The beautiful mature orchard at Hill Farm is home to wonderful old apple, pear and damson trees. The tranquillity of the orchard, with its canal side setting and breathtaking views of the Chiltern Hills make this an ideal setting to enjoy a unique glamping experience.
When visiting Hill Farm we invite you to step back to more tranquil times. Leafy lanes, apples slowly ripening on ancient laden trees, a majestic heron standing guard on the canal bank. Gaily painted narrow boats meander by.
Whether you seek a solitary weekend escape, some couple time, fun with friends, or to spend quality time with your family Hill Farm and Orchard is the perfect location for your short glamping break.
