Get back to nature

The farm provides a wonderful backdrop and access to the Shropshire countryside. Just stop and take in the beautiful landscape around us whilst you are here. Send your senses into overdrive – hug the oak trees, taste the crops, listen to the barn owls and woodpeckers or watch the lapwings in flight. There’s an abundance of nature to soak up around us.

At the bottom of the farmyard, there’s an acre of grassland. In the summer months it has a three hole Pitch and Putt you can play. Or you can just use the space to escape for some reflective time.

Food and drink

We have recommended catering partners, or you can bring your own food. A barbecue and fire bowl can be provided on request.


Charity Farm is eco-friendly using solar panels for electricity, sustainable boiler for heating and our arable farm is farmed sensitively to protect and nurture our environment.

Whatever your course, workshop or retreat the idyllic setting of Burlton Cottages and Spa (alongside the care that will be taken to look after you) will ensure a successful event.
