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.

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 the Owner
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 cottage 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 cottage 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.
Generally our changeover day is a Saturday with a minimum 7 night stay during peak times (May to Sept) & school holidays but short breaks with any arrival day is possible.
Arrival is after 4pm and departure before 10am
Deposits of one third are required to confirm your holiday and/or the full/final balance payable 8 weeks prior to arrival.
Credit & Debit card details taken with no credit card charges.
BACS payments also available
No Smoking throughout
Notes on prices:
Everything is included in the price of the cottage plus a Welcome Hamper containing convenience items:-
Oven glove, tea-towel, dish sponge and Jcloth, Ecover washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, all purpose cleaner, toilet cleaner, toilet roll and kitchen roll, and when staying 5 or more nights – 1 pint milk, 1 bottle of wine and six free-range eggs from our happy chickens (when laying!)
Seasonal vegetables & herbs from our veggie patch

Fantastic find in Fowey
If you like quality in your fixtures and fittings , and a lovely location then this is the place for you . We have been visiting Fowey for many years but this is by far the best place we have stayed in , it was exactly as described which is not always the case . The location is rural yet within a few minutes by car you can be parked in Fowey, or if you fancy a walk you can get there in 20 - 30 minutes , a little bit longer returning as it's a gentle uphill ascent . Louise who is in charge of the property is lovely to deal with and Alex and Julie who live on site will give you lots of help regarding places to eat , visit etc , they have a wealth of knowledge to pass on . Wild Thyme Barn really is a lovely place to stay for 2 people and if there are more of you the other properties look equally beautiful , we look forward to returning there in the near future .
