    “Sampsons barn is lovely and ideal for two.”

    Very light and spacious. very well equipped, comfortable and beautifully clean. We loved the shower which was large and more powerful than ours at home. I will say that if you have dogs that are inquisitive and agile they will not be safely enclosed. The front wall is low (less than a metre). so that the sunset can be appreciated but our terriers happily hopped up on top of it. For this reason we did not leave the doors open for them to wander.

    Very light and spacious. very well equipped, comfortable and beautifully clean. We loved the shower which was large and more powerful than ours at home. I will say that if you have dogs that are inquisitive and agile they will not be safely enclosed. The front wall is low (less than a metre). so that the sunset can be appreciated but our terriers happily hopped up on top of it. For this reason we did not leave the doors open for them to wander. This was not an issue on our break as it was a cold spring and we had the heating on and the doors closed. The area has many old mine workings so you are advised to keep dogs on leads when walking locally. Again not a problem as one of ours has poor recall and stays on his lead except when enjoying the evening beach walks. They are only a couple of good local walks straight from the door and involve some road walking but the roads were very quiet whilst we were there. We appreciated the supply of milk, tea etc on arrival and the home made biscuits were lovely. The owners kept very much in the background, giving us all the privacy we wanted but when a small issue with the heating arose it was dealt with immediately; the perfect balance.

The property

A beautiful barn conversion set in rural surrounds within a short drive of Praa Sands makes this a great destination for holidays.

Within two miles of the sandy stretch of beach at Praa Sands, this idyllic barn conversion makes the perfect bolthole for a couple wanting a romantic escape.

All on one floor, the accommodation is spacious and thoughtfully laid out.

Off the hallway, you have a smart bathroom with bath and separate double shower, a dreamy kingsize bedroom and at the far end a wonderfully welcoming open plan living space and kitchen with dining area that boasts french doors to the garden and a fantastic wood burning stove.

The lawned garden is enclosed by a low-level wall and fencing allowing peaceful relaxation after a busy day exploring.Stretch your legs along the various footpaths from the rural spot in Trescowe, or jump in the car to see some of the beautiful coves along the south west coast between Mounts Bay and Porthleven.

For true seaside lovers, why not hop on the branch line train from nearby St Erth and while away a day or two in St Ives where traditional Cornish charm meets upmarket eateries and shops, with some of the most beautiful sandy beaches around West Cornwall.

Guests at Sampson Barn will not be disappointed by the variety on offer from this peaceful, rural hideaway home.

About the location

PRAA SANDS

Marazion 4.5 miles ; Helston 6 miles ; Porthleven 5 miles

The village of Praa Sands sits on the south coast in between Helston and Marazion. Praa Sands is known for its mile-long sandy beach and excellent surfing conditions. There is a bar/restaurant overlooking the beach – the perfect spot for lunch with a view or sunset drinks. Praa Sands is also home to a Golf and Country Club, from where the most wonderful sea vista can be enjoyed whilst you play. Just inland from the beach is Pengersick Castle, the tower of which dates back to the 16th century. It is said that Pengersick is haunted, and that the ghost of a monk has been seen wandering the grounds! The house at Pengersick is rumoured to be the birth place of John Carter, the self styled King of Prussia and a tunnel which leads from the house to the beach was apparently once used by smugglers. There are supermarkets and other retail stores in Penzance (8 miles) and Helston (6 miles).
