Lower Penhallow Farm lies on the Roseland Peninsula, just a mile from Pendower Beach on the south west coast of Cornwall. It is a working farm of 72 acres in rolling countryside, with green fields and lush hedgerows round about it. The farm produces barley and breed Ruby Devon cattle, most of which can be seen from our farm trail.
The four star self catering accommodation consists of two cottages and garden, which offer the visitor a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. Each self catering cottage is well equipped and offers free wireless broadband internet access and a woodburning stove which also appeal to couples and families looking for a main holiday or a cosy winter break or Christmas or New Year escape on the Roseland Peninsula.
The farm and self-catering cottage accommodation are centrally located making it a convenient base for exploring the Roseland Peninsula and other parts of Cornwall and it's attractions including its many beautiful castles, gardens and the world famous Eden Project. Visitors have been coming here for fifteen years for self catering holidays, and many return to enjoy the peace and quiet of the Cornish Countryside, located roughly half way between Land's End and the Devon border. Some of our overseas visitors come to experience an Cornish farm holiday.
The idylic Roseland Peninsula is an excellent location for a peaceful holiday in Cornwall. There are miles of superb sandy beaches with Pendower and Carne being our nearest within walking distance (1mile).

There is a variety of beautiful gardens and historic buildings just a stones throw away, including the famous waterside St Just in Roseland Church with it's sub-tropical gardens, Caerhays Estate, Tregothnan Estate and Trelissick Gardens just over the King Harry Ferry, or the smaller Poppy Cottage Garden at Ruan High Lanes or Lamorran House Gardens at St Mawes.
