Bluebell Down Farm

£393 - £966 per week
Book

Bluebell Down Farm is tucked away on a working farm in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty within the north Penwith Peninsula. The area is famed for its scenic beauty with a mosaic of stone walled fields between the sea and the back drop of higher moorland. Surrounded by ancient settlements and a nature reserve, this 400 year old farmhouse offers a true taste of rural life with all the comforts of home. Sleeping four, with two blissful bedrooms either end of the cottage, each having their own bathroom, you can slide out of bed, sneak upstairs to brew a pot of coffee to watch the dawn sun come up over the delightful countryside and down to the sea beyond.

Bluebell Down Farm was originally a cow barn and dates back to the early 1600’s. Its three and a half acre fields now form part of a working farm, backing on to the bluebell and heather strewn Chûn Downs and overlooking the open sea. A short walk up the hill will take you to a Neolithic burial site, Chûn Quoit, thought to have been built in about 2,400 BC. One of the best preserved Quoits in Western Cornwall, it comprises a closed chamber with a mushroom shaped capstone, supported by four huge slabs of granite. At the top of the hill is Chûn Castle, a circular iron age hill fort. A perfect spot for a picnic, you can see the sea on three sides from here. Bluebell Down Farm is positioned close to The Shepherd Hut at Bluebell Down Farm, so a great way to bring more of the family is by booking both properties.

October 2020

Just spent a week at Bluebell Down Farm at the end of October - myself, my wife and out flat-coated retriever Fiver Lovely location, tucked away from it all but close enough to all the delights West Cornwall has to offer. Cottage very comfortable and well furnished. Weather very kind to us. Sea and the waves were amazing - storm/wave watching in Sennen and Portcurno, tackling the waves at Praa, finding our way to the secret beach near the cottage and marvelling at the location/atmosphere at the Minack Theatre were a few of our daily adventures. Took advantage of the log burner most evenings making the cottage warm and cosy especially welcome after our daily battering from the waves. Most people say 'we hope to go back' but we can say 'we will be going back' as we've booked for 2021 already!

Quiet and secluded location in the beautiful countryside of Cornwall. Fantastic walks all around the property too. Cottage was spacious with a really cosy feel to it. Loved the week we spent there

Bluebell Down Farm is in a great location ideal for coastal walks either from the doorstep or just a short drive. Penzance was approximately 15 minutes drive away and a lovely coastal drive took you to St. Ives in around half an hour. The farmhouse offers cozy, rustic and very comfortable accommodation with good facilities. During the current Covid situation we felt very relaxed and comfortable would definitely like to return.

Lovely isolated cottage, ideal if you want to really get away from it all. The drive is very bumpy - we had a 4X4 but even so it was a bit precarious! Nearest shop is the Spar at Pendeen which also, helpfully, sells logs and kindling. Be sure to make the effort to walk up (15 mins) to Carne Castle and the burial chamber behind the cottage - very impressive. A longer (40 mins) walk (cross country footpath by the farm) takes you to the almost deserted, and stunning beach below Morvah (Penberth Cove). Alternatively park at Pendeen Lighthouse or the farm car park for a shorter walk). Good and very safe restaurant at Gurnard’s Head. (Need to book)

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments. We are very pleased to read that you had a wonderful holiday at Bluebell Down Farm and the property is ideal for getting away from it all. As you have rightly said, the drive is very bumpy due to it being a narrow, unmade track so we would ask that guests take care when making their way up to the property. The property is surrounded by so many great places to visit, by car and by foot and we hope that the track would not stop you from coming back to Bluebell Down Farm. Thank you again for your review. Lucy, Customer Services

A lovely setting with beautiful views. Comfy beds and a homely feel. A nice big kitchen with all the mod cons you would need. A central location means all the beaches and main tourist attractions are within a short driving distance. Highly recommended.

Remote location with superb views. The property was very clean. We would definitely return.

We had a lovely short break in February and found the cottage very comfortable and perfect for our needs. It is very private and quiet and ideal for a relaxing break with lots of books, games and DVDs to borrow. Even the dogs are catered for. The bedrooms are lovely and the beds extremely comfortable. We will definitely be back.

Had a fantastic time celebrating the new year, great location, beautiful cottage .

Just returned from a long weekend at Bluebell Down Farm with our little boy (2) and two dogs. Such a lovely cottage in a great location & very private. The cottage was a perfect size and would work really well for two couples. The garden was a great size for the dogs too! It is down a long lane but we knew that from the description- which was very accurate. Good WiFi but no phone signal which was perfect for a quiet time away from work! Great walks around the area and a short drive from some amazing beaches and views! Overall, we were really happy with the property and are planning to return next year. Also a lovely added detail with the Christmas decorations! Very cosy and comfortable, thank you!

We absolutely loved our stay at Bluebell Down Farm. The location was perfect (only 15 mins to St Ives) and the views from the cottage were stunning. The open fire was lovely and although it was cold outside, this cottage was so cosy. Lots of games and lovely touches throughout the cottage too. We are already planning our trip back here next year!

We had a wonderful stay at Bluebell Down Farm Cottage. The property has been beautifully renovated, is well equipped and provides an excellent base for exploring this part of Cornwall. The views are amazing and it is very peaceful. I would very much recommend this property as a holiday let. It is worth noting that the road/track to the property is currently rather bumpy and there is also a shepherd's hut in front of the building which is also available for rental.

Had a pleasant short break in this quirky cottage in early September with good weather, so were able to enjoy views and walks in fields. A good bolt hole for a few days, may not be so enjoyable if weather isn't good.

We (family of 4 plus our dog) stayed here during August. We were delighted with the cottage and found it to be a charming and cosy cottage with all the contemporary comforts. Idyllic location set back from the stunning coastal road. We would definitely recommend and are likely to stay here again when we revisit the area.
