Meadow Keeper’s cottage is a one-off. Hand-built by a local joiner and craftsman, with timber sourced from local woods, the only way to describe it is ‘a higgledy piggeldy cottage on wheels’. It’s a roomy four person space done out with the same care and attention as the Swallowtail Hill Farm bell tents, with a double bed, two singles that double up as benches, a fold-away dining table between them, an indoor cooking area with sink, a small wardrobe and, for chilly evenings, a log burner.
Open the stable doors, and go down the steps to your own fire pit and outdoor dining area. Just to the side is your own Heath Robinson looking (but extremely effective) log fired shower, and opposite is a tranquil wildlife pond. The Cottage sits between two wildflower meadows, and is invisible from anywhere else on the farm.
