The Barn at Venn Hill Farm provides secluded child-friendly and pet-friendly self-catering holiday accommodation for up to 6 people. Situated down a quiet Cornish lane, but easily reached from Plymouth, Launceston and Liskeard, Venn Hill Farm is an ideal holiday base for visiting the fishing villages of Looe, Polperro and Fowey, and for exploring the coastal walks and beaches of both the north and south coasts of Cornwall and the wild upland expanses of Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor.

The Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, many Cornish gardens, the Tate Gallery in St. Ives, the Cornish Mining Heritage sites and many other tourist attractions can be easily reached. From the upstairs lounge of the Barn there are panoramic views over the Cornish countryside. Sheep, ducks and chickens are kept on the farm, and visitors can walk around the farm, feed the chickens, and buy fresh free-range eggs, and in spring there are lambs.
