Due to a change in policy by Port Eliot Estate we are no longer tenants at Markwell. Unfortunately the holiday cottages are permanently closed.
If you are looking for a holiday and want to contact us for suggestions we would be happy to try and help.
We would like to thank all our past guests for their support and wish everyone a successful 2023.

Enjoy wonderful Cornish holidays.
Come and stay in one of our four self catering holiday cottages near Landrake in South East Cornwall. Situated on a tranquil 400 acre working Cornish farm in the Tamar Valley ANOB. The cottages, which sleep between 2 and 6 people, have been tastefully converted from two 18th century stone barns. Each has the benefit of outstanding south-facing views of some of the finest countryside in Cornwall which also includes areas of SSSI.
Walk on the farm or venture a little further. Markwell farm is the perfect location to explore South Devon and Cornwall. Plymouth and Saltash are a short drive away. Take a walk on the magnificent South West Coastal path or the Moors of Bodmin and Dartmoor. Visit the smugglers towns of Looe and Polperro; National Trust houses of Cothele, Anthony, Saltram and Lanhydrock. The Bodmin and Wenford steam railway is a great day out for all the family or have fun on the beaches of Looe, Seaton, Downderry and Whitsand Bay.

These lovingly converted cottages have retained many of their original features. They have a wonderful south facing gardens to enjoy your morning coffee or evening wine .
