Property code: 76685

Perfectly positioned to both the countryside and coast, this superbly converted ECO-friendly barn is a perfect retreat or explorer’s base to appreciate the Heart of Cornwall.

Studded within a quintessential village less than 2 miles from historic Penzance, this impressive property is the perfect base for exploring coast and countryside alike. Fill your days with adventures near and far, discovering secret coves and beautiful beaches with miles upon miles of golden sand. On your return, uncork a bottle of good wine and settle down for a relaxing evening enjoying your favourite films, delving into a bowl of buttery popcorn.

Warm and welcoming throughout, this delightful accommodation is the very essence of lodge-style living with the added bonus of being eco-friendly. Beneath the stunning timber exterior is a stylish and contemporary living space, thoughtfully accessorised with everything you need for a relaxing stay. Wake up to sunlight streaming into the lounge, grabbing a mug of coffee and settling down on the cosy sofas to enjoy the atmosphere. The garden is perfect for late lunches and sunset suppers, especially with the addition of a few lit candles and a bottle of something delicious.

Experience a true taste of Cornwall as you wander the South West Coast Path, which can be easily accessed within 1 mile. One of the most startling views is of the majestic St. Michaels Mount, a tidal island with an impressive castle, beautiful gardens and a pretty harbour dotted with charming eateries. Hop aboard a boat from Marazion, 4.5 miles away, to reach the island, or pad across the sand at low tide. A traditional cream tea is an excellent reward for doing so, heaped generously with locally sourced jam and cream.

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

Great location with many amazing places within easy reach such as Lands End, Lizard Point etc. The house was comfortable, but the heating is underfloor and hard to control but the piece of equipment missing is a tumble dryer especially now in the darker winter months.

This is a beautiful cottage. Everything has been planned out to the finest detail. It was ideal for dogs, being fully enclosed. It is also ideally situated for exploring this part of Cornwall, being close to the A30 and within easy visiting distance of the Lands peninsula or Helston and the Lizard going the other way.

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
