Bellbrook Farm Annex, which is partly made from cob and dates back to the 16th century, has been newly decorated and furnished in a warm country style and is all on one level. There are two large bedrooms that are made up as a SuperKing double and a generous twin, a bathroom with large shower and an open plan living area with a well equipped kitchen. There is Sky TV, internet access, two comfortable sofas and a selection of games and books for those wet weather days! The cottage forms an annex set next to the owner's farm house and is set down a quiet country lane. It is one of two holiday properties and forms part of a working Trout Fishery and small holding covering 40 acres and boasting seven lakes. It is a perfect spot for nature lovers with deer, badgers, kingfishers, birds of prey and dragonflies all in residence.
The large, private garden is very secure for pets and children and, as well as having a lawned area, boasts several areas dedicated to the natural flora such as bluebells, hellebore and primroses.
We aim to make your stay as relaxing as possible and to this end we have provided the everyday essentials from salt and pepper to cling film. Complementary tea, coffee and sugar are provided and you are welcomed with our own free range eggs! Dogs and children are most welcome and a travel cot and high chair are available free of charge.
We also aim to be as eco-friendly as possible and most of the electricity and heating are provided by solar panels and a biomass boiler.
Here on the farm we breed our own rare breed sheep and at the right time of year our fields are full of lambs. We also have a pair of pet pygmy goats who love a cuddle! There are many beautiful walks right on our doorstep and of course there are the grounds of the fishery to explore. Bellbrook is also an ideal base for walking, riding, cycling or trying your hand at fly fishing. If you wish to try Fly Fishing we have equipment hire and a suitable lake for beginners:)
We are easily accessed from the A361 - the M5 is only 15 minutes away. The local villages of Bampton and Rackenford have welcoming pubs with local ales and good food.
