Why Book a Holiday on a Farm

farm holidays

Staying on a farm can be appealing if you just want to spend some relaxing time in the peace and tranquillity of the 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, farmers and farm life will vary from one farmstead to another so do read about each and decide which is the best farm holiday for you. Do pack welly boots because farmyards can be muddy!
