Carter's Croft - stylish rural retreat close to the Cornish coast

Located in: Penzance
Set in the countryside, just a short distance from the spectacular Cornish coastline Carter's Croft is the perfect location for a relaxing break.

The beautifully restored granite cottage is surrounded by sub-tropical gardens and is ideally situated for exploring the far South West, including St Michael's Mount, the Minack Theatre, St Ives, Land's End and Poldark country.

With its museums, art galleries, gardens and restaurants, there's something for everyone in this part of Cornwall.

Carter's Croft is part of Middle Colenso Farm which consists of the main farmhouse, which is our home, and three boutique holiday cottages. There has been a farm on the site since Elizabethan times although the current buildings date back to the 18th century.

We have recently restored Carter's Croft using traditional building techniques and have furnished it with everything you need for a memorable self-catering holiday.

Classic mid-century furniture as well as natural materials such as slate, wood and linen create a modern rustic ambiance.

The cottage is set in sub-tropical grounds and has its own, private Mediterranean-style courtyard. You will also have access to our communal boules court and gazebo shared with other guests. We provide boules and other outdoor games.

We have an onsite Pilates and fitness studio and you can book a private session with me (Christen) during your stay subject to my availability.

Carter's Croft is ideally placed for exploring the South West of Cornwall and beyond. It enjoys a secluded, rural location half way between Penzance and Helston, just a few minutes drive from Prussia Cove, Marazion and the south coast.

Some of Cornwall's finest beaches, historic sites, gardens and art galleries are all within easy reach of Middle Colenso Farm. Our favourite days out in the area include:
