Silver award winner in the Cornwall Tourism Awards 2017 / 2018 Self Catering Property of the Year category and awarded Highly Commended in their Wildlife Friendly Tourism Business Award category, you will be staying in one of the best locations in Cornwall.
Orchard Cottage (named after its garden which overlooks the Orchard across to the Woods) is a Victorian Gothic style attached property which provides picturesque cosy accommodation for 1-3 people staying at Lower Marsh Farm. Set all on the ground floor, it was recently fully refurbished with a modern eat-in kitchen, stylish bathroom, comfortable living and sleeping area with oak flooring and a wood burner.
Outside there’s a private garden area overlooking the orchard with your own hot tub, a table and chairs for al-fresco dining and a BBQ. The garden is planted with a pretty herbaceous border and includes a gorgeous dark purple Buddleia which swarms with butterflies in the summer. There is a small plum tree with fruits ready for picking in late summer and just outside the garden but with some branches hanging over is an ancient mulberry tree whose delicious fruits are again ready in late summer. Then a few steps takes you into the Orchard where there are apples, cherries, pears, plums, walnuts and a young Quince so there are fruit treats ready from July onwards with the final apples maturing as late as November!
Orchard Cottage has step free access and is all on the ground floor making the cottage comfortable for those with limited mobility.
Guests have full access to all of our amenities. Set in over 40 acres of stunning Tamar Valley landscape which include Salt Marsh Nature Reserve. The area is teaming with wildlife. We have a woodland, river frontage and shingle beach, tennis court, orchard, basketball hoop, and games room. Also we are Cornwall Wildlife Trust Members which gives our guests access to their wildlife education sessions for children which include mini-beast safaris, rock pooling events and bird box making. We can also offer our guests discounted tickets for the Lost Gardens of Heligan and Eden Project. The farm is managed in an eco-friendly manner and you can find out more about this here – we are happy to explain how this works during your visit.
After a day of exploring the Farm and nearby areas, relax with a drink in front of the roaring log burner – you are welcome to use wood from our wood store.
Should you find yourself needing to attend to a little ‘office’ work during your stay, then we even have that covered. Our guests are welcome to use our brand new ‘hot desk’ facility free of charge. Fitted with a convenient kitchen area, you can help yourself to complimentary tea and coffee, knowing that you are not too far away from your friends and family. You’ll be back to relaxing in no time!
There are so many things to do here and out and about, but for any rainy days, the cottage comes complete with a flat screen satellite television and DVD player. There are books, board games and DVDs in the property for your use.
