Fisherman's Arms waterside pub and the Cormorant Hotel (fine food and afternoon tea with fantastic river views) are both located in Golant. Local fish shop, bakery, butchers and deli in Fowey, 5 minutes drive from farm. Also in Fowey quirky tea rooms (try Pinky Murphy's), and a good selection of restaurants and pubs. There is a Barclays cash point in Fowey, at the bottom of Lostwithiel Street.
Asquith's and Trewithan restaurants in Lostwithiel well worth a visit (10 minutes drive).
Asda, Tesco, Sainsbury's and Morrison's are all within a 20 minute drive from the farm. Tesco (Holmbush branch) will deliver to the farm if you wish to place an order online.
Polkerris (10 minute drive) is home to the Rashleigh Inn waterfront pub, and Sam's on the Beach pizza and seafood restaurant. Plus the Polkerris Beach Company for water sport activities. Walk towards Fowey along the coast path & you'll come across many secluded sandy coves, safe for swimming, great for rock pooling. Polridmouth, Coombe Haven and onwards toward Readymoney at the west end of Fowey (toilet facilities and regular ice cream van .. though the ice creams in Fowey are way superior!). Readymoney is 10 minutes by car from farm plus a short walk.
The cottages have individual walled and gated gardens, specifically designed to provide a good degree of privacy from other visitors. All have traditional coal barbecues, chimineas (wood provided), table and chairs. Outside badminton court and equipment, plus table tennis. Children's play area with swings, slide and trampoline (complete with safety net). Small farm petting area with chickens, ducks, kune kune pigs, guinea pigs and rabbits. Eggs can be collected daily.
The 'endless' swimming pool measures 14' x 8', with fully adjustable current to swim against. Great facility for both children, and athletes wishing to continue their training program whilst away. This facility is bookable (at no extra cost) making it completely private for each individual family group. Plus rowing machine, exercise bike and separate sauna room on poolside.
