Farm Camp Residential

A Unique Residential Experience In Our Historic Farm Setting

Perfect as a first residential trip, we offer one night camping experiences for primary school children. Our experienced education team create opportunities for children to enhance curriculum learning, explore new challenges and celebrate achievements.

We spend our time outdoors immersed in the natural world, discovering the connection between farming and food and enjoying the freedom of the countryside.
