Has anyone done 'glamping' / Featherdown Farm type things?

(2 Posts)

Just looking at the website for Featherdown farms and wondered whether anyone had any experience or recommendations for this (or this sort of thing)?

I suppose I'm interested to know how each day panned out - how much was spent doing camping type 'chores' vs what did you do with the rest of your day? Would you recommend it?

We have 2 ds's who will be 5 and 2 next summer and we've never camped so don't have any equipment type stuff. I'm not against camping though as an idea and both me and DH have camped when younger (or when we were kids!) - we just don't have our own kit now.

So that's another question actually - what kit would we need?

Any / all advice gratefully received...... smile

We have stayed at a Featherdown Farm - the one in Herefordshire.

The "tents" - if you can call them that - are really very nice. We have no camping experience at all but it wasn't necessary as you are definitely not roughing it and don't need any special equipment.

We enjoyed it very much and there were really no more "chores" than a normal self-catering holiday. The only thing that took a bit of adjusting to was that it takes much longer to boil a kettle on a wood burning stove than it would on a gas ring!
