We have just got home from a 7 night holiday staying in cow-mumble and everything was perfect. Our 2 year old and 7 month old (and us!) could not have been happier or more entertained and the owners were so helpful. We fed the pigs, ducks, rabbits and guinea pigs every day, swam in the lovely pool and used the...

Great area to visit and the views from the farm are amazing. Great to see all the animals and out son was over the...

And rightly said by my happy eight year old! We had a lovely four day break over the New Year period after a hectic Christmas and it was just lovely to relax and spend time by ourselves surrounded by countryside and peace. The Moncks Green cottage we stayed in was spacious, well equiped and immaculate (with the most comfortable beds...

We stayed in Foxglove with our 3 and 5 year old. They loved it especially the walk in rabbit enclosure where they could feed them. The farm is in a great location that you can visit so many attractions. We visited pennywell Farm a must and Totnes. The boys were happy in the pool, playing on the farm and feeding...

We did not set out to find a holiday in Devon but an enormous amount of Googling drew a blank on child friendly holidays other than Center Parcs, Butlins or similar and Knowle Farm. A good look at the website and associated reviews and we booked. The location makes for a pretty easy joinery for most, motorway or dual carriageway...

Stayed last week with our little grandson and he absolutely LOVED it! The perfect place to keep an active toddler busy and safe all week! Plenty to do in surrounding area. Really friendly owners too - brilliant holiday:)

We have just returned from a week staying in Foxglove. We have a 15 month old toddler and he absolutely loved the animals and the soft play area! (OK the cockerel crowing made him jump a few times but still) We never really needed to speak to the owners but they always said hello and were very friendly. Some people...

We recently stayed in Foxglove Cottage at Knowle Farm and it was wonderful. I cannot recommend it enough for families with young children (ours are 3 and 2). The cottage itself was spacious and well equipped and the facilities at Knowle Farm perfect for little people. There were so many activities to keep our children busy, from the swimming pool...

We stayed at Knowle Farm over the Easter holidays with our 4 and 5 year olds. The farm is beautifully appointed and the cottage was ideal. Everything has been thought of. The indoor pool was fantastic and the kids adored the soft play. You can feed the animals or take a short woodland walk. Fun for the children and super...

We love this place - it was a perfect getaway for myself, my husband and our 18 month old. The accommodation (Clematis) was lovely - small, but full of character, and right next to the yard where the ducks and peacock hang out. It was also really clean - a real home from home. As well as exploring the local...
