Mynheer Farm is set in the hamlet of Higher Ninnis. Surrounded by fields and old mine workings, you can be sure you’ll be staying in the heart of rural Cornwall.
A five minute walk along the lane is Gwennap Pit, John Wesley’s open-air amphitheatre, now a World Heritage Site. A few minutes walk in the other direction, you’ll find a village pub and a bit further on other amenities such as a butcher, post office and a grocery store.
Much to do
Falmouth, Truro, Newquay and St Ives are all within a 15-30 minute drive, easily accessed via the A30 which is merely 5 minutes from us. The Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan and National Maritime Museum are also within easy reach.
All four main towns have a full range of activities to suit all. From family attractions, beaches to watersports, mining history and many restaurants & bars, there’s always plenty to do – and if you’re stuck, just ask!
If it’s peace and tranquility that you prefer, there’s an abundance of local destinations. Seal watching off the North Cliffs, the idilic beaches of the south coast and the Minack Theatre are three such places that should fit the bill. All are easy to find and we’ll help you with directions should you require.

How to find us
Our address is: Mynheer Farm, Higher Ninnis, Redruth TR16 5HD. Most sat-navs will get you within 100m and often take you past the gate.
From the M5 at Exeter take the A30 signposted for Bodmin and then continue to Redruth. Just after Chiverton Cross Roundabout take the first exit signed Helston & Scorrier. Pass under a railway bridge and at the mini roundabout take a right. Continue past a fuel station and then at a mini roundabout go straight on, up the hill.
At the top of the hill, and at another mini roundabout, turn left for Falmouth and Helson on the A393. Follow this road for a short distance and take the first left at the mini roundabouts, signed St Day. Follow the road for around 2 miles before turning sharp right at the bottom of the hill just before the Star Inn – look out for the brown sign for Gwennap Pit.
After around half a mile on the left you will arrive at Mynheer Farm.
