Facilities

Wash

A large washing block with showers, flushing loos and beautiful composting toilets. There is a family bathroom with a changing table and under cover washing up area with hot water and a recycling point.

Play

The hill fort to run free, outdoor  ball games area, indoor games barn, fishing nets for dipping in the stream: the farm is a playground for children! They can play on the rope swing, use the trails, dam the stream and play hide and seek in the long grass. There is also space for rounders, cricket, football, badminton & table football; as well as a sand pit and skittles in the indoor play area. Toys & board games in the barn.

Shop

Our farm shop is an honesty shop selling a few basics, as well as our farm produce (eggs, sausages, lamb burgers, salad bags and veg). We also sell wood and a few fair trade children's souvenirs. There is a fridge for campers to share and an opportunity to freeze blue blocks. On a Wednesday a portable fish shop visits the campsite.

Barn & Bar

We have comfy sofas, books, toys and board games in our converted barn. A large floor space allows children to set out the wooden train set and play with the cars. Books can be borrowed, cakes eaten and phones charged. A cosy hideaway in times of poor weather! We also serve a Big Barn Breakfast every Monday and Friday in the barn.

Fire

Each pitch has a fire pit. We supply fire wood, kindling and fire lighters - or learn how to light a fire without matches on the bushcraft course. You can bring your own wood but please do not take wood from the hedgerows or lanes on or around the site.

Cake

Delicious homemade cakes appear in the Barn every day, including gorgeous flapjacks, chocolate brownies, sponge cakes and chocolate crispy cakes. Enjoy a treat while  you're away! Mmmm.

Trails

There are trails for children to follow around the site and into the "wilderness". Building areas, a stream to dam, the wildlife challenge stamp trail and an orienteering route. Just ask for a map and take the challenge.

Sustainability

We're committed to sustainable tourism, last year we recycled 65% of our waste. We have a range of bins for recycling glass, card, metal and compost bins for food waste. Two of our 5 loos are compost toilets - which avoid polluting gallons of fresh water and produce compost for our trees. We have planted over 1500 broadleaved native trees throughout the site to increase biodiversity. We use a large biofuel boiler to heat our lodges.

Animals

Each morning, with or without parents - children can help us feed Sausage & Bacon our two pigs, cuddle the lambs and take the "chicken on the head challenge".
