  • "Thoroughly enjoy our break, the barn had amazing decor and all the facilities you needed, the gardens were well maintained and enjoyed the peace and quiet of the lovely village, post office and general store had everything you needed, run by friendly people and enjoyed their home made pasties !"

    Pub not too far away and food was superb especially their Sunday roast, would most definitely recommend the barn and of course Sykes cottages who never let us down, we have stayed in some amazing cottages, thank you

The property

Set within the quaint village of Luxulyan in Cornwall, is this charming single-storey cottage, Carminow Barn.

Well-positioned near an abundance of amenities and the Saints walking and cycling trail, whilst featuring a studio-style layout, original beams and stone walls, and a pretty garden, the cottage welcomes two guests, perfect for a romantic countryside break.

Use the living space to prepare your meals, dine and unwind, before venturing outside to the secluded garden, dotted with colourful blooms, several patio areas, and a barbecue, ideal for alfresco dining and sunbathing.

Come night, complete your evening routine in the sleek shower room, before climbing into the plush double bed, enveloped by quirky interiors and homely features.

Once you're rested and ready to explore, head into Luxulyan and benefit from your central position, where you'll find the Kings Arms pub, a village shop, and riverside walks along the border of River Par.

Within proximity you'll also arrive at Treffry Viaduct, Par beach, Hangloose Adventure, offering a wealth of outdoor activities, and the popular Eden Project, an eco-attraction, with exotic gardens and rainforest landscapes.

The Shipwreck Treasure Museum in St Austell is also a popular activity, along with tours of the Historic Port of Charlestown, rich in maritime heritage, where you can also relax upon Porthpean Beach.

Travelling towards Bodmin, enjoy a nature-filled hike up to Roche Rock, or a leisurely stroll through Cardinham Woods, a forested valley, whilst Bodmin Keep - Cornwall's Army Museum is perfect for historian buffs, displaying thousands of military artefacts, covering 160 years.
