    “We had issues with the heating, cleanliness after a previous visit to The Barn.”

    We spoke to their manager who was helpful and friendly and our most recent visit was lovely. All issues had obviously been dealt with and our stay was perfect!

The property

This pretty stone cottage and its lovely gardens, within a countryside setting are less than 10 miles from the beaches between Porthpean, Charlestown and Carlyon Bay.

With the essence of country appeal the drive along the tree lined lane to the cottage is just the start of the adventure.

Nestling in a pretty rural spot, the inspirational Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan are days out not to miss.

Peacefully located down a narrow lane amongst farmland and lightly wooded countryside, with only the occasional passing vehicle to disturb the silence, you are able to relax in the privacy of large secluded gardens, perfect for the family pet. Reversed accommodation takes advantage of far-reaching views over the landscape from the principal rooms.

Timber beams and trusses are rustic features of the main living rooms, with its delightful triple aspect, light streams into the lounge on three sides.

Recline in comfort, warming your toes beside an open fire in the cooler months, you will feel completely at home.

Downstairs the bedrooms are attractively arranged and a small garden room annexed to the main bedroom is an added bonus.

Central to the whole of Cornwall, touring is easy with all parts of the county within range.

Goss Moor is a 480 hectare National Nature Reserve, the largest surviving remnant of the Mid-Cornwall moors.

It is a unique wild and undeveloped environment to explore, get you hiking boots or bike out and enjoy.

The Eden Project, Newquay, St Austell and Mevagissey are within a 20 minutes drive.

Local shops, post office and a pub can be found 1 mile away in St Dennis.

There is ample parking.

About the location


Charlestown 2 miles; Carlyon Bay 3 miles; Mevagissey 6 miles; Fowey 8 miles.

The old market town of St Austell, just a mile or two from the south coast, is famous as the historic centre of the china clay mining industry. Today, its many beaches and its sub-tropical gardens provide plenty to see and do. The wonderful Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project are perfect for a family day out, and a little further afield Caerhays Castle provides a stunning backdrop to Porthluny Cove. On the edge of town, St Austell Brewery offers tours of the Victorian brewing equipment and a chance to sample the local beer, and for those looking for surf and sand, St Austell Bay has several beaches to choose from - Porthpean, Carlyon Bay, Pentewan, Polkerris - the last offering a variety of water-sports. As well as a small shingle beach, Charlestown, a pretty, historic port, often has wooden sailing ships in the harbour, and is popular as a film location. A little further afield are Fowey and its beautiful estuary to the east and the fishing port of Mevagissey to the west. With lots to do and something to keep the whole family entertained, St Austell is a great year-round destination.
