We went here for a week in the Easter holidays and stayed in the Partridge and Pheasant. We took 9 of us. Our family of 4 stayed in one of the 200 year old cottages. The overall experience was amazing as the location where the farm was based included many beaches, villages and attractions. The farm itself had their own beach so you didn't have to go far to get to one. To get to the beach you had to walk over a field of sheep. The sheep were not bothered by fellow beach goers. The farm was amazing not only for its views but the animals themselves. The owners were very friendly they greeted us with scrumptious cakes and also Jeremy did an animal feeding event every morning which included feeding the Alpacas, holding baby chicks and even being allowed to take an egg home. The farm also had an orchard which had play facilities for younger ones. I can't wait to go back!!
