Fancy an overnight stay at a Farm specifically for family carers and one that can accommodate the person they’re caring for? Sunset Care Farm is the place to go.
Sunset Barn Care Farm
Sunset Barn Care Farm exists to offer placement opportunities for those wishing to work in horticultural/animal husbandry setting in which they wish to improve their self esteem, gain confidence, recover from mental ill health or develop new practical and social skills in a nurturing environment.
We also have accommodation available for short weekend breaks from 5 p.m. on Friday afternoon through to 8 a.m. on Monday morning with full use of, The Cart Lodge, our new care farm building which has large kitchen, lounge area and upstairs two bedrooms, one of which is a twin and one a king size bed with bathroom facilities. Again only for identified carers this is FREE to use for the weekend, again spaces are limited and on first come first served basis.
Activities include feeding the animals and then anything that is seasonally suitable like, working on the vegetable patch, in the poly or net tunnels, walking or training the dogs over an agility course, flower arranging, yoga, cooking etc., etc., you name it and if we can we will give it a go. Places are limited and are on a first come first served basis. We regularly have four people attend but have space for a few more, at no cost to the carer whatsoever.
These breaks could be for the carer and cared for so that they have a positive shared experience together or simply for a carer to take a break from their caring role.
