“Great place for children and a peaceful atmosphere”
Reviewed 26 August 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Myself and my husband took our three year old here for a week as we thought she might like the farm. Not only did she love the animals and the fact she could feed them, she loved the plentiful garden toys and the toys and books provided in the cottage.
The cottage was lovely and clean with everything we needed. It was very quiet there which was lovely. We could have spent all week at the cottage as there was so much to do for our little girl, however, we didn't as there is plenty to do within easy drives of the farm.
The swimming pool is a nice extra. It has a cover over it to keep the heat in but this is very easy to remove and replace and is a good idea. It is reassuring to know there is a lock on the door so small children can't get in by accident. Use of a washing machine was handy and much cheaper than a laundrette! Nice to see an emphasis on recycling as well.
Melanie was lovely, always chatty and friendly and happy to answer any questions we had. She bought us some extra toys for in the cottage when we arrived and she realised our little girl was slightly older than she'd thought. Mike was also very friendly, we just didn't see him as often!
Overall, we were very pleased with the accomodation and the atmosphere there. We would recommend it to anyone with small children and I'm sure we'll be back (or our daughter will not be happy - she still mentions the farm and asks if we can go back, a couple of months after our stay).

“Excellent accommodation perfect for the children”

We had an amazing week on trevorick farm, the facilities were excellent and spotlessly clean. The children got to help with animals and the play facilities for them were excellent, the effort put in to accommodate us was evident, even down to toys in the cottage being of relevant age to our children. The indoor pool was excellent and the locatin of the farm was perfct. I would highly recommend, especially for families with children of any age.

“Enjoyable, friendly and relaxing”
Reviewed 27 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We have just come back from Trevorrick Farm after having a great week. Thanks to Melanie and Mike for their welcome and David for his help with getting out the guineapigs - I'm hoping that the kids forget about them soon...

The accommodation had everything you needed and there's loads for slightly older, but not yet teenage kids, to do although the farm is well set up for kids of all ages. The swimming pool was a big hit and plenty warm enough.

The beaches are wonderful and if you don't mind a few hills then take your bikes. Will definitely return some time.

The only minor downside was the wifi which was a bit haphazard, but this bothered the children more than it did us!

“Best family holiday ever!”
Reviewed 17 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

That's what our kids said and we have to agree with them. Arrived after a full days travelling Mike and Melanie were very welcoming, even though we were much later than expected. The children loved helping with the animals both in the morning and the evening, and although you could see and hear the animals throughout the day and evening they weren't intrusive. Nothing was a problem for Mike and Melanie, and Melanie in particular always stopped for a word when she passed you by. This area of Cornwall is spectacularly beautiful, and Trevorrick Farm is excellently located for access to the Camel Trail, both by foot and bike. The pool was clean and warm, and we all enjoyed a swim after a day out in the sunshine. Trevorrick was within reasonable driving distance to most of Cornwall (90 minutes to Lands End, less than an hour to Eden Project), allowing a good mix of days away and around the farm and Padstow. Facilities in the cottage were excellent, and the washing machines were reasonable and functioned well.

Overall, our holiday was everything we hoped, and more than we really expected. We would have no hesitation in recommending or returning to Trevorrick Farm.

“Toddler friendly - stunning location”
Reviewed 15 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Finally got round to writing this review! My partner and I stayed in Old Round House with our 2 year old in the first 2 weeks of June. It is a gorgeous little cottage with a perfectly safe and secure enclosed garden. Very well equipped with everything one would need for a 2 week break, like being a home from home. Lots of DVDs, videos, books. Melanie and Mike are quite unique in providing plenty of age related toys for little ones of all ages which I thought was wonderful. My little boy was thrilled when we arrived to find 3 boxes of toys and Melanie kindly set up the train set which was played with constantly thought out the holiday. If required The owners provide cots, a potty, baby baths, high chair and for our trip to St Michael's Mount we used a child carrier also provided in our cottage. Not only this, there are outdoor toys aplenty on the farm. We just missed the completion of the fabulous new climbing fame in the field adjacent to the cottage. The animals are a delight and were thrilled and very excited when I used to arrive with any leftovers food. We were certainly lucky to have the 3 little lambs living so close to our cottage and being able to help bottle feed them. Melanie was definitely their adopted Mummy and it was lovely to see them follow her when she took them to and from the fields. I was tempted to scoop them up and take them home with us when we left! The birds nesting in the Wash House, which was also where the Turkey chicks (2 days old when I arrived) lived added to the charm of Trevorrick. The views from the cottage and farm are stunning and it is truly somewhere I felt comfortable and relaxed. The WIFI was not too good, maybe routers would be ideal for each cottage? I also did not realise that I had to feed the washing machine meter. I can completely understand the Eco friendly ethos the owners promote here and treat the property as you would your own home. For example leaving it as you would expect to find it and think about the electricty etc you use. I did feel some pressure to keep it clean and tidy all the time but then I do keep my own home like this. Also when staying for 2 weeks, you are offered a change of bedding but you change the bed(s) yourself. Melanie and Mike were never too far away and always really friendly and helpful and Melanie I enjoyed our chats! Well don't all women?! We were very lucky to have stunning weather for 9 consecutive days so spent lots of unexpected days on the beach, mainly Trevone. The location is great for touring all of Cornwall with beautiful Padstow so close. Rick Stein's bistro was a special treat and worth a visit! My little boy is 2 and I think this is great place for young families. He settled in straight away and loved it here, as did his Mummy and Daddy. Thank you Melanie and Mike.

Absolute pleasure to have you stay and thank you for your lovely review. The "what's inside" section of each cottage page on the website states that the communal washing machines/tumbler drier are coin operated (in "The Wash House" so no noise in the cottage), so sorry that was missed by our guest. The cottage has it's own router in the loft, because of the characterful think walls. Our guest may have been affected by the intermittent internet problem - now hopefully fixed. I don't think we are any different from any UK cottage provider in our booking terms and conditions re leaving the cottage clean and tidy on departure. It is always very much appreciated. We will consider offering to remake beds midway for 2 week stays in 2014, but we have always felt guests prefer to have the cottage "to themselves" during their stay, but the feedback is appreciated. Hope to see you all again very soon!! Melanie xxx
