About The Old Farmhouse

A spacious Cornish cottage just a 10-minute stroll to the sandy beach of Pentireglaze.

If you’re after a rural getaway with a glimpse of the sea, this large farmhouse could be your perfect stay. It sits high on a hill overlooking the Pentire Headland and the north Cornwall coast. 

Inside, you’ll find three spacious bedrooms boasting views of the surrounding countryside, a sitting room with an open fire, a large kitchen area and a separate dining room. It can also be opened up on the ground floor to join neighbouring cottage, Overhaven, for larger families or groups. 

From here, you’ll be able to stroll 10 minutes down the bridleway to the beach at Pentireglaze Haven, which links with Polzeath surf beach at low tide. In the cottage’s welcome rucksack, you’ll find lots of walking trails that will help you make the most of North Cornwall’s beautiful landscapes. Hike through carpets of wildflower along the headlands, keeping your eyes peeled for grey seals and peregrine falcons that grace this stretch of coastline.

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.
