We are the sixth generation of Elliotts to farm the lands here at Tonagh House.
As a family run farm, we have always tried to farm commercially but in an environmentally sensitive manner.
This will become obvious the moment you enter our farm. Our fields are green and bountiful,home mostly to cattle. However our fields remain small and bounded by ecologically diverse sprawling hedgerows interspersed with mature oak. ash and sycamore trees.
These hedgerows provide safe wildlife corridors for the hares, rabbits, pheasants and many other species seen regularly in our fields.
Many visitors to our farm have commented on how peaceful and secluded our farmland is.
Having brought our own family Glamping a few times in recent years to their great enjoyment we decided to share our farms peace and tranquility for others to enjoy .
Also we feel our experience of visiting other Glamping sites has helped us provide facilities that are second to none.
Our site is located in a large old enclosed garden with stunning lake views.
Being enclosed means our site is particularly suited to families as all facilities are within the boundary of the old garden and farmyard so parents can relax in the knowledge that smaller children cannot stray too far. We are proud to have no steps anywhere to accommodate the young and the less agile.
A unique part of developing our Glampsite involved the construction of a “wellness walk” which is a 1.5km securely fenced path through 100 acres of our farm. You will wander by groups of contented grazing cattle on one side and forestry on the other. Depending on the time of day you are likely to see swans floating majestically along the Tonagh River and hares frolicking in the pastures not to mention the many wild birds that frequent the quiet stillness.
Due to its remote location there are neither houses nor roads visible from the path,which makes for a tranquil stroll or even a quick jog for those who wish for a quicker pace.
