June 2015 - Gary Harper

Thank you all very much for what was a wonderful holiday this past week, we had an amazing time and the children enjoyed it immensely, so much so that they are both rushing round the garden being Farmer Nick!  You guys really have created something special and it was great to experience it.

June 2015 - Andy, Mary-Ann and Jack

Thanks for a fantastic time. We really missed the feed run this morning!  


May 2015 - Julie Vertessy

Just to say a big thank you for a simply wonderful week at Coombe Mill (Willow). You were all so welcoming and the cottage was lovely. 
The farm is beautiful and was just perfect for Grace. We have some wonderful memories from our week and touches like the fairy garden, the train ride and the mud kitchen make it such a special place - toddler heaven ! We really hope to return. The feed run was wonderful and Nick was just great with the children.

I'd Just like to say that we made it back o.k, having just had a memorable, wonderful, experience of staying at the farm.
My daughter had a fantastic time driving the tractor and feeding the animals', with farmer Nick and farmer Gill she was disappointed to leave, however so was Grandad.
We hope to see you again in the not so far distance future, you and your family made us feel very welcome!! 
Thank-you so much for all your help.  Take care. Cassandra & Grace

This lovely family found us via twitter and wrote a wonderful review of their "Best family holiday ever" quite unprompted. You can read their post here

April 2014 - Fiona Lee

We all loved our week with you. Cillian is this morning asking to go on the tractor ride again! Both kids are full of chat about everything we did during the week. And what a great family you have. All of your kids are so genuinely lovely and friendly. 
Good luck getting the new Tree Roots cottage (mansion?!) up and running in time. It looks fab. Hot tub is a brilliant idea. 

February 2014 - Jennifer Slatter

We just wanted to thank you for another lovely stay at Coombe Mill and all that you do to make it such an amazing place to come and relax and be with the family. We love coming and you have made it so special!
Jennie, Steve and family

December 2013 - Lucy Barham

I just wanted to say THANK YOU so very much for a fantastic Christmas holiday we will remember for years to come.  It really was quite special and we were all sad to leave.  Thank you also for a very warm welcome and for baking Thomas the scrummiest dairy free birthday cake ever!
The boys have been telling their teachers about their special Christmas and William has encaptured his class mates with tales of Farmer Nicks "bumpy" tractor rides.
I have been quite smug in letting our friends know what a great Christmas break we all had :o) I will definitly be recommending you.

September 2013 - Suzanne Dennis

Just wanted to send you a quick message to say thank you for the wonderful holiday we just had at Coombe Mill.  It is like you have thought of everything to make the perfect holiday for families with young children!  The accommodation was ideal and safe.  We felt so relaxed in Honeysuckle and the children loved their play-den. 
And, of course we all loved the feed run and meeting all the animals.  It was so nice to see the boys getting up close the animals each morning.  I think we all enjoyed deer-hunting the most!  It is so nice be able to explore our grounds as we please too.  The boys loved doing a bit of fishing with your nets and giving the pigs their scraps for tea each evening.  And of course all the play parks were a big hit too!
We still have a lot of Cornwall left to see so there is no doubt we would use Coombe Mill as our base again and we will definitely recommend you to our friends. 

September 2013 Claire Goodhead 

Thank you for a wonderful holiday!! You have the most wonderful place at Coombe Mill.  The accommodation is beautiful and it was wonderful to have a play loft to amuse Alex while we relaxed downstairs. I've no doubt we'll see you again for a holiday soon!

July 2013 - Sian To

LOVE your place. We've stayed in many places in Cornwall, yours is the best by far. Read more of Sian's visit on her blog here

For the last few years we've spent Easter and the October half term in various child friendly cottages in Devon, Cornwall or Dorset. Coombe Mill is the first venue that we are all keen to revisit. You have got it just right, the children absolutely loved it and when they're happy we're all happy. 

September 2012 - Sarah Lawless

We had an amazing week at Coombe Mill. We were so impressed by the accomodation and facilities, as well as loving meeting the animals. We are recommending you to all our friends and shall certainly return ourselves.

