Whimple Farm

Whimple Farm is a beautifully renovated Grade II Listed house sleeping 12 guests. It is set in 50 acres of magical woodland within a designated Area of Outstanding Beauty and Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) alongside the River Tamar. Built in 1670, this once forgotten grade II Listed "cross passage house" has been flawlessly renovated to create a luxurious country home for those seeking peace and seclusion. An enviable stylish pad offering a bespoke fusion of farmhouse charm with modern day living. Large inglenook fireplaces, deep wooden window seats and granite slab flooring combine with original Ercol furniture, mid century antiques and state of the art mod cons.

Pack up the car with your country kit and arrive from city desk to farmhouse in no time as Whimple Farm is perfectly placed on the Devon/Cornwall border. Hidden away along farm tracks on the banks of the River Tamar, the house sits proudly alongside two miles of stunning river frontage. Escapism awaits, children will immerse themselves in day long adventures amongst cherry and apple orchards whilst you relax with only the Cornish cows to disturb.

Whether a full house of 12 looking to escape the hubbub of city life, a family get together with celebrations in mind or even a romantic country bolthole, Whimple Farm's versatility throughout the seasons makes it the perfect home from home. If enjoying the culinary flair of a private chef sounds just heaven sent or country pursuits are on the agenda, Cornish Gems have teamed up with likeminded professionals to offer the complete concierge experience during your stay, leaving you to catch up with old friends.

Available to rent for short breaks for full weeks. Short break prices start from £1109 (for up to 12 guests) and weekly prices range from £1849 - £4695 (for up to 12 guests).
