On our first night there we went for a wander around the grounds and the children were delighted to find this fantastic play area. There was a pirate ship and a trampoline and lots of muddy puddles for the little one to jump in (though these are weather dependant!) It was hard to get the children out of there but as it was getting late, and we were all starving I

I mentioned one of the play areas earlier; well that's not the only one. There was another outdoor play area right next to our lodge. The children would go racing off to it at any opportunity. My oldest just loved the zip wire and the younger two loved the swings and climbing frame. There's a baby swing here too which my little one thoroughly enjoyed.
If the weather is really bad there is an indoor play area. We did have a look but never used it as, even though we stayed in October, the weather wasn't too bad, and even if it was raining the kids didn't care and would be outside playing with their waterproofs on.
We had lots of fun at Coombe Mill but we did spend some time exploring the surrounding areas. It took us a while to get used to the narrow country lanes (though I do think that some of them could have been avoided if we hadn't followed our sat nav!), but we found some absolutely beautiful areas. From Port Isaac on a drizzly day......
To the amazing Polzeath beach. Who would have thought that it's October!! The children adored it here.
We ended our week with a visit to Padstow for fish and chips, followed by ice-cream.
Rain or shine, there is so much to do whether you stay on the farm, or go exploring. This was my first visit to Cornwall (and Coombe Mill) but it certainly won't be my last.
