Tree house in the woods. Gypsy caravan with a camp fire. Trampoline and zip-wire. Sand pit, slides and swings (we have 13 at the last count). Animals to pet. Croquet lawn. BBQ. Table tennis. Ponds with boats. To answer the question: why this property: the answer is because it has everything you need to enjoy being here. WiFi is superfast Fibre with 20-200MBps

We were so happy there!
The place was lovely the people were great! I couldn’t ask for a better experience.
It was great to have you stay with us. We look forward to seeing you again.
Another wonderful stay!
Willow cottage is a beautiful, charming and cosy cottage. It has everything we need and more for a happy holiday. We have 2 children aged 6 and 10 who excitedly dash out the front door of the cottage each day, eager to explore the grounds and have fun on the zip wire. The views across the countryside are stunning and make us want to sell up and escape to the country every time we visit! There is plenty to see and do in the surrounding areas and we always receive a very warm welcome from the Tanswell family. This is our fourth time at the Hamptons farmhouse simply because it is what it is, a child friendly holiday! Our children ask us each year if were coming back and its a no brainer, we absolutely love it.
It is lovely to know you enjoy your holidays at Hamptons Farmhouse. It is a real pleasure to host you and to see your kids grow and thrive more and more each year.
A piece of heaven in West Peckham !
Two weeks at willow Cottage certainly wasn't enough. The cottage and surrounding grounds are idyllic. Cleanliness is outstanding. The cottage is well equipped. Very comfortable bed, soft towels and linen. Hot water and heating accessible on demand. A well informed visitors book with heaps of information concerning the local amenities, maps and guide books on hand too. A generous welcome pack on arrival which I feel sure I could have comfortably lived off for at least a week. I truly relaxed here, it was perfect. Thank you Katie and Andy for being fantastic hosts.
We are delighted your stay with us was so enjoyable. Thank you for taking the time to write a thoughtful and informative review. We hope we might see you again - you would be very welcome.
Very comfortable, well equipped and so very child friendly.
All the cottages are very pretty. They are comfortable, well furnished and well equipped. On arrival there was a basic selection of provisions and a vase of flowers which was very appreciated and homely. The gardens are beautiful with plenty of out door eating areas. The rabbits, sheep and ducks are great to watch. There is so much for children to do at this place, trampoline, forts, zip wire, tennis, plenty of bikes and scooters. Katie and Andy are very welcoming. What is noticeable is that the children are free to explore and make the most of the activities without endless warning signs, restrictions or ‘no go’ areas. Would love to stay here again when in the area and friends who visited thought it was wonderful.

Thank you for taking the time to do a review. We look forward to seeing you again. You will be most welcome.
Cottage charmant, cosy, à la décoration soignée, très bien équipé. Il est situé au milieu d'un vaste domaine spécialement aménagé pour les enfants. Nos enfants ont particulièrement apprécié le trampoline et le terrain de tennis mais nous avons aussi beaucoup joué au tennis avec eux.
Nous avons profité de la semaine pour sillonner en marchant et en courant les sentiers de la région, les footpaths, dont un passe derrière le domaine. Pratique.
We have a detailed Information Pack on local attractions, activities, outings etc which we can make available through DropBox. We are very happy to send this to you in advance of you booking
