Thinking about the summer holidays at Coombe Mill in Cornwall

Now the nights have drawn in, leaves are all over the ground and the temperature has dropped, the summer holidays feel like a long time ago now.

We went to Cornwall and had a really lovely week in the warm sunshine.  We stayed at the very lovely Coombe Mill in St. Breward.  Coombe Mill provides family farm holidays in a quiet and secure feeling environment.

The site itself is lush and green, with loads to do for kids.  There are well equipped outside parks and indoor facilities too.  Our daughter loved the ride on tractor outside the reception lodge!

The site itself is lovely and spacious, a far cry from the crowded back to back holiday parks that are dotted all over Cornwall.  The stream at the bottom of the site sounds a lovely bubbly running water backdrop all day - so peaceful. 

There is so much space to run around outside.  Our two also loved the tractor ride which runs every morning and meant they could see and feed all the farm animals.  It got me walking too, and husband had a quiet hour to himself

We stayed in the lovely Trevarno lodge, which was really comfortably equipped and was easily big enough for the four of us.  With a family bathroom and ensuite, plus large lounge and top floor massive playroom, it was an ideal home from home. 

I really appreciated the space and kitchen facilities which meant we could happily stay in and cook and share our meal on the veranda outside.

The kids stayed in the twin bedroom which easily housed toddler girl's travel cot too.  Both rooms had spacious wardrobes and the beds were all super comfy!

We had a really lovely holiday that we all desperately needed.  We went off exploring Cornwall loads, and Coombe Mill was ideally centrally based for us to do this.  The farm had loads to do too, but most off all the friendly welcome, lovely space, fresh air and quiet times resulted in a wonderful relaxing break.

We'll be going back next year, for sure.
