Year property purchased: 1994

Why this location?

Inow Barn sits in an idyllic east/west facing position overlooking the quintesential creekside village of Port Navas on the Helford river. The redundant barns have had their huge potential realised so satisfying the desire to build and garden. With no noise of traffic or light pollution the sounds of river birds and the night sky can easily be enjoyed. Breakfast can be eaten as the sun rises to the front of the barn while camp fires & bbq's are treats as it sets. A sense of remoteness and only minutes walk from the waters edge in several directions but only 15 mins from the artisitic seaside town of Falmouth and 30 mins from the Cathedral city Truro.
