Local Area

As we are a working farm, there are plenty of farming activities to see, farming never stops!

After our first successful retreat in September, we are excited to offer 4 (at present) during 2024. Check out the events page for details.

We also offer Crafty Glamping courses for those who would like to try their hand at creative crafts.
