Jane and Ian would love you to join them for a weekend gathering in the Chilterns… No special occasion, but just because we can!

To our friends and family,

We would like to invite you to a weekend of social relaxing and celebrating our friendship! 

The idea is just to chill, spend time enjoying the great outdoors and maybe trying out some of our crazy hobbies! You can dip in and out of events, or stay all weekend. Please RSVP using the form below, so that we know when to expect you. We will be arriving at Orchard View Farm on Friday evening and staying there Friday and Saturday night.  

Over the weekend the onsite café will be open to the public and our party. They provide great breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea options for you to buy. Most of their products are locally sourced and they use organic ingredients where possible.

Onsite, dog-friendly accommodation includes a mixture of new glamping pods and tents (all fully equipped); as well as plenty of campervan and standard tent pitches and the site has a modern shower/wc block. Alternatively, there are several good Airbnb places and hotel options very local to the site. (Please contact me if you need advice on a choice). Accommodation, whether you choose to be on or off site, will need to be booked and paid for by you direct. We suggest that you book as soon as possible to ensure that you have somewhere to stay!

If you would like to camp but do not have camping equipment please let us know as we have spares available!

The Event Itinerary 

Saturday 

11.30am  We will be guiding local walks from the site heading off across the fields to a lovey Chiltern’s local pub before returning to the site at about 4.00pm. There is the option of a flat walk, approx. 4km, or an extended route for the more enthusiastic of 10km! 

5.30pm  We will present a small wine and cheese tasting session introducing locally produced Chiltern wines, beer and cheese from the nearby Nettlebed Creamery – We are hosting this and need to confirm numbers so please book yourself a place.
