  • "Stayed in July 2022 The Old Barb is a wonderful place to stay to explore the nearby coast, beaches, walks, villages and towns all within easy access."

    Gail was lovely checking in on us on arrival making sure we had everything and we did! Beautifully maintained, spacious enough to accommodate 4 adults comfortably The Old Barb is a must if you want to getaway from it all but have this beautiful region of Cornwall a stone throw away. Highly recommended!

  • "We took our little toddler to the Old Barn for a week."

    It was the perfect space for him and us. Spacious accommodation, yet cosy. Situated, amongst a working farm, located centrally to many beautiful towns and walks. Would highly recommend this property. We look forward to going back.

  • "We had the most wonderful weather for Oct/Nov."

    After a good night's sleep and breakfast in the Old Barn, it was wonderful to look out at the beautiful green fields and peaceful space and decide what to do for the day. The location was perfect for driving out to so many different areas and every morning we took in a costal walk, then visited many coves, beaches, villages, eating places and local sites with ease and comfort. Took lots of photos of the amazing scenery and generally had a peaceful and calming week.

  • "It was a lovely property and the host on site, Mrs."

    Gail Hunt, was a delightful and very helpful lady. The only criticism that we would have would be that of the absence of curtains to the entrance/living area......difficult to watch the TV in the evening sun! Otherwise just fine!

  • "The Old Barn is a wonderful place to retreat to."

    It’s comfortable, warm, quiet and feels like home away from home. My family loved the fact it’s off the road and set on beautiful land with open skies and close to everything, including Sennen Cove, Newlyn and Penzance. Highly recommended. Thank you.

There are two elegantly styled bedrooms on the lower ground floor, each with stable doors leading to a patio area and the master having the benefit of an en-suite shower room, whilst on the ground floor the spacious open plan living area offers spacious accommodation where the light floods in through the floor to ceiling windows.

With a door leading outside, you can truly relax and unwind while you enjoy alfresco meals on the decked terrace overlooking the meadows.

The beautiful beach at Sennen Cove offers a mile of fine white sand and azure sea, with safe bathing and a first class beachside restaurant.

There is a charming harbour with a small fleet of fishing boats, art galleries and traditional pubs, cafes, and shops.

If you fancy trying your hand at surfing, there are two recognised surf school offering tuition and equipment hire.

An abundance of beaches await at nearby St Ives along with the exotic paradise of Trewidden Gardens and St Michael’s Mount.

Visit The Minack, Cornwall’s famous open-air cliff top theatre, which is not to be missed.

Explorers of all ages will enjoy the Penwith Peninsula offering spectacular open moorlands dotted with old mines and ancient monuments.

The coastal path gives access to remote beaches and hidden coves and outstanding scenery.

Wonderfully placed for saltwater escapades and exploring the rugged character of Cornwall’s magical Far West, this barn conversion is a great choice for the families, friends or couples who wish to explore this fabulous area.

About the location


St Ives 8 miles. Helicopter to Isles of Scilly - 30 minutes

Penzance hosts Golowan, the Midsummer Carnival, and The Literary Festival. There are also The Exchange, Newlyn and Penlee Art Galleries. One of Cornwall’s most popular holiday areas is the spectacular sweep of Mount’s Bay, from the cliffside fishing village of Mousehole through Penzance and around to beautiful Marazion, the coastline hides a wealth of sandy beaches, rocky coves as well as winding village streets and other places to visit and explore. Connected by a causeway to the shore at Marazion is the National Trust’s stunningly beautiful St Michael’s Mount with its hilltop castle and Mediterranean gardens. Walk across at low water and take one of the ferry boats back when the tide is up. Penzance with its winding streets, shops, clubs, restaurants and harbour is a must as it is the jumping-off point for day trips to the Isles of Scilly as well as being the harbor. The South West Coast Path passing through Penzance winds its way along the clifftops towards Land’s End. On the way, stop off for a coffee and a rest at beautiful Lamorna Cove, explore the open air Minack Theatre and marvel at the cliffs as you approach Gwennap Head. A stunning walk for those seeking solitude, exercise and some of the UK’s best coastal scenery. Penzance is the perfect holiday base. Ideally placed for exploring this land of Celtic myth and legend and with enough to do and see in the immediate area to keep all the family occupied.
