"Best Family Holiday Ever!!…"
Stayed in The Parlour-clean,well equipped family accomadation. The site has a pool, play area and animals. It is an ideal base for the local tourist attractions. Overall I would highly recommend Court Farm and its surrounding areas.Read moreLess
"Excellent for toddlers…"
We loved Court Farm. Visiting and feeding the animals in the morning was great fun for our 19 month old. The beach was nearby. Plenty to do and see. And when it was raining the indoor pool at the farm was a great retreat. The catering service was awesome, after a long drive on our first day we found a home made tagine and fruit crumble waiting for us when we arrived. Not sure what these guys could do better...maybe more sunshine!Read moreLess
"Fantastic Holiday for Young Families…"
We have just returned from a fabulous week in Court Farm Holidays Wheelwright Cottage and I felt the need to share this gem! The cottage itself was beautifully kept with really good quality furnishing (including blackout blinds and stairgates). The cottages are in a lovely village, but only 5 minutes drive to Bude centre and less to the nearest Supermarket.
In addition they have shared access to large play area with plenty of outside toys (including a covered section for rainy days), a swimming pool and some animals (pigs, chickens and alpacas) that the children can go and feed (and collect eggs for breakfast). Babysitting, catering, massage services can all be booked and many useful items (monitors, buggies, wetsuits etc) are available for hire.Read moreLess
"AMAZING place for a family holoday…"
We recently stayed here with our 3 yr old and 18 month old. it was our first holiday as a family of 4. Booked it after reading all the positive reviews on here and we were not disappointed. I echo the comments others have made; swimming pool is grea, accommodation is of a very high standard, the outside play area is great. Having spa treatments on site is a good extra. I am VERY fussy about cleanliness and this was one of fe places I have visited that I havn't wanted to clean on arrival! It was immaculate. Our children loved the outside space and played out there happily for hours giving me and DH some time to relax ( while watching them of course!). We will be back, this isn't a cheap holiday but it is a good one. Happy children = happy parents and out children can't wait to go back.Read moreLess

"Great family-friendly place to stay…"
We stayed in one of the cottages which looked exactly as depicted on the website (unusual for alot of holiday sites). I should not have bothered with the supermarket delivery as initial supplies of essentials were provided e.g. supplies of dishwasher tablets,washing-up liquid.
The children have something to do each morning with the animal feeding and egg collecting and each evening with the indoor heated swimming pool.
I was at first a little disappointed to find our cottage was close to the local pub, however, we ate there three times in a week and apart from families eating it was exceptionally quiet and no noise at all was heard.
I would recommend hiring lots of extra towels for all the swimming and taking 50ps for the tumble drier.Read moreLess

Very child friendly, lovely accommodation and the heated swimming pool was brilliant. The play area is large and well equipped. Animal feeding is quite limited but my little ones loved it anyway! RecommendedRead moreLess

"Another fabulous week at Court Farm...it really is the most…"
Another fabulous week at Court Farm...it really is the most fantastic place for young families. The playground, indoor pool and animal feeding kept our 2 girls, 6 and 4 completely entertained which meant a very restful holiday for us. We stayed in the 2 bed barn conversion, Parlour which has incredibly comfortable beds, is very tastefully decorated and has everything you need. The pub opposite does fantastic food and is really welcoming. The local area is beautiful and we spent hours messing around on various beaches. The owners are great hosts, and nothing seems too much trouble. We will definitely be booking again.Read moreLess
"We've just returned from a wonderful week staying at Court…"
We've just returned from a wonderful week staying at Court Farm.
We stayed in the Hayloft and the accommodation was perfect for our needs.
We have a 4 year old and a 2 year old and having a booster seat, bed guard, children's cutlery, plates, cups, toys, books & dvds all provided helped for easy packing.
We new if the children had a great holiday then so would we and that is exactly what happened.
