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.

We do not accept bookings for "party weekends" - such as Hen and Stag parties - in any of the barns. We are more than happy to accept family groups celebrating birthdays, anniversaries etc.

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 Morval

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.

Taste of Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

The Corn barn was an excellent property that totally suited our needs. We were a family group with a small child and the owners couldn't have been more helpful providing a welcome pack of food and useful tips about the area. The property was spacious and comfortable and the surrounding gardens were lovely. The swings and the trampoline went down well the young grandchild as did the hot tub with the adult. Would thoroughly recommend this propoerty.

Wonderful must go

  • 5 of 5

The Corn Barn was more than expected and was absolutely beautiful , great size for 8 of us and situated perfectly as we love Looe! Ian and Brenda had left a hamper upon our arrival which was a lovely touch and their homemade goodies were excellent. To sit in the hot tub at the end of our days out with its breathtaking views - WOW!

Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the Corn Barn for 9 nights and I must say it is the nicest accommodation we have ever stayed in. The barn is beautiful and the grounds are so peaceful and tranquil, the hot tub is just the icing on the cake. The barn has everything and more. Ian and Brenda are so lovely and welcoming and the welcome basket is a lovely touch (and delicious). If I could have give it more than 5 stars I would have as quite simply East Trenean Farm is wonderful.

Luxury barn conversion

  • 4 of 5

This was a fantastic space for our two families to stay in. We enjoyed the spacious, open plan feel of the rooms and found the kitchen and bathrooms to be of a very high spec and the decor and cleanliness was impeccable. We enjoyed a complimentary welcome basket from the owners who were lovely and friendly, without being intrusive. The hot tub was enormous, and was a welcome treat after long walks along the beautiful coastal paths in the area. We all agreed that this was definitely accommodation that we would recommend to others.
