Description

Stay on Kate Humble’s farm: wake up to the sounds of animals and discover what goes on behind the scenes on a real working farm.

Choose from: The Piggery – a cosy two-bed cottage that’s great for families; The Humble Hideaway – a romantic, off-grid shepherd’s hut for two; or The Hayloft – a studio flat at the heart of the farm.

Bring your wellies and spend a morning helping Farmer Tim with his jobs around the farm: feeding the animals or mucking out! Collect your own eggs for breakfast from the chickens next to the garden.

Don’t feel like cooking? Visit The Pig & Apple cafe on the farm. Open Wednesday to Sunday serving fresh coffee and delicious, locally sourced food.

  • On your arrival you will receive welcome supplies which include milk, butter, bread, eggs from our chickens and cider.
  • Spend a morning helping Farmer Tim with his jobs (£50/ morning).
