Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This place is beginning to feel like a second home! We were 4 adults plus 2 children (7 and 10) and fitted nicely into Roebuck. This year, with the kids being older we made good use of the on site sports hall, and the swimming pool. Our 7 year old again enjoyed the daily animal feeding. Judith and Kate were as welcoming and helpful as usual. Thank-you Poltarrow!

We were three generations, grandparents, parents and three children aged 6,5 and 4 months staying at Roebuck for one very wet and windy week at the end of July. We could not have chosen a better place to be. The indoor pool was always quiet and beautifully warm, the sports barn large enough for football and the perfect place for badminton, table tennis , snooker and cartwheels. When we did face the outdoors the small play area was a great success with scooters. Kate's almost daily animal feeding session lasted often over an hour while she patiently facilitated feeding, egg collecting, grooming, and cuddling the guinea pigs. When it was really wet she moved the activity into the barn so nobody missed out. She is a delight. We arrived to a cream tea and the most generous hospitality; everything one could need for breakfast. The cottage was to a very high standard and everything reflected the very generous and thoughtful spirit of the family who own and run the farm. We would return and hopefully explore more of the lovely beaches close by. And perhaps get to sit out on the little balcony with the stunning views, or use the private patio with barbeque next time!

I almost didn't want to write this review because if it gets too popular we won't be able to book again but I can't do that to Poltarrow after such a wonderful week there. We have stayed in lots of high quality self-catering cottages all over the UK but Poltarrow is definitely the best, especially for families. We stayed in Fallow with our two kids age 3 and 8. It was spacious, spotlessly clean and well-equipped. It was also beautifully furnished and the sofas and beds were extremely comfortable. The farm itself is just wonderful. Our kids loved the swimming pool and the 'one family at a time' arrangement meant we had it to ourselves. We appreciated there not being a rota or sign up slots as it meant we could all be flexible and all the families on the site were respectful of each other's time. Our little one loved the soft play room but the absolute highlight was the animal feeding every morning with Kate, who was so friendly and great with the kids. We also loved playing with the guinea pigs. Instead of being upset by bad weather it meant an afternoon of swimming, playing and cuddles with Caramel the guinea pig. The welcome pack was appreciated with generous amount supplied, and there are lots of supermarkets nearby. The location is fabulous. A short drive from the Lost Gardens of Helligan which makes the weekly pass worthwhile, and close to fantastic beaches on both the north and south coasts. Our favourite was Porthcurnick. We were all sorry to leave and hope to come back in the future.

Our family of 4 stayed at Poltarrow in the last week of July. What a find!! Clean, tidy accommodation with everything you might need for a week away. The facilities are brilliant for families with children of all ages. Our kids loved the pool, sports hall, boating lake and animal feeding. Younger kids have a soft play room and outdoor playground with ride on toys too. Location is perfect for days out on the North and South coast of Cornwall. Having older kids we did lots of adventurous activities located nearby and lots of eating out. Definitely 5 stars from us.

We had such a wonderful holiday at Poltarrow Farm. Excellent facilities, perfect for our 21month old, soft play, pool and outdoor play. Every morning we could feed the farm animals. The location is perfect, most things are within a 20min drive - Eden project, Heligan, Mevagissey etc. Even though it’s perfectly set up for children, it would still be great for couples as it’s a quiet farm. We stayed in Sika cottage which was all on one level, so better for small children. It was lovely. A fridge full of food was waiting for us - milk, scones, bacon, sausages, eggs and more!! We would definitely come back! Honestly one of the nicest places we’ve ever stayed!

Stayed for a week during Feb 2022, with our children and grandchildren. We stayed in 3 of the cottages, all were furnished and decorated to a very high standard. The location is fantastic, amidst acres of farmland and ideally placed to explore the local area. On site amenities are excellent, grandchildren loved the heated swimming pool and the large sports/games room. Owners were really friendly and helpful. Grandchildren enjoyed helping Kate feed some of the farm animals in the morning. A great place to stay and we are already planning a return visit next year. Thanks Judith, Kate and family for helping make our family holiday such a special occasion.

We stayed in Deer Park for 2 weeks. On arrival the cottage was spotless and very welcoming. An excellent welcome pack was much enjoyed. The cottage had everything needed for a comfortable self catering holiday, with lovely views over the surrounding countryside. The rest of the facilities were also immaculate, the sports hall and the children's play areas'. The pool was very clean and warm. We think this is the best self catering cottage we have had, and we have had many over the years. We can highly recommend Poltarrow Farm

We have just returned from a fantastic week at Poltarrow. The cottage was spotlessly clean when we arrived and had everything we could have asked for, including highchairs, cots and bedsides for our small children, and the owners had very thoughtfully provided us with scones, bacon, sausages and apple juice, which were waiting for us upon arrival. The children loved the swimming pool, softplay and outdoor play area, but particularly enjoyed feeding the farm animals and the Pony ride. The owners were very friendly, and you felt that nothing would be too much trouble, We loved Poltarrow farm, and hope to return in the future for another great holiday.

This has everything one could want. Poltarrow Farm is set in the centre of a small farm away from roads. There are two lakes a swimming pool and a sports room. When we asked the kids about the best thing they did on holiday they unanimously said the animal feeding, which was done in a very safe way. The cottage was clean, spacious and had a great shower and separate bath. Also close by you have The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Helligan - two favourites of ours.

We stayed as a family here in the middle of September my partner, our little boy and my sister and mother. We stayed in Roebuck and had the loveliest stay. The cottage itself is just beautiful with gorgeously furnished rooms and very comfy beds and sofas, I was a bit dubious using a travel cot but the one they left was ever so comfy for a little boy with lovely clean bedding. We were welcomed with a gorgeous spread of farm produce and an afternoon tea, though we were so well stocked up we forgot to buy butter! The place is immaculately clean and on a gorgeous farm. One day we got to feed the animals with our boy and it was lovely to do, the lady that shown us round was funny and told great anecdotes of her father. We also used the swimming pool which was lovely and warm. All of the people we met at the cottage were ever so kind and checked in and made us feel very welcome, they even went to the trouble of mailing us a charger we left behind. There’s lots of nice trips near by, I thoroughly recommend the lost gardens of Heligan and if you’re happy to travel a bit further Hidden Valley Park is a great day out for the family with lots of puzzles and games to solve for a very reasonable price. Overall a fab stay and would consider stopping again.
