Visited September 21, our second visit. We stayed in Squirrel Nutkin, have previously done Tom Kitten. Squirrel was perfect for us but we also want to bring the grandparents so we can have Jeremy Fisher. We keep coming back because we love it here & everything about the place. This time we had massages by Emily which were excellent. Thanks very much - and see you next year.

So lovely to see you again and great that you are trying out all the cottages ;).... which means we hopefully see you for many years to come! We will pass on your feedback to Emily too. Our therapists are both wonderful and we are very lucky to have them. Providing our grown ups with the opportunity for a little bit of relaxation is one of our aims so we are very pleased you thought them excellent. Thank you for taking the time to leave your lovely comments.

Have just returned from the most amazing family holiday here. What a great place from the accommodation, to the activities available, to the lovely Cheryl, Roger & Emily. We were a party of 6 adults & 2 children aged 2 & 3 and all enjoyed it immensely. We stopped in 'Jeremy Fisher' which was perfect for us. The accommodation was absolutely immaculate & finished to such a high standard. The hot tub is a great touch & is maintained each day by Roger. The animal feeding every morning & teatime was a massive hit & was great to see the children get involved. There are a couple of children's play areas, different trails provided including stickman, the Hungary caterpillar & Elmer the elephant & 'Farmer Reg's'mechanical repair shed' which my 2 year old absolutely loved & spent quite a lot of time in there!! Covid measures are in place but are in no way intrusive. We visited coombe Martin dinosaur & wildlife park & the Devon railway centre whilst we were stopping here which are both about 30 minutes away. I would totally recommend North hayne farm & hope to stop again in the future. Thanks again Cheryl, Roger & Emily for a fantastic stay xx

How lovely to receive your review today. We are so pleased you all had such a great time and found so much to do both locally and on the farm. Our new Farmer Reg's mechanical repair centre has been a huge success with lots of age groups and the trails are always popular too-we try and add new ones every year so more to try next time you are with us hopefully? We will pass on your lovely comments to the whole team, Housekeeping work hard at ensuring the accommodation is presented to a high standard so we are grateful for your comments. The hot tub too, is checked twice a day and is maintained very carefully so we are glad you enjoyed it. Thank you once again for taking the time to share your views. We look forward to seeing you all again very soon.

For our 2.5 year old toddler, newborn & grandparents it was fantastic. Nothing that hasn’t been said before. Lovely set up - open doors to massive garden, play area, swings, football, trails, mechanic shed. Morning and evening feeds a massive highlight. Lovely area. Perfectly close to local attractions and the beach. I would recommend Westward Ho as stunning, miles long sandy beach with very gentle incline. Kind staff. Nice spacious rooms. Clean. Have suggested it to friends and family. Only problem would be it’s popularity and need to book up well in advance!

Thanks Matthew, a really lovely and much appreciated review which we will pass on to all the team. It was great to see you and we are so pleased that you all had such a good time. As part of our sustainability ethos our new children's 'Repair Centre' has been a fabulous addition to the outdoor activities available and we hope it continues to inspire mechanics, engineers and creators of the future. Westward Ho! is indeed a very popular beach, we are lucky to have a coastline with over 22 amazing beaches so hopefully many more to explore if you ever wanted to. We look forward to seeing you and the family again .

We stayed at the farm in July and we were two families of five. We had the best time. Super relaxing and super fun. Roger, Cheryl and the team were fantastic, so kind and knowledgeable. The animals were so well looked after and the farm was SO clean. The kids loved the freedom of the fields (all enclosed) and the animals and the hot tub (which was meticulously checked daily). Close to beaches and days out but great if you want to stay on the farm too. The kids joined the additional activities such as farm hand and forest school. Highly recommend, and would defo return.

Thank you so much for your lovely review. We were so pleased to read it and read that you had such a great time. I will let the team know! The work behind the scenes to keep the site maintained is extensive but is worth it it does mean a very clean farm and very safe hot tubs!! We are so pleased that the children enjoyed the Farm Hands club and the Forest School Free Rangers sessions, they are usually popular and another great way of enjoying the outdoor life on those days that you dont want to go out. We will very much look forward to seeing you all again soon. Thank you again.

Our first visit was many years ago when North Hayne Farm was just starting out. We arrived to celebrate Christmas. It was the best holiday, our young children loved being involved with feeding the animals and especially enjoyed the donkey rides. We returned many times thereafter again for Christmas, enjoying Easter weeks, and not forgetting a week to bring in the New Year. Now our children are both adults and making their own way in life. However, it is the perfect place for adults to enjoy a romantic holiday, enjoying peaceful dark nights in the hot tub. 51 years old and I could not wait to feed the lamb its bottle. Roger, Cheryl and their team have worked so hard from day one and continue to do so, ensuring that you will have the best holiday, full of fantastic memories. Even with all the additional measures required today with COVID-19 Roger and Cheryl have provided everything to keep us all safe. It is one of those places you cannot wait to tell everyone about. Thank you Roger and Cheryl for our much needed break last week. It was just what we needed.

Thank you so much Louise for taking the time to leave your comments. It was really wonderful to see you both and we felt proud that you chose to return without the children for a romantic break! To watch our 'families' grow up, is a privilege but to keep in contact with the parents is rather special ,so thank you for coming . We are delighted you had such a good time. We always joke that the farm is "not just for the children" so to see you at lamb bottle feeding times was great. Whilst we would love to see the children again next time you come, you are both welcome on your own anytime you need to 'recharge'. Thank you again and see you soon.
