Welcoming cottage &pool, nr Eden, Heligan, beaches

Rafters is a wonderfully welcoming barn conversion with reversed accommodation to make the most of the views over the beautiful Cornish countryside.

The inspiration for the name “Rafters” comes from the truly impressive, galleried, first floor open plan living area which features vaulted ceilings with exposed wooden trusses, traditional wooden flooring, comfortable furnishings, large pine farmhouse dining table large enough for ten, fully fitted kitchen, and log burning stove. It’s a great space in which you can really relax and enjoy quality time with friends and family. The downstairs has exposed wooden beams throughout; three pretty bedrooms with classic wooden floors, luxurious pure cotton linen and pocket spring mattresses; and, bathroom with loads of hot water for a revitalizing bath or shower. The double bedroom also has an en-suite shower room. Full central heating gives year-round comfort.

Rafters is located in the peaceful hamlet of Higher Menadew set in the beautiful Cornish Countryside and ideally situated in mid Cornwall for exploring and enjoying all Cornwall has to offer; close to the outstanding Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, Lanhydrock, Fowey, Mevagissey, Charlestown, Bodmin Moor, Camel Trail, Tintagel Castle and the fabulous north and south coasts and much more.

You will love the space, excellent range of facilities including fabulous indoor pool, games room, outdoor play and space; comfort, serenity, and families with younger children will appreciate the nursery equipment helping you pack lighter. Enjoy a swim in the heated indoor pool or simply relax and unwind in this tranquil location; the sky is dark at night so you can see the stars too!

There are good eateries within a short drive including public houses, super fish and chips, and restaurants.

Rafters is a super cottage in which to refresh and unwind; and enjoy and explore Cornwall.

Reviews for Rafters at Higher Menadew Farm

Cottage Review logo

Meet the owner

Anita or Andrew Higman

Andrew was born and bred at Higher Menadew, his parent’s having moved here in 1944, and Anita originates from London. Higher Menadew Farm is set in the peaceful Cornish countryside and we feel very fortunate to be able to live and work in such a beautiful county. Our central Cornwall location means that we are within easy reach of all that Cornwall has to offer and we especially enjoy the fabulous coastline. We have walked all Cornwall’s coastal path, all 296.2 miles, along with one of our Labradors, Archie, and the vistas are endlessly stunning. We value the environment. Our all-grass farm on which we rear beef cattle, the dairy herd went in 1996, is deliberately run with low inputs to encourage traditional grasses and our hedges are overgrown to encourage wildlife. We are members of the Cornwall Sustainable Tourism Project and business members of Cornwall Wildlife Trust.
