As you feast on your first cream tea and gaze over the verdant orchards, you know you’ve found the perfect retreat. Tranquillity, lovely views and the glorious Cornish coastline on the horizon. Holidays don’t come much better.

Charming Cornwall

This is surely Cornish countryside at its best: miles of verdant farmland and the greenest orchards, all stretching below your terrace. And just on the horizon, the idyllic Praa Sands promise days of fun in the sun.

The Old Dairy delivers on all of these, although you may not get to the beach much once the children in your party discover the farm. Here, it’s all about collecting eggs, feeding the pigs and exploring the fields in search of the playhouse fit for any child’s dream.

Back at your retreat, the stylish conversion rises lofty in glass and wood. Downstairs, you walk into a light and airy hall before climbing the stairs to your open plan living area. Orchard views greet you at every window – step outside onto the terrace for the very best vistas. This will be one of your favourite spots and probably where you’ll enjoy your complimentary cream tea that Cornwall does so very, very well.

Back inside, plump black leather sofas promise utter relaxation and should the Cornish evening come chilly, you’ll be warmed by the cosy wood stove and underfloor heating. The stylish kitchenette stands proud in cream, black and chrome and has everything you need to create a little something using those eggs or apples. Al fresco dining will be popular – on your terrace or back on ground level at the handily placed picnic table, just yards from the orchard and all that farm to be explored.

And then when you do manage to tear the kids away from the delights of the farm, Praa Sands await. Over a mile of golden sands to enjoy with buckets, spades and crab lines plus the waves to ride or just watch as they roll in and out of the bay.   

Bedrooms and bathrooms

Both bedrooms are on the ground floor, one has a king size bed and en suite shower while the other has two singles (or one king size - just let us know your preference). There’s also a family bathroom with separate bath and shower.


Perfect for a small family. We loved it.

Mrs Ruth J,

We had a great week at the Old Dairy despite a mixed weather week. Family of 4 with 2 kids (9 & 7). They loved the open space of the surrounding gardens, the swings and feeding the chickens and Truffles the pig. The Old Dairy was great - has everything you need and like us a great washer/dryer if the weather does turn against you. The location is a peaceful little spot and good location for touring Cornwall. We loved the local harbour Porthleven, which had a great range of restaurants. Kate and Kevin were lovely and passed on lots of tips for places to go the rest of the week. Lovely thought to have cream tea waiting and lollies for the kids too. We would thoroughly recommend staying and wish Kate & Kevin well.

The Newell Family,

We had a fantastic week at the Old Dairy and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property was lovely with all the amenities needed to make our stay hassle free and very comfortable. The children really enjoyed the large field and play areas, plus visiting the chickens, ducks and pig. We also saw Pheasants and Rabbits on most days. We were situated within 20 minutes reach of many of attractive spots to visit such as, Porthleven, St Ives – take the coastal train from Lelant to see the views and visit the beach or Tate gallery, the jubilee pool at Penzance plus further afield to The Eden project. Kevin and Kate were very friendly and gave good advice if we had any questions. Thank you very much.
