Feather Down glamping pioneers carry success into 2016: re-bookers, occupancy & satisfaction


Feather Down, the best loved family GLAMPING holiday in the UK and abroad announces the launch of the 2016 season. Well into its second decade offering luxury camping on working farms, rentals of 45m2+, wooden-floored tents are now found at 33 locations in the UK alone. Families in particular have embraced the experience of getting back to nature in wonderful countryside, seeing first-hand how their food is grown and reared and even rolling up their sleeves to help out! A 65% occupancy rate in 2015 confirms the public's enduring enthusiasm.


Glamping luxury camping


•Original: The "Feather Down feeling" means luxury and style but also "roots", the interiors recalling the 19th century, featuring a wood-burning stove and the Feather Down “cupboard bed”. There is no electricity, so no screens distracting, which leaves every minute for relaxing, interacting, and connecting with nature. Creature comforts are never compromised though, with acclaimed beds and flushing toilets. En-suitesoutdoor hot tubs and log cabins are also available.



•Personal: The length and breadth of Feather Down farms is connected by character: no industrial farming, respect for biodiversity, and a relationship with the land built over time. Feather Down farmers love their job and share, with a passion, their knowledge of farming and the countryside with holidaymakers. Visitors, often city dwellers, are amazed that while they relax, the values of sustainable life are passed to their kids! More than 35% of customers come again.



•Inspirational: Children are close to animals and nature like nowhere else, safely, waking up in the middle of it all over again each morning. There is always something going on whether it is the animals being fed with children's help, the gathering of fresh ingredients, collecting eggs from the coop, and much more. Without the distractions of technology, time stretches out until kids retire with many smiles to the cupboard bed beneath which, in former times, the animals would warm those above! The average satisfaction rating of Feather Down customers is 9.5 / 10.


A luxury family vacation in tune with the times, returning to the simple values of life…
