About Poltarrow Farm Cottages

The cottages are extremely well presented with superb family facilities, everyone is going to have a wonderful time

With a backdrop of beautiful countryside, the 6 child friendly cottages are set around an open courtyard with gardens and ample parking. The cottages are extremely well presented each with their own individual charm and are fully equipped to be warm and cosy for any season. With an indoor pool, sports hall, tumble room, fishing and a farm trail, Poltarrow is ideal for fantastic family holidays. Centrally located on the beautiful South Coast of Cornwall, Poltarrow Farm offers a perfect central touring base for the rest of Cornwall. So many mouths waiting for their breakfast, then there’s eggs to collect, rabbits and guinea pigs, then across the field to the ducks on the pond – so don’t forget the wellies. Once a week, Kay is delighted to introduce you to Timmy the pony, for a ride Yeeha!

Arriving after a long journey you will find a warm welcome waiting for you in Cornwall with fresh scones and cream as well as emergency supplies such as bread, eggs, milk and cereals. The six self catering cottages are suitable for families sleeping up to a maximum of 6 plus cot. Surrounded by pleasant views of the countryside there are forty five acres of fields to explore, passing the pond with appleyard, call duck, mandarin and carolina ducks. If you can tear the little ones away from the fantastic child friendly facilites why not try a stroll through to the woodland - where children can benefit from getting close to the wildlife.

Facilities for Happy Kids and Parents too!

The sport and leisure facilities at Poltarrow have been especially created for guests of all ages. The swimming pool is ideal for little ones as it is heated to a constant 30 degrees celcius whatever the weather. For safety, access can only be obtained through a security system and is available to guests from 7am to 9.00pm. (except Saturday mornings when it is closed for cleaning). There's a soft play area specifically designed for the under 5's and an outdoor play ground. The large heated sports hall has a range of sports for most ages. Test your skills with a quiet game of short mat bowls or take a cue for a game of pool. Table tennis, short tennis and badminton can be good family fun. The owners have a shed full of bits and pieces which you can borrow, life jackets for safety on their lake, sun loungers, fishing nets, buckets, spades and even bicycles for the little ones.

Around and About Poltarrow Cottages & Cornwall

The owner Judith is an excellent host and is able to recommend local places to eat and things to do. St Austell itself is an excellent base to explore many attractions in Cornwall and is in close proximity to the award wining Eden Project. Whilst Poltarrow is in easy reach of St Austell it is far enough off the mail road to give peace and tranquillity.

There is also a Bed & Breakfast accommodation available for families at the farmhouse but only suitable for families with children over the age of five.
