Families on the Farm 1 Night Sleepover
Come and join us for our Families on the Farm Sleepover. A special event specifically designed to give families with a child/young person (under 20 years) with learning difficulties or disability an opportunity to spend quality time together and meet others in similar situations.
Taking place at our beautiful farm, you will have the chance to explore the grounds, participate in activities such as arts and crafts workshops, outdoor activities, learning new skills and finding out about our environment from our knowledgeable staff.
Families will enjoy fun farm and nature based activities whilst socialising and creating friendships with other families.
You will have the opportunity to take part in activities around the farm which could include animal care, gardening, cookery, being creative and exploring nature.
Learning about the things around us and our environment in a fun and supportive way.
We will tailor the event to suit the needs of the individuals in the group so it is important you let us know in advance of any requirements you and your family may have.
Full details will be sent to you in advance of your visit.
Catering and Accommodation
Accommodation will be provided in our converted farm buildings with 1 room designated per family with shared bathroom facilities.
All meals will be provided – just let us know if you have any specific dietary requirements, we will be only too happy to accommodate.
We hope that families make the most of their stay and take the opportunity to relax and have fun in great company. To help create the atmosphere in the evening, we’ll provide a firepit, kindling, logs and cheese and biscuits. A fridge will be available for you to bring your own drinks and snacks to enjoy around the campfire. Don’t forget your cards or games!
We have a list of shops, restaurants, takeaways and pubs so that you can pop out if wish to. (Children will need to be supervised by a responsible adult).
Magdalen is a working organic farm set in the glorious countryside of Dorset & Somerset. At the heart of our farm is an education centre, from which we offer activities with accommodation and delicious meals. Our aim is to encourage as many people as possible from all walks of life to enjoy the great outdoors.
All Terrain Wheelchair Hire
On-site we have 3 all-terrain wheelchairs (bookable in advance) to help those less able guests to get around the farm.
We also have a dedicated "Changing place" for those that may need it (please bring your own hoist if required).
Please book a wheelchair ticket if you require one.
We understand that spending time together as a family can be difficult due to various commitments so this is your chance to reconnect away from everyday life.
Our staff are highly trained and committed to providing everyone with an enjoyable experience – something we know all families need!
So why not come along and join us for this unique event?
We look forward to seeing you there!
