This impressive property is finished to an extremely high standard and is designed to meet the expectations of the most discerning holidaymaker. Oak wood flooring throughout the main reception areas, a suspended woodburning stove and bespoke double front door are just a few of the many outstanding highlights that Farmlands has to offer. Lovely views across the rolling countryside and out towards the sea can be enjoyed thanks to the large windows and french doors.  Porthcothan Bay is just a 10 minute walk down the road and is easily accessed by using the public footpath at the bottom of the lane which takes you nearly all the way to the beach in safety.  Porthcothan Bay is a lovely sandy beach backed with sand dunes. For keen walkers Farmlands is within easy reach of coastal footpaths which to the south will take you to the National Trust headland and the famous Bedruthan Steps, and to the north to Trevose Head and Padstow beyond, providing you with some of the most spectacular views around. Whatever activities you pursue, Farmlands will be a pleasure to come back to at the end of a busy day - in the summer months a relaxing evening in the garden or for those cooler evenings cosying up in front of the woodburning stove!

Porthcothan Bay is another of those locations which is just waiting to be discovered and explored. Within easy reach of Padstow and St Merryn, and a short drive up the coast road from Newquay and Mawgan Porth, the sheltered, sandy bay at Porthcothan is another of the many family-friendly beaches that can be enjoyed along this part of the coastline. It is also dog-friendly all year round, and boasts picturesque cliff walks and outstanding scenery. The area around Porthcothan is also home to a wide variety of sea birds, and the cliffs are often grazed by ponies and sheep, which helps with conservation of local plant life. The nearby village of St Merryn and the town of Padstow offer an excellent choice of pubs and restaurants, in addition to the local pub, the Tredrea Inn, which hosts live bands and also has a beer garden where you can sip your drink while admiring the superb views over the bay. Porthcothan Bay is also close to the village of St Eval, where anyone, whatever your age, can have loads of fun on the Karting Circuit, and when you're done, you can visit nearby Kernow Chocolate where you will find a wide range of yummy chocolate treats!
