“Great place for children and a peaceful atmosphere”
Reviewed August 25, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Myself and my husband took our three year old here for a week as we thought she might like the farm. Not only did she love the animals and the fact she could feed them, she loved the plentiful garden toys and the toys and books provided in the cottage.
The cottage was lovely and clean with everything we needed. It was very quiet there which was lovely. We could have spent all week at the cottage as there was so much to do for our little girl, however, we didn't as there is plenty to do within easy drives of the farm.
The swimming pool is a nice extra. It has a cover over it to keep the heat in but this is very easy to remove and replace and is a good idea. It is reassuring to know there is a lock on the door so small children can't get in by accident. Use of a washing machine was handy and much cheaper than a laundrette! Nice to see an emphasis on recycling as well.
Melanie was lovely, always chatty and friendly and happy to answer any questions we had. She bought us some extra toys for in the cottage when we arrived and she realised our little girl was slightly older than she'd thought. Mike was also very friendly, we just didn't see him as often!
Overall, we were very pleased with the accomodation and the atmosphere there. We would recommend it to anyone with small children and I'm sure we'll be back (or our daughter will not be happy - she still mentions the farm and asks if we can go back, a couple of months after our stay).

We had an amazing week on trevorick farm, the facilities were excellent and spotlessly clean. The children got to help with animals and the play facilities for them were excellent, the effort put in to accommodate us was evident, even down to toys in the cottage being of relevant age to our children. The indoor pool was excellent and the locatin of the farm was perfct. I would highly recommend, especially for families with children of any age.

“Enjoyable, friendly and relaxing”
Reviewed July 27, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We have just come back from Trevorrick Farm after having a great week. Thanks to Melanie and Mike for their welcome and David for his help with getting out the guineapigs - I'm hoping that the kids forget about them soon...

The accommodation had everything you needed and there's loads for slightly older, but not yet teenage kids, to do although the farm is well set up for kids of all ages. The swimming pool was a big hit and plenty warm enough.

The beaches are wonderful and if you don't mind a few hills then take your bikes. Will definitely return some time.

The only minor downside was the wifi which was a bit haphazard, but this bothered the children more than it did us!

“Best family holiday ever!”
Reviewed July 17, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

That's what our kids said and we have to agree with them. Arrived after a full days travelling Mike and Melanie were very welcoming, even though we were much later than expected. The children loved helping with the animals both in the morning and the evening, and although you could see and hear the animals throughout the day and evening they weren't intrusive. Nothing was a problem for Mike and Melanie, and Melanie in particular always stopped for a word when she passed you by. This area of Cornwall is spectacularly beautiful, and Trevorrick Farm is excellently located for access to the Camel Trail, both by foot and bike. The pool was clean and warm, and we all enjoyed a swim after a day out in the sunshine. Trevorrick was within reasonable driving distance to most of Cornwall (90 minutes to Lands End, less than an hour to Eden Project), allowing a good mix of days away and around the farm and Padstow. Facilities in the cottage were excellent, and the washing machines were reasonable and functioned well.

Overall, our holiday was everything we hoped, and more than we really expected. We would have no hesitation in recommending or returning to Trevorrick Farm.

