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).
