Bluebell Down Farm Morvah

£371 - £890 per week

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.

Tom Bawcock's Eve, Mousehole

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. 

Today, a festival takes place each year to celebrate Tom Bawcock's bravery. During the festival, Star Gazey pies are eaten in memory of this famous event.

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

Jul 2020

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.

Feb 2020

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

Jan 2020

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!

Dec 2019

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!

Nov 2019

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.

Sep 2019

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.

Sep 2019

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.
