We spent just under a week here in February half term. My wife and our daughters (2 and 4) arranged the break to get some "time on a farm" and that is exactly what we got. The location is excellent as a base for trips around Cornwall which we did every afternoon. From rock pooling to boat trips, picnics and nice lunches to a day trip to the Eden project; nothing was too far away. The evenings were spend eating in the lovely converted barns and then watching DVD's (that can be borrowed from reception) and playing games in front of the wood burner.
The morning were the highlight for the children and adults combined! Every weekday morning we met with the other families (there were 4 other adults and 6 other children staying in different cottages at the same time) and Farmer Keith to go and feed the animals! Having been brought up in leafy SW London, our children were not overly familiar or keen on anything more than our neighbours cat, so day one they were a bit timid. By the end of our stay they were happily feeding goats, pigs, chickens, horses, guinea pigs and giant Rabbits! They also got very comfortable with the child friendly farm dogs!
They also provide pony rides and "barrel" rides which are a train of barrels towed around the farm behind a classic tractor. The girls came back giggling and laughing and covered in mud having had a great time! Our 2 year old kept screaming - "this is fun!".
I forgot to mention - there is also a playground suitable for all ages and an indoor playroom with pool table, wendy houses and play shops etc so on the last day as we were packing up - the kids were fully entertained for and happy that we ended up leaving a couple of hours after we had planned!
The accomodation is great and exactly what we wanted. Warm, secure, farmish (you have to see the beams and vaulted ceilings - they are converted barns) and it really felt like a home from home after a day throwing stones and eating cafe soup in the rain!
We all came back rosey cheeked and relaxed - wish I felt the same now! We will be back and have also recommended to other families so you will need to book up soon!
