Higher Carthew Farm at a glance
Higher Carthew Farm is a collection of stylish, converted old barns centred around a gravelled courtyard in an idyllic rural setting. We have 4 one bedroomed cottages. There is a garden, orchard and grounds extending to about 25 acres for guests to enjoy.
Each cottage has its own individual identity and they have been restored to a very high level. All four of our cottages have wood-burners should they be needed as well as oil central heating. There are recycling bins on site too.
If you arrive by train to Redruth or Cambourne, taxis are available at the station. The journey time to Higher Carthew Farm is approximately 10 minutes and costs about £20 but please check with your driver beforehand.
The tree lined lane to our cottages brings you to our gravelled courtyard with car parking.
It is good to support local shops but sometimes guests prefer to have an on-line shop waiting for them after a long journey. Tesco, Asda and Sainsbury’s both deliver here and we are happy to put your food items away if the food arrives before you!
Using the postcode of TR13 0JB in your SATNAV should bring you here without any problems. Please also use the directions on our website to successfully find us.
