Take a look at some feedback below.

The children were all fully engaged throughout the day because the activities were tailored to their needs and age. The staff both highly skilled at encouraging and supporting the children to engage… Excellent, positive relationships were established from the moment we go off the minibus and developed as the day went on. Really great personal interaction with, and genuine interest in the children.

Excellent mix of hands on farm experience vs learning vs. fun vs. downtime… The staff were excellent, friendly, great to be around. We will be back regularly. Need we say more!!!!

I like east shallowford farm because it is away from the hustle and bustle of London. Also I have my GCSEs and when I’m there it takes the stress of it away from me as it’s very peaceful. Lastly the people there are very kind and friendly and welcoming.

I wanted to thank you for having us to stay at East Shallowford Farm back in February. We had a really good time, and all the young people said they did too – and most would even consider coming back! The fact that we were outside so much in such cold weather, but were pretty much toasty and warm is a testament to the activities and to the clothing!

And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so.
