The Bull Run is a real favourite with our young families, providing delightful light, airy accommodation, with pretty character high beamed ceilings and sun streaming in on sunny Cornish days.
The open plan living area enjoys lovely views over the lawn to the countryside beyond with its floor to ceiling paned windows. There’s lots of space to stretch out on the two sofas, nestled around the gas cast iron stove, with a spacious modern kitchen area and pretty slate floored dining space. Front facing main bedroom has an elegant double iron bedstead and sunny aspect, whilst the pretty second bedroom has twin beds and charming skylight window – perfect for watching the stars at night! The cottage has full central heating for the winter visitors who come to visit Cornwall out of the season.
With numerous animals and fantastic facilities its a perfect haven for children and relaxing retreat for parents! Children can join in with complimentary interactive animal feeding, egg collecting, arts & crafts workshops and weekly campfires to toast marshmallows (all ages love it!). The little ones will love our indoor heated swimming pool, soft play and play barn as well as our tractor ride on area. There is plenty of outdoor space for running around including our giant play fort for the older children, toddler fort with slide and swings and the little house with play kitchen.
Follow our nature hunt around the grounds or take a woodland walk through the forest of Glynn Barton. Brush up your tennis skills on our hard court using the balls and racquets provided or simply enjoy the view from our barbecue areas and pizza oven cooking station. Spend a night under the stars in a fully equipped tent. Swimming lessons, and babysitting are also available on request. There is so much to do for everyone you will not need, nor want to leave.
We take pride in offering high quality ‘family friendly holidays‘ where children are free to run around and parents are free to relax safe in the knowledge that the nearest public road is almost a mile away and in between is nothing but lovingly tended gardens, wonderful facilities and a host of friendly farm animals. We have transformed the cluster of cottages into a haven of safety and tranquillity.
All the cottages are unique and of a high standard excellently restored from the original stone and slate with beautiful exposed beams. Whatever time of year they are always warm and welcoming with biomass powered heating, solar power and cast iron stoves. The cottages all boast light, spacious and contemporary country-style interiors with comfy sofas, smooth wooden and slate floors, tongue and groove bathrooms and shaker style kitchens. To make it even easier on parents they are all very well equipped with cots, highchairs, built in stair gates, bed guards, monitors, sterilisers, pottys / training seats, baby baths, bathroom steps, play mats & chairs (on request) food blenders and child friendly crockery and cutlery.
The Glynn Barton Kitchen shop hosts an array of locally sourced Cornish produce as well as the renowned Cook home-made frozen meals giving mums a break from the kitchen. In cottage dining is also available and finally those all important spa treatments for ultimate relaxation. There are plenty of buckets, spades, windbreaks, nets and wellies in all shapes and sizes to borrow to free up a bit of boot space!
Whatever the weather we’ve got you covered!
