About & Contact

Child friendly two bedroom barn converted cottage

Knowle Farm is idyllically set in 44 acres of beautiful South Devon countryside with its very own woodland and riverside walks where you can truly relax and unwind.

Helping you to enjoy your well deserved break are our excellent facilities for children. Our purpose built indoor toddler soft play area is hugely popular, along with our wide selection of friendly farm animals. Let your child feed a pig, stroke a donkey, meet a sheep and hear a cockerel crow. Don’t forget the ducks and peacock - just open your cottage door and they'll be waiting to be fed.

The indoor heated pool with gentle steps into the shallow end is bright and welcoming at all times of the year. Personal swimming lessons by a qualified teacher are available - many youngsters have first learnt to swim here including our own grandchildren.

There’s a lot more to do as well – other facilities include a pool table, table tennis, outdoor play areas and tennis court. Our walk-in rabbit area with surrounding toddler 'Race Track' is a recent addition that is immensely popular.

You won’t even have to prepare your meals – we sell a great choice of locally produced ready meals, ice creams and drinks.

Local attractions include steam trains, boat trips and an absolute multitude of fun things to do with the children. Fantastic sandy beaches just 30 minutes away and the majestic Dartmoor National Park is right on our doorstep. There is an excellent 11thC local village pub that is child friendly and offers the perfect place for an evening out.

Applecross is a pretty 'upside down' cottage with a double and a bunk bedroom that will sleep up to four plus a cot. This cottage was converted from an old stone barn and has lots of character. Downstairs is the entrance hall and the bedrooms plus a separate bathroom/WC and over bath shower. Upstairs is an open plan kitchen/dining/living area with high beams, woodburning stove and lovely views over the courtyard with the pond and countryside beyond.

All six of our cottages include: Woodburning stoves; Freesat HD TV (CBeebies etc.); DVD; WiFi and just about everything you could hope for, including cots and highchairs. To save you the packing we also have baby baths, microwave sterilisers and booster steps available to borrow.
