Last chance for cottage holidays for half term


JUST a few Cornish Farm Holidays properties are still available for October half term (week commencing 23rd/24th October).

All are working farms offering high-quality B&B and self-catering holiday accommodation. There’s a huge range on offer on the farms – some have private fishing, and children can watch cows being milked, meet pet donkeys and go on tractor rides.

Many are close to the coastal path for walking and cycling, and nearly all properties are close to Cornwall’s beaches. All properties are graded four or five stars by Visit Britain or the AA.

Bookings are made direct with the individual farms; availability and special offers can be checked through www.cornishfarmholidays.co.uk
