Penvith Barns is part of a 16th century Cornish farmstead. The farms hereabouts are ancient and have royal connections. The three major estates of Bucklawren, Boddiga and Treveria (which between them incorporated Penvith) were owned by King Harold, the ill-fated runner up in the Battle of Hastings. The new King, William, noted them in the Domesday Book, and presented the lands to the Monastery of St Stephen in Launceston. Penvith commands stunning views over some of England’s most beautiful countryside. And whilst we are very much “in the country” we are still really close to the lovely town of Looe with all its top class restaurants, pubs and a wide range of entertainment and things to do.
Having spent our entire careers on the corporate ladder, we decided it was time to jump off and create something rather wonderful between us. Once we discovered Penvith Barns we jumped at the opportunity to own our very own piece of Cornwall with stunning views over some of England’s most beautiful countryside. And whilst we are very much “in the country” we are still really close to the lovely town of Looe with all its top class restaurants, pubs and a wide range of entertainment and things to do. The Barns boasts the remains of a 13th century water wheel pit, which you can see under a glass floor in the office. There is rumoured to be a smuggler's tunnel running from it but as it is 15 feet below ground level, we haven't found it yet. We have chickens, to provide us and our guests with the very freshest eggs, to our collection of pet sheep and dogs. It’s becoming quite a petting zoo all nestled in the Cornish countryside and not too far from two wonderful beaches and the host of historic jewels on the south Cornish coast like Polperro, Fowey and Kingsand Cawsand.
There are so many beautiful villages to see; Polperro, Fowey and Mevagissey to name just a few. There's cycling along the Camel trail to Wadebridge and Padstow and enough golf courses to keep Rory happy for months! Long walks along the beautiful coastal path; only 5 minutes away. Entertainment for children in Looe and at the Adrenalin Quarry with it's amazing zip wire and go karts. Cotehele House (NT) is a beautiful medieval house untouched by time, with lovely gardens and woodland walks. Mount Edgcombe House has wonderful gardens. The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Trebah Gardens and Pine Lodge Gardens are all an easy drive from Penvith, and of course the Eden Project is a fabulous, all the year round. If you are into Steam Trains, the Bodmin and Wenford Railway can transport you back to the golden age of steam. Whilst the Ghost Busters amongst you must visit Bodmin Jail with it's Ghost Walks, and Orb Sightings. Land's End, Jamaica Inn, Carnglaze Caverns, the Tamar Valley Donkey Park, Plymouth and the National Marine Aquarium are all available for you to visit. So come to Penvith Barns and enjoy a fabulous holiday!!
