The Away with the Kids review
Trevorrick Farm's location is idyllic - a gorgeous spot surrounded by countryside yet close to the pretty fishing port of Padstow and very handy for the stunning sandy surfing beaches that North Cornwall is renowned for. The cottages and on-site facilities, including an indoor heated swimming pool, are extremely well equipped for families with children of all ages and after a great day exploring the delights of Cornwall they are a welcome retreat to return to. Your welcoming hosts Melanie and Mike live in the Farmhouse, which also serves as a Bed and Breakfast. They have a young family so can share a wealth of knowledge with regards to where the best places to visit and the local child friendly restaurants.
The Holiday Cottages
Originally the farms outbuildings these beautiful Cornish stone barns have been sympathetically converted to six cottages grouped close to the owner's original farmhouse. With quality furnishings and comfortable beds they offer a ‘home from home' place to return to after a great day and can sleep a family of 2-4. All cottages apart from Curlew have log fires or wood burners in the living rooms with the first basket of logs provided free of charge. A selection of age appropriate toys and books are provided in your cottage. You will find everything you need in the well-equipped kitchens, but should you wish to relax even more, there are also two great pub/restaurants within one mile. Should you need a babysitting service, one can be arranged with prior notice. All the cottages have their own unique garden areas - mostly enclosed.
The 'Wash House' contains local tourist information, a pay phone and a coin operated washing machine and tumble drier.
The Farm Animals
At around 9am you can help Melanie with the grooming of the Shetland ponies, petting guinea pigs and rabbits and maybe collect eggs from the hens. To see the free-range Aylesbury ducks wandering past your cottage door is one of the delights of staying here. Saddleback pigs and a small herd of Dexter cattle complete the family.
Child Friendly Facilities and Swimming Pool
The family friendly cottages are very well equipped to cater for the needs of children from baby baths and potties to age appropriate toys chests, board games and videos. There is lots of grassy space in which little ones can let off steam and a unique giant Play combine harvester - certain to be a huge hit with the younger guests. The children's play area will occupy even the most active of little ones with swings, climbing frames, a giant trampoline and a playing field for ball games or flying a kite. There is also a heated indoor swimming pool and more games rooms.
For the days when the weather is not so kind there is the indoor games room kitted out with air hockey, snooker and table tennis for the teenagers and a treasure trove of dressing up clothes for little ones with a giant Little Tikes dolls house, train sets and constructions sets. There is a handy stash of wellies that are free to borrow from size 4 (baby) to 3 (child). A great bonus if you forget to bring your own as it avoids dirtying shoes whilst helping to feed the animals. There's also a very large video library with all the Disney classics, plus many old favourites for grown ups.
Melanie and Mike have thoughtfully provided a comprehensive stock of baby equipment as from their own personal experience they realise how much packing is needed when traveling with young children. From night-lights to bed guards and baby monitors to potties, the list seems endless. Cots and highchairs need to be requested on booking. There are also baby carriers provided for you to enjoy some of the most stunning walks in this area. The walk to Padstow is a 'must do', but best by carrier rather than buggy because of stiles, but you can drive to the Camel Trail from Trevorrick (along lanes) and 'buggy' into Padstow on the flat. There is also one larger pushchair and one lightweight buggy, to borrow on daily basis.
Trevorrick Farm falls within the Camel Estuary hot spot area for Barn Owls. The owners provide owl boxes within a barn and managing the land to encourage a sustainable environment for them. Should you be lucky you may be privileged enough to see the Barn Owls nesting.
Location and Things to Do in Cornwall
