  • "We had a fantastic 4 night stay which was booked very last minute - the lady who took the booking at Sykes Cottages was absolutely brilliant!"

    2 Pencoose Barns was a fantastic cottage - exactly what we needed and the remote setting and views were stunning. SATNAV was a bit awry but we got there in the end although this would have been trickier to find in the dark! The facilities were great and the space was just perfect - better than expected. One bit of feedback as an observation was that the hot water was scalding so care required when washing hands and showering but apart from that a great experience and an amazing base to explore Cornwall - which we did and we were exceptionally lucky with glorious sunshine for the duration - would definitely book again :)

The property

Truro 4.7 miles.

Located just six-miles west of Truro and well-placed for discovering the north and south coasts of Cornwall, Pencoose Barn 2 is a wonderful character stone barn conversion.

Reached via a rough farm track away from any noise, Pencoose Barn 2 is set within an idyllic location, commanding beautiful views of the countryside, and is an ideal retreat for family and friends seeking country walks, dog friendly activities and Cornish scenery.

The property enjoys a reverse-level layout, so either take the external slate steps up to the first floor, or travel up the open-tread spiral staircase from the bedroom area, to be welcomed into the lofty open-plan living space.

The apex ceiling is supported by traditional, exposed beams, with a large ornate woodburning stove adding further character, along with amazing antique window features.

Relax on the large corner sofa in front of the curved TV with surround sound, converse at the breakfast bar in the kitchen with a drink, or gather at the dining area for a delicious meal.

Down on the ground floor, discover three lovely bedrooms, with the master bedroom hosting a king-size bed, TV and an en-suite shower room, with another king-size and a twin room served by the family bathroom.

Spend time out on the beautiful slate patio, with the lovely flowers and shrubs on the lawned areas presenting a pretty backdrop, dine alfresco here or begin your day with a morning coffee and spectacular country views.

The city of Truro is nearby, spend a day here walking the cobbled streets, catch a show at the theatre, wander around the museums and visit the Gothic cathedral, as well as trying out the many restaurants and eateries locally.

Don't miss a chance to visit the world-famous Eden Project where two huge bio-domes host a Mediterranean and a Tropical climate housing incredibly diverse plant life, it's a great day out for all the family.

The Lost Gardens of Heligan are home to wonderful outdoor sculptures set within the landscaped gardens, and are dog-friendly, so bring a picnic and enjoy a day immersed in natural beauty.

The famous surfer haven of Newquay must be visited to try the waves on Fistral Beach, book a lesson with one of the surf schools here on the beach if you're a novice, or hire equipment to get out on the waves yourself if you know how.

The Blue Reef Aquarium in Newquay is a popular attraction, along with the many bars and pubs here making up its popular evening and night life scene.

Other attractions within easy reach include the National Trust's Trelissick Gardens, the Lappa Valley, Pendennis Castle, St Mawes Castle and Healey's Cornish Cyder Barn.

Discover a beautiful remote Cornish spot at Pencoose Barn 2.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

Steeped in history and intriguing architecture there is always plenty to do and see. Just meandering through the Georgian cobbled streets is a pleasure in itself.

A wonderful day trip can be had from Truro to Falmouth along the stunning Fal estuary with many options to disembark and pick up the boat later along the scenic river trip.
