Proper wholesale bedding appreciated on farm stay
After plenty of holidays spent staying in hotels, B&Bs or under canvas, one writer decided to have a change of pace by checking into a farm.
However, Nicola Iseard, in an article for the Guardian, explains that despite sharing the surrounding area with a host of creatures, she was pleasantly surprised that the accommodation boasted many modern luxuries, not least quality wholesale bedding.
This is because, unlike on a stay at many farms, guests at Osbaston House Farm in Leicestershire do not have to pitch their own tent, but can bed down under a canvas and wood shelter.
Inside the shelter, there is a wood burning stove, a fridge, running water and large dining table.
In addition, Ms Iseard found: "Separate bedrooms sleeping up to six in proper beds, bunks and a traditional Dutch bedstee - secret bed hidden inside a cupboard - all complete with thick duvets and pillows."
With access to all these amenities, it could be said that the writer was able to get even more enjoyment out of her stay on the farm.
The Guardian's Patrick Barkham also recently enjoyed a stay on a farm, at a National Trust-owned building in the Dyffryn Mymbyr valley.
