Tredarrup Farm Holiday Cottages
All-Inclusive Luxury Self-Catering Holidays
self-catering holidays with a difference
Treat yourselves to an all-inclusive luxury self-catering holiday at Tredarrup Farm. Because we believe self-catering shouldn’t have to mean cramming the car with everything bar the kitchen sink!
Self-catering holidays are very popular – and with good reason. Having your own space, and the freedom and privacy to please yourselves in a relaxing home-from-home environment are just some of the reasons to choose to a self-catering holiday cottage.
But, let’s face it, staying in a luxury hotel also has its pluses. Not least, that feeling of escapism that comes from being able to just throw some pyjamas and a toothbrush in an overnight bag, without a care for the boring everyday stuff such as loo roll and bin bags!
Well, here at Tredarrup Farm we like to think we bring you the best of both worlds.
All-inclusive luxury self-catering holidays where we’ve taken care of everything for you. Where you can arrive to a kitchen full of your favourite foods and a bathroom burgeoning with loo rolls and luxury toiletries. So you can finish work, pack that overnight bag and escape.
You’ll find your cottage equipped with everything you might need whilst you’re here. We’re generous too – there’s enough of everything for the duration of your stay, not just your first night. Plus you’ll find lot of lovely luxury extras that we hope will make your holiday feel just that extra bit special.
We like to think of it as self-catering with knobs on!
In the Kitchen
We provide a welcome pack for your arrival that contains: a pint of Cornish milk, some freshly baked bread, Cornish butter, eggs from our hens, locally produced apple juice, Cornish tea and filter coffee, some Lavazza espresso pods for your coffee machine and a home-made cake or scones. So, once you’ve unloaded your car, you can sit down and enjoy a restorative cup of tea or coffee and a slice of cake. If you have any special dietary requirements then please let us know in advance and we will do our best to supply alternatives.
In your kitchen
We provide sea salt and black pepper, sugar, olive oil, kitchen roll/paper towel, cling film/Saran wrap, aluminium foil, dishwasher tablets, washing-up liquid, a washing-up sponge and cloth, tea-towels/dish towels and an oven mitt. There are also plastic tubs, some ice packs and a cool bag should you wish to take packed lunches on your excursions. There’s no need to bring bottled water with you either – we have our own private supply of pure fresh springwater. Nothing added, nothing taken away, just filtered and far nicer tasting than tap water. Flasks and cups are provided so you can take hot or cold drinks with you on your day-trips without the need for plastic bottles. Under the sink you will find a small selection of cleaning products should you need them.
Food & Drink
We’re big fans of shopping locally to reduce food miles, support small local businesses and reduce unnecessary packaging. Thankfully, there are lots of local Cornish businesses delivering to us here at Tredarrup.
A family run catering company makes excellent quality, delicious, fresh, hand-made meals, prepared using local ingredients. These are then frozen and delivered to your cottage ready for you to put straight in the oven whilst you unpack – particularly useful for your first evening but also great for mid-week if you’ve been out exploring all day. We’re very happy to take delivery for you prior to your arrival. A private chef service is also available – ideal for big family celebrations or birthday gatherings. BBQs, Easter lunches, buffets or just a restaurant quality meal for two can all be enjoyed in the comfort of your own cottage. For further details of both services click here.
There’s also a local farm shop that will deliver fresh Cornish produce, along with everyday essentials, to your cottage ready for your arrival – they even unpack and put it away for you! You can order online at www.food4myholiday.com. This is particularly useful if you’re visiting us from overseas and don’t have a UK supermarket account.
The Cornish Food Box Company deliver boxes of beautifully fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, fish and dairy to us.
Cornwall produces some amazing wines, beers and spirits too and these can all be delivered from our excellent local wine merchant, Wadebridge Wines, ready for your arrival.
We’re also happy to take delivery of a supermarket shop on the day of your arrival, so there’s no need to pack lots of food in the car or trawl round a supermarket when you arrive, and we’ll put any chilled items in your fridge/freezer for you. Waitrose, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrison’s and Asda all deliver to Tredarrup – just let us know your delivery time slot in advance.
