About us:

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 where rocks have been arranged as part of small camps and enclosures.

Over our many years in this business we have used various booking agencies but generally we have gone back to doing it all ourselves even though we cannot out market these big agencies with their big budgets. Currently, with the exception of the Old Barn, none of our properties can be booked via any third party booking site and they can all be booked directly with us, which enables us to answer any specific questions you may have about the properties or the area. Booking directly also mean there are no hidden additional 'booking fees' which can often be found when booking through some agencies.
