At the moment we are on the run up to Christmas, where we might party a little bit too much (burning the candle at both ends), eat a little too much, drink a little too much and probably spend a little too much! Thankfully it's only once a year.
Once the clock chimes midnight on December 31st and we ring in the new year, perhaps we should look at ways we can give our mind, body and soul a break?
A long ...
Well, the clocks have gone back and half term is now over. It's that time of year where we scare ourselves silly, and then head to an organised display to ooooh and ahhhh at the whizzes and bangs. Yep, it's almost Halloween, closely followed by Fireworks night.
Here are a few ideas of what you you can find in the area local to the farm...

Who? Why? What? When?
The glamping side of the farm's business is expanding with the addition of twelve new Lushna glamping pods.
The farm was able to apply for and then receive grant funding for part of the project from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development. It has taken a lot of time (three years) and effort, put in by Robert and Iain to achieve this result.
We are hoping to develop a new and unique glamping site for ...
I thought I would write a blog about hot tubs as our guests ask more questions about these, than anything else.
Our hot tubs are all log fired, purchased from Naked Flame Hot Tubs. We decided on log fired tubs as we liked the natural look and feel and they fit well with Glamping and the great outdoors. They are quiet and don't bubble, so it's like taking a bath in the surrounding nature.
The following properties have hot tubs at ...
We wish all of our guests a merry Christmas and a very happy and peaceful New Year.

Apologies for the slightly dark picture, we finished cladding the CargoPod on a slightly grey day in mid December (2016).
For those who this is the first visit to our website, I hope you'll look at our CargoPod and think what a sophisticated looking Glamping Pod it is. For those who have stayed with us before, or visited our web pages from April 2014 (when the CargoPod was born) until December 2016, they will be looking at something rather alien to them, ...
Paddy at Yoga Buzz is running a fabulous yoga retreat in our cottages this year from 2nd - 4th October. Paddy is a very experienced yoga teacher, she taught at a yoga retreat in Ibiza this summer and this weekend in the Autumn promises to be relaxing and refreshing. Relax in the countryside with the coastline on your doorstep. The weekend is open to everyone, those new to yoga and meditation will be completely looked after and those with more experience ...
Just a short 20 minute drive from Lee Wick Farm, Frinton feels like an exclusive resort once you are 'inside the gates' (now railway barriers). Part of the town still has a feel of the 1920's / 30's about it, partly due to the selection of Art Deco Modernist houses at the far end of the sea front at the east of the town. If you love this style of architecture you wont want to miss out on a walk around ...
Glamping guests have asked in the past if we sell logs, we listened and now we do! †If you are booking a Pod you now have the option to pre-order†a bag of logs for £5. †These are ideal for the fire pits by the†MegaPods and CargoPod.
To order a bag, just mention you would like to buy one (or more) bags of logs when you book, we will then send you a payment link†and once received we'll make sure there is a ...
We love Dedham here at Lee Wick Farm and if we aren't canoeing along the River Stour, we can often be found walking Polly, our†Jack Russell in the picturesque countryside.
The best part is that this beautiful part of the world, made famous by the artist John Constable, is only 30 minutes away from St Osyth by car.

One of the shortest walks we do in the area is this one, †it's a circular walk and takes about ...
