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 were able to apportion our time between the tennis courts, swimming pool, games room, feeding the animals and going for wellie walks in the grounds. There is so much to do on Knowle farm, it is easier and far more relaxing to stay there than to go out and about. Hopefully, we will return again, but our own children are slowly getting older... By the way, we recommend the Church House Inn in Rattery. They are SO child friendly and welcoming - it would be rude not to pop in! Oh and on our son's 8th birthday, we took our boys to Dynamic Adventures in Dartington - absolutely brilliant for older children. Adults also must try the zip wire!!! Remember to say you are staying at Knowle Farm and you get a discount. Enjoy!
