We came back from a midweek stay at Knaveswell yesterday and had the best time ever. So much so that the children have already started a jar to save for another trip. We took our children - 9yrs, 7 yrs and 21 months and both sets of Grandparents plus auntie and uncle came too, making us 3 tents in total. The location is superb (next time we are planning a week's trip as we still had so much we want to see in the local area - the model village and Lulworth cove are great if you have children), Paul and Jo are lovely, very welcoming and helpful and our older two boys had a great time grooming the shetland ponies with Issy. None of us wanted to leave - even the boys said they wanted to stay forever, and from two lads who love games consoles and TV, that is high praise indeed. Our youngest ran around the whole time, watching the chickens, playing in the sandpit and just generally getting grubby and loved it when we bathed him in a big plastic tub by candle light in front of the wood burning stove, in fact if there'd been room I would have joined him!. The children got to feed the lambs, calves, pigs and chickens and our middle son was thrilled when his patience waiting by the chicken coop paid off and he was rewarded with a freshly laid egg for his tea.The tents are fab, the beds are soooooooooooo comfy, everything was really well thought out. Relaxing, great value for money, just superb, in fact so wonderful that I almost didn't write this review as part of me wants to keep it all a secret !
