Essex may be one of England’s most talked about counties, thanks to reality TV. But there is more history and natural beauty to it than meets the eye. Our canvas hideaways at Layer Marney nestle in the shadow of the tallest Tudor gatehouse in England and a stone’s throw from the atmospheric Essex coast-line. The beauty of its salt marshes and tidal inlets will come as a great surprise to those who know Essex only through TOWIE. Leave your prejudices at the door and book a stay steeped in history at Layer Marney, the ideal spot for a family holiday in Essex.Discover our farms
Modelled on a typical farm-house from a bygone era, our canvas hideaways are more than spacious enough to house your family and animals now, as they were back then. Our canvas hideaways can be both a space to chill - with a sofa and comfy beds - and a space to play in. Not only are there all manner of nooks and crannies to hide in, the canvas hideaway increases in size when you open up the front to include the canopy.
Your canvas hideaway comes with fresh running water, a fully equipped kitchen, a flushing toilet, and comfy beds - all the luxury you’ll need. But unlike back then, you can now choose a private shower. Book a canvas hideaway in Essex with Feather Down for an unforgettable holiday experience.
