Hello smile

We are considering a working farm holiday this summer, and wondered if anyone can point me in the direction of a decent place and/or website please!

TIA

well...as it happens...

by coincidence I've discovered the Animal Planet prog Farm Life this week, filmed on Warborne Farm in the New Forest - it was made in 2008, screened in monthly episodes (ie each episode covered 1 month), fascinating programme & it looks like a proper farm.

Anyway I googled the place today & this summer they are doing holiday cottages for the first time - possibly because the downturn in the economy meant they had to close the farm organic shop sad

there are 2 barns to rent & atm both are available most of the year

obv they're new to this game but going by the open days etc shown on the prog they are very hospitable & friendly & fun - they have 3 kids of their own, aged 10, 9 & 6 - it would be an experience!

Thanks Ponders. It looks lovely. Only thing is, it's only about 30 mins from where we live; was kind of looking further afield- Devon or Cornwall or Wales.

Anyone else?
