  • "We have just returned from a wonderful week at Hingey Farmhouse, what a beautiful house in a fabulous setting."

    The owner was very friendly, checked in on us the first night, which was lovely. When we arrived, the fresh flowers, scones jam and cream were a lovely touch and being able to make a cup of tea after a very long drive as there was milk available, was very welcome. We really enjoyed our stay, we had plenty of room and our 10 month old grandaughter will miss doing crawling laps around the huge kitchen! All in all, we would totally recommend a stay at Hingey Farmhouse.

  • "We really liked the location and the local beach at Church Cove."

    Hingey was ideal for a family holiday with a toddler. Lots of space and felt very safe. The owner was friendly and helpful but not intrusive. The kitchen had everything we needed and we particularly liked the large comfortable sitting room

  • "What a lovely property."

    Plenty of room for the 9 of us. A lovely big table for us all to sit around and eat at together. Plenty of plates and cutlery to cover breakfast and dinner before the dish washer goes on and a seat for everyone in the living room. A nice big smart tv in the living room. Surprisingly good wifi. We all slept well in the comfy beds. The kids loved the table tennis and playing on the swings at the front and we had a lovely walk along the coast to Porthleven and back. Jane was a wonderful host. Thank you for a lovely holiday

  • "We had an incredibly good holiday and being based at Hingey Farmhouse was a particularly good base to tour around Cornwall, Hingey Farmhouse was a comfortable and welcoming home for the week, the owners were on hand and being a working farm were only too pleased to show us around the farm and show us the workings of milking the cows and letting our granddaughter pick eggs from the chicken coup."

    There were only a couple of issues, the kitchen sink was leaking which we reported and the front and back door yale locks had obviously been loose for a while (which I fixed in a couple of minutes)

  • "We had a lovely week."

    Lovely farmhouse in a perfect location, comfy beds, kitchen very well equipped and the games room and garden was a big hit. Jane was very welcoming and we enjoyed the cream tea on arrival. We unfortunately didn’t manage to visit the cows being milked which I really wish we had but it was either pouring with rain or we were out at the time of the milking, making the most of the sun while it was out. there are a few little things that we would add to make it better. For a farmhouse that sleeps 10, we were 3 families and we struggled to dry our washing with only one small airer (and rainy days meant we couldn’t dry washing outside) so adding another two airers would help hugely! The wifi was cut off at 9.30/10pm every evening but one evening it cut off at 8.30pm. It also cut off once or twice in the afternoon randomly. This was quite annoying for our teenage children especially. There was a Hoover in the downstairs bathroom cupboard which we tried to use at the end but found it didn’t work and the live wires going into the plug were dangerously exposed, the Pap test sticker had expired, my husband being the handy man that he is rewired the plug so we could use it. There was only one small bin outside for bin bags which was taken away half way through the week and didn’t come back. Also one small box and bag provided for recycling which we quickly filled so we had to throw away a lot of things that could have been recycled. Also no food bin provided which would have been handy as the kitchen bin started smelling. 10 people make a lot of rubbish. The bed in the room with the en suite would be great if a headboard was added. Overall a lovely stay at a lovely farmhouse in a beautiful location. The area we know well but it is just stunning no matter how many times we come back. Also , the Pub down the road was lovely! Thank you for a great week.

  • "Lovely clean, comfortable farmhouse."

    The beds were fresh and comfortable. Everything you could possibly need was supplied. Scones, jam, cream, milk and tea bags were there and a lovely vase of flowers to welcome us. The owner came to greet us and said to just ask if we had any problems or needed anything. The location and views were brilliant. The children loved seeing the cows and collecting the eggs. The garden was a bonus which we all enjoyed to sit, play and bbq in, even flying a kite. Me and my husband and two daughters with husbands and children all had a lovely holiday. Thank you.

  • "It is a large spacious farmhouse , In our situation it was too much for three people cost wise, well priced within easy reach of the whole of the lizard and surrounding coastal beaches, which were fabulous ,on a downside the ensuite bathroom was inadequate."

    The only part that works properly was the toilet handbasin hot tap took forever to deliver walls, hot water and the shower cubicle, small and claustrophobic, it would’ve been nicer. Has it been a little less rustic and a bit more homely?

    They made us feel very welcome. The farm is right along one of the most beautiful sections of Cornwall coastline - it is situated just perfectly. The house is perfect for large families with a large living kitchen, a playroom, a sitting room and plenty of bedrooms and plenty of space for the kids to play outside. It’s a working farm, and the kids were welcome around milking time to watch and help. We had an amazing time.

  • "Hingey Farmhouse is a lovely place to stay and has ample sleeping and plenty of living space downstairs."

    The local area is very remote and nice and quiet with some incredible views nearby. I would say there are certain things that need updating such as needing cooking/BBQ utensils and bedding was too thick for the time of year with no option as a spare. Also providing hand towels would of been nice. The owners are lovely and friendly and happily shown us around their dairy farm to watch cows being milked. The enclosed garden was also a nice touch to allow young children to be able to play outside. Would highly recommend to others. If they purchased a hot tub it would be icing on the cake.

    Thank you for your feedback. The owner is nearby and is willing to help with any problems. We appreciate you pointing out the BBQ utensils as these needed attention and have now been replaced. - The Owner Relations Team. Property Owner

    The only reason we did not give full marks for comfort is because we have a king size bed at home and always find a double a bit small! That was the only reason. The facilities are very good; our only suggestions to improve would be another tv, possibly in the kitchen/diner or in the playroom. A beautiful beach is only a ten minute walk/2 min car drive away and shopping is excellent in Helston. If you want to see the cows being milked the Farmer and his son were most helpful and happy to explain anything. Egg collecting each morning was always a hit with the 3 younger ones (teenager not so much!) Jane left us a cream tea with masses of clotted cream and beautiful flowers in the hall and kitchen diner. The views on the nearby coastal path are breathtaking. A great week was had by all, thank you.

The property

This character granite stone farmhouse with sea views has been cleverly divided to provide substantial semi detached accommodation for guests and is one mile from Gunwalloe fishing village on the Lizard Peninsula.

Hingey Farmhouse sits close to the coastal footpath, only a mile from picturesque Church Cove.

The interior boasts original features of old beams, exposed stone walls and natural slate floors and makes a lovely holiday homestay for friends and family.

Set over two floors, there is a sitting room with a wood burning stove, country kitchen with dining area, a games room for table tennis and pool, plus five bedrooms and three bathrooms.

There is a lawned garden with garden furniture for alfresco dining and barbecues.

On an 180 acre working dairy farm, you can watch the activity of cows being milked, children will love the novelty of looking for newly laid eggs for breakfast..

The Lizard peninsula is classed as an area of outstanding natural beauty and it is there is much opportunity to get out and enjoy all that the area has to offer.

Protected by the National Trust, a stop at Mullion Cove is a must as is a visit to Roskilly's Farm and ice cream parlour.

Between Gunwalloe and the harbour town of Porthleven sits Loe Pool, the largest freshwater lake in Cornwall.

Situated on the Penrose Estate which is now owned by the National Trust, there are public footpaths all around Loe Pool.

There are many attractions in the area including Poldark Mine, Flambards Theme Park and the National Seal Sanctuary at Gweek.

For those that wish to venture further afield, the coastal towns of St Ives and Penzance are both within easy driving distance.

Hingey Farmhouse makes the ideal base for exploration.
