About the property

E13946

Originally an ancient farmstead, Coombe Farm now offers four luxury self-catering cottages in North Cornwall. Coombe Farm Cottages are tucked away at the end of a country lane. In this peaceful rural setting you forget the proximity to major trunk roads, which make exploring all of Cornwall so easy.

Everyday there is always lots of fun to be had on the farm, and lots to do!

While retaining the original farm layout, four of the farm buildings have been converted into outstanding holiday cottages with private gardens. There is an outdoor heated swimming pool (May-September weather depending) with spacious sun deck and BBQ facilities.

The communal garden and play area are very popular with children. Guests are also invited to help or watch Farmer Jez on his daily rounds, including feeding the pigs, sheep and horses and collecting the chicken’s eggs.

All cottages have access to the pool, private outdoor area, are fully equipped, free Wi-Fi on the property, on-site parking and fantastic rural views.

Within it’s grassy fields Coombe Farm is home to lambs & sheep that munch away all day, or snooze in the shade by the trees. There are generally 3 saddleback pigs in residence in the back field away from the cottages. They are very friendly and love being fed.

Coombe Farm has amazing facilities. The outdoor pool is heated from end of May to September (weather permitting), and everyone comments how surprisingly warm it is! There’s a spacious sun terrace with built in BBQ, sun loungers and tables and chairs so you can just spend the day swimming and relaxing by the pool.

About Louise Conway

Lou & Jez Conway took over at Coombe Farm in October 2013. We moved with our young children Ella and William and Granny Sally, 2 dogs and 3 cats. We love the area, the beautiful valley we live in, the pasties, the fresh air, the friendly people, the slower pace of life, the big skies, the cream teas, the wildlife, the rugged coastline. We want to work towards a small holding lifestyle with a few animals and a large vegetable patch. The good life!

Louise Conway purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Louise Conway chose North Cornwall

We love Coombe Farm as it is totally remote and secluded, quiet and peaceful. It is also 5 mins from major trunk roads & the market town of Launceston. It is an ideal base to explore North Cornwall, the moors, the coast, the historic villages.

What makes this cottage unique

Staying at Coombe Farm you will have the farm experience of living with and feeding the animals, including chickens, pigs, sheep and goats.

The swimming pool is heated in the main season (end May - Sept).

An Idyllic Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week staying in Dozmary Cottage. As a family of four with two young children and a dog this cottage is set up to make your life as easy as possible, from a high chair, to travel cot and additional kid friendly dishes the owners Jez and Lou literally couldn't have done more for us. The property also has its own self contained garden which meant the dog was always secure, Jez and Lou have clearly put their heart and soul into the Farm - the extra touches such as BBQ night and the ability to buy farmshop meat on the premises were great added touches.

Dozmary is a cute cottage that has been renovated to a high standard but it is the grounds, the farm animals and the heated swimming pool that really made our holiday. The kids loved feeding the animals with Farmer Jez every morning - our morning rituals felt a bit boring once we got home! Coombe Farm itself is in a great location and is a short drive from lots of great beaches, walks and days out - the Eden Project was a favourite of ours.

We will def be returning. Thanks for a great stay :)

An idyllic break down on the farm!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Coombe Farm Cottages in as many years, so that tells you what you need to know: it's the sort of place you can't wait to come back to. Dozmary cottage is just lovely – well equipped, clean, comfortable and with some very nice decorative touches. There's an outdoor patio with barbecue and a large area of grass that's all yours, too, so ideal if you have children or dogs. The farm itself is very well located for everything north Cornwall has to offer (although you do need a car). Over the years we've visited beaches at Bude, Widemouth (and a couple of secret locations Lou and Jez will let you in on if you're lucky); the Eden Project; Tintagel; Boscastle, as well as checking out great local pubs and restaurants (again, Lou and Jez are good for recommendations) and walks on Bodmin. But it's also just as fun – and very relaxing – to spend the day hanging out at the farm. Wake to the sound of the cockerel crowing, then start your day with the 8am tour of the animals, where 'Farmer Jez' helps the kids feed the pigs, sheep, goats and chickens – a fantastic experience for our urban urchins. Then buy some of the farm's own eggs, sausages and bacon and head back to the cottage for a divine full English. The kids are free to play in the playground, explore the farm, pet the dogs and cats and make friends with whoever else is staying on site. And if it's summer season the outdoor pool is open – and heated!

Lou and Jez are the perfect hosts, happy to chat if you want advice and recommendations, but also busy with their own family life and content to let you keep yourselves to yourselves if you prefer. We've also stayed in Morvoren cottage (lovely, best for couples or with one small child) and Silyback (very much like Dozmary, no garden just patio but direct access onto the playground) – all highly recommended.

A final point: while I can't guarantee good weather, we've always been blessed on our visits. And, situated as it is in a coombe (which I learned is a small valley!), the farm is sheltered and seems to have it's own microclimate, as well as beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. We will be back!

Simply Splendid!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a terrific week at the end of July at Coombe Farm and were absolutely thrilled with the place, facilities and the overwhelming ease of the owners. Our 4 year old replaced town for country and fed the animals every morning with farmer Jez and other children on the farm; we used the pool everyday and ventured to nearby local attractions- which are many! A splendid place- would definitely consider booking again either with family or for a retreat with girlfriends!
