“A brilliant first family holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2010

this is a brilliant place for your first holiday away with your toddler, the family provide everything that you could possibly need in the way of toys and facilities, meaning that you don't have to take your kitchen sink with you. The animal feeding activities are tailored to the younger children with friendly animals and everything being timed exactly right. Great beaches nearby to enjoy and great food and hospitality.

Can't rate it highly enough

In fact it is the most looked forward to week of the year with the countdown beginning as soon as we drive away from another perfect week at the farm. Our first holiday was on a bed and breakfast basis when the children were 2. On arrival we were amazed to find a well equipped family home. Not only was the living room filled with toys; the courtyard had tractors, trailers and bikes. And there were animals too! The facilities for adults can't be faulted with three bedrooms which are all clean and light with en suite bathrooms. They are all furnished beautifully with comfort as a priority. The food is either home or locally produced and is delicious. Start the day with a hearty breakfast and finish with an early tea for the children and then a mouth watering menu for adults. We have been visitors at Higher Lank Farm on a regular basis for the past 7 years and can't imagine a time when we have to stop. My daughter and I always holiday with 2 other families and have now progressed onto the barn which has three bedrooms and is fully self catering with its own small garden and courtyard area which is perfect for tractor watching. We love it here. The Finnemore family are the most welcoming hosts you could possibly wish for with Lucy in charge of delicious meals and general spoiling, Andrew in charge of animal feeding and answering of endless questions and the children as perfect role models for the younger visitors. We've watched our children grow with confidence as they let out the chickens and ducks, feed the baby lambs and pigs, ride Billy the pony and sit with timid goats whilst they adjust to new surroundings. I've even been known to let out the geese every once in while rather than running out of the field which is what I would much rather do. The no nonsense yet openly caring approach to farming life draws us in more and more each time we visit. There are beautiful walks across the moors or down the fields to the family stream. The location is perfect. We tend to be creatures of habit with regular trips to Padstow, Lappa Valley Railway, St Ives and always ride hired bikes on the Camelford trail but there is so much more to explore. We still have yet to visit the Eden Project - maybe this year ...

Yet another great stay at Higher Lank Farm ! Lucy and Andrew made us feel so welcome and the children were quickly at home with toys to play with every way they turned ! Lucy has clearly used her experience as a mum to make sure that her guests (big and little !) have everything that they need during their stay. Our room was spacious and comfortable and it was great to have the children in their own little room off ours. The location of the farm is beautifully rural and peaceful. We enjoyed soaking up the peace whilst the children were happy playing on the pedal tractors and climbing frames.The children loved feeding the animals, particularly the lambs and also collecting eggs. We appreciated the time taken by Lucy and Andrew to talk to and encourage our children creating an even more valuable and memorable experience for them. We found all the staff at Higher Lank Farm to be friendly and helpful. We enjoyed delicious breakfasts and found the evening meals to be tasty and excellent value for money. We had some good trips out and found plenty to do with the children. The farm is within easy reach of some stunning sea-side spots. We particularly enjoyed a walk along the beach at Padstow.

Higher Lank Farm is a must if your children love animals. We took our 2 and a half year old there for three nights and she loved every minute of it. From getting up in the morning and playing with the masses of toys in the lounge to donning wellies to feeding the farm animals. There was the opportunity to feed ducks and chickens, to collect their eggs and also to feed the lambs and pigs... The best treat for her was riding the pony at the end of feeding time. Nothing is too much trouble for Lucy and Andrew, they even babysat for us so we could sneak off up to the pub for a few drinks one night. Would definately recommend Higher Lank farm to anybody, well I have already !! The farm is very well equipped for families so you don't have to panic if you forget to take something with you, as most of the things you would need are already provided. The rooms are spacious and cleaned every morning whilst breakfast is being served. All in all a wonderful break for us all and lots of happy memories.
