Farmstays in England

Staying on a farm is a chance to get really up close and personal with the traditional rural way of life that still exists across much of England's beautiful rolling countryside. Learn about how a farm really works from the inside and perhaps have the opportunity to get involved yourself, or simply relax with wonderful, fresh food in the spirit-lifting countryside air. For more information, have a look at Enjoy England's dedicated Farmstay page, and check out some of the best farmstays in England below, from the romantic, windswept wilds of Northumberland to the local food of the Forest of Bowland and a Tudor Barn in Suffolk.
