Really chilled experience, and a great night’s sleep in our bell tent; it rained heavily but did not affect us. Friendly staff on hand, great facilities which were clean and well maintained. Anyone who considers booking a stay at Home Farm should. I feel more relaxed after a night there than after several nights in a hotel.”
