A stunning barn conversion set within beautiful countryside, this property is immaculately decorated and perfectly positioned to explore the beaches and attractions all around.

One of four cottages overlooking the shared lawn, on a family run farm, Foundry is an idyllic choice. As you first glimpse the stone-built barn conversion, you get just a hint of the immaculate presentation which awaits inside. The southwestern tip of Cornwall is often considered the most beautiful and this property is as stunning as the scenery which surrounds it. St Erth sits between the north and south coasts meaning you are never far from golden sands and blue seas.

The well designed, contemporary property has many modern touches and an abundance of space. You'll be greeted by a traditional stone facade, whilst inside, pretty pastel blues and neutral tones provide a soft space in which to unwind. Six people can happily find tranquillity and peace in this spacious and sumptuous home. The large private patio outside and the two lounges inside give plenty of options for moments of relaxation.

Visit the Tate Gallery in St Ives (7 miles), then explore the many shops and restaurants which hug the shores of the numerous bays and beaches in the town. Marazion is 5 miles away and is the starting point for an adventure across the causeway to St Michael's Mount. If the tide prevents you from walking across the ancient cobbles then there is always the ferry to carry you across to explore the castle and sub-tropical gardens. For the young, or young at heart, Flambards amusement park is 11 miles away in Helston and features a Victorian village as well as sky-high thrill rides.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Excellent barn conversion in rural spot but close to all amenities. Grade A+

Reviewed by Jennifer 5th April 2019

This was our second stay at the foundry and we loved it just as much as our first stay. This cottage is something you always hope for but rarely find. Comfy beds, comfy sofas, powerful and hot showers, spacious, light & airy all within the most beautiful setting. Lots of lovely touches too.

Great place to stay convenient to stations to St ives and beaches.

Another fantastic family holiday in a beautiful cottage!

Reviewed by Gill 5th October 2018

It felt like home, not a holiday property. It was comfortable and the cream tea welcome was a lovely surprise. The location is ideal for north & south coasts. Local buses and trains are excellent & would be very useful in high summer when parking can be at a premium in places like St Ives. 4 of us got day returns on the train from St Erth to St IveRead mores for 8 .

Perfect in every way. Peaceful with lovely outside area for eating and relaxing. Immaculately furnished and an ideal location for visiting the surrounding area. Delicious cream tea on arrival.

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
