Our Products

We grow and bale hay and haylage from our river meadows each year, delivery is available.

Coming soon! With our newly purchased log splitter we will soon be able to deliver 4ft x 4ft x 4ft crates of logs to keep your winter fires roaring.

The Thirty stable livery at West Bowers boasts an indoor menage and is set in an idylic labyrith of bridleways.

We grow a long-stalk traditional variety of wheat which Peter Letch harvests and thrashes out to use on roofs all over Essex.

Our Services

Nowhere to store your van? behind secure locked gates we offer caravan storage for twenty vans.

We offer a variety of accomodation from our small grassy campsite to fun bell tents, and our new self-catering barns which sleep 6 people each plus baby.

We converted this old cow shed into the Retreat Holistic Centre. Richard teaches weekly Yoga and Tai-Chi classes while the rooms and sanctuary are let out to therapists and practictioners for the likes of Yoga, Reiki, Massages, Counselling and Chi-Kung. In the summer weekend long workshops are held too.
