About Tey Brook Orchard

Tey Brook Organic Farm offers family glamping getaways in the Essex countryside on a farm 6 miles south west of Colchester, in the village of Great Tey with impressive Tipis, hand crafted Mongolian Yurts and spacious bell tents. The glamping site is a wonderfully secluded spot tucked away between an apple orchard and 20 acres of woodland with acres of space to roam free.  It is a fantastic spot to bring the children for a weekend in the countryside, or to relax with a few friends around a campfire. There is a fully equipped kitchen area and an undercover games zone with a football and ping pong table to keep you entertained. Glamping season is from mid May to end of September.

There's loads of fun to be had in a 20 acre wood. The kids will scamper off to explore the great outdoors; build dens, hide and seek and enjoy natural play. The girls, boys and the grown ups will equally have a fabulous time - jumping ditches, making friends, getting covered in dirt - good wholesome kid fun. There is an atmosphere of friendliness where families can get to know each other and children make new friends and play happily together.

Tey Brook Farm

The farm is not only host to livestock, vegetables and wildlife but there is also 7 listed buildings which include a 15th century farmhouse, a granary, wagon lodge and large thatched barn which forms part of a medieval hamlet. The Browning Brothers, Nat and Archie enjoyed many a carefree day growing up on the farm, climbing trees, building dens and scrambling down the riverbanks to leap across the water. It was their love of the great outdoors and this unique place that has inspired them to set up this glamping site onTey Brook Orchard so that youngsters have a chance to experience this carefree natural outdoor playground.  

Family Glamping Accommodation

With an exciting range of quirky glamping accommodation available to families, including 6 bell tents and 2 yurts which are the larger dwellings, the kids are going to be thrilled at the prospect of camping at Tey Brook Farm. The refurbished Grain Silo and Shepherd’s Hut both make for cosy abodes for couples if grandparents fancy joining inon the fun. All accommodation comes with a private firepit/BBQ grill, table and chairs. Inside you will find a cosy double bed, furnishings and bedding. Additional single mattresses can be provided in some accommodation allowing space for up to four people to sleep comfortably under the stars. Thereis now electricity in each tent so an LED lamp is provided with two USB points for charging phones and another plug socket. All other lighting is from candles.

On-site Facilities

There is a complete kitchen on site with a small awning for dining undercover if the weather is playing up and a communal bbq.  Pots, pans, cutlery, plates and a complimentary bag of firewood are all provided so all you need to bring is food, drinks and some relaxed vibes. Each tent also comes decked out with it's own fire bowl/bbq perfect for toasting marshmallows under a starlight sky. There are 3 hot showers and 3 flushing loos on the site. With the unpredictable British weather the undercover area really does come into it's own, set up with table tennis and football table to keep youngsters entertained if the weather takes a turn for the worse.Well behaved dogs are welcome, with prior notification.

Location and things to do

It takes less than 15 minutes in the car to reach Colchester Zoo, a great family day out with over 260 rare species alongside a host of native animals. Frinton-on-Sea and Clacton-on-Sea are also a 40 minutes away, two of the most popular seaside resorts on the East Coast. For rail enthusiasts take a trip on the Colne Valley Stream Railway. A local company can provide larger families with bikes, kayaks, canoes, archery and other fun outdoor activities so it is a good idea to book this up prior to arrival.
