Although so many of us Brits are keen on escaping the British climate for a much warmer one, the UK has so much to offer in terms of natural surroundings and traditionalism. We can’t guarantee good weather, but we can guarantee a good time and if you’re looking for family holidays Cornwall, then you’re in luck as we have many great places to show you, one of which is a child friendly farmstay at Polean Farm.
Polean Farm Cottages, Cornwall is made up of seven cottages, all of which has their own unique characteristics and style, but all with one thing in common; capturing a warm and welcoming farmstay. One of the selling points for family holidays Cornwall is that wherever you stay, you’ll be surrounded by stunning and picturesque countryside, whilst boasting a fabulous wildlife haven and of course, the Cornish coastline.
It will be impossible for the kids to get bored; farms and kids are the perfect combination, particularly child-friendly farms where the kids can feed and pet the animals. They will enjoy bottle feeding the adorable baby lambs, hand feeding the pygmy goats and chickens, collecting fresh chicken eggs to take home ready for breakfast the next morning, enjoying a ride on Noah, the farm’s pony, and relaxing on the barrel train. Did we mention that there’s also an adventure playground, an indoor playroom and toy tractors to ride on? Naturally, whilst they are so busy you can wind down, read a book, talk to one another (that should be novel!), whilst they play freely, probably with new friends.
There is a selection of DVDS from the free library in your cottage - watch a movie with your other half, or enjoy a family movie with the kids. If you don’t fancy staying in, you can explore the nearby fishing village, shops, restaurants and not forgetting the village pub! Or take a walk along the Cornish sandy beaches, explore the local galleries, take up sailing, fishing, surfing, golf or visit the Eden project. Oh, there’s also a monkey sanctuary nearby and the historic Charlestown Harbour, a 'working' 18th century Port. Phew - there is a lot to fit in - happy planning…
