We booked this for four adults and two children, and the cottage we hired was just right. The farm has a few animals, a great pool and hottub, and a lovely big playbarn with things for all generations.... There is also a small three hole pitch and put, and again you don't have to bring any equipment!

The farm is remote, so be warned you will have to drive down a few narrow country lanes, so be prepared to reverse on occasions. However once there you can rest assured that you will have a peaceful stay.

The staff are very helpful, and you can buy some emergency rations from their useful honesty shop.

The whole family enjoyed their stay and we could all have stayed a few days longer....

Room Tip: The Granary is a lovely cottage

Not wanting to break the form of the reviews of Flear Farm, we stayed here for a week and had a great time. With small children you want a spot which is safe and secure as well as entertaining and FF ticks those boxes and more. As well as that it’s a brilliantly convenient place to base yourself for the lovely part of Devon which it’s nestled in. As ever beaches, and the ‘twee’ towns of Dartmouth, Salcombe are only ever a few miles away. For small persons the farm has in and outdoor play areas, as well as a pool and also some lovely spots such as the pond, stream and bridges which makes for a truly relaxing environment. We stayed in the ‘Managers’ which, was airy and spacious and well equipped, without sounding a bit pretentious, it’s nice to stay in a cottage which is well equipped and sized (like home from home). Well done to the family and team for making you feel welcome and homely. We enjoyed it so much we booked again...! For those visiting town folk who cast dispersions on the country lanes, just chill out, the locals and farmers are probably used to it, just try and get over it!

What a place. I still class myself as a new parent. We have a one year old (turned one during our stay) and finding somewhere which is absolutely perfect for a baby /child is daunting when your not used to holidays with a youngster. When looking for a place, online it seemed perfect but I didn’t expect the level of perfection we found. Absolutely spotless and amazing facilities. Our daughter loved it as did our 10 year old twin nieces, 2 year old niece and 4 month old nephew.
We travelled with 7 adults, 4 children, 2 dogs and stayed in Ducks Quarry (2 cottages combined) the sofas were soooo comfy as were the beds. Such cozy clean cottages. Barney and Camilla as with the rest of the staff so friendly and helpful and even warmed our babies dinner for us after we checked out and before we set off on our way home.
The animals on site are just great for kids to look at and the whole approach, from the honesty shop, to the pool, the the tennis courts and general estate was so relaxed and thoroughly enjoyable.
We’re travelling back as I type and I miss our cottage already. Would love to return and can’t recommended this place highly enough. Jut AMAZING. This is only the first weeks holiday in the uk we’ve had with our “new” daughter and was a complete joy. Thank you all from Lou, Chris, Wren and Flo x

We stayed at Flear Farm for the first time in July - 4 of us, 2 adults and 2 children (9 and 3 years old) in The Stalls. What an amazing place - really well equipped house which was incredibly comfortable. The beds were great, the living area comfy and we had everything we needed. We enjoyed sitting out the front in the evening drinking a glass of wine and listening to the resident peacock calling. The pool was the jewel in the crown, heated to a “just right” temperature and the kids wanted to be in it every minute of the day. I enjoyed the hot tub too :) The kids also loved the brilliant play barn which was so well equipped we would consider coming here out of season too when the weather is less favourable. They loved having other kids to play with which is one of the great benefits of Flear Farm which has several properties and is so geared up to children.

We enjoyed wandering around the property which I’m sure we didn’t see all of as we were also busy exploring the fantastic local beaches and crabbing at Dartmouth and Stoke Gabriel. So much to do nearby.

We will definitely be back to Flear Farm!

Thank you so much for your lovely review. We put so much into our place here, and it really is very rewarding to have our families come and have a special time that hopefully sets them back up for the daily routine at home relaxed and happy! Have a wonderful summer all, apparently it's endless...

Absolutely lovely place. Completely geared for children. Really big pool. Play barn well equipped. Perhaps a few more soft mats for the todlers. Not a moan just an idea. Cannot recommend this farm enough. Large outdoor play area. Also go for a walk through woods and find stream and play poo sticks. Enjoy we certainly did
