Converted Barn With Stunning Views and Gorgeous Gardens In Quiet Rural Location

Overview

Property

Updated: 01-Dec-2016
Two bedroomed light filled delight - Ideal for sandy Beaches, SW Coast Path & Cliffs, Mounts Bay, Coves and the charming fishing village of Mousehole

South Down Barn is a sunny, light filled delight approached along a bridleway and set amongst green fields close to the hamlet of Chyenhal. It is just a few minutes drive from Marazion, Newlyn and glorious Mounts Bay and 15 minutes from the stunning sandy beach of Sennen Cove. Sympathetically converted to a high standard by the artist owners who's art is evident in house and garden, the living areas are spacious, there are two good sized bedrooms and one bathroom, the whole is light, airy and bathed in sunlight. From its SW sloping position it commands fine views of Penwith towards Lands End [9 miles] and the high moors. The near 2 acres of garden and woodland make this a wonderful and relaxing environment filled with sound of birdsong and the breeze in the trees. The garden attracts plenty of wildlife including foxes, badgers, buzzards, owls, dragonflies and butterflies. It is an ideal place to explore all that the area has to offer; beautiful beaches, stunning cliff walks, sailing, surfing, galleries, restaurants and pubs.

Superb holiday

  • 5 of 5

Such a lovely place to stay. You feel like you are miles from anywhere, but only just 2 minutes drive from Newlyn for amenities. The barn has everything you need on holiday, well equipped kitchen, washing machine and space to dry and very well maintained! The location is good for exploring the coves/beaches or just exploring the villages/attractions. The owners were so welcoming. Would definitely recommend this venue to anyone.

Incredibly peaceful

  • 4 of 5

The barn is ideally suited to reach all the wonderful beaches of west penwith as well as mousehole and Penzance, but feels very remote. It is the quietist place We have ever stayed in with good walks right from the door. It is homely with a spectacular master bedroom. The second bedroom was a bit damp though not uncommon in these older properties. The owners were charming and provided an exceptional welcome cream tea as well as bath and beach towels. It's walking distance down a bridle path to the king's arms at Paul and a few minutes by car from mousehole where the Rock Pool Cafe was areal find. The Ship Inn has a warm local feel and 2 Fore Street has the best food for miles around.
