Barn in Roseland Peninsula, Cornwall, England - Quiet Rural Location, Within Easy Walking Distance Of The Beach, Beautifully Furnished
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 Veryan
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

Away from crowds
Fantastic location in a real countryside, great views over the hills around, farms, pastures. Just a short stroll down to the seaside. Great walking paths along the shore and inland. Very comfortable cottage with everything you may need, including patio with barbecue and your own lawn!
Mid term break in Feb
This really was a home from home! The barn was clean, warm and had everything we could have thought of. Justine had left us some milk and goodies - which we really appreciated after a long, cold and wet journey! We stayed in February amid storms and floods - but it was a very relaxing place to stay with friendly helpful owners. I'd love to come back in summer!
Stay at Veryan
A wonderful property in a nice quiet position. Nice and clean and modern and everything you could possibly need in the property. With use of a cot and high-chair was very helpful and saved transporting ours down. Many thanks for the basket of goodies upon arrival, they went down a treat. Only downside was the weather so will definitely be returning at some point in the summer months.
wonderful place to stay
I was there with a friend and the welcome we had was outstanding, we loved the flowers in the house. Well come biscuits and tea, with milk and butter in the fridge and not to forget our lovely bottle of wine. The house was nice and warm and very comfortable.
The barn is a lovely, very well equipped little property set in a beautiful rural location. The property was very comfortable and the attention to detail excellent. There was everything that we needed to hand for our stay, and the basket of goodies left for us were by far the best selection, we were very spoilt. We had a fantastic stay at the Barn and it was the perfect location for exploring the area. We will return .
A very comfortable barn and very well equipped .
A great place to stay, peaceful but within easy access of a beach and the coastal path.

Portholland comprises two small hamlets (East and West), each with a cove which at low tide are joined by a large expanse of golden sand.
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.
