The property

Scenic views sighting the sea on Cornwall's Riviera coastline can be admired from this beautiful converted barn. Nestled slightly inland amidst peaceful countryside on a working farm in the hamlet of Trethurgy, Leghorn combines excellent accommodation standards with a tranquil setting for a relaxing break yet is a short drive to the long sandy beaches at Pentewen, Porthpean and Par (dog-friendly) and some of the county's major tourist attractions. Well placed for a varied holiday experience, the renowned Eden Project is within walking distance; Charlestown, famous for its collection of tall ships, is a 15 minute drive whilst the exclusive waterfront town of Fowey; the cathedral city of Truro and the charming fishing village of Mevagissey are a 30 minute drive.

Fun filled days on the coast can end with a soak in the hot tub, a barbecue on the sheltered deck patio or beside the warm glow of the stylish wood burner during the cooler months. The interior has immense rustic appeal with a contemporary kitchen and two luxurious en-suite bathrooms adding a touch of glamour. A pet sitting service is available by prior arrangement with the owners who live in the neighbouring farmhouse and dog towels and bowls are provided.

Pet owners, walkers and cyclists can embark on the scenic foot and cycle paths of the Clay Trails and children will love to meet the resident Leghorn and Black Rock chickens, ducks, geese and pigs. It is ideal for larger groups when booked with the attached residence, Black Rock , which can accommodate four guests.

About the location

ST AUSTELL

Pentewan 4 miles ; Charlestown 1.5 miles ; Truro 15 miles

Just a short drive from the pretty south Cornish coast, St Austell is one of the largest towns in Cornwall. The landscape around St Austell is rich in kaolin (china clay) and this once made the region extremely prosperous. Today, the china clay industry is in decline and tourism has become the mainstay of income for St Austell and its surrounding parishes. St Austell town centre is home to a range of independent and well-known shops, an undercover shopping centre and a Local Produce Market, which takes place every Friday and Saturday. There is also a range of excellent restaurants, cafes and inns – from traditional country pubs to 2 AA rosette fine dining. Just outside St Austell is the iconic Eden Project, as well as the award-winning Lost Gardens of Heligan, Kidzworld, and the Wheal Martyn China Clay Museum. There are some beautiful beaches in this area, too – many with good kayaking conditions – and many miles of coastal footpath to explore. The mainly traffic-free Pentewan Cycle Trail runs from St Austell to Pentewan; here you can enjoy a bite to eat at the village pub or beach burger shack before making your return journey to St Austell. One of St Austell’s main events is the Torchlight Carnival which takes place each November – and of course, the World Pasty Championships, which are held at the Eden Project each March!

Note: Max 4 adults. No smoking
