Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. Holifield Hostel, Gweek, Helston, Cornwall, sleeps 2 - 20 in 3 bedrooms.
Holifield Farm Project was founded in 1992 as an education centre, providing a forest school and a day service for adults with learning disabilities. The hostel was completed in 2018 with over 90% of its materials coming from recycled sources, including wood salvaged after the Falmouth Docks fire, and heated with solar PV.
Holifield Hostel sleeps up to 20 guests in 3 bunkrooms of different sizes, either available by the room or with exclusive sue of the whole building. This is a venue and setting perfect for rest and relaxation or adventure and fun days out with family and friends, community groups and groups from other organisations.
There's plenty of space for cooking and socialising in the large vegetarian communal kitchen and dining area, or spend time relaxing in the bright and spacious sun-room. Function rooms can also be hired out for special interest group activities and events.
The hostel is fully accessible for wheelchair users and guests with mobility impairments — we have a lift, ramps, disabled parking, grab rails, wide doors, wet rooms and a hoist.
The main social space is a large dining hall which has catered for up to 50 people in the past, and is fully kitted for self-catering. In here is a piano, a sound system, a video projector, TV, and a freely available espresso machine.
In the conservatory is a pool table and table tennis, and outside we have a large outdoor shelter (Pizza Dock) with a pizza oven (pizzas available to order), picnic tables, BBQ, and a big firepit with firewood ready to reserve. Our new sauna will be up here too!
Holifield Hostel sits within 20 acres, with great views and home to a wonderful range of wildlife. There's a woodland trail through the ancient woods, down to the lily pond, up and along the stream, and looping around the Tumulus field. We're by the Helford estuary and so very close to excellent beaches along the Lizard and to the west as well as big stretches of broadleaf woodland.
