This place really does have it all and much more besides…

Set in idyllic Cornish countryside, Polean Farm offers seven charming, quality holiday cottages just two miles from the coast that can accommodate up to a maximum of 8 people. Set in beautiful rolling countryside, much of which is a wildlife haven, these spacious, comfortable and tastefully decorated cottages are set around a pretty courtyard.

The Children are going to love Polean

Your children will love to help get the guinea pigs out of their cages, bottle feed the lambs and hand feed the pigmy goats and chickens. After feeding the animals there is the egg collection from the chickens and the children can carry them home for breakfast. Also following the animal feeding, there are free rides on Noah the pony (for those aged six and under) and rides on Humbug (for older children) no matter what the season. Check out the ride around the farm in the barrel train, pulled by a very cute little red tractor - the children are never going to want to leave!

And let's not forget what is going to make the grown ups happy - the beautiful accommodation. All of the cottages are full of character as they have been converted from the original farm buildings which date back to the 18th century. They have just recently been completely updated with new bedding, rugs, leather suites and large flat screen TV's & DVD players. All kitchens are well equipped with oven and hob, microwave, fridge or fridge freezer (some also have dishwasher ). There is access to a free DVD library with a good selection of grown up films and many children's favourites. Bed linen, towels and tea towels are all included together with cots, highchairs and stair gates (on request). Guests have the use of the shared laundry room. Well behaved dogs are welcome in some cottages.

Polean Farm offers the excellent option of being able to shop online and have your shopping delivered to the cottage - courtesy of Tesco OR by using a local service courtesy of Food4myholiday - have local quality food delivered to your cottage (and unpacked for you before you arrive). A babysitting service can also be arranged.


Within walking distance there is a quaint little fishing village, two good food shops, village pub and restaurant. Charming Looe (4 miles) boasts sandy beaches, good shops, galleries and restaurants and a bustling quayside. Sailing, fishing, surfing and golf are all easily accessible as are the Eden Project and numerous great houses and gardens. The nearby Monkey sanctuary is well worth a visit as is Charlestown Harbour, a 'working' 18th century port.
