Old Newham Farm - The best choice for your Cornish Cottage Holiday

Why Choose Old Newham for your Cornish Farm Holiday



Our unique location


  • Old Newham Farm is in the heart of one of the most unspoiled areas of Cornwall. It is just 3 miles from the highest and most impressive sections of the coastal path. A choice of several of the areas best beaches are within a few minutes drive.

  • Deep in the countryside at the end of a quiet lane with only one near neighbour, ½ mile off the Atlantic Highway. No where else can you find such peace and tranquillity yet have such very easy access to all North Cornwall and Devon has to offer.

Our long personal experience in holiday letting


  • We have been renting our self-catering cottages which we have gradually developed from redundant old stone buildings for well over 30 years, incorporating new technology and designs as appropriate to exceed the requirements and expectations of today‚Äôs visitors.

  • No one can advise you better as to the suitability of our cottages, our farm or the area to fit your needs than us. We have lived here for over 36 years and know all the features and attractions around personally.

  • As we live here, we are always available to offer help and advise to answer your questions and problems.

We try to keep your stay as relaxing as we can


  • Only three cottages and a maximum of ten guests at a time on our 30 acre farm.

  • Old Newham is not run on a commercial basis. With the exception of our small suckler beef herd, all our animals are basically pets kept solely for our and our visitors pleasure.
    You will not be disturbed at the crack of dawn with farming activities. Our organic farm is managed to encourage wildlife. The tree lined bank of the River Ottery is home to many varied species.

We keep our prices as competitive as possible


  • The rent of our cottages reflect the fact that you are dealing direct with us, the actual owner of the property. They are not inflated by hundred(s) of pounds paid to some listing/agency sites such as booking.com, home-away, holiday-lettings etc. who have, most likely, never been to North Cornwall and certainly never seen Old Newham Farm.
