Planning to go down to Cornwall to continue our walk on the South West Coastal Path my son and his family and I had booked an AirBNB accommodation well in advance. However, two weeks before we were due to go, my son received an email telling him the accommodation was no longer available as the owner had sold the house! As we were going during the Easter school break we were a bit worried but I managed to find a 3 bed roomed cottage that was available at Coldharbour Farm. As it worked out it was much nicer than the other accommodation and much cheaper so we were very pleased about that!
Coldharbour Farm is run by Michael and Eileen Corcoran and it is situated very close to Bodmin village. It is very near the Military Museum and the Steam Railway. An old dairy building has been converted into a number of small cottages and they are all named after birds. (We were in Clough Cottage). On the day of arrival, although the paperwork said we couldn’t book in until after 4pm, I had an email from Michael saying the cottage was ready and we could arrive whenever we wanted. Upon arrival we found a cream tea of scones, jam and cream waiting for us!
The cottage was very cosy and comfortable and had everything we needed. There are lovely pictures on the walls from a local artist which can be purchased.
My grandsons were delighted to find that there was a Games Room where they could play table football, table tennis, darts and snooker. There was also a cupboard full of board games that we could use.
After one very muddy day of walking we were very pleased to use the laundry room. The washing machines are free and the tumble dryers only cost £1.
This was a perfectly situated place to stay and we really enjoyed our stay. I have written a separate review of that weeks walking adventures and if anyone is interested in staying in Bodmin, I would definitely recommend that they consider staying at Coldharbour Farm.
