Property Description

"Character cottages in a countryside setting, ideal for an activity-filled family holiday.."

In glorious Cornish countryside on the edge of the pretty village of Tresmeer, just 6 miles from Launceston, the ancient capital of Cornwall, and 10 miles from the stunning North Cornish Coast, Higher Churchtown Farm offers the ideal holiday location for friends and family to escape and unwind or as a wedding venue as the owners have been granted a licence to conduct weddings on site.
Set beside the historic village church and with glorious views reaching to Dartmoor, these four delightful converted barns are very spacious and beautifully presented with oak furniture, underfloor heating on the ground floors and heated towel rails in most of the bathrooms. They retain much of their original charm with vaulted ceilings, exposed stone walls and beams. Kettle’s On is a detached single-storey barn with its own rear garden; each of the others has its own small patio and all enjoy shared use of a large garden area with 18ft circular above-ground swimming pool (summer only) and an additional ½-acre games field which provides a great place for children to play. For amusement indoors, a selection of reading material is also provided, together with games, puzzles, DVDs and a 42in television. The largest of the barns also has its own games room with pool table, darts and board games. A local artist displays her work in the barns of scenes around Cornwall, which can be purchased and taken home as a memento. Lambing also takes place on the farm during the first few months of the year up to the beginning of April.
Whether surfing, walking the coastal path, playing golf, fishing or simply relaxing this stunning location has something for everyone. Riding, cycling and walking trails are in abundance including a lovely riverside walk from the barns across the owners’ farmland. This really is a superb holiday choice for friends, families or when booked as a whole for a celebration gathering. Launceston has a good selection of local shops, town amenities, and restaurants.
Family attractions include Trethorne Leisure Park and Golf Club, Harlequins Bude, Crealy Adventure Park, Newquay Zoo and the Blue Reef Aquarium. Ideally situated to visit the North Cornwall coastal resorts of Tintagel, Boscastle, Port Isaac and Padstow. For a great day out, enjoy the famous Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Shop 440 yards, pub and restaurant 4 miles.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. This was a lovely property which was well maintained on a working farm with the owners living next door. They were wonderful people who made you feel very welcome and what was a fantastic surprise was the flowers, large bowl of fruit, scones, jam, cream and milk that were waiting for us. June 2012.
  2. Fantastic property well worth staying at and will return sometime. June 2012.
  3. The property was very comfortable, it helped that towels were provided and the hosts were fantastic with fresh flowers, biscuits, scones, jam and even some milk in the fridge!! As for the children, inside DVDs, games and books and perfect outside having a climbing frame. A shame the weather was not nice enough for us to use the pool. Thank you for a lovely stay. June 2011.
  4. The property was lovely and novel (bedrooms downstairs, open-plan upstairs) and we were made to feel very welcome by the owners. They also offered the use of beach equipment, wet suits, wind breakers etc. May 2011.
  5. The owners were very welcoming, we had scones, cream and jam on arrival plus a large bowl of fruit and fresh flowers. The accommodation was of a very high standard with lots for children to do. The owners took the children to feed the lambs and chickens and on ride on a tractor round the farm. The nearest town is Launceston which is 7 miles away but some of the other holiday makers had arranged for ASDA to deliver groceries and if we went again we would also do that. May 2011.
  6. Beautifully clean, family friendly property. The owners were so kind and welcoming. A great holiday. Feb 2011.
  7. The property was amazing and so were the owners. We were made to feel very welcome and greeted with scones, cream and jam. There was even a Christmas tree. The cottage was to a really high standard and was equipped with everything you could want, and more. Dec 2010.
  8. Clean, cosy, all modern appliances, just a wonderful place! Aug 2010.

  11. First class, well presented, 5 star. I could not fault a single thing about this accommodation it was fantastic. July 2010.
