Early May bank holiday

Spring on the farm

Enjoy your bank holidays on the farm!

The seasons are lived in high definition at Feather Down Farms, and each has its own special something. Spring is synonymous with renewal, awakening and birth and after a winter of making preparations for the farming year, our farmers and their families are ready. Lambing season begins, the bluebells bloom, the birds return from the south and the natural world is fresh and pretty.

Next to the May Bank holiday long weekend, we are now offering a special short weekend stay Friday 2nd to Monday the 5th of May;

Visit famous Layer Marney Tower, in Essex for £459.
