Formerly known as Feather Down Looe Farm, Dennis family have farmed Gwel Teg in this idyllic part of Cornwall for over 35 years. Their speciality is dairy farming with 400 cows including Holsteins and British Blues. There also have sheep who lamb in spring. They also grow barley and fatten up cattle for beef. Your canvas hideaways are on the edge of the farm, overlooking a meadow, the ideal spot for a family holiday in Cornwall.
You couldn’t be better placed to enjoy a family holiday in Cornwall, the county where we all want to holiday nowadays. Looe and its beaches and boat trips are a short drive away. Further along the coast is idyllic Fowey with its estuary and harbour. Within easy reach is the Eden Project, nestled in a huge crater with biomes housing the largest rainforest in captivity, stunning plants and exhibitions, which all serve as a backdrop to their striking gardens, thrilling zip-wire and summer concerts.
As well as learning more about how milk is produced, the farm welcomes new lambs every spring - you are welcome to help out with the bottle feeding. There is plenty of space on the farm for youngsters to play and you can still keep an eye on them from the comfort of your veranda. There is one hot tub available to hire if you fancy luxuriating with a soak. The honesty shop has more than enough in it for you to cook up a stew on before you retire to your delicious Feather Down beds.
