About the property

Shirehorse Barn is a wonderful granite barn conversion recently refurbished to offer a warm welcome to all who stay there.

Thoughtfully and creatively finished, Shirehorse Barn is ideal for all visitors to Cornwall whether you're taking time out for yourself, travelling with your other half or best friend or a family wanting to have the space to sprawl. Arrive along a country track (take care if your car has a low ground clearance) and enter through a 5 bar gate to your own drive, parking area and large garden. The parking area is right next to the house, so it's not far to carry your cases.

The south facing garden has the sun for most of the day, so whether it's coffee, croissants and the morning paper, or wine with olives before dinner, enjoy the warmth as you sit on the large patio. The garden is completely fenced so you don't have to worry about small children wandering off.

Inside the house downstairs is open plan, spacious and well-equipped to provide a 'home from home' with a good-sized kitchen, dining area, comfortable living room and a wood burning stove for cosy evenings in. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms with the master bedroom having an en-suite shower room and WC, a twin bedroom, a single bedroom and a family bathroom. You may also enjoy the countryside views from a small balcony facing over the garden.

Shirehorse Barn is a very short drive off the main route into Helston and so is perfectly located to explore the South and West coasts of Cornwall.

A very well-behaved, groomed and house trained dog is welcome at Shirehorse Barn. Our house rules for dog is that they are not to be left alone in the property or the garden without owner supervision and control, the garden is left clean and that they are kept on a lead when on the lanes surrounding the house due to livestock grazing nearby. We love dogs (and have two of our own) and hope you have a really wonderful holiday with them too so if you need tips of the best dog friendly places to go - please just ask!

average rating of 5.0 based on 3 reviews

Lovely tranquil setting. Accommodation was very well kept with everything you would need.

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of four adults. Shirehorse Barn was perfect for us. We especially liked the extra touches such as wine and flowers as we arrived! There was also milk, tea and biscuits which we enjoyed on the lovely patio. We were sad to leave and will hopefully be back again.

Very well equipped and located property

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped property, did not want for anything, spotlessly clean, the bottle of wine on arrival was a nice surprise even our dog Jack had a Bonnio biscuit waiting for him. There is a cupboard full of games and crayons for rainy days for the kids. We even found a cupboard full of dog items, chair covers and doggy bags, very well thought out, good supply of local information and instruction manuals for all the equipment, needed this to get the oven to work - touch screen dial. Daily walk down lane and hill to Lidl and the boating lake for tea in the morning just a 15 min walk with the dog. Nice size garden and a gate across the entrance to make it secure for dogs and kids, lovely quiet location little difficult to find but well worth it. Even arranged fantastic weather for us! Would definitely go again.
