"Character cottages in a countryside setting, ideal for an activity-filled family holiday. . "
In glorious Cornish countryside on the edge of the pretty village of Tresmeer, just 6 miles from Launceston, the ancient capital of Cornwall, and 10 miles from the stunning North Cornish Coast, Higher Churchtown Farm offers the ideal holiday location for friends and family to escape and unwind or as a wedding venue as the owners have been granted a licence to conduct weddings on site.
Set beside the historic village church and with glorious views reaching to Dartmoor, these four delightful converted barns are very spacious and beautifully presented with oak furniture, underfloor heating on the ground floors and heated towel rails in most of the bathrooms. They retain much of their original charm with vaulted ceilings, exposed stone walls and beams. Kettle’s On is a detached single-storey barn with its own rear garden; each of the others has its own small patio and all enjoy shared use of a large garden area with18ft circular above-ground swimming pool and an additional ½-acre games field which provides a great place for children to play. For amusement indoors, a selection of reading material is also provided, together with games, puzzles, DVDs and a 42in television. The largest of the barns also has its own games room with pool table, darts and board games. A local artist displays her work in the barns of scenes around Cornwall, which can be purchased and taken home as a memento. Lambing also takes place on the farm during the first few months of the year up to the beginning of April.
Whether surfing, walking the coastal path, playing golf, fishing or simply relaxing this stunning location has something for everyone. Riding, cycling and walking trails are in abundance including a lovely riverside walk from the barns across the owners’ farmland. This really is a superb holiday choice for friends, families or when booked as a whole for a celebration gathering. Launceston has a good selection of local shops, town amenities, and restaurants.
Family attractions include Trethorne Leisure Park and Golf Club, Harlequins Bude, Crealy Adventure Park, Newquay Zoo and the Blue Reef Aquarium. Ideally situated to visit the North Cornwall coastal resorts of Tintagel, Boscastle, Port Isaac and Padstow. For a great day out, enjoy the famous Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 4 miles.
The Place 2 B, What a Beauty, Proper Job and Kettle’s On can be booked together to accommodate up to 32 guests.
A wonderful holiday, everything we could want for the family. The children didn’t want to leave
What a beauty - what a stunner. Perfect peaceful location. Away from the hussle and bussle but only a quick car journey away from Tintagel Boscastle and Bude to name a few. Directions provided by Yvonne were spot on. The cottage was out of this world. Well equipped with everything we needed including dishwasher tablets, cream tea and fresh flowers. Literally everything had been thought of down to books, dvds, games and toys. The dolls house was a huge hit with our little one. Yvonne and Farmer Graham were very welcoming and friendly. We couldn’t have asked for more. We fed the ducks, tractor ride and Farmer Graham answered our many questions. Nothing was too much trouble. We quickly made friends with the very friendly Murphy and Pumpkin the farm dogs. Would highly recommend to anyone and hope to return soon
We found our cottage easily, the directions given were very easy to follow. The cottage was very well equipped, and daily needs had been thought of, even washing tablets for the washing machine! Yvonne & Graham were lovely hosts, very welcoming, and our little ones loved helping to feed the animals and watching the sheep sheering! We definitely recommend What A Beauty *****
