Characterful and spacious barn in a lovely quiet rural spot with a beautiful view not far from the south coast. LOW MONTHLY RATES from 1st Jan - 26th March or 7th NIGHT FREE for weekly stays. Surrounded by farmland and rolling hills, 'Sunflowers' is ideal for those looking for a peaceful retreat. Or for families, there's plenty of space for the kids to run around, both indoors and outside. The barn can easily sleep 5 (possibly 6) in its three bedrooms. One or two lightweight full-size divan beds can be added when required (see photos). Outside is a lawn with a picnic table. The front door leads into a large beamed living area with an open view over unspoilt countryside. This room has comfortable leather settees, fast wi-fi, 32"TV, DVD player and music centre at one end and a well-equipped kitchen and dining area at the other. Just four steps lead up the large family bathroom and twin bedroom. On the upper floor is the master bedroom with a king-size bed, ensuite with shower and a door opening onto an upper level patio with outdoor furniture and a lawned garden. There's also a spacious single bedroom on this floor. All bedrooms have TV. Parking space is available two cars.
I moved here a couple of years ago with my partner and am happy to have taken over the holiday letting of Sunflowers Barn - previously managed by Sian, with whom the property achieved an excellent reputation. Together with her husband, they'd completely renovated the Barn while still retaining its original charm and character. I come from Guernsey and am a keen beach-goer and sea swimmer and am enjoying getting to know this lovely stretch of Cornwall's coast. My partner and I fell in love with this spot as soon as we saw it, and are particularly appreciating the beautiful view and the peace and quiet of this tucked-away location. We're working towards achieving an eco-friendly lifestyle here. We've already installed solar panels, planted 18 fruit trees and created more veg beds and terraces. Our home barn is just across the courtyard from 'Sunflowers'. While respecting your privacy, we're conveniently nearby should you need anything or have any queries. We enjoy meeting our visitors - and look forward to being able to share some of the fruit and veg we're growing here. Jules (on the right side of photo)
Sunflowers Barn is situated in a quiet part of Cornwall in the small hamlet of Trelowia. There are coastal walks and many lovely beaches nearby, including Seaton Beach, just a 3.5-mile drive down a beautiful valley - or 45 mins walk through spectacular woodland and riverside nature reserve. The steep hill on your return will keep you fit! The picturesque, bustling harbour town of Looe is just 5 miles away, with a myriad of shops, pubs, cafes and lovely sandy beach. From here, you can take a boat trip along the coast to Polperro. Quieter beaches nearby include expansive Whitsand Bay and stunningly beautiful Lantic Bay. Though tucked away in a deeply rural location, the Barn is just ¾ of a mile from the main road, making it easy to travel to many local tourist attractions. These include The Lost Gardens of Heligan (under an hour) and The Eden Project (30 mins). Exeter Airport is an hour's drive and the Brittany Ferries port at Plymouth just 25 mins. For younger guests, there's a monkey sanctuary, large go-track and a long zip wire over an unused quarry nearby. Surf school, golf, fishing (on lakes or at sea), canoeing, kayaking and paddle-boarding are also available locally.
