Our Stay at Court Farm Holidays in Bude, Cornwall (plus up to 10% discount)

We have just got home from another fantastic stay at Court Farm Holidays.

This was our third stay at the farm in Marhamchurch in Bude, on the North Coast of Cornwall. I found it originally via a google search back in 2015, whilst searching for a holiday spot for a trip back to the UK – and we loved it so much, we booked again the following year. We’ve got to know the family at Court Farm over the years and were very kindly invited back this year, so I could tell you all about it.

So why do we keep heading back?

1 – It’s such an easy, convenient holiday for families

Court Farm really is such an easy, convenient holiday when you have children. When you make the booking, you are asked what you need in your cottage – and these will all be waiting for you when you arrive. Most items are free, some carry a charge of just a few pounds – and the options are vast, with cots, high-chairs, booster seats, bathroom steps, buggies, double buggies, and baby carriers all included.

There is also a room on the farm where you can help yourself to wellington boots in every size, buckets and spades, nets, and windbreaks (just help yourself and return to the room when you are finished). You can also hire or buy wetsuits from the farm.

We always arrange a Tesco delivery for the first afternoon so we can fill the fridge and cupboards too, meaning I don’t even need to think about nappies, wipes, or food for the week either.


2 – The facilities are fantastic for kids

Most mornings at Court Farm start with animal feeding. You gather at the lower gates and follow farmer Vicky towards the animals. Children can feed the goats, pigs and chickens, then head over to brush a pony. The feeding always ends with children taking turns to collect an egg for breakfast the next day. My children (6, 5 and 2) all love this!

After animal feeding, they enjoy spending some time in the outdoor playground, which has swings, climbing frames, an assault course, a trampoline, and several play houses. The tennis courts are filled with bikes, small cars to drive, and scooters too. And inside, there is a small play area for babies and toddlers, complete with soft mats on the floor.

There’s also a covered heated swimming pool, which you are free to use whenever you like. This is really warm, so even small babies would love it.

And just five minutes down the road, you have the beaches at Bude – and the beaches all along the coast.

We really recommend the National Trust Sandymouth, which was about a 10 minute drive – and was really stunning, with rock pools to explore and lots of dramatic coastline to photograph.


3 – We love the accommodation

We’ve stayed in several Court Farm properties now – and the one thing that each of them shares is that they are very family friendly (think stair-gates, baths, and the option to make the beds either double or twin to suit your group) and they are very, very stylish.

Kevin – one of the owners of Court Farm – has a real eye for interior design and you can expect a blend of home comforts and very stylish, quirky touches. Each of the properties has a very five-star luxury feel, but still practical enough to ever have to worry that the children are going to wreck it! You really do feel at home almost instantly.

4 – Holidays are affordable

I researched for quite a while, before discovering Court Farm Holidays back in 2015 – and I really liked the fact that Court Farm makes holidays possible with a range of different accommodation options for different budgets. From smaller barns, to larger cottages, to giant farmhouses, there’s something for everyone.


We had such a good stay at Court Farm – and will definitely head back soon!
