We had a wonderful time at Knowle Farm and went away with good memories and photos to look back on. Our toddler (1 and a half year old) loved it so much that she woke up with a smile on her face. She enjoyed playing in the soft play area, especially getting into the police car! We enjoyed playing table...

We stayed at Knowle Farm in March 2014 and were generally very impressed with the cleanliness and high standard of the cottage (Applecross). The cottage was well equipped. The kitchen had enough utensils to be able to cook. The fixtures and furnishings in the cottage were generally to a high standard. We found the bed very comfortable, and the bedding...

We recently stayed in moncks green with our young family. We were incredibly impressed with the cleanliness of the cottage. It really was immaculate. The welcome tray was much appreciated and we were greeted warmly and shown to our cottage. The welcome information was detailed but reasonable. The animals were friendly and made our little girl's week. The swimming pool...

We had a wonderful week in Foxglove at the height of the February storms and flooding. The cottage was warm and very comfortable. There is so much to do on the farm for toddlers we did not feel restricted by the weather at all. Our 2 year old loved the soft play area, ride on toys and excellent pool. Rattery...

We have just spent a long weekend at Knowle Farm (2 adults, 3 year old, 11 month old). We stayed in Moncks Green, an upside down cottage located right next to the outdoor play area, across from the indoor soft play area and around the corner from the indoor pool. Despite the bad weather, there was lots to do. Our...

We just enjoyed 3 nights at Knowle Farm. Myself, my husband and 6 year old son stayed in Applecross, an upside down cottage with a beautiful view from the kitchen sink. The cottage was clean and had everything you needed and more. We would wait to hear the first quack and cockadoodledoo each morning (never before 9am so no early...

We have an 18 month old daughter and the entire set up was perfect! Plenty to do both on the farm and in the surrounding areas. I would highly recommend this, a fantastic experience! It is close enough to enjoy the venues of the English Rivera, Paignton Zoo, Woodlands, Threeandone, Living Coasts and Plymouth Marine. A perfect getaway if you...

Recently returned from a week booked in Applecross. We had a brilliant time. My two year old son taught himself to swim in the indoor pool the week we stayed and now loves swimming! Owners are friendly and extremely helpful. The farm has a very relaxed feel and there is plenty to do with a toddler in tow anytime of...

The setup and provisions at Knowle Farm are ideal for any young family and we could not have been happier. Our 2 year old, found every day exciting from the moment he woke up to see the ducks, chickens, pigs, alpacas, chicks, rabbits and peacock being fed, to the evening walk around the farm saying goodnight to them. His confidence...

This was our 3rd time at Knowle farm, although this time we took other family members including our soon to be 2 year old nephew. We stayed in Woodbine again, which was more than adequate to accommodate all 8 of us (3 of them children). Our nephew not suprisingly loved it (especially the newly built tractor/ride on area) and we...
