The Studio at Orchard Flower Farm - Cabin in Cornwall, United Kingdom

Last cache: 17:57:00, Friday 23 June 2017

Orchard Flower Farm

Not suitable for children

Not suitable for pets

A romantic, former artist's studio, with spectacular views out of floor to ceiling windows and the beach 20 minutes' walk away...

**The Studio at Orchard Flower Farm is not taking any further bookings for 2017**

Orchard Flower Farm must certainly be an inspirational spot – this converted artists’ studio is where late Master printer Hugh Stoneman produced work with former residents such as Sir Terry Frost, Patrick Heron, Sandra Blow and Grayson Perry. It’s easy to see why when you look through the floor to ceiling windows and out to wonderful views over the valley and down to a brook running along the bottom field. Built in the style of a wooden pole house, all wood and glass, the Studio is light, airy and open-plan; a large living area and an inordinately well-equipped kitchen make up the ground floor, while a mezzanine bedroom above (with ensuite bathroom) has the best views of all. Or perhaps that’s the large covered deck outside…

Owner Linda will leave you a welcome pack of supplies, including juice, bread, butter and eggs, and as she lives in the main house adjoining the Studio, she’ll be around if there’s anything else you need help with. You’re welcome to wander around the six acres of beautiful woodland and fields that make up Orchard Flower Farm, and when you’ve had your fill of scenic walks, Penzance is 10 minutes’ walk away with fantastic shops and restaurants, as well as Linda’s print gallery. The nearest beach is just a further 10 minutes’ walk.

Our guests say...

Our stay at Orchard Flower farm was a delight from start to finish. Everything we could possibly wish for was to be found - the pot of bramble jam was a particular treat! Linda was a wonderful host and made our stay a very happy one.



The stay was fantastic! The place was just as described on the website and Linda, the host was extremely nice and forthcoming. We had a great time both at Orchard Flower farm as well as in the surrounding nature.



We were looking for a perfect little weekend getaway in the middle of nowhere, something different. We were set on Cornwall so just had to find the perfect one to fit our needs. When we looked at the Orchard flower farm I think we set our hearts on it. The weekend it self was very peaceful and in a good location for Penzance, St Ives, Lands end and most of Cornwall.



Very restful stay in secluded studio. Waking up to the sounds of birds was great. Only a short distance to town and coast - and fine for cycling. Host was lovely and studio itself was clean and cosy.



Relaxed, peaceful holiday. Very quiet and private. Host easy to get hold of and quick to respond.



WOW WOW WOW........ The Studio is all about R&R and what a stunning location! Linda is an amazing host very welcoming, the views are stunning and the cabin is gorgeous!!



Lovely calm and scenic location, really welcoming host who made our stay very special



We couldnt have asked for anything more, my one only comment would be prepared for a narrow driveway, other than that in every aspect the property excelled. The studio was the perfect mix of fashion and comfort, it gave us a home from home to explore the beautiful local area that we couldn't wait to get back to. Everything from the decor, to the surrounding wild garden and wonderful host Linda made for an unforgettable experience that we cant wait to visit again!



We stayed for 4 nights for our mini moon :) was lovely to get away and relax after a crazy few weeks



We had a lovely stay, in an interesting part of Cornwall-Very interesting to know the history of the accommodation (a print works). And the history of the owners. It had a special touch, much more inviting than a stay in a hotel. The fact it was previously someone's home/work space made it feel like we were helping towards a person's business by staying there. Which I prefer to handing out my money to big hotel/motel chains.



We had a wonderful stay at The Studio for our honeymoon. The location was perfect for us, quiet, secluded and very picturesque.



A wonderful apartment, full of light and very well equipped.



Our stay was fantastic. Very relaxing. Beautiful place. Linda is a lovely host.



Lovely, airy , stylish accommodation. Well appointed kitchen and bathroom. Beautiful view, and delightful visiting cats and dogs.



