“not that toddler freindly”
Reviewed 5 November 2008 for a stay in September 2008
people found this review helpful

We stayed at trevorrick farm cottages for a week and booked it because on the website it promised to provide just about everything we would need for our two very small children, thus meaning we would not have to pack up the enormous amount of stuff we normally would have to take.
The farm was in an idyllic situation with lovely facilities for the kids outside (as promised), such as great play areas, outdoor toys, farm animals . However, we found the inside of the cottage far from being toddler friendly. There were hardly any high surfaces on which we were able to put things out of reach, there were cleaning products in unlocked c upboards, easily accessible to exploring hands, sharp cornered coffee tables with (a heavy lamp on one) and the stairgate was in a position that enabled our crawler to get up one step and fall backwards onto the hard floor on more than one occasion. The high chair provided was old, the tray cracked and had no harness. Just as well we brought our own travel high chair just in case.
The wonderful assortment of toys promised proved to be a couple of boxes mainly consisting of duplo, which neither of my children have much interest in.
While the owners appeared friendly, there seemed to be so many rules and regulations and strict guidelines about our stay in the cottage, i would not feel comfortable to go there again. Every little thing seemed to be priced to a point where I felt i daren't move incase i got billed for something. While I understand that owners of these establishments have got to guard against abuse of their properties I felt this was a bit over the top.

Thanking our visitor for the great comments on our location and outdoor facilities, but I feel the title given by the reviewer is extremely unfair. We do try to be "toddler friendly", providing stairgates, night lights, baby monitors, socket covers, baby equipment of all sorts etc. However at the end of the day parents must take responsibility for the well being of their children in the living areas of the cottage, and in an unfamiliar setting it is to be expected that children will require more supervision than in a home environment. However, if there are any concerns, we are always on hand to help. I am sorry to bore readers with the detail, but we do need to add some factual clarification to the comments made re the living area of the cottage. "High chair" - I always suggest, by e-mail when confirming that I can provide a high chair, but that guests bring their own safety harness for hygiene reasons (although I can provide one if required). - In fact I had to return a left part of that reviewers safety harness in the post. I had other chairs available that week, but that chair is most compact and comfortable for a young baby and I did explain that there was a small crack on the far rim, well away from the eating area, which didn't seem to cause any concern at the time, otherwise I would have changed the chair. Whilst the chair is an older style wooden one, it is clean, stable and has no splits in the vinyl seat. The family were obviously quite happy to use that chair during their stay given that they left part of a harness attached. "Cleaning products" not a cupboard bursting full of bleach, aerosol and spray products, as implied, but simply a cream cleaner (enviromentally friendly so low in toxicity) and washing-up liquid with a tight fitting closure in an under sink cupboard. - I pointed out the cupboard these 2 products were in on arrival - I never put bleaches or spray products in cottages, but they can be provided if asked for. - What I provide is easy to put on any size work surface or sink drainer if desired. Cupboard locks do not suit the vast majority of guests - we have tried them! If an alternative safe storage place is required, there is a large understairs cupboard which would be very difficult for a young child to open, adjacent to the kitchen. "Toys" - lots of megablocks including plastic animals and push along cars etc, shape sorter, stacking toy, rattling toys and other bits and pieces which in my opinion were suitable, and safe, for the age of children involved (both under 2). That cottage also has a brio wooden railway with it's own play table table stored underbed in twin bedroom! Reviewer also omitted to mention that a selection of children's videos and children's books are also provided, plus a variety of jigsaw-type puzzles. - I always carefully try to suit toys to age to children but appreciate children have different interests. - I could have provided many more toys if asked and would have had some to suit! - I can provide anything from wooden train sets, to meccano and dolls houses. But where there are very young children, I am initially careful not to provide anything that may be unsafe for the younger child. "Stair gate" - If asked for a gate, I always explain that in this cottage the stairgate is fitted at the bottorm of the stairs; as the cottage is open plan it is inevitable that the gate will rest on a step, given the end bannister. The gate is fitted in the lowest position possible and there is little I can do about the fact it rests on a step. If available, I will always suggest that a single storey cottage may be more suitable for families with young children. However many guests do specifically choose 2 storey cottages. I did note when I visited the guests before departure that the reviewer did put cushions on the floor near the stairs, which presumably solved the problem as the parents seemed quite happy for the child to play there. - I could have provided cushions if required, or a thick playmat. All "furniture" has corners. Stick on pads are not suitable for use in holiday cottages - I could have provided a blanket to cover a coffee table if asked, or indeed removed it from the cottage. The coffee table with a heavy stable lamp (which would be hard to knock over) was actually tucked against a wall at the end of a sofa, so would not be easy for a child to reach. The table lamp is provided for ambience, but there is plenty of other lighting, so the table lamp can of course be removed, if not required. I provide a very brief "inventory" of equipment in the cottage. Inventorys are recommended by the inspecting body VisitBritain. Ours is simple and just details numbers of crockery and cutlery plus replacement cost - the main items likely to be lost or broken - so no nasty surprises - everything does have to match!! Charges are reasonable given that often one breakage leads to 6 items having to be replaced - eg £2 for mug and £1 for glass items. - There are only so many spares I can store/obtain of a particular item. We provide plastic beakers and plates for children, and plastic beakers and plates for outdoor eating. I do personally show each guest around their cottage, and try to explain how everything works. I am sorry if this has been misinterpreted by the guest. "Customer feedback" - In addition to encouraging guests to come and see us if they have any problems (as on literature in the cottage), we always personally check with guests the night before departure to ensure everything has been ok during their stay. In the case of this reviewer, at no point during or after their stay were any issues raised with us. If they had been, we are sure we would have been able to resolve them at the time. We find this strange, as the issues are fundamentally about "safety" matters, and we would expect that if guests had "genuine" concern on such a serious matter, any issues would be raised with us in the first instance and not through the internet some time after the end of their holiday. We welcome our guests comments, but do recommend that such comments are made directly to us first, so that we can resolve them. - We really do try our best - guests only need to ask if they require anything. Sadly I believe these comments may have been initiated by my late return of a small item of lost property (part of a high chair harness strap mentioned above) which I found in the cottage some weeks after departure.The reviewers report was made a month after the end of the holiday, just after I returned the item. Some offence appeared taken by the guest, apparant in the tone of correspondence I received, for the slight delay in returning this item, hence the connection? Whilst I did apologise, I do ask guests to carefully check the cottage before departure, as it is not easy for me to subsequently identify and return left items.

