Perfect for animal loving children up to age 10!
Baby, toddler and child friendly farm holidays especially tailored for families with babies, toddlers and children under ten, as featured in The Guardian, The Observer, The Times, The Daily Mail and others....
Higher Lank Farm is a traditional beef farm, proud of its suckler beef herd, sheep, pigs and poultry and farmed by the Finnemore family for over 100 years. The most special thing about staying with us is that because we only take a maximum of 5 families at any one time, Lucy and Daisy know every child by name, which ensures that your child will get a hands-on experience with all our animal activites and will truly be made to feel a special part of life on our farm.
We are NOT a theme park or a holiday village. We are a proper working farm and we invite you to become part of our daily farming life whilst you are with us.
