Took our wonderful residents on holiday here in September. The accommodation was superb, so clean and very tastefully furnished. The animals (which we could help feed each morning) were delightful: a reindeer, chickens, goats to name a few. The staff were very helpful when needed. The area was tranquil and the views were beautiful. Can't praise it enough.

We stayed here with friends for a week and stayed in Corner Cottage. There were 4 adults and 3 children under 5. The accommodation itself is very nice and the kitchen is well equipped. We enjoyed the animal feeding with farmer John. The farm has a wide array of animals and the children get to feed them which is a... More

This was the first time we had all been away together and it was everything I had hoped for. Swallow provided good accommodation for our family: six adults and five children aged under 11, - one in cot. Glorious unspoilt views. Centrally located for Island's attractions but the best thing according to the children was being so close to the... More

If you are looking for a retreat to get away from it all but at the same time family friendly and somewhere to keep the children occupied without a clubhouse or swimming pool in sight then this is the place for you! Accommodation, cleanliness, environment, play areas and animals all absolutely spot on and we have promised the children we... More

Fabulous holiday especially for children with the opportunity to see and even feed many species of animal. Wonderfully clean and well equipped accommodation off the beaten tracks with lovely walks and well stocked fishing lakes.

We stayed in Heron, which was very comfortable and clean and had everything we needed for self-catering. We had a great holiday. The surrounding countryside was beautiful, and there were pubs, shops and beaches not far away. We were 4 adults and a 2-year-old, who enjoyed the animal feeding each weekday morning (John was very nice with the children and... More

Safe and interesting place for the kids to run free for hours. Plenty for them to do and return to the cottages when they were ready for a pit stop. Morning animal feeding tours were great and the kids loved joining in. House decor a little rustic / tired, but plenty of space and all necessary conveniences. Kids loved it... More

We stayed in 'Robin' for a rainy week in August. Our two boys (ages 6 and 8) really enjoyed being able to pop out the back door to see the animals and use the climbing frame and football pitch, it was like having our own massive and very entertaining back garden! The daily animal feeding tour with Farmer John was... More
