“Fantastic family holiday”
Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

This was our 4th visit to Tredethick. It is a great place to go on holiday with children. Excellent facilities, indoor pool, outdoor hot-tub, soft play with coffee and magazines for mum and dad, indoor play barn and sandpit. We had great weather and well located to explore beaches and local attractions. Not forgetting the accommodation is excellent standard and has everything you need for great holiday. Farmer
Tim and Farmer Jenny make the experience great for the children, with animal feeding and pony rides.
Would highly recommend Tredethick for family holiday. Booked again for next year!

This was our first visit to Tredethick and we would definitely come back. It is brilliant for a young family. We went with our 15 month old who had a fantastic time. Feeding the animals and the pony rides were a definite highlight. Even if the weather had not been glorious there would have been plenty to do. Our daughter loved the soft play area and the pool and every night insisted on saying night night to all of the animals. I do think that we will be back! highly recommended.

Room Tip: We stayed in Orchard cottage which is away from the central area so it was probably a bit quieter fo...

This was our second visit to Tredethick and we had a wonderful week. Our kids aged 2 and 5 had been looking forward to it and were not disappointed - within minutes of arriving they were off rediscovering the soft play room, riding scooters etc. The animal feeding was still a huge hit with the kids and we love it too. The facilities are great and everything was very clean. We used the pool every day which was clean and warm - yes non residents do use it but we only encountered this on 2 days. We stay in Hayloft which is very comfortable and homely. The accommodation is not boutique style luxury but this is not what we expect on a family friendly farm stay - that said it is nicely done, well kept and comfortable. We also love the fact that it opens onto the shared garden as each late afternoon all the kids played out there together which was great for them and us.

Tredethick isn't cheap but for us is worth the money as it feels like a holiday for all of us - we have already booked for next year.

Room Tip: If you have kids old enough to play with other children I would recommend a cottage backing onto the...

Our first visit and would definitely come again. A perfect holiday for a family with young children. Ours were 2 and 4 and had a brilliant time. One of the reasons we chose Tredethick was because of the range of activities available - playbarn, soft play, indoor pool, hot tub, playground, sand pit as well as the farm activities. We all loved bottle feeding the lambs, feeding the other animals and collecting the eggs from the chickens. And the pony rides. All the little details really made a difference - blackout blinds and bed guards provided, booster seat, plastic plates and cups, child sized cutlery, stepping stool in the bathroom and even a non- slip mat for the bath.

There was also plenty to do without having to go far - restormel castle, polkerris beach, lerryn, handy shops in Lostwithiel...

Farmer Tim and the team were lovely, friendly, welcoming, and helpful and great with all the children.

Having one of the cottages round the central gardens meant that all the children could play with eachother and they loved the toy tractors, scooters, and balance bikes (in a range of sizes).

Can't recommend highly enough. It is expensive, but well worth it.

Room Tip: Wagonhouse was fine for us as a family of four. Opened onto the central gardens.

Stayed here in early June with our 3.5 yr old and 14 mth old. We were lucky that the weather was fantastic so we were able to take full advantage of the surrounding area as well as the lovely facilities onsite, but even if it had been raining we would have had a great time I'm sure. The farm is lovely, everything is well thought out with great attention to detail. Welcome pack of local produce on arrival, farm shop with fantastic local cider and biscuits, plus ready meals for the nights when you don't fancy cooking. The soft play area was a huge hit with our eldest, we were in there at least twice a day, and the swimming pool and playground were a close second, everywhere was immaculate too. Accommodation was clean and comfortable, not high-end 5* but then who wants that with young children?! At least we could relax knowing that a broken cup (over zealous 14 mth old!) wasn't going to cost us a fortune. We have never been to the same place twice on holiday, but have booked to go back again next year. Our daughter asked us if we could sell our house and live there permanently, and for a moment we were tempted! Book it, you won't regret it.

Room Tip: We stayed in Searles and loved it as it was quieter than the other cottages around the courtyard, an...

Like one of the other contributors we have never gone to the same place twice until we found Tredethick..... This year will be our 4th year. Every year I say this will be our last year and yet back we go. And back we go because it is fantastic. Tim, Jenny and the team have thought of everything to keep families happy and relaxed during their valuable downtime. The cottages are of an exceptional standard and the kids are safe to have fun and make the most of all the attractions. As for the locals in the pool we have always found they very friendly however for the record you frequently have the pool to yourselves.
We are not rich maybe mad but honestly if you want a great value family holiday where everyone comes away with great memories and feeling relaxed then this is the place for you. If you can get in :-)

Just visited with children 4 1/2 and 1 year. Was amazed that we were the only family out of the 9 cottages who had not stayed there before - people seem to come back regularly and I can understand why. They do the little things really well + aside of obvious highlights of daily animal feeding and twice weekly pony rides, the soft play, outdoor playground and swimming pool / hot tub are to a very high standard (the play barn also does what it says on the tin). Accommodation is pretty decent but the ability to let the kids scoot around and meet other kids in soft play etc is fantastic. Farmer Tim + team are good people who understand what works for young families + give great advice on local attractions, restaurants etc (there's plenty of good stuff within a 20 minute car journey).

If your kids are aged 10 and under, you can't beat Tredethick. It's not cheap, especially in peak times, but you will have a great time here.

I'd love the Wi-fi to be quicker and for Cornwall to be closer to London to make the journey shorter, but otherwise have no complaints.

Room Tip: The 6 cottages with central courtyard are perhaps best for the kids to mix with each other, but we s...
