Last weekend I visited Hill Farm and Orchard in the lovely village of Slapton where I stayed in a luxury en-suite Wigwam. Hill Farm and Orchard is a working farm, family run since 1888. In the area you can admire the views of the scenic Grand Union Canal and the Ivinghoe Hills Nature Reserve. The two Wigwams are located in the orchard to the side of the canal with colourful canal boats moored close by and with stunning views of the Chiltern Hills. We spent time exploring the area and visited the local pub The Carpenters Arms which dates back to the 16th Century.
The Wigwam itself contains everything you need. Inside you will find a comfortable double bed, sofa bed, en-suite with shower, fully equipped kitchen, table and chairs, TV with built in DVD player, hairdryer, Tassimo coffee machine and electric heater. On arrival we were greeted with home made cakes and chocolates. Although the temperature outside reached -1°C at night, the Wigwam was very warm and cosy. It was a perfect relaxing weekend before going back to my busy life in London.
