Catherine, July 2022 "Just keeps getting better. This was our 3rd visit to beech farm cottages and hopefully not our last. It just keeps getting better! This year the bar was raised by kids craft activities, a movie night, giant garden games and a visit from a pizza truck. Our kids love the indoor and outdoor play areas and the small animal sessions and of course the pool! Additional flexibility now as you can use the pool anytime rather than timed slots.
The cottage (Tanglewood) was spotless, comfortable and very well equipped. We honestly didn’t want to come home. Thank you to all the staff and we hope to see you again in future :)

Farrah C, July 2022: "A wonderful experience with our 18 month old daughter. We had a truly lovely time at Beech Farm Cottages. We stayed in Tanglewood cottage which was very cosy and had all the amenities you could need for home away from home. Travelling with a toddler isnt light but they provided all the bits & pieces we needed including cot, baby bath, changing mat etc...
The site was extremely well looked after, with the most amazing play room which my daughter just loved. It had things to keep everyone busy from tiny toddlers, to grown ups too. The outdoor play area had a lovely mud kitchen, slide and trampoline which we spent most of the day on!
The best part of our trip was the getting to feed the sheep and goats every morning. Graham and Kirsty make sure everyone gets involved and they are full of enthusiasm.
All in all we had such a lovely stay and we will definitely be coming back again!"

 

Kate S, July 2022 "Family trip with 4 and 1 year old. We have just returned from the most wonderful 4 days on beech farm. Our cottage, beech Royd was lovely and very cosy and the playroom and pool were superb. The honesty shop and laundry is a lovely addition too.
Feeding the goats every morning was a great way to start the day and there are so many things to do with the kids locally as well.
Kirsty, Graham and Sarah couldn’t have been more helpful and we had as much fun as the kids did.
We will be back next summer without a doubt and hopefully for much longer than 4 days!!"
