A beautifully appointed, substantial, granite farmhouse, awash with character features, tasteful decor and set in the most picturesque, unspoilt hamlet on the side of the Camel Valley. The mature garden provides plenty of exterior space for younger family members to run off some steam or relax and enjoy the tranquil setting with far-reaching rural views across farmland and wooded valleys.

Property Details

The Old Farmhouse at Inner Fentonadle is a stunning granite property, recently renovated (2021). The owners have taken every care to maintain the beautiful decor throughout. There is a feeling of luxury and space. There are two reception rooms, a reception hall with a wood-burning stove surrounded by a couple of sumptuous chairs, a bright open plan kitchen dining area and four bedrooms upstairs; all maintain the high standards in detail. Outside is a large garden with mature trees and rural views across the Camel valley and farmland, where you are likely to see the cows strolling past.

Only minutes from the spectacular Bodmin Moor, two miles from the start of The Camel Trail, and a short drive to the magnificent north coast, with its breath-taking cliffs, secluded coves and beaches and easy access to Cornwall’s main highways, this original farmhouse is ideally suited for your holiday to Cornwall, whatever your interests.

Within 15 minutes, you can be at Trebarwith Strand beach, the legendary Tintagel and its famous castle and the fishing villages of Boscastle and Port Isaac. Popular Rock, Padstow and the lifeguard patrolled Polzeath beach with surf schools aplenty are only minutes further. Inland you can hire bikes at Wenfordbridge, the beginning of The Camel Trail – a near flat, largely traffic-free trail following the old railway line to Padstow, explore nearby Pencarrow House and Gardens or sample the wines at The Camel Vineyard. Nearby, Bodmin is home to the infamous Jail and its newly opened attractions. The world-famous smugglers haunt of Jamaica Inn, immortalised by Daphne du Maurier, or the more peaceful National Trust’s Lanhydrock House.

The Old Farmhouse has great access to both the A30 and A39, so you can easily expand your exploration of this gorgeous county, whether visiting Eden Project on the South Coast or heading further West towards Lands End.

Property Location


Nearby you can visit the mysterious Tintagel and its castle, associated with the legends surrounding King Arthur. Perhaps you might visit the nearby fishing village of Boscastle, a tiny port with a natural harbour set in a narrow ravine. The South West Coast Path walks along this coastline are dramatic and rugged, and with a quick search, you can find walks to suit all abilities.

Trebarwith Strand, 2 miles south of Tintagel, is the closest, easily accessible, sandy family beach, with plenty of facilities and a seasonal lifeguard service. It is an ideal location for playing or exploring with its many rock pools, though take care to check tide times for safety.

Port Isaac, a small, picturesque fishing village, recently the location of filming for "Doc Martin" with Martin Clunes, has a good selection of cafes, shops and pubs, or the quieter, near-deserted Port Gaverne and Port Quin are natural coves for rock pooling, or perhaps paddleboarding.

Further down the coast, between Rock and Polzeath, you’ll find golden beaches and coves with some of the best surf in Europe. Along the River Camel estuary, a walk on this stretch of the coast allows you to explore the beautiful sandy Daymer Bay, more protected by the sandy Doom Bar, making it popular with families. Perhaps climb Brea Hill for spectacular views over the estuary and out to sea or take a walk through the dunes to find the Grade I listed St Enodoc Church, the resting place of the former poet laureate John Betjeman. From Rock, you can sail, enjoy the beach or perhaps take the passenger ferry, which is only a few minutes, which will allow you to set foot in Padstow.

The National Trust have three stately properties nearby; Lanhydrock House, Trerice and Cotehele as well as ownership of beautiful walks and beaches between Port Isaac and Polzeath and the walking trails from Padstow around the Trevose Headland to the dramatic cliffs and beach at Bedruthan Steps.

If you fancy something different, try a tour around the Camel Valley Vineyard, Cornish Wine has been growing in stature around the world. Their sparkling wines are truly stunning; having picked up lots of international awards, go for a tasting you will not be disappointed! Or if Cider is more your tipple, nearby Haywood Farm and its extensive orchards are worth a visit.

The Old Farmhouse is situated on the side of The Camel Valley, which meanders and widens till it eventually finishes in an estuary with Padstow to its west and Polzeath to Rock on its East. Just two miles from the house is Wenfordbridge, the start of The Camel Trail. You can hire bikes to enjoy this generally flat and traffic-free trail that goes to Padstow, enjoying the wonderful scenery and plenty of wildlife, including fantastic sightings of wading birds to see on this serene and generally flat and traffic-free trail.

Wadebridge, just 6 miles away, was originally a market town. It has an amazing 15th-century bridge with 17 arches over the River Camel, which is definitely worth visiting. The bridge was built on wool, as this was how the wealthy landowners in the area made their money. From the day the bridge was built, the town became known as Wadebridge. The Royal Cornwall Showground at Wadebridge hosts the county show every June, come rain or shine, opened each year by a Royal Family member. Cornish Farmers have had to diversify in recent years and so has the show, but they have kept their traditional roots with steam engines being shown next to the shiny new high-tech tractors. It's not every day you get to see a formation JCB digger dancing in the main ring.

Wadebridge is centrally located and is the perfect location to further head out on the main roads down into Cornwall or branch out to Padstow. Padstow is a beautiful working fishing port, a popular location, best known perhaps for the Rick Stein empire of eateries. Home also to The National Lobster Hatchery, it has many shops, bars and galleries to enjoy. Perhaps ferry over to Rock on the other side of the estuary, eat fish and chips or crab from the harbour walls, or start a coastal walk out towards Stepper Point or further to Trevone Bay.

Bodmin Moor is minutes from The Old Farmhouse, dominated by large granite tors which tower over sweeping expanses of moorland. A climb up Rough Tor from the National Trust car park is manageable for most and worth it for the spectacular views. Or minutes from the house, perhaps run, cycle or enjoy a horse ride and perhaps catch the meandering Highland cattle crossing the road.

Whatever you choose, there is so much to do using The Old Farmhouse as your base for a memorable holiday in Cornwall.

Both Bodmin and have a large selection of supermarkets, shops and restaurants.

Excellent house & location spotlessly clean & comfortable to a very high standard. Adequate car parking for several cars and still plenty of space for kids to play. Perfect place to relax and enjoy the views across the valley, or a short drive to the beach and other attractions. We will definitely be rebooking to enjoy this property again

Nice break
Reviewed on 25/08/2021

A week break for 6, some lovely touches of games, furnishings and multiple leisure spaces. The beds were comfortable. Location is rural and short drive to a nice pub but driving is essential, no walks from the house. Just one functioning shower was a drag and would have been very difficult if we had been 8 at capacity.

The Old Farmhouse replied:
We appreciate you taking the time to review our property. We have since fixed the bath overhead shower and are now employing a new cleaning company. We value your feedback and are pleased that you had a great stay. We hope to welcome you back in the future.
