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.

Beautiful cottage in wonderful surroundings
A beautifully converted barn cottage with everything you need for a comfortable stay.
Zum zweiten Mal ein schöner Urlaub!
Wir waren jetzt zum zweiten Mal dort und haben die Zeit in vollen Zügen genossen. James und Flur sind wunderbare freundliche Gastgeber. Die Farm ist herrlich. Wir lieben die weiten Felder, das Schwein, die Pferde und die frischen Eier von den Hühnern. Es gibt mehrere Strände in der Nähe (15 Minuten) und auch der Surfstrand in Newquay ist nur ca. 40 Minuten entfernt. Dieses Jahr durften wir mit James auch noch Apfelsaft pressen. Wir haben uns rundherum wohlgefühlt.
Beautiful cottage in a fabulous location!
We had a wonderful week in the beautiful Old Farm Cottage. The accommodation is lovely and well thought out and the surrounding farm land is gorgeous. It suited us - a family of 4 and our dog perfectly. James & Fleur are fabulous hosts and gave us some top local tips. It’s a really beautiful part of the world and we will definitely be back to explore some more!
Great Cottage. Great Location
A great cottage in a great location. You can easily get to all the places you’d want to see on a visit to Cornwall. The cottage is very close to the A39 yet set in such a quiet & peaceful small holding that you would never think you were close to one of Cornwall’s main arterial links. The accommodation is excellent. A barn conversion that actually only retained around 5% of the original structure but you’d never know without reading the guest information supplied. The cottage has been transformed into a homely yet contemporary holiday let & the attention to detail throughout makes it feel like a home away from home. Fleur & James (owners) are very friendly & approachable hosts who live on the small holding & are always available if you have any questions or need help with anything. The only minor improvement I would make is a ramp or an extra step & grab handle at the front door & a couple of grab handles in the bathroom to make the property more accessible for disabled guests. We will definitely be returning for another stay & Oscar our King Charles Spaniel will be joining us again too as he also seemed to have a great time. The sooner the better 😊👍
Lovely cottage in Cornwall
We had a lovely stay at Little Goonreeve farm. The cottage was lovely. It was very clean with all fixtures and fittings in working order. We were very happy with it. We have a six year old who really enjoyed staying on a farm and going out to feed the animals with James in the mornings. The area is great with lots to do with children and importantly for us, lots of dog friendly activities. We woukd certainly come back to stay at Little Goonreeve Farm and May well do so next year. Thanks James and Fleur for everything and in particular for being such accommodating hosts.
It was great to see your son enjoying the farm and animals.
A lovely holiday home, very clean and well appointed. The grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed the interaction with the animals.
Would certainly come and stay again.
It was great to see the kids enjoying their time with the animals.
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.
