Hen / Stag Weekends @ The Four Yurt Eco-Camp
The Yurts at Abbey Home Farm are an exciting and unusual venue, perfect for Hens and Stags looking for something that doesn't involve clubs or pubs. This venue is of particular appeal to people interested in where their food comes from – we grow enough to eat from the farm all weekend and you can see how our food is produced on one of our famous trailer rides (with an option of organic champagne on board and the chance to deck the trailer in pink if you feel like it too....!)
The camp has a big outdoor fireplace and kitchen area, fully equipped for camp cooking and a woodburner in one of the yurts which gets lovely and warm if its cold or rainy. The Yurt Camp holds up to 18 day or night, maximum.

Do contact us to have an initial chat if you are organising a group booking and are interested in a package or a pick and mix. Meanwhile have a look at the information below to give you some ideas of catering and activity options.
Food, Catering & Meals
Most Stag / Hen party organisers have said its great to have everything pre-arranged when organising for so many people, especially as the budget is fixed so everyone knows what is being spent. Then the only thing you need to worry about when you arrive on the Friday night is lighting the fire...and Will is usually around if there was a problem with that! However if you prefer to be more adhoc, we have a shop FULL of lovely local food, including all our own meat, dairy and veg for you to buy as needed.
Meals can be DIY on the campfire and/or in the cafe at lunchtime. Click here to download a PDF (105 kb) overview of catering options and costs.
All of our activities are dependant on availability so do ask us if you are interested in specific activities before you arrange your date. Click here to download a PDF overview of our activity options.
Arrive @ the Yurt Camp and have a BBQ with our farm meat and veggies.
After a delicious fry-up with eggs, bacon, etc from the farm- go for a tour to see where it all comes from. Farm tours can be on the trailer or a fun and informative guided walk. If you don't sleep in too late maybe collect the eggs from the real hens on the farm! Have lunch at the cafe or picnic at the yurts.
Team up for a scavenger hunt, do some green woodworking or have a tour of the veg garden and farm yard .........
Grill some of our chicken and other meats raised on the farm (or veggie equivalent) and then relax around the campfire. If you're feeling up for it, come for a night walk with us- perhaps we'll spot some badgers if you're lucky (and quiet!).
Have a leisurely morning with a simple breakfast, saving your appetite for your delicious roast in the cafe. Typically guests begin slowly clearing up and heading home but feel free to stay another night, the Yurt Camp is yours until Monday at 11 am.
Some happy stags and hens
"The Bushcraft was great - Adam and Maria really know their stuff and
were proactive about getting people involved. It was cool to learn about
building shelters and then to actually put one together ourselves, I've
attached some pics of our efforts! The fire lighting was good fun too.
Overall I was impressed by how engaged/entertained we all were
throughout - probably not an easy feat to pull off with a stag party!"

We had a really great time - I think a couple in the group were a little sceptical of my plan when I first told them, but then everyone ended up having a great laugh. I found it all very easy indeed to get it sorted with all of the team at the farm, all the way through from making the initial booking. I appreciated you chasing me up when I hadn't got the answers you needed, as I think you also appreciated that organising a larger group (partic. boys), and that was carried through to our stay and the scavenger hunt. We all thought it was very refreshing not to be overloaded with Health and Safety warnings and rules and regs, and rather given a degree of trust and freedom to enjoy the brilliant camp and farm, which is just wonderful by the way! The hunt was really fun, and well pitched for the group, and I was really pleased we went for that option.
