We had a lovely family holiday at Chark Farm with our two young boys (3 and 1). We all enjoyed our time on the farm, the boys loved getting involved with the animal feeding each morning, especially feeding the little guinea pig and moving Fluffy the pig. Our 3 year old loved having the opportunity to ride a pony for... More

Thanks for the feedback. We are glad you enjoyed the farm experience. It's been quiet here since your visit, with only adults staying. I think the animals miss the extra attention, they get a bit bored with just me! They'll have plenty of other children for half term, last week of this month. Best wishes to you all x More

It was lovely to see city kids like ours gain confidence with the animals. Jenny was happy to let the kids get as involved as they wanted in the farm routines.

Many thanks for your comments. We do enjoy seeing children getting more confident as the week goes on, especially the ones that are wary of the animals to start with. Glad you enjoyed your holiday! More

What a wonderful first contact with a farm and England for our french family! The warm welcoming by both Jenny and Clive helped us to feel very confortable : they spent a lot of time to discuss with us and Jenny took very well into account the age of our girls. We never experienced a farm before but enjoy it... More

Our second visit to Chark Farm and we all enjoyed another wonderful holiday.

Just spent a wonderful two weeks at Chark Farm. You are made really welcome by Jenny and Clive. It is a great place and within easy reach of all of Cornwall. Mesyow Chy is a great wheelchair accessible cottage that sleeps four (two beedrooms) and has a bath/wet room.

Thank you for your kind comments about Mesyow Chy, and glad you could enjoy the peace and quiet. It is true that parts of Cornwall can be challenging for those with less mobility.

Fantastic stay at Chark Farm with our 20 month old boy. We stayed in the Skyber cottage, which is a lot bigger than I expected and the enclosed back garden boarders the animals.
