77 acres of rolling parkland just off the M4 will be your Feather Down on this glorious Berkshire farm and deer safari park - the ideal spot for a family holiday near London. You’ll also meet pigs, goats, Dexter cattle, ponies, donkeys, chickens, rabbits, guinea fowl and even reindeer at this veritable menagerie.
Only a 15 minute stroll from the farm, Bucklebury village is recorded in the Domesday Book and was the home of Kate Middleton before she married Prince William. Drive a bit further and you’ll come across Highclere, the fictional setting for the TV series Downton Abbey. The area also has its fair share of eateries with The Woodspeen enjoying a Michelin star, and numerous award winning pubs and restaurants.
Wake up from your comfy beds in the morning and take part in farm activities like tractor rides or “be a farmer for the day” where you get to go behind the scenes. Unleash the children to explore the playground, take a go-kart for a spin around the farm or play games in the den-building area - what could be better for a family holiday near London?
Whilst they get creative, you can enjoy a ‘forest bathing’ in the calm of the woodland’s nature trail, which offers a rich variety of beautiful flora and fauna. After an active day around the farm, cosy up around the wood stove and complete your night with a dinner over candle-light.
Bucklebury does not allow guests to bring their dogs due to the resident animals on site. Also check-in needs to happen by 7pm when the park closes.
