    “The cottage was in a lovely situation, but was not quite as we had expected from the description.”

    It had a damp quality on entering; it was not nearly as clean as it should have been and in comparison to other cottages, in which we have stayed. It was described as having two bathrooms and, while this was true objectively, the shower room downstairs was more of a cold cloakroom rather than a place where one would have wanted to strip down and wash. There was uncleaned mould all around the room. ...

    It had a damp quality on entering; it was not nearly as clean as it should have been and in comparison to other cottages, in which we have stayed. It was described as having two bathrooms and, while this was true objectively, the shower room downstairs was more of a cold cloakroom rather than a place where one would have wanted to strip down and wash. There was uncleaned mould all around the room. The cottage came on to the let market in around 2006 according to the information pack and not much appears to have changed since then. The duvets were old and "heavy" thus making sleep rather difficult. Fortunately, we were only four rather than six and staying there with six people would have been a bit of a squeeze. May I suggest that the washing line is moved to other side of the garden, where there is much more sun, as it spends most of the day in the shade. On a positive note, there was plenty of hot water and the bathroom upstairs was light and spacious with a good availability of clean large towels. The bedrooms were fine. The local area was lovely and the location of the house is fine for holidaying in this part of Cornwall. However, it is described as "a five-minute drive from the picturesque beach at Trevaunance Cove". It is actually a 2½ mile drive and takes a good 15 - 20 minutes along some narrow lanes, but the surrounding area is certainly worth visiting All of these issues can be easily overcome and, with greater attention, this cottage would give a better experience. We never saw or had any contact with the housekeeper. In our previous experiences, we have stayed in places, where there has been a private owner, who is interested to meet the guests and (i) be on hand to deal with any issues and (ii) give information on the locality. We were under the impression that this cottage is more under the control of a commercial company.

The property

The picturesque beach at Trevaunance Cove is just a five-minute drive from Goshen Farm; this is the main beach at St Agnes and a family, best-kept secret.

With the old harbour and a labyrinth of caves to explore, there's plenty to keep you amused and, at low tide, there is the opportunity to walk to the neighbouring, northerly beach of Trevellas Porth.

Chapel Porth is also within easy driving distance.

Set in a mining valley between high cliffs, the first view of the cove is quite dramatic, while for walking enthusiasts the breathtaking views along the coastal path are a must-see.

Goshen Farm is a pretty, detached property which has been carefully preserved, retaining a lot of the original features.

Situated in the attractive, wooded and sheltered Perran Valley, this substantial property is well-located for a peaceful yet busy holiday!

Surrounded by and overlooking acres of farmland, the house is blessed with country sounds, beautiful views, and a private lawned garden.

The famous seaside town of Perranporth, with a golf course and the long stretch of Perran Sands - great for surfing - is nearby.

In twenty-five minutes reach the cathedral city of Truro for serious shopping and entertainment at The Hall for Cornwall.

The whole of the west Cornwall coastline is never more than thirty-five minutes away: enjoy a trip to Newquay Zoo, the National Maritime Museum at Falmouth, the Tate Gallery at St Ives, and loads of great beach activities.

Closer to home, a short walk from the farm will take you to the village of Mithian where there is an attractive pub, The Miner's Arms, and a country-house hotel.

Extensively refurbished, Goshen Farm is a place of comfort and tranquillity, ideal for families who enjoy exploring countryside and coastline.

Spacious and tastefully furnished, guests will find a home from home.

Goshen Farm parking for 2 cars.
