The perfect holiday for families with young children
Cornwall Map
Tredethick is the perfect holiday retreat for families with young children.

It provides fun experiences, in beautiful scenery, whatever the weather. It’s a place to see and hear your young children come alive and for you to relax and recharge.

Each morning on the farm children can bottle-feed lambs, feed the goats, pigs and chickens and collect freshly laid eggs. There’s an opportunity to ride a gentle pony too. Our child-friendly indoor pool is a toasty 30 degrees and the secluded hot tub garden can be fun for the whole family or a quiet retreat for parents.

Children love the soft playroom with its play frames, shapes and ball pool. Grown-ups love the daily papers, current magazines, fresh Lavazza coffee, comfy chairs and views onto sweeping farmland.

The giant sandpit, puzzles, Ping-Pong and pool in the play barn provide plenty more opportunities for play.

There’s lots of scope for outdoor fun too, with the play-park, giant trampoline, ride-on tractors, balance bikes and scooters.

Tredethick is a place where with young children you can relax, recharge, enjoy and long to return.

The purpose built indoor toddler soft play area plus new outdoor toddler race track with ride-on toys, tractor tyre tunnel and play house are a real hit.

Our pigs ‘Rasha’ and ‘Streakie’ are really popular with the children along with our miniature donkeys who love to be stroked.

Our farm’s very name suggests an idyll of peace, and you’ll love its higgledy-piggledy charm. Upper Shadymoor Feather Down Farm is the perfect place for child friendly glamping holidays; situated between the towns of Shrewsbury and Ludlow, its irregular contours follow those of the original deer park laid out in 1284 by Robert of Stapleton.

We could well be Feather Down’s most ‘sporting’ farm – in the relaxed sense of the word of course! As well as pheasant, you’re guaranteed to see any one of our 70 fallow or red deer, making the farm an ideal safari spot. On the Farm Tour you’ll also encounter beef cattle, horses and Kerry Hill sheep.

*Upper Shadymoor is a natural water park, with a brook and 16 pools on our 200 acres. As well as wild swimming and messing about in boats, our water trampoline can be enjoyed under parental supervision – from the nearby hot tub if necessary! You can also fish trout here, and rods and the fly-casting expertise of our son Gregory are both available. (*Charges apply)

And if your holiday involves eating well, you’ll love our game-filled Farm Larder, which stocks our own venison, pigeon, pheasant, duck, rabbit, and Kevan’s ready-cooked meals. There’s also the renowned local gastronomic scene that includes Ludlow’s two Michelin-starred restaurants and gastropubs galore.

Dorset Map
With the sandy beaches at Studland and Swanage, the instantly recognisable Durdle Door, and the atmospheric ruins of Corfe Castle right on our doorstep, we make a great base for exploring and the perfect spot for child friendly glamping holidays in Dorset.

The farm nestles under the Purbeck Hills within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and a walk through the farm fields and a climb up Nine Barrow Down lead to a spectacular view of Poole Harbour, the coast at Bournemouth, and on a clear day, the Isle of Wight.

Back down by the woods and the streams you’re more than welcome to watch our dairy herd being milked. We’re sure you’ll want to linger on our 156-acre dairy farm, as the woodland we are backed on to is perfect for adventurous play.

You’re welcome to watch our herd being milked and their calves being fed, as we love to pass on our knowledge of dairy farming. We run the farm with a little help from one of our daughters, Issy, who looks after our miniature ponies, a mother and daughter duo called Issy and Lana who are available for grooming sessions. They can’t wait to greet you.

Cornwall Map
Rated as the number one farm for hospitality since Feather Down arrived on these shores, we put thought into your every need before you even arrive at Boswarthen, providing everything from staggered ‘countdown’ checklists in the lead-up to your holiday, to arrival night meals and lists of everything stocked in our Farm Larder. So when a guest described their holiday with us as “off the charts it was so good,” we felt the care we take was truly being recognised.

The invigorating sauna and hot tub of our Field Spa attract many group bookings as well as families to this stunning part of Cornwall and with beaches nearby and a microclimate that allows palm trees to grow, nature has truly looked kindly on this part of the world. The active can surf, swim, bike and walk to their heart’s delight, before stocking up on Cornwall’s seafood, cream teas and pasties.

Back at the farm, indulge in Maddy’s delicious dinners, including her Cornish lasagne around the campfire, which one guest said was so good it should be mentioned in the guidebooks! For the prefect family friendly glamping holidays in Penzance, Cornwall look no further than Boswarthen Feather Down Farm!

Whitwell, Nr Ventnor, Isle of Wight PO38 2AF
Map
Nettlecombe Farm has been in the Morris family for over a century, and you'll still meet us around the farm today. In the heart of the rolling Isle of Wight countryside, our farm is at the top of a quiet lane half a mile from the sleepy village of Whitwell. Surrounded by green fields and lakes, our luxurious self-catering holiday accommodation is not only safe and comfortable for visitors of all ages and abilities, it's also the perfect base to explore the farm with its friendly animals - or the Islands wider countryside and scenic coastline.

Visitors are welcome to explore the farm and meet the animals, and there's plenty of fun to be had at any time of the year. In the Rickyard there is a wide variety of livestock to make friends with - usually chickens, geese, turkeys, pigs, goats, rabbits and even our reindeer ‘Comet & Dancer’. In springtime orphan lambs sometimes need feeding with milk, which can be messy but is always popular! When the kids need to let off steam there is a range of grassed play areas, toddlers play equipment, a big Wendy house, our fabulous wooden tractor and a rustic climbing play facility. For the older children there is a sports area ideal for all sorts of games and football. Our three fully-stocked fishing lakes and of course the farm and nearby countryside is full of places to explore, walk and cycle, and Nettlecombe is a dog-friendly farm too. You might be tempted to enjoy some relaxing yoga at one of our sessions in the modern function barn.

Our beautiful rural setting is quiet and secluded, but it's easy to use the farm as a base to explore the beautiful island that is our home. Explore Queen Victoria's country retreat at Osborne House, see where King Charles I was imprisoned at Carisbrooke Castle, or just marvel at the spectacular Needles. Beaches are especially easy to reach from Nettlecombe Farm, from the dramatic shoreline at Compton to the miles of golden sands and seaside amusements at Sandown and Shanklin.

We think you will love this part of the Isle of Wight as much as we do. The passing of the seasons and the changing landscape make Nettlecombe Farm worth visiting at any time of year and we are happy to offer short breaks for out of season guests visiting between October & May.

Set in 240 acres of picturesque parkland and on the borders of Windsor Great Park, Coworth Park is Dorchester Collection’s new 5 star, 70 room country house hotel and spa, which blends the warmth and comfort of a contemporary country house with an eccentric spirit that is undeniably English and irrefutably modern.

Coworth Park’s intimate, rural location makes it an ideal destination for families. Bring the kids and they can look forward to a relaxed atmosphere and spacious grounds where they can roam and play in complete safety. There’s a crèche for the youngsters, a library of films and computer games for older kids, outdoor activities like treasure hunts, mountain biking, horse riding, football, basketball, tennis and croquet, while supervised children can also enjoy our indoor pool.
