  • You could easily spend an hour or so on our tracks and grass margins and you would see brown hare, partridges, pheasants, yellow hammers and tree sparrows throughout the year. The summer months bring the sound of skylarks overhead and our special treat is to catch a glimpse of a family of Barn Owls nesting in one of the owl boxes we’ve put up.

Life Hill Farm offers flexible self catering accommdation by combining any ar all of our en-suite bedrooms with the kitchen and living room facilities.  This means that if there is only the two of you you can have one bedroom and the price of your stay reflects that.  For large parties of up to eight people you can combine all the bedrooms, including the large family room and you also have the use of our lovely dining room.  However two bedrooms are annexe rooms, immediately adjacent to the living accommodation so it is not ideal for young children unless sharing the family room with Mum and Dad. 

All the bedrooms have en-suite facilities and have Flatscreen, digital TV/DVD players and tea trays.  They are all furnished to the highest standards and one double bedroom has facilities for disabled visitors. 

The cosy living room has an open fire range, digital TV and DVD player. 

The open plan kitchen has a ceramic hob, fan assisted oven, microwave, washer/dryer. 

The accommodation opens onto a patio area and the hard tennis court.  The tranquil walled yard is all enclosed so young children can enjoy the space whilst Mum and Dad enjoy a rest. 

Beyond the gate is 500 acres of open countryside which we are proud to say hosts some of Englands jewels on the wildlife list.  There are brown hares, skylarks and nesting barn owls to name a few.  Come and see how many you can spot!
