Nicky lives in Barton Farm House and is on the spot for any problems that may arise. She often has her 3 grown up sons to stay, plus daughters-in-law and now a granddaughter. They don’t seem to be able to stay away.
The History of Place
The Place Estate with its church and manor house has been in our family for over 400 years. It is set in the lovely Roseland peninsular, is almost entirely surrounded by sea and has been designated an area of outstanding natural beauty and a heritage coastline.
It’s a long time since our first cottage was advertised for letting, and we can’t quite believe it, but that was more than 30 years ago. Now we have 4 letting cottages, sleeping from 2 and up to 6/9 and many of our guests return year after year with their children, dogs and grandchildren, as do all our own grown up children.
We have all been involved in the holiday business since our childhood. In those days the main house, Place, was a hotel. After the war it was in such a dilapidated state, our mother, then a very young bride, took one look at it and decided she was not ready to live there yet and it became a guest house/hotel, but that’s another story.
Our summer holidays were spent in a cottage on the farm, and we would spend the evenings helping making sandwiches for the guests’ packed lunches!
Our parents slowly brought the grounds under control and made a home in the converted stables, where our mother still lives with her black Labrador, Bendix.
Place was renovated in the early 90’s by Kevin and his wife Moo and is available for rent. If you are interested, please visit http://www.placeestate.co.uk
We really do love sharing this beautiful and peaceful place with all our guests, their children and friends, and of course their dogs.
