We stayed in Field View Cottage with our daughters (now aged 10 and 7), and our dog Lanson in August 2012 and had a fantastic week. We loved it so much that when we got home we told our very good friends about it all and agreed to book at week back at Hendrifton Farm using both Granary and Field View Cottages. Our friends have 2 children (a daughter aged 10 and son aged 3).
We hadnt told the kids about going back there let alone staying with our great friends and when we arrived and they realised firstly where they were and who they were on holiday with they were estatic !!!
Mel, Gareth and Max greeted us on arrival and once again immediately made us all feel at home and once again we found mel's marvellous scones, clotted cream and jam awaiting us (this in itself is an amazing part of the week not to be missed !!). Our friends loved Granary Cottage as soon as they went in and Field View Cottage had had a couple of costmetic updates (new carpet upstairs, a couple of new units and a touch up of paint) which had once again made it look perfect an idyllic. The children loved the freedom of the farm and the use of field that they went in whenever they had the chance, whilst we loved its peace and quiet. Between all 8 of us, we ate together all the time and there was plenty of space with the extendable table in granrary cottage (thanks for leaving Steve the note Mel and Gareth about that !! lol) and there was everything that you need in both kitchens to cook great food. The beds were comfortable as ever and despite it being a chilly week outdoors the cottages were always lovely and warm and you were not short of hot water !!
Location wise Hendrifton Farm is excellent for both Cornish coastlines, and you are never far from a great pub serving great food (The cheesewring arms was amazing and very family and dog friendly). We also love Golitha Falls which is just 2 mins drive from the farm and is great for its scenic views and lovely walks.
All in all we were amazed that our fantastic week last august was beaten by an even better week this April and I would recommend Hendrifton Farm and Mel and Gareth as hosts to anyone, the place is just perfect !!
When we left and having said our goodbyes to Mel and Gareth, the kids were all in tears and couldnt stop going on about how this had been the best holiday that they had ever had (and between them they have done quite a few including cruises, lapland and disney !!). We cant disappoint the kids (or ourselves !!) so we have already and agreed with our friends to book another week at Hendrifton Farm in 2014 and it cant come round soon enough !!!
