About Haye Cornwall

It was always our dream to live in the middle of nowhere so we could give a happy retirement to rescued animals, grow food in a permaculture garden, have the space to reclaim and upcycle, and share our love for nature with others.

The Animals

We value animals and believe we should share our planet with them in a fairer way.

Come and meet our retired beach donkeys, Dartmoor ponies, ex-factory farmed chickens, friendly cats, and a very spoilt street dog.

“Rewilding” is not as simple as letting nature take over. So much has been lost from the ecosystem that it’s tricky to reclaim the necessary balance.

Find out what we’re doing to regenerate our meadows and work with farmers.

I had the most amazing yoga retreat at Haye Cornwall last weekend. We were greeted by the lovely hosts, Kate and Phil who immediately made us so welcome and showed us the beautiful cottage, the grounds and their extended family, all rescued ponies, donkeys, chickens, cats and dog.Then, the lovely Lizzie introduced us to some aromatherapy oils she had made and others. It was interesting to see the different favourites within the group.The following day, after a lie in, we did 3 different yoga classes with the lovely Bre who has the singing voice of an angel and was just awesome. We all picked cards, did a cacao ceremony, wrote some intentions, had a sound bath and burnt our written negative thoughts in a fire pit later on. Bre had made super tasty Ayurvedic food for our meals.Kate took us to meet all the gorgeous animals, told us their stories and what and why they were doing this beautiful but relentless work and Phil took us to the fields around, talking about the regeneration work and so much more. Two beautiful beings who are passionate about what they do with love, care and respect.It was definitely a beautiful yoga retreat with a difference and I will certainly go back as I am already missing every one, especially Zippy, Woody, Coco, the sweet donkeys but really everyone too.Thank you for this wonderful and magical retreat.

I did a yoga retreat at Haye Cornwall last weekend, what a great wellbeing package; aromatherapy, meditation, yoga, cacao and great food. Lovely souls Kate and Phil work so hard to look after the rescue animals and dedicate so much time to visitors, explaining about the animals (donkeys, ponies, chickens, cats and a dog). The accomodation is in the heart of the Cornish countryside, and is beautiful, really well furnished and comfortable and clean. The owners live in the house next door. I had such a lovely time and will be back!

Definitely recommend visiting Haye!Kate and Phil are perfect hosts and are passionate about the work they do on the farm. I loved feeding the donkeys, hearing about May and Grace's rehabilitation, and Harvey was a hit with us all. Such a sweetheart!The food was delicious, and the cottage was beautifully presented...clean, fresh, and welcoming. It is a perfect place to relax.I loved the Pilates classes with Sarah and aromatherapy with Lizzie, and Kates' relaxation class was the perfect end to the day.Thanks for a lovely relaxing stay.I hope we can visit again soon.

I attended a superb Pilates Weekend Retreat at Haye hosted by Kate & Phil. What a magnificent setting for a retreat; a beautiful farmhouse (with 16th century roots) an adjoining cottage and  modern studio all surrounded by  stunning countryside.  The  accommodation and facilities at Haye were exceptionally good,  the Pilates content was just right; taught by a very knowledgeable, amiable and humorous instructor called Sarah. An Aromatherapy session provided by Lizzie and evening  Relaxation sessions by Kate provided balance and variety to the weekend. Added to this was a very interesting walk around the land with Phil who explained a little information on rewilding and shared a few skills in the art of natural fence making.Animal lovers amongst us were in their element petting & feeding some of the rescued animals (donkeys, cats, chickens etc. ) being cared for by this special couple.The vegan food was surprisingly delicious and the homemade bread, jam, butter, fruit juice etc were a bonus.I would definitely recommend this kind of  retreat and thank Kate and Phil for providing the opportunity to escape from the humdrum for a weekend of exercise & relaxation. I must add that the other 5 attendees were lovely ladies who added lots of fun and laughter to the incredibly interesting and enjoyable weekend.I would definitely consider revisiting Haye either for another course or a holiday.

I loved this short break. I was only there briefly -due to family commitments-but I honestly felt like I had a had a proper holiday. I was so relaxed when I left. It was wonderful to see the animals, and how Kate and Phil care for them. The surrounding countryside, calming. I am not a vegan but the food was satisfying, fresh and tasty. The studio was peaceful and friendly. Total blissed out!!I thoroughly recommend this for anyone who needs to relax. Here you will find peace and calm and return to your busy life feeling better.

We had a lovely stay at Haye Farm over Christmas. The cottage was beautifully presented, and we were welcomed by freshly made bread and vegan butter. Kate and Phil were wonderful hosts, helping us with any question or need we had. Would thoroughly recommend!

We were warmly greeted with tasty fresh bread and homemade vegan butter. The cottage was very well presented, super clean and had everything we needed.We really enjoyed getting up close with the rescue hens and donkeys. In the summer I can imagine making use of the big outdoor space.Thanks!

It is a quiet, pretty and peaceful place in Cornwall. Comfortable bed, big bathroom, nice decorated living room and well equipped kitchen that I had good and relaxing time in the cottage. The friendly farm owners, Kate & Phil together with their rescued animals including donkeys, horses, chickens, dog and cat gave us very warm welcome. This is a place suitable for family as well as a group of friends to enjoy the beauty of Bodmin Moor and Cornwall in a leisure way.

We’ve just returned from a wonderful holiday in Cornwall, and we spent the first week at Apple Store Cottage at Haye Cornwall. What a gorgeous place this is!!We absolutely loved spending the week helping to look after the animals: three donkeys, two ponies, ten chickens, and a rescue dog and three cats. The eldest of our two boys (aged 7) was so keen that he dragged me out of bed at 6:30am in the mornings so we could help Kate with the morning routine!The cottage is in the middle of the most beautiful countryside - incredibly tranquil and peaceful. It’s far away enough from towns to feel remote and a proper escape from the daily grind, whilst being close enough to loads of fantastic attractions that it was easy to go out for the day and we were spoiled for choice!We were welcomed by Kate and Phil with homemade vegan bread and vegan butter, and couldn’t have asked for friendlier hosts! We had such a wonderful time and would thoroughly recommend it!💚💚🌱🌱

So zen, so beautiful, so far away from the maddening crowd. I stayed here while on a 5 days UK Photo Tours workshop and I really had a wonderful, relaxing time. Out of the beaten path, surrounded by nature, peaceful and comfortable, thoughtfully decorated and with all the required amenities, the cottage is particularly welcoming, as is Kate and Phil as they introduced us to their rescued and visiting animals, shared their plans for the future and spoiled us with extremely fresh eggs from their chickens every day. A special shout out to their ever young, sweet and cuddly dog!
