Our review of South Torfrey Farm


There are five self catering cottages at South Torfrey Farm, most of which sleep four but with one sleeping six. The cottages feature spacious open plan rooms and each has an attractive wood burning stove. There’s a private patio with each property – perfect for a relaxing evening barbeque – and a good night’s sleep is guaranteed by the king-size beds in each bedroom. Prices are competitive compared with other similar Cornwall venues, with a week at the summer peak for two adults and two children costing around £1000. The same holiday out of season costs around £580.


Children of all ages will enjoy South Torfrey Farm’s indoor heated swimming pool, and the games room where they’ll be able to shoot some pool or play table football. Outside, the 100-acre farm has no shortage of outdoor space, and there are facilities for badminton and table tennis too. For younger children there’s a fenced and gated outdoor play area with swings, slide, playhouse and sand pit plus a trampoline with full safety net. Being a working farm there are also plenty of animals for children to get involved with, including feeding the pigs and collecting freshly laid eggs. It’s also only a short drive to the nearest beach.


South Torfrey Farm has a full Scandinavian sauna to help mum and dad unwind after a busy day of holidaymaking, and there’s also a fitness room with running and rowing machine for those of you who fancy a bit of exercise. The pool, sauna and gym are all bookable in one hour slots throughout your stay. There’s a range of baby and toddler equipment in all the cottages, and the complex is dog friendly with family pets welcome at no extra cost. There’s also free WiFi throughout.


South Torfrey Farm isn’t huge and as a consequence, here at Parent Friendly Stays we’ve seen some complexes with bigger properties to offer. But the attractive prices and convenient location mean you’ll find this child-friendly farm complex is well worth a look if you’re planning a holiday in Cornwall with the kids.

“In the heart of a working organic farm and nestled above the Fowey estuary, our holiday cottages have been stylishly created to offer the perfect base from which to explore the delights of Cornwall.

On the farm there is plenty of space for children to let off steam: an outside playground, trampoline, indoor playroom with pool and table football, and our indoor ‘endless’ swimming pool. Sit back and relax while the children have fun.

With so many great walks, easy access to the coast path and dog friendly beaches, there’s no reason to leave your pets at home. We welcome the whole family at South Torfrey and four legged friends go free.”
