As the previous reviewer this was also our first time at a Featherdown farm. We visited during the Easter holiday arriving on a bright dry day but the remainder of the stay was sadly like we have become accustomed to throughout March/April making the sleep experience challenging.. Despite this we thoroughly enjoyed our surroundings. This experience is all about back to basics so we booked the 'with frills' package (wood burning hot tub and shower) would highly recommend this option as the extras including towels and beds already made is worth paying a little extra for. Tent was large and dry if not a little drafty during the unseasonable weather so if visiting in cooler months I would suggest taking sleeping bags or hot water bottles for extra warmth and to warm the beds. Our hosts Will and Anna were attentive and available to offer advice and assistance where needed. Although there is a small shop catering for all those little essentials like candles, bread, milk etc we found these a little over priced so made the 5 minute drive into Alton which boasts many of your well known shops to top up. Would we recommend? most definately.
