Places to Stay

Escape the hustle and bustle

Stay on Kate Humble’s farm in Monmouthshire or her Poacher’s Cabin in France and get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life.

When you visit Humble by Nature you’ll wake up to the sounds of animals right at the heart of a real working farm.

Choose from: The Piggery – a cosy two-bed cottage that’s great for families or couples; or The Hayloft – a studio flat for two at the heart of the farm. Don’t forget to bring your walking boots so you can enjoy the many miles of stunning scenery in the Wye Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Poachers Cabin, France

Poacher’s Cabin is a beautifully restored fishing cabin nestled in the woods at the edge of it’s own private lake.

You’re sure to discover why Kate and her husband Ludo fell in love with this tumbledown fishing shack on their holiday wanderings. Spend your days lazing by the lake, walking in the woods or visit the local market. When the lights go down you can turn on the tea-light chandelier (made from twinkly glass yoghurt pots) and cosy up on the sofa with a book from the library.

  5. Private lake: great for swimming and there’s a raft for paddling.
  6. In the heart of the Périgord-Limousin national park, surrounded by forest and farmland and criss-crossed by off road cycle and walking paths.

Children over 5 years of age are welcome but the cabin is next to an unfenced lake, has a wood-burner and drops from the decking.
