The Farmhouse is the largest of 11 holiday cottages on a well maintained and attractive site hidden down a long lane a few miles from Crackington Haven. There are lovely views, woodland and fields for dog walks (not all properties accept dogs), a laundry (in addition to the washer drier in the Farmhouse) and indoor and outdoor children's play areas including a football field, and indoor area with pool, table tennis etc for bigger children. There is a good range of DVDs and books and toys for children to borrow if the weather is bad.
Simon, the manager was really helpful and friendly and the 16th century Farmhouse was clean and well equipped. Everything was in excellent condition as the Farmhouse has only recently been renovated. There is a nice enclosed garden with direct access to swings and a field and the thick walls and slate floors kept the place surprisingly cool. There is a 100 year old 4 door Aga and a separate cooker. The Aga made the larger of the 2 kitchens a bit hot but was ideal for drying clothes and towels overnight.
The Farmhouse is ideal for up to 3 couples or an extended family as it has 3 double beds (1x5ft), 2 ensuites and a big family bathroom. The master bedroom is fairly separate so 2 families/groups have a lot of privacy. Equally there are 2 large sitting rooms with TVs (one of which was HUGE) and 2 fully equipped kitchens. When the weather is cooler, both sitting rooms have wood burning stoves and the Aga will keep the place warm.
There is a pack of to do leaflets provided but no maps. Wifi was generally fine.
