About the property

Holiday Home near Polzeath, Wadebridge, England - One Mile From Polzeath Beach And 2 Minutes Walk From A Footpath Across Our Farmland To The Coast

The Wheat Store is located in a peaceful setting at one end of our traditional Cornish farmhouse. It has stunning views and is newly furnished in a contemporary style.

It is ideally located for surfing at Polzeath, sailing at Rock, cycling the Camel Trail and walking the Coastal Footpath. Padstow can be reached by ferry from Rock or by cycling along the edge of the Camel Estuary from Wadebridge. The picturesque fishing village or Port Isaac is only 5 miles away.

Because the Wheat Store has central heating and a cosy wood burner it is ideal for short winter breaks as well as summer holidays

About Clare Parnell

Mike & Clare Parnell live in Carruan farmhouse adjoining the property. Clare grew up at Carruan and it remains a family farm which is now run by Mike, Clare and their nephew Philip.

The farm has 1000 breeding ewes. The main lambing is for a month from the end of January and a smaller flock in March and April. 140 calves are bought from a local dairy farm in February and reared through to sale at 18 - 20 months. The farm also grows wheat and barley. Although most of the farm buildings are situated away from Carruan there is still plenty going on should guests want to get involved - perhaps helping move sheep to fresh pastures aided by the 4 working dogs.

Clare Parnell purchased this apartment in 1950

Why Clare Parnell chose North Cornwall

This is a family farm that was bought by Clare's father in 1958. It is a fabulous place to live and work.

What makes this apartment unique

If guests would like to learn more about the farming they are very welcome to get involved.

Having lived in this area all their lives Mike and Clare have a lot of knowledge about the best places to visit and are very happy to share that knowledge with guests

All the comforts of home, in breathtaking Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

The Wheat Store is a beautiful property; we had everything we needed for our week here. What made our stay memorable, in addition to the apartment and its surroundings, was the helpfulness of the owners. We had to deal with a medical emergency; Clare and Mike helped us out in ways large and small. We will never forget their kindness. We would return to this property in a heartbeat.

Lovely apartment in peaceful location with beautiful views over fields to the sea

  • 5 of 5

My son and I really enjoyed our stay. We were close to the beach where we met up with friends and the boys could go surfing, yet in the evening we had the peace of being away from the crowds-time for me to relax and watch the birds swooping across the fields, and for my son to use his Playstation or watch a dvd. The apartment was spacious, well appointed and tastefully decorated, and the huge sofa was so comfortable!

Great apartment, comfy bed, terrific views, wonderful attractions nearby

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many holiday homes all over the world and yours was one of the finest. The sea views, walking on the coast paths nearby and the food and views from Polzeath restaurants were fabulous. And finally, visiting the Eden Project and biking on the Camel Trail were highlights of our trip. Great apartment, great beds, well-supplied kitchen.

Everything was perfect

  • 5 of 5

The Wheat Store was the perfect place to relax and it has breathtaking views of the surrounding area including stunning views of the sea. The flat has everything needed for a relaxing break and more! There's a fireplace, amazing sofa, huge bed, modern kitchen (with dishwasher!) and to top it all off a private garden with BBQ.

The owners are lovely people and made us feel welcome without intruding. We didn't need anything but I am certain that if we asked for anything Mike and Clare would bend over backwards to provide it.

The location is quiet but only a 3-minute drive to the beautiful beach and shops. It is also a great base for exploring the area and only a short drive from Rock, Port Isaac, etc.

We cannot wait to go back!

Fabulous Luxury Stay at The Wheat Store

  • 5 of 5

We had three nights at The Wheat Store in September 2016 and it was just fabulous. Claire & Mike have a beautiful property and make you feel very welcome. The apartment is beautifully appointed and is very clean and warm, with lovely views over the farmland and to Polzeath.

Everything from the large, very comfortable bed, the large fluffy towels, the well equipped kitchen and just the comfort and space made this a very relaxing environment to be in.

The welcome gift of scones, homemade jam, clotted cream & bottle of beer for the better half, was a lovely touch and very much appreciated. We will look forward to staying again and would highly recommend this gorgeous apartment. Many thanks Claire & Mike.
