You are welcome to use the barn as a camping barn or you can use our converted bunkhouse or simply pitch your tent in the surrounding paddock.

We have a large communal fire pit area but are happy for you to have your own camp fire for that real outdoor experience. You are welcome to adventure on the designated areas of the farm and if you really want a magical adventure we have The Gatherings Fields walks with guided map and lots to see on the way. If you want a picnic hamper we are happy to supply if for a small group.

We even have our very own storyteller for a candle lit bedtime story with hot chocolate before you return to your tent for a peaceful nights sleep.

Facilities

We have a back to nature approach here but you will be warm and have toilets and showers. If you explore and the heavens open then don’t worry we have plenty of space to hang wet clothing and waterproofs. Wellingtons and walking boots are needed for our walks and as we have no light pollution here at the farm torches will be needed for those wanting a night time walk.
