Things to bring:
Wellies

Ufikiaji wa mgeni
The hut is at the other side of our free range poultry field, so wellies are a good idea to walk through the field from the track to the loo/ car park as when it rains trainers will get wet in the long grass. Embrace the farmer vibes and get the wellies on! (or ask to borrow some - message us if you need some, if we have your size you can borrow them for your stay)

Once guests have booked they will be able to access specific directions to the yurt from the main road and our check in guide which details the specifics of where everything is.

Mambo mengine ya kukumbuka
There's no shower.
There's one parking space for the hut - it has a sign so you know where to park. If you're coming in multiple cars park the other cars at the bottom of the farm road (so they don't get in the way of farm vehicles.)

FARM PRODUCE

We have eggs, lamb, goat meat and veg for sale from the farm. If you would like to buy any just message before hand to see what we have in season that's ready to eat. Eggs are £2 for 6. Goat mince £5.99 for 500g. lamb chops £5 for 6 chops.

Hello! Welcome to Cronkshaw Fold Farm, an hour North of Manchester, England. We (Dot - that's me - I run the farm, my small team of awesome farm staff and my retired parents - a farmer and a computer engineer) have a handful of unique, quirky accommodations here which are helping us earn additional revenue through having guests to stay. We are saving up for solar panels, a wind turbine, switching out diesel farm machinery for electric and converting our current farming practices to lower carbon alternatives. Every penny you spend here helps us reach these goals quicker, so thank you for considering us. Our aim is that guests here can have as low an environmental impact as possible when holidaying with us. From washing bed linens in eco-only detergents purchased from our local single use plastic free shops (of which we are lucky enough to have TWO!) to upcycling all the accommodation furniture, fixtures and fittings. We do everything we can think of to be as environmentally friendly as possible. We’re currently working on installing Tesla charging points for our guests so those with electric cars can easily charge on site, too. Choose from our Shepherd's Hut, The Old Farm Office, Coven Treehouse and Alden Woodland Yurt. We also have a spring water filtered hot tub that can be booked separately as can breakfast hampers, farm tours and more. Nosey at us online by searching 'Cronkshaw' if you want to find out more about our farm.
