Escape to a simpler life with Wendy and Richard

If you’re looking for traditional rustic comfort, you’ll find peace and sanctuary at the end of the no-through road that leads to Moor Farm in Gloucestershire – described by the Independent as the ideal digital de-tox in 2021. You’ll meet Richard and Wendy and the three generations of the Watts family and hear about their passion for regenerative agriculture and rare animal breeds, one of many reasons why their farm tour is an absolute must. Your tents are situated by the copse, where you will catch a glimpse of their cattle feeding on the Severn floodplain nearby. Moor Farm is an ideal spot for a family holiday in Gloucestershire.

Close by the Cotswolds and some of England’s loveliest towns

If you’re longing to explore outside the farm, the ancient city of Gloucester is just five miles away, famous for its iconic cathedral and history that dates back to Roman times., whilst nearby Stroud was voted England’s Best Place to Live in 2021 in the Sunday Times. If the Cotswolds are your thing, the chances are that your drive home will take you past Jeremy Clarkson’s ‘Diddly Squat’ farm, as well as Bourton-on-the-Water, regularly voted one of England’s prettiest villages.

What to do at Moor Farm

During your stay, you can enjoy the indoor swimming pool, which you can book out as a group when you arrive. If you want to stay in the pure outdoors then you can build dens or play hide and seek in the copse. As the dusk sets in you can spot wild deer whilst dinner is being prepared on the wood-burning stove with delicious ingredients from the farm’s honesty shop. Pizza night at Moor Farm is a treat with food that should be in a good food guide and home-made cider that you’ll not find in your local supermarket.

Highlight

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 during your stay. But you don’t wait till then. The farmer will be delighted to tell you more about farm life at any time.

Winkeltje

Highlight

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 are the Watts family. We live here together and our sons Mathew and Richard help out on the farm. Set at the end of its mile-long private drive lined with beautiful trees, we are excited to share all of this with you.

Moor farm is where it is at made extra special by farmer Richard and wife Wendy. Perfect escape if you want a safe space for the kids to play in the open fields. Really enjoyed the farm tour with our little one getting to ride the tractor. Afterwards the family took time to let us try their own brewed cider which was really lovely of them - the cider was great too! Everything you need is available from their honesty shop and they even provide a service of fresh bread and crossiants each morning delivered to your tent! You have slimbridge wetlands close by with over 100 species of bird onsite including flamingos! Loads of pubs and a beauitful canal with cafe all close by. Ill definately be going back to Moor Farm!

Amazing - Richard and Wendy were perfect hosts, very accommodating. The farm tour and pizza making made the experience! The only downside was the amount of spiders but that can’t be helped…I’m just not a fan of them!

Another fantastic Featherdown holiday. We all enjoyed the farm tour, the pizza evening and getting to know Richard the owner. We had some great trips out (walks, go karting, crazy golf & surfing) and our teenagers still love the outdoor space and the whole Glamping experience.

This is our 4th visit to a Featherdown Farm and as usual it did not disappoint. Richard and Wendy were wonderful hosts. Their Pizza Evening and Richard's farm tour are a must and was a highlight of our trip.

Moor Farm is definitely our favourite! Both Richard and Wendy make us feel so welcome and their hospitality is why we’ve come back again. Everyone loved their stay and the chance to meet all the animals up close and personal, not forgetting the stunning scenery from our tents. Highly recommend the farm!

Brilliant rustic experience which the kids loved. I needed to sleep fully clothed with thermal socks, hot water bottle, extra blankets and a hat due to the head of the bed being right next to the canvas. Didn’t have high hopes for the communal shower but it was fairly horrific- lukewarm with low pressure. Beware if your kids are scared of spiders, my son wouldn’t sleep in the cupboard bed at all ? Everything else was as expected though and considering it was October and it rained 80% of the time, we all really enjoyed our first featherdown experience. The farm tour was more interesting than I expected and the pizza night was great. Really friendly and helpful farmer.

We had a fabulous break at Moor Farm. Richard was a great host. The weather was not kind but we didn't care. The fire was lit, we toasted marshmallows, played games as a family and forgot all about Covid. Away from all constraints of modern living we were able to truly relax and enjoy time together as a family. We will definitely be back.....

Despite the rain and mud we had a fantastic time. Our host Richard couldn't have been more hospitable. We really enjoyed the pizza night and farm tour. The tents were cosy and well equipped although better tin openers wouldn't go amiss and a couple of rickety chairs fixing. The kids loved the rope swing and the pool. A bit tired but lovely warm water. Definitely a great experience, one that we would repeat.
