05. testimonials

David M, July 2021"SUPERB family holiday venue. We can't recommend Beech Farm highly enough having enjoyed an amazing week there celebrating our Ruby Wedding with our adult children, their partners, our two grandchildren ( aged 30 months and 8 months) and our two closest friends.
The site provided us with such lovely accommodation- all extremely well-equipped, so tastefully furnished and spotlessly clean! The site manages to cater for all ages, offering so many different activities from table tennis to swimming and I must say it caters particularly well for the children! I would highly recommend this as a delightful holiday destination"


Laura Jane, July 2021: "Fantastic family holiday. We had a wonderful time at Beech Farm, everything was fantastic. We stayed in the Farmhouse, which was impeccably clean and well stocked, making it feel like a home from home. We were provided with blackout blinds, stair gates, baby bath and a proper cot, which made travelling with a baby & young child so much easier. The pool is lovely, and the play room & play ground are absolutely great for the little ones (and again all spotlessly clean). Graham & Kirsty are so friendly, and our son took a great shine to them during the animal feeding sessions, which he absolutely loved. We felt very well looked after, and had a great time exploring the surrounding area. Can’t recommend Beech Farm highly enough!"


Caroline W, July 2021: "Utterly delightful. We stayed at Beech Farm for a week during half term, as a mixed group - aged 8 to 70 (ish!) in two of the cottages on site. I can safely say this was one of the best holiday cottage experiences we have had. The quality of the cottages and the facilities on site were really excellent. All generations particularly enjoyed the really well organised (and covid safe) interactions with the animals, especially the feeding times. The swimming pool is clean, perfectly proportioned and a great treat after a days sight seeing. Our experience was a delight, and the little touches like the delicious brownies on arrival, the bbq and table tennis area, and the great little honesty shop all add to this. Graham and Kirsty were lovely, welcoming and helpful. We found the cottages were perfectly positioned within the county for so many different attractions and sights that we ran out of time! The perfect excuse to visit again another year…."
