    Guy, the owner was very welcoming and helpful when we arrived. A very kind thought was the local carton of milk and two Bonios for our dogs. The facilities in the kitchen were better than our own home! It was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The décor was very pleasant with some local paintings etc of the area on the wall. The bed was very comfortable which is often a challenge when away from home and the bathroom was palatial with both bath and shower, brilliant. Our dogs felt very at home as did we! Although the barn is up a narrow lane, it was still easy to get to wherever you wanted to go and the peace and quiet of the surrounding countryside was wonderful. We would strongly recommend this holiday venue and hope to return one day.

The property

A beautiful barn conversion set in rural surrounds within a short drive of Praa Sands makes this a great destination for holidays.

Within two miles of the sandy stretch of beach at Praa Sands, this idyllic barn conversion makes the perfect bolthole for a couple wanting a romantic escape.

All on one floor, the accommodation is spacious and thoughtfully laid out.

Off the hallway, you have a smart bathroom with bath and separate double shower, a dreamy kingsize bedroom and at the far end a wonderfully welcoming open plan living space and kitchen with dining area that boasts french doors to the garden and a fantastic wood burning stove.

The lawned garden is enclosed by a low-level wall and fencing allowing peaceful relaxation after a busy day exploring.Stretch your legs along the various footpaths from the rural spot in Trescowe, or jump in the car to see some of the beautiful coves along the south west coast between Mounts Bay and Porthleven.

For true seaside lovers, why not hop on the branch line train from nearby St Erth and while away a day or two in St Ives where traditional Cornish charm meets upmarket eateries and shops, with some of the most beautiful sandy beaches around West Cornwall.

Guests at Sampson Barn will not be disappointed by the variety on offer from this peaceful, rural hideaway home.

About the location


Marazion 4.5 miles ; Helston 6 miles ; Porthleven 5 miles

The village of Praa Sands sits on the south coast in between Helston and Marazion. Praa Sands is known for its mile-long sandy beach and excellent surfing conditions. There is a bar/restaurant overlooking the beach – the perfect spot for lunch with a view or sunset drinks – a Post Office and general stores, beach cafe with fish & chips, and a beach/surf shop stocked with everything you could need for a great day at the beach. Praa Sands is also home to a Golf and Country Club, from where the most wonderful sea vista can be enjoyed whilst you play. Just inland from the beach is Pengersick Castle, the tower of which dates back to the 16th century. It is said that Pengersick is haunted, and that the ghost of a monk has been seen wandering the grounds! The house at Pengersick is rumoured to be the birth place of John Carter, the self styled King of Prussia and a tunnel which leads from the house to the beach was apparently once used by smugglers.
