About James and Fleur
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 and Fleur purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why James and Fleur chose Cornwall
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.
What makes this Cottage unique
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.

The cottage was exactly as described, with a lovely log burner, good kitchen and bathroom facilities and comfy beds.
The location is great with easy access to Falmouth and Truro as well as the main access roads to other destinations in Cornwall.
The hosts were easy to get hold of if we needed them, and always friendly.

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.
