What a welcome bottle of wine and cream tea and it just got better and better. The Meiklems are wonderful hosts and thanks for letting me swim at 8.30am every day - would highly recommend thanks again. Kate Paul Pam and Wally Hill

Just got back,to,rainy chilly Derbyshire after a fortnight's bliss at Bocaddon. The Meiklems are wonderful hosts and the house, self-catering cottages and grounds are all beautifully maintained and cared for.
Katie's Cottage was perfect as we had our elderly mother with us for some of the time and she was very comfortable in the room downstairs with its fully equipped disabled access loo and wet room close at hand.
The cottage was just as described in the literature and on the Website; the addition of a bottle of cool white wine and a proper Cornish cream tea in the fridge was an unexpected pleasant surprise after a long old drive down.
We were in Cornwall for a family wedding and the day after the event, our newly weds had asked if we would host a bbq for all their friends whom they'd not been able to see properly on D-day in the busy-ness of the ceremony, wedding breakfast etc.
Not only did Alison positively encourage such a mad enterprise, but she also lent us the Meiklem family's own gas barbecue as we were catering for about 50 to 60 people; a great time was had by all with the only mishap being the demise of an inflatable dolphin which could not withstand the combined onslaught of several very enthusiastic "boys" enjoying the excellent pool. :-)
For anyone wanting a real break with some insight into a working farm but also with excellent facilities whether self-catering or in the BnB (some of our wedding guests stayed in the big house itself), Bocaddon is the place to stay. For self-catering meat-eaters I really do recommend the Bocaddon farm veal, it is absolutely delicious and comes from livestock reared under the very highest welfare standards, not a crate in sight. Same comments apply to the eggs - look out for the ones with the pale blue shells, not only pretty but good and tasty too.

Just returned from a wonderful stay in Bramble Byre. Being equipped for a disabled person it is totally wheelchair friendly, just had to hire a hoist which can be arranged for you.These cottages are in a very peaceful and quiet setting and when the sun shines it is heaven. They are well equipped with everything you would need to make it a home from home holiday. However the cherry on the cake would be an electric adjustable bed but still we had a great time.
Would recommend this property to anyone with specific needs.

Thank you for your review. We are always pleased to know that our disabled visitors really have a good and relaxed holiday. Sorry we can't provide electric beds as standard. They can be hired but are rather expensive!

Stayed in the Dairy Dell Cottage for 7 nights, with our 5 yr old & 2 yr old. Welcomed with a cream tea & bottle of wine. The cottage was clean & had everything we needed (inc BBQ). Pool was warm, clean & the boys enjoyed the pool toys as well as all the outside play equipment. Good base for exploring the area. Would stay again.

We had a fantastic stay at Bocaddon Farm. Nick and Alison were perfect hosts and the cottage was comfortable, well equipped, clean and the view from the back was breathtaking. Beautiful indoor swimming pool with a babies pool was perfect. Can't recommend this place enough!

On arrival there are scones and cream and they are absolutely lovely. The cottages are nice and clean and very spacious. Alison and nick are just the hostess with the mostest and will do anything to accommodate your needs!
Swimming pool is also very clean and I could of stayed in the hot tub/jacuzzi all day!
Although the cottage is on a farm you are never far away from attractions, so after a busy day it is the best feeling to return to a relaxing place.
Will defiantly return.
The only problem I can find is.......the typical English weather:)

After a great welcome by Alison we were off to the pool!, huge heated pool with spa bath and kids pool for our son. The grounds are beautiful and the chickens are great fun for children. Our family stayed for 3 nights and had a great time, comfortable with delicious filling breakfasts.

Spotless and perfect for families, the pool and outdoor play area with huge trampoline ensure you never get bored.

Room Tip: We stayed in the "Spring" room I think it's the best one at the B&B, there are sep...
