Glamping Herefordshire with Hot Tub
Glamping at Hollings Hill Farm, our Duchy of Cornwall farm, is one of the originals. We’ve reduced the number of tents and upped the level of luxury – in Feather Down’s uniquely rustic way – by becoming the first Retreat with Treats farm. Set in the Malverns, a stay in one of our six tents provides you with a complete package that makes your camping experience even easier.. The farm continues to be the menagerie it’s always been, and our goats, Holstein-Friesian cows, ponies and chickens will all be waiting to welcome you too.
Austin and Faye Knowles
Feather Down proudly takes its legendary rustic charm to grand new heights this year. Cranking up the comfort to offer its guests some extremely lovely added perks, the UK’s own Hollings Hill Farm will pioneer this inclusive experience, giving its guests an extra peaceful, extra pampering Feather Down Farm Days break.
Each tent will have the unique homespun feel that Feather Down has come to be known for, but the style is slightly more sumptuous. Additions to the tents include leather easy chairs; wood-fired ovens (instead of stoves); verandahs that add a third of the tent’s size to its frontage; a rustic outdoor AGA-style cooker for relaxed al fresco meals; and one session per person in our hot tub and sauna spa experience. Set in a beautiful field, this takes place under the huge, star-filled sky.
Because the whole retreat is about affordable-but-exclusive comfort, Hollings Hill has reduced its number of tents from 10 to six, with an additional tent specially set up for group feasts.

THE HOLLINGS HILL FARM FAMILY
The Knowles family, Austin & Fay and our children Grace (4), Alice (3) and George (15 months), started farming on Hollings Hill 9 years ago. Previously, Austin lived and worked on his parents’ farm near Bath. Members of the extended Knowles-family are; collie sheepdog ‘Pogo’ and 2 traditional working Labradors ‘Fig and Nutty’, who differ from normal labradors as their noses are longer.
