About Zoe Nelson

We are a small family run business offering quality 4 star accommodation at affordable prices. Manor Farmhouse Cottage is attached to our farmhouse and is lovingly maintained by ourselves with great pride and enjoyment. In fact, it has been completely redecorated and refurnished for 2017 season! Our names are Murray & Zoe Nelson and we have two children Holly & Aidan. We also share our lives with numerous free range chickens that provide us with the most delicious eggs! Max & Charlie are our very friendly (but contained!) sprockers and we recently welcomed Elsa & Pebble, Holly's dwarf hamsters. We love welcoming our guests to Manor Farmhouse Cottage where you are sure to have a fantastic and well rested holiday.

Zoe Nelson purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Zoe Nelson chose Gwennap

As soon as we saw Manor Farmhouse we knew this was the perfect home to bring up our family, it took our breath away and we feel very lucky. It's rural but central location makes it an ideal hide-away but easily accessible for exploring all that Cornwall has to offer. Located up an unmade lane amidst a hamlet of five other properties it is extremely quiet and the distinct lack of traffic makes very peaceful sleeping (except for the owls!). The local area is beautiful and perfect for cycling, walking and appreciating the Cornish landscape. Our local beach is only five minutes away so we feel we get the best of both worlds, country life as well as sea life!

What makes this cottage unique

Manor Farmhouse Cottage is located centrally in Cornwall which makes it a brilliant base to explore all of Cornwall, you will want to return as many do! The local villages of Chacewater & St Day offer brilliant local amenities and there are some fantastic local pubs nearby. The fish 'n' chip shops are becoming very famous in our visitors book too! Our location is in the middle of the coast-to-coast cycle path, the ancient mineral tramway that takes you from Portreath to Deveron passing old tin mines that are a feature of Cornwall's landscape. Therefore we offer mountain bikes and child’s trailer van to enable you to explore them, all free of charge. There are no hidden charges as we want you to relax and have a stress free time, which we guarantee we shall do everything we can to ensure.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"A lovely week where the weather took a spectacular turn for the better! Great location for driving in any direction and a quiet, comfortable place to drive home to. Had a great week and plenty of photos to prove it. Thanks!"

Suzanne & Dan 19-26 May 2012



"An extremely enjoyable Cornish cottage with everything I needed. I shall return. Thank you Zoe & Murray. The wine and cupcakes were a lovely touch"

Rory, Yeovil



"It was a shame we didn't get to see more of you. We had a brilliant holiday and think you are so lucky to have it all the time. I shall miss the view from the front door, being able to watch the sunrise whilst in bed and of course the lovely bike rides. We shall be back!"

Beautifully presented cottage

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have been happier with the cottage- very clean and comfortable and hosts thought of everything- even toys for baby. Was great to have use of bikes, also good selection of DVDs and local info. Attention to detail was much appreciated! Beautifully presented and lots of thoughtful extras added a touch of luxury which gave it a hotel feel. Was lovely finding cream teas, eggs and wine on arrival- it was perfect! Also good value. Highly recommended.

Very nice cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very nice decorated and very well equipped. We spend some restful days there.

We were delighted with the nice welcoming cupcakes, eggs and wine.

We met Zoe on our third day, she is a very friendly person. Since she was not at home on our arrival she made sure that her neighbour was arround.

It was easy to explore the south of cornwall from there - most places < 1 hour driving.

We would recommend staying there!

Kind regards,

Melina and Robin

Rural Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Arrived rather late and to a very warm welcome from owner. Cream tea complete with home produce which was a great extra touch.

House attached to owners. Not a problem. They made sure I had everything, then let me get on with my holiday undisturbed.

House just the right size. Good level of equipment in kitchen, which was important as I like cooking, and tv/settees for chilling out. Bed big and comfy.

Location great for me. Quiet/rural but easy to get to so many fantastic places including mile after mile of fab coastal path. Also next to a coast to coast cycle (or walking) path.

No complaints and I will definitely be back!
