Welcome to Glynn Barton Holiday Cottages in Cornwall… where even parents of multiple young children can have a great holiday too!

Glynn Barton supports Tamba Members… we offer all year round discounts. See your latest offers on the Tamba website or call us here.

Located in a beautiful woodland setting and surrounded by countryside, Glynn Barton is a hidden gem. There’s eight beautiful cottages in total, each oozing charm and well-equipped for families of small children; with essentials such as cots, stair gates, plastic cutlery, bed guards and highchairs all included in the price.

Each luxury cottage is individually designed, with features such as high-beamed ceilings, stable doors and large character windows combining with elegant interiors and snug sofas to create a stylishly relaxed atmosphere.

The owners, James & Pippa share the 13 acres of child-friendly land with a whole host of friendly farm animals: alpaca’s, pigs, donkeys, sheep, goats and chickens. Children are welcome to join them on their morning rounds hand feeding the animals and collecting the eggs – the highlight of many a child’s stay!

There’s also an indoor swimming pool, soft play barn, Camelot Outdoor Fort, toddler ride-on area, mini playground as well as a huge selection of toys, games and videos in the Games Room to keep the little ones entertained for hours.

Parents will feel relaxed here too; there’s a mid-week maid service and a small shop stocked with local, seasonal food and delicious home-made meals. Glynn Barton offer a babysitting service if you wish to escape for an evening out, or perhaps a soothing massage.

With so many facilities onsite, you would be forgiven for never setting outside of the grounds, however, if you did wish to explore the nearby beaches and attractions you certainly won’t be disappointed.

The countryside surrounding Glynn Barton Holiday Cottages is rich in wildlife and there are several excellent cycle trails nearby. Cardinham Woods offers miles of forest trails, and the terrain is perfect for buggies and bike riding.

Ideally located near both the north and south coastline, Glynn Barton is also within easy reach of many beautiful beaches and there are several excellent cycle trails nearby.

On wet days there’s a variety of attractions to choose from, including the Eden Project, Blue Reef Aquarium, Bodmin and Wenford Railway, Water World, Tate Gallery, Dairyland Farmworld and the National Maritime Museum to name but a few.

May, June, Early July, September and October are fantastic times to visit Glynn Barton Holiday Cottages. Temperatures are perfect for small children, the beaches are much quieter and the warm Atlantic breeze allows for a slightly longer season in Cornwall.
