"I am not normally one for farms, farm animals or…"
I am not normally one for farms, farm animals or dirt, (i'm sure you are getting the picture) but I have to say I had a lovely time.
We stayed for one week in Twinkles cottage and on arrival waiting for us were homemade scones, clotted cream and jam. Milk in the fridge, tea bags, coffee and sugar which was handy to have after a 6 hour journey and until you got to a supermarket.
The cottage was lovely and clean and well equipped. We were lovely and warm on cold nights, especially with the wood burner lit (logs purchased from the farm, 1st basket free) The kitchen/lounge was on the 1st floor giving views of the farm and the court yard area, so handy to watch the children.
The bedrooms were on the ground floor both having en suites. Bath towels were provided as well as all bed linen.
Every morning my son would meet Farmer Keith in the court yard and place the guinea pigs in their day pens, feed the lambs, chickens, goats and collect the eggs which we had for breakfast, yummy. My son also enjoyed the tractor and pony rides as well.
Farmer Keith was the kind of bloke that never seemed to have a bad day!!!. Absolutely brilliant with the children and parents.
Every night we had to get back to put the guinea pigs to bed.
We visited lots of places, Looe, St Ives, Padstow, Newquay, Eden Project, Flambards etc.
Went out most night for meals at local pubs.
I am pleased we went in February as we didn't have the traffic delays, parking issues and attraction queues which you may experience in the summer.
Make sure that you pack plenty of spare clothes for the kids and don't forget your wellies.
