I nipped over to Kestrel Lodge last night and snapped a few photos as the sun was going down, the sound of birdsong, sheep baaaaing and the odd tractor in the distance was very relaxing, I nearly let myself into the tent and stayed the night!

The next couple of weeks are a perfect time to come glamping, it's still relatively quiet on the farm at the moment before the school holidays begin and a good time to stay if you're a couple or family with young children.
We have discounted our prices as it's last minute. Four night stays in a safari lodge are now £420 for four night stays up until July 8th.
We love our pigs, there are three young ones on the farm at the moment. They're a rare Devon black breed and really gorgeous. We have farm tours running through the summer, all guests who stay here have an opportunity to come and feed the animals with us (usually on Saturday and Tuesday mornings). We start with the chickens and geese, then go and meet the lambs - three are tame and can be cudled. Then we go over to the pigs - if children are feeling brave they can come into the pig paddock with us and give them a scratch or a chase! Then we finish with a tractor ride in the field with the alpacas. Find Out More
