About Middle Colenso Farm

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

The farm consists of the main farmhouse and three holiday cottages in what were once barns and outbuildings. There has been a farm on the site since Elizabethan times although the current buildings date back to the18th century.


Since moving here in 2013 we have undertaken an extensive programme of renovation. The cottages are decorated in a modern rustic style.

Expect to find classic mid-century and Scandinavian furniture and natural materials such as reclaimed wood, slate and linen. All three cottages have wood burning stoves, making them a cosy choice in the cooler months.

The cottages are self-contained but, as they're all on the same site, lend themselves to stays with family and friends. 

Middle Colenso Farm is set in typically Cornish gardens, with exotic plants including gunnera, banana trees, palms and tree ferns. As well as their own private garden, guests also have access to a communal boules court and gazebo. There is an outdoor shower (cold water only) which is perfect for wetsuits and muddy dogs. Guests may also book a session at the on-site Pilates and fitness studio.

There is plenty of dedicated off-road parking. 

The Cottages

Cosy, comfortable and stylish cottage with everything you need for a relaxing break. We loved the peace and quiet and waking up to birdsong. We will be back.
