The perfect holiday for families with young children
Cornwall Map

Tredethick is the perfect holiday retreat for families with young children.

It provides fun experiences, in beautiful scenery, whatever the weather. It’s a place to see and hear your young children come alive and for you to relax and recharge.

Each morning on the farm children can bottle-feed lambs, feed the goats, pigs and chickens and collect freshly laid eggs. There’s an opportunity to ride a gentle pony too. Our child-friendly indoor pool is a toasty 30 degrees and the secluded hot tub garden can be fun for the whole family or a quiet retreat for parents.

Children love the soft playroom with its play frames, shapes and ball pool. Grown-ups love the daily papers, current magazines, fresh Lavazza coffee, comfy chairs and views onto sweeping farmland.

The giant sandpit, puzzles, Ping-Pong and pool in the play barn provide plenty more opportunities for play.

There’s lots of scope for outdoor fun too, with the play-park, giant trampoline, ride-on tractors, balance bikes and scooters.

Tredethick is a place where with young children you can relax, recharge, enjoy and long to return.

In the Rickyard there is a wide variety of livestock to make friends with - usually chickens, geese, turkeys, pigs, goats, rabbits and even our reindeer ‘Comet & Dancer’. In springtime orphan lambs sometimes need feeding with milk, which can be messy but is always popular! When the kids need to let off steam there is a range of grassed play areas, toddlers play equipment, a big Wendy house, our fabulous wooden tractor and a rustic climbing play facility. For the older children there is a sports area ideal for all sorts of games and football.

Our beautiful rural setting is quiet and secluded, but it's easy to use the farm as a base to explore the beautiful island that is our home.
