We stayed at Lower Hearson Farm for the first time in April 2017 with our 9 year old daughter and our dog. It was a fantastic experience and we would highly recommend it.
My daughter absolutely loved getting involved with all the animals each day and holding a piglet at just a few hours old was a real highlight. She also had fun making friends with other kids who were staying at the farm at the same time as us, and spending time enjoying the lovely garden space and great facilities provided. This is very much a kid friendly place to stay, which made it a relaxing and enjoyable holiday for the adults too!
The facilties were great - everything you need and more. We would definitely book again.
This is part of an email that my daughter sent to Farmer Graeme after our stay:
'Thank you for an AMAZING time at your farm.
I loved loved loved loved the games room The swimming pool the slideand swings And the trampoline The Easter quizWalking/playing with Farley Feeding/holding the animalsMaking friends Selfies☺ with the animals!!!'
I've been meaning to review this amazing place for ages. We stayed with our 2 boys during the easter hols. Lovely clean accomodation which was well equipped (now has cake tins too!). Great facilities and a fabulous host called Graeme.
You'll want to get involved with the feeding of the animals daily. Our eldest loved the piglets and I think they liked him too, lol.
Playroom, outside play areas, a treasure hunt and home reared sausages to eat make this holiday a special one. Sausages and eggs also available to purchase directly from Graeme.
The pool is great addition to any holiday and although it was a little chilly because of the weather we managed a couple of swims.
You wouldn't regret booking a holiday here.

WOW WOW! Where do I start.....if you're reading this review then go ahead and book your holiday, you will not regret it.
I stayed at Lower Hearson Farm in the Threshing Barn cottage for the first week in May 16 with my hubby,3 1/2 yr old son and our springer spaniel Phoebe.
The cottage was spacious, exceptionally well equipped, spotlessly clean and most of all it felt like a home from home. There were even games in the cupboard for our son to play with.
The farm has beautiful tranquil gardens with swings, a slide, sandpit and trampoline, which Samuel throughly enjoyed. There is also a great covered heated outdoor pool.
There is a great play room full of books, DVDs, table tennis table, table football and lots of toys for smaller children.
My son Samuel had a throughly amazing time helping Farmer Graeme in the mornings and afternoons to feed the chickens, sheep and pigs. In fact hubby and I enjoyed it just as much as he did.
Graeme and Marilyn have created a truly magical place for children and adults, there isn't anything they haven't thought of to make your holiday perfect.
I can not thank Graeme and Marilyn enough for giving us so many happy and wonderful memories from an outstanding holiday, which we will all treasure for years to come.
I'm not one for going back to the same place for holidays but we WILL be returning next year.....that's if we don't become your neighbours first ha ha!
Thank you Lower Hearson Farm for the most amazing family holiday, Fin has loved every single minute and has not stopped talking about the chickens (specifically clucky!!) all the way home! We are very much looking forward to visiting next year (if not sooner!).
For anyone visiting this is an amazing holiday, the cottages are fantastic and Farmer Graeme (and his lovely animals) make the holiday really magical for everyone. Fantastic places to visit near by and very easy to cater for family's with lots of supermarkets nearby.
Thank you again and see you soon!!!!

I've been meaning to post a review for ages. We visited for a week and had a great time. Cottage was well equipped and very clean. There were toys and games in the cupboard for our little girl. She loved helping to feed the animals aside when she fell over in the mud! The treasure hunt graeme organised was really enjoyable. A couple of things that could be improved is the kids play area (was looking a bit worn and I'm sure some new wooden play equipment would be well received by guests) and the electricity meter - it's a bit annoying to keep finding pound coins for it. Personally I'd prefer they up the rental cost slightly to cover this as per the other cottages. Location was great, close to some stunning beaches and great days out. Would highly recommend the milky way park and saunton sands.
