"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!"

"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!"

The cottage is in a great location for exploring Cornwall. The owners were welcoming and it was a treat to arrive to both coffee and tea supplies and cakes! We would thoroughly recommend staying here.

Had the best stay ever, wish we could have stayed longer. Zoe and Murray are the perfect hosts, fantastic customer service, photos were accurate, absolutely clean and well looked after, and they know their history of the area. We were on a family history trip and couldnt believe how lucky we were to stay right in the middle of where our families lived in the 1500-1890 or so. They have a top notch property and would recommend to anyone. Will return and book longer if we ever get back to Cornwall. Thank you Zoe,Murray and familyv for the perfect stay.

From the Owner

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!

From the Owner

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.
