About The Stable at Markwell Farm

Comfy and cosy, The Stable is a welcoming retreat for two guests in a four-poster bedroom (babies in arms can be accepted but unfortunately not toddlers or children due to steep stairs). The smallest of all four holiday homes at Markwell Farm, The Stable is perfect for couples looking for a relaxing holiday in Cornwall.

Markwell Farm is a great base for exploring Cornwall and South Devon with an abundance of attractions within easy reach for day trips out. The working farm is extensive with four hundred lush rolling acres which are home to cows, sheep and llamas, along with the resident dogs and coats. Located close to the village of Landrake in South East Cornwall, the cottages sit within attractive converted stone barns which date back to the 18th Century and provide a true taste of country life.

Spend your days soaking up the tranquility, enjoying the glorious views, meeting the animals and exploring the tracks around the farm. The flower-filled country lanes in the warmer months are a joy to cycle; or get out and about visiting the areas many attractions.

For lazy days by the sea, the popular seaside town of Looe with its sandy beach is within easy reach, as is the quaint harbour town of Polperro and slightly further Fowey, home of Daphne Du Maurier. Spend the day at Whitsand Bay (with three miles of golden sand, it never feels crowded!) or take the dog for a run at Downderry (dog-friendly all year round). The South West Coastal Path is also easily accessible with miles of wonderful walking and seascapes to enjoy enroute.

Head inland to Bodmin Moor, explore the Tamar Valley AONB or visit Dartmoor National Park with its pretty little villages with pubs for a long lazy lunch and miles of opportunities for walkers, horse riding and mountain bikers. The National Trust properties of Anthony House, Cothele, Saltram House and Lanhydrock House are also within easy reach, as is the magical romantic Lost Gardens of Heligan and The Eden Project - a world class attraction and full-day of entertainment.

Whether you choose to stay put and relax at Markwell Farm or get out and about exploring, The Stable is a comfy base to return home to of an evening.
