For the last few years we've spent Easter and the October half term in various child friendly cottages in Devon, Cornwall or Dorset. Coombe Mill is the first venue that we are all keen to revisit. You have got it just right, the children absolutely loved it and when they're happy we're all happy.

We had an amazing week at Coombe Mill. We were so impressed by the accomodation and facilities, as well as loving meeting the animals. We are recommending you to all our friends and shall certainly return ourselves.

We have been coming here since 2007 when we were brought by friends: Genie, our silly spaniel was 10 months old. Genie is now 5 1/2 and has been back a further 5 times: we have already booked for next year when we will be bringing back the friends from 2007!
We really love it here; everything about it is so peaceful (I love it when complete darkness comes) with virtually no traffic noise. We nearly always stay in Eden and it's like a second home for us now. The morning feed-runs are fantastic; I have been once with a friend's little daughter (that was 2 years ago when she was 2 and she still talks about Farmer Nick and Houdini the little goat). I was raised in Cornwall, so am obviously slightly biased about my county, but for value for money, friendliness and access to great walking (also known as trying to tire Genie!), we would have to go a long way to beat Coombe Mill.

Finding a holiday that allows us, as parents a break, and keeps a 4 year old and a 12 year old happy is a challenge in itself, Coombe Mill delivered on all counts!

We would like to thank you, Nick, Ted and everyone else at Coombe Mill for a wonderful week. The holiday completely lived up to our expectations - which were very high! Felix in particular loved every moment and since returning home has been asking to go back to the "holiday farm" and to see his favourite rabbit "Brownie". I'm sure we'll be back one day as I expect he and Sylvie wi'll enjoy it even more when a little older and bigger.

Thank you guys so much for yet another fantastic holiday from the Odells and Lakeys. Been coming to Coombe now for over 16 years and always have such a wonderful relaxing time. Lovely to see how your family are consistently making improvements each year by adding new animals, accommodation etc. Your enthusiasm is the same as when you first took over which is brilliant. Coombe will always be a holiday favourite with us and we will be back!!! xx

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for our two-night stay last week in the gorgeous Honeysuckle cottage. We had such a fabulous time. Really idyllic and such a wonderful place for our son Wilfred to explore. Have been raving about it to all the other parents I know! I hope we'll be back next year for a full week.

A fantastic place to go for a family holiday. The children can really get involved and dont want to go home! My little boy loved it and cant wait to go back next year.

We had our best ever family holiday with you (so much better than Euro Disney!!). We’re hoping to come back again next year.

We returned on saturday from a weeks holiday at Coombe Mill. We all had a wonderful time, we have two children one pre school and one at school and they both enjoyed the holiday. Although we were busy with visiting animals, going to the play areas and meeting new people, it was a very relaxing holiday. We felt no urgency to dash anywhere or fill our days with days out as there was so much to do on the farm and our children were content with being there. Our youngest daughter loved the rabbits and the peacocks and the eldest thought farmer Nick was great. The feedrun was brilliant and Farmer Nick gave us lots of information and made a little girl very happy on her final day by being very aware that all she wanted to do was find a egg and he (very secretly) made sure she did - thankyou farmer Nick! We even used the key stage worksheets which our eldest loved - all very well thought out. We stayed in the riverside lodge, which was what it is advertised as - small and basic - but it met our needs perfectly. We were all sad to leave and hope to return next summer.

My parents started visiting Coombe Mill back in the 60's & 70's and took my brother and I many times when we were younger. My wife and I have just returned from taking our own children there for the 5th time. Thanks for a brilliant week. The kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves and are desperate to come back next year. Thanks to Farmer Ted too, who was brilliant on the feed runs! Also followed his advice and had a really good 4 hour journey home!

Hi farmer Nick and Fiona, just wanted to say that we're home from having the most wonderful and magical week at Coombe Mill. We were all very sad to be leaving but hope to see you all again very soon. Take care and all the best, the Hennessy family.
