Babes Cottage in Cornwall, a cottage in Cornwall: Babes Cottage exterior

Stone cottage in a tranquil rural setting with a 2 acre recreation field

Caerkief Cottages are off the beaten track on a former farm and surrounded by acres of beautiful Cornish countryside. They offer a tranquil retreat and yet are only a few minutes drive away from the popular surfing town of Perranporth with its endless golden sandy beach.

These converted farm buildings, with their exposed beams and thick stone walls, ooze character and are a perfect base from which to explore the many wonders that Cornwall has to offer.

Enjoy the sunset from the balcony of Hollies Cottage with its typically Cornish upside-down layout or relax in the quaintness of Babes Cottage, the old piggery.

Just few steps away from the cottages is a two-acre recreation field with sitting-out areas, garden furniture, a gas barbecue, a chimenea, play equipment and an acre of meadow.

Close to some of the best beaches in the UK - ask us about our favourites.
Endless walks, many starting from the front door of your cottage.
Great cycling opportunities, including the Camel Trail.
Excellent nearby eateries
Picturesque local gardens.

Babes Cottage is a delightful converted piggery full of charm and character that has recently been refurbished and redecorated. The cottage has an open-plan living area with a beamed ceiling and two sofas, one of which is a sofa bed. The dining table seats four. Three steps lead up to the fully fitted kitchen. From there you go through to the double bedroom and bathroom with shower over bath.

Directly outside the front door is a picnic table for alfresco dining.

The former farm is set 500 metres down a quiet, unmade lane, and is the perfect location for those seeking a peaceful holiday in the countryside, with miles of beautiful country walks starting from your front door. It is a very pleasant 25 minute walk on quiet byways to Goonhavern with its shop and excellent pub. And only 2.5 miles away is the seaside town of Perranporth with its amenities, large surfing beach and golf course. The surfing beaches and golf course at Newquay is 7 miles away, Truro with its pleasant shopping centre is 9 miles and the Eden Project, 20 miles.

Large barn available to store bikes, roof boxes, boats etc.
