Charming barn conversions found in one of Cornwall's most attractive areas. An ideal base for a relaxing holiday, you are on the edge of the owner’s 100-acre sheep and arable farm.

Just 4 miles from Fowey lies Little Carminowe, one of two charming barn conversions on the edge of a 100-acre farm estate. With breathtaking views from the doorstep and an array of beaches, coves, and fishing villages nearby, it's no surprise that the surrounding area is regarded as one of Cornwall's most attractive areas. Here you'll wake up to the gentle bleating of sheep, and by night you can explore the many walking routes from the property, ending in a local family pub for a hearty meal.

Inside, the studio-style annexe feels quaint and snug, giving a real home away from home ambience. Its decor subtly nods to the countryside surroundings, with warming tones of deep reds and browns scattered throughout the otherwise modest, bright and crisp style. In the cooler months and the depths of winter, underfloor heating will keep your toes (and the rest of you) toasty while you curl up in an armchair, perhaps with the latest bestseller or just chatting about the next day's activities.

For the adventurous, head to the Lanhydrock mountain bike trails (7.5 miles from the property) and explore Bodmin Moor's rugged countryside. For more leisurely days, explore the many National Trust properties and gardens, or visit the Lost Gardens of Heligan (13 miles). The fishing villages of Fowey (5.5 miles), Looe and Polperro (both 19 miles) are also must-sees during your stay, with an abundance of waterside amenities from beaches and watersports, to restaurants with a sea view.

Great location, lovely view, outside seating area with views, perfect for a quiet getaway a good base for Fowey and the local countryside and attractions along the south coast. Good free WiFi. We would go again.

Reviewed by Meryl 8th September 2018

Lovely studio cottage. Very comfortable and all basic equipment. Lack of freezer space and small fridge limited food storage so we spent more time buying food during the week than we would normally. Very good location for visiting Cornwall. Hidden valley garden 1 mile up the road is a delight

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.
