Higher Lank Farm Four Night "Special Breaks"

Due to the success of our Four Night Special breaks in previous years we are offering them again for 2017. All our animal activities and the tractor and trailer high tea will be as before, it's just the meal element that is changing a little. Please phone or email for further details or keep an eye on this page. Our special breaks allow families who do not have the time to spend a whole week with us to enjoy all the experiences we usually offer in our 7 night stays.

You can add an extra night or two (Bed and Breakfast only) to your Special Break? Your toddlers can feed the animals for an extra day!

We also offer allergy friendly breaks, please call to discuss your requirements or hop over to our allergy page.

If the dates below don't match your holiday dates we are happy to add more breaks other bookings permitting.

2017 special breaks:

8-11 April inclusive Big Meadow available.

14-17 April inclusive Wisteria and Big Meadow

28 April-1 May inclusive Big Meadow available.

more dates coming soon or please get in touch with your preferred dates and we will create a break if we can.

Please get in touch if you don't see the dates you are looking for on this list and where ever possible I will create a break to match.

Contact us for a tailored Special Break for you and your friends - book the whole house and choose your own dates! (Subject to availability.)

Day 2
Breakfast served from 8-9am (early cereals available from midnight!!)
Morning animal feeding... and a chance for your children to enjoy a pony and trap ride with Pippa the pony. Lots of free time to...

Cross the river on the little car ferry and head to the Woolly Monkey Sanctuary in Looe*
Sunday eating out (there is no evening meal service at the farm)

If you prefer a Sunday roast, Bowood Golf Club, Camelford, is a great children friendly option with a really good carvery from 12-2pm. Best to book if you need high chairs or to eat at a particular time. Trelawney Garden Centre, Wadebridge, and Rosarrow Golf Club near Polzeath, also offer carveries.

In the evening

Why not try a pub - The Old Inn St Breward serves a carvery all day and evening * or St Mabyn Inn*
