General

  • Among fields and woods on a working farm in Hertfordshire countryside
  • Feed the animals, hunt for eggs, walk the trails
  • Café, bakery, shop, pub; all serving fresh produce from the farm

Amid the tiny villages, broad fields and winding lanes of Hertfordshire, a stay on this friendly farm site is a chance to take the air and move to a different pace. More than that, it’s an opportunity to see farming and wildlife up close, and have bags of fun while you’re at it.

The pigs and goats, sheep and hens on this mixed eco-farm may well come and say hello; the whole family can join in the feeding sessions and kids will love foraging through the undergrowth to find eggs for breakfast (have them with just-baked bread from the farm’s ovens). Or let someone else do breakfast for a change: they dish them up all day at the café.

In the evenings, build your own campfire and grill bangers bought right from the farm shop or head to the village pub for home-cooked and locally grown grub. On Saturdays in the summer months you can join in the farm’s mighty communal barbecue and singsong. (Or just hum along if you're not much of a crooner.)

Local attractions

Take the woodland trails on the site to spot the wildlife of the area, such as kites circling the skies, bats flitting in the trees, and barn owls hooting at night as you're getting toasty by the campfire (look out for badgers too).

Off site, head to the Tudor pile of Knebworth Castle (20 minutes’ drive), to roam around the palatial house and grand gardens, have a brontosaurus encounter on the life-sized Dinosaur Trail and top it off by making like monkeys in the adventure playground. Or you can all reach for the skies at the Imperial War Museum Duxford (30 minutes), to get up close to Spitfires and Vulcans while wandering through a century of aviation history.

Medieval Cambridge (45 minutes) makes a good day trip, where you can punt down the River Cam past the stately colleges, or picnic in the botanic gardens. Open-top tour buses make a sedate way to see the sights, or you can hire bikes (watch out for cobbles).

Though part of the university, the Museum of Earth Sciences is geared towards young minds and hands-on experiences, from fossils to earthquakes and dinosaurs to volcanoes. After discovering the secrets of rocks, you could all try climbing: not many hills round here but Clip n Climb Cambridge has 20 indoor challenges for beginners and mountain goats alike.

Must see

  • Knebworth House (6.3 miles)
  • Hatfield House (12.5 miles)
  • Wrest Park (14.5 miles)
