We are just coming to the end of a terrific week at St Tinney Farm. I think it is fair to say that this is one of the best places we have ever stayed in the UK.
We arrived after a very long journey (nearly ten hours from North West England) and were 'late' in that reception was closed. We phoned when we knew how delayed we were going to be and were told where we could get our keys from.
We had opted for a valley cottage, and it was just great. Very well equipped kitchen (including a dishwasher and tablets), comfortable living room with a huge TV - we have a very old set at home so this really was a novelty for us! - ipod dock, DVD player and Freesat box, two good bedrooms, lovely new bathroom and additional toilet. Outside we could enjoy the stunning views as we ate outside at the picnic table at our front door. Electricity/gas, although we've had to pay, hasn't proved too expensive at all.
Although we spent a fair bit of time here in the pool (heated and incredibly clean) and at the playground which our children loved, St Tinney has been an excellent base for exploring northern Cornwall. We enjoyed spending time at a variety of beaches (Crackington Haven: good for rock pooling; Widmouth; Sandymouth: glorious. It's National Trust but parking is only £3), pottering around Boscastle and in particular cycling the Camel Trail from Wadebridge to Padstow. We also visited Bude on a rainy day and went to Splash indoor pool. Expensive but good fun.
We've had such a good holiday here and our children just do not want to go home. I am quite sure we will be back one day!
