Our review of Lower Campscott Farm


There are eight child friendly cottages and lodges at Lower Campscott Farm.  All are spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The largest family friendly property, Pinetree Lodge, sleeps eight – perfect for two families or a trip away with the grandparents – while the smallest, cosy Stable Cottage, sleeps three. In total there’s accommodation for 40 people which can be booked in a variety of combinations; an on-site function room makes Lower Campscott a great place for larger family gatherings or special occasions.

For an idea of prices, a week-long stay during the summer peak in Hydrangea Cottage – sleeping four plus a cot – will currently cost around £1200.


Younger visitors to Lower Campscott Farm will find a variety of exciting child-friendly outdoor activities on offer. Being a working 35 acre family farm there’s the opportunity to meet, feed and pet the animals each day – from pigs, pygmy goats and Shetland ponies (who love being taken for a walk) to pedigree Dexter cows and friendly Devon Longwool sheep. Younger children will enjoy giving the resident rabbits and guinea pigs a cuddle, while everyone can also help with the daily egg collecting and take one home for breakfast! Oh, and did we mention there are tractor and trailer rides too?

When it’s time to run around and let off steam, kids will enjoy Lower Campscott’s wild flower meadow, nature reserve and farm trail, along with the farm’s outdoor play area (overlooking the sea!) with swings, climbing frame, slide and so on, plus a hard play area perfect for basketball and riding on trikes. There’s also a well-equipped indoor games room with table tennis, pool, table football and more. DVDs, books and board games are available to borrow too.
