Rural life in the UK has traditionally been centred around farming and what better way to explore the countryside than getting away from everything and staying on a working farm? If you fancy waking up to the sights and sounds of life in the country, not to mention the kind of breakfast that will really set you up for the day ahead, then a break on a farm is the ideal chance to get back to nature and immerse yourself in the pleasures of rural life. With a wide range of locations to choose from, you’re sure to find something that suits you perfectly. If you’re a hands-on kind of person there may be opportunities to get up close with the animals and watch over their daily routine such as milking and feeding. You will also have the benefit of the best countryside guides, as your host will have a unique insight into the local area. If you fancy a secluded stroll, some wildlife spotting or a great place for a picnic, you’ll be in good hands.
