About Sam Williams

I am Sam Williams and i run the holiday lettings at Port Quin Farm Holidays. I am 34 and live on the farm with my girlfriend. 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 and Coasteering sessions along the local coastline. i am a keen surfer and have been a crew member of the Port Isaac lifeboat for nearly ten years.

Sam Williams purchased this farmhouse in 1949

Why Sam Williams chose Port Isaac

Trewint farmhouse and the surrounding 40 acres of grassland was added to Scarrbine Farm in the late 1930's by my grandfather and slowly the 3 old barns that formed the original farmyard have been sympathetically converted to offer holiday accommodation. The Farmhouse was originally split into two halves with the servants half being North facing and the Posh half (which is now rented) facing the south for all day sunshine. There are even still servants bells connected to each room! The cottages and Farmhouse are located on a small quiet road that runs down to the harbour at Port Quin. You can easily link on to the main coastal road about 2 miles away where you can then explore further north or South. We are in one of the last little secret spots in North Cornwall which makes it a great place to escape!

What makes this farmhouse unique

We are surrounded by our own 400 acre farm, so other than a few sheep and our other three cottages there shouldn't be any noisy neighbours. Port Quin is a short walk down the road. We even have our own access to the beaches at Lundy bay through our cliff top fields if you want somewhere easy to park in the summer months!

Absolutely magical.


Wonderful hosts, stunning historical location and perfectly positioned to explore all the hidden gems of Northern Cornwall. Take the time to escape and leave your phone and laptops at home. Warm and snug and well supported household services, my family and I highly recommend this home.
