The property

This stunning and unique converted cow byre is situated within 2 miles of Helston.

Detached and secluded from the owners' residence the property provides a romantic couples retreat.

The interior is spread over three levels, with wood or brick flooring, high vaulted ceilings with lofted timber beams, a central brick feature fireplace and a superb mezzanine bedroom.

The entrance leads into the open plan living area and seven steps on a curving semi-spiral staircase up to the mezzanine bedroom with feature brick wall and wood flooring.

Steps from the living area leads you to the ground floor and the tastefully fitted kitchen with stone tiles and door of to the shower room.

The sitting area has a traditional wood burner within a brick feature fireplace, a dining area and doors opening to a patio which leads onto a beautiful garden, which has a mixture of lawn, paths, pond and so much more.

Artists and photographers alike will take pleasure in wandering through the owners' woods and picturesque gardens that are vibrant with colour from a profusion of lush planting.

The grounds and gardens are part of the National Garden Scheme to help raise money for charity.

Helston is lovely market town to explore or if you prefer something more local you can visit the lovely on site tea garden/tea room.

A great position for exploring south Cornwall.

Porthleven is just a 10 minute drive with its lovely harbour, fishing boats, fine restaurants, bespoke shops and the beach.

You are also within a 30 minute drive to Falmouth, The Lizard and Penzance all of which have lots to see and do.

About the location


Porthleven 3 miles; Falmouth 12 miles; Penzance 14 miles.

Helston lies at the western gateway to the Lizard Peninsula, a large area of downland fringed by a beautiful and spectacular coastline. Helston is a pleasant busy market town famous for its Flora Day Festival and the many stories and legends about the "Furry Dance" are told in the fascinating Helston Folk Museum. Nearby is the Poldark Mine, one of the best underground experiences in the south west and which tells of the widespread mining heritage of this area. Nestled in a tranquil setting is the National Seal Sanctuary on the Helford River, where there is plenty of entertainment watching seals play and feed. If it is thrill rides that excites you, then Flambards theme park will keep you amused all day and also has excellent living history experiences. Further afield is the harbour town of Falmouth to the east and Land's End to the west. Helston is a wonderful holiday destination offering plenty of attractions for the whole family.
