We have recently come home from our visit to St. Ives and we simply cannot wait to go back. St. Ives itself is a wonderful place but we found a real gem in Trevalgan Holiday Farm. We had not visited St. Ives before and were a little put off by the cost of staying in the centre, so we opted for Trevalgan based on price and also the fact it looked like a great place for our 3 year old daughter. The play room and games room were well used by us during our week stay and Macy loved all the animals especially the baby goats Bert and Ernie! The only downside is that you are not in the centre of St. Ives itself but given the fact you can drive or get a bus which runs hourly to and from the farm (in peak season), you really cannot complain. The bus takes less than 5 minutes and you do not have the hassle and expense of parking. I cannot recommend Trevalgan enough to anyone, especially those with young children. We can't wait to go back and are already looking at next year.
