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.

Great base for exploring the area

We (2 adults, plus children aged 11, 14 and 16) spent a lovely, relaxing week here. The property was roomy and comfortable and provided a peaceful base from which to explore Cornwall. We were delighted with the home-made cream tea on arrival and the welcome from Allison. The property is definitely tucked away and a car would be essential for exploring the area. We enjoyed visits to Bodmin, Looe, Polperro and cycled the Camel Trail. A choice of supermarkets within a 15 min drive. We also enjoyed the company of the various farm cats and dogs and the opportunity to explore the farm itself. We would definitely visit again, and recommend it to others.

What a beautiful location and view you have here. We enjoyed our hikes around the farm and all of the animals here. We did many lovely outings while we were here.
Lanhydrock house, Polperro, loved it, gorgeous.
Looe, good for tea, Whitsand bay, great for the kids to run around and climb rocks. St Ives and St Michaels mount.
Cornwall impressed us with its beauty, and cute towns, it feels lost in time!

10/10 for this lovely comfy cottage, big enough for my large family and with a view so wonderful dad didn't feel he needed to go anywhere else for the best part of the 2 weeks! We had lots of fun seeing the best bits of Cornwall - which is all very accessible. A few miles of ridiculously twee conutry lanes takes you straight onto the A38 - perfect!
