4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

We stayed in Corner Cottage, really clean, spacious with everything you would need. We were 4 adults and 4 children and there was plenty of room. The farm had a lovely park area and the children really enjoyed the feeding of the animals in the morning.

We have just got back from a week staying in 'Heron' with our 2 and 5 year old boys and their grandparents. This is an absolutely brilliant place to stay. The cottage was very well equipped and had everything you need for a self catering stay, there were even lots of board games in the dining room so we could... More

This is the forth time we have stayed in Nettlecombe Farm and on every occasion we have come away wishing that we could stay longer. The location is just beautiful and the accomodation and facilities are perfect if you want to escape from it all. Jose has always gone out of her way to make sure we have everything we... More

We stayed in Forge cottage with our 5 year old and baby. It was our second time there and it was just as good as before. The cottage is well finished and furnished to a high standard and beautifully clean. The farm and play facilities are great for children and the morning feeding trips with John a real delight. Thanks... More

I stayed at Nettlecombe Farm ("Robin" cottage) with my wife and three daughters, aged 3, 19 and 21, for a week in June. The cottage had everything we needed, and was very clean and comfortable. The farm is on a hill near the village of Whitwell, so was windy at times, but the view from the kitchen window over the... More

I took my 2-year-old twins here as their birthday present. They are OBSESSED with cows and all animals so I figured - what could be better? I am so glad I did. It was such an ideal holiday. Full of excitement and joy from my kids and nice peaceful moments together as a family. Facilities are clean and cozy. Parks... More

We visited Nettlecombe a few weeks ago, outside of the school holidays. We had an absolutely amazing time. The cottage was well equipped, including two high quality cots for the kids and a high chair. Me and my daughter went on the morning 'feeding' round with John everyday. You get to feed all the animals and collect fresh eggs. John... More

My family of 4 spent a week staying in the Heron Cottage of Nettlecombe Farm. The farm is situated perfectly near the delightful little town of Whitwell, and surrounded by beautiful, green and rolling hills. A short walk across the farm and up a hill provides spectacular views of the farm and the surrounding area. Every morning our curtains were... More
