Great Wall Fresh is a restaurant, guest house and Chinese country home in Chenjiapu, a peaceful village beside a ramshackle stretch of the Great Wall.
Although just over an hour from Beijing, it is rarely visited by tourists – you can hike undisturbed along the wall for hours and return to cold beers and a meal prepared with just picked vegetables by your hosts, the Chen family.
Great Wall Fresh is on the Chen family’s farm. Their produce, grown without pesticides or artificial fertilizers, is cooked according to simple country recipes. Rooms in the family home are basic but warm and cosy, and family members are happy to guide you over the area’s hills and through its valleys, on well planned hikes. They can also help you to get to Chenjiapu.
