Feather Down Farm Days

Dotted around the UK (and also available in France, as Un Lit au Pré and in Holland as Het Betere BoerenBed, as well as in Germany, Ireland and Swizerland), Feather Down Farms offer family glamping breaks on working farms. Each farm varies, but all offer warm, spacious tents with log-burners, fluffy duvets, real loos and bed and kitchen linen. Over the past two years, more than 90% of guests have rated their stay as ‘excellent’ or ‘very good’.

Scroll down for our hand-picked recommendations for holidays with Feather Down Farms. 

If you’re after a camping holiday so the kids can embrace the great outdoors and cook sausages over the fire but can’t bear the hassle of pitching a tent, this might be your answer. You can leave your tent gathering dust in the attic and set off for a camping holiday with a difference. 

You’ll all reap the benefits of the great outdoors and your kids will get to know the ins and outs of a working farm without having to rough it. Working loos save the grimaces from sensitive souls and wood-burning stoves in your pitched glamping tents add to the ambience. There’s no electricity so fans of gadgetry will feel short-changed until they succumb to the charm of an idyllic lifestyle that’s reminiscent of days gone by.

Kids will love the chance to meet the farm animals (you’re all given a tour of the farm on arrival) and pet a goat or two. A welcome pack keeps you going for a while but after that you’re on your own and will have to head out to chop wood and forage for supper. Well, not quite. Honesty boxes are on all the sites and allow you to help yourself to provisions.

The kids will run wild for the duration of your stay and may not even want to use the showers that are normally a short stroll from your base. If you can’t get to grips with the wood-burning stove, you can look forward to the pizza night, which is a chance for you to meet all the other guests and put your feet up. 

Accommodation is mainly luxury tents or “canvas lodges” that sleep up to six, all very comfortable but if you really are an urbanite you can upgrade to the “canvas frills lodge” which is like something out of The Little House on the Prairie, all cutesy wooden interiors filled with rustic charm and your very own hot tub.
