Less than a mile as the crow flies across the countryside from the sandy beaches at Gwithian, this traditional farmhouse is the perfect base for a relaxing holiday in this beautiful part of Cornwall.
Two spacious bedrooms can sleep up to five guests and with two dining-rooms for spending time with family or friends, either in front of an open fire on a cool summer evening or playing games at the dining-room table as the sun sets for the night, there is a comfortable space for all.
Located across the courtyard from the owner's barns on their working farm, your neighbours are likely to be some of their beautiful Jersey cows who share with you the wonderful views from the garden across to the three miles of beaches at Gwithian sands all the way down to Godrevy lighthouse.
Within a mile of the farmhouse you can be on the beach surfing the waves and enjoying a hot chocolate afterwards in one of the local cafes, or buying locally grown and reared tasty produce at one of the nearby farm shops and, when you return home after a day out exploring or on the beach, this welcoming farmhouse is the ideal home-from-home.
With some of the best beaches and scenery on your doorstep, wonderful galleries and gardens to visit and only a short drive into nearby St Ives and the Hayle Estuary, a holiday here has so much to offer; do as little or as much as you want and return home with great memories of a Cornwall holiday well spent.
