‘Thank you very much for having us in this beautiful, fairytale like place.  We enjoyed the lightness and the amazing organic food … as well as your very sincere and open hearts.  We felt very welcome and well taken care of.’  Meru & Anand, Sofia, August 2013

We have 2 double bedrooms and 1 twin room. 

 Breakfast in the garden, Bulgaria

‘Arrived back at Wild Thyme Farm from a few days in Abanassi.  It’s an oasis as well as a rural idyll and it was a pleasure to be back – particularly to Chris’ breakfasts.  We shall miss this delightful place as well as Chris & Claire.  Thank you for your wonderful hospitality and for an excellent film.  We’ll be back.’  Chris & Julia, England Sep 2012

A great healthy breakfast made from farm produce is served in the converted barn overlooking the garden. 

Wild Thyme Breakfast

‘A closeness to nature, a rich history and the finest of hosts; what more could you ask for?  We have sent three very full days here and I have done many things for the first time – yoghurt making, cheese making and Thracian tombs.  I even love the composting toilet now.  And there is so much more too.’  Tony, Beawly, Scotland, June 2013

Learn about life down on the farm or simply enjoy a peaceful retreat or stroll around the village.

Like most Bulgarian traditional houses, Wild Thyme had a summer kitchen located in the garden.

Summer Kitchen, Wild Thyme Organic farm and eco-holiday

Ours is a good example with a fine open oven built into the fabric of the wall. We have restored the Summer Kitchen to make a double bedroom.  It is now a beautiful shady room with walls finished in mud plaster and local clay paint and an entrance to the garden.
