The property

Looe 2 miles.

Ideally located for touring the south coast of Cornwall, this huge and really spacious Grade II listed barn conversion is situated on a working farm in the hamlet of Morval, 2 miles from the bustling historic fishing port and town of Looe.

Easily accessed off the A387 you drive up a private lane leading to the farm where you will be surrounded by peace and tranquillity with far reaching countryside views with the sea in the distance.

You will immediately be impressed by the sheer size of the barn.

You have a choice of two sitting rooms, one really large with four sofas, a dining area and splendid large balcony and the other a cosy spot to relax, read a book and sit in front of the woodburner on cooler evenings.

The well-equipped kitchen with dining area is the place to start the day all sat around the table planning the day ahead over breakfast.

There are four bedrooms and four bathrooms here, two first floor doubles and a twin and a double on the ground floor.

The two bedrooms on the first floor both have en-suite facilities and the two ground floor bedrooms are located next to one of the bathrooms which has a Jacuzzi bath.

With a relaxing garden and being surrounded by fields this really is a place to unwind.

Just a short drive will take you to the ever popular historic town of Looe where a wide choice of restaurants and old pubs offer a selection of food to suit all.

There are two popular beaches at Looe as well as quieter beaches at Seaton and Downderry both of which have once again excellent restaurants and all of which are within 10 minutes’ drive.

When in Looe after watching the days catch being auctioned on the quay, why not buy some for yourself to prepare back at the barn.

Fishing trips can be arranged from the harbour and the children will delight in catching crabs from the long harbour wall.

The Old Barn offers beautifully relaxing spacious accommodation to be enjoyed all year round.

About the location


Liskeard 9 miles.

Looe is Cornwall’s second largest fishing port and hence there is always a lively maritime bustle around the quay area of East Looe, which is connected to the quieter West Looe by a seven arched 19th century bridge over the River Looe. You can also catch the river taxi between East and West Looe. East Looe has narrow cobbled streets, twisting alleyways and plenty of tourist shops, whilst West Looe has a lovely outlook across the harbour. Looe’s viewpoint, Banjo Pier, can be reached from the quay and is a great spot to watch the returning fishing trawlers and look across the bay to Looe Island, which can be walked to occasionally at very low tides. The sandy Looe beach adjoins the pier and is very popular with families because of its safe shallow swimming and vast expanse of sand. There is also a great rock pool area at Hannafore that children will love. West Looe has a discovery centre, and the delightful Kilminorth Woods have way marked walks through the majestic oak wood, rich in plant, insect and bird life. Apart from beach activities in this part of south east Cornwall, there are many mining remains on Bodmin Moor and in the Tamar Valley and much of the mining landscape has World Heritage status. This area of Cornwall has inspired writers, such as Daphne du Maurier and much of Bodmin Moor has inspired legends linked with King Arthur. There is much to explore in this beautiful part of Cornwall.
