A COUNTRY WELCOME !
Ken and Pam Davis offer you a warm welcome to their home at Caddy's Corner Farm. Whether you come to bake on Cornwall's incomparable beaches, to walk the glorious countryside or to simply unwind well away from the holiday throng, you're assured of true country hospitality.
|Some would say that Caddy's Corner is
off the beaten track - and that's half the attraction! - yet it lies midway between
the North and South coasts, ideally situated for countryside and sea. Whether
your choice is a remote cove, safe sandy beaches for the children, or some of
the finest surfing in the country you won't have far to go! The Lizard peninsular
with its numerous coves and villages lies due South,and to the North are the spectacular
beaches and bays of Portreath and Perranporth. The great estuary of Falmouth lies
a few miles to the East whilst St.Ives, Penzance and Land's End beckon to the
West. A host of holiday attractions lie within easy reach. Closer at hand, Stithians
Reservoir offers fishing and bird watching, with the village store and many country
inns just a short drive away offering a typically Cornish welcome.
||ABOUT CADDY'S CORNER
Our cottage, which forms the heart of the farm, is about 250 years old and was occupied long ago by a certain Tom Caddy,who was a "Packman",selling needles,threads and other goods in the surrounding towns and villages. Hence our name,which appears on ordnance survey maps of the 19th century. Further back still the place was rumoured, to be an alehouse and, some say, was a staging post for Cornish smugglers moving their contraband from the coast. We continue to dig for barrels of brandy with no luck!
| More certainly, the cottage complex
was built to house artisans who would have laboured long and hard in the Cornish
tin mining industry relics of which abound in this part of Cornwall. During this
century, Caddy's has been worked as a farm and its various outbuildings are now
used to serve the holidaymaker rather than the animals for which they were intended.
It is now a smallholding of some 8 acres which will appeal especially to children
and animal lovers. There are a variety of animals to be found and we actively
encourage children to look and learn. Helping to collect hen and duck eggs or
feeding goats can be a rewarding experience for young and old alike. Our Cornish
hedges unfold their glorious colours throughout the year, beginning with Primrose
and Sweet Violet in March and culminating in the heathers of autumn.
||CARAVANS & CAMPING
Our static caravans occupy a small sheltered garden site with picnic tables and barbeque. They overlook open moorland and fields with views towards Falmouth and The Lizard. The high surrounding hedges are home to many small birds and animals.
|The five caravans are all-electric with cooker, refridgerator, electric kettle, colour television and room heater. They are 6 to 8 berth with one double bedroom and one twin bedroom with bunks. Other berths are made up in the living areas as required.|
|There are also two paddocks,each just
under an acre for tents and touring caravans. They are mainly level and bordered
by Cornish stone walls with hedges atop. Mains water is laid on and there are
electric hook-ups for those requiring them. There is good hard .. ... surface
access to the paddocks and in both cases, the views are. superb.
Some 50 yards from the near paddock can be found a toilet block and washroom containing hot showers, bath, wash basins and power points for shavers and hairdryers, plus a laundry facility with washing machine and tumble dryer provided for your use. Also located here are an iron, ironing board and fridge freezer.
Well away from any other activities, you can learn a little about archery with, perhaps mum and dad too - this is a strictly supervised activity with all equipment provided, and sessions will be determined as and when by us.
|JUST FOR KIDS
We have stocked a playroom with books, toys, games and a colour TV with video for those times when mum and dad need a rest! Our play area is extensive and contains an aerial glide, swings and a complete "adventure playground" There's lots of space for games, too!
