Stylish Cottage with Breathtaking Views - ideal for Families or Couples
About Karen Briggs
My family & I moved here in 2007 to pursue our dream and we know that you will be as pleased with your stay here as we have always been :o)) Our cosy old farm nestles in the hillside, complete with its own natural spring water supply. We have a fantastic location between the stunning rugged coastline of North Cornwall and Bodmin Moor - an area of outstanding natural beauty. Steppes Farm, in parts, dates back to medieval times. The main farmhouse was a lot smaller then, with a barn and a dairy behind it. These were merged with the farmhouse around the 1970s.
Karen Briggs purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Karen Briggs chose Cornwall
Steppes Farm has all the atmosphere and tradition you could ever hope for. With the added plus of hot tub and sauna :o)))) We are set in 20 acres and surrounded by an area of outstanding natural beauty. The farmhouse and our 3 luxuriously furnished barn conversions nestle into the countryside, right on the edge of wild and romantic Bodmin Moor - just five miles from the breathtaking Cornish coast. You will find our lovely accommodation in North Cornwall near the towns of Tintagel, Camelford and Boscastle. Port Isaac, Polzeath, Rock and all the best beaches are within easy reach. Poldark, King Arthur, Daphne du Maurier, Agatha Christie, Rosamunde Pilcher - all inspired by the beautiful coastline and countryside on our doorstep. Let’s not forget Fisherman's Friends & Doc Martin, both filmed at Port Isaac.

Beautiful Cornish Cottage
We had a wonderful time here in this gorgeous cottage. Absolutely beautiful with only the sounds of geese and ducks taking a stroll past the kitchen window. At night, with the absence of usual street lights, on a clear night the sky was littered with twinkling stars - perfect !
Super friendly owners, amazing house and stunning location
When you are driving towards the house, you realize what an amazing location it is, Karen and Adrian the owners have made an incredible job to make you feel like home. The house we stayed the goose was lovely, super clean and the views were simply stunning. All houses are in a farm surrounded by beautiful landscapes and animals perfect situation to disconnect during your stay, other commodities such as the sauna and hot tub will make your stay even more pleasant. There is a lot of things to do nearby and the owners make a great job to let you know about it, but you will struggle to leave the house because of how comfortable you will feel in it. If you are looking for spend some time in Cornwall i will definitely recommend this place, you will not regret it!
Tranquil Spot, lovely part of the world
We stayed for a short break in late October and had a lovely relaxing stay in Mother Goose cottage. Great facilities, very helpful staff in Adrian/ Karen, brilliant area. Lovely views from the kitchen windows.. Our daughter loved the geese, chickens and ducks waddling around the property, and had a great horse riding lesson in the arena, we also loved the hottub, looking at the stars in the clear night sky, padstow, port isaac, newquay, eden project, tintagel were the great places we visited during our break.
We noticed what a great time your daughter had with all her "friends". She did very well indeed for her very first riding lesson. Take care all, Karen
Goose Cottage was a real gem - beautiful house and location
Really lovely hosts, helpful without being intrusive. A beautiful house and garden in a good location. We use self catering properties a lot due to the fact that one of our children has serious food allergies so eating out can be tricky. I have to say this was the best equipped place we have used and was, without doubt, the cleaniest - absolutely spotless! Would definately recommend.
You were excellent guests who were a pleasure to have. You all took great care of Mother Goose Cottage and left 'Goose' spic and span as we knew you would. Thank you for your wonderful review, take care and we hope to see you again - Karen xx
Wir haben unseren Urlaub (knapp 2 Wochen) auf der Steppes Farm verbracht.
Die Farm ist ein Traum!!! Auf einem riesigen Grundstück befinden sich neben dem Farmhaus, in dem die Besitzer, Karen und Adrian wohnen, die 3 angebotenen Ferienunterkünfte.Wir haben unseren Urlaub im "Goose Cottage" verbracht. Die Unterkunft ist mit 2 Schlafzimmern großzügig, sehr sauber, toll eingerichtet und super ruhig gelegen.
Es gibt Gänse, Enten, Hühner, 2 Hunde, einen Kater und 2 Pferde. Und alle wuseln in einem friedlichen miteinander irgendwie überall auf dem riesigen Grundstück herum. Einfach toll!!!
Die Vermieter Karen und Adrian sind sehr nett und für jede Frage, Infomation usw. immer offen und hilfsbereit.
Herzlichen Dank für die Tipps und Wetterinformationen besonders an Adrian. :-) :-) :-)
Wir würden uns freuen, wenn wir unserem nächsten Englandaufenthalt wieder im "Goose Cottage" verbringen könnten.
