we have just returned from our 4 night stay at east shilvinghampton farm with our 3 year old daughter and bella the dog. all i can say is the whole experience exceeded our expectations! i dont like th idea of camping at all, but the tent was more like home. the double bed was so comfy better than my own at home. my daughter loved the cupboard bed. i loved the idea of a wood burning stove to keep the tent warm if it turned a little chilly, and boy did it keep the rest of the tent toastie warm. the views from the field were stunning, especially at night watching the sun go down. bella our dog loved running around the spacious field i the evenings as we were the only family there at the time.
martin and joby were very warm, welcoming people who were always on hand to help, they came to check if everything was ok most days and have a general chat with us. me and my daughter particurlarly loved bottle feeding the lambs and goat kids, an experience i will never forget. on our last day martin took me, my partner and daughter for a very informative farm tour and got to sit in the big tractor! all in all i would definately go again and would recommend to family and friends
