Finding Inspiration in Every Turn


Location Hire

Middle Colenso Farm, its three holiday cottages and Flat 1, The Bell Tower are all available for location hire for photo shoots and filming.

The farm dates back to the mid-18th century and is centred on a handsome granite farmhouse. In addition, there are three holiday cottages, a barn, a Pilates and fitness studio and grounds of just over an acre which include a large lawn, exotic planting, a walled vegetable and flower garden, greenhouse, pond and boules court.

The main house has been featured in numerous interiors publications including Country Living, Homes & Antiques The Telegraph Magazine, The Simple Things, Red, Good Homes, Country Homes & Interiors and Magnolia, Decorated in a modern rustic style, it features exposed stone walls and wooden floors and is filled with mid-century modern design classics and books. 

We have a 1959 Jaguar XK150 drop head coupe which is also available for hire. 

You can find a selection of photographs of the main house and grounds below. For more information about the cottages click here  and for The Bell Tower click here.


As well as photo shoots and filming, Middle Colenso Farm also lends itself well to events such as workshops and retreats. As well as our own fitness retreat, bestselling author Katherine May and author and writing coach Penny Wincer have hosted their own events here. 

Penny said: "Middle Colenso Farm is the perfect place to run intimate retreats. Christen and Chris have created the most beautiful cottages that are both luxurious and cosy, the perfect environment to bring people together. The three bedroom cottage has plenty of space to bring everyone together for meals and socialising, but there is also plenty of privacy between the three cottages, allowing guests to have some space.


"Location wise, it couldn’t be better, with a mainline train station just a short drive (or taxi ride) away, making it easy for guests to arrive on their own schedule, and not requiring a car (and there is plenty of parking for those who drive). Nearby there is a fantastic farmshop for local Cornish produce, as well as a conveniently located shop and pub. All of this makes it easy to provide guests with everything they might need. The nearby coastline provides an excellent spot for walking and even cold water swimming. 


"The cottages are nestled in beautiful gardens, providing a gorgeous backdrop and Christen and Chris provide so many extra touches to make it feel special for each guest, including cut flowers, freshly baked scones and even beds and treats for dogs (who are welcome at Middle Colenso Farm). It really is a magical place to run retreats for those who want to give their guests a very special experience."