“Toddler friendly - stunning location”
Reviewed July 14, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Finally got round to writing this review! My partner and I stayed in Old Round House with our 2 year old in the first 2 weeks of June. It is a gorgeous little cottage with a perfectly safe and secure enclosed garden. Very well equipped with everything one would need for a 2 week break, like being a home from home. Lots of DVDs, videos, books. Melanie and Mike are quite unique in providing plenty of age related toys for little ones of all ages which I thought was wonderful. My little boy was thrilled when we arrived to find 3 boxes of toys and Melanie kindly set up the train set which was played with constantly thought out the holiday. If required The owners provide cots, a potty, baby baths, high chair and for our trip to St Michael's Mount we used a child carrier also provided in our cottage. Not only this, there are outdoor toys aplenty on the farm. We just missed the completion of the fabulous new climbing fame in the field adjacent to the cottage. The animals are a delight and were thrilled and very excited when I used to arrive with any leftovers food. We were certainly lucky to have the 3 little lambs living so close to our cottage and being able to help bottle feed them. Melanie was definitely their adopted Mummy and it was lovely to see them follow her when she took them to and from the fields. I was tempted to scoop them up and take them home with us when we left! The birds nesting in the Wash House, which was also where the Turkey chicks (2 days old when I arrived) lived added to the charm of Trevorrick. The views from the cottage and farm are stunning and it is truly somewhere I felt comfortable and relaxed. The WIFI was not too good, maybe routers would be ideal for each cottage? I also did not realise that I had to feed the washing machine meter. I can completely understand the Eco friendly ethos the owners promote here and treat the property as you would your own home. For example leaving it as you would expect to find it and think about the electricty etc you use. I did feel some pressure to keep it clean and tidy all the time but then I do keep my own home like this. Also when staying for 2 weeks, you are offered a change of bedding but you change the bed(s) yourself. Melanie and Mike were never too far away and always really friendly and helpful and Melanie I enjoyed our chats! Well don't all women?! We were very lucky to have stunning weather for 9 consecutive days so spent lots of unexpected days on the beach, mainly Trevone. The location is great for touring all of Cornwall with beautiful Padstow so close. Rick Stein's bistro was a special treat and worth a visit! My little boy is 2 and I think this is great place for young families. He settled in straight away and loved it here, as did his Mummy and Daddy. Thank you Melanie and Mike.

Absolute pleasure to have you stay and thank you for your lovely review. The "what's inside" section of each cottage page on the website states that the communal washing machines/tumbler drier are coin operated (in "The Wash House" so no noise in the cottage), so sorry that was missed by our guest. The cottage has it's own router in the loft, because of the characterful think walls. Our guest may have been affected by the intermittent internet problem - now hopefully fixed. I don't think we are any different from any UK cottage provider in our booking terms and conditions re leaving the cottage clean and tidy on departure. It is always very much appreciated. We will consider offering to remake beds midway for 2 week stays in 2014, but we have always felt guests prefer to have the cottage "to themselves" during their stay, but the feedback is appreciated. Hope to see you all again very soon!! Melanie xxx

“Good for traditional families”
Reviewed July 9, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Just to say, unlike some of the other reviewers, we found Mike an Melanie very helpful. Melanie unpacked my Tesco delivery before we arrived and Mike mended my daughters bike. The cottage was clean and airy. The animals charming and well behaved. I was expecting noise at first light but I was often up and running before we even heard them. The lambs that lived opposite my cottage door gave a welcoming baa first thing( and once when we arrived home at midnight ..whoops sorry neighbours) Wifi was a bit hit and miss so don't rely on it and you won't be disappointed. It may be helpful to know as I don't think it says on the website or booking forms-that that garden Owls Rest is not attached to the cottage so may be a problem for people with little ones. The washing facilities are coin operated £1 per wash. The bike store open shed and you cannot let your teenagers swim without you being there. This was a little annoying for my 17 and 10 year old, as if I was getting tea ready or other jobs,they couldn't use the pool, but as Mike said' most guests have a Mum and Dad with them ' Point taken, hence my recommendation would be great for families with school age children, but SP families not so much. Don't forget to check out the Barn Owls-spectacular

Thank you for your review, and many thanks for the help of your youngest who was so good with the animals! We love the name of “Tucker” she gave to our black Muscovy duck that was brought up with some turkeys last year and now thinks it is a turkey too!! Our insurance cover requires supervision by over 18s of younger children in our indoor pool – so non negotiable. Mike was horrified to think he may have made the quoted comment. He can only think the context may have been in speaking to the 10 year old, who came round alone to ask for the code to the swimming pool door. He explained he needed to show her Mum or Dad, unaware of the family composition at that stage. We sincerely apologise for any unintentional offence caused. The lovely enclosed garden, using original flagstones, adjacent to the cottage was constructed spring 2012. Another recent reviewer refers to the fact that the location of the garden was “as advertised”, but we will review the description on the website. As on previous review reply, the recent intermittent internet problem now fixed courtesy of BT – we hope! Melanie xxx

“Loved it”

Hi we stayed there - 2 adults and 2 children - and it is a great place to base from. Padstow is a good walk and the farm itself is great for the kids. Melanie is everywhere; so much so we thought she was cloned, and is incredibly friendly. Definately recommend.
