It all started in 2009 when we purchased Waterside, Butts Green for the exceptional views in this beautiful part of the Essex Countryside. Based on the Hertfordshire / Essex / Cambridgeshire borders this is a fantastic place to be and work – so we thought why not share the views with others!
In 2012 Fish Fish Fish was established selling Tropical and Coldwater Fish, Aquarium and Pond Supplies.
In 2017 expansion started with Corsto Web Design setting up offices here and, following the awarding of a grant from The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development, work commenced on Poppy’s Barn Tea Room in 2018.
Opening Summer 2019, Poppy’s Barn aims to provide all our guests a relaxing place to enjoy breakfasts, light lunches, tasty cakes and some of the best teas and coffees available – whilst enjoying views of some of the best countryside around and the tranquil sounds of running water.
So if you're cyling along our lovely country lane, walking along the wonderful footpaths, riding through the bridleways or touring the byways, why not take a break at Poppy's Barn Tea Room and soak up the atmosphere.
