As I write this review, I'm very sad to be leaving tomorrow. Me and my 2 children stayed here for a week- 3 year old and 2 year old. What a gem! I'm so glad I booked this. The cottage is absolutely stunning, very well equipped- you really don't need to bring anything apart from your food shopping! (Little things like foil, washing up liquid etc is all here!) the grounds are very well kept and eye catching. The play barn, WOW! 2 floors of it! My kids asked to go there everyday (you would think they were deprived of toys!), it has a variety of toys, upstairs is more for babies- soft play. Downstairs you have role play area and other toys. Both floors have a sofa where you can really sit back and relax whilst kids play. If you a coffee lover, there is a machine upstairs! Help yourself :). Outside there is a play area, again kids loved this and the freedom to just run around. There is also a trampoline. Animal feeding is great fun, even though my 2 year old was terrified of lambs by the last day he finally managed to hold the bottle and stroke the lamb! What an achievement! Farmer Simon- he really is such a great welcoming/ jolly character, fantastic with kids, really makes the stay that bit more especial - he remembers everyone's names!! We had a few days out, but I would of been happy just to relax in the farm. I enjoyed Instow beach, lovely sandy beach with the village in the background. I definately recommend this place! Can't wait to come back..
