About the property

E13946

Originally an ancient farmstead, Coombe Farm now offers four luxury self-catering cottages in North Cornwall. Coombe Farm Cottages are tucked away at the end of a country lane. In this peaceful rural setting you forget the proximity to major trunk roads, which make exploring all of Cornwall so easy.

Everyday there is always lots of fun to be had on the farm, and lots to do!

While retaining the original farm layout, four of the farm buildings have been converted into outstanding holiday cottages with private gardens. There is an outdoor heated swimming pool (May-September weather depending) with spacious sun deck and BBQ facilities.

The communal garden and play area are very popular with children. Guests are also invited to help or watch Farmer Jez on his daily rounds, including feeding the pigs, sheep and horses and collecting the chicken’s eggs.

All cottages have access to the pool, private outdoor area, are fully equipped, free Wi-Fi on the property, on-site parking and fantastic rural views.

Within it’s grassy fields Coombe Farm is home to lambs & sheep that munch away all day, or snooze in the shade by the trees. There are generally 3 saddleback pigs in residence in the back field away from the cottages. They are very friendly and love being fed.

Coombe Farm has amazing facilities. The outdoor pool is heated from end of May to September (weather permitting), and everyone comments how surprisingly warm it is! There’s a spacious sun terrace with built in BBQ, sun loungers and tables and chairs so you can just spend the day swimming and relaxing by the pool.

About Louise Conway

Lou & Jez Conway took over at Coombe Farm in October 2013. We moved with our young children Ella and William and Granny Sally, 2 dogs and 3 cats. We love the area, the beautiful valley we live in, the pasties, the fresh air, the friendly people, the slower pace of life, the big skies, the cream teas, the wildlife, the rugged coastline. We want to work towards a small holding lifestyle with a few animals and a large vegetable patch. The good life!

Louise Conway purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Louise Conway chose Trewen

We love Coombe Farm as it is totally remote and secluded, quiet and peaceful. It is also 5 mins from major trunk roads & the market town of Launceston. It is an ideal base to explore North Cornwall, the moors, the coast, the historic villages.

What makes this cottage unique

Staying at Coombe Farm you will have the farm experience of living with and feeding the animals, including chickens, pigs, sheep and goats.

The swimming pool is heated in the main season (end May - Sept).

Barn on a farm in a stunning rural location,

  • 5 of 5

Welcomed to property with tea and homemade cake and flowers all on the table waiting for us! Heated pool which we swam in daily, we joined farmer Jez and fed the sheep, goats,pigs and hens every morning. Abe our labradore loved chasing his tennis ball up in the fields. We went rock pooling on black rock beach, borrowed nets from farm! Enjoyed s BBQ by the pool! Can't wait to get back again!

Amazing week in Cornwall

Had such a great time, Jeremy and Lou were simply great! Was a really good location for exploring the beaches. The cottage has beautiful surrounds with lots of animals which can be hand fed. Would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing getaway. Great for families!

Combines country charm with stylish accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Morvoren Cottage is very well designed and well appointed - comfortable rooms, with TV in lounge and bedroom, dishwasher much appreciated by me, nice modern shower and bathroom, and high vaulted ceiling giving excellent light. The woodburning stove gave it a cosy feel in the evening.

Outside, the pool looked inviting, although out of season when I was there, the whole area of cottages and farmhouse is well laid out, and the views from the back of Morvoren, to the farm animals and beyond, are Cornish countryside at its best. Walks on Bodmin Moor and the Coastal Path added to the "let's get away from it all" feel of the holiday.

Coombe Farm is a combination of traditional Cornwall with up-to-date facilities in the cottages - the best of both worlds. Highly recommended.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

A belated massive thumbs up for Coombe Farm! Such a wonderful winter break. Siblyback Cottage exceeded expectations both in its peaceful location and its high quality interior.

As an older guest I enjoyed plenty of delightful winter walks and birdwatching on the Cornish Coastal path nearby and the beautiful quiet beaches. In contrast, the Christmas lights at Padstow were stunning and there was a very lively atmosphere both there and at the Eden Project with all its festive activities.

Hosts Jez and Lou were unfailingly helpful and friendly, full of ideas, and it was a joy watching the animals being so well looked after.

Now, I can't wait to try a summer break at Coombe Farm when the heated pool, BBQ and beautiful gardens will make it even more perfect - if that's possible!
