Farm holidays in Cornwall

Traditional farm holidays in Cornwall are the ultimate escape – experience rural life up close, indulge in the best of this foodie county’s local produce, and let the children get stuck in to all the activities laid on especially for them.

Cornwall is an excellent place for farming, with mild frost-free winters and early springs creating a longer than usual growing season. The county’s varied landscape ranges from the wilds of Bodmin Moor to the rolling hills and secluded estuaries of the south, so farmers can produce everything from fruit and veg through to cattle and sheep.

Farm holidays in Cornwall are perfect for foodies. The lush grassland areas are ideal for grazing, and Cornish cows are renowned for producing the rich, creamy milk that makes the area’s delicious ice cream and world famous clotted cream. Cornwall is also well known for apple juice and cider making, thanks to the tradition of maintaining a small orchard on each farm, which historically supplied the estate’s workers with something to quench their thirst.

The beauty of Cornwall’s geography – long and thin, with a considerable coastline – means that you’re never far from a good beach (many of which are dog friendly) or cliff top view. Many of Cartwheel’s farm properties are located on the coast itself, and even the ones based inland are just a short drive from the sea.

Farm holidays in Cornwall offer visitors a chance to experience rural life at its best, with plenty of activities for children in particular. With tractor and trailer rides, opportunities to feed the animals and collect eggs, and a selection of indoor toy barns and outdoor adventure spaces to play in, you’ll never have to worry what to do with your little ones.

And while they’re having fun, the adults can enjoy traditional, locally made food (including the classic Cornish cream tea), explore the beautiful countryside, or try a spot of fishing or canoeing, not to mention discovering all the other attractions Cornwall has to offer.

Cartwheel’s Cornish farms include everything from specialist toddler-friendly self-catering apartments to high spec barn conversions for romantic breaks, character cottages with beams and log fires and ancient farmsteads reminiscent of Cornwall’s long and colourful history. For rest, relaxation and plenty of fun, you can’t beat farm holidays in Cornwall.
