Even simpeler leven bij Chris

Ontdek Bucklebury Reading Farm in Berkshire, Bucklebury. In dit glooiende landschap heten Rupert en Elizabeth je van harte welkom. Op dit herten safaripark hechten ze veel waarde aan de natuur. Je zult hier ook varkens, geiten, runderen, pony's, ezels, kippen, konijnen, parelhoenders en rendieren tegenkomen. De tenthuisjes staan aan de rand van het terrein.

Downton Abbey

Op slechts 15 minuten lopen van de boerderij, is het dorp Bucklebury opgenomen in het Domesday Book. Rij een beetje verder en je komt Highclere tegen, de fictieve setting voor de tv-serie Downton Abbey. Het gebied heeft ook een groot aantal eetgelegenheden met The Woodspeen met een Michelin-ster, en tal van bekroonde pubs en restaurants.

Dit doe je op de boerderij

Word wakker in je comfy bed en trek je overall maar aan! Ga mee op de tractor en neem een kijkje achter de schermen van het boerenleven. De kinderen vermaken zich in de speeltuin, met de skelters of spelen spelletjes in het hol gebouw. Terwijl de kinderen hun gang gaan, kun jij genieten van een wandeling door het bos. Na een actieve dag op de boerderij zitten jullie gezellig rond de houtkachel en sluiten jullie de dag af met een diner bij kaarslicht.

Elke dag is een avontuur bij ons op Bucklebury Reading! We hebben het hele jaar door jonge boerderij bewoners: lammetjes om de fles te geven, geiten, konijnen en cavia's om te knuffelen en biggetjes om naar te kijken. We kunnen niet wachten jullie rond te leiden!

Wij gaan respectvol om met onze boerderij en leren jullie hier graag meer over!

We loved our glamping experience, waking in the morning to see the deer strolling past in the opposite field was very special. The site had more than enough to keep us and our young glampers (aged 2-6 years) busy for all 4 nights, it was a perfect blend of relaxing and active. Over the August bank holiday the farm had extra activities, like face painters, musicians, story-tellers, activity trails as well as their usual pat-a-pet, tractor deer safari, meeting the animals. As overnight guests you also get a "VIP" Farm Tour which was a great way to have one-one time with the rabbits, guinea pigs, tortoises and meet the other animals. Older families may wish to leave and explore further afield if staying more than 3 nights. But we found the go karts, indoor slides, bouncing pillows, nature trail, play park, obstacle course, flying fox and football pitch enough for us and the kids. At no point did they ask for a phone or an iPad! The tents were great, there was a fire starting welcome pack, but nothing else in terms of washing-up liquid, sponge, tea, coffee etc. Ice blocks were available to pick up from a secure shed in the next field - we brought our Hesky too and stored this in the massive cooling chest in the tent, which helped to keep milk, cheese and meats extra cool. This shed is where you can charge your phone/battery packs. At the tent we toasted marshmallows, made pizza and cooked it (in a frying pan) on the wood burning stove, BBQ'd outside, even the oven was good enough to cook the dishes and curries available in the farm shop. The farm shop was limited in terms of basics, like bread, fruit, vegetables, so if you plan to cook it is worth bringing this to save leaving once you've arrived. It sold mostly meat and oven meals, together with some cheese and limited range of pasta and sauce, jars etc. We did have a supply of torches, which I found essential as the candles alone wasn't adequate enough - it is extremely dark :).

It was a great experience to stay at the farm. The tents are great, set up with everything that you would need. The staff was accommodating and friendly. The jubilee weekend was an excellent weekend to be there, as there was a lot of entertainment going on for kids. Lots of opportunities to see different types of animals. If you like a quick cup of tea I would advise taking a gas burner with you. The log burner needs a lot of work to get it going. Overall, a great experience, and I would highly recommend staying at the farm.

We thought the bucklebury faculties together with the glamping was fabulous. Staff were very attentive. Although Mia was sleeping in the cupboard bed and woke up with bedbugs bites. Very prompt service to switch the bedding. Might need to give the tents a thorough clean etc our pilot for the shower kept turning off but again prompt service to fix it

Such a shame. Buckle berry farm and it’s camping set up were fine but they are not featherdown. No honesty box for the kids to shop, not much to buy camping wise in the shop, bread was £4.50 and only sourdough available. Wood was £8.50. There were no chickens to collect eggs from. Constantly surrounded by public with not even a field suitable and private to play kite, frisby etc. we are at the nostalgia end our featherdown farm breaks. Kids are 12 and 13 and we just like to recreate the memories of when they were young. We didn’t take cash as usually we can pay at the end. They could not get anything for themselves. We left Sunday afternoon.

The holiday was very successful, the conditions in the tent were very good and the staff tried their best to help in cases where we needed help. The whole site is very diverse, well maintained and offers many activities for children of all ages. I highly recommend anyone who wants a heart-felt nature with his family to think about a vacation at such a site

As it was our first time glamping and i was looking after 3 girls and 2 women. at times challenging when cooking for everyone and keeping the fire lit as they enjoy there comfort too much. personally i think you guys have a great set up and very acomodating to all. The kids had a ball and loved the animals.

We had a magical stay at Feather Down Bucklebury with our 3 and 6 year olds. The site was in a secluded part of a farm park, which meant there was loads of brilliant play areas during the day to keep the kids busy but it felt very private when we went back to the lodges too. It was also magical being there after closing time when the visitors had left and we had the run of the outdoor play areas just for the Featherdown guests. The tractor ride to see and feed the deer was an amazing experience for adults and kids alike, and the kids were wowed by the egg collecting too. The staff were all very friendly and we are already planning our return for next year.

We had an amazing weekend stay at Bucklebury. The tent was well equipped, the wood burning stove was brilliant and the staff at the farm could not have been more helpful and friendly. The kids had a wonderful time in the playground and feeding all the animals. A truly magical weekend for all of us. Thank you guys.

Fantastic stay, the things for young children to do are amazing. So peaceful and feeding the deer was a highlight. Amazing hosts always responded quickly and nothing too much travel. Can’t wait to go back next year

We had a fantastic time. It would have been helpful to have known that all duvets are single, and that the double bed is a king, in order to have brought the correct size bedding. Also, would have been good to know that coffee beans and tea are provided. Minor points though, overall, we thought the set up was excellent!

Absolutely lovely weekend! The location was beautiful, tents clean and the staff were so friendly and helpful - especially Chris. Really appreciated the option for a late check-out. An added bonus was all the great facilities and play areas around the farm. The tractor ride to see the deer was wonderful!

This stay was disappointing. There was no welcome at the location and it felt as though we were 'left to it'. There was no orientation given like we have had at other sites. The tents were not cleaned properly - so are clearly not adhering to current regulations. We found earrings belonging to a previous occupant in one tent and there was loads of dust under all the beds. I had to ask 3 times to get a bed sheet. The candles were half burnt (in the current circumstances we would expect these to be new). There were no signs coming into the site to indicate that we were at a Featherdown location. There was one small fridge for the use of 5 tents which was too small. The honesty shop was lacking in essentials. It felt as though we had to keep spending extra money in the farm shop rather than being able to access items via the honesty shop. The tents were located too far from the fridge and phone charging areas. The site could really benefit from having an area for glampers near the tents with these items in. There were no sink plugs which made washing up difficult - again not ideal with a pandemic. The site could do with regularly topping up hand sanitiser as it was empty around some play areas. A nice touch would be to provide some in the tents. When we left we were not asked if we had enjoyed our stay. It just felt as though we were another transaction. On the positive side the showers were excellent - far better than the other Featherdown locations we have stayed at. The children in our group loved the animals and play areas.
