There is always lots going on the farm that you’ll struggle to find elsewhere. This is especially true of summer activities! Instead of being crammed into a crowded holiday park, families who choose a Feather Down holiday will have space to breathe, as our farms only offer around seven luxury tents. This means that even in high season our farmers will be able to give you their full attention, and your children can experience all the summer activities that a working farm has to offer. You will never hear the words ‘I’m bored!’ on a Feather Down holiday. Kids are free to explore the farm, and there is always something going on. Whether it is a calf being born, fruit or vegetables to be picked or the farmer needing a hand mowing the meadows, they’ll be spoiled for choice.
Some of the farms are located near beaches or have their own lakes for swimming, while others offer unique activities such as fishing, bread baking, or fruit picking. With farm shops selling an array of homemade produce, creating healthy picnic lunches or evening barbecues around the campfire could not be easier. You can help out the farmer with feeding the animals, collect eggs from the chicken coop, gather fresh summer fruits from the farm, and buy fresh meat from the honesty shop. To make the most of the long, languorous summer evenings, gather around the fire for a slow-cooked or barbecued meal.
