About the property

Barn in Ludgvan, Penzance, Cornwall, England - Set On A Small Farm Close To Beaches, Penzance And St Ives

Green Pig Farm is a family run farm located on the beautiful and wild peninsula of West Cornwall. We are located midway between the iconic and vibrant St Ives (4 miles) on the north coast and the old market town of Penzance ( 3 miles) in the west - the gateway to the Scilly Isles. The village of Ludgvan is nearby with its ancient church and local public house .

The farm overlooks the majestic St Michael's Mount and Mounts Bay with distant views towards the Lizard peninsula and beyond. We are set in 13 acres of pasture land surrounded by natural Cornish hedges supporting a variety of wildlife and wild flowers. Accommodation is offered in a traditional set of converted barns that are believed to more than 200 years old, built around a small courtyard and garden area. . All the barns sharing the same stunning sea and countryside views. The location offers easy access to the county of Cornwall and is 3 miles from the sandy beaches of Marazion We offer a warm cosy atmosphere with the emphasis on offering a relaxing holiday.

Simply amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at 'the Piggery' for one week in August and had a fantastic time. The two owners Stephen and Neil are great hosts who will do everything to make sure you have a fab time. The cottage has everything you could possibly want and is finished to a very high standard. We especially enjoyed the fresh flowers as well as milk and wine in the fridge when we arrived.

The view from the cottage is like something off a post card, it’s just superb. There isn’t much better than waking up to a beautiful view of St Michaels Mount or even looking out at night when it’s lit up.

The cottage is also perfectly located between Penzance and St Ives, so getting around is very easy, something that made the holiday even better.

We would also HIGHLY recommend the cream teas that are served at the farm, they are amazing!

Thank you very much for a wonderful week!

Absolutely lovely barn conversion, immaculate and couldn't fault it.

Set in peaceful countryside but close to beaches and town with tea room on site that served best cream teas ever!!!!

And view of St Michaels Mount.

The owners are very helpful, there if you need anything and provided lots of information about where to go and what to do.

Had the best holiday here, have already recommended to people and will definately be back.

Amazing Barn, Amazing Views, Amazing Place!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd visit to Green Pig Farm. We absolutely love it here, so peaceful and amazing views!

The barn itself is immaculate and has everything you need for your holiday.

We took Harper, our Sprocker with us and there is a field just beside the Barn where we took her for morning and evening walks.

The Penzance area is great, a short drive into the centre with lots of nice cafes and bars. A great base to visit other gorgeous places along the coast.

Stephen & Neil were great hosts and we look forward to staying again next year.

Highly recommended!!

The accommodation and facilities are excellent - a real home from home experience. Great location to explore and Neil & Stephen always had a useful tip on where to go. The cottage was spotlessly clean and we would definitely recommend.

Superb Holiday

Just got back from a week staying in the Piggery. The Barn was really comfortable, very clean, well maintained and in a brilliant location, also dog friendly. Would definately recommend.

Thanks to Neil & Steve for making us feel at home.

Stayed here last year, fantastic barn conversion- clean, done to a high finish and owners are very friendly. The location is quiet but not too far from the town. Views were stunning, a super find. We were a little sad the tea rooms weren't open when we were there but we'd definately go back for a cornish cream tea.
