Peaceful Barn Conversions ~ Close To A Quiet Beach ~ Garden & Sea Views - Keynvor

Overview

Property

Updated: 03-Dec-2016
Quiet 1 bed & studio barns ~ ideal for couples or single travellers ~ ocean view

Keynvor and Bian Mor are bright, airy barn conversions in a small farm complex which formerly belonged to the National Trust. The farmhouse dates from the 1650s and the barns from the 19th century. The south-facing garden affords fabulous ocean (and daffodil field) views, and is a sun trap when the weather co-operates. There is a gentle 10-15 minute walk through woodland to the nearest beach, which is on the South West Coast Path, and it is possible to walk to Falmouth or Helford Passage along the coast. Travel to the far south west or the north coast by car is straightforward, and there are local buses to Falmouth or Helston, and trains from Falmouth. There are a number of tourist attractions, including sub-tropical gardens, very close by.

Keynvor was renovated in 2011 and sleeps 2 in a double bedroom which overlooks the garden. The combined kitchen and living area opens through French doors onto a small garden with views across Falmouth Bay.

Bian Mor is a smaller barn, renovated in 2016, and sleeps 1-2 in studio-style accommodation. There is no separate bedroom, but the living area is spacious and efficiently designed; a simple-to-use and extremely comfortable sofa bed is provided. It would be ideally suited to single travellers looking for the freedom of self-catering accommodation.

We have equipped the barns with everything necessary to make your stay as comfortable as possible, including TV, WiFi, cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, coffee machine and washing machine. The bathrooms both have a shower, WC and sink unit.

Please note that the two barns remain separate, each has its own outdoor area as well as the shared garden, and there is adequate parking for both. The National Trust also has a holiday property near the farmhouse, and the road between Falmouth and Mawnan Smith runs past the car parking area of the cottage; there is very little impact from these on Keynvor and Bian Mor.

About the Owner

We bought Chenhalls Farmhouse in 1998 and we live here with our 2 teenage daughters, 2 collie cross dogs & 3 cats. Although neither of us is Cornish (a Northumbrian & a Londoner - via Brighton & Australia!) we love the quiet, peaceful life in this part of the world where we run our own businesses.

Cosy and lovely

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely three night stay at Keynvor Barn. Ailsa has thought of everything when kitting the place out, which made for a really comfortable stay. The afternoon tea and other goodies were a lovely touch and much appreciated. The location was good, the air was fresh and the barn was cosy and comfortable. Thank you very much.

I am disabled and would have appreciated a rail to assist with getting into the shower. The cream tea was a lovely surprise when we arrived, also the other goodies left for us to enjoy!

Stay at Keynvor Cottage 10-17 sept 2016

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Keynvor Cottage. The listing description was accurate and we found the cottage very clean and tidy on arrival. The instructions for obtaining the key were straightforward and we were welcomed with fresh scones, cream, jam and damson gin on arrival (yum yum !). The cottage was in an ideal holiday location for us, close to some beautiful countryside and coastline and yet only 10 minutes or so from Falmouth and supermarkets for provisions. Being centrally located within Cornwall it was possible to easily reach all the major tourist spots on days out or just amble along the beautiful coastline from the cottage. We were disappointed to find the Tate Gallery at St Ives closed and very disappointed with how the Eden Project has become 'commercialised' since our last visit (the restaurant food was also very poor) but other than that we really enjoyed exploring the area. The cottage had everything we needed in the way of facilities. Our only minor criticism was that we found the chairs and sofas a bit uncomfortable though we realise that this is probably a personal view. Outside we loved the view out to sea but were a bit disappointed that the area immediately in front of the house was regularly used by the owners and this detracted a bit from the privacy.The owner made us very welcome and was always on hand if we had any problems and we would recommend the cottage to friends and relatives.

Lovely barn conversion with everything you would need for a self catering holiday

The house is in a lovely part of Cornwall. Lots of places to visit nearby, and the local village is a busy community with a good pub and Tapas restaurant.

A great place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

We were delighted with the barn and it's close proximity to the coastal footpath and quiet beach. The property was excellently appointed. It was an ideal place for our two dogs and we were made very welcome by the owners. A lovely holiday stay.
