We firmly believe that food is the most important part of any trip so don't worry, we've got lots of options...
There are bbqs and charcoal available for each tent and You will have enough cutlery, crockery, glasses for the people in your tent, as some carefully tended herbs growing nearby to make you feel as Jamie Oliver as you like.
You can bring food with you, or to make things even easier if you want to do an online shop so you don’t have to carry heavy bags of food and booze on the train send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and if possible we will arrange for someone to be there to meet it and put it away ready for you. There are communal fridges and we can provide cool boxes and ice packs for your tents if required.
There are several pubs within walking distance: The Fishery and The Waggon and Horses are the closest, both about 10 minutes away and both have good food. The Waggon and Horses has a big beer garden and an open fire inside if the weather is less than perfect. If you want a longer walk then The Three Horseshoes in Letchmore Heath is a lovely pub in a picture perfect village about an hour's walk away through our woods and across the fields. They have a new gorgeous covered garden area and often have live music on a Saturday night. There is also The Battle Axes which also has a nice garden. Its part of the Chef and Brewer group so has very good food.
Turner & George
We are very excited to have teamed up with Turner & George, a fantastic independent butcher based in Clerkenwell. Richard H Turner is Executive Chef of Hawksmoor and an acclaimed restaurateur with an unwavering passion for food. James George is a man who knows and loves his trade – he’s a keen advocate of traditional cutting methods and seam butchery. They choose the finest naturally reared meat from British native and rare breeds, working with farms and farmers whom they know from experience rear meat responsibly and ethically. Their beef is 100% grass-fed and dry aged to a minimum of 28 days, and all meat is completely hormone, antibiotic and cruelty free. This, they know, results in a well bred and cared for animal that tastes truly amazing.
Visit their website to see the range of meats they will deliver to the farm. And all guests of Home Farm Glamping get a 10% discount, just place your order and enter the code GLAMEAT10 when you make your order. And we are working on a specific Home Farm Glamping range of bbq and breakfast boxes for you.
Friday campfire supper
Alternatively, if cooking up a storm just seems like too much effort after a hard day’s work, on Friday night we can provide a delicious chilli or stew with baked potatoes all ready to go for you just as soon as you’ve lit your campfire and poured yourself a drink. Please select the campfire supper option on the booking page.
If you are vegetarian but want to go for this option please send an email before you book to email@example.com and we can try to work out an alternative meal for you.
Again if you can't be bothered to get up and busy yourself with a campfire first thing in the morning, we can also provide a cooked breakfast and fresh tea or coffee.
If you’re in a big group we can help arrange catering of whatever style you want. What about having a delicious picnic delivered in a gorgeous hamper for lunch, or a hog roast, or even set up a 3 course banquet by your tent with a chef to cater to your every need.
We can work with any caterer you like, but our favourites our the amazing Colleen and Jean-Luc from Sainlo Events who will look after you so well you'll never want to leave.
Plus keep an eye on our special events page to see if there is a Gourmet Garden Party supper club happening in the barn during your weekend.
We are very lucky in Hertfordshire to have lots of fantastic entrepreneurs creating all kinds of delicious products, and we have teamed up with a few of these to create our own mini shop within our barn. These are products that you can cook during your stay with us to make your life a bit easier, or alternatively they are great things to take home at the end of your stay to make sure you have a lovely treat and a reminder of your stay with us.
