The Owner Says
Canvas Lodge with Farmhouse Shower:
We believe in simplicity, but rest assured you will not be sacrificing luxury when staying in our canvas lodges. At 45m2, our spacious lodges are placed in stunning locations and will meet your need for modern comfort and craving to be close to nature. The Canvas Lodge is suitable for 6 people, 5 adults and 1 child up to 12 years old. Our interior features a fully equipped kitchen with a wood-stove, a living/dining area, outdoor area with BBQ, and three sleeping areas with high-quality mattresses, pillows, bedding and fluffy duvets!
The Farmhouse Shower:
Most of our communal showers on the farm integrate perfectly with the farmhouse. What once used to be materials used for farm life, have now been upcycled to our rustic style communal showers. At some farms, drinking troughs serves as a sink, stable doors are now used for the shower doors and the hay racks are used to hang your towels. Know that you will always be able to shower with warm water where electricity is also available to blow-dry your hair. In each of the farm, the farmers have showed their originality by creating unique showers in the spirit of Feather Down.
We are all about getting back to the simpler times away from technology and to reconnect with nature and therefore do not have electricity and wi-fi in any of our farms.
Experience the Feather Down Feeling:
At Feather Down you will get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and experience the simpler times away from technology, getting the family together to reconnect with nature. Enjoy the rhythm of the day as your life in the countryside will be guided by nature. Wake up to the sound of the farm animals, collect eggs in the afternoon, dip into our hot tub, and end the day sharing your farm stories by the candlelights or outside by the campfire while roasting marshmallows. A laid back quality time and a true digital detox for everyone!
