Sleeps 6 -10 people. Superbly situated on the South Cornish Coast, this traditional detached charming farm house and garden, with 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and 3rd WC , gives you a comfortable and well placed location for your Cornish holiday. It offers flexible accommodation for families or friends ( price reductions also available for groups of 6 or less, using 3 bedrooms ). You can enjoy a relaxing seaside rest, (less than 0.5 mile to a safe swimming beach) and just spend time chilling out at the Old Farm House enjoying the view. Or you can visit the many wonderful attractions in Mid Cornwall including the World famous gardens of the Eden Project and Heligan (both within 10 mins drive). On the door step is Porthpean 'open to all' golf course it offers reduced green fees to guests of the Old Farm House. The charming World Heritage site of Charlestown Harbour with its historic tall Ships and traditional pubs and restaurants is only two coves away along the coastal footpath, so there really is something for everybody.

The Old Farm House is a family house dating from the late eighteenth century. It has been sensitively modernised and restored, with many original features and materials it now offers a blend of tradition, comfort and style, and includes the modern essentials of life like WiFi, central heating and tumble drier.

The large oak floored living/ dining room and conservatory offers a spectacular view of St. Austell Bay and makes this house superb for family meals and celebrations. A door from here onto the generous terrace with Bar B Q and garden make for easy summer living and outdoor dining, also enjoying the same marvelous view.

With a large cosy lounge with (40 inch TV) and 2nd TV room/den there is plenty of space for everyone in your group to find somewhere to relax. Every bedroom enjoys a south facing view over the garden or the coast so no one will feel they have second best. The mature and enclosed garden allows you to relax with young children, whilst taking in the sea air and fantastic view. WiFi included.

The Old Farm House has a house manager who will be happy to answer any questions before or after you have made a booking, as we want to make you holiday as enjoyable as we can.

"Eden with a view! Definitely coming back."

We had the most fabulous holiday here. The views were stunning and the property itself was well cared for and extremely well appointed; altogether very comfortable. We were a large group and the communal area was perfect for meals and socialising generally. Nights were really peaceful and I particularly enjoyed the sounds of the sea. The award winning beach was a five minute walk away and was perfect for the kids; the water was a bit chilly in April though! Good walking along the coast path to the pub and tall ships in Charlestown. A difficult holiday to criticise; just be careful who you go with.

"Fabulous house, view stunning and we all felt terribly sad we had to leave"

Great family house, mother loved the garden and it was safe for my brothers children to tot about in. You can also get the push chair down to the beech. Golf course is a ten minute walk away and we managed time to get a few rounds in. Large supermarket is a 10 min car journey, which is wonderful....... when on holiday.
The large open kitchen dining area is perfect for families and the view is cinematic across the bay. Even adolescents where impressed.
Tips to do...Eden project , expensive but really worth it . And from the beach you can do the coastal path to Charlestown where there are foodie pubs, do take a torch if staying late. Guidelines..... make the parlour women only.
