About the property

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

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

Notes on accommodation: Ventonveth Barn is a wonderful holiday location for those wanting a quiet and relaxing holiday. It is ideal for couples on a romantic break or those with children wanting a cove with sand and rock pools on the doorstep. Being situated in such a beautiful part on the Rosaland Peninsula it is the perfect getaway. Due to it being a farm setting with stock and working dogs, we prefer no pets. Outside: The farm is accessed by an unmade farm lane. The barn lies in the heart of the steading and the owner's gardens but has its own private garden. There is a paved terrace with table and chairs and a lawned area surrounded by beds with a rotary dryer. The gardens are south facing and are exceedingly sunny and look across the rolling Cornish countryside. Utility Room: Separate utility/washing room in nearby dairy with washing machine, small freezer and rail to hang wetsuits. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: High quality bed linen and bedding, - fresh linen provided for stays of more than one week. Bath towels provided but please bring your own beach towels.

Very nicely laid out and well-equipped cottage with lovely rural view

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Highly recommended!
