Families and Children & Toddlers

Having children ourselves – we know the value of being able to relax on holiday. Our aim, therefore, is to provide a fun holiday packed with lots of happy memories for your children to take away, whilst also giving parents the time, space and peace of mind to really enjoy their holiday. Our grounds and cottages have been designed with this in mind – they are well equipped to provide you with all you need for the perfect holiday.

Your children and toddlers will love joining us each week day morning to help get the guinea pigs out of their cages, plus help to bottle feed the lambs (seasonal) and hand feed the pigmy goats and chickens. After feeding the animals we collect the eggs from the chickens and the children can carry them home for breakfast. Also after the animal feeding, we offer free rides on Noah the pony (for those aged six and under). Or for all ages (children and adults !)  there is a ride around the farm in the barrel train, pulled by our own little red tractor (see video below).

In addition, Polean Farm is a working livery yard and children and parents often enjoy visiting the horses and ponies each day.

We also provide:

  • Safe courtyard area with ride on toy tractors.
  • Outdoor playground with climbing frame, trampoline, swings and slides. Seating areas for parents to relax whilst watching the children play.
  • Little Tikes ‘bucket’ swing, climbing frame, slide and ‘see-saw’ for toddlers.
  • Indoor activities for infants including little tikes toys and a wooden train set.
  • Pool table and table football for older children and adults
  • Indoor games room with a soft playmat area, childrens toys and a pool table and table football (see pictures).
  • Large field at the front of the farm – with goal posts and plenty of space for kite flying etc.
  • Daily animal feeds of the chickens, goats, guinea pigs, lambs, rabbits and pigs (animals may vary depending upon the time of year).
  • Pony rides for children up to the age of 6 (on Noah the Shetland pony – see photos) or Tractor rides (for all ages) around the farm – all year round.
  • Use of an indoor heated swimming pool just two miles away.
  • Baby sitting service can be arranged.
  • A collection of board games, maps and books etc for use by guests.
