South Torfrey Farm
Reviewed 5 August 2013

We stayed in the Gillyflower Cottage at South Godfrey Farm. This is lovely cottage on two levels - lounge & kitchen are open plan and open out on to a secluded patio decking area with BBQ. Both bedrooms are en-suite located downstairs. The property is furnished to a high quality and is in a quiet rural location within easy distance of many local attractions e.g. Eden Project, Lands End, Ossetia, Truro & Penzance to name just a few. Well worth a visit.

We enjoyed a very pleasant stay at Mulberry cottage. The weather was really great - two weeks full of sunshine.
It was really perfect - we especially appreciated the large table in the dining room where there was space enough for all family members; and the look out of the window; and the best-equipped kitchen; and ... (not two forget the two farm pigs just outside our cottage :-))

Room Tip: We stayed at cottage Mulberry - a great place for a big family.

Just visited for our second stay. This is becoming our favourite family holiday place in the UK. Cottages are first class. National Trust Cottages have over priced themselves so we have been delighted to find South Torfrey Farm.
Excellent facilities, clean and relaxing. Owners, Debbie and Simon, are very pleasant and leave you in peace to have a great holiday.

It seemed to take forever for the 21st December to come - when we could return to the beautiful Mulberry!!

Everything was perfect, as last time! There were 6 adults, 1 child and a Vincent Boy (dog), so we took Mulberry and Linden. My sister and brother in law loved Linden too!!

The big table in Mulberry made our meal times easy as it's an 8 seater table, so plenty of room for the 7 of us.

We even had one of Debbie and Simons' AMAZING turkeys on Christmas day - quite possibly the best we've ever had!!!!

I would go back every month if I could! The games room, swimming pool, views, basket of games, DVD's to borrow...a real place to get away and relax.

There are not enough superlatives to write about Mulberry Cottage! Our short break to celebrate a 60th birthday, a 30th birthday and to welcome a new family member (Oscar - aged 4 weeks!) surpassed our expectations. Immediately on entry, we felt the atmosphere of this superbly presented barn with the high beams and wood burner. It was spacious and very well appointed with all mod cons. We have never stayed anywhere with so many appliances! Everything had been thought about carefully; from the good quality towels and linen to the basket of wood by the wood-burner, ready to create cosy evenings. There is plenty to do for everyone here from children to adults. There were boxes of games for youngsters and a huge range of books and DVDs to borrow in the games room. South Torfrey Farm is ideally situated for exploring the South Coast. Visit this location and I guarantee that you will be re-booking like us!

Room Tip: Mulberry for plenty of space! Beautifully open plan upstairs and 3 good sized double/twins downstair...

We stayed in Linden which is one of the converted buildings. Linden has two bedrooms, two bathrooms (all downstairs) and a single upstairs area with a kitchen, lounge and dinning table.

One bedroom is a double and the second is bunks. One bathroom has a shower only and the other bath and shower.

Upstairs there is a Sony TV, DVD player, dishwasher, washer, dryer, electric oven, microwave and everything you could reasonably want to use in a kitchen.

There's a wood-burner to keep the place warm and electric heating which we didn't use (we were blessed with amazing weather).

The farm itself is organic and has geese and turkeys in the fields. There is also a collection of hens, two pigs, and a head-butting goat which are all very friendly.

The owners are very friendly and point you in all the right directions.

The farm is very dog-friendly. No restrictions on leaving your dog, charges etc etc.

There's also loads to do if it rains (library of books/DVDs, snooker, table tennis, badminton, suana and one of those swimming pools with a current which you can swim against - there is a hoist for those less able). There's a rowing machine and cycling machine by the pool.

It's a short walk to the riverside-village of Golant (pub and restaurant) where you can kayak. A few miles away is Fowey, which is about as Cornish as you can get.

There are lots of footpaths nearby including the Saints Way and South West Coastal Path. The bays along the channel coast are stunning.

Downsides...none. Really there are none!

Room Tip: Linden is great although the stairs are steep (and a bit squeaky)!

We stayed in Mulberry for 1 week at the very end of April. As the other reviewers have stated, it was perfect in every way. Plenty of crockery, cutlery, glasses. Lots of storage space. Super comfortable sofas and beds. There was even a basket of board games!!
The onsite facilities are great too - my little girl especially loved the swimming pool! We paid a visit to Lisa the goat most days and had a lovely time on each visit to the hobby farm too. My daughter was especially excited when we had morning visits from Sparkle the cat - what a friendly boy he is!! We didn't make use of the games room, but that was great too - as is the collection of DVD's etc.
Debbie gave us a wonderful greeting and was super helpful the entire time we were there.
We loved it so much, we've booked up to come back for Christmas!!! We're hiring Mulberry and Linden. We're all thoroughly looking forward to it!!
