The property

Peacefully located close to the coastal footpath, only a mile from the picturesque Church Cove, a
lovely holiday experience awaits you at Hingey Farmhouse. An 180 acre working dairy farm, you
can watch the activity of cows being milked, children will love the novelty of looking for newly laid
eggs for breakfast and also getting acquainted with the rabbits in the pets corner. With your
relaxation and enjoyment in mind an area of field immediately opposite the farmhouse has been
landscaped to create a very private garden, complete with barbecue patio and a safe toddler play
area, while older children have space to run and play. Cleverly divided to provide substantial
semidetached accommodation for guests, this rambling old granite stone farmhouse provides all
the comfort of home for larger family groups. During renovation a host of original features were
revealed and old beams, exposed stone walls and natural slate floors once again add character
and charm to its ample interior. Furnished in an attractive blend of antique and modern the lounge
boasts a traditional wood burner for extra warmth; the country style kitchen is spacious and well
fitted; a games room is a welcome attraction and upstairs there are views to the sea from two
front bedrooms.


The house is a just mile from Gunwalloe; an idyllic fishing village on the Lizard
Peninsula and here you will find the award winning Halzephron Inn noted for its excellent menu.
The Lizard peninsula is classed as an area of outstanding natural beauty and it is there is much
opportunity to get out and enjoy all that the area has to offer. Almost surrounded by the sea, the
peninsula stands alone, in a very real sense, from the rest of the county and the coastal path takes
in pretty little coves where cottages cluster around the tiny harbours and colourful fishing boats
chug in and out. Protected by the National Trust, a stop at Mullion Cove is a must as is a visit to
Roskilly's Farm and ice cream parlour. Between Gunwalloe and the harbour town of Porthleven sits
Loe Pool, the largest freshwater lake in Cornwall. It is separated from the sea by a sand spit known
as Loe Bar. Situated on the Penrose Estate which is now owned by the National Trust, there are
public footpaths all around Loe Pool.


Venturing inland you will find the market town of Helston and
here there is a good range of local shops, cafes and restaurants. Flora Day is celebrated in the
town each May 8th with dancing and festivities in the streets. There are many attractions in the
area including Poldark Mine, Flambards Theme Park and the
National Seal Sanctuary at Gweek. For those that wish to venture further afield, the coastal towns
of St Ives and Penzance are both within easy driving distance to the west whilst Truro, the capital
of Cornwall is 30 minutes drive to the east. There is parking for four cars.
