Stop. Look. Listen. What’s that you hear? Countryside. Nature. All the sights, sounds and smells of rural North Cornwall. Gaze at it all from tall windows throughout or get outdoors and explore all for yourself.

Rural enrapture

Space and serenity go hand in hand at Farmlands. A haven that location wise combines rural retreat wit quick coastal access. An exquisite home away from home where guests can find the space and privacy their holiday downtime should offer with the warm and inviting living areas for fabulous family time.

Mostly on one level, the warm oak floors welcome and wend their way through all the rooms. The vast open plan living area is the hub of this homely stand alone house. You can imagine the hubbub of life in the kitchen as a weekend brunch is rustled up or someone calls gin o’clock. If you’re dining in, there dining area next to the patio doors proffers views aplenty as the sunsets on a summer’s evening or the stars shine on a clear winter’s night. A few steps down to the semi-sunken sitting area and you’ll happily sink into the sofa to soak up yet more views or huddle around the hung wood burner against the natural, local stone wall. Every opportunity to let light in and views out has been created here in picture windows and access outside.

At the end of the lane is a public footpath that’ll guide you almost all the way to Porthcothan Bay - a 10 minute and almost entirely traffic-free wander. This sand dune backed back beach promises entertainment in hours of sand play, whether you’re a sandcastle, sand sculpture or giant hole digging fan. Walkers adore this corner of North Cornwall with its access to the South West Coast Path and National Trust headland. Padstow and the legendary Bedruthan Steps are not far.

Bedrooms and bathrooms

On the ground floor, three bedrooms are equally spacious and comfortable as the rest of the house. Two of the bedrooms enjoy a super king size bed and en suite shower room with drench showers that you’ll linger a little longer under of a morning. Bedroom three welcomes guests with a lovely comfortable twin and the family bathroom with bath and separate shower is all yours too.


Porthcothan Bay is another of those locations which is just waiting to be discovered and explored. Within easy reach of Padstow and St Merryn, and a short drive up the coast road from Newquay and Mawgan Porth, the sheltered, sandy bay at Porthcothan is another of the many family-friendly beaches that can be enjoyed along this part of the coastline. It is also dog-friendly all year round, and boasts picturesque cliff walks and outstanding scenery. The area around Porthcothan is also home to a wide variety of sea birds, and the cliffs are often grazed by ponies and sheep, which helps with conservation of local plant life. The nearby village of St Merryn and the town of Padstow offer an excellent choice of pubs and restaurants, in addition to the local pub, the Tredrea Inn, which hosts live bands and also has a beer garden where you can sip your drink while admiring the superb views over the bay. Porthcothan Bay is also close to the village of St Eval, where anyone, whatever your age, can have loads of fun on the Karting Circuit, and when you're done, you can visit nearby Kernow Chocolate where you will find a wide range of yummy chocolate treats!
