  • Almost don't want to spread the word too much about this little gem. We love Porthcothan for its beautiful coastline and perfect family beach but the discovery of Old Mac's just tops this place off. O...  more »

  • Went for a day visit with our 19month old and he absolutely loved it. Plenty of play areas dotted around the place and all the animals had plenty of space between them so never felt crowded. Only down side is that wouldn't say that they were the jolliest of people and their timing for animals feeds etc were a little off but that didn't really bother us. Apart from that a lovely little place, good food and would definitely return. 😀
  • Great place even on a rainy day. You get pony rides, pedal karts and train rides included in the price along with a wide range of animals to feed. The café is reasonably priced and everything was clean and well kept. Staff were friendly, involving and helpful. Our little one loved it.
  • Love this place been going for yrs with previous owners and new owners Last two years we have camped at old macdonalds farm absolutely love it very clean huge pitches left to your own very private with lots of safe freedom for children. toilet facilities very clean and just the job. Cafe and shop lovely great food delicious hot chocolates with lots of treats with it. Porthcothan beach just a short walk very clean with a cafe who sells the best gluten free seedy flap jack aswell as groceries. Farm is kept very well animals all Happy and healthy the staff are very helpful and always polite and friendly.
  • The staff are so polite and very friendly, highly recommended farm to visit. We searched for a local farm in Cornwall and visited Old MacDonalds Farm, wow what a wonderful experience. The animals are well looked after, the complex is simple, well maintained and effective. Restaurant was incredibly clean and well maintained, the food was also a five star service, delicious! Kids had fantastic fun petting and feeding the animals. Great business ethos and outstanding customer service, we will be revisiting every time we visit or favourite holiday location.
  • Great for kids - mainly younger ones. It's one big field with animals around the edge and things to play on in the middle. There's a cafe/shop and toilet/baby changing facilities. We were able to let our 22 month olds run around safely. Really enjoyed it
