05. testimonials

LightPacker253366, May 2024 "A great stay at a great place! This was our second visit this year staying in Fat Hen cottage with our infant son. The cottage is lovely and spotlessly clean. The lovely homemade brownies, milk, tea and coffee provided were really welcome and lovely touches. Our bed was wonderfully comfy and a proper wooden cot provided.
The site itself is perfect, with a swimming pool, indoor playroom and outside playground which all got plenty of use. Plenty of places to visit nearby we revisited NYMR and Castle Howard which is fantastic for children. We’ve found the owners to be very friendly and helpful and they really care for their guests. We wouldn’t hesitate to return and stay again."

Danny A, April 2024: "Perfection. We've been to a few farm stays, and this one was the best we've been by a country mile.
Graham and Kirsty are fantastic hosts and really seem to have thought of everything to ensure our stay was perfect.
Our toddler had the time of his life feeding the animals each day, swimming, playing in the park and playroom, movie night, etc. It was an amazing stay and we can't wait to come back!


SHewat80, April 2024: "Perfect place to stay with a young family. This was our second stay at Beech Farm and it was just as good as we remembered. Tanglewood cottage was a perfect home away from home and our three year old daughter loved the daily animal feeding, pool and play areas. There was also lots to do close by (despite being off season) and we enjoyed trips to Dalby Forest, Piglets Adventure Farm and a couple of local NT properties. We are already planning another visit next year as Graham, Kirsty and the team have put in place such a wonderful set up for young families."
