Time for you to relax
Just because winter is here, it doesn't mean that there is nothing to do and see! In fact nothing could be further from the truth!
Spring will soon be on its way, Snowdrops ae already here and the daffodils are just starting to flower. The shorter days and low light pollution mean stars can be seen in the skies which are invisible in the towns and cities. The roads are quieter and the various things to see and do are less busy. So, if you can, why wait to high season to take a well-deserved break? The only thing to really consider is to bring more suitable clothing, but after having spent the day exploring, what better to come back to a warm snug and cosy Cottage or Scandinavian Lodge to unwind with a big cup of tea, coffee or whatever else takes your fancy!
In addition and available for all our guests
Helme Pasture has been owned and independently managed by the same family for over 60 years, with the move away from a rundown working farm to holiday accommodation taking place in the 1970’s.
Over this time the wood has grown from scrub with a rich history to mature, semi ancient woodland comprising of mainly Sessile Oak, Holly, Beech, Silver Birch and Ash. With this change, an abundance and variety of wildlife have chosen to make the woodland its home. If you look carefully, signs of ancient settlements can be seen, such as ring and cup marks carved into some of the rocks, which themselves once formed part of small camps and enclosures
