Tucked away in rural Cornwall, yet close to the coast, these gorgeous converted farm buildings offer not just a great location, but wonderful facilities for a super duper family holiday. Splash in the pool, get active in the sports barn and play areas, meet the farm animals or simply romp and roam around the 45 acres of countryside. Ideally situated in mid-Cornwall, you’ll be spoilt for choice on days out too.

About this place

About the owners

Judith & Kate

Listed since January 2011

The Nancarrow family have been welcoming guests to discover Poltarrow for nearly 40 years. Cornish born and bred, we purchased Poltarrow in 1982 and brought up our children here - who now work at the farm - whilst establishing the holiday business. At Poltarrow we live and breathe Family Friendly and lots of what we do is aimed at making sure that EVERY family member is happy.

Owner recommendations

  • The Eden Project is just 15 minutes away and a must see during your stay.

  • Young and young at heart train enthusiasts will love Lappa Valley.

  • For an autumn walk you can't beat Golitha Falls.

  • Grab your pots and head to Mevagissey for the best crabbing.

  • Embrace the freedom of The Lost Gardens of Heligan, again just 15 minutes from Poltarrow.

  • Take a trip to Charlestown to explore some familiar Poldark places.

  • Pack up a picnic and go for a day out on the beach: Porthpean is perfect for rock pooling, and Watergate Bay is a wave watchers paradise.

  • St Ives can be reached by train and is an art lovers dream - get hands-on at the Tate or explore the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden.
