Family Friendly Holidays in Cornwall

Book your perfect family friendly holiday in Cornwall, gather all your loved ones and spend quality time together in the Cornish countryside, surrounded by nature and good company.

We’d love you to join the many families who have holidayed at Rivermead over the fifty years since it first became a holiday destination, many of whom return year after year. We offer the best of both worlds in Cornwall: we’re easily accessible from the A38 and A30 for you to be able to visit Cornwall’s wonderful attractions, but we’re secluded enough for you to enjoy some rest and relaxation after a busy day at the beach.

We have several properties which comfortably accommodate large families of six, or seven, and a smaller one for four guests. You can also book more than one property, for family gatherings, and we can sleep up to 32 guests when all properties are booked together.

If you’re travelling with young children, we have travel cots, a highchair and baby bath available, to save you packing them.

For older children, Rivermead offers a chance to roll down grassy slopes, climb or swing in the trees, build dens, paddle in the stream and explore the woods. We have a fire pit in the woods, with seating logs around it, which is lovely for gathering everyone together at the end of the day, and tiring the kids out ready for bed by sending them off to collect fire wood. We also have a boules court and many outdoor games available which you are welcome to borrow on sunny days.

The Farmhouse

A detached eighteenth-century farmhouse brimming with character and original features. Farm Cottage is the largest of our rentals, popular with families including grandparents and children. This detached four-bedroom property was created by merging the original farmhouse and a stable, both dating back to the 1700s. The cottage exudes charm with its sloping walls, uneven stairs, inglenook fireplaces, and low oak beams. Keep an eye out for the slate etched with the date 1827, nearly two hundred years ago.

The front of the cottage is a sunny haven, perfect for relaxing on the benches while watching the birds or listening to the river. There’s a table and seating for essential holiday barbecues, along with a Weber BBQ available for your use. The Old Farmhouse also features a gravelled seating area and a small, private lawn.
