Self Catering Farm Holidays in the UK

Tasting a slice of the countryside can be a welcome break from urban life and what better way to sample it, than a farm holiday where you get to stay in a traditional cottage or farmhouse and experience country living first hand. For children, a farm holiday is an educational and fun experience where they can learn about a different way of living. Many owners of farm cottages are more than happy to show guests around the farm and some will even allow the kids to take a ride on a tractor, help feed the animals or collect fresh eggs for breakfast. If you are lucky, you may even be able to purchase home reared produce for that extra special supper with the freshest of local ingredients! Read more

Farm Holidays

Set amongst beautiful countryside, a farm holiday provides the opportunity to enjoy all that country life has to offer. Beautiful scenery, traditional pubs, great walks and the chance to immerse yourself in the workings and culture of the local environment. Whatever the time of year, there is always plenty to see when you stay on a farm with the ever changing landscape all around. In the spring, the farmers are busy lambing and the autumn brings with it the warmth and golden colours of harvest.

Whether you opt to stay on an arable farm or a livestock farm, there are generally plenty of animals to be seen in and around the surrounding countryside. Cows, chickens and pigs are all common farmyard sights but many farms also keep rare breeds for something a little different.

Farm holidays are very popular and renting self catering accommodation in a farm setting is an affordable way to enjoy a relaxing break with plenty of things to see and do on the doorstep. For adults and children alike, a farm holiday provides a fun and interesting way to spend a few days watching, doing and learning about the countryside.

Tips: Due to the rural nature of many farm holidays, you may need to get stocked up on some essentials before you arrive. Remember to bring wellington boots; even if you are visiting in summer it can still get muddy! If dogs are accepted at the cottage, they may have to be kept under close control in and around the farm due to livestock.
