Who moved the cheese?
The Green, House and Cottages, was formerly known as Netherton Farm, a Duchy of Cornwall farm occupied by the Horrell family for many generations. The Horrells ran a successful dairy farm here for many years, which was known for making the famous Cornish Yarg cheese. Yarg was produced here until 2006 when the Horrells decided it was time to do other things. The cheese production was moved to Pengreep Farm near Truro, where just over 200 tonnes of cheese is made every year and distributed nationally and to the US market every week. Michael Horrell and his brother Ian are our closest neighbours and still own the farmland that surrounds our 14 acres. This farmland forms the foreground of our stunning views.
Before the buildings were converted to luxury self catering holiday accommodation they were used for cheese production, as a tearoom, as a shop and (I hate to say this) as a toilet block (but I’m not saying which one)!
We’ve included a little bit of history in all the accommodation to remind us of our heritage. Meanwhile, you can kick back and relax in one of our five star holiday cottages or the house and sample some delicious Yarg from our local farm shop!
