General

  • Quiet setting on the edge of a forest
  • On a farm with an equestrian centre
  • Newly built amenities

Wideham Farm is in a quiet location, backing on to King's Forest, just outside the village of West Stow. It is ideal for walkers, cyclists, birdwatchers and those who just want to get away and relax.

The site offers good access to main roads and attractions. The farm is a rehabilitation and training equestrian facility, but you don't have to be 'into horses' to stay here. We have free-range chickens and welcome well-behaved dogs. Guests have access to the site's newly built pavilion shower and toilet block.

Please note we are a quiet adults-only site, in a quiet location. We kindly ask for everyone's enjoyment that guests keep noise to a minimum, with no noise after 10pm. No ball games please.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

    Lovely flat grassy pitches, with good drainage after heavy rain! The toilets/showers were great, kept clean and tidy, smelt so nice and plenty of hot water. Met by friendly owner, Jane who explained all we needed to know, including list of good local pubs/restaurants, which was very useful.

    Wonderful spot on the edge of a large wood with walking/biking trails. During the day the horses graze and play and at night the sounds of owls can be heard. The new toilet/showe block is clean and fresh.

    Disliked: 

    No pubs within walking distance.
