Coombe Mill: A traditional family holiday

25/06/2015 16:40

The greatest compliment that I can pay Coombe Mill is that it allows children to be children and it forces families to be families. Remember your own childhood, or traditional stories of a world that wasn't so wrapped up in technology and phone screens? Remember falling over, playing outdoors, paddling in streams and going on imaginary adventures? Remember skimming stones, rolling in the grass and swinging from climbing frames? Remember just being allowed to be a child and enjoy your surroundings? Coombe Mill not only allows you and your children to do this, but it practically forces you to. In the middle of nowhere and feeling seperated from the outside world, a short break here allows your family to play, relax and bond in a glorious setting.

As well as traditional playtime, we rode trains, tractors, made friends with and fed a variety of farm animals, enjoyed picnics, BBQ's and bounced on trampolines; We toured the harbour towns and countryside of Cornwall, ate and drank traditional treats from Britains food capital and marvelled at scenes straight out of an Enyd Blyton story. We had the best week at Coombe Mill, and can't thank Fiona, Nick and their family enough for their warm hospitality. We'll definitely be back... it's just a matter of when!


Check out a short video to get a real insight of just how good our week was:

I'm so jealous of your visit. We are really hoping we get to visit Coombe Mill sooner rather than later x

We stayed at Coombe Mill last year and were so impressed with the farm, Fiona, Nick and the kids. It was a brilliant experience and you are so right in your descriptions. We're hoping to go back next year! #CountryKids

Coombe Mill does look quite fabulous from Fiona's blog and this has endorsed everything that I see over on the Blog. I'm hoping we can get ourselves organised and pop along to Coombe Mill soon
Lovely review

I only had a small taste of Coombe Mill when we stopped off on our way back from Cornwall but even that made me think I'd like to book a longer visit some day. Sounds like you had a wonderful time.

Such a delight to welcome you all to the farm and know I have a family staying who really appreciated the simplicity of what we offer, the chance to let kids experience the things we oldies did as children and to be at one with nature. It was a pleasure getting to know you all a little and watching your eldest grow in confidence during the week. Thank you for such a wonderful write up of your time with us, I couldn't ask for more and feel sure I'll see you all back here again one day. Post's don't get more Country Kids than this, thanks for linking up.
