Nestled in a woodland setting on the outskirts of Mawnan Smith and only two miles from the sandy beach at Maenporth, this beautiful house has been lovingly and sympathetically restored by the Owners who live in one of the barns nearby. Filled with an eclectic mix of upcycled and carefully selected pieces of furniture and fixings, this welcoming home retains the honesty of its origins as a traditional Cornish barn at Higher Tregarne Farm. Enjoy the peace and quiet of your countryside surroundings whilst spending quality time relaxing and unwinding with family, friends and loved ones. This characterful home has a unique split-level layout making for a very interesting and unpredictable interior, for example the stairs in the kitchen take you up to the sitting-room, a fantastic space for relaxing and dining, and a couple of steps down into the hallway, take you down to the bedrooms and bathrooms.
The kitchen has a traditional wood-burning stove, should you wish to try your hand at cooking the farmhouse way. The four bedrooms, all on the lower floor, are perfectly complemented by two gorgeous bathrooms and a 'one of a kind'; rock wall wet-room, so there's no need for anyone to queue when staying at The Grange. Outside there is a delightful courtyard garden for relaxing plus an enclosed area of lawn for the children to play. Higher Tregarne Farm is no longer a working farm and the outbuildings surrounding the house are currently not occupied, so apart from the Owners and one neighbouring property, you will be the only guests staying at this wonderful countryside location. The pretty village of Mawnan Smith, just over a mile away, has a welcoming pub serving good food, two village shops selling local produce and a friendly cafe perfect for a cream tea or a nice slice of cake and a proper coffee. Just up the road you will find Trebah Gardens (March to October) and Glendurgan Gardens (open all year) both beautiful whenever you visit and if a bit of pampering beckons, the spa at the Budock Vean Hotel is also just outside the village. The maritime town of Falmouth and the Cathedral City of Truro are both only a short drive away and with plenty of walks on your doorstep, especially if you like to follow the coast, the views are quite spectacular. For those who enjoy getting even closer to the water there are a range of watersports available and boats to be hired at Helford Passage, there's nothing quite like messing about on the river...
