About Coombe Mill

An absolutely magical place to take youngsters on holiday.

Coombe Mill, a family farm holiday the children will cherish. Run by parents for parents this holiday is purpose built for children. The daily tractor and trailer ride to feed the many and varied farm animals are great fun, educational and sociable. With specially built indoor and outdoor play areas, woodland walks, free fishing and meadows besides, they will love their stay. The ‘honesty shop’ with home cooked meals, local produce and literature makes light of self-catering leaving plenty of time to explore and enjoy Cornwall.

The Away with the Kids review

Holiday properties range from a two bedroom cottage (with space for a cot or z bed) to five bedroom cottage sleeping 10 plus cots in a mixture of traditional old Cornish stone cottages and contemporary Scandinavian log cabins. All the Cottages and Lodges are well appointed and fully equipped. Tree Roots is a luxury holiday cottage with its own hot tub. Feel part of the family, the owners live here too on this beautiful estate with their 6 children who are always looking for new playmates to arrive! They are here to greet you and help you with anything you need during the week. Everything from babysitting to wellies is available, as they understand the needs of parents only too well!

Fun on the Farm

With 30 acres to explore and the magical morning tractor and trailer feed run under the watchful eye of farmer Nick the children will have the holiday of a lifetime. The morning 'feed run' is a wonderful chance to meet other families staying at Coombe Mill. They will have hands on experience with feeding everything from deer, donkeys, goats and sheep to chickens and rabbits. An egg to take back for breakfast and a turn at helping drive the tractor is always popular. Good to know that much of what they learn will also help them at playgroup and school. Try your hand at fishing in the course fishing lakes or in the river Camel that runs through the estate

What is there to keep the children busy

Quite simply you are going to have problems tearing the kids away from Coombe Mill for a day out. The animal feed run is such a highlight of the holiday but there is oddles of other things laid on for the kids to keep them amused. There are two outdoor play areas, one with ride on toddler trikes and tractors and the other with play fort, trampoline, swing, slide, bouncing board, zip wire and full size play tractor.  Across on the cottage lawn is another little tikes climbing frame with slide and an exciting pirate boat with slide. Great for imaginative play.  All the young children and toddler play areas are safely fenced making play time much more relaxing for parents. The indoor play barn is ideal for all weather fun. A safe, fully padded soft play area and separate indoor little tikkes climbing equipment for young children to enjoy. Coombe Mill have thier very own miniature railway taking children and parents round the pretty track each afternoon. The train times vary throughout the year. Join at the station and hop on board for a fun tour of the front gardens. Toot toot, listen out for Guy, the resident driver, with his whistle.

Things to do in Cornwall

If you can tear the kids away go out and explore the nearby moors, beaches, harbour towns and famous Eden project. Nearest beach is 10 minutes away in car but not accessable by pushchair. Nearest beach with pushchair access and parking facilities is 15 - 20 minutes by car. Cycle hire is available from Bodmin village and the famous Camel trail starts just 1 mile from Coombe Mill at Wenfordbridge where there is bike hire and a friendly cafe. From here the beautiful old railway track takes you 17 miles through woodland and estuary to Padstow via Bodmin and Wadebridge. Just up the road Hengar Manor have a lovely big indoor pool complex open to the public. There is a handy baby pool, fun slide in the main pool and Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room too; ideal for a wet afternoon. Cornwall is famous for its rocky outcrops known as Tors and Coombe Mill are lucky enough to have some very close by on Bodmin Moor. With breath taking views and rocky outcrops which the children love to climb and hide inside this was one of our favourite days out in Cornwall more suitable for older children.
