The Water Mill - (2 Bedrooms)
East Trenean Farm
About Ian Farr
Brenda and I moved to East Trenean Farm in February 2014. We met each other over 30 years ago when studying at Plymouth Polytechnic and fell in love with the area. Now, having spent too long as city dwellers, we have returned to the West Country to run East Trenean Farm. We live in the main farm house and let the three 18th century, grade II listed stone barns and the recently converted Linhay. Each barn has it's own private garden, but also access to the farm's 10 acres of grounds. The Farm's previous owners converted the three larger barns and we have converted the one remaining derelict barn into a comfortable one bedroom cottage - The Linhay. This newly converted barn has stunning views from the lounge and bedroom over the gardens and down the valley. Please take a look at our web-site for details. We look forward to welcoming you to our lovely hideaway in the Cornish countryside.
Ian Farr purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Ian Farr chose Morval
We love this part of the country because of the great coastal paths and the proximity to wonderful sailing grounds along the south coast of Devon and Cornwall. The barns have been converted in recent years and therefore benefit from the latest standards in terms of insulation, wiring and plumbing ! They are not draughty or damp. They have been decorated with a clean modern look, whilst retaining much of the character of the original some buildings. The views to the south are wonderful and we have a distant glimpse of the sea.
What makes this Cottage unique
It is wonderfully peaceful at East Trenean Farm, close to the coast, but not in the hustle and bustle of town. The accommodation has been decorated and equipped to a luxurious standard, with natural stone walls, oak floors, original beams exposed and comfortable beds and sofas. Our water is from our own bore-hole, so lovely soft spring water on tap. Free range eggs available from our hens (subject to their ongoing co-operation). WiFi in each barn, so stay in touch while away from it all (if you have to). Log burning stoves in each barn other than the Linhay. All have central heating. Relax in our 8 person hot tub with views over the farm and down the valley to the sea. Entertain the children on the swings or the trampoline.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Really enjoyable Easter break
Very well equipped and beautifully restored cottage in th e old water mill. Brenda and Ian are lovely hosts. Brenda‘s ginger cake and wholeness loaf were delicious. We also enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub watching the spring lambs in the fields.
Excellent. The main wall is definitely the wow factor on first entrance.
We stayed in the Water Mill. It was comfortable, clean and convenient for what we needed. The welcome basket was a lovely addition and much appreciated. My son thought it was a slight shame we weren’t there in the winter as he thought it would have been cosy with the wood burner alight.
Nice decor and well equipped for a holiday stay. We would definitely stay again.
EXCELLLENT IN EVERY WAY!
How fortunate we were to find a stay at this beautiful property! The converted barn was so beautifully decorated, comfortable and had everything we needed. A well equipped kitchen, comfortable living space and 2 lovely bedrooms, what a fantastic place!
We were welcomed with a basket filled with homemade goodies, breads, eggs from their chickens and local beverages. Absolutely wonderful, and enjoyed the hot tub with its views. We loved the location, easy to visit neighboring little sea side villages and the beautiful National Trust property of Lanhydrock, not to be missed.
How I wish we could have stayed a week! If you want an excellent Vacation rental be sure to book this lovely property!
Beautiful property, in a charming setting.
The Watermill is a beautiful period property, just right for getting away on a quiet, relaxing break. The property is fitted with everything you could need, so our stay was very comfortable. The owners had kindly left us a wonderful 'Welcome pack', which was very much appreciated after a long journey. There is plenty to see and do for all ages within the vicinity, but the accommodation was also equipped with some books and games, as well as TV and DVD player, useful in the evenings & wet days. We all had a really enjoyable stay and would certainly stay again. Many thanks.
Lovely property in a beautiful setting
We had a lovely 3 nights in this very comfortable character property. Lots of interesting features in this converted water mill. Beds were comfortable, shower was perfect and everything we needed was provided. The welcome basket, which included delicious home made bread and ginger cake and fresh eggs, was much appreciated. The views from the main house's garden are wonderful. We'll definitely try to return one day.
An exceptional stay
Had an absolutely wonderful time at The watermill. Stayed with husband, baby, 2 year old and niece. The cottage was equipped with everything you could possibly need- truley a home away from home! Wonderful location, beautiful surroundings.
Luxurious, clean and relaxing. Would definitely recommend to friends and family and return again.
Many thanks for the great review. Glad to hear that you had a great time whilst here and we would love to see you again in the future.
