    “Absolutely stunning location!”

    The accommodation was 1st class throughout. The owners were very welcoming & explained how everything worked when we arrived, including the Aga, which if you are not used to takes a bit of getting used to. The local pub, the Gunnards Head, although requiring reservations for dinner, has a large garden with lots of socially distant tables which you don't need a reservation for if you just want a refreshing drink. The next nearest pub is the Tinners Arms, about a 40 minute walk away, again ...

The local pub, the Gunnards Head, although requiring reservations for dinner, has a large garden with lots of socially distant tables which you don't need a reservation for if you just want a refreshing drink. The next nearest pub is the Tinners Arms, about a 40 minute walk away, again reservation maybe required for food, but not for drinks in the garden. If you want a break away from everything this is the place for you, it really is the back of beyond, but St Ives or Penzance is only a 30 minute drive away! Although I would not recommend trying to drive into either of those. For St Ives, drive to St Erth train station and park your car there for the day (£3.70) and catch the train to either St Ives or get off at Carbis bay and walk the coastal path in, absolutely stunning.

The property

Located on the road between St Ives and Land’s End in beautiful rugged west Cornwall, this former barn offers the most fabulous panoramic sea vista from its cliff top location.

Remote and wild, a stay here is a true escape from everyday life; a haven for ramblers, rock climbers and artists – or indeed anyone seeking peaceful seclusion, reflection and relaxation.

Beautifully adapted to a welcoming and comfortable holiday home, Back of Beyond offers an excellent standard of accommodation.

With underfloor heating and a wood burning stove, it’s not just for summer; in fact it makes a wonderfully cosy sanctuary from where to watch the winter storms whip up the Atlantic.

The spacious lounge is equipped with a selection of books and games, and the homely kitchen diner comes complete with a warming AGA.

Two luxuriously restful bedrooms – both en-suite - promise deep sleep after a long day out in the sea air.

Outside, a sunny patio boasts 180 degree views of the ocean, extending out to a large lawned garden bordered by Cornish hedges and farm gates.

The land surrounding Back of Beyond is quite stunning; mysterious, windswept moorland peppered with gorse, engine house ruins and ancient stone circles and quoits.

It would be easy to spend a week cosied up in this little refuge, but if you choose to venture further, there is much to see and do in the local area.

For a truly unique experience, don't miss the open-air Minack Theatre, carved into the cliff face by local landowner Rowena Cade in the early 1930s.

Captivating St Michael’s Mount is just a short drive away, and Land’s End with its iconic signpost is also within easy reach.

Lovers of good food and drink should also be sure to visit the Gurnard’s Head gastro-pub, just a short stroll from the barn.

About the location

ST IVES

Penzance 6 miles.

One of Cornwall's prettiest harbour towns, St Ives offers narrow streets, tight-packed cottages nestling around the quayside, the Tate Gallery and Barbara Hepworth museum, fabulous beaches, superb shops, a thriving community of artists, great pubs and restaurants and much more. With its semi Bohemian lifestyle and romantic air, it's easy to see why this is the county's premier holiday resort. The surrounding area has much for the visitor to see and do with abundant wildlife, fabulous coastal walks, top quality surfing and the Celtic mysteries of the Land's End Peninsula are all within easy reach. A superb destination!
