Happy to help

 We moved to Coombe Mill in 2002, giving up the South East ‘rat race’ in favour of the ‘good life’ in the country. We had 3 very young children then and, within 2 years of arriving, doubled the family with triplets. They are now growing up and all help out here. Coombe Mill is our business, our passion and our hobby and we live here in the heart of the estate. This is our home which we love to share with you here on holiday. If there is anything you need we are happy to help and have a handy intercom from our house to the reception shop. Email at any time of the day or night and you will be surprised at the times we will come right back to you!


Meet the Family

Farmer Nick

Farmer Nick

Everyone on holiday will become very familiar with me, especially the children. I take the morning tractor and trailer rides with all the children, parents and grandparents at 9 am from our car park. I love to answer all your questions on animal welfare and am always looking for young volunteers to help drive the tractor with me, feed and care for the animals as we go round. The children love to give me a friendly wave as I potter about my daily business on the tractor during the day. I am the one to see about fishing on our lakes and river and the DIY expert for anything which needs fixing.

 

Fiona

Fiona

I am wife to Farmer Nick and mummy to our 6 children and will probably be your first contact with Coombe Mill as I manage the office. Welcoming you to Coombe Mill when you arrive and sharing all the exciting things to do on holiday is one of my great pleasures along with updating you with all the latest farm news via our blog, facebook, twitter, instagram and more. Do jump on board, join the chat and become a part of our life at Coombe Mill.

Hi, I am the eldest of the Cambouropoulos children. Now  18 years old I am away for part of the year at Cardiff University where I am studying Economics.  When I am back at the farm in the holidays I am Dad’s ‘fix it’ helper and my jobs vary depending on what needs doing. You might find me painting or mixing concrete or even chopping down a tree.

I love beach sports, especially sailing and surfing.

Felix

Hi, I am Felix, I am 16 and second eldest of the Coombe Mill children. I am the ‘odd job boy’ on a Saturday checking lights, smoke alarms and moving cots and highchairs around as well as sorting any issues that might have occurred the previous week in all the properties ready for your arrival. When I am not helping here on the farm or at collage studying for my A levels. In my spare time I love to surf and enjoy music.

I am 14 and I love to care for the animals. The rabbits are my favourite and I am responsible for cleaning their home as well as feeding locking them up at night to protect them from the fox! I also do the animal feeding for Dad on a Saturday as this is the only day there is not a feed run and Dad has other jobs he needs to do. I am studying for my GCSE’s and love drama.

Guy

Guy

“Toot Toot” I am Guy your resident train driver and one of the triplets. Meet me over at Coombe Halt for train rides 6 days a week. I love my job and it is a great way to make new friends here at Coombe Mill. I am 12 and love to show you everything that happens here at Coombe Mill. On a Saturday I am busy stripping beds and counting linen with my sister. Not as fun as driving the train but it all helps to earn my pocket money. In my spare time I love to fish in the Coombe Mill lakes and offer rods for sale and fishing lessons for anyone interested. 

Jed

Jed

Hi, I am Jed and one of the triplets. I am apprentice to my big brother Felix on a Saturday learning how to make sure everything is just as you ordered for when you arrive. In my spare time I love all sports especially Rugby and football. Kick a ball around on the farm and I’ll be sure to come and join you.

Clio

Hi, I am Clio, the youngest member of the Coombe Mill children by just 7 minutes, and the only girl. Don’t worry I am very good at standing up for myself with my brothers. Guy and I do the bed linen together on a Saturday and I help Mum on the computer too. You will also see me if you join our activity hour where I love to help out and join in the crafts. I want to be a PE teacher when I grow up and love all sports. I play in the school netball team and am working on Grade 5 Tap and Ballet out of school. I also love gymnastics but sadly our local club closed down so I’m on the hunt for somewhere new to practice.

As well as the Family here to help you we have:

 Amber

Amber

Hi, I’m Amber and I’m Coombe Mill’s duty Manager. I hold the fort full time when the family are away and work 4 days a week the rest of the time. I live here at Coombe Mill with my boyfriend and little dog Balto. I am also doing an apprenticeship in Hospitality. Usually you’ll find me helping Fiona out in the office and on activity hour and alternating with Farmer Nick on the feed run. I’m enjoying being involved with all aspects of the business so you never know where I may pop up! 

 

The Cleaners

Our Cleaning team work form 9am -3pm on a Saturday to ensure all our properties are spick and span ready for your arrival. They are a lovely local group of ladies, many of whom have been with us for generations and fully understand our properties and your need to find them in tip top shape. Please say hello to them if you arrive early to explore the grounds and they are still working hard but please don’t enter the properties to unload while they are working .
