We had a wonderful week in Foxglove at the height of the February storms and flooding. The cottage was warm and very comfortable. There is so much to do on the farm for toddlers we did not feel restricted by the weather at all. Our 2 year old loved the soft play area, ride on toys and excellent pool. Rattery...

We have just spent a long weekend at Knowle Farm (2 adults, 3 year old, 11 month old). We stayed in Moncks Green, an upside down cottage located right next to the outdoor play area, across from the indoor soft play area and around the corner from the indoor pool. Despite the bad weather, there was lots to do. Our...

We just enjoyed 3 nights at Knowle Farm. Myself, my husband and 6 year old son stayed in Applecross, an upside down cottage with a beautiful view from the kitchen sink. The cottage was clean and had everything you needed and more. We would wait to hear the first quack and cockadoodledoo each morning (never before 9am so no early...

We have an 18 month old daughter and the entire set up was perfect! Plenty to do both on the farm and in the surrounding areas. I would highly recommend this, a fantastic experience! It is close enough to enjoy the venues of the English Rivera, Paignton Zoo, Woodlands, Threeandone, Living Coasts and Plymouth Marine. A perfect getaway if you...

Recently returned from a week booked in Applecross. We had a brilliant time. My two year old son taught himself to swim in the indoor pool the week we stayed and now loves swimming! Owners are friendly and extremely helpful. The farm has a very relaxed feel and there is plenty to do with a toddler in tow anytime of...

The setup and provisions at Knowle Farm are ideal for any young family and we could not have been happier. Our 2 year old, found every day exciting from the moment he woke up to see the ducks, chickens, pigs, alpacas, chicks, rabbits and peacock being fed, to the evening walk around the farm saying goodnight to them. His confidence...

This was our 3rd time at Knowle farm, although this time we took other family members including our soon to be 2 year old nephew. We stayed in Woodbine again, which was more than adequate to accommodate all 8 of us (3 of them children). Our nephew not suprisingly loved it (especially the newly built tractor/ride on area) and we...

We stayed at Knowle Farm for the October half term with 2 adults & 4 kids ranging from 7-17. We had a brilliant time. The cottage was immaculate, comfortable, warm and cosy with every mod con, central heating and a wood burning stove (needed in October). The bedrooms were big with comfortable beds and the amenities were fantastic. The kids...

Knowle farm provided a lovely setting for an amazing family holiday. Cow mumble was well equiped with good quality items that you would be happy to use (the booster seat was spotless). This cottage had great views over the farm although the 'race track' has just been installed outside the front door and this may be noisy or perfect depending...

“Applecross Cottage is set in the main farm courtyard and opens onto where the peacock and ducks roam around. Waking up to a peacock at your window and ducks at your doorstep is amazing.”
