Holiday accommodation - Farm Diversification - Farm Lodges

If you’ve diversified into holiday accommodation please tell us your experiences, whether you’ve just started or been at it for years, share the pros and cons and what you’ve learnt along the way.

If you would like to help others with their farm diversification research please answer our questions below, feel free to discuss what you feel is most relevant and add on any information you like.
