"Fantastic, already booked to go back. 5 star!…"
A fabulous welcoming stay.
We had a fantastic stay at Higher Lank in August and have booked to return for Easter 2013. The kids are already talking of the repeat visit with great excitement!
We stayed in the farm house in Wisteria and found the accommodation perfect for our family of 5. Katie(6), Ben (4) and Lizzie (2) loved the array of toys in our room and the purpose built bunk beds saw Ben and Katie alternating each night up and down!
On arrival we immediately felt welcomed and at home, the tractor trailor ride to the beef cattle and feeding the herd was super and followed by a very welcome farmhouse tea in the farmyard- wow, what a spread!
It was lovely that within hours the children were enjoying playing with others in the farmhouse. The array of toys downstairs was excellent and Lizzie enjoyed selling fruit and vegetables to everyone from the market stall in the lounge!
Daily visits to the farm animals allowed the children to become mini farm experts. Their confidence grew daily and to see every child bottle feed a lamb every morning was amazing. Lizzie loved bottle feeding Ruby the goat and could do this independently. Their confidence also grew in collecting eggs, feeding pigs, goats, chickens, geese and ducks. The outdoor play areas were completely suitable to the ages of the children and the pony ride and pony trap ride memorable for them all.
We loved the food and the kids ate heartily at all the meals. We had nursery teas and adult meals when ever they were on offer and had 100% clear plates! It was fabulous that the children and we knew Lucy well enough to take up the offer of baby sitting for an evening and Dan and I had a super dinner out.
Knowing that we were eating such local fresh food was a great lesson for the children. Having Postman Pat van egg cups encouraged daily boiled eggs and soldiers! Even more exciting for having collected the eggs only the day before!
Thank you again and again to Lucy and Andrew for making our stay warm welcoming and memorable. See you again soon!Read moreLess
