Farthings has been thought out in every way for a family holiday to maximise use of the space available. The bedrooms were ideal for the children, and all the house facilities were excellent. A beach 30 yards away was perfect for everyone, and the outside shower was used throughout our stay. A great place! July 2011.
Farthings was by far the best beach vacation house yet in Cornwall. 30 meters from the beach, each bedroom kitted out with children's toys and games...kitchen equipped and charming, fantastic outdoor shower (which is essential for a beach stay). All we can say is, we will be back every year! July 2011.
"Brilliant property brilliant location. Nothing more can be added." April 2010.
"Very good service from BlueChip - efficient and thorough. Excellent property - well maintained with excellent touches." Mrs Bareham, April 2010
