"The days were so long and the kids and adults alike loved the freedom and quiet," commented one guest last year. And, indeed, our farm is a fantastic natural playground for young and old alike, with the River Wyre just a stone's throw from your tent making for an inviting swim or paddle.
Our play barn behind you will leave your local park in the shade, with its straw bales, swing, sandpit and giant slide, while the more adventurous can explore the farm's deciduous woodland, whic provides ample opportunities for den-building.
Back at the farm, The animal population is free to roam too, and there's a good chance that through the early morning mist, you'll catch sight of roe deer in the field in front of your tent.
Though we have hens, dogs, cats, ducks and rabbits, we are a dairy farm whose real stars are our goats. They have plenty to teach you - from milking to caring to feeding - and our younger guests have been known to cry on bidding them farewell. They are the source of our delicious cheese, which goes on the fresh bread found daily in our Farm Larder - perfect for a picnic lunch on the coast, just 15 minutes away.

Perfect Glamping and Crazy Goats!

Liked: The Canvas sided tents are huge and wonderful and once you get the wood burner going, it is toasty and warm. It was cold when we went so it will be even better in the Summer. Bed were super comfy and the kids loved snuggling up in the "Bed Cupboard" at night. Having an indoor Loo is an even better bonus! Farmer John is an absolute star and we all helped out milking the goats ...
Disliked: Having to leave.....
