Take it easy weekends

Come and stay on the farm and let us take some of the strain

Kids love running wild on site and most parents love the chance to grab a quiet cuppa and sit on the deck taking in the views whilst we whisk the kids away for animal rounds in the morning.

A few of our lovely guests have suggested going a step further and creating part-catered breaks to take the pressure off of parents who really want the chance to relax whilst they are away.  We have created these breaks with single parents in mind but anyone is welcome to book.

So if you want to get away from it all and make the most of your time together as a family come and try one of our 'Take it easy' weekends where we will provide breakfast, dinner and activities on the farm for you all to enjoy.

We'll provide a welcome hamper in the tents on arrival with tea, coffee, hot chocolate, milk, butter, bread and jam and we'll also cook dinner for you on both nights and provide a continental breakfast in the mornings.  We are more than happy to cater for different dietary requirements, please mention these in the notes when you book or get in touch with us so we can ensure we have everything we need for your visit.

You can see a full itinerary for the weekend below.

The dates for the first two weekends are 31st August - 2nd September and 12th-14th October.  If they prove popular we will organise more of them!

Different families are more than welcome to come away together and share tents provided the number of people staying in each tent is no more than six.  Bookings are open to everyone but single parents will receive a 10% discount if travelling alone with their children.  If there is only one adult in your party please use the code SP2018 on your booking to apply this discount.

You can find out more about our safari tents here and if you'd like to read a little bit more about camping vs glamping and the experience on the farm you might want to read our blog 'an adventure not a chore'.

Prices vary slightly depending on the number of people in your party and age of the children but an indicative price for a 3 person family with 1 adult and 2 children (aged 4 & 7) would be £333 for the August weekend and £315 for the October weekend.  2 adults and 4 children (aged 9,7,5&3) would be £440 for the August weekend and £330 for the October weekend.
