Property description

The Old Farmhouse is a spacious, comfortable retreat for families and friends, and provides a real taste of country living. Dating from the 18th Century, this beautifully renovated granite farmhouse retains many of its original features and historic atmosphere. Found in the tiny hamlet of Trevurvas, this detached property sits on a peaceful country lane only 10 minutes walk to the beautiful Hendra Beach. Inside, beautiful decor creates a stylish welcome throughout the house, which is furnished with flair. Guests can relax in either the convivial open-plan living room or the cosy dining-room next door. Upstairs, the bright bedrooms enjoy views over the enclosed garden and the pretty countryside.
Outside, enjoy an al fresco lunch in the lovely, enclosed garden or explore the public footpath which leads to the nearest shops in Praa Sands (10 mins) or venture a little further to the stunning coastline nearby.

The beautiful mile long sandy beach of Hendra and Praa Sands is just a short walk down the lane, as is the spectacular coastal path. Of course there are so many other attractions within easy driving distance of Praa Sands including: Minack Theatre, a stunning out-door theatre built into the cliffs at Porthcurno. St Michaels Mount. This is truly unique; a tiny, rocky island filled with astonishing history and natural beauty, yet still a living, working community of people. Activities include: Walking. The coastal path runs the whole of the Cornish coast, so you are never far from a footpath. Fishing. You can arrange fishing trips from many of the harbours in the area, the closest being Porthleven. Of course you can always stay put and enjoy the 1 mile of beautiful soft sandy beach at Praa Sands itself, only twelve minutes walk from The Old Farmhouse.
