“Everything a young family could want from a holiday. So nice we extended our stay!”
Reviewed 6 August 2013 for a stay in June 2013

My wife, son and I stayed here at the end of June and have to say we fell in love with the place.
Steve and Shirley (owners) really have thought of everything for those travelling with young children. The check-in process is as easy as it gets and were were quickly greeted and shown around the facilities. Nice little touches like the honesty shop and free to borrow beach equipment make you feel valued but it's the relaxed and friendly approach that relly gets you into the holiday mood.
Our little boy loved the facilities, he's not long begun to string sentences together and on entering the toy/play room said "wow, dad, thats amazing". The outdoor and indoor play areas are handy and very clean. The indoor pool (if a little cold) was very clean with good facilities. The ride on area was always busy and the lawn in front of the cottages was a great place for the children to play and get to know each other. We spent one full day just using the facilities on site as we couldn't drag our little boy to the car!
Each weekday morning it's animal feeding time, this was certainly a highlight for our son (and us!) who fed pigs, cows, sheep, chickens and a donkey. We also got to collect eggs every weekday which was pretty special, but not as exciting as when our son got to have a ride on Steve's tractor!
The accomodation was well kept, but did show some signs of wear and tear... to be expected with little ones. Still better than your average center parcs though.
We used the reccommended babysitter twice and had some nice meals out, you're not too far away from Padstow, Rock or Watergate Bay if you want a very nice meal out.
The only other thing to add was the location, though not on or near a beach we were only 30 mins from the north and south coast so had days out on both and feel we had the best of both.

“Fantastic holiday!”
Reviewed 2 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

This was our second time back to Glynn Barton cottages in the space of four months! Amazing place, they really have thought of everything... The facilities are great! We took our 17 month old and he had such a great time feeding the animals, swimming, on the trampoline, in the soft play barn, in the play room, on the ride-on cars and on the climbing frame!
Grooms is a lovely cottage situated at the end of the cottages. It has everything you need. The fire was great to have on in the evenings and it was lovely to be able to relax and watch one of the DVDs and play a game that we borrowed from the playroom. Dinner was easy, they have COOK! frozen meals in the shop that you just pop in the oven... Yum!

Will definitely be returning soon! We really didn't want to leave!
