The property

Barn Owl Cottage is a beautifully presented stone barn conversion, nestled in a peaceful rural setting within easy reach of the coast at Porthleven and Praa Sands.

Retaining its original features with beams and rafters, the barn is light and airy, tucked away from the colourful and popular holiday destinations nearby.

The heart of the property is the open-plan living space.

Get cookery creative and rustle up something tasty; the kitchen area is located just beyond the sitting and dining area.

Patio doors lead to a terrace - a great spot for blue sky dining.

Children will love playing in the acre of parkland shared with the two neighbouring holiday homes; a fantastic space for a kick around or game of rounders.

Just three miles down the road, the old market town of Helston offers a range of shops as well as a boating lake, swimming pool and the popular Flambards Theme Park.

The National Trust-owned Penrose Estate – super for a walk or cycle, leads from Helston down to Loe Bar and the beautiful south coast.

Barn Owl Cottage is perfectly located for couples, friends and small families seeking a country escape within easy reach of the coastal attractions.

About the location


Porthleven 3 miles; Falmouth 12 miles; Penzance 14 miles.

Helston lies at the western gateway to the Lizard Peninsula, a large area of downland fringed by a beautiful and spectacular coastline. Helston is a pleasant busy market town famous for its Flora Day Festival and the many stories and legends about the "Furry Dance" are told in the fascinating Helston Folk Museum. Nearby is the Poldark Mine, one of the best underground experiences in the south west and which tells of the widespread mining heritage of this area. Nestled in a tranquil setting is the National Seal Sanctuary on the Helford River, where there is plenty of entertainment watching seals play and feed. If it is thrill rides that excites you, then Flambards theme park will keep you amused all day and also has excellent living history experiences. Further afield is the harbour town of Falmouth to the east and Land's End to the west. Helston is a wonderful holiday destination offering plenty of attractions for the whole family.
