Waterloo Farm

Waterloo Farm boasts spacious accommodation with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and is centrally located for visiting all of Cornwall and Devon, within very easy reach of the sandy beaches and rugged cliffs of the North Cornwall coast. There are numerous award winning restaurants, local food festivals, gardens and golf courses to visit, among many attractions easily reached within the area, such as The Eden Project, Plymouth Aquarium, and King Arthur's Castle at Tintagel, providing fun-filled action the year-round. Alongside the farm with its magnificent livestock and amid colourful hedgerows and flowers, live an abundance of wild birds, butterflies and animals such as foxes, otters and badgers. A wildlife hide overlooks the River Ottery for peaceful viewing outdoors, or should you wish to stay within the cosiness of the interior, the natural beauty can be viewed from the TVs based in every cottage. Webcams have been carefully set up around the farm, so you may just behold swallows eggs on the verge of hatching or baby bats leaving their nursery. There are lots of fun-filled activities on the farm as well as acres of lush Cornish countryside and two miles of riverside walks to explore. Try clay pigeon shooting or river fishing and enjoy the wonderful outdoor heated swimming pool, games room and giant sandpit. Meet the lovely farm animals on-site, to your surprise there may be calves and lambs to feed or eggs to collect, depending on the time of year you visit. Consider a stay on Waterloo Farm for an unforgettable family holiday.
