Small children love to see animals, pet them and feed them. They are keen to find out all about life on a farm; what the farmer does, the scarecrow, and little boys take an avid interest in tractors, combine harvesters and farm machinery.
Stay in a holiday cottage on a farm, caravan or tent and experience the life of a farm first-hand.
Enjoy the experience of being woken by a cockerel, of feeding the hens, collecting eggs and similar activities.
The things that you can get involved in as a family on a farm will vary, at some you may only be allowed to view proceedings and animals, others may have organised activity sessions.
Many farm holidays are in stunning rural locations so that you can get out and about in the countryside, go for walks, find out about nature in the fields and woodland. Some have farm trails and nature walks.
Playgrounds for children are often available, it's a case of checking details of each individual farm holiday and what they offer for children.
Holiday cottages are rented on a self-catering basis which is both good value and flexible accommodation for families.
