Is the home phone in the Vodafone fibre packages delivered over copper, fibre via the ONT, or fibre via VoIP?

VOIP via fibre

So is there any way to use our current POTS handsets (base station with 3 handsets) with it then? An adapter perhaps?

Or do you simply need a VoIP handset?

the voice services are delivered via an ATA port on the back of the router which you can either plug a phone diretly into - or as is standard practice a socket is installed on the wall to connect this port into your existing house wireing (which you use like normal)

...So if you had a second location (cowshed!) that also had a router with an ATA port and it was connected to the first locstion via a PtP wifi link, would the phones also work there? Or is it limited to just the one ATA port on the main router?

Unlikely to work. Firstly the VF hardware would have to support that and I have no idea if it does. Secondly your other hardware would have to support it.
Additionally VF would not support you in trying to achieve this. They would only support up to having a phone line plugged into the back of their supplied hardware.
