    “The hosting couple from the working farm were very helpful and friendly, usually located working around the farm grounds.”

    The views were fantastic and on our last night we could hear an owl in the lower valley banked with trees.The building layout was very well designed and beautiful from the outside.

    The views were fantastic and on our last night we could hear an owl in the lower valley banked with trees.The building layout was very well designed and beautiful from the outside. Once inside the fire place was very homely and the electric heaters made it very comfortable during our November break. The location was in a very quite area. but care had to be taken driving through the nearby private roads/tracks, but this added to the tranquail setting as you rarely met other road users. We enjoyed Plymouth, Dartmoor, Exmoor, Looe, Polperro and Penzance during our stay returning for meals prepared in the more than adequate kitchen. Very well presented and met our expectations, we easily over-looked a couple of minor issues as they were so minor and the rest of the break was so perfect for our need of relaxation.... The property guest book reflected similar experiences from others who had shared a similar experience......Well Done....!

Penearth Farm Cottages

Liskeard 4.5 miles. These traditional farm cottages are situated on a working farm close to the pretty Cornish village of Menheniot, near Liskeard and only nine miles from the South Cornwall coast including the infamous coastal village of Looe. With fabulous countryside views, plenty of farm activities for children and comfortable accommodation, the two farm cottages provide a fun-filled but peaceful holiday location. The friendly owners welcome guests to explore the acres of woods, meadows and riverside, spending endless days relaxing in the countryside, strolling along the riverbanks or fishing in one of the two ponds, just a 10 minute walk away. For the more serious anglers, Bake Fishing Lakes is a short drive from the farm. On the farm, children can enjoy collecting the eggs from the hens and spending time in pets' corner handling the large collection of rabbits, guinea pigs and birds, including the hand-reared resident owls, and close to Menheniot is an adventure centre with zip wire, go carting and coasteering. These cottages are ideally placed for touring the south of Cornwall with its numerous beaches including Looe, Portwinkle, Seaton Sands and there is the pretty harbour, narrow streets and cafes at Polperro.
