The Away with the Kids review
Mill Farm House is a former home of a famous highwayman. Set down a quiet country lane in the village of Poulshot there are two local pubs within a fifteen minutes walk across footpaths or you can catch a lift on the gater ride. The nearby village of Poulshot is three miles from the local town of Devizes. With 100 heifers, 200 baby calves, wild geese, and Moto the donkey, it’s always someone’s dinnertime! Families staying at Mill Farm House are welcome to visit the animals and chickens in the meadow, collect eggs, and experience a tour of the farm to feed the cows. This family-run operation is buzzing with life, yet still peacefully located in the heart of rural Wiltshire.
