Here is the completed CargoPod™ at long last in all it's glorious purpleness. It has taken about 4-5 months to finish, not helped by the bad weather in January.
The first booking was on the 25th April and we have guests arriving every weekend now during May and early June, so get in quick if you would like to book.
The idea originally developed from wanting to offer something different from the MegaPods to add to the ‘glamping’ accommodation here at Lee Wick ...
Our new CargoPod is on well on the way to being completed, here are Colin (on the left) and Jeff looking pleased with their handy work.
The decking is almost finished and the interior has been plastered and painted. The flooring is going to be laid very soon so we can crack on
with the fixtures and fittings inside. We just need to order the sofa bed and double bed and additional little features then it's press launch day
towards the end of April. ...
The rain has finally stopped here at Lee Wick Farm and spring is in the air, the sun is shining and the lane is starting to look pretty again as the daffodils burst in to life.
Now the weather is picking up we can crack on with the new CargoPod, which has had a lick of paint now. Rob chose the colour so I will be blaming him if it puts our guests off! It definitely needs another coat, but it's beginning ...
This picture is of Stable Cottage shortly after 1910
Robert Clarke is the owner of Lee Wick Farm Cottages and Glamping, which diversified from the family’s potato farming and export business.
Rob’s family have ties to Lee Wick Farm dating back to 1910 when Rob’s great grandfather moved to the area with his whole family, plus sheep and horses by horse and cart. The farm at the time was over 700 acres and Rob’s great grandfather managed it.
In the 1930‘s the farm sold ...
It’s the year of the horse this year and I think I must have had too much time on my hands today to come up with the image above!
On the theme of horses, for the horse lovers amongst you, you will find some grazing in the paddocks alongside the Pods and cottages. You could even bring your own away for a break as we have a couple of stables available, alternatively there are lots of local riding schools where you can book ...
We would like to wish all our past, present and future guests, friends, family and business associates a very happy Christmas and prosperous New Year!
CargoPod™? What's a CargoPod™ I hear you ask?
Well it's a project we've been working on since last April actually, when time allows. It's a different type of Glamping Pod and our first one will be ready for bookings in early 2014.
After watching George Clarke's Amazing Spaces this evening we thought, why not mention our new project?
There is still much to do both inside and out but we're so excited about our new Pod and look forward to receiving our first guests ...
There are lots of great restaurants in the local area which offer different types of cuisine for all sorts of budgets. Here are few places we like...
Starting in St Osyth village (15/20 minute walk from the farm), the Indian restaurant 'The Balti House' is well worth trying, authentic flavours and characterful waiters make for a very enjoyable meal: 01255 822224
Fish and Chips? Well you can't get better recommendations than from Rob who is a potato merchant in his other role at the ...
The glaziers fitted the doors on our new project yesterday. We are rather excited about this which will be a new addition to our Pod type of accommodation.
It's not finished yet (should be ready for guests by Easter) and we don't want to ruin the surprise but here is a sneak peak...
