With a strong ethos of welcoming young families into the fold Court Farm's completely child-centric focus will appeal to any parent who wants their child to experience life on a (civilised) farm, first hand. Feed time is hilarious with Farmer Kevin dishing out the spoils for kids to share with the animals. You'll have uber confident little farmers rounding up the animals in no time!
The owners are parents themselves and have used their experience to focus on the needs of both the toddler and parent. Every cottage is toddler friendly with a built in stair-gate as a standard fitting and further mobile stairgates & fireguards can be provided as can quality cots, bed guards, highchairs and booster seats at no extra cost. Also proving popular is the hire of 3 wheeler pushchairs and baby backpacks - leaving you extra space in your car.
Choose from four cosy period cottages, sleeping 4+ cots, full of character and charm, with wood-burning stoves and your own enclosed garden (3 accept pets) or six barns (incl two access friendly single storey barns), sleeping 2-7+ cots, set around a sociable enclosed courtyard, overlooking the facilities onto beautiful countryside & the coast beyond; two spacious & contemporary styled houses, plus one bungalow, sleeping up to 6 +cots (1 accepts pets) with their own gardens and hot-tubs for a luxurious treat.
