Earthstead Villas is an ecologically sustainable project of Luxury villas and studios for Homestay and Bed & Breakfast travellers. This is a truly unique property and well worth more than one nights stay. Your hosts grow much of their own produce, milk their own cows, bake their own bread, make their own butter and so much more. Guided Tours of the property are available and for the months of September through March there are opportunities to feed the animals, as well as milking the cows!
A delicious breakfast of organic goodness can be ordered at booking.
Daily servicing and free wifi are included in the tariff.
