We've just come back from a wonderful holiday at Court Farm. There were 2 adults, 1 toddler and 1 baby and we stayed in the farmhouse. I can't wait until we can go again & I would recommend Court Farm to anyone. It's a wonderfully relaxing farm that is completely geared up for babies and children.For those wanting lively action, Court Farm is just a few minutes up the road from the buzz of Bude, with it's gorgeous beaches, fun surf boutique-y shops, and all-year holiday feel. And for those wanting a quiet & relaxing break, I can't honestly imagine anywhere better than the sleepy Cornish village/hamlet of Marhamchurch.
Court Farm was the perfect place for our toddler - she loved the animals, the toys, the pool, the trampoline, the wendy house, the playground, the other little ones to play with... the list goes on! Kevin and Vicky made us feel really welcome and succeeded in providing a warm home-from-home environment. Think: customised toy box delivered to your door within an hour of arriving; cupboards already stocked up with plastic bowls, cups etc. for toddler's dinnertime; cots erected and placed in the right rooms ready for naps/bed on arrival etc.... Nothing was too much trouble, and all the little extra baby and toddler equipment provided in the house, meant that our packing was minimal which was such a bonus! We even had our shopping delivered as we arrived to make our lives even easier - and if you're not familiar with the Cornish hospitality, the delivery service will give you a great intro. I wish they were that friendly when they pull up in their van at home!
Court Farm does exactly what it says on the tin: cosy for couples and terrific for toddlers. It's like the best bits of a pre-baby holiday (treatment room (with AMAZING massage therapist by the way - if you go, you MUST book with Vicky!), indoor pool, cosy fireplaces, quiet and relaxing surroundings, free wiFi etc.), mixed in with the best facilities for babies and toddlers. A genius mix. Take the pool for example... it's like stepping into a warm bath - absolutely perfect for little ones, and the owners make a big effort to keep the air temperature really warm too, so there's no tears when the kids get out.
One last little tip - if your children want a change of scene on the playground front, or if you just fancy a little stroll, there's another good playground in the village, about 2 mins slow walking away. Oh, and you must go to "Life's A Beach" in Bude - a really lovely beach-side restaurant that warmly welcomes children, and has fab views.
