Great Family Getaway
Really enjoyed this spacious property. For the whole family (Ages 5 to 93) !! Loved the character of this house and the memories that could easily be made :)
The Old Farmhouse
Great place to stay for a Cornwall vacation. We had 11 people in our group, and there was plenty of room. The house is centrally located to all Cornwall has to offer. We had a fantastic vacation and made life long memories at “The Old Farmhouse”!
Amazing place to stay
We loved every bit of the Old Farmhouse and can't wait to stay again!
Our family (7 adults and a baby) really enjoyed our stay. The farmhouse was in a good location up a quiet lane and ideally situated to visit many places. It was spacious and well equipped with plenty of crockery, kitchen utensils etc. However providing our own linen and towels is not what we would expect. My view of the farmhouse is that it is a beautiful family home and obviously used in the past by a big family. I must say though it was rather shabby in places and tired. It needs decorating and a thorough clean with replacement of quite a lot of things, i.e. carpets to toilet seats! The cooker was well in need of replacing and I did see a new one in the garage and it would have been nice to have that in place during our visit. The downstairs toilet was not up to an acceptable standard and the downstairs shower very dated. It seems that the property hasn’t been painted for a long time and although there were new window frames they were dirty and need of a good clean. If quite a bit of maintenance was done on this property to get it up to a better standard, then I would certainly rate it highly.
A real home from home
A lovely place for 3 generations of the same family to stay.
The garage/annexe games room was a real bonus as the 3 children of the group spent every spare minute in there
The Old Farmhouse has been in the Marsh family since 1996. Most of this time it has been a family holiday home catering at times for up to 20 people! It is still owned by Fred and Brenda Marsh - our parents, both (supposedly) retired now and in their 80's. Fred was originally in telecom electronics and did his National Service in the Royal Navy based at RNAS Culdrose in Cornwall - that's his ship you can see in the picture in the dining room! Day to day running and the taking of bookings is now done by their children (us). Home for Fred and Brenda is in Hertfordshire, after 50 years of living in North London.
Owner purchased this Farmhouse in 1996
Why Owner chose Saint Enoder
Family holidays in the 70s and 80s were taken in Cornwall but always under canvas! Fortunately the younger generation rebelled and 'forced' Mum and Dad to invest in bricks and mortar - hence the Old Farmhouse. The place has been treated as a real home from home over the years with four generations of our family there at once, on some occasions - there are some family pictures and a lot of memories around the place. The beaches and the places we visit during our time spent there now are the same as when we were kids - they still hold the same fascination.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
This is a excellent chill out house - family dining, playing cards, American table tennis and dozing in front of the real fire. This is usually because during the day we are hiking along the coastal paths, playing cricket on the beach or body-boarding in the surf. It's good to then cook a nice dinner and sink a few glasses of wine, as there is enough crockery, cooker space and cutlery to feed all your guests! Finally when we are too tired to cook we get pasties from the world famous Chough Bakery at Padstow or grab a meal at the local Port and Starboard fish and chip restaurant - fantastic quality. Close second is the Merrymoor Inn at Mawgan Porth - don't be put off by the outside the food is very good.
