Property type farmhouse

About the property

3 bedrooms, sleeps 5, 1 bathroom, garden, rural location, near sea

Pretty detached cottage dating from the 1800's. It has a pretty and enclosed south facing garden with a sunny aspect which is great for barbecues or just sunbathing in peaceful surroundings. There are stunning views overlooking Mount's Bay and on towards the Lizard. The interior is tastefully furnished with plenty of original artwork on the walls.

There are two main reception rooms - one with a great wood-burner for winter evenings. The kitchen is fully fitted with ample crockery and cooking equipment. Upstairs there is a bathroom with toilet, sink, bath and shower facilities, one double bedroom, one twin bedroom and a small single room. All the bedrooms enjoy spectacular views. A well-behaved dog is welcome. A travel cot is available on request.

About Lyndsay Newman

We live in Bristol and have a rural family business in Somerset. I also work as a part-time community worker in Somerset. Our 2 children are now at West Country Universities. We enjoy spending as much time as we can at our cottage, walking, cycling, and visiting friends and family.

Lyndsay Newman purchased this farmhouse in 2012

Why Lyndsay Newman chose South West Cornwall

We both holidayed in Cornwall as children and my family moved to West Penwith 25 years ago. My mother lives in a nearby village. The sense of peace in Sancreed is magical, the views from the house are spectacular, and the surrounding area and beaches are wonderful. We can be at the beach in 10 minutes but also pop into Newlyn to stock up on fish in less than 10 minutes. We fell in love with the cottage when we saw it. It suits us perfectly.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The cottage gets flooded with light most of the day. It is south facing with great views. The rooms are attractively decorated with some original artwork on the walls. We love the gardens which surround the cottage too. The lane is so quiet you are far more likely to see a walker/cyclist/horse than a car!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We love this cottage! We all had a wonderful stay and hope to come again.

Cosy and homely

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long February weekend in the Newington farmhouse with our three teenage kids and a dog. We all loved the house with its original features and a log burner. The location was perfect with just a short drive to dog friendly beaches. We'd love to come back in summer for more beach walks and micro adventures! With thanks, Jo & family

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week at Newington Farm. We liked the spacious and comfortable living and dining room and the views from the bedrooms were lovely. We thought it was a great location with fantastic beaches nearby. We would highly recommend it for a relaxing time in Cornwall.

A cosy and homely rural cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing short break at this lovely rural cottage. We settled in very quickly and didn't want to leave!

The pictures really don't do this place enough justice. The cottage and the surrounding area are even more gorgeous in person. It was very clean and well-taken care of, and all appliances worked fine. We didn't realize that the washing machine was also a dryer, so that was a pleasant surprise and we definitely didn't mind being woken up by the sheep in the nearby feild.

During our short stay we visited Cape Cornwall and Kynance Cove, both beautiful parts of the cornish coast which we'd highly recommend visiting, if you haven't been already.

Lyndsay was very friendly and helpful when I spoke to her on the phone. Would reccommend this cottage to everyone. Thank you for having us :)

Stunning property in idyllic location

  • 5 of 5

A lovely farmhouse in a beautiful location with amazing views from all bedroom windows. Rural peaceful location yet near enough to coastal towns for something more lively should you need it. Great walks and historical interest right on the doorstep too! The farmhouse has absolutely everything you could need and really is home from home - thank you! Will definitely be returning.

Beautiful place in the countryside

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful retreat in Cornwall. Newington Farmhouse is a cosy little cottage that has everything you need for quiet and calm days. Lot´s of rooms with a warm, welcoming atmosphere and a great view from the upper windows. The surrounding country is an invitation for relaxed hikes. Never had such a lot of fresh air for month!

And the seaside is always in reach within a half hours drive. There are also many nice small villages to visit. We liked Mousehole a lot!

We´ve been here with our kids and they too loved it.

A great place

  • 5 of 5

We spent half term with our 18 year old twin sons and cocker spaniel Bertie in this lovely cottage which was perfectly situated to explore this beautiful part of England with both the North and South Coast within easy reach. The rooms had a very special and cosy atmosphere with great paintings everywhere ( a visit to the artist in her nearby studio is highly recommended, she is lovely and we bought a painting from her to remind us of our stay!). The views from the bedroom are stunning and waking up to the very special winter light creating its own artwork in the blue framed windows was a pleasure every morning. At the end of the day the sofas by the wood burner were the perfect place to curl up with our books. The cottage is very well stocked with everything you can think of that makes for a comfortable stay and we could not have found a more charming place.

Sennen Cove
Car: recommended

The village of Sancreed is in the Lands End peninsular and so is only a few miles from the expansive surf beach of Sennen on the north coast of Cornwall, yet it is also close to the sheltered coves of Porthcurno, Lamorna and Mousehole on the south coast. The Minack Theatre and St Michaels Mount are both located a few miles away. The fishing port of Newlyn with its vibrant harbour is just three miles away whilst the thriving market towns of Penzance and St Just are close by. St Ives is only a short drive away and is famous for the large artist's community and sandy beaches. For trips further afield Lands End airport flies regularly to the Scilly Isles. The village of Sancreed is designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty making it a popular destination for walkers. The Holy Well, the Beacon, a stone circle and an Iron Age village are all within walking distance of the cottage. Guests enjoy the tranquillity of a cottage which is only a stone's throw from so many holiday activities.The recent film, Summer In Februaury, focuses on the lives of artists living in the area at the turn of the century. Indeed Florence Munnings, around whom the book and film centre, along with Stanhope and Elizabeth Forbes, are buried in Sancreed churyard.
