A Charming and Traditional Cornish Farmhouse near Lanivet, Bodmin

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

A perfect location from which to explore Cornwall on foot, by bike, or by car...

The Old Farmhouse is exactly that, as 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. Over the years, the house has been separated into two, and you have your own private gated entrance, driveway and gardens to enjoy. 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.


Centrally located in beautiful Cornwall - just 20 minutes from both North and South Coasts, and perfect for exploring Poldark country, the Eden Project, cycling the Camel Trail, walking on Bodmin Moor and surrounding countryside including the Saints Way. The house sleeps up to 6 people, so ideal for family holidays and group of friends for both Summer and Winter breaks. Bring your doggies too!


The house is situated adjacent to a campsite, which is part of the property. This offers the advantage of dog-walking through 15 acres of meadows, visiting the chickens and pigs, watching the sunset over the valley, use of the games barn, the children's play area and the campsite shop.

Please note:

There is a large pond in the campsite grounds with deep water (albeit a distance from the house itself), so young children must be supervised at all times. Unfortunately, given the age of the house, it is not suitable for wheelchair users, or those with mobility issues.

About Alison Lewis

Alison and Neil recently gave up their hectic careers and long-distance commutes for an early semi-retirement in the Cornish countryside.

Alison Lewis purchased this house in 2017

Why Alison Lewis chose Lanivet

Alison and Neil chose Mena Farm to be their new home, due to the beauty and convenience of the location. It is full of wildlife - badgers, hedgehogs, rabbits deer, buzzards, woodpeckers, owls and kingfishers - are all regularly spotted. Neil is from Plymouth originally, so it's just a short distance to the city to see family and friends, and no more than 20 minutes to both North & South Cornish coasts.

What makes this house unique

Mena Farm is in a tiny hamlet of just four houses, all of which used to belong to the farm. It comprises 15 acres of beautiful Cornish countryside - both manicured and wild-camping fields, nature trails, woodlands, play area for children, and a large fish pond - perfect for families and their doggies to enjoy and explore.

Bring your doggies, go on adventures, look for badgers, rabbits, deer and buzzards, go star-gazing, visit the pigs, help collect eggs from the chickens, build a den, enjoy the sunsets, go fishing for tiddlers with the kids... Mena Farm is a magical place - you won't be disappointed. We're overlooked by Helman Tor, a Neolithic hill fort and one of the highest points on Bodmin Moor, in the heart of the beautiful Cornish countryside, and halfway between the North and South coasts. We're also very conveniently located - just 1 mile from the A30, and have around 15 acres to explore, including woodlands and a large pond.

We're a perfect spot for walkers and cyclists, with great walking and cycling trails directly from the site. We're at the mid-point of the Saints Way, between Padstow and Fowey, and minutes away from the Camel Trail, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Lanhydrock House, the Eden Project and Cardinham Woods. Lanivet village is just over a mile away with a fantastic pub and a 5-gold starred Fish and Chip Cafe. You'll find everything you need to enjoy your holiday. We offer a free daily delivery of fish and chips for those evenings when you just want to relax, and we have a small shop on site, free wifi, children's play area and a games barn.
