  • "After an initial panic about highchairs and stair gates."

    We had a lovely week away. The cottage was immaculately clean toasty warm and a lovely base for our family. The owners have thought of everything and we xiyhd if asked for more. We have been staying in Cornwall over 30 years and this was the best equipped cottage. The location although remote was perfect to explore the area. The children loved the calves, seeing the cows being milked and the cats and dog. The play equipment was a lovely addition as was the games room. Thank you for the cream, milk and the delicious crumble. We will definitely return as although we only left yesterday it already seems too long. Thank you again for sharing your farm abd cottage with us.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Mudgeon Cottage."

    The kids loved watching the cows being milked and feeding the calves. The puppy was also very cute. Not an experience you get at most holiday homes. They also loved the play area. There are so many amazing places to visit close to the farm, we didn’t get to them all. It’s a stunning area of Cornwall. The owners are really welcoming and have great knowledge of the area. We also got a fruit crumble, clotted cream and milk from the farm on arrival. We would highly recommend staying here!

  • "We have just returned from a glorious week staying on Mudgeon Farm ."

    The house is beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean with four excellent size bedrooms . It well equipped and both child and dog friendly with great seating areas and gardens . Added bonus was to be able to visit the calves and newborn farm kittens which our youngest family members adored. It is set in beautiful countryside and close to amenities if you need them. Jacky is a brilliant host and really helpful - overall we would have no hesitation in recommending Mudgeon Cottage as a great place to stay.

  • "Mudgeon Cottage had everything we needed for a lovley week away."

    Situated in a beautiful part of Conwall in easy striking distance of Praa Sands, the Helford river and Porthleven. The cottage with much history, has an adequately equipped kitchen, which made cooking for the family using the local fresh fish, lobster and veg, availble from near-by Curnosashimi and Gear farm, a pleasure. The home-made crumble and clotted cream left for us on arrival, were also very welcome. Our only 'even better if', would be new of set of cues (no tips!) and pool balls for the games room.
