Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays, Bodmin, Cornwall

Located to the north of rural Cornwall (driving distance to Bodmin, Padstow and Port Isaac), the 30-acre site Coombe Mill caters exceptionally well to the needs of families, young children especially.

This farm-based collection of self-catering cottages and lodges makes for a fantastic family holiday or break in the south-west, offering a great opportunity to spend quality time with your family, and friends, in the great outdoors. You can take part in the weekly activity programme designed for mums, dads and kids, exploring the farmland and all the animals, or join the daily tractor ride with the farmer to feed the animals. Children can also run wild in the mud garden, spend time in any of the three outdoor play areas, build a den and play on a giant trampoline (amongst many other outdoor activities available), whilst quality family time can be spent on the new crazy golf course. You don't even need to take your farming gear as there is a farm boot room where wellies and overalls, as well as wetsuits if you go for a dip in the river, are available to use.

Indoors (if the weather isn't to your favour), there is a play barn (for those aged 5 years and under), table tennis, games room, plus an area is provided where you can borrow toys, games and books to use back in your holiday property.

This farmstay collection of cottages and lodges are spacious and are well kitted out for families, and for extra safety when travelling with children, stair gates are built into all properties (top and bottom of the stairs) and many properties include their own playroom. And with all the outdoor space you could hope for, you can rest in peace the kids are getting fresh air in a safe and fun environment, plus they get to feed and tend to the farm animals. This really is a great place to enjoy some quality family time combined with an active holiday.


Coombe Mill is situated on the River Camel in North Cornwall. Bodmin (where the nearest train station is situated) is around 8 miles away and the typical Cornish fishing village of Port Isaac is less than half an hour's drive. Due to the rural location of Coombe Mill, the use of a car throughout your stay is essential to see and do as much as possible during your stay.
