This 1910 former Lanhydrock farmhouse in Cornwall is now a comfortable home, that spaciously sleeps 6. A small piece of peace nestled in an unspoilt Cornish valley near Wadebridge and just 8 miles from the north coast.

The space

Come and stay at this former farmhouse and taste what life should be like. Wake up when you want, to peace and solitude. The house and garden offers space and a chance to think and just be yourself, a retreat from your everyday life. Time for you to write or paint or any creative activity you feel you would like to bring to do during your stay. Time to "just be"..........
Walk from the house along country lanes when you want to stretch your legs.
There are two double bedrooms and a twin bedroom with a large bathroom including separate shower and loo upstairs. Downstairs is another shower room/loo ideal for use when returning from the beach.

We have sunk our own bore hole which supplies the house with beautiful fresh water from the underground rivers way down beneath the house. No additives, it tastes as it should - of nothing. This is regularly tested under Microbiology and the results are within the Private Water Supplies Regulations (2009) limits.
A large corner sofa & wood burning stove in the sitting room is an added joy on chillier evenings, with an oak dining table seating 6 comfortably at the opposite end of the room. Solar panels help to power the modern Eco-electric Aga in the kitchen with a large scrubbed pine table and usual small kitchen equipment, fridge freezer and storage cupboards. The washing machine and dishwasher and boiler to heat the water are in the back-kitchen near the shower-room.
When the weather allows meals can be eaten at the table and chairs on the terrace or on a picnic rug under the shade of the silver birches. Fun can be had watching the antics of the sheep in the paddock alongside.

At the start of our LEJOG cycling adventure, we were made thoroughly welcome by Caroline at her lovely home in the depths of Cornwall. We were provided with a delicious dinner as well as the perfect breakfast for a day on our bikes. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a lovely place to stay with a genuinely interested and thoughtful hostess.

After a wet and cold day it was lovely to arrive at Caroline's and being met with tea and cakes in her comfy sofa. She helped us with booking a table for dinner at a local bar and even dried our wet clothes! The room is spacious and has a beautiful view to the fields and the cows outside, and the bathroom is excellent. Breakfast was delicious and Caroline is a interesting person to talk to. We stayed for two days and will definitely stay there again if we are in the area.

Caroline kindly put my daughter and I up at very short notice and saved us from having to camp in high winds and torrential rain! We had a lovely evening meal with Caroline, her son and guests. The breakfast including duck eggs was delightful. We were made to feel comfortable and welcome during our stay. I would highly recommend a stay.

We were two couples embarking on a cycling tour of Cornwall,with a start and finish at Carolines in St Wenn. We were immediately made very welcome, with home made cakes, and Carolines "nothing is too much approach". St Wenn is exactly as described, a small village in the rolling Cornish countryside, close by to the town of Wadebridge. Facililities were great, bedrooms large and a very comfortable bed, bathroom was excellent with views over the fields, at the rear of the house. We were allowed to make use of the large and comfortable lounge. Caroline full english breakfast was a welcome start to our day. This was our first experience of airbnb, and Caroline certainly is the star of the show, sharing her knowledge of the local area. We started our stay as paying guests and finished as personal guests due to Carolines friendly and helpful persona. We would thoroughly recommend staying here. All the best Caroline, Greg, Rosanna, Paul and Jacqui

We had a lovely stay at Caroline's. The area is beautiful with a house to match. We were made very welcome with tea, cakes and good conversation. Breakfast was a splendid with homemade bread and duck eggs from the garden. We would definitely stay again.

I am the Mum of two almost grown up sons who have already flown the nest therefore I have the space and time to welcome my house guests to Cornwall where I have lived for 15 years. I am a keen walker and love to share my knowledge of the best coast paths on my Ordnance Survey maps.
These are some other simple things that bring me joy - growing my own fruit and vegetables, baking bread, my 2 Khaki Campbell Ducks who lay a daily egg each, Paddy my little Polo that had to replace my 30 year old VW camper-van that I like to escape up to the coast with my dachshund Florence for sea swims...........