We stayed for 4 nights in February and it was absolutely lovely. The house is beautiful, the kitchen has everything you need, very comfy bed, modern clean bathroom, the veranda had a great view over the hills and the stream bubbling a hundred yards away made for a great atmosphere. You don't notice that the place is connected to the main house and it feels very secluded and private. Linda, the owner, is very friendly and helpful with suggestions of where to go. She has 2 lovely dogs and some cats, which made an appearance most days (keep the door closed and they won't bother you though!). It's a short walk to penzance which has local shops, pubs and restaurants, and we ventured out to St Ives, St Michael's Mount and the amazing views at Kynance Cove (strongly recommend it!) It's no surprise it was listed in the Telegraph in their top 4 romantic UK breaks!



"Lovely. Host very welcome. Nice touches"

Meet your hosts

From owner Linda:

"The building was originally designed to house my late husband’s (fine art printer Hugh Stoneman) printing studio. After his death in 2005 I turned the space into a private art gallery. I then moved the gallery into Penzance and turned 2/3 of the building into this amazing space to let for holidays. I live in the adjoining house but the studio is totally private. I no longer run the gallery as my daughter has taken it over.

I have lived at Orchard Flower farm for over 30 years and have built and renovated it including the "wild" garden."

Booking Terms

Canopy & Stars low price promise

Book with us in confidence knowing you won’t find that place cheaper elsewhere. All of the prices we display are set and matched by our Owners. (In this world of foreign currency, we do have to say 'subject to exchange rates' for some of our European places.)

What does ‘from price’ mean?

Our ‘from price’ is based on a four night stay in low season and designed to help you to compare different prices across our collection. Some of our Owners vary their nightly rates and check in days throughout the year, so it may differ from the rate quoted below the calendar. It is quite common (although by no means universal) for places to charge a little more in peak season or for shorter stays, to cover changeover costs. Consider booking longer stays during the cooler months if you’re looking for the lowest nightly rates.

2.2 Amendments and cancellations can only be accepted in accordance with the booking conditions of the Owner of your Arrangements. The Owner may charge the cancellation or amendment charges shown in their booking conditions (which may be as much as 100% of the cost of the Arrangements and will normally increase closer to the date of departure). The Owner may charge cancellation or amendment charges in accordance with its own booking conditions, however for the sake of convenience only, we have outlined the Owner’s charges at clause 2.3 and 2.4 below. Please note that these are the Owner’s own cancellation and amendments charges, not Canopy & Stars’, and therefore the Owner may vary their charges as they wish, without notice to us. The correct charges will be notified to you at the time of your cancellation or amendments.

2.3.1 Cancellation by you at any time will result in your deposit being forfeited, as all deposits are non-refundable.


2.3.2 All monies paid for a holiday (deposit and balance) are non-refundable within 10 weeks before check in date.

2.4 Owner’s General Amendment Charges:

2.4.1 Alterations to your Booking can only be made more than 10 weeks prior to the check in date, after which time alterations will be treated as cancellation. All alterations are subject to availability and may incur a £30 adminstration fee.


2.4.2 Differences in the total amount payable resulting from alterations will be refunded to you in the case of a decrease in price and paid by you in the case of increases in price.

3. Changes and Cancellations by the Owner

We will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if the Owner needs to make a significant change to your confirmed Arrangements or to cancel them. We will also liaise between you and the Owner in relation to any alternative Booking offered by the Owner but we will have no further liability to you.


4. Complaints

Because the contract for your Booking is between you and the Owner, any queries or concerns should be addressed to them. In the event that you have any complaint about your stay, please notify the Owner as soon as possible. If you don’t follow this procedure there will be less opportunity for the Owner to investigate and resolve your complaint and so make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Delays may also mean that amount of compensation you may be entitled to may be reduced. Whether or not your complaint is dealt with satisfactorily, please also contact us as we appreciate all feedback. It’s important to us and the Owner to know that you’ve enjoyed your stay or if anything could have been improved.


5. Pricing

Canopy & Stars reserve the right to amend advertised prices at any time on behalf of the Owner. We also reserve the right to correct errors in both advertised and confirmed prices.Special note: changes and errors sometimes occur.


