Welcome to Higher Trevinnick Farm

It is with the deepest regret that, in light of the current COVID-19 coronavirus situation in which we all find ourselves, Farmer James Farm Holidays will be closed for the foreseeable future. Hopefully not for too long but we just don’t know and we didn’t want anyone sat at home wondering what to do.

We’ve thought long and hard about this but feel it’s the right thing to do to protect our guests and ourselves in these unprecedented times. Despite the stringent risk assessment we’ve put in place, we realise that even those measures may not prove adequate in halting the spread of this virus. And of course, should anyone fall ill whilst on holiday here, the additional pressure on Cornwall’s healthcare system has factored into our decision.

We have contacted everyone who has booked a holiday with us this year and, should their stay be affected by this closure, as a gesture of goodwill we have offered to carry forward any deposits/payments through to the equivalent week/s in 2021.
Thank you for your understanding and support at this difficult time. We’re not quite sure how we’ll cope financially and mentally – we absolutely love sharing our farm with our guests and will miss the fun, laughter, banter and opportunity to share our naughty farm stories and songs – but the important thing is to stay safe and stay well.

Our farm photos and stories will keep coming on social media so you can keep in touch from wherever you are isolating, and we look forward to welcoming you to the farm once the restrictions are lifted. The magic of Cornwall and our farm will be here waiting for you.

Walk to Port Isaac or the superb St Kew Inn from your fabulous self-catering cottage on the farm – we’re in a stunning location, ideally based for exploring Cornwall

Our two cottages are tucked right beside the farmyard in a peaceful, secluded location close to the delightful market town of Wadebridge and the beautiful North Cornwall coast. A holiday highlight is walking to Port Isaac from the farm to see where The Fishermen’s Friends sing and Doc Martin is filmed, collect your freshly caught fish for tea and enjoy a pint or an ice-cream overlooking the picturesque harbour. Alternatively visit the traditional, equally dog-friendly St Kew Inn – voted one of the UK’s top pubs!

Spectacular views and so relaxing on our traditional Cornish farm

For centuries there has been a traditional Cornish farm here, its history etched throughout the buildings and fields. Both cottages enjoy spectacular far-reaching views over the farmland, and are furnished to the highest four star, gold award standards with every modern convenience to ensure your stay is comfortable and relaxing.

Walk, beach, surf, ride, kayak, coasteer, cycle, shop, dine – the choice is endless

The farm is ideally located for visiting the spectacular North Cornwall beaches and dramatic coastal footpaths. Learn to surf at Polzeath, coasteer or kayak at Port Quinn, ride horses across Bodmin Moor, cycle the Camel Trail, take a ferry from Rock to Padstow, visit Trebarwith Strand, Tintagel or Boscastle – all nearby as are two wonderful farm shops and numerous award-winning and children/dog-friendly restaurants, though some days you simply won’t want to go anywhere!

Help Farmer James every day, feeding our friendly farm animals – a truly interactive and genuinely authentic experience

In the barns and nearby fields are our friendly farm animals – all great favourites with those who visit us year after year. Children, teenagers and adults alike love the freedom of Higher Trevinnick as well as the company of Farmer James – feeding the animals and helping with farmyard jobs every day. A truly interactive experience connecting you with the countryside and farming life. There are no extra charges whatsoever during your stay with us, including for the farm activities – and having just the two cottages means we can more or less tailor the farm experience to what you enjoy most, which often includes a pony ride and tractor drive!

Your pets are welcome too

Your pets are part of the family and are very welcome at Higher Trevinnick at no extra charge – they deserve a holiday too and will love it here just as much as you!
