Lovely barn conversion in the Penwith region of Cornwall. Explore the South-West Coast Path, the Minack Theatre, the mines and beyond.

This inviting semi-detached barn is one of three properties located on this quaint 14-acre smallholding one mile away from Gwenver in Penwith. Surrounded by rolling Cornish countryside with amazing sea views, everyone will feel at home on this lovely farm. With a footpath to the nearest beach and access to the South West Coast Path you are nicely set-up to explore the most westerly region of mainland Britain.  Take a trip to Botallack and St Just to discover the history of tin mining locally, there are industrial remnants scattered throughout the area. Also, stop at the alternative to Land’s End called Cape Cornwall – this is where the Atlantic Sea meets the English Channel.

A lovely single storey barn conversion with vaulted ceilings, original beams and oak flooring. The layout is largely open-plan with the lounge/kitchen/diner all occupying the lion’s share of the bungalow. In the lounge, you will find a TV/DVD, hi-fi and an electric fire, so relax of an evening on the sofa and catch up on your favourite TV shows. The kitchen is equipped with an oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and microwave.  The bedroom with lovely views over fields to the coastline, has a double four-poster bed, a TV and an en-suite bathroom with bath, shower and a WC.

In a lovely setting the cottage was well equipped, cosy and welcoming. It was our rescue dog first holiday and she loved it. Enclosed garden was a real bonus. Close to first class beaches and beautiful Cornish countryside this little gem is well a stay.

This cottage was perfect for us with 2 dogs. A great size garden for them to play in with lovely views of the Cornish sea.

This cottage is in the same building as another cottage, but we never felt crowded. The pony in the field beyond the garden is very friendly and not at all fazed by our dogs barking, and the walks around the area are beautiful. Easy bus access into various nearby towns. We didn't drive at all.

Great Holiday Cottage for Dog owners. The property is fenced in at the front and rear so great security for our dog. Excellent walk to the dog friendly beach nearby. Lovely cream tea on our arrival.

This is our third visit to Hens Nest and hopefully not our last which I think says it all. As soon as we enter the property we feel relaxed and at home. The owners are friendly and helpful as well as their gorgeous dogs. As a certain actor said I will be back

Hen's Nest was absolutely beautiful, we arrived after dark and it was the perfect welcome - sparkling Christmas lights on the fence and inside, a Christmas tree, glowing fire, and even welcome biscuits for us and our dogs.
