Part of the hugely successful Feather Down Farms concept, Readyfields Farm is camping for those who like their creature comforts – rustic decor and outdoor living but with comfy bedding and all mod cons thrown in including a hob, wood burner and coffee grinder. Feather Down takes pride in the details, making sure you always get a jaw-dropping view, the eggs are always ready to be collected from the chicken coop; and fresh bacon and milk is only a larder trip away. This leaves you more time to concentrate on enjoying yourself and making the most of your surroundings. You don't need a tent, as they come pre-erected, fully furnished and look somewhat close to a rural pop up palace. Feather Down use redundant land from farmers, build the tents, and then let the (more authentic) farmers look after you.
Readyfields sits in the middle of Nottinghamshire's prettiest spot in the picturesque village of Caunton. The farm is set in some of the most beautiful walking country in England, with footpaths starting right on your doorstep. Although Sherwood Forest and its associations with Robin Hood is nearby, there's still plenty to do at the farm, including getting acquainted with all the resident animals. You could explore further afield to White Post Farm Park where you'll see anything from llamas to wallabies. July is a great time to visit, as the owners host their annual puppy and hound show and indulge their guests in a full hog roast with afternoon tea for afters.
