Organic Farm Holiday at East Penrest Holiday in luxury on our organic farm where we raise organic sheep.Stay in our beautiful comverted Barn. It's huge! Perfect for family holidays. Also wonderful for couples on their own, as it's a friendly space in spite of the main room being 50 ft (over 15 metres) long, with a seperate 20 ft snug sittingroom.Floors are reclaimed timber or slate slabs with rugs. Beds are king size in 2 bedrooms, twin in one room and 4 bunk beds for children in another. There are 3 bath or shower rooms. We are well equipped for babies and children, with cots and high chairs. Hidden away in one of our fields, we have a Shepherd's Hut that sleeps 2 in a 5ft bed. It has a woodburner. There is a separate Hut with a kitchen and bathroom with hot water. We offer reduced rates...Organic Farm Holiday at East Penrest Holiday in luxury on our organic farm where we raise organic sheep.Stay in our beautiful comverted Barn. It's huge!
