The Meadows at Polehanger, Shefford

It's glamping, but not as you know it... in fact there's not a canvas peak in sight at these brand new family friendly cabins in rural Bedfordshire.

Weekend Escapes

Polehanger Farm is nestled in gorgeous rural Bedfordshire and is the childhood home of Andrew Foster. With the farm still in the family, Andrew and his wife, Charlotte, have watched their young twins, Henry and Esme, grow up exploring the surrounding woodlands and countryside, so it felt like a no-brainer to share their amazing slice of country life with others. Lo and behold, their luxe glamping site, The Meadows at Polehanger, was born.

Now don’t be put off if you’re not a fan of kipping under canvas as here you’ll have a solid roof over your head and (whisper it in case the diehard campers hear you) heating, so it’s an all-weather, year-round option.

And it really is perfect for families. The four verrrry comfortable cabins sleep up to six people – ideal for either four adults or two adults and up to four children (under 16), and come complete with a private decking and garden area with firepits and unbridled countryside views to wake up to, which are filled with wildflowers during the summer months. Beam us up!

Two of the cabins even have a hot tub (now you’re talking!) and one has a freestanding bath. Plus they’re all gorgeously decorated with comfy beds, sofas and cute kitchenettes, stocked with a complimentary welcome pack on arrival.

And, if you don’t fancy taking on all the food shopping for your stay (you’re on holiday, after all!), from late spring you’ll be able to pre-order a Continental or English Breakfast box, packed with pastries or bacon and eggs (plus veggie options). And for the evening, a BBQ box, full of goodies to cook up on the barbie. Plus the kids will love the Family Firepit pack which comes with a firelighting kit, marshmallow forks and Smore-making ingredients!

As for what to do while you’re there – you’ll have 7km of countryside to explore (and that’s just on the farm!), including the Polehanger Farm River Woodland, with its family friendly trail. Plus you’re on the doorstep of English Heritage site, Wrest Park, Hitchin Lavender Farm and a short drive to the Shuttleworth Estate. So for a family friendly staycay that’ll blow those cobwebs away, put The Meadows on your wishlist, stat!
