You are welcome to bring your four-legged friend to the café and on the farm trails providing they are kept on a lead.

Things to do during your stay


You will be left to your own devices during your stay, and are free to explore our picturesque organic farm. We have farm trails weaving around the farm, which will take you around our pastures, woodland and along the river. Why not say hello to some of our friendly animals as you explore?

Our organic Farm Shop is a short walk away, where you can purchase delicious local produce to prepare in the yurts. We can also provide you with a hamper of your favourite goodies to make your stay stress- and decision-free – just let us know when you book.

Our yurts are designed to help you reconnect with nature, your loved ones and yourself. They are well and truly off-grid. For this reason we have no Wi-Fi facilities at the yurts. There are electricity sockets available for use at the farm in the main building, but with the Shropshire Hills as your playground, this is the perfect place to switch off!

The nature of our yurts and surroundings lends itself perfectly to families that home educate; there are so many new experiences you can enjoy with your children whilst they learn about the natural world first hand.

Supporting our community

Arthur’s Farm Kitchen is run by the Fordhall Community Land Initiative, a charitable society set up to benefit the community.

All profits from the café are re-invested within our educational and community work.

We are proud to support various community initiatives such as The Chatty Café Scheme and hold Dementia friendly status. We have a ‘Chatter and Natter’ table, where people can sit if they’re happy to talk to other customers. The Chatty Café scheme was started to help bring people together and start up conversations.

Arthur's Farm Kitchen also plays host to a 'Morning Makers' session each Tuesday from 10am, run by one of our volunteers, Elaine.

Plus, each Friday, it is the base of our community-led Afternoon Amble group. Open to anyone feeling isolated or lonely, this friendly group meets at 1pm for drinks, cake and a gentle farm amble. For more information on any of these, please feel free to call us in the office, on 01630 638 696.
