About Porth Farm House

A large, traditional Cornish farmhouse with the Roseland peninsula on the doorstep.

A small gate entrance, ivy-covered stone walls and a front garden brimming with blossoming shrubs; this picture-perfect cottage offers an authentic and very photogenic stay. The theme continues inside too, with its wooden beam ceilings and original fireplace. 

This traditional Cornish farmhouse has room for five people and two dogs with its own private garden and BBQ. If you need more space for a family get together, it can be joined via an interconnecting door with two-bedroom, Towan Cottage. It's also close to Porth Barn and Penhaligons holiday cottages. 

Sitting in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you’ll have the Roseland Peninsula on your doorstep. Sandy Towan Beach is just a five minutes’ walk, Porthcurnick beach is a short drive and the secret coves of St Anthony Head are not far at all. For a little bit of culture and a spot of lunch, head to Portscatho for its art galleries and traditional pubs.

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 such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

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.
