    The Vean is our largest property, 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 Porthluney beach. The house has 8 luxurious en-suite double bedrooms, sleeping 16 and with a stunning dining room.
