A Little About Bake Farm

The Eastley’s have been in South East Cornwall going back many generations and at Bake Farm for over 50 years. Edward Trelawny of the famous Cornish Trelawny family built the farmhouse at Bake Farm back in 1610 and he placed the Trelawny coat of arms on the farmhouse wall to commemorate the building. Unusually for a farm house the building is ‘T’ shaped and has two staircases, possibly one being for Edward’s staff the other for him and his family.

The latest Edward and his wife Doreen now run a small, but effective farming operation here at Bake farm rearing cattle for beef and dairy produce as well as sheep providing for delicious free range Cornish lamb. The Eastley family have been welcoming bed & breakfast guests to Bake Farm since 1965, many returning year after year drawn to the peace and tranquillity of the beautiful location and of course Doreen’s Aga cooked breakfasts and homemade cake.
