The Experience

A very special place to stay, where the emphasis has been on cherishing its unique character and making any changes as sustainably as possible. There’s plenty of space in the sitting room to unfurl on three sofas, with loads of books, a piano and a very pretty fireplace (coal and logs provided) so even if the weather is foul you’ll feel happy hunkering down in here. Deep windowsills face south overlooking the Lanherne valley, there’s a desk for writing and plenty of original art to inspire.

The kitchen has a hatch to the dining room and a handy walk-in larder. The fridge and freezer are out the back in a covered corridor where you’ll also find an outdoor shower for sandy wetsuits, a drying line and another loo. The garden, with wooden deck, has long views over the valley and to the sea. This is a good spot for a barbecue as the stars come out.

Join the coastal path in either direction for grassy headlands and hidden coves.

A great house for gathering the clan and enjoying a proper English seaside holiday - once here you can walk to the beach, restaurants, shop and pubs.

Nicola, Sawday's inspector

We loved our stay. The house is beautifully positioned for beach and walks and easy drives to everything needed. It's a place to switch off, as doesn't have all the "mod cons" that some places may have, but if you love a wood fire and a quiet and comfortable and rustic place to stay in a great spot this is highly recommended.

Peter, London

Everything about this place is magical. The farmhouse is beautiful and full of delightful detail. Set in the best location a few minutes walk from the majestic beach of Mawgan Porth. As a family we are never happier than when we come here.

Deborah, London

Lovely house in a perfect location at the end of a lane just 500 yards from Mawgan Porth Beach. The sitting room is cosy and there's plenty of space, including a small walled garden facing south. Of course it's not The Four Seasons but it's charming and peaceful and real.

The neighbourhood

You can stock up in Mawgan Porth at a small grocery shop and there's a pub, the Merrymoor Inn. For eating out there's Catch Seafood or the Blue Fish bar for excellent fish and chips. Walk to St Mawgan through fields and across rivers to find a 13th-century church with a delightful carved pulpit. St Eval has a good farm shop and Carnewas Tea Room probably the best cream tea ever, so go early


Lucy Sanders

Porth Farmhouse has been in Lucy's family since her grandparents moved here in the 1920s. Her grandfather, an architect, made some changes to the layout and widened the windows. Her mother was born here and her sister, brother and nephew live on the same lane. It's a much loved family heirloom which they hope you will enjoy staying in.
