Avalen Farm

When Tom and I first laid eyes on Avalen Farm we absolutely fell in love. The farm was previously owned by an elderly couple who loved animals and birds, there were many animal and bird houses dotted around the farm. It was clear that the 8 acres of land had been left to nature for that last few years, everything very overgrown and already re-wilded, an absolute haven for wildlife.

The fishing lake is the icing on the cake, not only is it a stunning backdrop to the camping and glamping field but fishing is a wonderful pastime, enjoyed by many. We have enlisted the help of Bruno Broughton who is a fishery management consultant to educate us on the running of a fishery alongside the camping and glamping.

Our dream is to create a sustainable fishing, camping and glamping site where people can appreciate nature and wildlife and enjoy the space around them to enhance their well-being.

We hope to encourage and give a home to more wildlife species here at Avalen Farm.

We have an action plan in place.
