Meet your hosts
Harptree Court is a Grade II listed building and has been run by Linda and Charles Hill since 2003. The surrounding area is rich in history. The village of East Harptree is listed in the Domesday Book as Harpetreu, meaning the military road by the wood. Nearby Harptree Combe is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and also hides a 19th Century aqueduct and the site of a 12th Century castle.
Linda and Charles are working hard to reduce the environmental footprint of Harptree Court. The delicious food they serve uses local and organic ingredients, with free range eggs from just across the road. The Treehouse was built to passive house standards and does not damage the trees it sits in.
The gardens are host to ducks, woodpeckers, deer, foxes and birds of prey. As the name suggest, there are treesaplenty, while the grassy clearings Harptree Combe are home to the scarce Spreading Bellflower and many other uncommon or local plants.
