Catanger Llama Farm

Towcester, Northamptonshire, England

Custom built gypsy caravan + Woodland Shepherd hut near Towcester. Enjoy nature + a herd of llamas as neighbours. Dogs welcome. Closed in winter.

Get away from everyday life for the peace, beauty and unique experience of a short break on a llama farm. Set in acres of gorgeous countryside, surrounded by llamas and wildlife, undisturbed and at one with nature. Catanger Farm has the pleasure of offering a traditional gypsy caravan and a shepherd's hut for you to stay in. Each bespoke dwelling occupies their own secluded location on the farm. Relax and enjoy everything Catanger has to offer you, exploring the 20 acres of native woodland, watching baby llamas play or just drinking in the views and appreciating the tranquillity.

Nestled in woodland, yet only a mere 100 yards to the amenities is the luxurious shepherd’s hut. Hand-built of wood and steel is a light, spacious, romantic place for two. Be at one with nature with stunning views at every turn; through the woods, for miles over neighbouring farmland as far as the eye can see and of course the llamas! A comfortable double bed, modern table and chairs, a wood burning stove and a balcony for cooking and relaxing. You also have a fire pit with seating for BBQ’s or just toasting your marshmallows whilst watching the sunset. Facilities for the hut's guests are 100m away at the Visitors Centre, and exclusively for their use.

Further down the land in a picturesque open spot just on the edge of the woods is the handcrafted, bow-topped gypsy caravan providing a little touch of quirky charm. Decorated traditionally this wooden beauty has a cosy double bed and space for two camp beds (for children). There is a campfire area for outdoor cooking and plenty of grass to play or relax on. Do bring a tent for extra friends or older children at an additional cost. You have the breathtaking endless views of the farm, the llamas almost up to your door and the surrounding farmlands - plus your facilities are just next door....virtually ensuite. This is a small cabin alongside the gypsy caravan with its own shower, loo and undercover gas cooking.

Well behaved dogs welcome.
