We were recommended The Farm Camp and I immediatly leapt on the opportunity having feared that all the glamping sites I had previously looked at appeared over crowded and lacked privacy.
The Farm Camp is a different story entirely! It comprises three really lovely bell tents, all with a rustic feel. The beds were very comfortable and despite the pitter patter of August rain on tent it was lovely to be able to light the fire and candles and bed down. We had an amazing massage in the tent one afternoon which was a real treat and something I would definitely recommend.
None of the tents overlook each other, in fact you would be hard pushed to hear the other glampers. To be able to look out of the tent 'door' in the morning across sheep filled fields was so relaxing. It was really nice to be able to walk across the fields to breakfast at the neighbouring farm shop. Breakfast was delicious and the shop was also the perfect place to pick up a delicious steak to stave off the sunday blues with when our departure finally came around. It goes without staying that the local pub is also very welcoming and serves yummy food.
There are plenty of activities on offer; the hilarious sheep herding... These sheep are certainly not trained...not did they sign up for being chased around the field by amateurs! We also took on a long cycle ride along the canal to bath which was really fun and most importantly flat!
All in all it was a very enjoyable weekend. Tim could not have been more helpful and welcoming and I look forward to checking in again next year.
