The property

A romantic hideaway for two, Penhale Vean is a beautiful barn conversion with super country views.

Arranged on one level, the stylish interior is contemporary and is finished to a very high standard with slate floors, vaulted ceilings and exposed timber beams. Tucked away in a rural spot, next to the owners' home and just one near neighbour, this cosy bolthole is ideal for a restful break in any season.

Penhale Vean is conveniently placed near the main Falmouth/Penzance route and is perfectly located for exploring this lovely part of Cornwall. Nearby Helston, the gateway to the Lizard Peninsula, is great for picking up everyday provisions or visiting the traditional pubs and inns.

Porthleven, a pretty fishing port on the south coast, is now a recognised foodie destination with Jude Kereama's (BBC2 Great British Menu) Kota restaurants the recent opening of Rick Steins' restaurant with fantastic views over the harbour.

Porthleven is also home to several galleries, shops and coffee houses.

Dotted with delightful fishing villages, pretty coves, sandy beaches and amazing walking we recommend Kynance Cove, Mullion, Coverack or Cadgwith for postcard prettiness.

Forming the northern boundary to the Lizard Peninsula is the Helford River offering a Swallows and Amazons landscape of wooded valleys and creeks with boat trips and hire available from the twin villages of Helford and Helford Passage.

A short drive away is Godolphin House which is a 15th Century Tudor house where you'll find displays of armour, weapons, old horse-drawn vehicles and maps.

Bring a picnic and take a romantic stroll around the enchanting gardens. Step inside and you will find the kitchen is well equipped with all the mod cons to conjure up a culinary delight before cuddling up on the comfy sofa and watching TV.

Patio doors lead onto the outside sitting area which is a perfect spot for sunshine dining or an evening tipple or why not enjoy a lazy breakfast in bed overlooking the pretty enclosed front garden.

A light and spacious pristine shower room completes the inside of this wonderful holiday home.

Access to this property is via approx 10 steps (handrail) which can be viewed in picture 3.

About the location


Porthleven 2 miles ; Helston 3 miles ; Penzance 10 miles.

A peaceful, rural village located in between Helston and Penzance, Breage is home to the 12th century St Breaca church – and on Tregonning Hill, the highest point in the village, are the remains of an ancient settlement. During the 19th century, Breage was an important mining centre, producing considerable amounts of tin and copper. Today, the village has a small but welcoming community, a lovely pub, playing fields and a village hall. The much-loved harbour town of Porthleven is just a short drive away, with its various waterside inns and restaurants – and the glorious stretch of golden sand at Praa Sands beach is just 3 miles along the coast.

Note: Babies welcome, regretfully no children over the age of two years - cot not supplied
