Great holiday for 4 adults and 4 children. Lots of room to be together, and to find your own space when required. Lovely pack of goodies there when we arrived. Everything you need there for a great break away.

A spacious, rustic old farm house with plenty of character. Lots of rooms and space. Very nicely decorated and plenty of room for 10 to be together or hang out in separate living areas. All slate floors throughout downstairs so no need to worry about spillages - lovely new carpet throughout upstairs giving a cosy feel.

Fab house - really interesting & old - children loved exploring. The games rooms were great - so much to do especially when the weather was poor. Welcome pack of cream tea & plenty of milk was much appreciated. We all loved watching the cows being milked & seeing all the calves - many thanks to Olly & his dad for being so generous with their time. Read morePerfect location. Hide

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
