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.

Such a beautiful home!
Conveniently located in Cornwall to shops pubs and hiking (need a car) this really tastefully decorated cottage is a pleasure to stay in. Shower great, washing machine and dishwasher handy, kitchen well appointed. Wood stove is very cozy! Hosts were lovely!
Perfect space to share with friends
The barn is the perfect space to share with friends just outside Falmouth.
The barn itself was immaculate with a well equipped kitchen. James and Fleur helped us with any questions we had leading up to our stay. We will definitely be back on this time we'd like to bring the children as I think they would love it here!
What a beautiful place to stay, clean, comfortable....just the perfect home from home. So friendly x
The perfect weekend away. Beautiful accommodation. James and Fleur are so friendly and made us feel so welcome. Property suitable for all age children and we all left with huge smiles. Thank you James and Fleur x
The perfect place!
We’d picked the property for location, close to Falmouth University Penryn campus so we could visit easily our 1st year student. But the farm setting gave us so much more, our 5 year old could get involved with feeding the animals and collecting eggs from the chickens which was great. The barn was immaculate on arrival and everything had been thought of and to a high standard. We took the advice of the owners and had booked a food delivery for our arrival and it was all in the fridge waiting for us when we arrived. James and Fleur gave us plenty of local advice and were on hand and quick to respond to any queries, even if it was can your pig have acorns?! The setting was peaceful and we happily spent time either relaxing at the barn as much as we did getting out and about. The kitchen was well equipped and we spent alternating nights eating in and going out but I could happily cook in that kitchen every night especially with the chickens providing eggs every day. Having the log burner made it feel really cosy and we would happily go back any season.
What a lovely place to stay!
We had a great week staying in The Granite Barn. My youngest loved visiting the animals on the farm. It was a very peaceful location but still only about a 10 min drive from Falmouth. We were close enough to visit St Michael's Mount, Trebah Gardens and The Lost Gardens of Helligan while we were there. The boys loved playing in the sea at Gyllyngvase where we knew the life guards were. The Barn had everything we needed and even spades to borrow for the beach! Perfect!
James and Fleur were great hosts - available to answer any questions about the area.
We had a lovely time staying here. A very warm welcome from James and Fleur, and Honey the dog! The cottage is very clean and comfortable, and the location ideal for exploring the West of Cornwall. Highly recommended!
The Granite Barn is part of a traditional 'old style' farmyard. There is another granite farm building (The Old Farm Cottage) which is available and sleeps 4. They are 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.
