Nestled in a wooded valley a short drive from the pretty fishing harbour of Porthleven, this detached barn offers guests and their four-legged friends a peaceful and relaxing rural retreat. With two bedrooms at either end of the barn and the open plan living-room in between, privacy for all is guaranteed. There is a good-sized rear garden, adjacent to the Owners who live in the farmhouse next door, where you can relax after a day out exploring in peaceful surroundings and bird song may be the only sound you hear. With walks on your doorstep and local attractions such as Godolphin House, the Helston Railway (seasonal), the Penrose Estate and Porthleven, a stay at Long Beam Barn could be just what you are looking for.
A holiday in this part of Cornwall offers many options to the visitor, whether you like to wander around grand houses and gardens, walk the wonderful coast paths or explore the rich mining history and engine houses seen in the television drama Poldark. Discover friendly pubs serving quality local produce and savour the wide selection of juices, ciders and beers brewed here in Cornwall; but perhaps most of all enjoy the spectacular scenery and beaches this rugged part of the county has to show you, much of it is right on your doorstep.

Long Beam Barn is set within a small group of properties, including the Owners' next door and two cottages opposite.
The open plan living-room, with the double bedroom en suite at one end and the twin room at the other.
The kitchen is a social space where the cook can chat whilst preparing breakfast, lunch or dinner.
The garden is a good size and mainly enclosed.
There is a raised deck in the garden, this can be accessed on the level through the garden gate or up a small flight of steps from the cottage.
The double bedroom.
The spacious twin bedroom has three-foot single beds so is suitable both for adults and children.
The family bathroom is between the kitchen and the twin bedroom.
A flight of stairs lead up to the snug where there is a TV, books and lots of games for the younger ones.

The family bathroom is spacious and has a bath and an electric shower.

The location of the barn is close to the site of the old railway line and many of the old bridges still remain.
When you see these signs you are nearly there, follow this lane up to the barn, parts of the lane are unmade but not too bumpy.
The pretty harbour town at nearby Porthleven has become a real 'foodie destination' in the last few years and is definitely worth a visit.
A pasty on the beach from the local bakery or lunch at one of the many local fish and seafood restaurants or pubs, it is all here in Porthleven.
Your four legged friend can come too!
Visit the fabulous long sandy beach at Praa Sands a short drive up the road or if you have your four legged friend with you Rinsey Cove is a favourite.
