Perfect three nights!

My wife and I had a perfect three nights in Barleyleas, we did very little apart from cooking our food in the woodburner, warming our toes round the fire, sipping bubbly in the hot tub whilst watching the stars. Had a couple of small walks to a couple of small pubs and an interesting tour of the farm. Very peaceful. Think you’ve smashed it Audrey. Thanks to you both.

What an absolutely fantastic stay

What an absolutely fantastic stay we had at the Village Farm Getaway! The canvas cottage was so beautifully made and so cosy that we didn’t want to leave it to go outside, even on a beautiful day. Everything was so well designed and thought through; no detail was missed, even down to finding a pot of milk in the fridge for tea and delicious flapjacks waiting for us upon our arrival. Tim and Audrey were wonderful hosts who made us feel so welcome and even gave us a tour of their family-run farm which was so interesting. We enjoyed our stay so much that we cannot wait to come back and after showing our friends and family the photos that we took, they want to visit for themselves. We couldn’t recommend this amazing Glamping experience enough!

We had a lovely stay

We had a lovely stay in Barleyleas. Everything had been thought of, from the flapjack, marshmallows and the electric blanket! I haven’t stopped recommending it since we got home and will be returning for another stay. Thank you Audrey, Tim and Paul!

Children did not want to leave!

We really enjoyed our stay last month and were very happy with the high specs of the interior of the glamping lodge. It was all very luxurious. Your attention to detail was noticed and much appreciated. The children had a wonderful time and did not want to leave. We hope to visit again in the not too distant future. Thank you for the warm friendly welcome,

We have just spent a lovely and relaxing weekend glamping at the Village Farm. Farmer Tim and Audrey are great hosts, making us feel welcome and including some nice touches- from our names on the welcome board in the tent, a fridge of essentials and lovely homemade flapjack, to a fun ride on the tractor trailer. We hired both tents for a family get together. They are beautifully situated in a private field so that this is possible and works well, whilst creating a feeling of space and yet security for the children. The tents are of a great standard- comfortable beds, a nice kitchen area and a good shower shed out the back. The farm is a great place for children- we got to look after chickens watch the milking and feed the new calves. The barn with a rope swing and hay bales to make dens was also very popular with the little ones! A lovely weekend of quality family time in a lovely environment. We would certainly recommend the experience the the farm offers.

We had a great stay

We had a great stay at Village Farm Getaway. The tents are amazing, feeling homely and warm, yet still giving the feel of camping. We loved sitting around the log fire burner at night and cooking pain au chocolate for breakfast in the morning. We went out to Rutland water, only 30 minutes drive away, and went paddle boarding and kayaking. Brilliant hosts with a tour around the farm. All round fantastic weekend and well worth a visit!

We have just had a wonderful three night break in these fabulous tents for a family trip. My sister and her family were in one tent, and myself and my family were in the other, it was perfect. The two tents are situated in a secluded field with gorgeous views of the countryside, the field is fenced off so the children could just play to their hearts content. Audrey has thought of everything in the tents: comfy beds, lovely bathroom, warm and spacious, with even homemade flapjacks on arrival. Audrey and Tim offer a warm welcome, Tim gave us a really interesting and an insightful tour of the farm, including tractor ride. The children got to collect eggs and feed the calves and we all got to see the milking. The children’s favourite part though was the fun barn, equipped with bales to climb on and make dens in and a rope swing … they were in heaven. Our best bit was getting the kids to bed and relaxing in the hot tub. We visited initially as it was half way between where our two families live, but what we discovered was a great and unique experience. I can’t recommend Village Farm Getaway enough.

Had a fantastic time at

Had a fantastic time at village farm – amazing hospitality from Audrey and Tim who really went out of their way to ensure we had a good stay. Thankyou so much!

We’ve just returned

We’ve just returned from a fabulous 3 days at the Village Farm Getaway with my husband and two kids (7 and 11). This was ‘getaway in it’s truest sense. The tents are situated in beautiful countryside where the kids spent hours exploring, chasing rabbits and playing hiding and seek. The tents are the perfect blend of luxury and cosy homeliness; with all the benefits of fresh air and toasted marshmallows but all the comfort of a gorgeous bathroom from home and a woodburning stove at night. The kitchen is well equipped so that as well as cooking on the open fire we were able to make use of a hob and oven – this definitely feels like camping without all the hard work.

However the highlight of the getaway is its location on this friendly family farm. The welcome is warm and everyone so friendly that you quickly feel at home whether it is gathering morning free range eggs or visiting and feeding the new calves.

We live locally within Leicestershire but this break felt every bit a getaway and we can’t wait to go back.

Friendly, helpful hosts made

Friendly, helpful hosts made a perfect start to a wonderful stay at Village Farm Getaway!
Amazingly comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, fantastic shower, and log burner made our stay at Village Farm Getaway an experience we would like to repeat.Everything was tastefully presented and spotlessly clean with chairs on the veranda so we could appreciate the beautiful views.
The peace and quiet makes it a lovely location well away from the usual hustle and bustle of life. The cows, Jaffa the farm dog, tractors and chickens immediately put you in the mood for a good time away on a working farm.
Many thanks for a very special stay…and we look forward to returning very soon.

Glamping at its best!

Glamping at its best! Had a wonderful weekend here, the ‘tents’ have such a beautiful view over the countryside and couldn’t have wished for nicer accommodation. Tim and Audrey were fantastic hosts who really made us feel very welcome even showing us around the farm and introducing us to their cows.

Just returned from

Just returned from a fabulous few days away with the girls…. 5* all round for brilliant hosts Tim and Audrey! Thank you for welcoming us with open arms.
