This delightful property is surrounded by rolling hills and wonderful countryside just a mile from the picturesque harbour town of Porthleven and the ancient market town of Helston. Lavender Barn is a cosy, converted barn stylishly furnished and suited to visitors at any time of the year. The private terrace is a sunny spot for al fresco dining with a barbecue for outdoor cooking. Lavender Barn overlooks the large garden and pond yet retains its own privacy.
For walkers, cyclists and beach lovers Lavender Barn is perfectly situated being near both the north and south coasts. The South West Coast Path runs through Porthleven and you can walk for miles along the coast in either direction and are rewarded with some of the most spectacular views in Cornwall. There are many other sandy beaches nearby for surfing and swimming.
This beautifully converted barn has been styled and furnished with calming tones throughout to create a truly relaxing and comfortable space; an open plan kitchen and sitting-room with cosy sofas, a CD/DAB radio with Bluetooth connectivity and a blazing wood-burner is ideal for resting weary limbs after energetic days out exploring. Lavender Barn is the perfect retreat for up to four people, whatever the weather and in any season.
The nearby Lizard peninsula is fascinating with numerous coves and inlets. Kynance Cove, Mullion Cove and Cadgwith are a few that are a 'must' and Lizard Point has the most southerly cafe in Britain perched high on a cliff and perfect for seal spotting.
To the west, Cornwall gets quite wild and diverse but is equally beautiful. Land's End, Mousehole, the Minack Theatre, Porthcurno and Sennen are great places to visit and all within an easy drive. St Ives, Falmouth and Penzance are each an equal distance of just 14 miles away.
This peaceful location has more to offer than the usual holiday cottage as the owner Sarah is a qualified Pilates Instructor and Sports Therapist. For those wanting to stretch tired muscles or enjoy a massage while on holiday, why not book yourself an appointment. Booking in advance is advisable.
