Holiday Cottages Cornwall


Farm walks, fishing pond and amenities

 Enjoy walks or fishing on this traditional working farm. Wildlife is attracted to the farms ponds and woods and there is the opportunity to spot different varieties of animals and birds such as woodpeckers, kingfishers and even perhaps the occasional badger or fox.  A short stroll from your holiday cottage is the ancient carp pond used by monks in the12th cent  (one of the oldest such ponds in the country & featured on a T.V. programme).  It is now set aside as a nature pond and there are often ducks and the occasional heron.  The neighbouring  pond  is used for coarse fishing, restocked during 2010  with rudd, tench and carp (tench up to 3 lbs and carp up to 10 lbs). Holidaymakers usually catch lots of fish. The ponds are an attractive venue for picnics.  There is a footpath/lane through the farms woods and circular walks, linking up with local footpaths.  The lane leading from the farm takes one down a picturesque walk through the Coombe Valley and to the beach at   Duckpool.
