About this place

The ESSENTIALS Bell Tent package includes hire of a spacious canvas Bell Tent for up to 4 nights. Suitable for 2 adults and up to 3 children, the bell tent is not glamped and remember to bring your own bedding for this option :-). As standard the bell tent comes with one double bed and two single mattresses (complete with new waterproof disposable mattress covers) and a third single camp bed can be provided on request. A small rustic wooden crate is provided for storage. The farm is a place for quiet camping and enjoyment of the countryside and no amplified music of any kind is allowed at on site. It’s essential that prior to booking you familiarise yourself with our Camping Rules & Regulations, as there are important points you will need to know as part of your stay with us, thank you. Our bell tents are in two set locations around the farm - Pits Wood which is closer to the main farm & the more secluded Squitmore Spring Wood which is 5 minutes drive from the main farmyard (view map HERE) - and cannot be moved. Cars can be parked next to the bell tents. Occasionally, we do move the tents although this will incur an additional charge. Please contact us to ensure this is feasible before booking.

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!
