The Vean, Caerhays Estate, St Austell, Cornwall

Sleeps 4 - 16 8 Bedrooms 16 Dining

Large luxury house sleeping 16 for holidays, celebrations and reunions near many attractions and the Cornish coast

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. The Vean, Caerhays Estate, St Austell, Cornwall, sleeps 4 - 16 in 8 bedrooms.

The Vean is a beautiful restored Georgian country house nestled in the wooded Porthluney valley. A tranquil setting with views over Caerhays Castle Gardens. This idyllic rural location is less than a mile from the beaches of Porthluney and Portholland in Cornwall.

The house has 8 luxurious en-suite double bedrooms, sleeping 16 and with a stunning dining room which can seat up to 16 people. The Vean makes the perfect exclusive self-catering retreat for that special getaway throughout the year.

Although we are located in glorious peaceful countryside we have two beautiful beaches to use and enjoy. Porthluney Beach which is a family friendly beach with the beautiful backdrop of Caerhays Castle and East & West Portholland, which is about two miles in the opposite direction, also provides good family beaches.

We are also an ideal location for walking holidays and exploring the coastal path of Cornwall. Sailing wooden boats on the Fal River is another adventure along with boat based wildlife spotting trips with Fal Wooden Boats. Activities are many and various as well as visiting the Great Gardens of Cornwall and all the other Cornish attractions.
