Stay at Featherdown’s Lipley Farm in Cheswardine, Shropshire. Peace meets quiet here in this part of Shropshire. The five tents back on to woodland and boast uninterrupted views of wonderful countryside. There are 130 Friesian cows to be milked, and Stephen is delighted to have a helping hand in the parlour. Guests can’t believe Steve’s knowledge of the herd – he knows every cow by its number. Younger guests love to test him on the Farm Tour! They also love seeing calves being born.
The five Feather Down tents are backed into Rushymoss Wood, home to many cuckoos and woodpeckers. Due the the fauna on and around the farm, dogs and other pets can’t be accommodated at Lipley. The wood makes the tents feel sheltered, while the view from each is uninterrupted. Groups have often commented on how well the layout works for them.
The Farm Larder is stocked with fresh food for you to make up meals at any time of day. Groups also love the communal fire pit that brings everyone together in the middle of the field. Wood for this can be scavenged out of “The Moss” as the locals call the wood. Private chicken coops have also been added here for your own private egg supply during your stay. The new 40-metre zip wire is now up and running too for the kids to whoop along!
In the local village of Cheswardine you can sample the ales from Market Drayton’s Joules Brewery and good pub grub at the cosy Fox and Hounds. The Red Lion is home to the Lion’s Tail Brewery: sample a pint of their Lion Bru! The village is a pleasant 40-minute walk across the fields, or just three miles by road. Further afield, Alton Towers is just a 30-mile drive.
