Porth Farm House


Roseland, Cornwall

+ Add to favourites


This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

Part of the original farmhouse, the kind of beautifully proportioned, traditional Cornish farmhouse that you might find in the pages of a book, this comfortable cottage is full of character, with its ivy-covered walls and walled front garden. It has a private garden at the rear of the cottage perfect for games and lounging alike. Porth Farm House sleeps up to five, but can be combined with the adjoining Towan Cottage to accommodate a larger party of up to eight adults. The cottage Nearby is the slightly larger property Porth Barn and a little further down a narrow track Penhaligon's provides a cosy retreat for two.

The delights of Towan Beach are just five minutes walk from the cottage and a perfect place to relax. Children will love exploring the rock pools at nearby Porthcurnick beach at low tide. If it’s an old fashioned beach holiday that you are after then Porth is the spot.

The combination of cliffs, creeks, estuaries, headlands, woods and beaches linked by many miles of footpath, gives a fantastic variety of walking routes. Pick your route to suit your mood, as well as the weather! For a slower pace sit back and enjoy the spectacular views from nearby St Anthony Head and everything the Roseland peninsula has to offer.

Close by is the village of Portscatho; during the 18th and 19th Centuries it was an ideal base for the pilchard fleets, it’s still a fishing port today but on a much smaller scale. Here you will find several shops, restaurants and pubs along with art galleries.

Cornwall may be steeped in Celtic history yet it also offers the uncomplicated joy of a day spent by the sea. From the picture-box charms of the villages and towns of St Ives, Polzeath and Port Isaac to the raw natural beauty of the coast, one trip to this part of the world is often just the start of many more. Remember to pack some good walking boots and you will be set for life!

    Clean and comfortable cottage

    Fabulous location, great access to the beach and local walks. Cottage clean and comfortable. The workmen converting the cottage next door were considerate and did not affect our enjoyment.

    The one we like best!

    Porth Farm House is, out of the seventeen NT cottages we have stayed at so far, the one we and our friends and dog like best !! We have booked to stay there again in November this year and will likely stay there again in March 2017.

    Excellent location

    The location of the cottage was excellent - to be able to cross the lane then walk down a short track to the beautiful small beach and coast path was perfect, especially as we have a dog, but even without a dog I would have walked here a lot. The standard of accommodation and cleanliness was excellent, very comfortable and welcoming, and you felt as though you could relax here.

    Exceptionally clean

    The location of the property made this stay enjoyable. The quality of the fixtures and fittings and the exceptional cleanliness of the property. A very well done to those who turned out the property. I wish there were more properties to take a small single dog.