Our children loved the play area with all the sit on toys, trampoline and swings. We all loved the swimming pool and the real highlight of the week was being able to feed the animals.
Our accommodation was clean, tidy and well laid out as was Court Farm.
We were warmly welcomed by the owners and felt looked after all holiday.
We also both had a lovely massage with Vicky which was a real treat!
If you are looking for a relaxing, child friendly holiday then this is the place, we can't wait to go back!Read moreLess
"A great house and location for a large family gathering.…"
A great house and location for a large family gathering. Lovely rooms and kitchen/diner. We had a relaxing and fun weekend celebrating my mother-in-law's 80th birthday earlier in October. There is a 10-15 minute walk straight from the farmhouse to a lovely unspoilt beach just outside Bude. A few of the more rugged types even braved the sea (for a few minutes)! We also arranged for a local outside caterer, recommended by Court Farm Holidays, to prepare a special diner for 15 in the house to mark our celebration, which was excellent.Read moreLess
"Fantastic. We read the reviews and managed to get a…"
Fantastic. We read the reviews and managed to get a last minute week in the Cheastnut. Can't really add much more to the other reviews other than the spa in the garden topped it off for us! We leave at the end of this week - boo. DH and DS 18 months and I have really loved it so far.Read moreLess
"We rented the Parlour, a two bedroom cottage with fantastic…"
We rented the Parlour, a two bedroom cottage with fantastic facilities. Lots of kids books and dvds available and lovely child proof furniture. The boys aged 1 and 4 had an amazing time and cryed most of the way out of Devon when we left. Its a fantastic facility,the swing park is well maintained with a huge range of toys and even a summer house and shed to play in when the weather is wet. The animal feeding is just lovely and stuff of holiday memories to see a 1 year old feeding and alpaca and pig. The treatment rooms are lovely and Vickys massages are light and airy. The hawian lomi lomi massage is AMAZING, like nothing I have ever experienced before in a spa. Even the cold weather worked to our advantage as we spent so much time in the pool (and with the fantastic lessons from Rosie) our 4 year old is now swimming like a fish on his own in only 3 lessons. Number 1 child summed up our week to Rosie with " mummy has mummy time with vicky and dad has daddy time when I am asleep at the pub and I have fun in the pool. Who could aske for anything more
Oh and the pub does great carry out food and handy containers of beer and lovely cider. With so much to do at the end of the garden its hard to drag yourselves away from court farm and see the rest of the area.Read moreLess
"Wow. What a fantastic way to spend a weekend. I…"
Wow. What a fantastic way to spend a weekend.
I have never felt more relaxed in such a short space of time, ever. The surroundings are so picturesque and the fresh air nearly knocked me off my feet!
Head to Bude for a great walk along the canal, then into town to browse the nick-nack shops.
Even if you stayed 'in', the log fire and the massive telly would keep you company. Go swimming with the kids, or play table tennis or pool (without the kids, just in case things get out of hand!) - or best of all try the trampoline which I hadn't done for over 20 years (best not to do it after a big lunch like me though!).
Even the dog had a great time!
We had an amazing dinner on the Saturday night, brought in by the caterers - you have to try the chicken liver pate as it was absolutely divine, the mains and desserts were even better.
Try to go easy on the wine as going to see the very cute piglets and chickens with a hangover isn't wise. And you probably think you're imagining the pair of alpacas, but trust me they are actually there!
And don't forget your wellies like I did...
The staff were so friendly, and just about anything you needed would be taken care of.
The only thing that could make this place better is a longer weekend - so next time we'll be staying for a week.Read moreLess

"We stayed here as it was near family we were…"
We stayed here as it was near family we were visiting and it was a last minute decision, but we are so glad we did it, it was myself, husband and my 2yr old daughter, and the place was lovely, quiet sweet little village with a wonderful pub opposite the farm (lovely food) the cottage was decorated to a very high standard, and was very clean and cosy.
the swimming pool was a lovely temperature and even had a selections of rubber rings and inflatables for kids. play area was fully stocked with toys, little houses, cars etc.
the beaches near by are stunning, and plenty too choose from. the owners are very helpful and friendly, one morning we were in the play area and he took us with him to feed the animal, which our daughter loved as the little pigs were following her, we then collected eggs which we then all had for breakfast the following morning.
