Bluebell Down Farm is tucked away 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.

The tradition of Tom Bawcock comes from the feast or famine lifestyle of Cornwall. The story goes that it was just before Christmas; there had been no fish for weeks, the boats couldn’t get out into the raging storm, the village was starving. One man, Tom Bawcock, dared to take his boat out of the harbour’s safety. He returned with enough fish to make fish pie for the whole village.
