Escape the City in 1 Hour: Bishop Stortford Edition
We’re back with another edition in our Escape The City Series! Bishop Stortford might not be top of your list of places to visit, however, it’s actually a great place to get a little country air and workout with our Ambassadors, Tom Kemp, out on the farm! Here’s what you should do in Bishop Stortford on a day trip out of London:
Located just a short drive away from the station, you've probably already heard about Farm Fitness thanks to its well-deserved attention recently - even being voted as one of the best gyms in the world by Men’s Health. Founded by our Ambassador, Tom Kemp, it’s a totally unique workout experience. Kind of like a Crossfit box, but located on a farm in the great outdoors, the concept is blending modified strongman, functional bodybuilding, callisthenics and cardio; designed to be accessible to all fitness levels.
Whether you join them for a Boom, Build, Blast or Burn Bootcamp, all classes will be demanding but can be modified to suit any ability – just get ready to jump over hay bales, press logs and pull some seriously heavy weights!
This great little spot was a saviour to us after a VERY wet outdoor workout, and we’re already longing to go back for another feast. With a brunch menu goes on for days, you’ll be pushed to choose from options such as; toasted banana and pecan bread with espresso butter, stacked blueberry pancakes, superfood and quinoa salad and all the egg/avo combinations you could ever wish for.
Owned by The Lukies family, who have been farming at Cammas Hall Farm since 1889, this picks your own will take any country bumpkins right back to their youth. The mission of the farm is to be a destination where visitors can enjoy the highest quality local produce in beautiful rural surroundings, and they grow strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries, blueberries, blackberries, blackcurrants, sweetcorn, pumpkins and onions, which are all available to pick yourself (depending on the season you visit in)! Grab a basket and soak up the sunshine and country air, before heading to the farm shop for a well-deserved cuppa.
