Facilities at Bucks Farm

Always LOTS to do - whatever the weather .............

COVID-19 Notice:  Please be aware that we are required to implement some operational changes to ensure social distancing and the safety of all our guests. This includes the allocation of timed sessions for each cottage to spend in the swimming pool and rotation of animal feeding.  Please do contact us for more details.    

Swimming Pool & Gym

Our indoor heated pool is available all year round for our cottage guests to use from 8:30am -12noon*, and 3:00pm-6:00pm, as well as most evenings at weekends - please just ask on arrival. The Gym is free for over-18s to access at any time between 7am-10pm.

(* Except Fridays as it is changeover morning).

Animal Feeding 

We have 13 pet sheep, Dora & Locket the Shetland ponies, 4 pygmy goats, lots of chickens,  rabbits and guinea pigs, all waiting to be fed and given a  cuddle. We  meet at around 9am most days to feed the animals and hunt for eggs - often the highlight of the week.

Indoor Gamesroom

The indoor Gamesroom is well stocked with toys and books for younger guests as well as table tennis, table football and a small pool table for the older ones. There is also a DVD player and screen. We also have another tabletennis table undercover in the animal barn.


Fields on your doorstep

Bucks Farm is surrounded by fields which are accessible to our guests and their pets directly from the farm. In total the farm covers almost 60 acres so there is plenty of space to explore and let the dogs/children run.

Space to relax

Each of our cottages has its own  terrace space making a great setting for drinks, BBQs or breakfast outside. And choose 'Swallows Rest' or 'The Hayloft'  if you'd like to enjoy relaxing evenings outside under the stars in your own Hot Tub.

Outside space to play 

Plenty of areas on the farm for safe play. We have a large grassed area with a football goal, trampoline, adventure playframe, lots of sit-on toys, bikes to borrow (please bring your own helmets), and now we have a wooden skittles set!
