“Fantastic place to stay, would definitely recommend!”
Reviewed December 14, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We arrived on a rainy Friday evening in near darkness. It was a little tricky to find (we're not local!) but once we arrived we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. In the kitchen waiting for us were freshly baked scones, home-made jam and clotted cream. Patrick, the owner, popped over to say hello and check that we have everything that we needed but other than that gave us our privacy. The house is light and airy but cosy at the same time. All the rooms were clean and tidy, the kitchen was a great size with a good-sized family table. Would definitely recommend.

“A comfortable and welcoming house and a helpful owner, we enjoyed our stay”
Reviewed September 15, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The house has a very pleasant and welcoming feel about it. It was clean, recently decorated and as described and expected from the photos. The house is on a quiet country lane, but access to larger roads is easy. We used the house as a base for walking the coast path, surfing and visits to National Trust properties. There is also a large informal garden with outdoor games setup which would be great if you were spending more time at the house with younger children. The owner was very friendly and helpful including with advice on shops, beaches and attractions.

“We could not have stayed anywhere better!”
Reviewed August 2, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I would recommend the Old Farmhouse to anyone. I stayed there with my family which includes 2 boys age 8 and 3. It was the 2nd time I have stayed and this surpassed my previous visit (something I did not think possible). A fabulous farmhouse, full of everything we could have asked for and the owners were very friendly. There were lots of toys for the children and a huge garden where we could allow them to play safely without supervision. An ideal location too and lots of information provided about places to visit. I was particularly impressed by the attention to detail and the scones on arrival were much appreciated after a long journey.

“A beautiful spacious holiday home perfect for all”
Reviewed May 30, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We have just returned from a weeks stay in the lovely Old Farmhouse, wow it was absolutely perfect. The owners are so welcoming, nothing is too much trouble and the homemade scones waiting on our arrival were a lovely touch.

Our party was made up of two family''s sharing, which included four children with ages ranging from 4 to 8 and this property was perfect in every way, from the two master bedrooms with ensuite's and the huge tv and sky for the adults, to the large garden/field for the children to play safely. I would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to explore this beautiful area.

“Fantastic spacious family friendly place to stay”
Reviewed May 17, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Highly recommend this cottage. Lovely owners couldn't be friendlier! Lots to do and lovely decorated farmhouse. Very well equipped for families. Lots of space and generous size bedrooms. The gardens were large and my son loved running around and playing football. Good parking.
Overall it was just simply lovely!

This is an immaculate farmhouse, beautifully renovated with loads of space and warm comfortable rooms. The owner is wonderfully friendly, approachable and helpful without being intrusive, leaving you to enjoy the property. Very dog friendly--my spaniel loved it too!!
The place is situated in a lovely quiet valley and you are greeted by lovely birdsong in the mornings although it is only a 5 minute drive into Helston . We had a great time exploring the amazing Lizard peninsula and the far west beaches of Sennen and Porthcurnow. Fantastic pubs and restaurants nearby--particularly Porthleven. Would be happy to live there permanently!!
