About Lower Pentire Farm House

A lakeside hideaway with a country cottage interior and an enclosed garden.

Lower Pentire Farm House is everything you could ever want from a holiday cottage, with its pretty white-washed façade, stacks of rustic charm and sweeping views. The house dates back to the 18th-century and its low-beamed ceilings, slate floors and log-burner give it a real country cottage feel. You’ll have your own enclosed garden complete with a picnic table.  Although trees obstruct the view the cottage is very close to Loe Pool.

Explore the local area by foot; the restaurants, pubs and shops of Porthleven are a pleasant two-mile walk along the sands from here. Helston town is just two miles inland. Discover its folk heritage and stroll around its bustling streets in search of a hearty pasty or a traditional pub lunch. 

Further afield, visit Goldolphin House, less than a 20-minute drive, for its acres of dramatic parkland and formal gardens. St Michael’s Mount, just a 30-minute drive to the west, is a must-see. From afar it looks like a mysterious island, but take the ferry or walk across the causeway when the tide is out, and you’ll discover its subtropical gardens and 12th-century castle.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 Acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level through to 5 Acorns at the highest level. Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose, safe and clean. Running water and a WC are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities (details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage). Bedding, linen and towels are supplied (with a few exceptions, which is again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. Generally a 1 acorn cottage does not have wifi. Examples of a 1 acorn offer include Cartref, Wales and Rosedene, Worcestershire.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high sleeps to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 acorn cottages have wifi and, similar to a 1 Acorn cottage, the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic in their offer. All 2 (and higher) Acorn cottages supply bedding, linen and towels. Examples of a 2 acorn offer include Engine Cottage, Cornwall and High Hallgarth, Cumbria.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small sized kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage. Examples of a 3 acorn cottage include the Mustard Pot Cottage, Norfolk and Rose Cottage, Isle of Wight.

4 Acorn: these cottage have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally it is likely to have added comfort extras. The ratio of bathrooms to guests will be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers as opposed to over bath showers. Examples of a 4 Acorn offer include Portland House, Dorset and Stepper View, Cornwall.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage. This is the highest offer available. The furniture is of high standard, and has real comfort for modern living. Examples of a 5 Acorn cottage include The Old Rectory, South Wales and West Gate Lodge, Yorkshire.
