Ten of the Best Family Farm Stays

14 June 2019

Pitching up on the farm is one of the best possible ways to get back to nature.   

There’s just something about surrounding yourself with fresh air, endless stretches of countryside, and peacefully grazing animals that takes all the worry out of life.

So what better setting for a refreshing family break?  

Promising the kids a chance to meet the animals (maybe even getting involved in caring for them, too) is a great opportunity to tear them away from their phones, while all that wide open land promises to fire up everybody’s natural sense of adventure!

If you need any more convincing, we’re certain our handpicked list of family farm stays will do it. So get ready to put yourselves out to pasture…you’ll be having fun until the cows come home.
