Little Menherion, who prefers to be known as Little M, is our own little piece of Cornish Paradise where we are working hard to create a lifestyle that better reflects who we are, who we want to be and how we want to spend our time.
We purchased Little M and became custodians of her back at the end of 2013. She had been steadily grown from basic fields over 25+ years by the previous owners and although a little overgrown and in dire need of some TLC when we took over the reins, she had something magical about her. We walked around for the first time like little children on their first visit to a sweet shop. We both knew this was the one… and we haven’t looked back since.
Little M is a 12+ acre smallholding in the centre of everywhere, Cornwall but it is so tranquil that you would be forgiven for thinking you were in the middle of nowhere. She is divided in two by the lane that brings you to the property. On the southern side is a wild space: 6+ acres of fledgling woodland and a 2 acre meadow affectionately known as playing field. All of which guests are welcome to explore. The northern side of the lane is where the main happenings at Little M take place, including the cottage that is our home where we live with our two gorgeous dogs Brady & Tux. It is where we invest most of our time right now, as we develop the property and grounds of our amazing smallholding. It is where you’ll find orchards old and new; the cottage garden and barns; the workshop and artist studio; the stream and mature woodlands; and where the unique glamping experiences are being built all set within their own private spaces.
The spirit at Little M is one of discovery and experimentation, exploring how to live sustainably, make a living from and on our land, balancing cultivation with re-wilding of the property, providing edible produce, a wildlife habitat and a lovely place to live & work.
