Close to the sandy beaches and spectacular coastline of Mount's Bay and the vibrant seaside town of Penzance, Long Barn Cottage is superbly located for exploring all that the far west of Cornwall has to offer. This well appointed barn conversion is set within a quiet holiday complex on the grounds of a former Tudor Manor. Tucked away on the edge of the pretty village of Gulval, it is far removed from the crowds yet near enough to spy the sea and the majestic castle topped island of St Micheal's Mount from the beautifully landscaped grounds. Offering excellent value, guests benefit from unlimited access to an indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, tennis courts and a licensed bar and restaurant (seasonal opening times apply). Long Barn Cottage presents the chance for a varied and memorable holiday experience.
Nearby Penzance has broad appeal with its seafront promenade, art galleries, ornamental gardens, shops and a tempting selection of restaurants, cafes and old inns. The local beach at Marazion is less than a 10 minute drive and is a hot favourite for families with its sandy shoreline and safe bathing waters. Take a seaside picnic hamper or delve into one of the towns' restaurants, cafes or famous pasty shop. Serious beach goers and surfers will also be drawn to Sennen, Porthcurno and St Ives with its bounty of four world-class beaches and if you have traveled this far south then the charismatic fishing village of Mousehole and the landmark attractions at Land's End and The Minack Theatre are a must.
Positioned in a peaceful spot bounded to one side by countryside, Long Barn Cottage is a pleasant, comfortable retreat and does not cost a bomb. Arranged on one level, the accommodation has a separate kitchen, a good-sized sitting/dining room with rustic wood burner style electric fire, two bedrooms and a pristine shower room. French doors lead from the sitting/dining room to a small private patio garden, well screened from view and equipped with garden furniture for alfresco meals.

About the location
St Ives 8 miles.
One of Cornwall’s most popular holiday areas. The spectacular sweep of Mount’s Bay, from the cliffside fishing village of Mousehole through Penzance and around to beautiful Marazion, hides a wealth of sandy beaches, rocky coves, winding village streets and other places to visit and explore. Connected by causeway to the shore at Marazion is the National Trust’s stunningly beautiful St Michael’s Mount with its hilltop castle and Mediterranean gardens. Walk across at low water and take one of the ferry boats back when the tide is up. Penzance with its winding streets, shops, clubs, restaurants and harbour is a must as is the jumping-off point for day trips to the Scilly Isles. The South West Coast Path passing through Penzance winds its way along the clifftops towards Land’s End. On the way, stop off for a coffee and a rest at beautiful Lamorna Cove, explore the open air Minack Theatre and marvel at the cliffs as you approach Gwennap Head. A stunning walk for those seeking solitude, exercise and some of the UK’s best coastal scenery. Penzance is the perfect holiday base. Ideally placed for exploring this land of Celtic myth and legend and with enough to do and see in the immediate area to keep all the family occupied.
