A fabulous, recently converted barn in a quiet rural location set on the rolling Cornish hillside above the stunning Portholland Cove. Enjoy the silence from the attractive enclosed garden or sit and relax in the beautifully furnished and comfortable open plan living room. Take a stroll down the hill, across a stream onto the unspoilt traditional Cornish cove to experience a uniquely peaceful holiday. If you enjoy walking we have the spectacular Cornish Coastal path stretching east or west from which you can explore hidden sandy bays or walk to Portloe for a crab sandwich lunch before strolling back enjoying spectacular panoramic views from the cliff tops. A fabulous base also from which to explore the notoriously beautiful Roseland Peninsula with its winding maze of lanes with the flower filled hedgerows, attractive villages and the sandy beaches of Carne and Pendower.

About Justine Ross
Hamish and Justine Ross arrived at Ventonveth in September 2013. Hamish is employed by Caerhays as the Farm Manager and Justine recently sold her residential lettings agency in Truro and now works for the estate looking after their holiday lets. Ventonveth had been rather neglected over the last few years and when we arrived the gardens were completely overgrown, fields just areas of weeds and the house in very poor condition. The barn was just a shell. Over the last year, we have worked hard to create a tranquil and beautiful setting for us and our holidaymakers and have renovated the barn to offer comfortable and beautifully presented holiday accommodation with a separate garden area. The whole project of Ventonveth is on-going and we hope our holiday clients will return again over the years to watch it grow and mature.
Why Justine Ross chose Portholland
The Rosalind Peninsula is renown as being one of the most picturesque parts of Cornwall and we were lucky enough to be offered a farming position in this idyllic part of the country. To be able to amble down to the sea after a hard days work, sit on golden sands and watch waves lap on the shore whilst sipping a glass of chilled wine, makes life pretty wonderful

Nice place,nice people,loved it.
Very nicely laid out and well-equipped cottage with lovely rural view
Justine was really welcoming and helpful. The cottage was bigger than we expected, kitchen well-equipped, good sofa, and the bed very comfortable. It's in such a peaceful spot, just birdsong. The night skies are amazing. Easy walk down to Portholland, and recommend the beautiful though quite hard two hour walk along the coast path to Portloe, where there's a pub and a pub/restauarant. Lots of other footpaths too. Great place for a relaxing break.
Perfect cottage in beautiful rural location
We had an amazing Christmas at this lovely little detached cottage on a farm. It is very comfortable and well equipped (we cooked a full Christmas dinner without wanting for anything!). The location is great, around a mile inland from a small beach and just along the coast from Mevagissey. It is a brilliant base for exploring Cornwall.
Justine and Hamish couldn’t have been more helpful and had even put in a real Christmas tree and welcoming goodies which was lovely.
We hope to return in one day in spring/summer so we can enjoy the garden and explore the area further.
Peaceful, well-equipped, and wonderful hosts.
The Barn was one of the most well equipped properties we have every stayed in.
The property has been prepared to give visitors the best holiday experience, and we would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation to all our friends and family. The owners were lovely, and we are very grateful to them for renting out The Barn. We had a brilliant holiday.

The beautiful beaches of Carne to the west and Porthlune to the east are a short car journey away, each with golden sands and great fun for swimming and if the waves allow, bodyboarding.
