The leaders in luxury camping, Feather Down Farms were the first with tents featuring wood burners, flushing loos, wooden floors and proper beds. Over the past decade, Feather Down have proudly pioneered a new way to holiday under canvas in luxury.
Established in The Netherlands in 2004 and reaching Britain the following year, Feather Down Farms is the leading holiday provider of glamping farm stays, operating over 400 luxury tents on more than 60 farm locations: in the UK, Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, USA and South Africa.
In Britain, there are 30+ locations, all of which are full during the summer holidays. Customers can choose extra-luxurious Frills tents at many sites or opt for the classic wooden-floored luxury tents. The Feather Down Collection locations, which include Chesters in the Scottish Borders, often offer an option of Frills tents with hot tubs.
Chesters has sheep, cattle, roe deer, pheasants, partridges and buzzards for families to see and meet. Guests can bring up to 2 dogs, arranged beforehand when booking. For children, there is a huge treehouse; fort with slides and climbing nets; mini animal safari; and more just over the river at Born in the Borders. Den building is also a big hit and stream-following to the river. Guests can try their hand at fishing and also go boating. Chesters even has its own real ale microbrewery.
Chesters has so much to offer that you may already have seen it on TV. Channel 4's programme Country House Rescue showed all of John and Ellie Henderson's efforts to bring Chesters up to tip-top shape.
