About The Elwes Family
Hi there! We're Marina, Robert, Max, Emily and Leopold - The Elwes Family! We've lived and travelled to many places across Europe so we appreciate the joy of feeling at home in new places and love to host! Our daughter Emily, who mostly lives from Barcelona, Spain, helps us manage our listings, so if you're thinking of spending time with us you're likely to be chatting to her (she's the tech-savvy one)! Based in the countryside we love sharing our farm, yurt and house with guests. On an average day you'll catch us looking after our sheep, gardening and fixing things in the farm. We have a great love of all things creative, holistic and historical. As a family of many varied interests (our professions vary from Archeologist to Shepard to Startup Founder and Carpenter) we regularly host groups for pheasant or clay pigeon shooting, wellness retreats, weddings and archeological digs - take your pick! If you have any questions at all please feel free to message us! We love hearing from you and are very flexible to individual needs. Looking forward to meeting you!
The Elwes Family purchased this Farmhouse in 1991
Why The Elwes Family chose Scunthorpe
The Manor house dates back to Medieval times (it's featured in the Doomsday book) and was restored to become our family home 15 years ago. One of its quirks is that is features over 9 different staircases (perfect for playing hide and seek)! Its name, Sawcliffe, stands for 'Sail' - Windmill, 'Cliffe' - Hilltop, meaning it can be quite a windy spot depending on the time of the year!
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The farm is home to some rather unusual natural landscapes including a wild rabbit warren which has been listed as a SSI (Site of Scientific Interest) and also now home to a herd of wild Exmoor ponies. Today the Manor is also features our 60m2 Yurt (or Yurtl as we like to call it) which we use for family parties, Scottish Dancing and Knott-Tying Ceremonies, a recently renovated Victorian cottage and a former dove-cot turned non-dominational chapel for ceremonies.
