Feather Down Farms announce upgrades to accommodation at all UK locations and further roll-out of new accommodation types


The UK and European leader of glamping and holidays on working farms continues with its upgrading of products & services this year. Feather Down is raising the level of both its standard and more expensive accommodation options as well as beginning to roll out its new additions to the range of accommodation.


Stefan Thurau, Feather Down CEO said "This year's product upgrades and product diversification is part of a 3-year plan. We started with the implementation last year and it will be completed in 2017. The strategy includes the upgrade of our over 400 frill and standard tents as well as the continued launch of new products such as log cabins and 10 person tents. With this ambitious plan, we want to raise the standards of glamping and benefit as best we can and as quickly as possible our farmer partners and our guests”.


Glamping Canvas Lodge by Feather Down with canopy extension


The Canvas Lodge. This standard tent is being upgraded gaining the canopy that was added to the more expensive Frills tents last year. The 45m2 tent will extend further, above and in front of the entrance. At more than one hundred extra tents across the UK, there will be shade for those who always prefer it on a hot day, cover while outside, and the look and size of a grand tent.


Farm holidays on the terrace


The Canvas Frills Lodge, the ensuite, shall more than match the boost of the standard tent, gaining an outside decking. This will extend the living area by a third. Guests staying at more than 70 tents across the UK will have their own terrace allowing them to take in the surroundings in luxury on a farm holiday that respects the need for creature comforts to be provided for.


Glamping luxury camping log cabin


The Log Cabin was introduced last year at two UK farms and one in Germany, inaugurating the company's first winter season. The cabin is designed to kindle feelings of open spaces and adventure in grown-ups and kids alike with a classic look that movies have made iconic, while being centred on the warmth of hearth and home. A further UK farm, Hollings Hill in the Malverns, Herefordshire, will add to the log cabin offer this year with the same classic Feather Down 19th century-evoking interiors as the lodges but spread out over ground floor and mezzanine.


Group holidays on the farm at the 10-person lodge


The Canvas Lodge for 10. This tent type adds an extra double bed and bunkbed to the standard combination of double, bunkbed and “cupboard bed” for kids. The tent was introduced at one UK farm last year as well as two in the Netherlands. From this year, a further UK farm, Billingsmoor in Devon, will offer the opportunity for more of a guests' family and friends to enjoy being together, glamping in nature at a farm location. Beds are near the top of the list of positive features according to former guests of Feather Down farms, so whatever the size of group, or extent of farm activities and excursions undertaken, guests will retire in comfort.


A Feather Down Farm Days stay starts from just £245 for 4 nights.