6. Information & Accuracy

The information and prices shown on this website are varied from time to time and may change between the time you first view a property and make a Booking. You should check that all the details are as you expect prior to making a Booking. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the properties (including the features and extras available) may be incorrectly described and/or priced. If we discover this is the case after you have made a Booking, we reserve the right to contact you with details of the correct information and/or pricing and will give you the option to:

(1) proceed with the Booking based on the correct information and/or pricing, which may require the payment of an additional amount by you;


(2) subject to availability, change your booking dates to dates when the pricing can be honoured ad so no additional charge to you. In the event that a lower price can be offered for alternative dates then the difference would be refunded;


(3) cancel the Booking. If we do not receive your instructions within 5 days of contacting you, we reserve the right to cancel your Booking without liability to you.


7. Our Responsibility for your Booking

Your contract is with the Owner and its booking conditions apply. As Agent, we accept no responsibility for the actual provision of the Booking. Our responsibilities are limited to making the Booking in accordance with your instructions and acting properly in accordance with our legal duties as an Agent. We accept no responsibility for any information about the Booking that we pass on to you in good faith. However, in the event that we are found liable to you on any basis whatsoever, our maximum liability to you is limited to twice the cost of your Booking (or the appropriate proportion of this if not everyone on the Booking is affected). We do not exclude or limit any liability for death or personal injury that arises as a result of our negligence or that of any of our employees whilst acting in the course of their employment.


8. Pets

Not all properties accept pets. If you wish to take your pet on holiday, please advise us before booking and we can check whether pets are accepted at the property. You must obtain the prior consent of the Owner before taking any pets to the property. A nightly charge may be made by the Owner for each pet and additional terms may apply.


9. VAT

Many of the Owners of properties in the Canopy & Stars portfolio are not registered for VAT in which case no tax is payable. Where VAT is payable, the tax is included in the advertised holiday rental price.


10. Visa, passport and health requirements.

Unless you tell us otherwise, we assume that all members of your party are British citizens who hold or will hold full British passports valid for the entire duration of the Arrangements you chose to purchase. Information on visa, passport and health requirements, where given and applicable, is so given on this basis. Requirements may change and you are therefore strongly recommended to check the up to date position with the Owner of the Booking, Passport Office, appropriate embassy or consulate or your doctor as applicable in good time before the commencement of your holiday.


11. Insurance

You are strongly recommended to take out personal travel insurance for all members of your party. It is your responsibility to ensure that the insurance you purchase is adequate and appropriate for your particular needs. Please read your policy details and take them with you on holiday.


12. Special requests

If you have any special requests (for example dietary requirements, cots or room location), please let us know at the time of booking. We will pass on all such requests to the Owner, but unfortunately, we can't guarantee that they will be met and we will have no liability to you if they are not.


13. Group Bookings

Not all Owners accept Bookings for a single sex group (for example, a stag or hen party). Guests wanting to make such a Booking should check with us beforehand to enable us to check whether the Owner is prepared to accept the Booking. We will then advise you accordingly. In event that an Owner does not accept this type of Booking then it is with regret, that the Booking may be cancelled and cancellation fees may apply. It is the Guest’s responsibility to enquire with Canopy & Stars and/or check on our website beforehand to make sure that this type of booking is permitted.


14. Maximum Numbers

Please note that except by prior arrangement confirmed in writing, only the number of persons specified on a booking confirmation may occupy  a property. Most owners reserve the right to refuse admittance or revoke a booking if this condition is not observed and you are unlikely to receive any refund.


15. Your Responsibilities

Please note that you have a contract with the Owner of the property. As such you are under a responsibility to behave in a proper, appropriate and legal manner whilst staying at the property with due respect to the Owner, the Property and other guests and their property. You are responsible for informing the Owner of any losses or damage to the property as soon as possible. Please note that you will be liable to pay the Owner for any losses or damage to the property caused by you or a member of your party (except reasonable wear and tear). Some Owners will also require damage deposits. You must also leave the property by the check-out time specified on your booking. If any guest behaves inappropriately or improperly (of which the Owner will be the final judge on their Property), or illegally, the Owner reserves the right to ask the guest and their party (at their discretion) to leave the Property before the end of the holiday period and/or refuse any future bookings from you.  Any refund for so doing will be at the entire discretion of the Owner. In addition, the Owner reserves the right to sue the guest for any loss, damage or injury caused to the Owner, the Property or to other guests and/or their property. As agent, we will have no liability to you in these circumstances.
