In more detail
Our indoor heated pool measures 34 feet by 17 feet and has gentle steps into the shallow end. With the six large south facing patio windows that overlook the pond and countryside you can enjoy swimming all year at Knowle Farm and on finer days with the outside decking area you will be able to stretch out in the sun between dips in the pool.
Walk-in Rabbit Area and Toddler 'Race Track'
The outer area provides an enclosed, safe play environment for young children with ride on toys, a fun tractor tyre tunnel and rubberised play surface, while the inner area houses a walk in rabbit/guinea pig enclosure.
Outdoor Games Area
New for 2019. This brand new area has been levelled and grassed to make it perfect for outdoor games. There are a goal and balls for football, badminton & croquet sets, and a full size purpose built boules court. To complete the English summer lawn picture we also provide deck chairs for much needed rest between games. Perfect for all ages.
44 acres of our own beautiful countryside
With over a mile of natural woodland and riverside walks to explore including a fun children's animal 'I spy' hunt. Or you can simply relax and watch the animals and wildlife around the pond.
Unique to Knowle Farm, our very own borehole water which is free of additives and tastes so much better than regular tap water.
Walk to the local pub
Our local pub in Rattery, The Church House Inn, is a 15 minute walk away and is one of the oldest pubs in England, dating back to the 11th century. They serve great food and are child friendly.
The river may be narrow but they have been caught - even with fly. Better still there is a local fishery in Rattery for serious fishing.
The Play Barn features a purpose built soft play area for children aged five and under with ball pool (1,500 balls!) slide, tunnels, loft house and lots of other toys. Also in the same room are a pool table and table tennis table for older children and adults to enjoy.
Newly resurfaced in 2017, the outdoor tennis court looks out over the pond and countryside. Rackets and balls are available to borrow.
Wooden Play Unit
With towers, walkway, swings, ladders, ropes and slide children of all ages can play while overlooking the pond and animals.
Can often be arranged so you can enjoy an evening out. Booking in advance of your holiday is recommended (police checked sitter).
