Holiday Cottages in Truro, Cornwall - Peaceful Farm Location, 2 miles from main A30
A substantial stone barn complex set around a courtyard with the stables opposite still in use. The barns have been beautifully and tastefully converted into self catering cottages. An acre of communal lawns, parking space and a children’s play-area means plenty of room for relaxation, and walks can be enjoyed within the Owners’ 500 acre dairy farm, where milking time can sometimes be viewed by prior arrangement. Although rural Pengelly Farm Cottages have easy access to roads, so sandy beaches and windswept dunes at Perranporth are a short drive away; the mellow south coast, the surfing beaches of the north coast, and the Cathedral City of Truro are also within reach by car. The Eden Project is also a short 20 min drive, indeed the close proximity to the A30, means that the whole of the County is easily accessible.

About the Owner
Pengelly Farm has been in the family for four generations. My wife and I have run the farm as a Dairy farm for the past 20 years. We have four children aged from 14yrs to 22yrs, who are are all girls.
The courtyard that the cottages are set in used to be the milking parlour, and cattle sheds. As our dairy herd expanded we needed to build a bigger parlour, which rendered the courtyard redundant, an ideal situation for conversion.
The dairy side of the farm was sold in July 2011, now being a cereal and suckler herd farm.
There are also several horses on the farm, with mares foaling in the spring; for those keen horse riders there are several riding centres nearby.
