Where better to have your Family Holiday or Poldark escape?

Close to key filming and book locations, The Old Dairy and The Hayloft are situated in the middle of Cornwall's mining heritage.

Weekly rentals from £560 with short breaks also available out of season.

Both luxury self contained holiday homes are situated within the grounds of our home at Little Rosewarne. The cottages provide everything you need to have your perfect Cornish holiday escape... so when will yours be? The Old Dairy, the former cattle shed and creamery at Little Rosewarne has been carefully renovated keeping the character of the old building but providing all the comforts of modern living. The Hayloft is a first floor 'modern' barn conversion, with high lofted ceilings and views across open countryside. Both properties are finished to a very high standard and equipped with everything you will need (see our reviews!).

Little Rosewarne lies nestled at the base of Godolphin Hill within part of the Cornish Mining World Heritage site. From the summit of the hill there are spectacular panoramic views over West Cornwall and the Lizard. The National Trust's Godolphin Estate borders the grounds with Godolphin House and Gardens a short walk away.

With easy access to the beaches and rugged coastline of West Cornwall, Poldark country, the Lizard Peninsula, historic St Ives and the Helford Estuary, 'The Old Dairy' and 'The Hayloft' are the perfect place for your Cornish holiday escape.

Godolphin Cross

Godolphin Cross is a village in west Cornwall, situated close to the pretty fishing village of Porthleven and the historic market town of Helston, which is the gateway to the Lizard. One mile west of the village, Godolphin Hill rises to 162 metres. The Godolphin Estate is near the village. It is now wholly owned by the National Trust, and is undergoing extensive renovation. The whole estate and surrounding woodlands, including Godolphin Hill, can be explored straight from the front door of both 'The Old Dairy' and 'The Hayloft'. (Caroline Quentin took a tour of the house and gardens and enjoyed the views during a visit in her series of 'Cornwall').
