About Pentire Farmhouse

An idyllic holiday spot, this restored farmhouse with sea views is perched on the Pentire headland, surrounded by craggy cliffs, blooming wildflowers, wildlife and miles of coastal footpaths.

An absolute gem of a holiday cottage, this unique Cornish farmhouse with traditional styling is a brilliant base for walkers, families or friends on a seaside break. With seals and seabirds to spot and a headland with good footpath access along with the wonderful South West Coast Path, this is one holiday you won’t forget in a hurry. 

Head down the track to the cottage and you’ll find yourself in the heart of an ancient farmstead on this breathtaking headland. Jam packed with historical character - check out the impressive fireplaces - there’s more than a nod to the past. And with sea views all around, it really does feel special. Downstairs is the kitchen/dining room and a large sitting room with a woodburner. Upstairs, the two en-suite bedrooms both have sea views and then there are two twin rooms as well, which can both convert into doubles on request. Pentire Farmhouse and it’s adjoining neighbour, Pengirt, can be booked together if you’re looking for somewhere for a larger group to stay, and the two cottages open up into one seamlessly. Outside, as well as parking for four cars, there’s your own outdoor space to enjoy, and a shared lawn to the front of the farmhouse. 

The gorgeously unspoilt Pentire headland is waiting to be discovered right from your doorstep, alive with wildlife (keep your eyes peeled for skylarks, grey seals and peregrine falcons). With miles of coastal footpaths to explore, and secluded beaches to discover, the north coast of Cornwall doesn’t disappoint. It's a 15-minute stroll along the footpath to the beach at Pentireglaze Haven, which links to Polzeath beach at low tide. Polzeath is a great spot for surfers with its atlantic waves. Or if you’re keener to tread the coastal paths, then head to Pentire Point and The Rumps where there are spectacular views towards The Mouls. 

This part of north Cornwall is full of quaint seaside villages, perfect for slowly wandering (with an ice cream or two). Head down to the higgledy-piggledy lanes to the pretty inlet of Port Quin or to the pretty jumble of white-washed cottages that make up the lively harbour of Port Isaac just over Pentire headland to the north. Or go south towards Rock and jump on the ferry to the bustling foodie hotspot of Padstow. And of course, if you’re here for the beaches you won’t be disappointed either. Discover Tintagel Post Office or the stunning Lanhydrock Estate, the two nearest National Trust places.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet 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 are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

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 kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
