Landrake Cottage Rental Photos and Description

4 cottages (sleeping 2-6) on a 400 acre working farm in a quiet rural location.

Markwell Farm is situated about 1.5 miles from Landrake village and the A38. Easily accessible, it is reached just 5 miles after crossing the River Tamar at Plymouth. Its quiet location affords superb views over rolling countryside with the spectacular St Germans viaduct and the River Tiddy as its centrepiece. The farm, which is 400 acres, has suckler cows and a large sheep flock as well as growing arable crops. Of course there are also a collection of dogs, cats, ponies and pet lambs to greet you and make friends with. Two 18th century barns have been tastefully converted into 4 cottages each sleeping between 2 and 6 people. Offering high quality, self-catering accommodation in a tranquil location but within easy reach of the best that Cornwall has to offer. Children are welcome and we can accept dogs in some of the cottages. While it is a commercially run farm, features have been enhanced to ensure that visitors are able to enjoy their stay to the full. Find Markwell Farm on Google.

Markwell Farm: Visitors are encouraged to walk round the farm and enjoy the views and the animals. There is plenty of space for children to play.

Look out for the Buzzards and the Badgers, listen for the owls at night.

Here at Markwell we have a 40 cow suckler beef herd which calves in the spring and a large sheep flock. The flock is made up mainly of commercial breeds but we do have a few rare breed White faced Dartmoor ewes who are a small hardy breed local to the area. This breed of sheep featured on the award-winning film 'Warhorse', filmed on location on Dartmoor.

Also on the farm we have a collection of vintage tractors which range in age from 1926 to 1960. We will be happy to show them to you.

Beaches: South East Cornwall enjoys some lovely sandy beaches. From the small villages of Kingsand and Cawsand to the rock pools of Downderry and Seaton. At low tide there is a large stretch of sand at Whitsand Bay, though the walk back up is a bit steep. Looe combines the beach for the children with the shops and wonderful cream teas.

Finding us: We can be found on any major search engine where you can also access our live webcam.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 13, 2013

We stayed her for a week and had an absolutely wonderful stay. The Granary is a nice and cozy appartment with an amazing view. The bed I slept in was very comfortable. The peacefulness of the place is relaxing. The animals are a major plus when you have kids. My 10 year old daughter had a hard time lsaying goodbye to all the lambs, who she had been allowed to feed by bottle.
It is also near Plymouth, Cotele, Looe (beach) and other day trip activities.
Allison welcomed us with an Cornish tea. She is very friendly woman. The fresh eggs and the home made apple juice are delicious.
I can certainly recommend a stay at Markwell Farm.

The Granary at Markwell farm

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 19, 2012
  • Stayed: Apr 2012
We always enjoy staying here. We visit Plymouth every year for a show at the Guildhall and have found Markwell Farm the best place to stay.
If you want a stay in the quiet of the countryside this is perfect, the view over the estuary is wonderful, and changes as the tides come in and out. If you don't want to cook for yourself there are several good restaurants nearby.
Take good shoes/boots, this is a working farm and there are plenty of opportunities to get close to the animals if you want to, and walk in the local area.
It's an ideal spot for visiting the city attractions in Plymouth or for venturing further into Cornwall to places like the Eden Project.
Matthew and Allison are excellent hosts, and very welcoming.

We came for a few days at the beginning of October and had a lovely time. It was great to see Alli and Matt again. The weather was nice and we managed to do lots of walking round the farm and next villages. The views from the farm and cottages are magical and you feel very close to nature here. The cottages are very warm and welcoming and the bed was lovely and comfortable. We would recommend the Eliot Arms in St germans for a gorgeous, well priced evening meal.....fabulous. We will be back very soon.

A week in Cornwall

We had a wonderful week in Landrake. We just loved the little cottage. It was cosy and had a beautiful view. The weather was just perfect and Allison and Matthew were just lovely.
It is a little remote but if you have a car there are numerous possibilities for day trips. I hope we can spend some more time there.
