The property

This rustic and comfortable barn conversion sit just two miles from the coastal town of Portreath and the north Cornish coastline with lots more beautiful coves and beaches.

The property is a charming and homely barn conversion set amidst big country views on a working farm, alongside two other holiday homes.

The accommodation is all on ground level with an open-plan living room and dining area - perfect for gatherings - to the well equipped kitchen and two bedrooms, including the master bedroom with king size bed and a twin room.

The shared enclosed garden has a raised lawn and patio, a sunspot for pets and children to play safely, and picnic lunches in the Cornish air.

The small fishing port and beach at Portreath with narrow harbour is reached within minutes by car.

The big stretch of sand make this a popular spot for swimming and surfing, under the watchful eye of seasonal lifeguards.

Seek refreshment at the town's café, pub or restaurant or get active along the South West Coastal Footpath - an advantageous spot to spy the striking cliff face and rock formation vista.

Adjacent to Portreath is Illogan Woods, ideal for a gentle circular ramble to the 14th Century church tower.

Follow the nature trails on cycle or foot around the ponds and lake at Tehidy Country Park with 250 acres of wonderful woodlands, or tee off at the golf club.

Explore the beaches and coves as you head up the coastline; Porthtowan, Trevaunance Cove at St Agnes, Perranporth and Newquay are all within easy reach with beach bars, cafes and inns for well-deserved cream teas, award winning ales and nibbles beside the Atlantic.
