Glamping at Teybrook Orchard

Glamping in Colchester, Essex at Teybrook Orchard is a wonderfully secluded spot tucked away between an apple orchard and 20 acres of woodland with acres of space to roam free. It is a great place to bring the children for a peaceful stay in the countryside or to relax with a few friends around a campfire. We are just 50 minutes outside of London, by train, yet nestled peacefully in a tranquil rural setting.

How It Started

The Browning Brothers have been building dens around Tey Brook Farm since they could escape the grasp of their mum Lucy and get out and about exploring for themselves. From the woods to the open fields, in bushes and long grass up to the very tops of the Poplar trees, they spent a childhood experimenting with hideouts, lairs and bases of all shapes and sizes. Now, mixing youthful enthusiasm with an entrepreneurial spirit, they have turned their childhood love for unusual outdoor accommodation into a business. Guests are invited to share their passion for cosy little hideaways in the countryside with a range of luxury glamping options for all the family.

Teybrook Orchard

To capture all the magic of living it up outdoors, the brothers have even chosen their favourite spot on the whole farm as the glamp site – Tey Brook Orchard. Tucked away in peaceful seclusion between acres of woodland and meadows, you can truly feel as if the stresses of everyday life are a million miles away – even though you are just an hour away from London!

Yurts, Bell Tents and Quirky Accommodation

With so much room to run and explore – and hopefully build a few dens of their own – Tey Brook Orchard is ideal to come glamping with kids. Let them revel in the thrill of sleeping outside in a tent or, even more exotic, a Mongolian yurt while still enjoying the home comforts of real beds. Our luxury bell tents and handcrafted yurts all sleep from 4-6 people, with a double bed and up to four single mattresses each. To add to the sense of adventure, each tent and yurt comes with its own fire pit and BBQ in addition to the communal indoor kitchen facilities – what can be better than cooking and eating outdoors on a fine evening as the sun sets and the stars start to twinkle?
