About the property

Detached Barn conversion with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, close to sea.

The Granite Barn is a beautiful farm building which have been converted to the highest standards. It forms the focus of a traditional small farm, (Little Goonreeve Farm) which has hardly changed since the 1950’s.

The Barn sleeps up to six in three separate bedrooms. The living area is upstairs to take advantage of the double height space and views. The large space has a separate dining area and a fully equipped chef's kitchen. Ideal for entertaining.

The master bedroom has a king size bed and an ensuite bathroom. The second and third bedrooms have either king size double beds or 2 single beds each. The luxurious family bathroom gives a welcome sanctuary.

There is a private garden and open access to 20 acres of beautiful farmland.

Little Goonreeve farm is on the Mylor peninsular between Falmouth and Truro in an area of rich farming country with rolling green grazing pasture. We are well placed to enjoy the amazing attractions which Cornwall has to offer.

Our farm is nestled in the Mylor downs, within the rich rolling hills of the Mylor peninsular, bordering on the stunning coastline 'The Carrick Roads' which provides some of the best sailing and water sports in the country. The location is rural but placed within a short drive (5 miles) of Falmouth or Truro with interesting shopping, cafes, cinemas and local amenities. Its an ideal Mid Cornwall base for visits to the usual attractions of the Eden Project, surfing beaches on the North coast, and the wilds of the Lizerd Peninsular and further west to St Agnes and Zenna. Close by is the famous waterside Pandora Pub (our local) and Mylor Yacht harbor.

Visitors are free to wander in the 20 acres of rich grazing land with abundant hedges which provide an ideal habitat for local wildlife.

Free range Beef, pork, eggs and organic vegetables are available from the farm and we are keen to promote the providence of British food. Visitors are welcome to participate in any farm activities, such as feeding, as little or as much as they want or just relax and unwind in your rural home. It's up to you.

The Granite Barn sleeps 6. The bedrooms are located on the ground floor to allow for open plan living on the first floor and to take advantage of the views across country side. The sunny master bedroom has a king size bed and enjoys views out onto the south facing garden. It has a Travatine tiled en suite bathroom with a generous shower. The bedroom benefits from a built in cupboard and storage area.

The second bedroom comprises of zip and link beds that can be made up as a super king size bed or two 3 three foot six wide single beds. The room faces west and looks out onto the farm yard. There are chest of drawers and clothes hanging facilities.

The third bed room also has zip and link beds, making a super king or twin single beds. There are chest of drawers and a wardrobe.

The spacious bathroom is situated on the ground floor and comprises of an integrated shower and bath that boasts an outstanding showering experience as well as a superior bath.

The living area is made up of the whole upper floor of the barn. The area is divided by an oak staircase that leads up from the entrance hall. One side of the open plan room allows for the sitting area. It is bathed in sunshine and takes advantage of the views over the farm and away to the hills to the west. There is a new generation log burner that triple burns the wood to provide maximum heat output but is also economic on the quantity of wood needed. (A complimentary basket full of logs is provided on arrival). There is a digital television with free sat.

The dining area is situated on the other side of the staircase. An six setting dining table enables spacious dining while enjoying the views out of the French windows to the garden below. This area too is sunny and light.

The well equipped kitchen is set off the dining area in a separate but accessible room. Here you will find a 90cm dual fuel cooking theatre in a well set out kitchen with slate work surfaces. Included in the kitchen are an integrated dish washer, washing machine, fridge and freezer.

The majority of our booking run from Saturday to Saturday but out of season this can change on request.

The most important thing for us is that our guests have a fantastic holiday and return home with unforgettable memories.

About James and Fleur

Fleur James William and Madelene moved to Little Goonreeve Farm in 2007. Fleur grew up in the farm down the hill from us (Barras Moor Farm) with her 3 sisters. We spent the early years of our married life in Middlesex trying to work out how we could manage a move to Cornwall and took the plunge when our eldest ,William, was about to start secondary school.

James and Fleur purchased this cottage in 2007

Why James and Fleur chose Saint Gluvias

We knew and loved the area so the problem was to find a house. It took us a year and we ended up in almost the first one we ever saw which Fleur remembered from her youth. It was in a sorry state but with a lot of hard work we have stripped back and rebuilt four separate dwellings.

What makes this cottage unique

We were attracted to Little Goonreeve Farm because it had changed little since the 1950's when the Milking Parlour in the middle of the yard was built. One of our aims of the restoration was to keep the essence of a small working farm.

As a family we also care about the providence of food and have benefited from the rearing of livestock in a low intensive environment.

We love our farm and aim to pass that onto our guests.

We also realise that people have worked hard for their holiday and everyone enjoys a bit of luxury now and then.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A perfect base for visiting our daughter and family and for exploring some new and some favourite old haunts. The barn is very comfortable and spacious. Thanks to Fleur and James for a lovely welcome.

Perfect get away

  • 5 of 5

The Granite Barn was a perfect place to stay for a complete relax and to explore the surrounding area. So quiet with beautiful views across the rolling countryside. The barn itself was immaculate and had everything you need, the beds were amazingly comfortable and I want the shower!!

Sad to not meet Fleur and James but other family were around and most helpful. A return is definitely on the cards. Thank you

Beautifully done, spacious, spotless, conversion with wonderful,hostess!

  • 4 of 5

Pictures don't do justice, children and adults will enjoy the "farm" without a farm smell! I was slightly worried we may have a gpfarm smell and roosters waking us, no such thing.

I'd recommend they add some dishes for children, and extra towels, as well as some basic supplies, but that's trivial ( we've been spoiled by houses that have done this). Location is great, I think also adding some favorites, such as Pandora inn, local calm beaches, or towns to list would be good. Traveled with our 4 year old plus my mother and all enjoyed. Thank you!

Fleur and James made us very welcome to their beautifully and tastefully restored property

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation was perfect for 3 couples, a toddler and two dogs. We made Granite Barn our base for exploring the area, meeting up with family who were holidaying nearby and just chillin'.

The farm animals made a great diversion for our grand-daughter.

The Granite Barn is part of a traditional 'old style' farmyard. There is another granite farm building (The Old Farm Cottage) which is available and sleeps 4. They are ideally placed to experiance the best that Cornwall has to offer. We are situated on the rolling green hills of the Mylor downs equidistant between the historic town of Falmouth and Truro.The safe family beaches of the south coast are close (3 Miles) and the more wilder surfing beaches of the North coast are a short drive away. (9 miles). Learn to sail from Mylor Sailing school or just hire a canoe and Paddle to our local pub. The famous waterside 'Pandora Inn' overlooking the beautiful Restronguet Creek and the Carrick Roads. There are a wealth of beaches, creeks and stunning scenery to explore. The beaches of Gyllynvase and Maenporth are local. Pendower and Rosevine are short ferry ride to the Roseland Peninsular. Keep an eye on the weather. When the 'surfs up' go to Perranporth, Fistral or Gwithian beaches for surfing. These are just a fraction of possibilities. Cycle the Bisso or the Camel bike trail. Have Fish and chips at Rick Steins in Padstow or Falmouth. Visit the gardens of Trellisic, Glendurgan,Trebah or Heligan. Go to the Maritime Museum in Falmouth after the Oyster festival. Go to a 'gig' in a multitude of places including Miss Peapods (our local venue for live music). There is plenty to do to suit a variety of tastes and interests. Or just sit back and relax back at the Farm. It's your holiday.
