About Coombe Mill Lodges

An absolutely magical place to take youngsters on holiday.

Escape to a beautiful idyllic family holiday spot on a Cornish private estate in North Cornwall. Coombe Mill is a hamlet of picturesque holiday cottages and lodges that are extremely child and parent friendly. The Scandinavian Lodges are contemporary and spacious holiday accommodation sleeping 4 - 8 with magnificent views across the valley. The main attraction is the fantastic interaction and hands on experience both children and adults alike can choose to partake in. The daily tractor round becomes the best start to the day especially if Farmer Nick picks you to help steer it! There are indoor and outdoor play areas, a gym, BBQ's outside and an indoor BBQ hut that fits approximately 15 people. Finish each day with a ride on the Coombe Mill Railway, a great way for children to meet up with their holiday friends after a day exploring Cornwall. With wildlife trails around the grounds and a weekly activity hour with crafts and games for children of all ages there is plenty here for all to enjoy from tiny tots to Grandparents. Look out for purpose built playrooms in many of the properties and super king size beds in some of our master bedrooms.

Holiday Accommodation

The Scandinavian Lodges stand proudly overlooking the farm with views towards the river. Designed for today's modern family Eden, Heligan, and Pencarrow are new contemporary and spacious properties. With luxury leather sofas and cosy wood burners for chilly evenings, the fixtures and fittings are of the highest specification including a modern fashionable kitchen with the latest home from home appliances. They sleep 7 or 8 in 3 - 5 bedrooms. All have en-suite master bedrooms and a separate family bathroom. The high ceilings, airy light feel, vast open plan living and beautiful setting make them some of Coombe Mill's most popular properties. Heligan also has its own designer playroom and toddler bedroom attached to the master bedroom. Pencarrow is due to benefit from this too in 2018. The Scandinavian lodges have ramped access, parking directly behind the property and downstairs bedrooms and bathroom, so are suitable for a partially disabled family member. A large enclosed decked veranda has tables and chairs to admire the view.

Polzeath, Trebah and Trevarno are smaller 2 bedroom lodges designed with smaller and younger families in mind. The two bedroom properties are refreshingly contemporary packed with mod cons. A truly modern, light and airy feel throughout with high ceilings and open plan kitchen-diner-living room. The feature wood burner, super king master bedroom and large upstairs play room give these holiday lodges their "wow" factor. All have beautiful views over the river and valley and are surrounded only by lawns and woods ensuring tranquil peace and quiet. Each lodge has its own sunny veranda complete with garden furniture and private garden to relax and take full advantage of the glorious backdrop.
