Sooooo excited - Feather Down Farm

Today, we booked our annual family holiday. We're going on a Feather Down Farms holiday to Howbeck Lodge Farm in Cumbria and I'm so excited!
We've never been on this kind of holiday before; we've always opted for a week on the coast, playing on the beach, funfair and going in the arcades. It's the kind of holiday I'm used to as it's what we did as family when I was little but this year we decided a change of pace was needed.

We wanted a holiday that didn't include bright flashing lights, noise and having to spend, spend, spend because everything is aimed at getting the children to ask for this, that and the other.
We wanted to spend time as a family, playing board games, reading, exploring the countryside and relaxing.

We're going in October for the half term week so we're going to be taking extra warm clothes and bedding!
I love streams/rivers/waterfalls etc so when I saw this photo, I was hooked! We did consider going to the one in Northern Ireland as Ant raised his children there with his first wife and we wanted to go and see where he used to live but the ferry prices were too expensive.
We will go to Northern Ireland one day, maybe on a romantic holiday, just the two of us :)

Anyway, I now have lots of plans and lists to make (I LOVE list making) so Excel, here I come!


  1. Ooh I'm jealous. I've been looking at the posh farm/camping breaks. The Featherdown farm lot look amazing. I'm sure you'll have a great time.

    (Bizarrely, we quite often stay on farms for B&B - busman's holiday for my OH!)

    1. I'm just hoping it's not going to be freezing! I think that's the main thing that I'm going to worry about.
      We stayed in a caravan in October before and it was freezing at night. We had to buy a heater and sleep with the gas fire on. There's no electric in the tents so buying a heater isn't an option lol

      Thanks for stopping by :) xx

  2. Thank you for thinking of Feather Down. You have chosen some of the most hospitable farmers going in Christine and John

    1. All the reviews mention how lovely they are. We're very much looking forward to meeting them :)

  3. We went to a Feather Down Farm last year and it was amazing. Such balm for the soul.

    1. That's great to hear. Thanks for stopping by :)


Awwww thanks :D
