Smallicombe is a thriving working farm, specialising in rare breed livestock. As well as the acres of outstanding scenery to explore there are wonderful opportunities for the children to interact with the animals, including collecting eggs, feeding the pigs, mixing meal for the nursing sows and cuddling the rabbits. Longer ‘farm experience’ mornings can also be arranged for super-keen visitors!
Children staying at Smallicombe will also enjoy making use of the large on-site play area with basket swing, slide, climbing wall, sunken trampoline and tractor; while younger tots will enjoy the safe toddler play area with sand table, play house, play kitchen, little slides and rocking horse. There are also garden games to borrow including swing ball, badminton net, croquet and bowls.
Great for tiring out little ones, there are two marked farm trails to explore at Smallicombe. They’re perfectly suited to little legs, though wellies or sturdy shoes are recommended! And the bubbling brook which runs through the site is perfect for pooh sticks or pond dipping. Smallicombe’s unique fairy trail, with magical gifts for successful completion, are also an exciting little extra perfect for young ones.
