The Old Farmhouse is exactly that, parts of the house date back to the 18th century. Bags of character but with all the modern comforts you'd expect to enjoy your holiday. To make life easier for guests with children, the house is fully equipped with fire-guards, a travel cot, baby stair gate and a folding high-chair. The beds are incredibly comfortable with memory foam mattresses and hypo allergenic pillows, fresh white cotton bedding, white towels and hot water supplied by our solar system. There are log burners in the living room and the dining room, with plenty of firewood provided for your first night, and the house is centrally heated throughout. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the essentials, including an American style fridge/freezer, gas range cooker with electric oven, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. Outside there is an area suitable for BBQ's and firepits (both supplied) and a porch providing space for drying clothes, wetsuits and towels for when you come back from the beach. Mena is no longer a working farm but you can visit our pet Kune Kune pigs, Rodney and Del-Boy, and help collect eggs from our lovely chickens.
The farmhouse is adjacent to a small campsite, so whilst you have your own private gated entrance, driveway and gardens to enjoy, you can also enjoy our campsite facilities, including 15 acres of meadows, woodlands and ponds to explore. Here you can picnic and enjoy the sunset over the valley, go star-gazing, play pool or ping pong in the games barn. There is also a small on-site shop with all the essentials, and a children's play area - great for making new friends! During school Summer holidays, we host regular visits from a local pizza van, cocktail lounge, and a barista. We also offer a free daily delivery of fish and chips all year round - perfect for when you don't want to cook!
Being in the centre of Cornwall is a real bonus, as both coasts are within 20 minutes drive. Just check the weather forecast and decide which coast has the best weather on that particular day, or just cosy in with a good book or film and a toasty hot fire.
If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to ask and we will be happy to help. We love Mena, and it makes us happy to share it with our guests. There is so much to do on and off-site locally, we're happy to help as much as we can to ensure our guests make the most of their stay.