“Great location”

Fantastic location in the country just outside Padstow. Cottages are immaculately clean and tidy. Ours had lots of room and as we were travelling with 2 small children it was great for us.
Lots of outdoor things for the children (beware of duck poo!), trampoline was great. (indoor toys by pool could do with a clean!) The swimming pool was nice and warm although only open from 10am to 6pm. We took a dog which we felt wasn't that welcome! The hosts were a bit over the top on the rules for the dog! There is a lot of other small rules to adhere to and it was making me a bit worried all week because there is a £25 if you don't leave the cottage 'as found!'. Overall, a great place, peace and quiet, and ok if you don't mind paying extra for towels and electricty!!! Beaches fairly nearby and camel trail is great for cycling.

Whilst we welcome dogs, we do restrict them to certain cottages and certain times of year. We make no apologies for having "dog rules", in fact we are proud of being careful on this matter, as we wish to maintain standards for all our guests. We always make our main "dog rules" clear at time of booking - and these rules are no different to those of any other establishments that want to maintain hygiene in the cottage and it's garden for all cottage users. Sadly because of a number of unfortunate experiences over the years , in order to continue to be able to accept dogs, we have had to set down in wrtiting what to the vast majority of dog owners is common sense. - we do apologise for this on our "information for dog owners" sheet. This particular booking did give me some concern at first. - In this case the booking was originally for a different cottage and no dog, however the guests then wanted to bring their parent's dog along, as their parents were going abroad, and so I did offer to accommodate the family and dog in a suitable cottage. Whilst I did allow a variation to the original booking to accept the dog, as it wasn't their dog (although I was told they had looked after it a lot) I did feel I had to be particularly careful to make clear what was expected of the dog owners. Indeed it may have been that our guests had not acutally taken a dog "on holiday" before, and certainly had probably not been away with a dog and young family (they had 2 beautiful baby girls), and so may not have known what was expected. At the end of the day we only welcome dogs and their responsible owners! - We do need to protect our cottages and our farm enviroment for all our guests and dog owners must appreciate that. The reviewers were responsible "owners" and would be welcome back. With regard to the £25 cleaning service mentioned, standard self catering booking terms are to leave accommodation clean and tidy "as found". However we do offer a reasonably priced £25 cleaning service option, as we do recognise that guests are on holiday and may not have the time or inclination to leave "as found". This is purely optional. I am sorry if making this option available causes guests concern. We thank the vast majority of our guests for looking after our cottages and helping to maintain standards for everyone. We have a GTBS silver award and are very concerned with protecting the enviroment. We believe that charging for electricity at cost is the best way to encourage efficient usage. This is made clear to guests on our literature.
