Tip: If you don’t want to bring your own travel cot, you can book one through us.
Upon arrival you will find a small kitchen pack in the tent. This pack contains 1 hand towel, 1 tea towel and a kitchen cloth.
You can order a towel pack from us (1 bath towel and 1 hand towel) for a small fee per person.
Payment with debit cards is free. All other payment methods, e.g. Visa credit, MasterCard and Paypal transactions incur a £5.50 administration fee.
We advise you to take out our Feather Down cancellation insurance, which is distributed by De Europeesche Verzekeringen. This will cover you for redundancy and illness (terms and conditions apply). The cancellation insurance is 5.7% of the rental cost of the tent. Please read the terms and conditions.
No, you can book the added treats/extras at a later stage up until a week before you go via us, your personal page or directly at the farm. We advise you to book some of the more sought-after extras in advance due to their popularity or limited stock, e.g. bicycles, and activities for children.
No, we only offer midweeks (Monday to Friday), weekends (Friday to Monday) or week stays (Friday to Friday or Monday to Monday).