Highly reccommend it for anytime of the year, as its such a beautiful coast, and cosy farm.
They also offer eveything from kids wetsuits hire, buggys, bed gaurdsa, monitors etc. just great for parents as they have thought of everything.
Just incase it couldn't get better they also offer spa treatments at a very reasonable price.Read moreLess
"We just got back from a gloriously sunny March week…"
We just got back from a gloriously sunny March week (!) at Court Farm with our 2 year old boy and 4 month old girl, and we couldn't be happier with the place. Everything is spot on - the accommodation is very nicely done, spacious and luxurious with all mod cons, and everything you could possibly need for the kids is already there (blackout blinds, bed bumpers, very nice cots - lovely wooden ones not travel cots, toys, books, dvds, prams...the list goes on).
The stars of the show though have to be the indoor swimming pool and the animals. The pool is lovely, really really warm and perfect for babies and toddlers. Definitely no need for wetsuits! It's also really big and has loads of armbands, inflatables etc available for guests to use.
The animals are located just 50 yards down a track from the playground (also excellent, trampolines plus the usual stuff and an indoor play area). Every day at 9.30 Kevin or Vicky take anyone who wants to down to feed the pigs, chickens and al pacas, although you're welcome to go down there under your own steam whenever you like. The baby pigs are very friendly and just hilarious, our boy is still talking about them now.
The best thing about Court Farm is that you never feel disappointed that you have to head back to base (like you so often have to do with kids for naps, feeds, changes etc). Quite often we spent the morning out, came back for lunch and spent the afternoon swimming, trampolining and collecting eggs for breakfast - all rounded off by a civilised pint in the excellent and very child-friendly pub right over the quiet road.
Highly recommended!Read moreLess
"We have just returned from a fabulous family holiday at…"
We have just returned from a fabulous family holiday at Court Farm with our 2 boys, 15 months and 4 years. We could not have chosen a better place to go. On arrival we were shown to our cottage (Lilac) a lovely pretty 2 bed cottage, which had everything already set up for us and our boys. Including plastic crockery and cutlery, a high chair, booster seat, stair gate and a lovely wooden cot for our youngest. The boys were also delighted to find a large toy box in their bedroom with books, puzzles, soft toys and trucks. So much more interesting than the toys we brought with us. We really appreciated the kids DVDs too, lovely as a wind down at the end of the day. The cottage had a lovely garden but we used the large play garden with swings, play houses, numerous ride ons and a large enclosed trampline which our eldest adored. We used the heated pool everyday, the first pool our boys have been in and by the end of the week our eldest was out of wings and our youngest was happily bobbing about in water wings only. We didn't need to bring our own pool kit as Court Farm has everything, from wings (our boys prefered theirs, not ours), rings, balls, floats and noodles (loved the noodles!). We fed the animals most mornings, collected eggs which we had for breakfast the next day. Borrowed wellies and buckets and spades and collected shells from the local beaches and had a lovely meal at the Bay View (as recommnended by Court Farm). All in all a wonderful break with our boys and we will DEFINATELY be back.Read moreLess

"We had a weekend break in the Chestnut at Court…"
We had a weekend break in the Chestnut at Court farm. The cottage was great, a home from home. We really enjoyed using the hot tub in the garden and having a pool and games room on site was great for entertaining the kids. The welcome was very friendly and my kids thought it was great that they could go and feed the pigs and chickens. We would highly recommend this cottage and we will be going back!Read moreLess
"My husband, son and I have just had a wonderful…"
My husband, son and I have just had a wonderful break - our first in the UK (apart from at my parents) - and recommend Court Farm to all new parents. We were able to check in earlier than 3pm to coincide with nap time, which was a huge plus to the start of our holiday. Thank you Kevin.