September 12 - Neil Richards

We have been coming here since 2007 when we were brought by friends: Genie, our silly spaniel was 10 months old. Genie is now 5 1/2 and has been back a further 5 times: we have already booked for next year when we will be bringing back the friends from 2007!
We really love it here; everything about it is so peaceful (I love it when complete darkness comes) with virtually no traffic noise. We nearly always stay in Eden and it's like a second home for us now. The morning feed-runs are fantastic; I have been once with a friend's little daughter (that was 2 years ago when she was 2 and she still talks about Farmer Nick and Houdini the little goat). I was raised in Cornwall, so am obviously slightly biased about my county, but for value for money, friendliness and access to great walking (also known as trying to tire Genie!), we would have to go a long way to beat Coombe Mill.

Finding a holiday that allows us, as parents a break, and keeps a 4 year old and a 12 year old happy is a challenge in itself, Coombe Mill delivered on all counts!

Stacey is about to turn 10 and we have been coming since the very first day you took over and she was a baby in arms. Everything is always scruplesly clean - I wish we could come more often!

May 2012 - Corrine Lucas

Perfect...so much more than we expected! The welcoming nature of the hosts and the charming atmosphere is second to none. Cornwalls best kept secret!!

May 2012 - Nikki Black

February 2012 - Andrew Tattersfield

We returned yesterday from another lovely holiday at Coombe Mill, many thanks for making this such an enjoyable break for my family.


November 2011 - Mathew Horne

We would like to thank you, Nick, Ted and everyone else at Coombe Mill for a wonderful week. The holiday completely lived up to our expectations - which were very high! Felix in particular loved every moment and since returning home has been asking to go back to the "holiday farm" and to see his favourite rabbit "Brownie". I'm sure we'll be back one day as I expect he and Sylvie wi'll enjoy it even more when a little older and bigger.  

October 2011 - Lakey Family

Thank you guys so much for yet another fantastic holiday from the Odells and Lakeys. Been coming to Coombe now for over 16 years and always have such a wonderful relaxing time. Lovely to see how your family are consistently making improvements each year by adding new animals, accommodation etc. Your enthusiasm is the same as when you first took over which is brilliant. Coombe will always be a holiday favourite with us and we will be back!!! xx

October 2011 - Camilla Cary-Elwes

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for our two-night stay last week in the gorgeous Honeysuckle cottage. We had such a fabulous time. Really idyllic and such a wonderful place for our son Wilfred to explore. Have been raving about it to all the other parents I know! I hope we'll be back next year for a full week.


September 2011 - Rachel Prentice

A fantastic place to go for a family holiday. The children can really get involved and dont want to go home! My little boy loved it and cant wait to go back next year.


September 2011 - George Wright 

Thank you for a great time, excellent place enjoyed by all. 


August 2011 - Sarah Shepherd

We had our best ever family holiday with you (so much better than Euro Disney!!). We’re hoping to come back again next year.

August 2011 - Sarah O'Sullivan

We returned on saturday from a weeks holiday at Coombe Mill. We all had a wonderful time, we have two children one pre school and one at school and they both enjoyed the holiday. Although we were busy with visiting animals, going to the play areas and meeting new people, it was a very relaxing holiday. We felt no urgency to dash anywhere or fill our days with days out as there was so much to do on the farm and our children were content with being there. Our youngest daughter loved the rabbits and the peacocks and the eldest thought farmer Nick was great. The feedrun was brilliant and Farmer Nick gave us lots of information and made a little girl very happy on her final day by being very aware that all she wanted to do was find a egg and he (very secretly) made sure she did - thankyou farmer Nick! We even used the key stage worksheets which our eldest loved - all very well thought out. We stayed in the riverside lodge, which was what it is advertised as - small and basic - but it met our needs perfectly. We were all sad to leave and hope to return next summer.

August 2011 - Darren Saywer 

My parents started visiting Coombe Mill back in the 60's & 70's and took my brother and I many times when we were younger. My wife and I have just returned from taking our own children there for the 5th time. Thanks for a brilliant week. The kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves and are desperate to come back next year. Thanks to Farmer Ted too, who was brilliant on the feed runs! Also followed his advice and had a really good 4 hour journey home!  


June 2011 - Rosemarrie Barton 

Have just got back from a lovely holiday at coombe mill, kids really enjoyed themselves. Beautiful setting, great fun with the animals and have booked to come again next year, thank you for making it a great holiday. 

June 2011 - Dawn Hennessy

Hi farmer Nick and Fiona, just wanted to say that we're home from having the most wonderful and magical week at Coombe Mill. We were all very sad to be leaving but hope to see you all again very soon. Take care and all the best, the Hennessy family.
