I took my children (9, 11 & 15) on a midweek holiday to Lipley Farm and we loved it. I was a bit worried that my typical teenager might not really enjoy himself since most of the children were quite young but he had a great time taking charge of the nightly bonfire in the middle of the camp. My 9 yo also had fun making friends, visiting the farm animals & playing on the swings. While my arty 11 yo spent a lot of time sketching and tending to the chickens in our coop. The farm tour was fun & informative and our hosts were friendly & helpful. The tent itself was fantastic. I never did get a turn in the cupboard bed sadly, because my daughters refused to budge. Once we got the hang of the wood burning stove, we really enjoyed getting away from modern life. It's so much more relaxing living by candlelight and playing board & card games instead of watching television or playing on the computer. We'll definitely return to Lipley Farm and also try other Featherdown Farms. I may never get my own tent out for a camping trip again.
