About Lorraine Dunne

I run a bed and breakfast and always intended to holiday let our annexe but a friend rented it for eight years so now he has gone we have refurbished it ready to let. We have a small holding of about 9 acres with Horses, Chicken and a small Jack Russell, Puzzle who is quite timid but will be a friend for life if you throw him a ball.

Lorraine Dunne purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Lorraine Dunne chose Cornwall

Our property is on the trails to Eden project so we have a lot of off road riding/cycling on our doorstep yet only two miles from St Austell for shopping or four miles from the coast, with the historic Port of Charlestown which hosts the Tall Ships and often used for filming or Mevagissey a quaint fishing Village both a short drive away. The lost gardens of Heligan are near Mevagissey and a regular ferry service takes foot passengers from Mevagissey to Fowey an upmarket estuary sailing port.

What makes this apartment unique

Beautiful Valley setting with views across gardens and field, horses and sometimes deer's can been seen in the field outside the sitting room while chicken and rabbits venture onto the lawn ( so much for the Jack Russell!)

Opposite the entrance is Duck lane where a short walk past the mill with a working waterwheel takes you to the English China Clay Museum and Country Park. The trail starts here to the Eden Project or down to St Austell and eventually the Lost Gardens of Heligan.

Excellent for visits to this part of cornwall.

Lovely little annex, smallish but everything possible there. Great veranda and gardens, 2 jack Russell's and 3 horses. Owners very obliging, couldn't ask for more apart from sunshine.

What a little gem ! ! !

  • 5 of 5

This property is a little gem !!! It is a perfect retreat for a couple to stay in, very clean, compact in size yet so well equipped with everything one would need. Although living in the annexe to the house it has its own entrance and is perfectly isolated from the main building with no intrusion whatsoever to one's privacy. It is set in a lovely garden with decked area outside and lovely views up into the countryside. We loved watching the various birds in the garden and Loraine's horses in the field.

The owner Loraine is lovely, very friendly and so welcoming. She was there for assistance if needed but not in any way intrusive to one's independence and privacy.

Providence Farm's location makes it an ideal base to explore across Cornwall from coast to coast [ from Mevaggisey to Padstow/Wadebridge]. It is also ideal for visiting the popular tourist attractions of the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Helligan. Our favourite visit however was the house and gardens at Lanhydrock [National Trust]. It is beautiful ! !

We would thoroughly recommend this property and will most certainly be looking to rebook for a future visit.

Many thanks Loraine ... Len & Sue Tresidder [May 2016]
