Ivor's Barn is a gorgeous stone-built barn perched on a hillside above the small village of Gulval in the far west of Cornwall. Restful rural surroundings with an ancient village, castle and sea close by… that's the lovely little mix you'll find at this charming abode. Sleeping four, this rather lovely barn is a wonderful choice for a family getaway or a romantic holiday for two, and your favourite pooch is more than welcome to join you!

This gorgeous barn offers reverse level accommodation to take full advantage of the countryside and distant sea views. Arrive and walk into the spacious hallway hang your coats on the coat pegs and relax. Take the stairs up to the open plan living area. The fabulous kitchen has everything you might need for cooking up a breakfast feast or preparing a picnic to take with you to the beach. Relax at the breakfast-bar with your morning coffee and enjoy long, lazy lunches and sociable suppers at the dining-table. The sitting-area is flooded with light and has two comfy sofas basking in the toasty warmth of the wood-burner so you can stretch out after a day walking the St Michaels Way or coastal footpaths or exploring the little shops in St Ives.

On the ground floor you will find two bedrooms that wouldn't look out of place in a boutique hotel. No expense has been spared, and the lovely owner has made sure that you have the best night's sleep, with each bed adorned in luxury linens and locally sourced natural throws. The contemporary family shower-room has a wonderful shower which is perfect for washing away salty hair and sandy toes. You will also find the oh so handy washing machine on this floor too.

Outside, there's a private patio which is stepped in places and perfect for soaking up the sunshine during the day, al fresco dining and gathering around the fire-pit at night under the starlit sky.

Located just off a country road, this idyllic end of terrace barn is opposite a farm and has walks galore on your doorstep so don't forget those walking boots! Stepping out of the barn you have direct access to paths that lead to Gulval, Castle an Dinas and Chysauster Ancient Village, a late Iron Age and Romano-British settlement.

Gardeners will love the grounds of nearby Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens, where you will find beautiful gardens, a lovely little gift shop and a tearoom that serves wonderful locally-sourced yummy delights! Picturesque fishing harbours at Penzance and Newlyn and sandy coves are all nearby, while easy access to excellent roads makes exploring further afield a doddle.

Ivor's Barn is perfectly located so you can enjoy the delights of north and west Cornwall, with numerous beaches on both and all within 20 minutes drive so the ideal base to explore!
