The huts are built on recycled caravan chassis, the roofs are made from an old corn bin many of the windows and doors are reclaimed. Much of the timber used for the flooring and worktops was sourced on the farm, from trees that fell in the 1987 storm.
The low voltage lighting runs from a solar panel mounted on each hut, and provides enough light for comfortable usage, but not enough to cause any real light pollution. The heat is generated from logs, which are sourced from a sustainable coppicing programme around the farm as well as the pruning’s from our cider orchards, which would otherwise be considered a waste product.
Camping: We have 3 beautiful campsites available at Quarry Farm. Hop Pickers' Wood Campsite is sited in a little wood not far from The Huts which houses 15 pitches. It provides a secluded site with a unique Hop Pickers' Cook House. A communal covered space complete with open fire, great for cosying in on a rainy evening. A shepherd's hut houses 2 loos, 2 piping hot showers and washing up facilities.
