About the property

Barn in Roseland Peninsula, Cornwall, England - Quiet Rural Location, Within Easy Walking Distance Of The Beach, Beautifully Furnished

A fabulous, recently converted barn in a quiet rural location set on the rolling Cornish hillside above the stunning Portholland Cove. Enjoy the silence from the attractive enclosed garden or sit and relax in the beautifully furnished and comfortable open plan living room. Take a stroll down the hill, across a stream onto the unspoilt traditional Cornish cove to experience a uniquely peaceful holiday. If you enjoy walking we have the spectacular Cornish Coastal path stretching east or west from which you can explore hidden sandy bays or walk to Portloe for a crab sandwich lunch before strolling back enjoying spectacular panoramic views from the cliff tops. A fabulous base also from which to explore the notoriously beautiful Roseland Peninsula with its winding maze of lanes with the flower filled hedgerows, attractive villages and the sandy beaches of Carne and Pendower.

About Justine Ross

Hamish and Justine Ross arrived at Ventonveth in September 2013. Hamish is employed by Caerhays as the Farm Manager and Justine recently sold her residential lettings agency in Truro and now works for the estate looking after their holiday lets.

Ventonveth had been rather neglected over the last few years and when we arrived the gardens were completely overgrown, fields just areas of weeds and the house in very poor condition. The barn was just a shell.

Over the last year, we have worked hard to create a tranquil and beautiful setting for us and our holidaymakers and have renovated the barn to offer comfortable and beautifully presented holiday accommodation with a separate garden area. The whole project of Ventonveth is on-going and we hope our holiday clients will return again over the years to watch it grow and mature.

Why Justine Ross chose Truro & Falmouth area

The Rosalind Peninsula is renown as being one of the most picturesque parts of Cornwall and we were lucky enough to be offered a farming position in this idyllic part of the country.

To be able to amble down to the sea after a hard days work, sit on golden sands and watch waves lap on the shore whilst sipping a glass of chilled wine, makes life pretty wonderful

Notes on accommodation: Ventonveth Barn is a wonderful holiday location for those wanting a quiet and relaxing holiday. It is ideal for couples on a romantic break or those with children wanting a cove with sand and rock pools on the doorstep. Being situated in such a beautiful part on the Rosaland Peninsula it is the perfect getaway. Due to it being a farm setting with stock and working dogs, we prefer no pets. Outside: The farm is accessed by an unmade farm lane. The barn lies in the heart of the steading and the owner's gardens but has its own private garden. There is a paved terrace with table and chairs and a lawned area surrounded by beds with a rotary dryer. The gardens are south facing and are exceedingly sunny and look across the rolling Cornish countryside. Utility Room: Separate utility/washing room in nearby dairy with washing machine, small freezer and rail to hang wetsuits. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: High quality bed linen and bedding, - fresh linen provided for stays of more than one week. Bath towels provided but please bring your own beach towels.

Wonderful Ventonveth

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully appointed property lies in a very special part of Cornwall. The welcome we received from our hosts was exceptional. The nearby beaches and costal walks at Portholland and Portluney are a delight. Rural coastal living at its very best. Totally stress free apart from the occasionally challenging driving on Cornwall's rural lanes.

Idyllic - living the dream!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best self catering place we have ever stayed. The barn was packed with everything you would need. A good open plan size, thoughtfully decorated. A lovely enclosed garden, BBQ and patio. Fantastic views, great walks and beaches. Lovely owners. We will definitely be booking again!

Excellant Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is easily one of the nicest & best equipped cottages that we've stayed in. It's only been rented out since April so everything is in very good condition & the mattresses are extremely comfortable. The area is lovely with plenty of things to do; Eden & Heligan aren't too far away. Close to part of the Cornwall Coastal Path. I would certainly recommend to family & friends & we'll be back.

Perfect cottage in beautfiiful location

  • 5 of 5

This was positively the best cottage we have stayed in. Everything has been carefully and generously thought through. A delightful welcome basket awaited us.

The setting is unique, the cottage is on a farm and also close to Portholland beaches with easy access to the beautiful Rose Peninsula. It was a joy to be greeted by the dogs each time we returned to the cottage.

Definitely a cottage to be recommended.

Portholland comprises two small hamlets (East and West), each with a cove which at low tide are joined by a large expanse of golden sand.

The beautiful beaches of Carne to the west and Porthlune to the east are a short car journey away, each with golden sands and great fun for swimming and if the waves allow, bodyboarding.
