Escape to a simpler life with Kate and James

Located in the heart of the Mendips, this 1,000 acre farm stretches the length of Cheddar Gorge - the ideal spot for a family holiday in Somerset. You will get a peek into the world of sheep and cattle farming with the Small family who have been a part of the Countryside Stewardship Scheme and Red Tractor accredited for over 20 years. Formerly known as Feather Down Cheddar Gorge, Warren Farm welcomes hundreds of lambs during May before they graze land for the National and Somerset Wildlife Trusts. Its wide-open expanses also welcome film crews – you may have seen Warren Farm in episodes of One Man and His Dog, Casualty and Poldark, to name but a few.

Explore the Mendips

Cheddar Gorge has been voted the second greatest natural wonder in Britain, so try the stunning 60 minutes (subject to ability!) Gorge walk to Cheddar and visit the home of its last cheese producer, Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company. Want a city buzz? Bristol and Bath are just 40 minutes away. If you’re feeling beachy, take a trip to the Weston-super-Mare, a 30-minute drive. Somerset has so much to offer and at Warren Farm you are ideally placed for a family holiday in Somerset.

What to do at Cheddar Gorge Farm

With its awe-inspiring size, the farm makes a great natural playground but there is also a real one with its towers, slides, swings and sand pits. While the children play, sit outside on the deck chairs with your favourite book or indulge in some bookable hamper options supplied by Farringtons, an excellent local farm shop. Once the sun sets, marshmallows and hot chocolate from the honesty shop make a great evening treat. Share your adventures round the campfire at the day’s end watching the sunset, before retiring to your comfortable bed.

Dogs are welcome at Warren farm after 1st June.

Going without electricity is our greatest luxury

Pizza Night

The farmer will usually fire up the pizza oven during your stay. Everyone gathers round to tell their stories of the day’s adventures and invent pizza toppings you’ll never find on the high street

Ask the Farmer

The farm tour is a must if it’s on offer. But you don’t wait till then. The farmer will be delighted to tell you more about how what goes on at the farm at any time.

The Farm Shop

It’s great for the basics and usually even better for local produce and low food miles. And every Feather Down farm shop operates on an honesty basis.

We had an absolutely fantastic time at Warren farm. The cabins are excellent, the farmers are so helpful and nothing is too much trouble and the honesty shop is packed full of goodies. The best thing is the children running wild and not worrying about them

We have just arrived home & can honestly say we had the best week at Warren Farm. Everything was well thought out, from the tents, to the activities in the shop. The children loved looking after the chickens & the certificates were a lovely touch at the end of the week. We can’t wait to visit again.

We love our stays at Warren Farm - it feels like coming home! Kate and James are wonderful hosts and the farm is set into such beautiful countryside. We have been several times in both canvas and wooden lodge. Both are so well organised and laid out. We appreciate the opportunity to be forced to slow down, wait for fires to heat up, cook together round one pan and not have the distractions of electronic devices, electricity and WiFi! Stunning walks right from your doorstep across miles of Cheddar plus there is more touristy things down in the gorge (if that's your thing). There is also a Sainsburys for last minute fresh provisions but don't forget the honesty shop at the farm which is great for the bits that you have forgotten! Feather Down Farms are somewhere you go to switch off, take a break from the crazy speeds we seem to live at and go back to basics. Everything is always clean. The flushing toilet and real beds mean you are far from roughing it and there is ample cooking equipment in the kitchen. It's a wonderful way to spend a few days with the family.

Me, my husband and 5 year old son had the best time at Warren Farm on our 4 night stay in August this year. The Canvas Lodge was picture perfect and we felt at home right away. So many nooks and crannies inside to explore! The farm itself is beautiful, set on top of a crest of a valley and perfect for children to explore safely, without having to follow them everywhere because you can see the majority of the field where the chickens, goats, sheep and pigs are kept, from your Lodge. We were lucky as there were 3 other families all with children too, so our son made friends right away. Kate and James where the perfect hosts. They welcomed us warmly on arrival, thoroughly explained everything we needed to know and then left us to it with the offer to find them at any time or text with any questions. They had done such a good job of adhering to the COVID19 requirements, we really felt safe the entire time. Despite some intense weather on our first 2 nights from Storm Francis (an adventure in itself) we were graced with some glorious sunshine thereafter which meant we could enjoy just swinging in hammocks, hanging out at "home" on our deck and eating glorious food on either the outside BBQ or inside full kitchen set up. The evenings lent for dreamy campfire settings whilst toasting the obligatory marshmallows and the sunsets were to die for! Our only regret (which hit us as soon as we arrived) was not booking for longer. It truly was the break we needed. Heaven!

Warren Farm is beautiful with breath taking views. The site is very safe. Lots of safety measures in place re: COVID-19. Plenty of hand sanitizer, wipes to wipe down equipment and anti bacterial spray to use both in the showers and tents. Kate and James work tirelessly to ensure cleanliness and hygiene. The animals are great especially the two pigs Betty and Wilma who made us laugh and enjoyed our food scraps. Nice additions to the accommodation including hammocks, your own campfire and an amazing picnic bench through a little clearing in the trees with incredible views. Perfect for early morning breakfasts and seeing the sun setting in the evening. A perfect break away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. My children are 12 and 17 and loved every moment of it. One of the most memorable times we’ve spent together. Thank you x
