Bedroom details

Bedroom 1


A luxurious and boutique hideaway with far reaching views of the stunning countryside on the Lizard peninsula, yet close to sandy beaches and coastal towns. This gorgeous property has been lovingly refurbished by the owners (completed in summer 2021) and no detail has gone amiss. This large but cosy property is the perfect retreat at any time of year.

Hidden at the end of a tree-lined drive your destination awaits; through the front door you will be welcomed by the contemporary kitchen with stunning granite work surfaces and exposed original beams, it really is a delightful property. The large island in the kitchen is just the place to perch with your morning coffee from the Nespresso pod machine or an evening cocktail while your loved one cooks you a romantic meal. Enjoy looking down the steps into the gorgeous sitting and dining area with a grand wood-burner and views over the farm and countryside beyond.

Fabulous double doors open to your private patio where you can enjoy long lunches or perhaps dreamy evenings in the little hot tub or maybe sip mulled wine around the fire-pit, meanwhile look out for the resident wren who might pay you a visit.

The bedroom is perfect for a deep slumber - snuggle up in the crisp bedding after a day exploring this stunning part of Cornwall. The en suite shower-room boasts a large shower cubicle where you can wash your sea-soaked skin and unwind.

The Dairy is the perfect place for days out on the water, exploring the coast path or warming your toes in front of a cosy wood-burner. The farm is shared by the owners that live on site and Penvores Barn (4462). It is also home to the owners' chickens, as well as the wonderful wildlife to be discovered in its woods, fields and ponds (please take care with children).

Five minutes' drive from this peaceful retreat is Poldhu beach, a sandy bay popular with locals, surfers and wildlife watchers. This National Trust beach has a small surf school, wonderful walks and spectacular views across Mount's Bay, and a cosy cafe - their hot chocolates are a must and they also do pizza on the beach in the summer months.

Nearby is the beautiful, wooded Helford River and Frenchman's Creek. To the south are the fishing villages of Coverack and Mullion and the popular Kynance Cove. The area is dotted with lesser known beautifully unspoilt sandy coves that are perfect picnic spots. Visit the magical Trelowarren Estate and New Yard restaurant, enjoy wonderful walks at Loe Bar, Cornwall's largest freshwater lake, or wander through the arty coastal town of Porthleven with its historic fishing harbour.

Penvores Farm is on the Lizard peninsula, a fantastically diverse area which encompasses tree-lined rivers, open moorland, undulating countryside and the sea. Great pubs, open gardens, historic buildings, and all manner of wildlife can be seen within a few miles and good walks enjoyed from the doorstep.
