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 and discover what goes on behind the scenes on a real working farm. Choose from The Piggery- a cosy cottage; The Humble Hideaway – a romantic, off-grid bolt-hole for two; or The Hayloft – a studio flat at the heart of the farm.
Spend your days swimming in the lake or walking in the woods at Poachers Cabin in the Dordogne, France. This beautifully restored fishing cabin is tucked away in the woods with its own private lake and is perfect for two.
Wake up at the heart of Kate’s working farm when you stay in The Piggery. Part of the original farmhouse, this cosy cottage sleeps four and looks across the fields with sheep, cows and horses. Ideally situated for exploring the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean, there’s plenty to do in the area for guests big and small.
Grab your wellies and spend a morning helping Farmer Tim with his jobs around the farm: feeding the animals or mucking out! Collect your own eggs for breakfast from the chickens in the garden or young farmers will love to play on the pedal tractor.
Get a real feel for farm life by staying in the old Hayloft. Positioned at the heart of the farm on the upper floor of our Long Barn, the beautifully restored Hayloft is an ideal getaway whether you’re taking part in a course or just fancy a break in the beautiful Monmouthshire countryside.
Walk up the original stone steps of the c.18th barn to the Hayloft and admire the beautiful views across the fields. The apartment is bright, airy and perfect for two, a travel cot and blow up bed are available for smaller visitors on request. At the bottom of the stairs there’s a small garden looking across the fields with hand-made table and benches, perfect for breakfast and watching the lambs.
Spend a morning with Farmer Tim: don your wellies and find out what goes on behind the scenes of this working farm. Bottle-feed the orphan lambs in the Spring, muck out the pigs and check on the goats.
The off-grid Humble Hideaway is the perfect place to get away from the world and enjoy the great outdoors. The shepherd’s hut and GWR lamp hut are hidden in a fenced-off wooded glade surrounded by fields and are only accessible by 4×4 or on foot.
The Plankbridge Shepherd’s Hut is a cosy place to rest your head and the beautifully restored GWR Lamp Hut – used originally for storing railway lamps – is the neatly designed kitchen and shower room.
Kick back and relax in the hammock and discover the delicious taste of wood-fired cookery when you light the fire pit. Don’t worry if you’ve never tried it before – it comes with outdoor cookware and a cookery book to get you going! The delightful outdoor wooden furniture was all hand-made on-site using wood milled from the farm.
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.
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.
Pets are welcome by prior arrangement only.
