    “The River Barns complex has been constructed to a high standard, is well laid out and is in a good location for touring around the area.”

    5 River Barns is very impressive, it is well proportioned, was very clean and contains everything you need for a relaxing holiday whatever the weather. We found it to be perfect for us, the only slight criticism was that the bed base seems to be too high in the middle which creates a ridge in the mattress, which takes a couple of nights to get used to. However this did not detract from us having a great weeks holiday. We would thoroughly recommend River Barns.

River Barns

As their names suggest, they are situated by a small river and are approximately one and a half miles from the sea at Portreath on Cornwall's north coast. These well-thought out properties have some lovely, quirky features, with a Cornish-themed décor, feature walls and wrapped doors, as well as charming Cornish-themed print on the staircase, which you can admire as you head up to the first floor of each property. Each property has a contemporary style, providing comfortable, quality accommodation for a group looking to escape to a peaceful hamlet, close to the north Cornwall coast and its array of sandy beaches. Guest are welcome to use the on-site facilities including a hair and beauty salon, an acupuncture clinic and a luxury range of hot tubs. The hamlet of Bridge has a tea room and a restaurant, while the town of Redruth is three miles away, with a wider selection of eateries and amenities, as well as Cornwall Gold and Tolgus Mill, Moseley Heritage Museum, Kresen Kernow museum and Heartlands World Heritage Site.

About the location


Truro 14 miles; St Ives 15 miles.

With its sheltered harbour, beautiful Portreath was, in the 1800s, a hive of activity and industry as a major tin-exporting port. Today, the village attracts visitors from around the world with its wild and rugged coastline. High cliffs, secluded coves and sandy, surf-washed beaches typify the area while all around are reminders of the area's rich industrial heritage. Portreath offers a small fishing harbour, shops, a number of pubs, three cafés and a Chinese restaurant, while its safe, sheltered sandy beach is a popular attraction. For a great day out, visit the cathedral city of Truro with its cobbled streets, shopping centre, theatre, museum and great restaurants, just 14 miles away, or travel a few miles along the coast and follow the vast expanse of sandy beach, which leads down to Hayle and on to St Ives. A delightful holiday location.
