This lovingly converted barn in the Cornish countryside is the perfect peaceful retreat for two.

In amongst 20 acres of lush Cornish countryside, Mowey Cottage offers a serene sanctuary for guests eager to escape the bustle of day-to-day life. Whether you're taking a deep breath of fresh country air, basking in the clang of 14th century church bells or sipping crisp scrumpy cider at the local village pub, this converted barn is sure to satisfy your senses and calm your mind to contentment.

The combination of French doors and high ceilings allows natural light to fill the rooms and enlarge the space, whilst the exterior stonework pokes through the pristine white walls to give the cottage subtle character that culminates in a glorious granite fireplace. Adjacent to the fireplace is the surprisingly spacious multi-level garden that encloses the property for an even more intimate feeling of privacy.

Take a ramble to the sleepy village of St Buryan 1 mile away, and gaze across the rolling hills. Those keen to venture further out can take a scenic drive just 5 miles to Porthcurno beach. This gorgeous cove benefits from its own micro-climate as the cliffs protect it from winds in all directions allowing you to rest easy in its golden sands. For the most spectacular views of the South Cornwall coast, hike up from the beach to the Minack Theatre carved into the ancient Cornish cliffs, an open-air venue where you can catch a memorable performance.

The cottage is in a lovely location, it is situated in a working farm but we never had any issues with privacy or loud noises. It was lovely and peaceful. The cottage itself is beautiful, the bed could be bigger but was comfortable. Overall a lovely, relaxing stay.

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.
