This was our first featherdown experience but will definately not be our last. We travelled down from Yorkshire especially to stay at Midgham Farm as our daughter is horse mad! Yes, it was a long way but worth it.
Sammy was an excellent host, dealing with all the guests personally as they arrived. She had also rung before we left home to go through a few things which we felt was a really nice touch. There was another little girl about the same age as ours who had been put in the tent next door which was great as they hooked up together soon after arriving.
The farm tour was great fun and not something we had expected but showed us all the highlights and gave us our bearings too. The night the pizza oven was lit was great as it brought everyone out to have a chat whilst the pizza cooked.
Our daughter loved the fact she could pet the rabbits, collect eggs, feed the lambs, muck out the stables! feed the horses. The two new foals were just an added bonus. Sammy made her feel very special and a big help (not always easy with 8 year olds!)
The highlight to me was to watch her wander down the lane leading a miniature pony into a new field.
Plenty of places to visit - Moors Valley is great fun with lots to do, Seaside not too far, New Forest beautiful and Monkey World (near Poole) brilliant.
Can't think of a single down side to the experience. Well done and thank you Sammy, I am sure we will be back again in the future.
Mark, Rita and Gracie.
