The Neighbourhood

We are a farm in a rural area on a cliff top and we are on the doorstep of two amazing family friendly beaches - Chapel Porth and Porthtowan (Blue Flag winner) are within a 10 minute drive. Mount Hawke's indoor skatepark is on our doorstep too. This location is great for surfing or body-boarding.. It is a brilliant place for all outdoor activities in general, with safe access for children. Tennis courts, lawn bowls, fishing , boating, golf and putting all found in nearby towns like Perranporth. There's a Zoo in Newquay and the Flambards attractions are in Helston. The Cornish Coastal Path is across the road less than a minute on foot. Our Cottages are a great base for walking holidays. If you like an after beach beer or meal then no taxis or cars required. Just walk across the field to the pub.

For those who enjoy a home 'cook out' why not stay home and cook a meal with fresh produce from the farm shop that's on site. We sell fresh pork and eggs. For those who love seafood there's a wonderful nearby Fish monger within walking distance. Why not cook the 'catch of the day'.
