Farm Stay

Drover’s Rest  is a Hands on Kinda Place. 

Get Involved in Proper Farm Life

Anything you can imagine of a farm is something you can get involved with. So get your hands dirty, muck in and be Farmer Paul or Farmer Jenny for the Day. There are a number of ways you can get involved

GUIDED EDUCATIONAL FARM TOUR: At 9.00 every morning we have our educational Farm Tour which is guided. We talk and walk you through the Farm and you will get to go into the animal enclosures with us (not allowed on the farm trail). This normally costs £15.00 pp. And is free for staying guests. And £5 pp for food guests.

Summer Additional Onsite Activities

Falconary display and handling of the birds. £5 pp to watch the display. And £5 extra pp if you would like to handle the birds. On at 10.30am on 3rd Aug, 7th Aug, 10th Aug, 19th Aug, 22nd Aug and 31st of August

We have several opportunities for volunteers throughout the year. We take a max of 4 at any one time. You can help with various projects on the farm from conservation and wildlife projects, to  building projects, woodland projects, the animals, growing food or flowers, guest activities and workshops. In this capacity you will have free food & accommodation in the form of a private fully insulated shepherds hut in exchange for help on the farm.

Workshops & Courses

We partner with the most amazing and talented people around us to bring to you the most amazing experiences. Centred around rural crafts, outdoor cooking and farming/small holders skills.
