The property

The white sandy beach at Perranporth is less than a 10 minute drive from this rustic retreat, set amidst mellow countryside with recreational facilities for families. Away from the hustle and bustle, Holly Barn is located at the end of a leafy lane in a tranquil courtyard setting on a small farm complex in Goonhavern, a little under three miles from Perranporth, four miles from Newquay and 10 miles from Truro. It is home also to the owners' farmhouse and four other self-catering properties including Pine Barn.

A single storey residence backing onto large, shared lawn gardens with picnic benches and swings for children, Holly Barn caters well for families seeking relaxation and recreation. Scenic walks can commence from the front door step transporting ramblers through an unspoilt rural landscape rich in wildlife. Mile upon mile of white sand beaches, the seaside towns at Padstow and St Ives and popular visitors attractions at Eden and Blue Reef Aquarium are within a short reach.

The entrance opens onto the open plan living room, instantly welcoming with plump settees arranged around a rustic wood burner style electric fire, dining suite with garden views and a well equipped country-style kitchen. Patio doors from the living room give direct access to the garden, an excellent spot for a barbecue. A pristine bathroom, shower room and three well appointed bedrooms complete the accommodation. Positioned at the end of a long hall, the double bedroom is romantically inspired with amethyst coloured fabrics patterned with pretty vintage florals. There is parking for two cars.

About the location

PERRANPORTH

Newquay 9 miles; Truro 9.5 miles.

Perranporth, a beautiful Cornish coastal town, lies in the heart of Poldark Country, the setting for the novels of Winston Graham who lived in Perranporth in the 1930s. Perranporth offers plenty of traditional pubs and shops, plus a classic bucket-and-spade beach that is lifeguarded in summer, overlooked by craggy rocks and a wonderful coastal path. Once known as the source of the finest tin, the community still retains reminders of the rich heritage with abandoned pump houses, mine shafts and workers’ cottages. The local Blue Hills Museum and Perranzabuloe Folk Museum are both well worth a visit to understand the fascinating history of this coastal area. Further afield are the miles of sandy beaches at Crantock and Holywell Bay, and the breathtaking coastal walks around St Agnes, much of it owned by the National Trust. A perfect holiday base in Cornwall, with an abundance of activities to suit everyone.
