GroundhouseSheppey - Main Profile
In 2016 I gained permission to build the UK’s first Earthship style dwelling, in 2017 complete and signed of I am the proud owner of Groundhouse Sheppey. I am 3rd generation bee keeper. I love to see what grows where and to follow natures requests. Set in a 2 acre site with a bounty of wildlife.
The place needs sharing and I have to make business here in some way to make sure I safeguard the landmark in British architecture that is Groundhouse Sheppey. Earthships ARE able to pass the strict planning and building laws in the U K.
Here are some of the ways we intend to facilitate visitors: We will Offer affordable accommodation, some electric hook up points and wild camping to start with.
We have an abundance of wildlife here and are sandwiched between two bird reserves. Campers will have use of a field kitchen, electric shower, water and compost loo. Treats will be available on site, upon visitors requests. We will offer hampers, afternoon teas and home produced goods including honey and pre booked tour and talk about the Groundhouse. We are set off of a bridle path and with stables a five minute walk away who will facilitate lessons and pony club days. A guide to our local beauty spots will be provided as will a list of the resident wildlife.
Covid 19 has been factored in to our plans.
It’s a new baby and we are excited for all the opportunities that this place can offer.
