Beautifully restored barn in a stunning rural location
Glebe Barn is a stylish conversion that provides a wonderful combination of external rurality and internal style. Located alongside 11th C Colan Church, this property is a unique space with 1st floor living area, ground floor kitchen, garden and external tranquility that ensures you know you're away from the real world. The Glebe is 400 years old and you enter the barn via a private entrance and courtyard. On the ground floor is a kitchen and dining area. Upstairs is an open lounge with double bed and from there a very cool bathroom. There is also a futon to provide extra sleeping space for up to 4 people - though it's ideal for a couple or young family. The property is located in a tiny, ancient hamlet called Colan. Despite it's rural location, the property is only 3 miles from the ocean, newquay and north cornwalls wonderful range of beaches. It's also close to the main road through Cornwall. A wonderful location, beautiful property and delicious place to stay.
About the Owner
We are a small family business promoting and managing properties across Cornwall.
Some of the properties are self-owned but, we also manage properties on behalf of friends and neighbours.
These are/were our private homes and we want guests to enjoy using them as much as we do. We also care about the people staying in our properties.
We think it helps set us apart and starts right from the first enquiry.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Our website has a number of comments. A couple below;
"Really loved the barn. Very cool style inside and very private. Felt totally away from work and everything else. Looking forward to returning"
"Excellent value. We are a young family and the space was perfect for us and the peace and quiet of the location a real bonus. Hated leaving"
From the Owner
“The Glebe is owned by our neighbours and is one of only 2 properties alongside the 11th C Colan Church. During 2012 the owners renovated their barn conversion and we now help them market the property. Inside it's a very stylish unit. Outside it's idyllic, peaceful and charmingly rural.”
