About the property

Scarrabine Farmhouse Annex Port Isaac, Cornwall, Port Isaac - Peaceful Location 10 Minutes Walk To Port Quin Harbour 30 Mins Walk To Port Isaac Harbour

Scarrabine Farm and Farmhouse has been in our family for over 140 years. The annexe which was converted from the old pigs house on the West facing side of the Farm house looks directly out at Port Quin bay. There is a outside seating area that is a great sun trap enjoying all day sunshine. There is a short 10 min walk from the property down to Port Quin harbour or a longer 40 min walk on the footpath to Port Isaac. The annexe is designed to be a private space with its own access and cosy interior features to make it a cool place for an active break or equally a quiet romantic retreat for two persons. We have a Friday-Friday changeover in peak holiday seasons. Three night short breaks are available outside of these times.

About Sam Williams

I am Sam Williams and i run the holiday lettings at Port Quin Farm Holidays. I live on the farm with my partner and our son. My Dad John and brother Mark run the farm and i help them out at busy times in the summer and for most of the Winter. I also run Cornish Coast Adventures in the summer season which offers Sea kayaking trips along the local coastline. I am a keen surfer and was until recently a crew member of the Port Isaac lifeboat for nearly ten years.

Sam Williams purchased this barn in 1880

Why Sam Williams chose North Cornwall

The Farmhouse has been in our family for well over 140 years and is now run along with the farm and other cottages nearby by the third and fourth generation of the Williams family.

The great thing about this little piece of Cornwall is that we are right in the middle of two great holiday locations Port Isaac and Polzeath but we are hidden away in the often undiscovered little gem that is the Port Quin so its nice and quiet and very often you can be the only one strolling down the lane for your morning swim in the harbour or your walk along the coast path!

What makes this barn unique

Great sea and inland views, surrounded by our farmland and beautiful coastal scenery. Stones throw from lots of good surf.

The main House has its own private access and garden area. The Farmhouse walls are approx a meter thick so there is no noise between the two properties and the annexe and garden/access areas have been designed with privacy in mind for guests. Outside: There is an outside seating/sunbathing area with BBQ and also a small grass area. The seating area gets all day sunshine and is sheltered from most wind directions with views over the surrounding fields. Utility Room: Washing machine, dishwasher.
