About the property

East Trenean Farm

Three of the 18th century, grade II listed barns here at East Trenean Farm were converted in 2010 to the highest standards. The one bedroomed Linhay was converted in 2015. They all offer comfortable accommodation with a modern 5 star interior.

Free Wi-fi in all properties.

The three larger barns have a "reverse level" layout with vaulted living rooms (Water Mill and Threshing Barn), wood burning stoves, modern well equipped kitchens, lovely bedrooms and bathrooms.

The Linhay is a single story building but has a few steps between the rooms. The lounge has a fireplace with electric fire.

All bedrooms have zip-link beds which can be used as 2 singles or a king size double (just let us know your preference when booking).

Each of the three barns has it's own private garden, a small south facing patio area overlooking the courtyard behind the farm house and access to the farm's 10 acres of gardens and pasture.

The newly converted Linhay has an enclosed patio/bbq area next to the courtyard and stunning views from the lounge and bedroom over the gardens and down the valley.

Whilst here, why not de-stress with a soak in our 8 person hot tub, situated in the grounds of the farmhouse with views across rolling countryside and a distant glimpse of the sea.

About Ian Farr

Brenda and I moved to East Trenean Farm in February 2014. We met each other over 30 years ago when studying at Plymouth Polytechnic and fell in love with the area. Now, having spent too long as city dwellers, we have returned to the West Country to run East Trenean Farm.

We live in the main farm house and let the three 18th century, grade II listed stone barns and the recently converted Linhay. Each barn has it's own private garden, but also access to the farm's 10 acres of grounds.

The Farm's previous owners converted the three larger barns and we have converted the one remaining derelict barn into a comfortable one bedroom cottage - The Linhay.

This newly converted barn has stunning views from the lounge and bedroom over the gardens and down the valley. Please take a look at our web-site for details.

We look forward to welcoming you to our lovely hideaway in the Cornish countryside.

Ian Farr purchased this barn in 2014

Why Ian Farr chose Looe

We love this part of the country because of the great coastal paths and the proximity to wonderful sailing grounds along the south coast of Devon and Cornwall.

The barns have been converted in recent years and therefore benefit from the latest standards in terms of insulation, wiring and plumbing ! They are not draughty or damp. They have been decorated with a clean modern look, whilst retaining much of the character of the original some buildings.

The views to the south are wonderful and we have a distant glimpse of the sea.

What makes this barn unique

It is wonderfully peaceful at East Trenean Farm, close to the coast, but not in the hustle and bustle of town.

The accommodation has been decorated and equipped to a luxurious standard, with natural stone walls, oak floors, original beams exposed and comfortable beds and sofas.

Our water is from our own bore-hole, so lovely soft spring water on tap.

Free range eggs available from our hens (subject to their ongoing co-operation).

WiFi in each barn, so stay in touch while away from it all (if you have to).

Log burning stoves in each barn other than the Linhay. All have central heating.

Relax in our 8 person hot tub with views over the farm and down the valley to the sea.

Entertain the children on the swings or the trampoline.

We had a brilliant time at the The Threshing Barn. It had everything we needed, fantastic welcome pack and we would have no hesitation in booking again and again. The hot tub was an added bonus.

Beautiful quality accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 nights at the end of May 2016 as a couple. The quality and size of accommodation was first class, everything well thought out, the location beautiful (lovely views) and convenient. The owner's very kindly accepted delivery of our online shop which arrived before we did and unpacked this for us into the fridge/freezer etc. We also had a lovely and very useful welcome basket of goodies! We found the location very convenient for visiting places of interest in that part of Cornwall. Wish our visit had been longer and would love to return. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone.

The threshing barn exceeded all expectations! The barn is spacious and spotless. We had booked a food delivery and Brenda kindly offered to unpack it before we arrived! We were also greeted with a delicious hamper of homemade goodies. The barn is set is a beautiful location with a hot tub over looking the countryside. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying here and would love to make a return visit in the future

Beautiful holiday accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Accommodation is beautiful. We stayed as a family of three generations and felt the Threashing Barn was very spacious meeting all our needs.

Lovely to have a utility room fully equipped and a washing line in the private sunny garden.

We really enjoyed the hot tub after a busy day and the booking for this was very simple, remember to take extra towels for this and a fluffy dressing gown!

We had a gorgeous welcome basket with the most divine ginger cake, local cider and fresh farm eggs. Even some milk and tea bags so we didn't have to wait for our Tesco shopping.

We had some great days out, Looe and its beach, Seaton beach, Hannafore, some coastal walks to Talland bay, Lost Gardens of Heligan, St Michaels Mount, Plymouth, Trago Mills, Fowey, Polperro and Liskeard where we did a heritage trail which was really interesting.

We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to you.
