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.

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!

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.

Devon Map

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. The race track surrounds a large walk-in rabbit enclosure where children can stroke and feed the rabbits. Our pigs ‘Rasha’ and ‘Streakie’ are really popular with the children along with our miniature donkeys who love to be stroked. Don’t forget our alpacas, sheep, Pete the Dartmoor pony and his friend ‘Apache’ the skewbald donkey – they all love to say hello. Open your cottage door the chickens and ducks will be waiting, hoping to be fed.

There are six beautifully converted barns and the cottage range includes one, two, three and four bedrooms sleeping from two to eight plus cots. We hold a Gold Award for exceptional quality of accommodation, have a Four Star rating and also a Gold Award from the Green Tourism Business Scheme.

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.
