A superb barn conversion with reverse-level accommodation to take full advantage of the spectacular panoramic views across both coast and countryside that surround the property

Positioned perfectly to explore West Cornwall, there is no shortage of beautiful fishing villages and renowned attractions in this part of the county. Lamorna Cove is easily accessible on foot direct from the property down a private track, or carry on walking along the South West Coast Path for breath-taking views along the cliff tops. Newlyn and Mousehole are just a short drive for freshly caught fish and experiencing a truly Cornish community, or head slightly further for Penzance, where you can find a multitude of shops and pubs to choose from. Land's End isn't far away if you want to pay a visit to England's most westerly point, or head to Porthcurno to discover the famous Minack Theatre.
The reverse-level style accommodation of this large property means that all three of the bedrooms are arranged on the ground floor, with each of the rooms spacious and lovingly decorated to create a relaxing environment for you to rest and unwind in after a long day of exploring. The family room boasts a king-size bed plus another single, with a TV and en-suite bathroom with separate shower cubicle and WC. There is then another king-size bed in the second bedroom, and twin singles in the third. The main bathroom is also on the ground floor, again with a bath, separate shower cubicle and WC, plus an additional cloakroom with another WC along the corridor. Upstairs, the huge open plan living space is ideal for socialising and making the most of the beautiful views around the property. The lounge/kitchen/diner is long, spacious and bright, with two separate seating areas at each end of the room; relax on the comfortable sofas at one side, enjoying your favourite show on the TV/DVD, or have a seat in the second area over by the kitchen. The kitchen itself is well-equipped, comprising of an electric oven and hob, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and microwave, so you can cook up a storm before enjoying your feast at the dining table.
The shared lawn outside is ideal for children and dogs, with plenty of space to run around and play games. There is also a climbing frame with swings and a slide for the kids, so they're sure to be entertained for a long time meaning you can sit back and relax. The balcony, accessed via the stairs outside or from the lounge, features outdoor seating to enjoy the sun and a glass of wine, looking out towards Lamorna Cove, Mounts Bay and the Lizard Peninsula. There is private parking for two cars.
 

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

We had a wonderful time here. Beautiful setting and the house is set up to really take advantage of the views. Our kids (4 and 1) loved the small playground too. We particularly enjoyed visiting Sennen Cove, Mousehole and St Michael's Mount while we were here. One thing to bear in mind is it is quite far from a supermarket and you have to be preparRead moreed to drive on country roads. Hide

Lovely secluded location with views across Mounts bay. Very well kitted out with everything you could need for a fantastic stay.

Beautiful barn conversion in the countryside and looking over towards the sea. Lots of open space which was great for 7 of us living there for a week. Great to have the play area outside and also only a short walk down the lane to the nearest pub! This place is ideal if you prefer a quiet location.
