The space
In 1970 Roger Deakin acquired Walnut Tree Farm, a semi-ruined Elizabethan farmhouse deep in the countryside of northern Suffolk, on the edge of Mellis Green, the largest area of common grazing land in England. Deakin bought the farm and lovingly restored it, dredging the moat (in which he swam daily), planting woods and buying more of the surrounding fields, where he grew hay and wild flowers.

Walnut Tree Farm became a place of pilgrimage and inspiration for nature-lovers, writers, intellectuals and artists, while Deakin's Waterlog has become a much-loved classic of nature writing and gave impetus to the wild swimming movement.

Guest access
Walnut Tree Farm is set in 12 acres of meadowland and has a fresh water spring moat which you are welcome to swim in.
Please note that the moat is a wild swimming place and is home to newts, dragonflies and our resident moorhen and chicks. We ask that you enter, exit and swim sensitively in order not to disturb the permanent residents. Also, during the summer the moat has a lot of plant growth, we do clear a swim path but the weeds will still caress you as you swim.

Dogs are very welcome as long as they are up to date on flea and tick treatments and that you clean up after them especially in communal areas.
If you have more than one dog especially if they are large dogs please contact me before booking to chat whether I can happily accommodate you all.

Other things to note
Coronavirus & Calendar
If you are desperate to have a night away but can’t get away for two nights then please contact me as there are a few days in the calendar which could accommodate a one night booking but can’t be viewed on the calendar bc of the app settings.

Extra guest can be accommodated, please message me first to discuss.

We provide wood for the burner or barbecue.

Bedding and towels are provided. However as a covid precaution we are asking guests to bring their own towels if possible.

Essentials such as tea, coffee, sugar is provided as well as a range of spices and condiments

The cabin has wifi.

The cabin is listed as a half-bathroom which means a sink and toilet. However there is an outside shower that is a short distance from the cabin. You are more than welcome to use this hot water shower. Please be aware that it is outside and communal.

During your stay
The wood cabin is set in a field away from the main house so your Privacy is guaranteed however we will be on hand to answer any questions or give recommendations for restaurants, things to do etc.


CORONAVIRUS UPDATE.
We are very happy to welcome guests again when the lockdown measures are lifted. We have taken the decision to block a day before and after each guest trip so that we can do a deep clean and ensure everyone’s safety.
Social distancing is very easy to maintain as the wagon and the cabin are set in their own field.
Please note that the bathrooms in both the wagon and the cabin only have cold running water.
There is a hot water outside shower that we are happy for you to use if you wish but we have not listed it as an amenity as it is a communal space.
Feel free to send us a message with any questions you may have.
