About Georgina Brewer

As well as running my little holiday business by the sea, I am a mum to 3 small children (I really do understand the challenges of going on holiday with little ones). I am a recently recovering NHS physio and have just started a new career as a farmer's wife!

I take great pride in my properties - I want you to love them as much as I do!

And I simply adore this wonderful part of Cornwall - it has got to be one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Walking the beautiful coast path on our doorstep is one of my favourite things, and if you are lucky enough to have a dog, you'd be hard pushed to find better.

Georgina Brewer purchased this barn in 1949

Why Georgina Brewer chose Saint Merryn

My family have farmed at Carnevas for years, since Granny Rogers bought it in the 20s.

We love it because it is so tranquil. Often we have the coastal path and the beach entirely to ourselves.

And as for the beaches - my husband and I have travelled the world, but ours are the best. If the sun is shining, there is nowhere else I'd rather be.

Having said that, I rather like the wild weather and mad winds we get. We are right in the line of the Atlantic Ocean after all.

What makes this barn unique

As well as feeling like we live in the middle of nowhere, we are lucky enough to have a great local village with a proper community, a good local, and a great church. (You'll know what we mean should you meet Reverend Julia!!)

And then there is Padstow - yes some locals get a bit fed up with all the hype surrounding Rick Stein, but you'd have to go a long way to beat a fruits de mer and a cold bottle of Sauvignon at his restaurant. Foodie heaven!

Notes on accommodation: All our properties are beautifully decorated. Cleanliness is really important to us, which is why we have invested in lovely new beds, modern stripey carpets, and comfortable sofas. Pretty materials and fresh colour schemes abound. All properties have the usual mod cons: TV/ DVD, washing machine, fridge/freezer, microwave, oven/ grill/ hob, kettle, toaster, iron, ironing board, washing line, dishwashers. There are tumble dryers at Crigg and the Barn. We have carried out major refurbishments over the last 2 years and are really pleased with the outcome. The worktops in all of our kitchens are beautiful Cornish granite. The bathrooms are really modern and gorgeous with heated towel rails, and artisan tiles. New bathrooms, kitchen and balcony have just been added to the Granary which completes our major overhaul! All properties have proper heating, plus Crigg, Granary and Carnevas Barn have wood-burners. Cosy! Free WiFi now in all properties (apart from Linney) Outside: All properties are semi-detached. Crigg and Carnevas Barn each have their own large garden, which is fully walled/ enclosed and gated. Perfect for dogs and kids. The Linney and the Granary share a large open-plan grassy area great for big family get-togethers. Naturally we have outside seating and BBQs for you to use. These barns also have their own patios, enclosed by a low wall. The Granary's patio is next door to a shared courtyard. The Linney's looks out onto the communal lawn, and is gated (perfect for sandy dogs). The Granary has a lovely upstairs balcony leading from the master bedroom, fully enclosed. There is plenty of off-road parking available, and we live in a very safe area. We are situated on a road, however it is a minor country road, with a 30 mph limit, and very quiet. (It connects Treyarnon and Porthcothan bays, and is not a main through fare). We are right in the countryside, the air is filled with birdsong and the sound of the ocean!

At low tide there is a wonderful natural swimming pool where our children learnt to swim. It is perfect for surfing as it catches the North Coast swells, as well as fishing, rock-pooling, sandcastle competitions or just relaxing and taking in the wonderful views. One of many gorgeous beaches all within a few minutes drive


Newquay Airport is only a 10 minute drive.

We are on the Western Greyhound bus route between Padstow and Newquay, so it is possible to explore without a car.

Lots of shops, pubs, and restaurants, plus boat trips, and fishing expeditions, and a water taxi over to Rock (great for sailing or fine dining at Nathan Outlaws).
