Gladwins Farm offers a extremely child friendly holiday; kids love the freedom to wander, whether to the outside play area, the wendy house or moseying along to see their favourite animals.
At Gladwins Farm there is an outdoor playground with swings for all ages, a rocking rooster, a wendy house complete with kitchen and a football goal to practice your skills! In addition to this, there is a full size, all-weather tennis court and a selection of tennis racquets and balls to borrow. Children and adults alike can also play croquet on the lawn or simply enjoy the view from a picnic table. There's a woodland walk, which takes you round the woods where the children can spot the resident wildlife. Or you can link to the surrounding footpaths and cycle routes and explore the beauty of the Suffolk countryside further.
At Gladwins Farm there are 9 child friendly cottages to choose from and a whole host of activities and facilities suitable for the whole family. The play barn caters for children of all ages. Situated far enough away from the holiday cottages so as not to spoil the peace and quiet, the barn consists of a table tennis area, a soft play area for babies and toddlers and a TV area with a Wii.
Forget the English weather; the water in our heated indoor swimming pool is always a toasty 30 degrees and it's the same depth - 1.25 metres - throughout, so it's easy keeping your children safe. The pool itself is well-appointed, clean and comfortable, with spacious changing facilities and, as you might expect, it has nappy-changing facilities, too. After a swim you can then take a dip and relax in your outdoor hot tub!
Everyone knows how addictive kids find water and, when they're on holiday, how a daily dunk can see their confidence and proficiency rise. It's not uncommon to see a reluctant, first-day toe-dipper transformed into a last-day jumper-in. Swimming lessons are available for all ages from our resident swimming instructor.
As well as the play barn and swimming pool, come and visit the 'Gladwins Gang'. Young children and toddlers love to feed animals, drop pellets for the pigs and watch them devour the scraps from their kitchens. The children can feed the pigmy goats straight from their hands. They can help collect the eggs from the chickens and make friends with the resident horses and sheep. From what they say, for many children, feeding an animal is their most treasured memory.
Our 9 cottages are baby friendly cottages and for the mums and dads we have a wide range of baby equipment to borrow. Items include cots, high chairs, baby bath, sterilisers, monitor and much more. These items must be booked before arrival. Within all of the baby friendly cottages we have baby suitable bowls/plates/cups/cutlery. Emergency baby packs are also available which include nappies and wipes etc. We also have swimming nappies available for sale.
Fancy a night off? We can arrange a local, CRB checked baby sitter so you can explore the wide range of fantastic local restaurants.
