While retaining the original farm layout, four of the farm buildings have been converted into outstanding holiday cottages with private gardens. There is an outdoor heated swimming pool (May-September) with spacious sun deck and BBQ facilities.

The communal garden and play area are very popular with children. Guests are also invited to help or watch Farmer Jez on his daily rounds, including feeding the pigs, sheep and horses and collecting the chicken’s eggs.

All cottages have access to the pool, private outdoor area, are fully equipped, free Wi-Fi on the property, on-site parking and fantastic rural views.

Within it’s grassy fields Coombe Farm is home to lambs & sheep that munch away all day, or snooze in the shade by the trees. There are generally 3 saddleback pigs in residence in the back field away from the cottages. They are very friendly and love being fed.

Coombe Farm has amazing facilities. The outdoor pool is heated from May to September (weather permitting), and everyone comments how surprisingly warm it is!

About Louise Conway

Lou & Jez Conway took over at Coombe Farm in October 2013. We moved with our young children Ella and William and Granny Sally, 2 dogs and 3 cats. We love the area, the beautiful valley we live in, the pasties, the fresh air, the friendly people, the slower pace of life, the big skies, the cream teas, the wildlife, the rugged coastline. We want to work towards a small holding lifestyle with a few animals and a large vegetable patch. The good life!

Louise Conway purchased this barn in 2013

Why Louise Conway chose North Cornwall

We love Coombe Farm as it is totally remote and secluded, quiet and peaceful. It is also 5 mins from major trunk roads & the market town of Launceston. It is an ideal base to explore North Cornwall, the moors, the coast, the historic villages.

What makes this barn unique

Staying at Coombe Farm you will have the farm experience of living with and feeding the animals, including chickens, pigs, ponies, sheep and goats.

It has a swimming pool, heated in the main season (May - Sept).

Guestbook comments from the owner

An excellent place to stay to enjoy the delights of North Cornwall and beyond. Something very special is going on here- great people- great venue and facilities. The farm and surrounding area are beautiful and nothing it too much trouble from the owners Jez and Lou. My son enjoyed the pool everyday, fed the animals with Jez every morning and simply loved it. Would recommend this for families especially with younger children but could also see myself going here with girlfriends for a retreat! We loved it. Will definitely consider booking again.



What a wonderful cottage, the rooms and really comfortable and we had everything we needed;the pool was an extra bonus. It’s very relaxing and homely!! The owners made us feel very welcome.



Godrevy Barn is enjoyable in every way from the beds to the balcony. Great location with a great view. Lots of things to do so we never got bored. The heated pool was great , we went in everyday.
