Can't recommend this enough. Great cottages which are very well kitted out, excellent facilities and activities for families every day. All the farm staff were very friendly and informative. Well worth every penny A+ only bad comment is that the play area and play barn are very dated and could do with a revamp but still very enjoyable.

We stayed here recently after deciding to go for a more "local" option than Spain or the Balearics. The Olde House was recommended by a friend of my wife's, who has stayed there on a number of occasions. Obviously we checked the place out on Trip Advisor and noted the positive reviews, noting quite a few "rave" ones- you know,...

What can I say about The Olde House? It's our 10th year now and the kids still love it here. We stayed in Poppy (again!) and it really is home from home. The scones upon arrival are a God send after 4+ hours on the road and the cottage is spotless. We had very few problems but the ones we...

Our third time staying at Penpot Mill with friends. A great welcome as well with a home made cream tea. The house is always clean and tidy and great for families. The children love the pool and there are some great walks close by for the dogs. Looking forward to our next visit.
