Welcome to Underhill Farm

Where less is more

In a world of consumerism, overpriced products and excessive consumption, isn’t it time to find the true luxury of staying in a place that is built from materials from the past, harness the sun’s energy for electricity and use nature to create harmonious cottages linked to mother earth?

A place where every single window and door has been up-cycled, and no doors or windows are purchased new. A place where plastic furniture and chipboard fittings have been banished. Where the sun powers the electrical needs through solar voltaics, and permaculture and sustainability rules.

The land comes first and cottages are built to enhance nature and the surrounding countryside, not the other way around. Underhill is a place where nature and the land dictates where buildings reside so that her most beautiful assets can shade, shelter and entrance you.

Where items cannot be reused or up-cycled, new products are bought locally to reduce transport (bricks come from Worchester, structural timber comes from Somerset West). Where wine bottles become windows, pallets become furniture and discarded wood become walls and ceilings.

A green oasis of rolling lush lawns, olive orchids, and gently swaying shady ancient oaks and poplar forests

Oak trees, sod roofs and solar panels provide shade and coolness in summer, and alien black wattle invaders create warmth for your fire in winter. Every cottage is carefully nestled in the farm, invisible from one another, yet each with its own unique view, landscape and privacy.
