About this place

Pits Wood was planted in 2003, it’s a very pretty area to stay and an opportunity to see young woodland growing with developing ecosystems. Accessed through Vicarage Field and nestled amongst surrounding fields, Pits Wood is located near where many of the farm animals live so don’t be surprised to hear piglets grunting or chickens clucking. The wood is approx. 200m to the farm and access is possible with a car when fields are dry. Our rustic cabins are the perfect rural get away without the effort of camping – think of them as wooden tents with a proper bed and wood burner. Cabins are suitable for two adults and two children - each cabin has a double bed and camp beds can be provided for children (under 2 stay for free). A wood burner is in every cabin, ideal to for those chilly evenings. Logs can be purchased from the Farm Shop. Well behaved dogs are welcome. There is room for one car to be parked next to each cabin.

Church Farm Ardeley is an all-round family adventure; great fun for adults and kids alike!

On your visit to the farm you will meet and feed our Red Poll Cattle, Lleyn and Welsh Black Mountain Sheep, Berkshire Pigs, British Lop Pigs, Aylesbury Ducks, Laying Chickens in Vicars Orchard, Chickens in Pits Wood, as well as Norfolk Black Turkeys and Embden Geese. There are nearly always chicks in the chick shed, lambs, piglets and calves to see too.

Around the grounds there is a good amount of flora and fauna with an orchard where you can pick your own fruit and veggies (seasonal), a magical fairy woodland, two ponds, a thriving home garden and three bee hives. We have seasonal activities for our visitors, such as lamb bottle feeding during Spring, and harvesting in September/October.

Over the Easter, Summer, Halloween, Christmas and the half-term holidays we have special themed attractions, Easter egg hunts, trick or treating, meeting Father Christmas and so on. Alongside this, children can go on tractor rides, revel in the woodland play areas, follow the farm trail, play in the sand pit, plus lots more to see and explore! Indoors there is a soft play area for the under 5’s (currently Covid-19 restrictions are in place).

The farm has a shop that is well-stocked. You can purchase delicious farm grown fruit, veggies and local meats. We also support the local community by offering a Rural Care Programme for adults with learning difficulties. The Rural Care team become Co-Farmers who gain valuable, real-life work experience on the Farm. In addition, we have educational programs for schools, and for local businesses and forward-thinking leaders, we run motivational team building workshops for staff, groups and like-minded people.

If camping or glamping is your thing, you can do this too. Camp with us and you will sleep under the stars on a real working farm set in 170 acres of beautiful Hertfordshire countryside.

We have a Farm Café and Pub which serves delicious meals, snacks and cakes (currently Covid-19 restrictions are in place). In the café we have a range of hot and cold drinks best served with fresh cake or sultana scones with cream and jam. For those with food intolerances, we have gluten and vegan options. The Jolly Waggoner’s Pub is a traditional free-house pub that serves real hearty food, real ales alongside a real fire.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!
