    Mellan Barn was bought by 3 ladies from Sheffield. It is a superb home where lots of attention has been paid to make one feel at home. The lounge has a ceiling extending into the attic very high with large windows looking out on to the sea, to the right a superb balcony and a barbecue area.

    Mellan Barn was bought by 3 ladies from Sheffield. It is a superb home where lots of attention has been paid to make one feel at home. The lounge has a ceiling extending into the attic very high with large windows looking out on to the sea, to the right a superb balcony and a barbecue area. During our visit there were a number of ships in view waiting for pilots to take them into Falmouth harbour. It was the perfect place to relax with a good book, watch TV, or take a snooze. Off the lounge was a small room for children with toys of all decriptions. The kitchen is full of high quality appliances and equipment, all spotlessly clean and of a very high quality. One went downstairs to bed, or to the laundry area, you could bathe or shower then wrap yourself in a large fluffy white towel before spending a night in silence in a very comfortable bed. The barn is located on a very steep hill which will test the stamina of all but the very fittest and we found it easier to get in the car and travel 2 miles to St Just where there we found a superb butcher shop, it was like travelling back through time, everything you could wish for was on display, the fish and chip takeaway in Coverack was superb but in general the meals available were costly and sub standard. Never mind, we were not going to starve and our good feeling returned onece we were back inside Mellan Barns

About the location

COVERACK

St Keverne 2 miles; Helston 12 miles; Falmouth 18 miles.

Coverack is a small fishing village on the Lizard Peninsula, a few miles from Lizard Point in Cornwall, the most southerly point on mainland Britain. Coverack is a beautiful and peaceful place to escape the main tourist routes and offers a beach in the sheltered bay, which is ideal for swimming, windsurfing and kayaking, as well as shops, a Post Office, pub and restaurants. The Lizard Peninsula is a large area of spectacular coves and beaches and is noted for its rare geology and plants. From Lizard Point there are wonderful sea views from the windswept cliffs, which provide fabulous walking opportunities along this stretch of the South West Coast Path. Inland is the market town of Helston, known for its Flora Day Festival, and in Gweek is The Cornish Seal Sanctuary. Flambards theme park is just 20 minutes' drive away and just over ten miles away is the Culdrose Airfield, where once a year the public are welcome to come and meet the Fleet Air Arm, the Royal Navy’s flying force. Coverack is ideally located for exploring The Lizard Peninsula, as well as the lovely seaside towns of St Ives and Falmouth and many other beaches and pretty villages.
