The Family Team  

“Hello!” from the Cambouropoulos family.

 

Coombe Mill Holidays Family Team

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!

I should also point out that all the photos currently here are from my (Fiona) 50th birthday party Nov ’17. Not our usual farm gear it’s fair to say!


Meet the Family

Farmer Nick of Coombe Mill Farm Holidays, Cornwall

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 Cambouropoulos of Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays, Cornwall

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.

Alistair

Hi, I am the eldest of the Cambouropoulos children. Now  19 years old I am an apprentice carpenter working with the local moorland builders who make all the Coombe Mill Lodges. Increasingly my parents are putting my new skills to work on the farm in my weekends, it’s a good way to earn my keep and a job I love. You might find me painting or mixing concrete or even chopping down a tree and turning it into something creative.

I love beach sports, especially sailing and surfing as well as my new sport of boxing.

Felix

Hi, I am Felix, I am 17 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. During the week I’m at college studying for my A levels. I will be going to study business and marketing at University from September 18. In my spare time I love to surf and enjoy music.

 

Theo Cambouropoulos of Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays, Cornwall

Theo

I am 15 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 have the smellier task of cleaning the pig sty each month! I feed all the animal on a Saturday as this is the only day there is not a feed run and Dad has other jobs he needs to do. When Mum and Dad are away me I’m in charge of taking you on the morning feed run to meet and feed the animals, with one of my older brothers to help and drive the tractor. I am studying for my GCSE’s and love drama.

“Toot Toot” I am Guy and one of your train drivers, meet me or my brother Jed over by Coombe halt 6 days a week for a ride.  I am 13 and studying for my GCSE’s at Wadebridge school during the week but on a Saturday morning my sister and me share stripping beds and counting linen head of the cleaners coming in to make the properties spic and span for your arrival.  In my spare time I love to fish in the Coombe Mill lakes and offer rods for sale and fishing lessons for anyone interested.

My great love outside of Coombe Mill is Rugby where I play for the local Wadebridge team.

Jed Cambouropoulos of Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays, Cornwall

Jed

Hi, I am Jed and one of the triplets. You’ll meet me on the evening train rides some days as I share driving with Guy. I am also the resident expert at lighting fires in the cottage and lodge wood burners. If you come in winter remember to give us an arrival time and book logs and I’ll make sure you have a roaring fire to welcome you.

In my spare time I love all sports especially Rugby which I play for Wadebridge with my brother. Sports science is my favourite GCSE subject and I hope to be a PE teacher one day.

Clio Cambouropoulos of Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays, Cornwall

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 help out, usually running back and forth for things Mum has forgotten as well as spotting and lending a hand to any children struggling with the crafts. 

I love all things sporty. I play in the school netball and badminton teams and am working on Grade 5 Tap and Grade 6 Ballet out of school. I also love gymnastics but sadly can’t find a local club to join.

 

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

 

Amber: Duty Manager at Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays, Cornwall

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. Usually you’ll find me helping Fiona out in the office, where I have become the computer guru on all things technical. I also help with 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 .
