Below are some of the reviews we have received since taking over Coombe Mill in late 2020. You can read more reviews on our Trustpilot listing.

Really special experience to stay here. We’re a family of three with a 2 year old that went with friends and it was perfect for us at this time and can see us going again for many years. Incredible choice of facilities there, inside and out, kids loved the play areas and the grown ups loved the bbq hut! The daily farm trips were wonderful. The two ladies that run the place are really friendly and great with the children. The lodges were really spacious and comfortable and even filled with toys already! Was good to have a fire in the evening to warn the lodge. Location is great for lots of lovely beaches, towns, and Camel Trail cycle track all within half an hour. Would really recommend.

We were a mixed age family group of 12 people from 10 weeks to 94 years and had 2 lodges – bit of a gamble, but wow, we had an amazing time. Beautifully equipped lodges, really comfortable beds and every amenity on site that we could think of! We had such a good time, from great fishing in the lakes to making pizzas in the pizza oven and going round the farm with the little ones to feed the animals.
We were made to feel so welcome by Anya and Emma and their children, who always had time to play, chat and listen, and I loved it that they were so evidently exploring and enjoying the area too.
A fantastic find, but a little nervous of telling everyone because we don’t want it to change or get too busy! WE will be back.

Truly amazing place. We had the best time at Coombe Mill. Anya could not be more helpful. The lodges are beautiful and have everything you need and more. There were toys in our lodge which my nephew was so excited over and played with them for hours. The play area, bbq area were right by our lodge so we could keep an eye on him very easily. There is also an indoor soft play, games room and gym for those rainy days. Because there are only a few lodges of us a lovely atmosphere and not over crowded. We loved walking the huge grounds with the dogs and my nephew still wears his hat he received from helping the one morning!!! We will definitely be back. Cannot recommend this place enough.

We have been coming to Coombe Mill now for 10 years. It’s our favourite hideaway in what is becoming a very busy Cornwall.
The best bit is that it has just got better!
Anya and Emma have taken the reins from Nick and Fiona and the farm has a new lease of life.
The Scandinavian lodges are getting a refresh with better WiFi, a good lick of paint and new furniture. So is the farm generally, with small changes here and there.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in August and can’t wait to come back. Only 6 weeks until we return!

A rare gem in a magnificent setting sums up this remarkable place. If you’re looking for peace and quiet, look no further. Coombe Mill is it! But if you’re looking for plenty to do, especially for children you’ll also find it here.
The comfortable -especially the king sized beds!- well equipped lodges with every amenity are only a stones throw away from the beautiful River Camel. Cross the river and there are two lakes and a farm with alpacas, ponies, deer, goats, sheep, pigs, hens, geese etc.
All need feeding and for grown ups and children alike, the morning tractor ride and feed run, led by the friendly farmers, Emma or Anya, was a real highlight and a repeated joy. We thoroughly enjoyed the hands on experience and visiting the hen house and collecting eggs for breakfast was something very special.
Emma and Anya are new owners and perfect hosts with their three children. Nothing appears too much trouble and it looks as though they are making continual improvements to the holiday experience with the games room and gym completely refurbished and re-equipped.
It all added up to a great holiday. It was our first visit which we enjoyed so much, it certainly won’t be our last!

Emma and anya and the kids made us feel right at home, Coombe Mill is in a beautiful county side in Cornwall, the lodge was clean and had everything we needed and even the our mini dachounds had treats and dog water bowl ready in the lodge which was a lovely thing and your own garden for dogs with the lodge ,but one of the dogs got out the garden so might need to put something around the bottom of fence to stop little dogs getting out ,the logdes are right near the beautiful river and farm ,and lakes ,my grandad Keith went fishing and catch lots of beautiful fish and enjoyed him self,I loved the animal free run in morning at 9am with farmer Emma or farmer Anya ,you get to be hands on the with animals to feed them ,there is pigs, sheep ,goats chickens ducks ,geese ,guinea foul ,ponies, alpacas deer and guinea pigs, and you can walk round and see the farm animals on your own ,and also I even came home with two beautiful guinea pigs which Emma and Anya let me have two and the kids millie, Sam,siena help me choose ,I will definitely recommend Coombe Mill to my family and friends and customers,and we will definitely book a hoilday In the future

Everything about Coombe Mill is set up as family friendly, including built in stair gates and full laundry facilities in chalets. We have twins and two cots and highchairs were set up for our arrival.
Anya and Emma are so approachable and friendly and really made the stay personal. We did daily animal feed trips and the patience they showed with our one year olds in helping them learn to stroke animals and pick up feed was amazing. We even got fresh eggs!
We’re planning on coming back again on a regular basis as it’s a great location for exploring Cornwall and has so much to offer on site.

This was our fourth visit to Coombe Mill and even so, the new owners, Anya and Emma, managed to exceed all our expectations.
We first visited when our children were one and now they are eight, there are still so many things for them to enjoy, from the feed run, to splashing in the river, expending some energy on the trampoline and bonding with other children – including Emma and Anya’s three children.
Anya and Emma are incredibly welcoming and went out of their way to make sure a particular request we had was met. They have been gradually working their way around the farm, upgrading the facilities, which to be honest had been getting rather dated and run down. They’ve removed the £1 electricity meters and towels are also now included. The games room is newly refurbished and I had the honour of being the first guest to use the lovely new gym.
The kitchens are well equipped if you want to cook – but there’s so many places to eat out or pick up a takeaway nearby too. Peckish for fish & chips should not be missed, and the cakes at the Snail’s Pace Cafe are to die for.
There’s lots of beaches nearby and the Camel Trail is a great route for cycling with kids.
We’ll be back for our fifth visit!

This is a truly remarkable place and location. We first came here with our children when they were around 4 and 8 in the 1990s and came back with them annually yearly after that about 3 times. We have now just visited again with our daughter and our grandchild (aged 2). The place retains the same magic but with much upgraded lodges. Granddaughter loved it (as did we all).
Just as an example of the exceptional service, DVD player (occasional distraction for granddaughter) was not working properly. We informed Emma and within a couple of hours, she had got a new one from town.
Highly recommended

Really enjoyed our stay at Coombe mill. The surroundings are beautiful and great to feed the animals with farmer Emma. The games room was a godsend on rainy days and really well equipped. Having toys in the attic of the lodge was a great idea and kept my son very happy. Lovely hosts too. My only quibble is the dining room chairs were not comfy as the legs were loose. Kitchen could have done with more worktop for cooking too. Other than that great holiday and loved the super king bed!

Fantastic location in the middle of nature, surrounded by animals, a brook and very welcoming owners.
Kids can feed the animals in the morning after a tractor ride around the site.
Families can easily explore the area, going to north and south Cornwall in little time.
Lodges are very spacious, clean and equipped with a log burner. Equipment in lodges is a bit outdated but all is working well.
My only recommendation would be to sign post the car entrance to the lodges a bit better.
