Mains farm is a family site. We are not suitable for and do not allow stag parties, hen parties, single sex groups or unsupervised under 18s. We operate an ‘All Quiet after 11pm’ policy. If you do not feel you can adhere to this, then Mains Farm is not the site for you!
However, if you are organising a reunion, a family get together, or a special birthday, or something similar then we would be happy to accommodate you.
Please contact Julie on 01768 898342 to discuss, as the site has numerous separate areas which can be booked exclusively and have been used for similar events in the past.
