Our location is perfectly suited for those studying at the Defence Academy in Shrivenham and those wishing to visit Swindon and it's many attractions but also ideal for those wishing to take in The Ridgeway Trail, university city of Oxford, Roman city of Bath, metropolis of Bristol and the famous Cotswolds. It is also convenient for those wishing to attend the Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) which is just 20 minutes away. STEAM - The Museum of the Great Western Railway is located in the town beside the popular McArthur Glen Great Western Designer Outlet Village. There is something for everything in Swindon with activities to suit adventure seekers and those wishing to chill out. The accommodation is on the No 66 bus route which travels regularly between Swindon and Oxford stopping at The Defence Academy. The nearest railway station is Swindon and we are just 5 minutes from the M4 (Junction 15). We are here to make your stay special, stress free and memorable. We'd be delighted to order flowers, recommend a takeaway, point you to local places to visit or take you to the beginning of The Ridgeway Trail and collect you later (booking essential and charges apply). IMPORTANT: The farm is home to five rescue dogs which you may see from time to time. It is also home to active beehives. Should either of these create a problem for you, please, please, let us know - thank you. More
