Lee Wick Farm Cottages and Glamping began in 2008 with the conversion of a redundant farm building into a four-bedroom holiday cottage, the Cart Lodge.

A substantial “glamping” (glamorous camping) business has since been established in addition, with the latest additions being three Armadilla pods, set in private gardens with decking areas and log-fired hot tubs alongside.

Emma Jezard of Lee Wick Farm Cottages and Glamping said: “The location is everything with views across fields and paddocks to the sea beyond and, with almost zero light pollution, some of the best star gazing to be had.

“There is also wildlife on the door step, quite literally, with regular visits from farm ducks.”

The glamping offer also includes a number of Megapods and a larger CargoPod, with the holiday business also including a second, smaller, cottage, and five pitches for campervans or touring caravans, including two with electric hook-ups.
