Get back to nature on a family trip at Mary Arden’s Farm and relive the daily routine and skills that would have been familiar to the young William Shakespeare from visits to his Grandparents house in the 16th Century.

Watch the farmer's wife prepare home-grown food over the open fire in the farmhouse kitchen and learn about Tudor table manners. Help with tasks like basket-weaving and bread-making. With loads of family friendly activities scheduled throughout the day you can experience the real workings of a Tudor farm, including animal-tending. See falconry displays and try your hand at archery or visit the timber framed adventure playground. When it’s time for a rest, sample Tudor inspired specials in the café.

Why not extend your stay at Northmere Cottages or Wootton Park in the heart of rural Warwickshire and experience farm life in the 21st Century!
