School Barn Farm provides luxury camping in the Stour Valley and Dedham Vale (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty).
Our yurts are fully furnished with a double bed, solar lights and wood burner. Both yurts are privately located, each with their own space and play area screened with hedging. A nearby shared cabin contains an area with a fridge/freezer, microwave, kettle cutlery and crockery. A barbecue is provided but if you prefer we can cook breakfast for you. There is also a pub at the top of the drive.
When it is not school holidays there will only be our Mongolian yurt erected and you'll have the entire place to yourselves. This is a quiet site so we do not allow music on speakers.
There are also links with the nearby sixteenth century barn which has been converted into a spa and health club. Guests of School Barn Farm are welcome to use the pool, sauna and Jacuzzi at a special day member's rate (over 16s only).

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
