Morvoren Cottage - Sleeps 4 (1 Bedroom)
This is a recent conversion of a farm building, now carefully designed for a fabulous and relaxing break away from it all.
The living space is open plan, with sitting, kitchen and dining areas together. It’s spacious, light and airy. The sofa is a double sofabed. French doors lead out to a private patio area with BBQ facilities and fenced grassy garden and views out across the beautiful valley and swimming pool. The cottage is set back from the other cottages, just up the drive from the courtyard for extra privacy.
The kitchen is fully fitted with new appliances including a dishwasher and breakfast bar. There is a wood burning stove in the living room for those cosy nights in, and a large flat screen TV and DVD player. There is gas central and under floor heating throughout. The relaxing double bedroom with it’s own TV and black out lined curtains, has space for a travel cot. The modern bathroom, accessed through the hall or bedroom, has an L-shaped bath with drench-head shower over.
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 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 the Owner
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 North Cornwall
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.

Lovely, quiet and totally relaxing.
Excellent cosy cottage that was really fresh and clean, with great facilities. We loved being surrounded by nature, and the farm animals. Will definitely be coming back and would highly recommend to anyone. The only thing we could fault was no wifi signal, as we were slightly out of range, but it was no problem, as it also nice to be cut off from that too. Thank you Lou & Jez, all the best in the years to come.
