  • “We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the accommodation was very clean, well kept and comfortable and the setting was beautiful and peaceful.”

    The barn had everything we needed and the welcome pack was very generous. The location was perfect for exploring the sandy beaches of the South Coast of Cornwall as well the pretty harbour town of Fowey.

The property

Amongst the wonderful landscape of the South Cornish coast this spacious barn conversion is set near a small, quiet farm, surrounded by fields and woodlands and near to the historical harbour town of Fowey.

Perfect for those seeking a peaceful haven, the property has a reverse layout with two lovely, bright bedrooms, one having the benefit of an en-suite shower room and the other housing zip and link beds, and a bathroom on the ground floor.

Upstairs there is a beautifully presented open plan living area and as you step out onto the balcony and take that deep breath, you will feel immediately relaxed and content.

Perfectly located for enjoying some lovely walks, cycle trails and exploring Cornwall’s attractions including The Eden Project.

Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the town of Fowey boasts a beautiful estuary where the harbour is a magnet for sailing fans.

Walk through the narrowing streets of the old town where there is a stream of medieval and Georgian buildings and browse in the quirky gift shops and art galleries.

There are many bistros, cafes and restaurants to choose from offering plenty of local produce and plenty of seafood choice including the River Fowey mussels.

Pop into the charmingly old fashioned, Fowey Aquarium where you can get up close at the petting pool or take the ferry across the harbour to Polruan where you can visit the spectacular cliff-side Headland Garden and indulge in a cream tea.

The idyllic village of Golant is nearby where you can take a trip up the river or lose a few hours resting at a riverside pub.

There are many pretty coves with sandy beaches nearby such as Lantic Bay and Ready Money Cove with the town of St Austell within easy driving distance.

A perfect countryside retreat with so much to explore in the area.

About the location


Lostwithiel 8 miles; Polperro 8 miles

This small town and civil parish lies at the mouth of the River Fowey in south Cornwall. The estuary of the River Fowey forms a natural harbour, which enabled the town to become an important trading centre. There is a wealth of things to see and do in and around the harbour. Whether you enjoy getting out on the water, playing golf or finding out more about the history of the area, you are sure to find something to suit the whole family. Harbour cruises leave the Town Quay regularly in season giving you a superb view of the town, but for the more adventurous, rent your own self-drive boat, kayak or paddle board and explore the waters for yourselves! The town is steeped in history, so why not join a guided tour of either Fowey or Polruan? You can even join an owl experience, play golf, go horse riding or pursue your artistic talents with pottery or painting courses. There is the aquarium, museum and St Catherine's Castle, as well as Readymoney Cove, all waiting to be explored. If you get peckish, or fancy something thirst quenching along the way, there is a plethora of pubs, inns, cafes and restaurants to choose. Whenever you plan to visit, keep a look out for the festivals, fairs, markets and theatre performances on throughout the year. There are many family attractions in the area, including Mevagissey and Charlestown harbours, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Discover them all from this fantastic base!
