Why we've chosen Moor Farm:

Just 5 miles from ancient Gloucester and a short walk from the Severn estuary you’ll find a true patch of heaven on Moor Farm. You wouldn't think that this farm is so accessible because of how secluded and peaceful it feels there. At the end of a mile-long private drive lined with beautiful trees, you’ll truly leave the hustle and bustle of everyday life behind, catching a first glimpse of the century-old traditional orchard and herd of rare Gloucester cattle feeding on the fertile grass of the Severn floodplain. Well-behaved dogs are can come too, kept on a lead and booked in advance.

In the central courtyard, which brings you back to a long-gone era where horse and carriage were commonplace, you’ll soon get to know the three generations farming Moor Farm. Their great passion is not only for farming but equally for food, history and the preservation of nature. The Watts family are very much involved members of the rare breed association, plus the proud owners of a successful small-scale catering business that prides itself on using as many products from the farm or the local area as possible. Chef Matt can and will make for you more than is offered amongst the food extras...

As for the children, they’ll have a blast building dens or playing hide and seek in the copse where the tents are located. The older ones might go down to the canal (5-minute walk) for some fishing and boating, or take to the new cycle trail around the farm. Otherwise, there is Richard to help round up the cutest looking flock of Hampshire Down sheep - a rare though adorably cuddly looking breed - followed by some deer spotting as dusk sets in.

Greentraveller's Insight: The Featherdown Farm Tent
The tents are large enough to fit six people – a maximum of five adults and one child up to 12 years old. Cooking & heating is provided by a cosy wood-burning stove, plus you'll get one crate of firewood provided per day. There is an ample living area (45 square metres), which includes a flushing toilet and spacious, comfortable beds. Each tent includes bed and kitchen linen, the tent’s kitchen has cold running water and there are hot showers on site.
