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.

BEAUTIFUL HOLIDAYS WITH GREAT VIEW

  • 5 of 5
We spent one wonderful week in The Shippen. Allison and Matthew were very friendly. OUR KIDS (13 and 10 years old) enjoyed the farm with the animals, especially molly, the dog. Our daughter would be very happy, if Allison could give her the receipe for the awesome scones, we get as a welcome.
We made a lot of trips, Eden Project and Tintagel for example.
We can realy recommend The Shippen and the farm and for sure we will book it once more for holidays there.
Thank you very much for these wonderful days.

FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWDS

  • 5 of 5
We love Markwell. We have visited the farm a number of times and have stayed in most of the cottages now. All are lovely, well equipped and comfortable. The owners, Allison and Matthew and their children are very welcoming, friendly and helpful.
Why do we return? A feeling of home from home, the beautiful views and the freedom to stroll around wonderful countryside with our dogs ensuring that after a few days all the stress of everyday life melts away. Will we go again - yes definitely! Would we recommend it - yes definitely.

SUTTILL FAMILY HOLIDAY 2010

  • 5 of 5
This was our second visit to Markwell Farm (we stayed in the Granary last time) so we knew what to expect. The accommodation was great with spacious bedrooms and two shower rooms/toilets (great!). The location is perfect - peace and tranquility all around but not too far to drive to get to towns/beaches etc. This visit we had our newest family member with us - a 3 month old cocker spaniel puppy! This was a great place for her - lots of lovely walks on the doorstep, and we didn't have to worry about road safety or passing traffic (there isn't any!!). Beaches at Seaton, Wembury (nr Plymouth) and Talland Bay all great - pet and child friendly and great for boogie boarding. We have 2 girls aged 10 and 7, they both love the farm and the surrounding area. We didn't eat out really (apart from picnic lunches - recommend the pasties from Bray the butchers in Tideford!), we either cooked or got takeaways. Saltash has a good fish and chip shop (eat in or take away) and an excellent Indian restaurant that also does takeaways. There is a very good Waitrose supermarket in Saltash too. Allison and Matthew (the owners) are very friendly and are always on hand if you have any problems or concerns and we were welcomed with a delicious cream tea of fresh scones with jam and cream - yummy! Looe and Polperro are a short drive away but be aware that they both get very busy during school holidays.
Our only negative is of a domestic nature. We feel that the property would benefit from a tumble dryer - there is a communal washing machine (free to use) and a rotary line in the garden (plus an airer in the cottage) but if the weather is inclement (as it was during our week) then it is virtually impossible to get anything dry as there was no heating on to help us out. Consequently we ended up with damp clothes hanging all around the house, which was a bit of a pain. This would have been easily remedied had we had access to a tumble dryer - we would have been more than happy to pay to use it. Apart from that minor grumble we love Markwell Farm, would definitely recommend it and look forward to returning soon.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. Unfortunately we cannot control the Cornish weather. Not many people who stay for a week use the washing machine but in a dire emergency I can usually dry a few things in the house. Summer heating is available if asked for at extra cost.
