All our workers have the opportunity to stay in accommodation on the farm. It is important for us to stress that the accommodation offered is not contractual. The accommodation at Bankhead of Kinloch consists of residential (large) caravans. These caravans each have 2 or 3 bedrooms, with 2 single beds in each room. In each caravan there is a kitchen (with cooker and fridge), shower and toilet. Each caravan has water, electricity and gas for heating water and for the cooker. Each caravan has a full set of kitchen and cleaning equipment and an inventory below shows exactly what is provided.

Each worker is given a new pillow, pillow case and sheet when they arrive. Every worker should bring a sleeping bag.


Communal Area

There is a large communal area for workers to socialise. In this area there is: TV, music player, computer games, 3 pool tables, 3 table tennis tables, table football and tables and chairs.

There is also extra kitchen facilities (with deep freezers) and toilet and shower facilities in this area.


Washing Machines

There are washing machines on the farm in a separate laundry, with irons and ironing boards available. Instructions on how to use these machines will be given when you arrive. Again, the cost of using these facilities is included in the accommodation charge.



Every worker will be provided with transport to a supermarket once a week. When hired buses are used, this cost is included in the accommodation charge.


Computer Room

There are some computers available to use for accessing the internet and WiFi is also provided free of charge in this area for use with your own device.


The cost of accommodation (caravan, electricity, common room, washing machines, transport to supermarket, WiFi and first bottle of gas) is the national rate of £8.20 per day. Further Gas bottles are available to buy from the farm at the current cost price.