Things only got better from there on in. We stayed in Parlour in the week before 1/2 term - it was beautifully quite and peaceful. The cottage was warm and comfortable. Kevin toddler proofed a couple of the kitchen units that we just could not keep our son out of and provided an extra thick rug for the slate floor (we have a rather busy and tripable 16 month old!). Kevin also looked at the bathroom window (on a sunday) for us when we couldn't shut it properly - thank you Kevin for giving up your day off!
The communal courtyard was a lovely space for my 16 month old to explore. Just off that was Vicky's treatment room - I recommend the hot rocks massage particularly if its cold outside! Vicky has a warm and welcoming manner and it was not long before I found myself drifting off and relaxing during her massages. I would recommend as many as you can fit in... its not often you have massage access on your doorstep!
Other welcome additions to our holiday...warm in-door pool, fresh (son collected) chicken eggs, home cooked food that was truely yummy, extra buckets and spades for the beach, toddler package that included buggy and backpack, own parking spot and pub opposite!! I couldn't recommend this place more and hope we will get the opportunity to return.Read moreLess

"Have just come back from a weekend at Honeysuckle Cottage,…"
Have just come back from a weekend at Honeysuckle Cottage, Court Farm. Absolutely brilliant.
We stayed at Court Farm many years ago pre kids and it was good then, but they've worked really hard to bring it right up to date and make it really really easy to take kids there. My husband disappeared off first thing to go surfing and left me with no car, 2 kids and 1 dog to entertain for the day....we had a fab time, the outdoor play area was great with loads of toys and an weatherproof area too, there are gorgeous fields with chickens, alpacas and sheep and a swimming pool, which was great to bribe the children with for good behaviour until their dad got home to help out with swimming.
One of the things I really liked about it was that it was really chilled out, sometimes when you go and stay in quality places in the UK it's lovely but it all feels a bit like Disneyland, not very real and a bit forced. Court Farm is really down to earth, with enough luxuries to make it super comfortable but not so posh that I felt worried about settling in and making myself feel at home.
Despite the disappearing husband, we had a great time and we're planning on going again in a few weeks. We've tried a lot of self catering places in the UK and I couldn't recommend this one more highly.Read moreLess

"We've just come back from a wonderful holiday at Court…"
We've just come back from a wonderful holiday at Court Farm. There were 2 adults, 1 toddler and 1 baby and we stayed in the farmhouse. I can't wait until we can go again & I would recommend Court Farm to anyone. It's a wonderfully relaxing farm that is completely geared up for babies and children.For those wanting lively action, Court Farm is just a few minutes up the road from the buzz of Bude, with it's gorgeous beaches, fun surf boutique-y shops, and all-year holiday feel. And for those wanting a quiet & relaxing break, I can't honestly imagine anywhere better than the sleepy Cornish village/hamlet of Marhamchurch.
Court Farm was the perfect place for our toddler - she loved the animals, the toys, the pool, the trampoline, the wendy house, the playground, the other little ones to play with... the list goes on! Kevin and Vicky made us feel really welcome and succeeded in providing a warm home-from-home environment. Think: customised toy box delivered to your door within an hour of arriving; cupboards already stocked up with plastic bowls, cups etc. for toddler's dinnertime; cots erected and placed in the right rooms ready for naps/bed on arrival etc.... Nothing was too much trouble, and all the little extra baby and toddler equipment provided in the house, meant that our packing was minimal which was such a bonus! We even had our shopping delivered as we arrived to make our lives even easier - and if you're not familiar with the Cornish hospitality, the delivery service will give you a great intro. I wish they were that friendly when they pull up in their van at home!
