General

Two luxury en-suite Wigwams are situated in the beautiful mature orchard at Hill Farm. The orchard is home to wonderful old apple, pear and damson trees. The tranquillity of the orchard, with its canal side setting and breathtaking views of the Chiltern Hills make this an ideal setting to enjoy a unique glamping experience.

A step back to more tranquil times. Leafy lanes, apples slowly ripening on ancient laden trees, a majestic heron standing guard on the canal bank. Gaily painted narrow boats meander by. Breakfast alfresco, a lazy morning reading, then perhaps a gentle stroll along the towpath to the local pub for a nice lunch.

Whether you seek a solitary weekend escape, some couple time, fun with friends, or to spend quality time with your family, there is so much to see and do nearby. Have a look at our activities page for lots of ideas.

The closest pub is a 5 minute walk from the farm in the village of Slapton and has a fantastic reputation for traditional home cooked food, independent ales and an extensive fine wine list. There are several other pubs within 2.5 miles - a short car or taxi ride away, with one a lovely stroll away along the canal towpath to the nearest lock. See our local interests page for further details.

Hill Farm & Orchard is conveniently reachable from London (Leighton Buzzard station) in 35 minutes on a fast train.
