Silver award winner in the Cornwall Tourism Awards 2017 / 2018 Self Catering Property of the Year category and awarded Highly Commended in their Wildlife Friendly Tourism Business Award category, you will be staying in one of the best locations in Cornwall.
During the Easter holiday period (from 24th March to 14th April ’18) we will be offering guests staying with children the opportunity to attend a ‘beach school’ workshop during their stay. This is suitable for walking toddlers up to 10 years old, and is a variation of ‘forest school’ based down on our river beach – looking for wildlife, signs of wildlife, beach arts and crafts. The sessions will be led by a qualified forest school teacher and timings will be tide dependant!
Kingfisher Barn (named after the Kingfishers found on the Salt Marsh) is an attractive stone converted barn which provides superior accommodation for 4-8 people staying at Lower Marsh Farm. Set over two floors, the top floor boasts a large open plan lofty beamed ceiling kitchen / living area (approx 5m x 10m) with oak flooring, dining table and a fitted kitchen (new in 2015) with all modern conveniences. Outside there’s a private garden area with your own hot tub, a table and chairs for al-fresco dining, a tree perfect for kids to climb on and herbs for adding to your dinner.
Guests have full access to all of our amenities – including tennis court, orchard and picnic area, basketball hoop, woodland and private shingle beach. Also we are Cornwall Wildlife Trust Members which gives our guests access to their wildlife education sessions for children which include mini-beast safaris, rock pooling events and bird box making. We can also offer our guests discounted tickets for the Lost Gardens of Heligan and Eden Project. The farm is managed in an eco-friendly manner and you can find out more about this here – we are happy to explain how this works during your visit.
Children and babies are very welcome and we can provide a variety of the necessities associated with small people (cots, highchairs and more)! We have ample parking and storage areas for bikes and surf boards.
After a day of exploring the Farm and nearby areas, relax with a drink in front of the roaring log burner – you are welcome to use wood from our wood store.
There are so many things to do here and out and about, but for any rainy days, the barn comes complete with a 49″ wall mounted satellite television, Blu-Ray/DVD player and 5.1 surround sound. You can even connect your iPod / iPhone wirelessly to the sound system to play your favourite tunes whilst you cook or eat. There are books and DVDs in the the property for your use.
