General

Church Farm is a mixed, ecological farm, producing the widest range of meat, fruit and vegetables. We serve fresh food from the farm at the Farm Butchery & Store, Farm Cafe and Jolly Waggoner Pub. Our artisan baker bakes delicious organic breads in our farm bakery.

Bring your family, friends and tents and camp in the wild.

We have conventional toilets and a shower at the Farm as well as compost toilets in the camping fields.

Water is free and comes from our own spring.

Alternatively our 10ftx 8ft Wooden Cabins offer a little more comfort. They sleep 2 adults with a double mattress bed (there is room for you to fit a single/ childs bed too - not supplied) and all the cabins have a simple wood burning stove for chillier nights, please see pictures below. You can fit other tents around the cabins to make your own "encampment"

No need to go anywhere! A real country experience.
