Notre maison

The farmhouse is situated in a rural area close to the cornish cliffs. The view is across a valley designated as being of outstanding natural beauty with view out to the Atlantic and Wolf Rock lighthouse ..The cliff nearby is owned by the National Trust and is crossed by the South West cliff path which runs around the UK coastline .

The garden has several slate terraces for al fresco dining, a pizza oven, a meadow and wildlife pond.You can cook in the oven and keep warm by the firebowl and watch the amazing night sky which has little light polution .There is a herb and vegetable garden to add to your table .
On some evenings you can watch barn owls hunting across the valley and in the summer months the swallows swoop dipping their wings as they drink from the pond.There is a summer house should you want to sleep sheltered from the dew but in the open air .
The nearest airports are Newquay ,Exeter and Bristol and one way which has worked for other visitors might be via Dublin if coming across the Atlantic .
