                                                              Wonderful location

                                                              If you're looking for a peaceful location with fabulous views the look no further than here. The views from the windows are superb, across and along the river, with the viaduct framing it and the fields all around it's perfect if that's what you're looking for. Absolutely fantastic for stargazing on a clear night! The Shippen was comfortable, well appointed and, apart from an awkwardly placed microwave and fridge freezer under the stairs is all you need for a self catering holiday. The main bedroom is accessed through the twin but if a young family is staying that's probably not a problem. Alison, our host, was really friendly and welcoming. Quite easy to get to Plymouth or over to Dartmoor and only a short drive down to places like Looe, Fowey or Charlestown and the Eden Project. A great place to stay. Mobile phone signal is poor though.

                                                              Fantastic family cottage!

                                                              We had a fantastic week on Markwell Farm. Our 6 & 3 year old were desperate to meet Knuckles the cat (we'd looked on the website & Facebook and seen all the animals)! The farm was easy to find down a long, pretty country lane. We stayed at the Dairy, which was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The beds were perfect and we all slept very well - the children loved the teddies on their beds and it made it feel like home from home. Allison greeted us with a delicious cream tea and homemade apple juice! The children loved exploring the farm, meeting the goats, horses, Honey the Lab puppy and 'driving' the tractor! The view is spectacular and the area was so peaceful. We were very lucky and had great weather. We visited many places that were very easy to reach: Mawgan Porth beach, Watergate Bay, Tintagel Castle, Mevagissy and Polperro. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again at Markwell Farm and Allison and her daughter were always friendly and happy to help. Thanks for everything!

                                                              Just returned from a very enjoyable stay at this property and highly recommend. Great location situated on South West Coast Path and in Whitsand Bay. With two teenage daughters the house facility's such as WI-FI, games room and hot tub were appreciated. The information provided by the owners Rod and Suze to there clients was accurate and very useful.
