About the property

5 Star Gold Award from Quality in Tourism, VisitCornwall and VisitEngland - Penventinue Manor Farm offers some of the best luxury self-catering cottages on the south coast of Cornwall - located in Fowey (pronounced Foy, as in toy) within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

All four cottages have been furnished to a very high, having been awarded 5 Star Gold, and are fully equipped with a modern yet rustic feel with squashy sofas and beds that will hug you until you fall asleep.

Wild Thyme Barn and Manor Farmhouse have their own private gardens & terraces with Pond View Cottage and Blackberry Cottage boasting private terraces.

All have barbecues and top of the range garden furniture.

DOG FRIENDLY COTTAGES:-

Pond view Cottage comes with its own herb garden and is dog friendly for 2 dogs.

Wild Thyme Barn sleeps 2 and can have 1 dog.

Manor Farmhouse sleeps 7 and can have 1 dog.

There is a larger herb patch in the main square and seasonal vegetables are available from our veggie patch.

Penventinue Manor Farm is a truly tranquil setting, with five acres of lovingly tendered lawns and gardens; Wildlife roams and Wildflowers grow in abundance, giving you your very own private pocket of Cornwall. With refreshing countryside strolls and breathtaking cliff path walks on our doorstep and being conveniently situated on the South Coast of Cornwall we are within easy reach of many popular attractions and places to visit.

Whatever type of holiday or break you seek Penventinue Manor Farm is the perfect destination and offers excellent accommodation for family holidays, groups of friends or romantic weekends. Come and make yourself at home in an idyllic and utterly unique converted barn where freedom and relaxing space is on tap.

Fowey is a delightfully picturesque and unspoilt small town and port that nestles in a valley on the west bank of the River Fowey.

This area is ideal for those who wish to visit all parts of Cornwall while staying in a quiet and relaxing environment.

It offers particularly good walking country and is home to many of the country’s best gardens. Beautiful unspoilt countryside, criss-crossed with delightful walks and steeped in history, the farm at Penventinue (pronounced ‘Penn-ertinny’), was recorded in the Doomsday book.

Within easy walking distance of the town yet set in distinctly open countryside it’s truly the best of both town and country.

If you have a boat and would like to bring it, it can be easily launched from nearby Caffa Mill and we have trailer storage space (please bear in mind that the farm is at the end of a country lane and larger boats/trailers may struggle to navigate the winding turns).

The town of Fowey is unique with its compact Fore Street packed with individual shops, including excellent local Butchers, deli and fish mongers, old fashioned pubs, coffee shops and a selection of superb restaurants. Local seafood and farm produce are always cooked to best effect in convivial surroundings whether you want a young, hip joint or a more relaxed, classical vibe.

About Louise Roberts

Louise manage's the business for the owners and lives locally so you can tap into her local knowledge. She works in the office at the farm some days and is contactable on her mobile at any time.

Louise Roberts purchased this farmhouse in 2010

Why Louise Roberts chose Newquay & St Austell area

The property was purchased simply because it is located in one of the most beautiful, relaxing areas of the UK - Fowey on the south coast of Cornwall. The cottages are nestled in stunning countryside within Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and with sea views. The locals are incredibly friendly and cannot do enough for visitors to Cornwall - that's how they made us feel every time we holidayed to Cornwall which is what helped with our decision to move here. The cottages are less than a mile from the unique fishing town of Fowey, with easy access to the many famous and award winning attractions and other popular areas of Cornwall. We have 5 acres of gardens too - giving the best of all worlds.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Louise is on call for guests any time of the day and lives locally which helps provide guests with round the clock assistance, peace of mind, advice and recommendations.

She has extensive knowledge of Cornwall and can organise anything that you need or wish for, from a private Chef to tickets for local attractions, a local produce hamper for a special occasion or a birthday cake.

Having gardens and parking and being located on a quiet private road makes for a very convenient and happy holiday, yet we are just a stones throw from Fowey and other main towns and areas of Cornwall.

Fantastic house with beautiful gardens

  • 4 of 5

Six of us stayed in the Manor farmhouse, which was furnished to a high spec and had lots of room for us to spread out. The only issue was the open fire which blew back and left not only the downstairs smokey but also us and our clothes. We needed a fire as it was still cold in the evening. It would have been so much better with a log burner. Most of the heat from the fire went up the chimney but the smoke filled the room! Apart from that and the very dodgy wifi connection and non exsistent phone signal ( also no landline which was a bit worrying as nobody could contact us at all in an emergency ) we loved the accomodation and location. Walking to the village was more of a hike and took more than 20 mins. Walking back was an uphill marathon. It's definitely a place we will return to.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much indeed for your Review and kind words. Sorry about the fire situation. When it's cold its best holding a hairdryer up the chimney for a couple of minutes to warm the air inside which prevents a back draft of smoke as you experienced. I'll pop that handy tip in the cottage information for other guests. Vodaphone unfortunately doesn't work at the cottages given the thick granite walls and location - other networks seem to be OK, O2 especially. Most self catering properties do not have landlines but the Wifi is usually OK and other guests suffering with lack of phone signal have made free calls over the Wifi OK. The Wifi weakens when there are several people connected to it, downloading large files or watching films etc - as with anywhere. The farm accommodates 21 people at peak holiday times and most people these days have iphones and ipads all running at the same time. My mobile is advertised on the website and 3rd party sites too, so if anyone needs to contact one of our guests and cant reach them for whatever reason, I would hope they would think to call me. It takes approximately 25 minutes to walk into Fowey - this timescale I have taken from previous guests over the years and I have walked it too. Some people take longer, some only 15 minutes. It's only 0.8 miles into Fowey. It is a slight incline coming back, it's not hilly at all and takes an average of 35 minutes to walk back.

Fantastic property presented beautifully

  • 5 of 5

Manor farmhouse is a truly fantastic place to stay and is presently to the highest standard through out. Every thing has been thought off to ensure that your stay is relaxing and enjoyable, being a 20 minute walk to Fowey town centre but set within its own grounds away from noise of the seaguls, it is a peaceful and beautiful place to sit and enjoy the surroundings.
