Tredethick is one of BFB's most popular locations and draws families back year after year. It's the kind of place that is as exciting and enthralling for little ones as it is relaxing and indulgent for parents.

Designed for families, at Tredethick, no matter the weather, guest ages or personalities, indoors or out, there's always plenty to keep everyone happy and occupied. From animals to feed, ponies to ride, places to play, a pool to discover, new places and new friends to see and make, all in beautiful, secluded, Cornish countryside. It is a little bit of family heaven!

All eight country/contemporary-style cottages are within a minute’s walk of the family-friendly indoor pool, soft play (with daily newspapers and Lavazza coffee for the grown ups), play park and games room with huge sandpit, table tennis and pool table. There’s a luxurious hot tub garden for parents seeking peace and an idyllic farm trail threading through woodland and fields to the Fowey river estuary. For little ones, animal feeding is usually the highlight of the day. Lifelong memories are made with lambs to bottle feed, ponies to ride, eggs to collect, goats to stroke and pigs, alpacas, rabbits and more.

The stylish cottages have a contemporary rural feel and are designed to be as baby and toddler friendly as possible. Lifting the latch on any front door and guests will find a wonderfully inviting space. Squashy sofas, comfortable beds, a powerful shower and relaxing bathtub. There are fluffy white bathrobes – great for impromptu trips to the hot tub, iPod docks and free WiFi. Most of the cottages have log fires, and all are centrally heated, so families can be nice and toasty when arriving home from a walk or a dip in the pool. All the cottages have pretty terraces and barbecues.

For those who don't feel like cooking, and who does on their holidays, there's a brilliant 24hr farm shop, which runs on an honesty-box system, and is stocked yummy treats such as organic Cornish ice cream, ice lollies, apple juice, jams and honey, as well as COOK luxury ready meals. There’s a well-stocked DVD library in the farm shop too.

Accommodation Overview

Scantlebury: This sunny cottage has recently been updated and sleeps 2/3 in 1 double bedroom and 1 gallery single above the large living area (ideal for guests aged 10 or above). The courtyard benefits from morning sunshine making it ideal for outdoor breakfasts or, during the summer months, a lovely spot to relax with a glass of wine once any little ones are safely tucked up in bed. The master bedroom is a haven for parents with a large double bed and a sunny position. Scantlebury's bathroom has a wood panelled bath and separate power shower. All the heating and hot water for the cottages and pool complex is via a new Biomass boiler fuelled by Elephant grass, which is grown on site. Also a wind turbine supplies much of the electricity.

  • The perfect place to take a toddler Daily animal feeding indoor and outdoor play areas Hot tub and in door heated pool The location has access to 100's of things to do Review dated 21/04/2016

  • We had an amazing time at Tredethick Farm. The cottage was lovely and cosy and there were great luxurious added extras like cream tea on arrival and soft robes provided. The facilities were brilliant! Our two year old loved feeding the animals and Farmer Tim and Jenny were really friendly and remembered all the kids names. They made the animal feeding slightly different every day as well to keep the kids excited and even gave them party bags on the last day. The indoor swimming pool and soft play were perfect for keeping little ones entertained and tiring them out! We absolutely loved our holiday here and would definitely book again.Review dated 25/02/2015
