This fully equipped 4 bed (sleeps 10), 3 bathroom farmhouse, with separate single level fully equipped one double bedroom cottage (sleeps 2-4), is perfect for large groups or families, especially multi-generation families. The cottage is a quiet haven if the house gets too noisy! There's loads of entertaining space inside and the south facing patio garden is great for alfresco dining, entertaining and relaxing. There's parking for five cars. Set in a rural location but close to beaches etc.

The space
The farmhouse sleeps a maximum of 10, using the family room to sleep two in a double bed and two in a bunk bed.

Upstairs there are three double bedrooms and a family room (one bunk bed and one double bed). There is a family bathroom with WC, basin and bath with shower over. The main bedroom has an ensuite shower room with basin and separate WC.

Downstairs there is a large double ended, south facing sitting room with sofas and wood burner at one end and day room at the other with space for children to play on the floor. Off the sitting room is the dining/breakfast room with additional sofa. The farmhouse table will seat 8 people comfortably but can squeeze more, depending on their size. Off the dining room is; a side door to outside, the utility room with upright freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer, clothes airer and downstairs bathroom with shower, WC and basin; plus the fully equipped kitchen with 110cm wide four oven induction range cooker, tall larder fridge, dishwasher, kettle, toaster, microwave, and back door access to outside.

In the middle of the sitting room, the front door of the farmhouse leads onto a south facing patio, complete with 6' round table, which can comfortable seat 10. There is a large charcoal BBQ and ash bin. The lawn area is bordered by shrubs to one side and a cornish hedge alongside the driveway.

Nestled behind the farmhouse, the spacious detached barn conversion cottage promises a warm welcome. All on one level, it has vaulted beams, slate floors, central heating, a cute wood-burner and squashy sofas in the comfortable open plan living-room with fully equipped kitchen. One of the sofas is a sofa-bed and could come in handy for an extra person, or two children, but it is in the main room. Guests must bring their own bedding if they would like to use the sofa-bed.

There is a separate double bedroom with chest of draws, mirror and two bedside tables with draws. Between the main room and the bedroom is a separate shower room with WC and basin.

Outside the cottage is a table and two chairs, a charcoal BBQ and gravelled parking for a couple of cars. The annexe has it's own wi-fi access.

Where you’ll be

Talskiddy, England, United Kingdom

The farmhouse is in one of the oldest Hamlets in Cornwall, in a beautiful valley that leads to the Sea, five miles away at Mawgan Porth. The property is geographically very well located; close to many beaches, bustling fishing ports, market towns and only half an hour from the City of Truro and the south coast of St Austell.

Unlike many places on route to the coast, the hamlet doesn’t suffer from summer traffic congestion as there is no through road (you have to enter and leave by the same road). As such, it is always a quiet and relaxing place, even in the heights of summer.

Besides a small green with swing, and a post box, there are no communal facilities.
