Polean is a family focussed farm-stay with heaps of fun farm activities, comfortable and cosy cottages and facilities to ensure that you have not only a child oriented holiday, but you grab some quiet grownup time too. The playground and indoor playroom will delight little ones. But for many the daily feeding of the animals, followed by pony rides or tractor rides for all ages is the best thing ever! The beach is just two miles away, as is the indoor heated pool.
Set in idyllic Cornish countryside, Polean Farm offers eight charming, quality holiday cottages just two miles from the coast, that can accommodate up to 12 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.
