Set within 30 acres of farmland, this small complex of three pleasant one-bedroom properties has sea views, ponies and chickens, and a footpath to the coast.

One of three beautiful single-level properties situated close to Sennen Cove, Land’s End and the Cape of Cornwall, this a wonderful holiday home to set up as a base from which to explore the area. Footpaths from the barn lead to Gwenver and the South West Coast Path. Several beautiful coves and beaches can be found on the Penwith peninsula including the Porthcurno beach with the Minack open-air theatre nestling in the cliffs. Visit the working mine museums of Levant and Geevor, which will give visitors an insight into how big the tin mining industry was in the area – a real trip back into the past. A few miles from the property is a choice of pubs, shops and restaurants in Sennen or St Just. Further afield, the historic towns of Penzance and St Ives can be reached.
These lovely barn conversions have vaulted ceilings, original exposed beams and wooden floors, making the most of their original features. The accommodation is set across a single storey, ensuring easy access throughout. On arrival at the property, guests will find the spacious and inviting lounge/kitchen/diner, as well as a delicious cream tea offered by the owners. The lounge has ample comfy seating, a TV/DVD, and a wood burner effect gas fire perfect for chilly nights. The kitchen area comes complete with an oven and hob, a fridge/freezer, a dishwasher, a washing machine and a microwave, while the dining area is perfect for two. Also on the same level is the bedroom, containing a four-poster double bed, a TV and a luxury en-suite bathroom with bath, separate shower and WC.
Patio doors lead outside to an enclosed garden with seating, where guests can take in the beautiful views over towards Gwenver Beach, which is approximately a mile away. Guests are invited to make friends with the farm animals that live on site in the barns, fields and paddock including ponies, chickens and ducks. There’s ample off-road parking too.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Eastbourne is a bustling seaside resort on the south coast of England. It has been a popular British holiday destination since Victorian times. The town’s attractive pier and promenade is still a major draw for visitors in search of a traditional seaside experience – you can enjoy a long, level stroll along the sea front whilst enjoying an ice cream or some fish and chips. The pebble beach is a good place to park a deckchair and take in the sun, or paddle in the sea. Great for family breaks and as a romantic getaway, the town has much to offer all visitors. The South Downs Way starts in town and extends 100 miles eastwards to Winchester – one of the first stops on the National Trail are the imposing chalk cliffs of the iconic Beachy Head, a few miles to the east of town. Eastbourne is a big hit with train enthusiasts as it’s home to the Spa Valley Railway and the Miniature Steam Railway. Historians may like Redoubt Fort and The Observatory Science Museum (in nearby Herstmonceux). For all-weather attractions for children why not investigate Fort Fun or the indoor Motcombe Swimming Pool? Further afield, and within a one-hour drive to the west is Brighton, with its own pier, wonderful array of shops and eateries. To the west is Bexhill-on-Sea with its impressive art gallery, the De La Warr Pavillion, and long seafront. Just beyond is the old fishing town of Hastings with its new award-winning designer pier, ancient castle and fishing shanty town.
