Experience farm life with a group of friends or family. On your weekend, all our canvas hideaways will be all yours exclusively. You'll have the chance to immerse yourselves in farm life - fetching fresh eggs from the chicken coop first thing, for example. Or you can just chill out and enjoy each other's company.
In the Lake District National Park, Christine and John's sheep farm has 5 canvas hideaways, suitable for a maximum of 25 people.
During our farm takeover weekends the whole place will be exclusively for you, your family and friends. Each canvas hideaway can sleep up to 5 people. At most farms the price for a weekend includes up to 25 people, including a pizza evening. Is your group bigger than that? If the farm has the space, book an extra canvas hideaway for £250, including pizza evening.
At Howbeck Lodge Farm you can book 5 canvas hideaways, for a group of up to 25 people.
During one of the evenings in the weekend you'll be able to cook yourself the most delicious pizzas in an authentic wood-burning oven. Gather round, drinks in hand and create toppings like you never saw at your neighbourhood pizzeria, with the help of the farmer.
Afterwards bring the evening to a close with drinks round the campfire under a star-lit sky.

How many people can go on the weekend?
The price for a weekend at most farms includes 5 canvas hideaways for a group of up to 25 people at most farms. Is your group larger than that? In that case you can add extra canvas hideaways for £250 a time if there is availability.
How many people per canvas hideaway?
A canvas hideaway is suitable for 5 people.
Can I add extra people?
Yes. Is your group more than 25 people? You can add extra, if the farm allows. Each canvas hideaway can take 5 people.
Where can I get a shower?
Most canvas hideaways in the UK have their own shower. There are three options; en-suite, private outdoor shower and farm-house showers. Each group can decide who takes a shower where if there is the choice on your particular farm.
Where can I eat?
One time during your stay there will be a pizza evening when you can bake your own in a proper wood-burning stove. Otherwise you can cook yummy meals on the stove in your tent, or on the outside cooker or barbecue.
How does pizza evening work?
On pizza evening you can make your own delicious pizzas. The farmer will fire up the wood-burning oven so you'll soon be baking pizzas better and fresher than from the high street.
Is it Covid-19 safe?
All canvas hideaways have their own private shower or one allocated in the farm-house block. Otherwise you'll be outdoors in nature with loads of space around you. During the height of the pandemic we had to close some farms due to a lockdown. If we have to do that again then our covid-19 guarantee will come into force.