Court Farm does exactly what it says on the tin: cosy for couples and terrific for toddlers. It's like the best bits of a pre-baby holiday (treatment room (with AMAZING massage therapist by the way - if you go, you MUST book with Vicky!), indoor pool, cosy fireplaces, quiet and relaxing surroundings etc.), mixed in with the best facilities for babies and toddlers. A genius mix. Take the pool for example... it's like stepping into a warm bath - absolutely perfect for little ones, and the owners make a big effort to keep the air temperature really warm too, so there's no tears when the kids get out.
One last little tip - if your children want a change of scene on the playground front, or if you just fancy a little stroll, there's another good playground in the village, about 2 mins slow walking away. Oh, and you must go to "Life's A Beach" in Bude - a really lovely beach-side restaurant that warmly welcomes children, and has fab views. Happy Holiday!Read moreLess

"We have just had a wonderful holiday staying in the…"
We have just had a wonderful holiday staying in the Granary at Court Farm. The owners want you to feel like you are in a 'home-away-from-home' and it really was that good. The house was perfect with a good, modern kitchen. The owners provided us with highchair, booster seat, cot, toys and DVDs, which meant packing was easy peasy. The house is situated round a courtyard so the children could very easily and safely go and play with other children - they adored it. The playground is well equipped, particularly for children aged 4 and under. We adults loved batting a ball on the tennis court while the littlies played in the adjacent playground - we could keep a proper eye on them.
The local area is fantastic. We had glorious weather which meant that we hardly used the pool (which is perfect for toddlers, very warm). There are brilliant local beaches, especially Northcot (?) and Sandy Mouth (don't go to either at high tide +/- 2 hrs - pebbles only at the top) and Widemouth Bay.
Hartland Point has a lovely 2 mile circular walk which was fine for our 3 year old (we carried the 1 year old most of the way).
The Camel Trail bike ride from Wadebridge to Padstow is good but it does take 45 mins to drive there.
We didn't get a babysitter but probably should have.
We asked Nicky Vereker to cook for us 3 nights and the food was fantastic and reasonably priced.
I have no hesitation in recommending this holiday to anyone with young children and its likely that we will go again.Read moreLess
"Fantastic place. Stayed in the 6-bed Farmhouse in March for…"
Fantastic place. Stayed in the 6-bed Farmhouse in March for 4 nights - three couples, three 3 year olds and three babies. The owners were lovely and very helpful and the facilities on the farm were great. We used the indoor pool virtually every day and the kids loved the play areas especially all the different ride-on toys and the little houses; the pigs and alpacas were popular too! We were provided with cots, high-chair, booster seats, stair gate and even lent a toy box and children's dvds, which was great service! Generally the Farmhouse was very nicely done-up, however as another reviewer has said, there were some areas that probably needed a bit of freshening up.
The location couldn't be better, a couple of miles from Bude and not much further from some other gorgeous beaches. Even though the weather wasn't great we kitted the kids out in waterproofs and built sandcastles in the rain and they loved it! Bude also has a good soft play facility, Harlequinns, which we went to when it was raining.
What also made our holiday was the catering service provided by Nicky Vereker; we used her for 3 evenings and her food was gorgeous and meant that we could all relax after a hectic day and the stresses of putting 6 kids to bed!
Would definitely come back again and recommend it to friends.Read moreLess
"For our first family holiday, my husband and I scoured…"
For our first family holiday, my husband and I scoured the net trying to find a suitable destination. We didn't fancy flying anywhere with our 7 month old daughter so decided to book Court Farm in Cornwall. This was a brilliant decision! The accomodation was fantastic, the facilities were perfect and the owners couldn't do enough to help make our stay the best family holiday we could have asked for. We will definitely be returning next year and would recommend anyone else to do the same!Read moreLess
"We stayed on Court Farm in Marhamchurch with our 13…"
We stayed on Court Farm in Marhamchurch with our 13 month old DD in October 2008. This was our second holiday with her but the first one to somewhere unfamiliar. We chose it because it was a late deal and had space in the dates we needed to go. We stayed in Chestnut cottage, one of the larger, more contemproary properties, and one with a hot-tub in the garden, which didn't bother me at booking but once we were there it made a wonderful relaxing treat under the stars once DD had gone to sleep.
