Book a Private Shopping Experience

We're trying to make things a little easier for you to shop and support local businesses.

So if you have been shielding or simply are not quite feeling ready to brave the bigger shops,

why not book into one of our 1 hour private shopping slots.

Available slots 9am until 10am or 4pm to 5pm everyday.

Advance booking required.

Slots are free. No obligation to buy.

Call 01509 268080 to book.

If you need to change or cancel your appointment we completely understand. 

Please do call us so we may offer the slot to someone else. 

Please note at busy times we may not be able to answer you call

so please do leave a message and we will call you back. 


We will be transforming our straw barn into a cosy chill out area, serving hot drinks and sweet treats during opening hours. So if the shop is at capacity, you can relax for a few moments and take in the festive cheer.

Available for everyone to enjoy including those visiting the farm for a woodland walk.

Woodland Walks

Why not pop over to the farm for a socially distanced woodland walk. 

With 30 acres and part of the National Forest, there's ample routes you can take. 

The gates will be open during shop opening times.

Free Farm Map available from the Christmas Shop.

Why not pop over to our cosy chillout straw barn after your walk for something warm and tasty. 

Artisan Winter Fair

Updated 1st November 2020

Following the latest Government announcement for a National Lockdown, our Artisan Winter Fair

scheduled for 28th & 29th November has now been, postponed cancelled.  

It's fair to say that along with the nervousness of the weather which put paid to the Artisan Autumn Fair;

we do not want to be in a position where we have to cancel a third event this year.  

Hard work aside; this would just be soul destroying for everyone.

We've always had the ethos that during Covid-19 we would pivot our business and

support local business as best we could. So we need to be realistic and mindful

of the impact any decisions we make have on everyone. And in the absence of not having

any additional indoor space; we can contingency plan for Covid-19

but its difficult to contingency plan for the weather.

As the guidelines currently dictate for social distancing; if we were to use our barn only for an event,

this would mean just 9 stallholders and 37 visitors at any one time.

For perspective - we have previously hosted 24 stallholders in the barn at any one time plus 100 visitors.

For now, thank you for your continued support.

Please do check out our online shop for Click & Collect and Local Delivery

or visit us during December if you feel you are ready to.
