Your adventure begins as soon as you arrive at Lombard Farm!
adventures at lombard farm
Staying in the yurt, tipi or cabin is an adventure in itself and there are plenty of places to explore! There is a family sized hammock, tree maze and of course the wonderful wooden hot tub. You can take a look at what we have to offer at facilities.
adventures within walking distance
If you have never been to the Fowey Valley before, you are in for a treat; from your doorstep there are long and short walks in almost every direction and we have plenty of maps to help you on your way. You can take a quick preview on Google maps.
A 10 minute walk will take you to the lovely River Fowey; skimming stones, watching a lazy heron fishing or if you are lucky seeing a ship navigate its way up the channel. A 20 minute walk through the meadow and along the river will take you to the town of Fowey and on to the Coast Path and town beach of Readymoney.
For the more adventurous, a 50 minute walk (or 15 minute drive) will take you to Lantic Bay, with breathtaking views from the cliff top along the coast and some fine beaches for swimming, crabbing or just lazing by a rock. These beaches are never crowded!
You may find that there is so much to do nearby that you never need to use the car!
Alternatively you can have a more gentle adventure closer to home and stay in the luxury of your yurt for a relaxing massage or just a soak in the hot tub whilst everyone else is getting wet and muddy.
adventures outside the Fowey Valley
If you are keen to travel a bit further and explore the rest of Cornwall there is plenty to see and do. You could always take the train from Lostwithiel which is about 20 minute (taxi) drive from Lombard Farm.
From the spectacular cliffs of the north coast with excellent surfing beaches such as Polzeath, to the artists haven of St Ives with the Tate Gallery and Barbara Hepworth Museum, or even the restaurant of Padstow or Watergate Bay there really is something for everyone and of course The Eden Project is a 'must see' if you have not been there before!
Whether you would like an adventure holiday in Cornwall, getting wet and muddy, or a gentle massage and lazy sunbathe in the hammock, you will be coming to the right place.