It was just fantastic and provided just about all we needed.
Chestnut had ample space and three bedrooms of which we used the small box room for our cases and bits and pieces. The lounge/diner had lots of light and our little one had a great time looping the downstairs in crawling heaven. The kitchen was well equipped for self-catering and the local farm shops provided us with the ingredients for all meals eaten "at home". The kind owners provided us with stairgates, high-chair etc.
We never made it to the acclaimed pub across the way which can provide food to eat in or take-away as we enjoyed popping into the farm shop on the way home from each day outing. Next time we will though.
Friends of ours also got late availability a couple of weeks later and suggested that the more traditional cottages were needing freshening up, but I think the owners are constantly updating all the properties to keep up the high standard.
The swimming pool was a good size and temperature, clean and welcoming and it was easy to find times where it was not too busy.
The children's play area was well equipped for all ages and our one year old loved the baby swing. Our property did have a good enclosed garden but we spent more time in the play area because of DD's age and the time of year.
There was all the information anyone could want for local places of interest and we explored the local beaches near Bude, went for a very picturesque walk down to Northcote beach (National Trust), and local walks along the coastal path. We ventured on a day outing to the slightly further afield (hour's drive) and wonderfully landscaped RHS gardens at Rosemoor where the leaves were in Autumn splendour and there was lots for our little one to look at space to practice walking with help.
We had a heatwave on our departure weekend with temperatures hitting higher than the summer, and we called off at Woolacombe Bay for a family-friendly pub lunch and DD's first paddle on our way home.
So despite taking until October to have our summer holiday, Court Farm Holidays gave us a vacation as sunny and happy as we could get in the UK in October.
We hope to go again this year.Read moreLess
"We (me, my husband & our 3 children aged 7…"
We (me, my husband & our 3 children aged 7 yrs, 3 yrs & 9 mths) have today (14.03.09) returned home from a wonderful week at Court Farm in Marhamchurch in Cornwall.
We stayed at Sycamore Cottage which is one of the beautifully decorated, contemporary cottages. Sycamore, like Chestnut & Southpark all have private enclosed rear gardens with a 6 seater hot tub in each - perfect for families with children as it gives us Mum's & Dad's some great relaxation time in the evening whilst staying in with the children. This really helped us to feel like we had actually been on holiday instead of it feeling like we were just at home spending a normal evening in watching TV....!
The Cottage itself was excellent with good quality appliances (washing machine, dish washer, family sized fridge freezer etc...) and every room was spotless and beautifully presented.
The cottage was brilliant for our children - there were books for our 7 year old to read and dvd's that they enjoyed watching on the huge 42" lcd TV.
I asked for the cottage to be made toddler friendly which was great as we were given a stairgate for the bottom of the stairs (in addition to the integrated stairgate at the top)& a bed guard in case we needed it! I had also asked for a highchair & cot (no charge) which were set up for us in the cottage. We were given a good quality reclining highchair & a seperate booster seat which could be set up at the kitchen table. I really liked the fact that we were given the choice so that you can use whichever one your baby is used to! These little touches were brilliant & really thoughtful - you could tell that Kevin Trewin is a Dad with young children!
We borrowed a baby monitor & child back-pack which were excellent & saved us bringing all child related paraphernalia (you can also borrow a 3 wheeler buggy).
The Swimming pool was great - our children could have happily spent the whole week just in there! We would love to come back in the summer & swim with the roof pulled back!
The location is great for Cornwall & Devon and being central in the lovely village of Marhamchurch was very convenient for dashing across to the local shop!
