Farm and Farmstay Holidays

Farm holidays are ever popular with families with young children. Rent a self catering country cottage on a farm and allow your children to discover the farmyard, animals in fields, the big red or blue tractor and what the countryside has to offer. 


 

farm holidays

Staying on a farm can also be appealing if you just want to spend some relaxing time in the beautiful British countryside. A cottage for 2 on a farm also appeals to couples looking for a rural weekend escape.

Children never tire of feeding animals and meeting the chickens, ducks, sheep, goats, cows, pigs and other farmyard characters. Children can help feed the animals with some farm holidays.

The level of interaction with the animals and farm life will vary from one farm to another so do read about each and decide which are the best farm holidays for your children. Do pack welly boots because farmyards can be muddy!

A holiday on an organic farm in the UK could result in lovely farm fresh produce for breakfast in your cottage. Sizzling organic British bacon and sausages - what a great start to your holiday in the country!  If you're seeking a rural retreat, take a look at these rural country cottages.

You may wish to combine a farm stay with a coastal location for optional days at the beach, in which case, a farm cottage holiday in the Isle of Wight would be perfect.   Explore farm cottages in the Cotswolds and other areas of outstanding natural beauty such as the Isle of Anglesey in north Wales where there are plenty of farm cottages available to rent for self-catering holidays.  See the below for farmstays throughout the UK.


If you are looking for a farm stay with that added extra why not take a look at the following different types of farm cottages:
