We stayed at the farm with our children. Although animal feeding was a highlight for them, it was hardly worth the extortionate rates charged to stay in accomodation which frankly was mediocre. The shower was barely a dribble and the bed clothes smelt. We were bitten by bed bugs too! We did not expect luxury but the website makes the farm look as though it is a mecca for children and a luxurious heaven for parents. In fact it is quite dangerous being a working farm with lots of agricultural machinery driving far too quickly about the place. The indoor swimming pool was a nice touch but rented out to the (unfriendly) locals so not exclusively for the guests use.The light in the swimming pool changing room often did not work (and trust me it was needed as if I had attempted to wash my hair in the cottage, I would still be there now!). Again, the play barn is nice for the kids but nothing special and many of the little darlings would trample their manure sodden wellies through the soft play area (hence another need for a decent shower and maybe even some hand wash?!!) Next time, we will save the £2500 and stay at home! We can take them to a petting farm and our little ones will at least get to wash their hands after touching goats and sheep! I thought that farms these days had to insist that children do wash their hands after touching animals? Not so at Tredethick.... not a sink or alcohol rub in sight!!