We loved everything about Court Farm & the lovely friendly way in which we were made to feel welcome by the Trewin's.
We will definitely be coming back for our family holidays year after year from now on!Read moreLess
"We stayed here last September and thought it was great.…"
We stayed here last September and thought it was great. It was a last minute deal we booked and we were chuffed to bits. The accomodation was good and the fact that they supplied high chair/stair gates etc was a bonus. The pub opposite does take out as well as being family friendly. The besat thing of all was the play area - undercover bit for kids with wendy house etc, plus lots of ride on toys, swings/swlide/trampoline/tennis courts and a lovely warm swimming pool with a sliding cover so it can be pulled back on sunny days. The local beach @ Bude wasn't that great, but there is a fab one a couple of miles outside and many others. Padstow is also in strioking distance. We would recommend this to friends and would stay there againRead moreLess
"This is an amazing find! We spent a wonderful few…"
This is an amazing find! We spent a wonderful few days in January in a fabulous cottage which is one of many at Court farm, near Bude. The interiors were spotless and really well equipped for children of any age, plus tastefully decorated with a real 'cottage' feel to them. There are so many facilities to keep everyone amused such as a really warm, shallow indoor pool, a huge garden full of kiddies play stuff and full tennis court, plus trampoline. Two of the cottages even have their own hot tubs in their gardens which made our winter break much warmer! They even have beauticians on site for relaxing treatments!
The owners are so friendly and helpful and their website is very informative and easy to use. The village has a shop and lovely pub across the road too, as well as babysitters available for a few hours escape! The beaches are 5 mins drive away and great for surfing, sand castle building and rock pooling, this stretch of coastline is beautiful. The Eden Project is less than an hour away and well worth a day trip. Court Farm is definitely somewhere that we'll come back to visit again.Read moreLess
"We have been staying at Court Farm Cottage Holidays in…"
We have been staying at Court Farm Cottage Holidays in Marhamchurch for the past 6 years and couldn't imagine staying anywhere else. From the warmest of welcomes from Kevin and Mary Trewin, the hot tub in the back garden, the superb children's facilities and the fabulous location it all adds up to an idyllic place to take your holiday.
Marhamchurch is ideally placed to explore the rugged North Cornwall Coast, being a beautiful quiet village yet only 1 mile from the A39 and 10 minutes drive from the sandy beaches at Bude.
There is everything you need at Court Farm should you not wish to venture far. My 2 children love the heated indoor swimming pool and the trampoline. There are plenty of garden toys for my toddler to play with and an indoor games room for rainy days.
The village shop is friendly and well stocked and the local pub is child friendly and serves fabulous food.
The accommodation has been upgraded over the last couple of years and can only be described as a luxurious home from home. There is every mod con including the all important Cbeebies on the freeview! You don't even need to take a pushchair for your little one as cots, highchairs and pushchairs can be requested in advance. There are gas bbqs which are free to use and even a beauty therapist who visits every week if you can't do without your facial or massage! If you can't raise the energy to cook after a lazy day at the beach then you can also order freshly prepared home cooked food to be delivered..bliss.
The larger cottages have breathtaking views of the Cornish Countryside down to Widemouth Bay. We stayed in 'Southpark' Cottage in May and spent most of our time gazing out at the vista. The courtyard cottages are converted from farm buildings and are full of character.
After 6 years of taking our holidays here we have never been at a loss for things to do. There are some fabulous walks which start in the village, if you go you must take the canal path walk into Bude. It's utterly gorgeous although you might be forgiven for stopping at the tea rooms at the edge of the village for an unrivalled cream tea!
My 2 year old still goes on about 'the holiday house' and my 8 year old regards Court Farm as her second home.
The service and welcome you will receive from the owners, the Trewins will all add to making a holiday at Court Farm one of the most memorable you could have.
If you are considering a holiday in the South West then you must look at Court Farm Cottages. We would never look anywhere else.
