A day in the life of Glynn Barton...

Posted by Sachelle, 22nd November 2019 at 10:06
Glynn Barton, a fantastic family-friendly farm stay in Cornwall.

Glynn Barton is a fantastic family-friendly farm stay in Cornwall with eight award winning holiday cottages and fab facilities to keep the whole family entertained including an indoor heated swimming pool, outdoor hot tub, indoor soft play and a toddler ride on area full of ride on toys. There is animal feeding, egg collecting and you can even get yourself a little baker’s box to enjoy an evening baking in your cottage. If you fancy exploring, you can cycle at Cardinham Woods or head to Laneskin Woods for a stroll.

Pippa, the lovely owner at Glynn Barton has put together ‘a day in the life of Glynn Barton’ offering a little taster of what families can enjoy when they holiday here:  

It’s an early start for those early risers in the family…


Baker Tom delivers:

Yummy fresh bread and pastries delivered lovingly to the door by Max!


Young Farmers Club:

The older children get to help with the mucking out and grooming of the donkeys


Animal Feeding:

Hands on feeding of all our lovely animals by all our farmers- young and old. Everyone loves the donkeys Sweep & Sebastian for their cuddles, but the Alpaca’s Bert & Ernie are super soft too! Help collect the eggs from our chickens in all shapes and sizes to take home and cook up your favourite way.


Imaginative play:

Start in the toddler ride on area to test your tractor driving skills or your balance on a scooter. There is also the pirate boat sandpit to steer.


Family downtime:

Cosy up to a cup of tea in the play barn while the kids take on their friends at table football and Pucket. Grab a game of Lotto or Pictionary to have some family fun. 



Select something scrumptious from our little shop which has been lovingly made by Angels in the Kitchen from Fowey followed by a tub of Treleavens gorgeous mint choc chip ice cream.


Mud fun:

Stretch those legs with a play on the giant fort or dabble in the mud kitchen to whip up your favourite mud pies! Don’t forget to see if you can make it to the middle of our Garden Maze.


Time for tennis:

Borrow our never-ending supply of rackets and balls to test out your Wimbledon skills.


More fun and an afternoon cuppa:

Settle down into Soft play for a breather or let the kids battle it out with table tennis. There is always the trampoline if they still have any bounce left in them.


Time for a dip:

Enjoy the warmth of our indoor heated pool to 32 degrees and outdoor hot tub.


Supper time:

Choose from a BBQ on the front lawn or the pizza oven up at the fort. Both are great family fun.


Movie time:

Borrow a movie from our DVD library for the whole family to watch or take an evening walk around to say good night to the animals.


Snuggle time:

Finally settle in with your feet up in front of a nice fire and relax in our livingly restored 18th century cottages.
