BFB's Overview

The Hayloft is a newly converted 'barn style' conversion, clad in larch with high ceilings and envy-inducing views over rolling countryside. The accommodation is situated on the first floor and approached via an external hardwood staircase. The loft-style open plan living space is flooded with light from the large Velux windows and double doors with Juliette balcony that brings the beautiful scenery into the lounge. The high ceilings give it a spacious and airy feel, whilst the oak floors with underfloor heating, granite worktops and Bosch appliances in the well-equipped kitchen, leather sofa as and the latest home entertainment including flatscreen HD TV's, iPod docks and Wi Fi add a dose of luxury too
.

Owners Kate and Kevin Thomas moved to the 9-acre small holding in 2010 with their three young boys hoping to swap the rat race for the Cornish good life, complete with free range chickens and bristly Berkshire pigs. The transformation of the Hayloft's neighbour 'The Old Dairy' was completed in 2012 and, as parents themselves, the couple have kitted out both cottages with toys and equipment to make it particularly family and baby friendly. Not to mention the added bonus of the farmyard friends that always prove the biggest hit with mini guests!


The long list of baby essentials (see Fast Facts) provided makes light work of the packing, as does the fact that a selection of toys, books, games and family DVDs, are available. There's also a meadow for children to burn off energy with all the outdoor games, footballs, Little Tikes slide and car, or play in the sand pit or summer house. Children can help the owners feed the animals and collect fresh eggs for breakfast and buckets, spades, crab lines and nets are provided for busy days on the beach. Besides the eggs, parents can buy sausages from the owners and a Cornish Cream Tea is a tasty treat in the welcome pack.



Accommodation Overview:

The Hayloft sleeps up to 4, plus a baby in cot. The master bedroom hasa kingsize bed, HD TV, iPod dock and space for a cot. The other bedroom boasts a zip'n'link bed that can be set up as a super king-sized double or twin 2ft 6 beds. The family bathroom is luxurious with sink, WC, shower and large double-ended bath.

The open plan living space houses a kitchen area complete with granite worktops, Bosh appliances and washer dryer. The dining area seats four plus a highchair (provided) and the lounge boasts a HD TV with DVD player, a small hi-fi with iPod dock, and two leather sofas for snuggling up on in front of the romantic log burner.

Outside, there is plenty of space to park, and a meadow for playing and running about in. A Juliette balcony (double doors from the lounge with exterior safety barrier) brings the outside into the lounge on warm days.

Location Information

The Hayloft is located in the quiet, rural setting of Godolphin Cross in South West Cornwall, between the fishing village of Porthleven and the market town of Helston.

The grounds of the owners 9-acre small holding border the National Trust's Godolphin Estate, as featured in Caroline Quenton's Cornwall where families can enjoy lovely woodland walks from the cottage front door and in Spring, bluebells blanket the woods in a heady mass of blue. The cottage also nestles at the base of Godolphin Hill and families who climb the 162 metres to the summit can look across the landscape of Cornwall's mining heritage, right over to the north coast or south to the Lizard Peninsula.

There are two farm shops within a couple of miles of Godolphin Cross and a good range of shops, pubs, restaurants and cafes in Porthleven (4 miles). There’s a supermarket which stocks local produce as well as all the essentials, plus Porthleven boasts a fishmongers, an award-winning Cornish pasty bakery and quayside shop selling the juiciest, fresh caught crab, all ready to eat.

A long stretch of sandy beach runs from Porthleven towards the Lizard and the fantastic Praa Sands is also close by. The North coast is also just a short drive away, to discover more fabulous beaches like Carbis Bay and Gwithian Sands but also to visit the bustling, arty town of St Ives, home to Cornwall's Tate gallery.

If it isn't quite the weather for a day on the beach, Cornwall's Eden Project is a must and the owners three boys recommend a visit to The National Maritime Museum in Falmouth and Porthcurno Telegraph Museum. Other local family attractions include Gweek Seal Sanctuary, Flambards theme park and Paradise Park.

St Michael's Mount makes a unique day out, crossing the causeway from Marazion at low tide and while the most southerly tip of England is within striking distance, Lands End is definitely one to tick off the list. Mousehole is a typically cute Cornish fishing village and home of Stargazey Pie from the fisherman's tale, while children will love a trip to Roskilly's on the Lizard, to sample the famous ice cream, scrummy sundaes and clotted cream fudge, or make their own milkshakes and see the cows being milked.

Nearest Medical Services: There are both doctor surgeries and a hospital (with minor injuries department) in Helston (10 minutes away).

Who owns this place?

We moved to Cornwall as a family in October 2010 with the intention of setting up our own holiday letting business and to have our own Cornish escape from our previous lifestyle.

We are Kate and Kevin Thomas and have 3 young boys who love the freedom of the great outdoors.

Little Rosewarne is a small holding of some 10 acres and in the past has had its own dairy herd. We started to convert the old cattle shed and creamery at the beginning of 2012 and wanted to maintain the character of the building while providing a sustainable future for the farm. Our next project is to convert the old piggery and stables into further accommodation. Work on this will begin in 2013.

We keep chickens at Little Rosewarne and currently enjoy eggs from 3 Copper Marans, 2 Speckled Marans and one Cream Legbar. We also raise Oxford, sandy and black pigs. These are black haired and famed for their great quality pork.

What do they love about it?

We bought Little Rosewarne after holidays in the Porthleven area over the past 20 years. We know the area well and would spend most of our holiday time either in Porthleven or towards Falmouth.

When we made the decision to move to Cornwall we knew we wanted to be close to the things and areas we loved. However, we had never been to Godolphin Cross or for that matter Godolphin House. But when we saw Little Rosewarne, we fell in love with the place and felt with its proximity to the areas we enjoyed spending time in, it would make the ideal place for us to live and raise our family.

Little Rosewarne itself is a traditional Cornish farmhouse with extensive gardens. We wanted to buy a property where there was the potential for a blank canvas and for us to make our own mark. The first of which is The Old Dairy. It also means we are close at hand if we are needed.

The area is stunning because it is situated near to Godolphin House with easy access to the the beach and fantastic areas and places to explore.

What do the kids love about it?

We believe that 'The Old Dairy' and 'Hayloft' at Little Rosewarne is the perfect place to escape to, and explore this part of Cornwall. We hope that having spent many years staying in quality holiday accommodation we have worked out what works and what is sometimes missing and it is to this end we hope we can provide that little something extra. If you feel we have forgotten something or there is something we can do to improve your stay then please ask.
