Experience life on a working farm this spring and stay at The Barn (sleeps three), a rustic retreat near Truro.
Surrounded by piglets, ponies and new-born lambs, feel free to follow the farmer as he goes about his daily activities, or visit the Fal River, which boasts some of the country’s most picturesque walking trails. In the evenings, relax in the open-plan living area, complete with a wood-burning stove and sheepskin blankets. Alternatively, dine al fresco on the sun deck whilst looking out over the impressive apple orchard.
Arriving Friday 1 May, a week’s stay costs £229 pp (£687 total). Call Boutique Retreats on 01872 553 491.
