“Real gem of a place”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

When I checked reviews before booking this place I couldn't find any that rated it less than excellent which seemed too good to be true, but it certainly was excellent!
The cottage was immaculate and beautifully presented. Jenny sorted cot, highchair, toys, safety gate etc for our toddler which saved us some luggage!
We all had a great time waking up the animals each day, enjoyed a horse and cart ride and tracker ride and tour round the dairy farm. Our toddler still remembers Billy the pony and Fluffy the pig. Jenny looked after us well.
We had amazing weather so had beach trips each day but the place is centrally located so short drives to a range of all weather activities across cornwall.
Loved it and will be back next year!

Accommodation is lovely. The owners are smashing. The farm is a total learning journey for our very excited five year old. No road noise. Would I return again? Most definitely. On the plus side for trip advisor I booked this holiday with the recommendations of other trip advisors who all give it five stars it's really five star plus plus .

We have just returned for another fantastic week at Chark farm, it was our second time and we will definitely be back, it was even better than we remembered the first time. The owners Jenny and Clive make you feel very welcome and do everything they can to ensure you have a great holiday, we were lucky enough to have sunny weather so got to go out on a cart ride with Jasmine the horse and my 3 year old daughter had her first ride on Billy the pony, she is still talking about Billy the horse and fluffy the pig.

The accommodation is fabulous, very clean and homely and has everything you need for a nice relaxing week. The bedrooms are really spacious and plenty of room for the extra bed for my daughter, we travelled with grand parents aswell and the living area was big enough for all of us. if the sun is shinning then Jenny has BBQ's that you can use which is great out on the patio on a summers evening.

The location is perfect, it's close enough to everywhere that you can explore all that Cornwall has to offer, there are some nice restaurants around to, we went to the crowne at lanlivery and had a lovely meal and would recommend that to anyone looking for somewhere to eat out one night.

We can't recommend Chark highly enough as the perfect family holiday in this country, absolutely love it and will be going back again.

We leave tomorrow after two fantastic weeks. If you have a wheelchair user in your family, this is a brilliant place, inside all on one level, wheel in shower, loverly patio that gets the sun all day. The only thing wrong is the British weather, we arrived on mid summers day and you would have thought it was spring by the temp! If you have children it is a great place to introduce farm life to them with all the animals.

We have just returned from a fantastic week on Chark Farm. Our toddler absolutely loved the morning routine of feeding the animals and getting them out of bed! The cart ride and seeing the cows being milked we're highlights. The cottage was spotless and had everything you could possibly need. It's a great location for exploring all of Cornwall and Jenny and Clive couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. We will be back next year and would have no hesitation recommending to friends and family.

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday at Chark farm for the 2nd year running and can't thank Jenny and Clive enough for making the experience truly wonderful for all of us. The farm has it all, lots of animals, very comfortable and fully equipped accommodation with lots to do around the farm itself. Can't wait to return for our next visit.

Jenny was very accommodating as we had asked to arrive early on a Monday and leave late on a Friday,and this was no problem. We duly arrived, with our large lurcher, Tigger and he soon settled in. The comfortable leather furniture and wooden floors were ideal in a dog-friendly cottage. Jenny was also very helpful in sorting out our Internet connection which we needed to stay in touch with work. The cooking facilities were excellent with all equipment provided and easy to use. We enjoyed walking in the fascinating Luxulyan Valley with its historic mining relics, we walked the Coast Path from Fowey and also walked from Fowey to Lanlivery; and appreciated the hot bubbly jacuzzi bath afterwards! The bed was extremely comfortable after all this exercise and we are happy to recomment Chark Farm as a base for any walker or Geocacher visiting the area.
