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.

Clean, cosy, fully equipped and an ideal spot for exploring North and South Coast of Cornwall....

A lovely week, even tho the weather was diabolical.

Will be returning again for sure.

Lovely views but rental place could be cleaner

  • 4 of 5

The place has exceeded our expectations regarding the space and views from the apartment. Frankly I think it is an undersold point. The place is well equipped and is perfect for a couple. The views from the windows onto the fields and horses are glorious. Therefore I am deeply disappointed for having to write that the cleanness of the place could be improved especially of the floors (apart from it everything else was spotless). Unfortunately I have found many long hair of the previous visitors and marks on the floor of spilled liquid.

Cozy apartment, perfect location for exploring Cornwall.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely compact apartment. Clean, and with a very comfortable bed. Although it is called Providence farm, it is not a working farm which was a bit disappointing for us.

Excellent for visits to this part of cornwall.

  • 4 of 5

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.
