I discovered Hendersick Farmhouse 20 years ago after a countrywide search for a rural property to run and share as a small B&B guesthouse. Once owned by the National Trust, it's an amazing place with a strong feeling of history that I've worked hard to preserve over the years. As a host I've always hoped that people will enjoy a real break from the pressures and consumerism of the modern world when they come to stay. I've very recently reopened having been closed for a number of years whilst my two sons were growing up.
There are two rooms available, both of which are light and airy and share a commanding view across farmland to the sea with Rame Head on the horizon. The thick walls of the house form a window seat in each room. With the large window open wide it can feel almost as though you are sitting outside yet in the security of your room.
A breakfast of muesli, a variety of cereals, croissants or, homemade bread/toast is provided each morning in the guests’ kitchen downstairs. If you would like bacon and eggs for breakfast please let me know the night before. You have the freedom to relax, help yourself and enjoy breakfast at your own pace. You can use the kitchen any time to make tea and coffee, sit and chat and perhaps have a light snack. There's space in the fridge and a microwave.
A few minutes walk from the house takes you out to a hillside overlooking the coast path. From here you can walk down to the beach or across the headland to Hore Point. There’s an impressive view of Looe Island and on a clear day you can just make out the Eddystone Lighthouse on the horizon. Our nearest beach can only be reached on foot or by boat and so is a quiet and secluded place for swimming, relaxation and exploring rockpools. It takes about 45mins to walk to Looe along the coast. In the other direction the footpath takes you to Talland Bay, Polperro and beyond. There’s a small licensed café at Talland Bay, where you can sit outside and enjoy panoramic views across the bay.
