About the property

Barn near St. Just, Nr. Penzance, Cornwall, England - Peaceful Location With Immediate Access To Countryside, Sea Views And Only 20min Drive To Beaches.

Chycoll Barn is a two bedroomed (sleeping 4) detached granite reverse level barn conversion uniquely positioned in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is surrounded by countryside and abundant wildlife with distant sea views lying in a secluded setting at the end of a three-quarter mile unmade track (take care with low suspension vehicles) that only serves this property and the owners' other holiday let, Chycoll Cottage, and their own accommodation. On the ground floor is a double bedroom with ensuite shower, WC and wash basin, and a twin bedroom. There is also a family bathroom. Upstairs is an open plan kitchen/living room/dining room. There is full central heating plus a woodburner. There is a private garden in front of the barn and parking for two cars. With wonderful walks from the doorstep, this is a delightful base within easy reach of beaches, clifftops and some of the best surf in the country. Please bring your own travel cot. Wi-fi internet access is available.

About David Ceredig-Evans

I live in West Cornwall with my wife, children, 3 labradors and Tito the cat! I work as a plumber during the day, and a musician the rest of the time. My wife is an artist, painting and potting where we live.

David Ceredig-Evans purchased this barn in 1995

Why David Ceredig-Evans chose Sancreed

We fell in love with the location as we drove up the 3/4 mile unmade lane and found a lovely unspoilt granite cottage and outbuildings set apart in its own grounds of about 6 acres.

What makes this barn unique

Chycoll Barn is situated up a 3/4 unmade track, in a completely unspoilt rural location yet only 15mins drive from the nearest surfing beaches at Gwenver and Sennen Cove. You can walk straight out of the property into glorious moorland situated several hundred feet above sea level giving distant views of the sea and coastline. The wildlife is extensive in this area with much to interest and entertain. On clear nights the stars are spectacular.

Gorgeous, secluded barn conversion in a beautiful part of Cornwall.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Chycoll and we will definitely be back! The barn is wonderful with distant views to the sea from the kitchen. The living space was perfect for us (a family of three) and fantastically well equipped. We even managed to enjoy a couple of barbecues in the evenings! David and Corralie made us feel very welcome from the outset (the welcome cake was amazing!) and were great throughout our stay with some really helpful advice and tips about places to visit. The area the barn is situated is beautiful and we ventured no further than St Ives as there is just so much to do in the locality. I can highly recommend waking around Bortallack Mine and Cape Cornwall. The ice cream at Newlyn is also amazing (as recommended by David and Corallie's daughter!) If you're looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life then Chycoll is a true haven of peace and quiet - situated 3/4 of a mile down an unmade track you really do get away from it all. Total heaven for two weeks - thank you so much!

A superbly comfortable and remote barn conversion. Outstanding.

  • 5 of 5

We will return and were delighted with EVERY aspect of our stay at the barn. The bed was supremely comfortable and the shower and bath were really good. Loved the upstairs living space and the facilities were of the highest standard. Would love to use the balcony for breakfast in the spring!! Thanks for providing such lovely accommodation.

Nice cottage in great location

  • 4 of 5

The weather wasn't very good during our 1-week stay, and 2 of us fell ill, but we enjoyed our stay very much nevertheless. The house is in a unique location; remote on the one end but close to e.g. Land's Ens and various beaches. Other attractions in Cornwall are only 1 hour away. The house owners David and Coralie are very nice and let our daughter ride horseback a couple of times. For tall people the lower floor is not quite high enough, e.g. in the shower, but the cottage as a whole is very nice and well equipped.

Owner's Response: It was great to meet this family from the Netherlands. We were glad to offer some horseriding which went down well - a bit of respite from the rain!

Lovely relaxing week in beautiful situation!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the barn. We wanted somewhere comfortable, peaceful and rural and that's exactly what we got. The views heading up the drive to the barn are stunning! It feels like the middle of nowhere and yet it is close to St Just and Penzance. The barn is very well equipped and our only regret was that the weather wasn't nicer as we would have liked to enjoy the lovely outdoor seating areas. Instead we lit the woodburner and had a cosy and relaxing time. David and Coralie were lovely hosts and we felt well looked after. Thanks for a great week!

A hidden treasure

  • 5 of 5

A perfect holiday location to relax and recharge the batteries. Total peace and quiet with nature everywhere you look. Badgers,owls,rabbits and hawks they all made an appearance. Our hosts were wonderful and the barn is beautiful with everything you need. There is so much to see and do in Cornwall and this is a perfect place to stay. The kids loved it, my dogs loved the walk each evening up and down the track and we chilled at the end of the night. Once in a while you find a little gem in life. This is one of them.

15min. drive to the golden sands of Gwenver (great surfing) beach, part of Whitesand Bay which includes Sennen Cove (excellent family facilities). The beautiful beaches at St Ives are 25mins drive away, and the beaches around Penzance and Marazion (windsurfing) are 20min. drive away.


Journeying by car down to West Penwith is much easier now with the M4/M5 and the A303 and A30. Trains into Penzance take a lovely scenic route along the coast in the latter part of the run. Lands End airport is 10min drive away (flights to the Isles of Scilly take 15mins) & Newquay airport is about an hour's drive away. Flights from there to the Isles of Scilly take 30mins.

If you are not travelling to Cornwall by car, then car hire is essential if you are planning to explore the area.


Carn Euny Iron Village is only a few hundred yards away!

St Just (3 miles) has a supermarket, Post Office, several excellent pubs and art galleries.

Penzance (6 miles) has several supermarkets (Tesco has 24hr shopping, online facilities and home delivery) and historic buildings and museums.

St Ives (15 miles) has a wide selection of art galleries, boutiques and great restaurants.

There are excellent Farmers' Markets in Paul (4 miles), Pendeen (4 miles), Penzance (5 miles)
