BFB's Overview.

Friendly farm animals, an indoor heated pool, play rooms and ‘peace of mind’ baby packs are just some the best bits about Tregongeeves Farm near St Austell. Owners John and Judith have made it their mission to make holidays to their 7 cottages as stress free as possible, from providing a long list of baby and toddler gear to making sure kids have fun so parents can relax.

‘Down on the farm’ what better way to start that day than by helping Judith collect freshly laid eggs for brekkie and the welcome hamper also includes locally sourced bacon and sausages, milk, a Cornish cream tea and a Sunday newspaper. Besides getting to know the hens, children can feed apples to Crunchie and pickles the horses, brush the friendly donkeys and meet the portly piggies, Ruby and Ronnie.

When the sun is out, the lawns and play area beckons, with swings and a slide, plus parents can borrow racquets and balls for a set or two of tennis on the adjacent full size court. All the cottages also have their own outside patio or enclosed garden with a picnic table and a barbecue for eating outdoors.

No weather dampens the fun, thanks to an indoor heated swimming pool, a bubbly spa pool, a games room and new soft play room for under 5’s. Steps into the pool mean little ones can splash in the shallows and a play pen and bouncy baby chair can be set up at the side. The big games room has table tennis, a pool table and boxes of toys, games and puzzles for all ages, plus every cottage has its own box of toys, DVD’s to borrow and free Wi Fi for streaming favourite films and games.

The 7 cottages are cosy and modern, with unlimited central heating, high quality furnishings, well equipped kitchens, gleaming bathrooms and comfy beds for good nights’ sleep. Four of them have an upside down layout, with lovely pitched roof living rooms and one has a beautiful minstrel’s gallery with a romantic canopied bedroom under the eaves.

Accommodation overview
Tregongeeves Farm comprises 2 cottages for a couple with a baby (Corner Cottage and Swallows), 1 cottage that sleeps 3 plus a baby (Hedgerows), 3 cottages that sleep 4 plus a baby (Quakers, Lovedays and Gallery) and 1 cottage that sleeps 6 plus a baby (Donkey Mill).

Swallows (sleeps 2 + baby) is one of the four topsy-turvy cottages at Tregongeeves Farm, which has been designed so the lounge, dining area and kitchen has a cosy, open plan layout under the eaves, flooded with light through the skylights. There are plump sofas to flop into by the fire to watch the flat screen TV or DVD’s, or listen to music through the docking station, log into the free Wi Fi, or play with the toys and games provided. On the ground floor, the bedroom has a luxurious zip link bed that can be made up as a super king-size or twin beds. The gleaming ensuite bathroom has a bath and a walk-in shower. The cottage has a private patio area with a BBQ.

Location Information

Tregongeeves Farm is set in 22 acres of paddocks and pastures, down a winding country lane on the outskirts of St Austell. The pretty village of Polgooth is an easy 10-minute walk away, which has a handy village shop that sells yummy fresh croissants, and the traditional Polgooth Inn, serving Cornish real ales and great pub food. For golfers, St Austell Golf Club is just next door to the farm and guests get £10 off 18-holes.

The gorgeous Cornish coast is just 5 minute’s drive and the owners’ favourite beaches include Porthpean, Pentewan, Caerhays and Gorran Haven. For a traditional Cornish fishing village, Mevagissey is picture perfect and, at the other end of the spectrum, the happening surfer town of Newquay is 20 miles away, with is famous sandy bays, seaside frivolity and attractions like the Blue Reef Aquarium and Dairyland children’s farm, with a big indoor play centre.

The beauty of Cornwall is that no-where is very far away and many of the top attractions are right on our doorstep, including the world-famous Eden Project (3 miles) and the Lost Gardens of Heligan (4 miles). A little further afield, Flambards near Helston (1 hr) provides a fun day of theme park thrills as well as an indoor play zone for 1 to 11 year olds.

Whether in twee fishing villages or lively seaside towns, Cornwall has plenty to set the tastebuds tingling from a traditional peppery pasty to juicy crab sandwiches and creamy Cornish ice cream to clotted cream teas. Jamie Olivers’ Fifteen is at Watergate Bay, near Newquay and Rick Stein’s restaurants in Padstow (40 mins) have lead to the town becoming known as Padstein!
