Holiday accommodation

We care about the environment and do what we can to help make a difference. Marris Barn is fully sustainable, using solar power and ground source energy throughout. We only use low energy light bulbs, actively reduce waste and encourage recycling at all our properties. There are solar panels at Beach Cottage also.

The gardens are all wildlife-friendly – so you will see lots of butterflies and bees if you look closely. Plus Little Walk Cottage has an owl box with a resident owl and Marris Barn has bat bricks and two owls boxes. See if you can spot them enjoying some night-time fun whilst you’re here.

But we don’t stop there …

Around the farm

James and Emma (and their extended family) farm in a conservation-friendly manner and are part of a Higher Level Stewardship Scheme. You will see:

  • Grass margins have been left along all watercourses and in addition extended field margins to encourage the iconic (but sadly declining) English Partridge.
  • Field corners have been planted with wild flowers to encourage pollen and nectar loving species.
  • We have an ongoing tree planting scheme, particularly in our parkland.
  • The introduction of barn owl boxes have led to successful breeding.
  • A Neolithic long barrow is a scheduled ancient monument.
  • We include partial use of min-till cultivation techniques to reduce soil disturbance.
  • All the breeding cattle are in a Cattle Health Scheme and both the beef and arable products are in Crop Assurance Schemes.

Our history

Hall Farm Conservation began with the development of Little Walk Cottage, a conversion of a redundant stable. Following that, Marris Cottage, a small brick and pantile former shepherd’s cottage was added to the portfolio in 2009. Then The Stable Wing was prepared for business-only lets in 2010 – it has a wonderful view!

Marris Barn (our flagship property) was the next to be completed in 2012, with assistance from EMDA. Then in 2015 we began work on Beach Cottage, in Anderby Creek. It has metamorphosised into a coastal gem, and enjoys breath-taking views out to sea.

2017 saw the arrival of The Top Lodge as a second property providing business accommodation. At peak holiday times this can also become more holiday accommodation.

Then in 2019, we diversified again and began to accommodate guests looking for a venue to host a Wedding Blessing or those wanting to celebrate and renew their vows. Also in 2019 Marris House was added to our business let portfolio.
