However, in order to safeguard our guests and staff we must still reserve the right to close the site and cancel bookings in the event of the presence of a case of Covid-19, or following any changes to government guidelines. In this instance, you will be able to reschedule your booking for the next 12 months at no extra cost, or we can provide a refund.
Guesthouse & Grain Store
What days are you open?
From September - March, our restaurant is open from Thursday – Sunday inclusive for dinner and lunch. The Farmhouse and Grain Store are open to staying guests from Thursday afternoon to Monday morning for bed and breakfast.

The self-catering cottage is available for use 365 days a year, with check-in and check-out days on Monday & Friday.
What time is check in and check out?
You can check into the guest house from 3pm in the afternoon. Check out is at 10.30am. We kindly ask that you check out promptly in order to allow for our house keeping team to carry out an extensive deep clean.
How many guests can stay at the farm?
The farmhouse can accommodate up to 12 people, across 5 double bedrooms and one adult sized bunk. We also have four additional rooms, accommodating a further 8 people, in our converted Grain Store. The Cottage sleeps 4 people.
Do you have any twin beds?
Room 3, 8 and 9 can be made into twin beds, please let us know at the time of booking if you would like this to be arranged.
How do I book a room?
You can book a B&B room here, or our self-catering Cottage here. We no longer take bookings via phone or email, unless you are trying to book with a voucher.
Can I book the whole house?
It is possible to have an exclusive hire of the entire farm - Farmhouse, Grain Store, restaurant and cottage - but the house is no longer available as a separate hire out option. You may book multiple farmhouse rooms on a bed and breakfast basis but the house will remain a communal space for other guests to use at their leisure.
Do you have any wheelchair accessible rooms?
Rooms 6 & 7 are wheelchair friendly, please contact us for more information.
What is the setting like?
Set amongst 66 acres of meadows, woodland and oak-lined streams, Coombeshead Farm is a guesthouse, restaurant and working farm offering glorious isolation and farmhouse comforts in the heart of Cornwall’s rural countryside.
As well as a guesthouse and restaurant, we are a working farm and bakery. Unfortunately this does mean that members of the farm - both human and animal - are up and about as the sun rises.
Our new Grain Store rooms are well insulated and double glazed but please bear in mind that rooms 6 & 7 open out opposite our on site bakery. We endeavour to keep noise to an absolute minimum but if you sleep with the windows open you will have the smell of fresh bread from the early hours. Rooms 1 - 5 are situated in our 19th century farmhouse, set above the farmyard and thus away from bakery and kitchen, surrounded by garden and beside the small country lane on which Coombeshead dwells. Rooms 8 & 9 face only the farm and vegetable garden - the pigs, cows and chickens remain subdued for the most part, but there is often a wonderful dawn chorus through Spring and Summer.
Do you accept children?
Sadly, unless you are hiring out the whole Farm or the Cottage (sleeps 4), a stay on the farm is only suitable for children over the age of 12. If you hire the whole Farm or book the Cottage as self catered accommodation then children and babies of any age are welcome. Children and babies are also welcome for lunch and dinner.
Do you accept dogs in the restaurant?
Dogs are permitted on the grounds of the farm but as a working farm with livestock kept throughout the year, we please ask that your dog remains on a lead at all times. Due to our open kitchen, dogs are not allowed in the restaurant or in the Farmhouse. The cottage and Room 6 are dog friendly, with a £60 fee applied per animal per stay.

What dietary requirements do you cater for?
We will try to cater for most medical dietary needs and allergies as long as we are given enough notice - Please notify us upon booking. However, we do not feel comfortable accepting those with Coeliac Disease due to the onsite milling of flour in our bakery. We do not cater to preferences.
Do you accept dogs?
Due to the open plan kitchen, dogs are not allowed in the restaurant due to health and safety reasons.
Do you accept children?
Children are welcome in the restaurant at both Lunch & Dinner but please note that due to the size of the dining room, every seat is charged for.
