Step Inside

Follow the Cornish country lanes, through the farmland and arrive to the working farm of Portherras, a characterful picture perfect scene of stone farm buildings, original granite walls and rolling valley leading down to the sea. Portherras Farm Cottage is set over two levels with a reverse layout. Arrive into the ground floor hallway where the four comfortable bedrooms have each been lovingly styled in the finest linens in fresh whites, cools blues, soft yellows and deep reds. A large family bathroom ensures a luxury pamper is enjoyed after a day in the Cornish elements. A central staircase leads up to the light and sunny social spaces where family life comes together to rest, relax and reconnect. The spacious living room is the hub to the house as guests sink into sofas, relax with a good book or favourite film and gaze upon the far reaching sea views. Lead through to the farmhouse style kitchen offering ample space for all to get involved with family feast preparation and where dining becomes a family affair once more at the large wooden table. Located just off the dining space is a sunny balcony with dining table and chairs, what better place to enjoy a hearty breakfast. A convenient cloakroom completes the first floor. 

From your Holiday Door

Step outside your door and into garden luxury as the verdant green lawn rolls away towards the valley and beautiful pockets of garden seating ensure a quiet corner away from the hubbub of the house. For cooler evenings the conservatory offers a tempting option or dress the terrace table to impress for celebrations. Adding a little luxury for garden life, dip into the hot tub and loose yourself in the distraction of the landscape with only your friendly neighbourhood cows to disturb. The nearest beach is accessed on foot along the coastal path down through the valley to Portherras Cove, a quiet and picture perfect hidden cove with azure blue waters and white sand. Sennen offers a nearby alternative with cool cafe and a popular spot for local surfers. The South West Coast Path is 0.3 miles away taking you on a day's walk to St Ives or half a day to Land's End and Sennen Cove. Out and about in West Cornwall is simply magical, grab your camera and discover your Cornish exposure! Nearby Gurnards Head is an award-winning gastro pub, 10 mins drive along the coastal road named the Most Scenic Coastal Route In The UK! or follow the coast road North to the coastal town and harbour of St Ives in 25 minutes. Located on a UNESCO mining heritage site, Geevor Tin Mine cafe serves fresh hand made pasties, scones and Victoria sponge cake to die for, the whole site overlooks the Atlantic. The North Inn is 3 mins away in the centre of Pendeen serving traditional food and is known for their special Indian cuisine as the owner's son spent time cooking in India. There is also a local shop selling local produce with the nicest eggs on the peninsula! Penzance is a 12 min drive and well worth a visit especially the newly revamped Jubilee Pool on the promenade.

Michael Golding

If you are looking for a little luxury in remote, rural, rugged west Cornwall, then this is perfect. Daughter loved seeing the calves at the farm everyday. Sitting in the hot tub looking at those sea views is magical. Nearby Portheras Cove is stunning and a hidden gem.
