Teybrook Orchard Silo

Great Tey, Essex, England

A romantic converted grain silo hidden away in the woods. Stay on a glamping site just 45 minutes from London. Closed in winter.

This glamping site is tucked away in the peaceful Essex countryside, surrounded by an apple orchard and 20 acres of woodland. The site offers a romantic Grain Silo perfect for couples. The glamping site has a woodfired hot tub - on request.

The cosy converted Grain Silo sleeps 1-2 people and has a double bed plus furnishings, sumptuous drapes and throws and is nestled in the heart of the woodland. It has a wood burner for chillier evenings and is located a short walk from the communal garden kitchen and wash house.

There are both indoor and outdoor dining areas as well as a fully equipped communal kitchen and BBQ area with newly installed pizza oven! If you prefer not to cook yourselves, there is a restaurant at the farm. A cosy woodfired hot tub is available to guests at Teybrook Orchard, the glamping site. This will no doubt be highly popular with all the glampers, particularly the Hen parties. If the British weather fails to impress then a large marquee offers a dry communal space and holds a table tennis table and football table for your entertainment. 

This glamping site is ideally located just 45 minutes from London, yet you can still enjoy a tranquil countryside setting. The area has plenty of beautiful walks and cycling routes to enjoy and Colchester is just 10 minutes away. You can also visit several nature reserves and bird watching sites nearby.
