LUXURY BARN SET IN 20 ACRES. BETWEEN TRURO AND FALMOUTH. EASTER AVAILABILITY.

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Mylor Bridge - The Old Farm Cottage

Generous detached cottage with two bedrooms for a couple or small family

The Old farm cottage is a beautiful farm building which have been converted to the highest standards. It forms the focus of a traditional small farm, (Little Goonreeve Farm) which has hardly changed since the 1950’s.

The cottage sleeps 3 to 4 in two separate bedrooms. There is a master bedroom with a king size bed and travel cot (if required). The second bedroom has a large bunk bed and views onto the garden and surrounding farmland.

The living/dining area is a generous double height space with a modern kitchen and French windows leading onto a decked area outside for al fresco dining. There is a small garden and open access to 20 acres of beautiful farmland.

Little Goonreeve farm is on the Mylor peninsular between Falmouth and Truro in an area of rich farming country with rolling green grazing pasture. We are well placed to enjoy the amazing attractions which Cornwall has to offer.

Our farm is nestled in the Mylor downs, within the rich rolling hills of the Mylor peninsular, bordering on the stunning coastline 'The Carrick Roads' which provides some of the best sailing and water sports in the country. The location is rural but placed within a short drive (5 miles) of Falmouth or Truro with interesting shopping, cafes, cinemas and local amenities. Its an ideal Mid Cornwall base for visits to the usual attractions of the Eden Project, surfing beaches on the North coast, and the wilds of the Lizerd Peninsular and further west to St Agnes and Zenna. Close by is the famous waterside Pandora Pub (our local) and Mylor Yacht harbor.

Visitors are free to wander in the 20 acres of rich grazing land with abundant hedges which provide an ideal habitat for local wildlife. Beef, pork, eggs and organic vegetables are available from the farm and we are keen to promote the providence of British food. Visitors are welcome to participate in any farm activities, such as feeding, as little or as much as they want or just relax and unwind in your rural home. It's up to you.

The cottage has been converted with the comfort and luxury of the visitors in mind. An oak floor throughout sets the tone for the decoration which is clean and modern but does include interesting details such as original oil paintingsand classic books with a Cornish theme.

The sitting area centres around a large log burner set in a granite fireplace. This is a new generation log burner that triple burns the wood to provide maximum heat output but is also economic on the quantity of wood needed. (A complimentary basket full of logs is provided on arrival). There is a wide screen tv, with freeview, and internet access.

The kitchen is well appointed with a dishwasher, slate work surfaces and integrated appliances.

The bathroom is compact but luxurious with a fully pressurized 'Megaflo' water system delivering a powerful shower or bath to soak away the activities of the day.

The master bedroom has a lovely expensive mattress.

The smaller bedroom has a generous bunk bed .

All linen is provided (Egyptian Cotton) and 'fluffy' generous towels. (Guests bring their own beach towels.

Great thought has gone into the design and features of our cottage to give our visitors a comfortable 'home from home 'but to retain the humble charm of a traditional tenanted farm. The yard is shared with another converted farm building which is known as 'The Granite Barn' and is separately available to sleep 6. The two buildings are far enough apart to ensure privacy but could also make an ideal booking for two families.

Thought has also gone into the environmental impact of introducing additional dwellings into a rural setting and the impact of the carbon footprint of our visitors. Solar water heaters, super insulation and general sustainability have all been factored in to make this dwelling as environmentally friendly as possible.

We live on site in the Farmhouse and are on hand to help out as little or as much as you want.

In short our farm and holiday cottages are our passion of and we would love to share this passion with our Cornish visitors. The most important thing for us is that our guests have a fantastic holiday and return home with unforgettable memories.

Fleur James William and Madelene moved to Little Goonreeve Farm in 2007. Fleur grew up in the farm down the hill from us (Barras Moor Farm) with her 3 sisters. We spent the early years of our married life in Middlesex trying to work out how we could manage a move to Cornwall and took the plunge when our eldest ,William, was about to start secondary school.

James Davis or Fleur Davis purchased this cottage in 2007

We knew and loved the area so the problem was to find a house. It took us a year and we ended up in almost the first one we ever saw which Fleur remembered from her youth. It was in a sorry state but with a lot of hard work we have stripped back and rebuilt four separate dwellings.

We were attracted to Little Goonreeve Farm because it had changed little since the 1950's when the Milking Parlour in the middle of the yard was built. One of our aims of the restoration was to keep the essence of a small working farm.

As a family we also care about the providence of food and have benefited from the rearing of livestock in a low intensive environment.

We love our farm and aim to pass that onto our guests.

We also realise that people have worked hard for their holiday and everyone enjoys a bit of luxury now and then.

Very lovely cottage, situated away from traffic, but easily accessible by car. James and Fleur are very welcoming and helpful. The location is perfect to explore Falmouth, some Cornish gardens as well as some lovely beaches.

Would love to return

The best place I have stayed in Cornwall

  • Review Submitted: 12-Jul-2013

This cottage was perfect for my wife and I and our two children. Immaculately presented, very comfortable and well equipped. I haven't found a better self catering cottage in Cornwall. The children loved feeding the animals too. Being close to the Falmouth beaches and only 40 mins to the north coast meant we didn't have to drive for hours to find great days out and everyone was glad to sink into very comfy beds at the end of a busy day at the beach.
The family made us very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We will be coming again and would recommend Little Goonreeve Farm to anyone.

Fantastic cottage and hospitality

The cottage is gorgeous, and very well equipped. We needed nothing that had not been provided. It was absolutely spotless on arrival with good quality linens and towels. James and Fleur were so welcoming and helpful - we particularly enjoyed "feeding time at the zoo" every evening, the animals were a treat. I would whole heatedly recommend this cottage to those who like a taste of the countryside - don't forget your wellies!

The Old Farm Cottage is part of a traditional farmyard. There is another granite farm building (The Granite Barn) which is available and sleeps 6.The cottage is ideally placed to experiance the best that Cornwall has to offer. We are situated on the rolling green hills of the Mylor downs equidistant between the historic town of Falmouth and Truro.The safe family beaches of the south coast are close (3 Miles) and the more wilder surfing beaches of the North coast are a short drive away. (9 miles). Learn to sail from Mylor Sailing school or just hire a canoe and paddle to our local pub. The famous waterside 'Pandora Inn' overlooking the beautiful Restronguet Creek and the Carrick Roads. There are a wealth of beaches, creeks and stunning scenery to explore. The beaches of Gyllynvase and Maenporth are local. Pendower and Rosevine are short ferry ride to the Roseland Peninsular. Keep an eye on the weather. When the 'surfs up' go to Perranporth, Fistral or Gwithian beaches for surfing. These are just a fraction of possibilities. Cycle the Bisso or the Camel bike trail. Have Fish and chips at Rick Steins in Padstow or Falmouth. Visit the gardens of Trellisic, Glendurgan,Trebah or Heligan. Go to the Maritime Museum in Falmouth after the Oyster festival. Go to a 'gig' in a multitude of places including Miss Peapods (our local venue for live music). There is plenty to do to suit a variety of tastes and interests. Or just sit back and relax back at the Farm. It's your holiday.
