Farmhouse | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 13
Hill House Farm provides a perfect location for family groups, parties, corporate functions and group accommodation. The farmhouse welcomes guests to make themselves at home, in comfortable and beautiful surroundings.
Hill House Farm is a traditional working farm, providing pork, beef and lamb to the local community, alongside our horses, donkey, chickens and dogs. Our staff, who live onsite, will continue running the farm during your stay and will be happy to introduce children (and adults) to some of our livestock. They can suggest local walks and excursions in the beautiful surrounding countryside.
Home to Jamie's Farm, a charity which exists to transform the lives of hard to reach children in challenging urban schools, we provide a unique combination of “farming, family and therapy” that aims to re-engage children with education and fulfil their potential. By renting Hill House Farm on weekendss when children are not staying with us, all income will feed directly into the charity, enabling us to work with more vulnerable children. Please see our website (jamiesfarm.org.uk) for more information.
