Top of our requirements list at Parent Friendly Stays is always the question of how happy the children will be, and we’re pleased to note that despite its relatively small size the holiday accommodation at North Bradbury Farm is not short on child friendly activities. First of all, given the farm setting, children will doubtless enjoy helping feed the many animals of the surrounding farm which include free range chickens, ducks, cats, dogs, horses and ponies, pigs, geese, goats and sheep. Children are also encouraged to help collect the eggs from the chickens and can have a pony ride too (for an extra cost), in and amongst completing the organised scavenger and animal hunts. When they’re done with all that, kids will doubtless be keen to make good use of the outdoor heated swimming pool, outdoor play area (with ride on toys, trampoline, playhouse, play farm with slide, sandpit, swing and 13 ft trampoline) and separate adventure playground. Plus there’s a new Wilderness area with shelter complete with camp fire for cooking sausages or toasting marshmallows, a stream for dam building, trees to climb, mud kitchen to play in and plenty of places for den building. There are also around ten acres of safe countryside grounds to explore and enjoy, perfect for letting off steam – but helpfully for those inevitable rainier days there’s a useful children’s book and DVD library too, and a small indoor play area with table football and air hockey.
