Each season has its charm, with Feather Down you will enjoy the cool summer evenings spent on the terrace of your tent, as well as the long winter evenings with the family around the wood stove in the cabin. During your stay at the farm, there are many educational, relaxing, and awakening activities for your children: discovery of the farm, the countryside, nature, agricultural professions (breeding, culture …). Whatever the time of year, you will spend a pleasant family holiday in quality, unique accommodation.
Spring with its mild temperatures, blooming plants/flowers, and days getting longer, is an ideal season to witness the awakening of nature. It is also lambing season! Each year, we witness a real “baby boom” on all farms. You will find in particular lams, calves, which you can help bottle them. You may also attend a birth during your stay! In addition, many activities are organized by farmers during Easter for the children (egg hunting, painting workshop, etc.). During this special weekend, you will also benefit from a free breakfast hamper for the whole family! Read more about Easter weekend.
In summer, wake up gently to the song of birds, the faint sound of animals grazing next to your tents or the clapping of the river flowing near the farm. Even if each season has its charm, summer is the best time to make the most of long days outdoors and discover nature. During these hot days, you will appreciate the hot tub or dipping in the pond/river/lake.
18 of our destinations are close to a water point, click here to see. Some of our farms also have a hot tub you can enjoy! Finally, the cool summer evenings spent around a campfire grilling marshmallows and telling stories are priceless!
Autumn with its orange-hued landscapes, golden leaves, and soft sunbeams gives your family vacation a magical touch. Put on your boots and go for a walk in the forest to take advantage of the pleasures of autumn: collect mushrooms, go hunting for chestnuts … After this invigorating walk in the autumn freshness, there is nothing better than to find yourself at the table to taste a delicious stew together as a family! During the special “stewpot” weekend, you will receive a basket filled with all the ingredients necessary to cook a stew to be “cooked slowly” on the wood stove …
Our log cabins are spacious and comfortable, and to keep you warm there is the woodstove and thick blankets. Take advantage of this winter vacation to play cards, drink a good hot chocolate and enjoy a good soup all together! In some of our farms, you will even have the chance to wake up in the morning and see the snow around you. See which of our locations in the UK has a log cabin.
