About

Medlar, built well over 100 years ago as a granite cottage extension to the farmhouse, sleeps 4/5. It has, in turn, been a home, an apple store, and long ago, a play area for the farm children. It was named after an old Medlar tree which grows in the garden nearby.  Downstairs is a cosy and comfortable sitting room with kitchen and dining area and a toilet/shower room. There is  a small downstairs bedroom with a single bed which might suit those who prefer not to climb a flight of stairs. Upstairs are two bedrooms  (with 1 double and 2 single beds).

Outside is a small, private garden and paved area which faces South-West and is surrounded by interesting shrubs and trees. Here there is room for a gentle sunny breakfast, cheerful evening barbecue or, later on, magical star-gazing. Nearby is a more spacious grassy play and sitting area for guests to use.

Quiet and private, Medlar is away from the bustle of Hugh Town, but within easy walking distance (approximately 1.5 miles), very near the bus route and easily accessible for taxis and bikes.

Five minutes' walk across the fields is Porth Hellick, the nearest beach, where shells and rockpools abound. It is a safe and unspoilt playground for children and a quiet retreat for sunbathing, bird-watching or just sitting.

Higher Moors and Holy Vale Nature Trails are both close. Wander beneath rare mature elm trees, stop at the bird hides  or ramble along the 'Birders' Loop' trail through reeds and wetland. Nearby coastal paths, often resplendentwith wild flowers, give extensive views of sea and land, including many nearby Bronze Age monuments and burial chambers, and take you past fascinating rock formations.

Normandy indoor swimming pool is just up the road and St Mary's Riding Centre is within easy walking or cycling distance. The farm is home to St Mary's Riding Centre so you may see some of these horses grazing in our fields.

Pelistry Bay, with silver sand and a small island cut off by the sea at high tide, is about 15 minutes' walk away and Old Town, where there is an attractive sandy beach, tiny church, a small shop, two cafes and a pub is about 20 minutes' walking distance.

Hugh Town is approximately 30 minutes' walk and is easily reached by bus, bike or taxi.
