Farm holidays – are they for you?

Staying on a working farm can give town and city children the chance to experience country life, and to take part in activities such as feeding baby lambs and collecting eggs. If you really want to experience farm life then you should choose a working farm. Ask what animals there are and what the arrangements are for visiting them, so you know what to expect.

There are plenty of  interesting things to do: in some cases castles to visit, adventure parks, a dinosaur park, butterfly farm, chocolate farm (very popular), bee farm – where you can actually see honey being made – behind glass of course, goldmines and an iron age settlement, and steam trains all nearby.

Children like to make new friends and in self catering holiday houses they can do that very easily. Occasionally parents and children make friends with another family and they go to the same farm several years running to enjoy their holidays together.

Look at the accommodation provided and see how baby and child-friendly it is. Click on the following link   on self-catering holidays for more information.
