleep under the stars.

THE SHEPHERDS HUT – Sleeps 1 – 2 people
The Shepherd’s Hut was bought by our great grandfather about sixty years ago and until last summer has sat looking rather sad in an incredibly decrepit state. It has the least space of all our accommodation but is certainly the snuggest with its own little wood burner. It sits in the far right corner of the meadow under an oak tree with a woven grape vine heart hanging beneath it. The loos and showers can be seen across the meadow a short walk away.

We have a complete kitchen on site with an awning for dining undercover if the weather is bad and a communal bbq.

We have 3 hot showers and 3 flushing loos.

In our undercover area we have a tennis table, football table and darts board to keep our guests entertained if the weather takes a turn for the worse.

Pots, pans, cutlery, plates and a complimentary bag of firewood are all provided so all you need to bring is food, drinks and some relaxed vibes.

Dogs are welcome, provided we are notified in advance, they are well behaved, and any mess is cleared up after them so as not to disturb other guests.
