We were lucky to visit in the first week that the newly revamped farm and feeding area opened which is an absolute credit to Farmer Roger. Morning and evening kids have an animal feeding routine which involves feeding rabbits, chickens, goats, ducks, alpacas and sheep with daily lamb feeding and donkey rides and an additional activity of the day. The... More

Our third visit to North Hayne Farm Cottages was in Jun 2015 Three visits to the same place says it all. This year we stayed in Jemima Puddle Duck. Previously we have stayed in Peter Rabbit and Squirrel Nutkin, all really nice cottages, spotless and everything “just works”, truly first class accommodation. Every visit our children had a fantastic time,... More

We chose to stay at North Hayne because it offered lots of activities for our toddler but we were delighted to find this didn't mean the adults were forgotten! Our 2 year old loved the feeding sessions with the animals, and it is great the children are able to be so hands-on. He was never short of things to do,... More

Cheryl, Farmer Roger, Farmer Reg and Jenny looked after us so well and are so friendly. When we arrived it felt like we were being greeted by old friends! We have a... More

We had another great stay at North Hayne Farm! Our daughters loved feeding the animals, especially bottle feeding the lambs in the evening. It was lovely to watch our youngest (15 months) develop confidence with the animals, as the week went on. Not being pregnant this time, meant that I could really benefit from the hot tub this time round.... More

What a great review, thank you! It was lovely to see you all again and know that you managed some fabulous 'hot tub time' this year! It was also rewarding for us to see how much confidence the children developed over just a few days. The twice daily feeding routine provides a wonderful framework to help achieve this and we...

We found this amazing place by chance in the back of a magazine. This has been the best family holiday we have had and loved it that much we have already booked to go back later in the year and want to go back next spring to see the lambs again. Roger, Cheryl, Jenny, Reg and Emily make this a... More

Our second holiday at North Hayne farm and that speaks volumes, I've never (until now) been to the same place twice! Faultless holiday all down to the warm welcome of Roger, Cheryl, Reg and Jenny and the wonderful surroundings of the devonshire countryside enjoyed from the fully equipped luxury cottage! The kids love the animals and the play barn and... More
