My wife, Annie, and I have lived in this house for nearly 20 years and raised our three children here in this lovely spot. We have worked hard to improve both the house and the garden and now feel delighted to share it with people who come to stay. It's a fabulous place to live and an ideal base to explore the beaches and unspoilt countryside of Central and West Cornwall. Only one of our children, Barnaby, lives with us now as the other two have 'flown the nest.' Barnaby is eleven and attends Penryn College. I was the Head teacher of Mawnan C of E Primary School and Annie the Special Needs teacher- until fairly recently. We both now enjoy working to make our guests as welcome as possible to the Tinners Retreat and Fern Cottage Apartment which adjoins the house. Please do ask if you require anything or have any problems whilst you are here.
