Both well travelled, and passionate about the countryside, Gavin and Jemma finally made Fisherton Farm home in 2006 and are continuously making improvements to their 100 acre 16th Century farm. Diversification and sustainability are the heart of the farms' survival, now in their 11th year glamping they are delighted to share this special part of the world and have been rewarded with meeting many happy guests. Gavin has farmed all his life, with his prized herd of pedigree Simmental cattle (est. 1978 Foreland Herd) and rare Zwartbles sheep. Jemma is an artist specialising in pen & ink (www.drawntotheworld.com)

Our Honesty Shop is open 24/7 for you to help yourselves to beach paraphernalia & boogie boards, swim shoes, masks & snorkels (for wild swimming in the river ) wellies & warm coats and scooters for kids to zip up our quiet lane to the park.
Their two children prompted Gavin and Jemma to buy the first wagon in 2011, discovering and taming a beautiful wood (the cows formerly used for natural shelter) inspired them to purchase and restore three more wagons and to create this low impact, eco-friendly, off grid experience. An unusual getaway to enjoy the wild life get back to basics, unplug and switch off...
