At Bampfield Farm, children and adults help collect eggs for their breakfast, feed and walk the goats or brush the ponies. They also offer pony rides for young children, swings, slides, and a playroom packed with toys and games.
Their farm tour includes seeing the milking of our free range cows, and catching a glimpse of all the wildlife around the farm. Guests return time and time again for the tranquil peace and relaxation that is found here on the farm.
Lynda, who owns and runs Bampfield Farm alongside her husband, has a long history with the farm having lived and worked there her whole life. The only time she has moved away from the farm was when she studied at Bicton Agricultural College. However, even then she came home every weekend to help with the milk round and milking of the cows.
When we asked Lynda about why she started the holiday cottages she said, ‘Farming income fluctuates so my mum and I set up Bampfield Farm Cottages because as the old saying goes, “don’t put your eggs all in one basket”. I am often heard saying this to the guests as they collect their eggs for breakfast!’
