Tregoninny Farm and Woodland
Reviewed 14 August 2010

As a disabled male, i travelled to Tregoninny Farm on my own and awaited the arrival of my 2 daughters. I meet the carers from Taylors Care Company at the train station who were caring for myself while i was staying here. Upon arrival the both hoist's was found to be not working properly and the LOLER test was out of date by 2 years!!! Subsequently the 'farmer' removed the operating battery from the hoist. Taylors Care Company went out of their way too find a hoist that was working correctly. Without Taylors Care Company my holiday would of been ruined. I think Tregoninny Farm need to inprove and up date their brouchre to truley appeal to disabled people.

We spent a long weekend at Tregoninny with our family and some extended family. Both families had young children and we were easily housed in very comfortable rooms. The rooms were nicely decorated and had gorgeous views! The hosts were quick to greet us and make sure we were comfortable, offering us tea or wine as needed.

During the trip our two year old became sick and Colin and others were quick to ask what we might need to make her feel better. While the area is quite isolated, the children enjoyed exploring the farm by foot. It is perfectly situated for visiting all the sites in Cornwall. The drive is gravel but definitely manageable and quite lovely during the spring when we were there.

Highly recommended for location and value for money.

Rooms more than adequate and a great breakfast.

Location provides peace and quiet with terrific views well worth braving the driveway for.

Genuine and friendly owner.

Reading previous reviews, I wondered if this was the same place, as it's obviously fallen a long way.

We were pleasantly welcomed, and shown to our room. Very basic, no wardrobe, just a hanging rail. The TV was plugged into an extension lead, the cable of which appeared through the ceiling and was stapled to the wall. The bathroom was opposite the room across the corridor. Horror of horrors, we had to share it with all the other rooms on that floor! As there were so many of using it, we were constantly running out of loo roll and having to go and ask for more. The room was clean, the beds were pushed together to make a double but the head board was loose, so every movement caused it to bang against the wall - anything more strenuous than turning over in bed was out of the question..... There were tea making facilities, which were not replenished in the two days we stayed, nor was the room made up.

There was a beautiful conservatory looking out over a fabulous view where it would have been very pleasant to sit and chat and read with a cuppa but as the tea room was closed, we had to leave to get any refreshments. People were going in to town, and coming back with bags of supermarket food and eating it in the conservatory! There were a lot of guests, they could have made themselves a fortune selling food and drinks but didn't seem too bothered.

They really should do something about that drive, it's positively dangerous! Nearly a mile of loose stones and extremely muddy with a deep drop on one side, and very few places to pass if anyone comes the other way. A guest got stuck in the mud and had to be towed out by the owner, and sank so far down that it caused damage to the underneath of his car. Not so good for the able-bodied, but what if it had been one of the disabled guests?

The place seemed to be run by two chaps on their own with a lady and another chap who appeared sporadically. They need more staff, obviously.

We needed a cab, so I went down to ask if someone could call us one. We were grumpily given a card, and told that they left the cards on view so that we could call them for ourselves. I pointed out that as there was no mobile coverage, we couldn't, so I was allowed to use the 'phone in the kitchen. It was so filthy that I didn't actually want to touch it.

Having said all that, the facilities for the disabled were fantastic, and highly recommended.

The farm had not been our initial first choice for a place to stay as we were aiming to go to the Eden Project but we were absolutely delighted. After navigating the beautiful but rather imposing off road track for nearly a mile to the house, we were met by a wonderfully welcoming host. He offered us drinks and the opportunity to sit in the stunning conservatory while we acclimatised ourselves. The drive isn't for the feint hearted but it really is worth it. When you get to the end, it feels like you're in the middle of nowhere.

We stayed in a regular double en suite room. The former out-buildings have been converted to be the bed and breakfast rooms so each feels more like a self-contained apartment and each has it's own private entrance. The centre has also been very thoughtfully designed for those with mobility difficulties. Neither of us found those adaptations to be intrusive in the space and the walk in shower was lovely. There was also a bath so we benefited from both options.

The breakfasts were very nice and the family who run the site are more than welcoming to all. It's well worth a visit, the views are worth seeing on their own!

We stayed in a spacious suite comprising of: a master bedroom (complete with beams and high ceilings); a single bedroom; bathroom with shower over bath; and well equipped lounge.

The breakfast was substantial and very good quality. The choice of cereals was particularly amazing and the full English breakfast was served hot and fresh every day.

We found this B&B excellent value for money and would return here again. The driveway up to the farm is quite long (a mile) and has work still to be done, therefore, slow, careful driving would be advised.

With three in our party, we had two rooms with an interconnecting sitting room. Everything was just right with great breakfasts, welcoming owners (Caroline Northover and husband), super conservatory with great views. Parking excellent. There is also self-catering accommodation.
Could be great for small groups.
Ideal for anyone with limited mobilty.
Cornwall is a great place with so many attractions (eg Eden Project) a short journey away.
