Granite Barn With Countryside & Distant Sea Views



Updated: 13-Aug-2016
Barn at Tremorvu, Tresowes Hill, Helston, Cornwall, England - Peaceful Location, 1.5 Miles From The Beach

The granite barn has been recently converted and extended from an almost derelict outbuilding to a high standard of self catering accommodation and stands within the grounds of our 8 acre campsite.

The campsite itself is popular during the summer holidays, however The Barn is not affected by this and remains a very peaceful place to enjoy and relax and during the months of May, June, early July & September you can enjoy almost complete peace and quiet and take advantage of the space.

The Barn faces south looking across farmland to the Atlantic Ocean which you can see from the bedroom on the first floor.

The private garden surrounds the property and at the rear there is a superb decking area where you can relax, BBQ and indulge in the amazing sunsets over the Penwith Peninsula and the wonderful views of Tregonning Hill.

Great location, great house and a great welcome!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the barn for a family reunion/birthday party and had an amazing time with our big group (incl. lots of children!). Some of us were staying in tents/camping vans next to this gorgeous granite barn- Everything was perfect!

We found all what we needed in the fully equipped cottage and enjoyed the terrace and BBQ watching beautiful Cornish sun sets! THANK YOU- Hoping to be back one day soon.

Very lovely barn at a beautiful camping ground

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this barn a lot. It's furnished and decorated with great love to detail.

Everything for your daily need is present. There is a modern and fully equiped kitchen, own washing machine and tumbler included. Even a BBQ grill is available.

The location ist absolutely peaceful and quiet inbetween meadows and fields and rabbits are hopping around the campground.

There are so many picturesque locations and places of interest in short distance (by car).

We had a great time and would have liked to stay for longer.

From the Owner

The Barn is situated on our campsite which unusually enables families of mixed generations to enjoy a holiday together. We often have grandparents staying in our Barn whilst their children and grandchildren camp. We have an on-site shop, open during the Summer holidays selling locally produced meat, bread, eggs and milk, beach goods and general supplies.
