Jam-packed with activities

pic-axeThe Sussex Wildlife Trust will be running a variety of wildlife walks, talks and crafts.  We’ll be setting bug traps, putting out night-vision cameras, tracking bats and hedgehogs and discovering the hidden creatures lurking in the farm fields and woodland.

There will be awesome bushcrafts from bow making to fire lighting, all run by the super cool Axe & Paddle team.

Nature Nurture Sussex will be joining us again, plus there will be woodland crafts, treasure hunts, tractor rides and a bat walk with the Sussex Bat Society plus many more surprises. On Saturday night there will be a big old barn party and a dressing up competition, this year’s theme is farm animals, there will be prizes for the best dressed!

Want to get up close to some farm animals?

pic-cowBusses Farm is the perfect location as it’s a fully working organic farm.  There are a variety of creatures to pet and feed, plus the farm team will be on hand to answer questions and run tractor tours of this fabulous 250 acre estate. This is all within our fabulous working farm, where there are pigs, sheep, cows and chickens to get to know!

Love a bit of camping?

pic-tentSo do we! Weekend tickets include tent pitch, plus a scrummy farm BBQ on the Friday night.  We’ll be lighting the campfire both nights giving Escapers a chance to tell stories, meet new friends and toast a marshmallow or two. Plus on the Saturday there will be local food suppliers selling delicious grub to keep hungry Escapers well fed and watered.

It’s a fabulous opportunity for kids to run wild and connect with the countryside, plus a chance for the whole family to escape from everyday life.

Come and join us down on the farm for a magical weekend. All you need is a tent and a sense of adventure.

Or are you more of a glamper?

With two yurts sleeping six and two bell tens available, you can have a little bit of extra comfort during your stay. Check out our glamping options here.