In the Living Room
You’ll find a selection of books, magazines and games in each cottage, plus a notepad and pen. Netflix is available free-of-charge and there’s also catch-up tv available. You’ll find an Ordnance Survey map of the local area and some guidebooks and printouts of walks in North Cornwall.
In Mill Barn there’s a DAB/Internet radio with Bluetooth speaker in both the kitchen and the snug. In all other cottages there’s a DAB radio with Bluetooth speaker, so don’t forget to load some music onto your device to play whilst you’re here. Each cottage has a standard USB socket so you can just bring a charging cable and leave the bulky plug at home. There are also wireless phone chargers with bluetooth speakers in the bedrooms – 1 in both The Wagon and Shippon and 2 in both Mill Barn and Stable Cottage. We also have a few worldwide-to-UK plug adapters available – please let us know if you would like one during your stay.
There will be a basket of logs in your cottage for your first evening or two with some kindling, newspaper and firelighters – please help yourself to more from the log store in the courtyard outside the cottages – Mill Barn has its own log-store under the outdoor seating area. A bag of eco-friendly, locally sourced charcoal is also provided for your barbecue.
In the bedroom and bathroom
Luxury 100% Egyptian cotton linen is provided for the beds, which will be made up for your arrival. If staying in Mill Barn or Stable Cottage please let us know if you would like the beds made as doubles or twins. We provide a lovely fluffy white bath sheet, hand-towel and face-cloth per person. If you’re staying with us for longer than a week your bedlinen and towels will be changed part way through your holiday.
In your bathroom you’ll find a range of luxury natural toiletries from Bramley: hand soap and lotion, shower gel, shampoo and conditioner, plus bubble bath in Stable Cottage and Mill Barn. We also provide plenty of environmentally friendly loo roll. There’s a hairdryer in each bedroom too.
In our cottages for couples, Shippon and The Wagon, we also provide spa-style bath-robes for relaxing in after a shower or for lounging in on a Sunday morning with your complimentary Sunday newspaper!
We remember what it’s like to travel with children, so to lessen the load we can provide travel cots, high chairs, booster seats for the kitchen table, bed guards, changing mats, microwave sterilisers, plastic cups and bowls, non-slip bath mats, toddler loo seats, a baby bath and bathroom steps to reach the sink. If you would like any of these do please let us know well in advance of your arrival so we can reserve these items for you and have them ready in your cottage. Travel cots have a fitted waterproof sheet. The only things we’re unable to provide are cot linen and cot blankets because of safety regulations so please bring your own along with you.
Fireguards can be provided on request. Mill Barn also has stair gates to go at the top and bottom of the stairs – all our other cottages are on the ground floor.
For your four-legged friend we provide water and feed bowls, plus a wipe-clean feeding mat to catch any spills. There’s a roll of plastic-free eco-friendly poo bags too. In the utility room is a Mud-Daddy hand-held shower for washing off sandy paws and in your cottage you’ll find a small bottle of Bramley dog-shampoo and some dog towels for drying off afterwards. There are fleece throws for the sofas and/or bed and a identity tag for their collar with the farm’s contact details on it, just in case. Plus there’ll be a welcoming treat or two!
In the Shared Utility Room
There’s eco friendly laundry detergent and fabric softener that’s kind on the skin for the washing machine in the utility room. There’s also a tumble dryer here, drying racks/clothes airers, an iron and ironing board. Outside there’s a washing line in the shared garden area and you’ll find a tub of pegs under your sink. Hopefully this will minimise the amount of clothes needed to pack for your holiday. We raise money for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution who rescue lives at sea and provide a valuable lifeguard service on our beaches in Cornwall. They’re entirely funded by donations and in the utility room you’ll find a lifeboat collection box. We kindly ask all our guests to please donate £1 for each use of the washing machine and tumble dryer to this wonderful life-saving charity.
There are some outdoor games kept in the utility room, such as badminton, swingball, boules and quoits. We have some children’s bodyboards and adult/teenage traditional Cornish wooden bellyboards too that you’re very welcome to take to the beach, along with some windbreaks, buckets and spades and crabbing lines. A first aid kit can also be found in the utility room, as can a vacuum cleaner should you need one.
Should you have any questions before your stay regarding what to bring, or what not to bring, or what’s available locally then please do drop us a line – we’re always happy to answer any queries you may have.
