A VERY SPECIAL GARDEN

A truly special treat. Guests are welcome to explore the gardens and your hosts will be delighted to explain the gardens history. Ellis Stones and Eric Hammond both worked with Edna Walling to make Folly Farm a very special place. You will find all the signatures that are Walling including beautiful Silver birch.

ENGLISH SHEPHERDS HUT

Shepherds huts were designed to be home to the shepherd who could not afford to leave his flock for long. A warm place to nurture a sick baby lamb. These days, our shepherds Hut offers our guests a special vantage to enjoy the garden in all seasons. A beautiful daybed and fire add to the romantic ambiance. Designed and built by Robert at Folly Farm with traditional workmanship including amazing forged wheels made by a local, Hills, third generation blacksmith. Perfect for meditation or a romantic dinner….. maybe a proposal

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely fabulous stay It was one of the best holidays I have had in a very long time. It is a stunningly beautiful property, amazing views and so close to Olinda village. My little dog was made very welcome. It was such a luxury to enjoy a five star place that was also pet friendly. I felt very pampered and spoilt. The hosts had thought of everything- from everything I might need for brekkie to all those little touches that made the stay really special. Definitely coming back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful romantic retreat The cottage was amazing, with fantastic views over the blueberry trees. Every comfort was taken care of, down to the chocolates, bathrobes and slippers. The hosts were incredibly friendly, and even allowed us to hand-feed the Alpacas. Will definitely be staying again in the future. Thanks Belinda & Robert!
