MYself wife and three small sons spent a midweek brak at Knaveswell farm last September childrens ages four and a half, 2 and a half and six months and walking.
We had the very best time and cant recomend this sort of holidasy highly enough. Our children loved every minute including bathing in a bucket in front of the wood burner. the peace and quiet of it all is great and really slows down your pace of life for a few days. If you can convince other freinds with families to go to the same featerdown farm with you for camp fire and wood oven evening its even better setling down with a hunk of local cheddar and some local cider. my only advice would be to take a mosquito net if you are worried about the odd spider. apart from that it was fault less. The kids loved feeding the animals and watching the cows milked with local sights to see and beaches to visit its just great.
check out the featherdown farm days web site for a glimse of whats on offer, may look a little pricey but honestly worth every penny
go on give it a try.
