Feather Down continue to push on in their roll-out of new accommodation types with the popular Hollings Hill Farm now offering the Feather Down log cabins but adding an outdoor hot tub to each cabin. Introducing log cabins last year at two farms - ensuring Feather Down stays open year-round - the company has this year added two further locations. There are now 7 log cabins on sale, a number that is projected to reach 15 to 20 cabins by 2017.
Hollings Hill Farm near Cradley in Herefordshire is just 35 miles south-west of the Birmingham boundary, but with panoramic views far out over the countryside around the farm from this high point, it is where guests can be least 'confined'. These views are the backdrop to a working farm at which guests are invited to help feed the lambs, horses and Holstein-Friesian cows, meet the calves that have just been born and view cow milking.
Austin and Faye are acclaimed for the warm hospitality that has greeted guests for a decade now as a Feather Down farm. They have an extra tent that can be used as a party tent/communal gathering area and a much-liked new honesty shop too, featuring a high-quality stock.Hollings Hill's other accommodations, the wooden-floored Canvas Lodge tents, all come with private showers, most with their own decking and hot tubs too. Tent and hot tub is a combination warmly familiar at Feather Down, but the log cabin with hot tub at up-to-the-minute Hollings Hill is their own innovation.
The Log Cabin, an icon of movie myth, is designed to tap into a vein of continuity and experience like Feather Down's 19th-century-evoking farmhouse interior design and the farms themselves. In their connection with the land, the cabins come with a sense of adventure built in. The Feather Down interiors across the ground floor and mezzanine combine with the image of the log cabin to become a stylish riff on the warmth of hearth and home.
The hot tub and the deck chairs on the porch of the log cabin offer a choice of vantage points for guests to oversee proceedings while finding calm in nature.
The 4-night midweek and 3-night weekend stays at Hollings Hill log cabins start from £435.
A luxury family vacation in tune with the times, returning to the simple values of life…
