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.

Shropshire Map
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.

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!

Portmeirion Village

Gwynedd
The village of Portmeirion stands on a rugged clifftop on its own private peninsula overlooking Cardigan Bay on the coast of Snowdonia. It is surrounded by acres of sub-tropical woodlands and miles of sandy beaches.

Portmeirion was built from 1925 to 1976 by visionary Welsh architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, who wanted to prove that development need not mean defilement. All the cottages in the village are let as rooms and suites as part of the Hotel Portmeirion or as self-catering cottages sleeping up to 8 people. The village has several cafes and eight different shops.

Many know Portmeirion as the location for Patrick McGoohan's classic "The Prisoner" television series. It is also known for the Portmeirion Pottery, designed by Clough's daughter Susan Williams-Ellis. A new contemporary styled brasserie opened at Castell Deudraeth in 2001.

Portmeirion is signposted from the A487 at Minffordd midway between Penrhyndeudraeth and Porthmadog.
