Leigh Farm is set in 250 acres of beautiful, romantic Cornish countryside. The Grade II Listed farmhouse was built on the site of an ancient manor and is full of authentic features, some dating back to the 15th century.
Your hosts, Annie and Charles Yeo, manage the farm as a predominantly sheep and arable enterprise. Annie also keeps a large apiary of bees and is delighted to serve her own honey with your breakfast when available.
The farmhouse offers secluded accommodation with unbroken views across open fields and woodland. It is the ideal location for a romantic getaway or a quiet and pleasant break. Despite the farm's secluded position, the A38 is just a 10-15 minute drive away. Plymouth city centre is easily accessible within 30 minutes, ideal for the travelling business person wishing to have a peaceful country stay. WiFi is available allowing you to work or communicate from these idyllic surroundings.
Leigh Farm is an ideal centre for exploring the north and south coasts of Cornwall, a sporting break, or simply touring the beautiful surrounding countryside and Cornish lanes.
Annie and Charles are happy to provide ideas for local walks.
Leigh Farm provides a perfect location for a romantic getaway for you and your partner. The idyllic setting provides the peace and beauty of the South East Cornwall countryside. Leigh Farm's guest accomodation is housed in a seperate wing, allowing guests seculsion from the rest of the farmhouse.
This is a busy place, with something happening on the farm all the time. The guest wing is a haven of peace in this hive of activity.
One of the activities on the farm is beekeeping. The honey that you can enjoy with your breakfast has not travelled very far; indeed most of your breakfast ingredients will have been sourced within a two mile radius of your plate and complimented with homemade bread and preserves.
If you're not keen on bees, don't worry. The hives are kept at a fair distance from the farmhouse. If you are keen, ask Annie about the bees - she might even sign you up for a beekeeping course.
A good early honey harvest was taken in May from the Oil seed rape, but since then the temperature and weather has been inconsistant and even though the Blackberry is now flowering, the hope of a good mid summer honey harvest is fading. The crops in the fields are looking reasonably okay despite the cold spring; although my kitchen garden is struggling to get going. Notably the runner beans and sweetcorn are suffering from the low temperatures. We have sold many of the spring lambs and are thinking of when to take the rams to the ewes, probably earlier than last year to catch the best of the spring lamb market 2013.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this farm B& B and look forward to our next trip to Cornwall.Doreen & David Wiltshire
