Straight out of an Enid Blyton adventure, The Barn is in the heart of a working farm - piglets, lambs and chickens abound and it's a mere bridlepath's walk away from Point waterfront.
Living

The living room is a generous open plan space with a country kitchen at the far end. Exposed original rafters and a state of the art Nordpeis Norwegian wood burner in the centre of the room add to the rustic feel. Spend cosy evenings in watching old films by the fire and relax after a day's dog walking through the Cornish countryside. With sheepskins to snuggle in produced from the barn's very own sheep, a giant TV and DVD player you'll struggle to leave this cosy retreat.

Eating

The Barn has a proper country kitchen but with all the mod cons you could wish for in this luxury retreat in Cornwall. You couldn't be better placed to grab lots of locally sourced farm produce like freshly laid eggs and joints of sumptuous lamb to get slow-roasting in the range cooker. The wood burner has a useful hot plate for toasting teacakes - the perfect way to bring traditional charm to your stay.

Sleeping

An upside down retreat means the bedrooms are downstairs. The master bedroom, which looks out onto the terrace garden, has a deliciously king sized bed. Opposite is the cosy children's bedroom which can be made up with two single beds - the room is petite, but very beautiful!

Bathing

Downstairs is a simply fabulous wetroom style bathroom with a shower to scrub off the country air and sea salt!

Outside Space

The Barn's first floor sundeck is perfect for whiling away the time with a glass or two of fizz whilst looking out over the old apple orchard. There is also a rear ground floor terrace garden surrounded by natural Cornish willow fence - a secure, enclosed and private spot ideal for basking in the sunshine or using the BBQ to cook up an al fresco storm. There are spare stables for you to store bikes and kayaks too. The Barn is in the heart of working farm Lower Tresithick and the owners are happy for you to run free-range across the fields, though please be aware of the farm animals - especially if you are bringing your dog.

The owners use all their own sustainable wood from the farm so why not try your hand at becoming a country wood cutter for the day, tone up those muscles and split your own... failing that, a pre-cut wood store is available for you to fill your basket and be on your way!

Access

Please note that The Barn is accessed via a long, private unmade lane and is situated on a working farm for that perfect, peaceful idyllic getaway.

Parking

The Barn has a spacious parking area just for guests with room for your own John Deer should you want to travel in style! On the outside of the property, a light will be left on for you to see your way.

WiFi

The Barn has WiFi, so if you need to keep in touch with the outside world you can.

Dogs

A dog is very welcome. We charge £30 per dog per week or short break.

'More than exceeded our expectations in location, comfort, warmth of welcome, amenities and beautifully fresh and clean. Perfect central location for easily accessing all main tourist destinations eg St Michael's Mount, Land's End, Penzance, St Ives, the Roseland, Eden Project and Heligan. Great surrounding countryside walks too and lovely farmland activities for our two children. Loved it!' - April 2017
