We stayed in Foxglove with our 3 and 5 year old. They loved it especially the walk in rabbit enclosure where they could feed them. The farm is in a great location that you can visit so many attractions. We visited pennywell Farm a must and Totnes. The boys were happy in the pool, playing on the farm and feeding...

We did not set out to find a holiday in Devon but an enormous amount of Googling drew a blank on child friendly holidays other than Center Parcs, Butlins or similar and Knowle Farm. A good look at the website and associated reviews and we booked. The location makes for a pretty easy joinery for most, motorway or dual carriageway...

Stayed last week with our little grandson and he absolutely LOVED it! The perfect place to keep an active toddler busy and safe all week! Plenty to do in surrounding area. Really friendly owners too - brilliant holiday:)

We have just returned from a week staying in Foxglove. We have a 15 month old toddler and he absolutely loved the animals and the soft play area! (OK the cockerel crowing made him jump a few times but still) We never really needed to speak to the owners but they always said hello and were very friendly. Some people...

We recently stayed in Foxglove Cottage at Knowle Farm and it was wonderful. I cannot recommend it enough for families with young children (ours are 3 and 2). The cottage itself was spacious and well equipped and the facilities at Knowle Farm perfect for little people. There were so many activities to keep our children busy, from the swimming pool...

We stayed at Knowle Farm over the Easter holidays with our 4 and 5 year olds. The farm is beautifully appointed and the cottage was ideal. Everything has been thought of. The indoor pool was fantastic and the kids adored the soft play. You can feed the animals or take a short woodland walk. Fun for the children and super...

We love this place - it was a perfect getaway for myself, my husband and our 18 month old. The accommodation (Clematis) was lovely - small, but full of character, and right next to the yard where the ducks and peacock hang out. It was also really clean - a real home from home. As well as exploring the local...

We have just returned from a 3 night stay here and absolutely loved it. We stayed in 2 adjoining cottages as there was 8 of us and it was the perfect set up. We had 2 toddlers (2-3 years) and they were in heaven with all the animals, soft play and swimming pool. The owners were friendly and the children...

We were very excited about our first holiday of the year, particularly as it was also a Christmas present for my parents. However, we were all quite disappointed with our time at Knowle Farm. Our son was taken ill on the way to the farm, so a emergency stop off at Exeter A and E meant we didn't arrive until...

Just got back from an enjoyable week, especially for the kids. We stayed at Cow-mumbles cottage (lovely views across the valley) and can thoroughly recommend Knowle Farm. My daughter loved the animals & swimming pool and didnt want to leave. Pub 5 mins away serves good food & very friendly. Location convenient & lots to do in the immediate area.
