This is the perfect retreat for anybody looking to get away from it all, with plenty of seaside towns and coastal paths there is always something to see or do in Cornwall.

With sandy beaches, secluded coves and miles of cliff-top walks on your doorstep, this stunning property is the perfect retreat for anybody looking to escape to the countryside. Gather the whole family, the four-legged member too, to drink in the views of the Cornish landscape from the comfort of the sofa or welcome the morning with a cup of coffee on the terrace, before ending the day in style with an al fresco meal.

Light, airy and open-plan in the living space, a bright welcome awaits you in this delightfully converted property. The country-style interiors resonate with the surrounding landscape, with the pastel blues and soft sandy finishes echoing the coast, a mere mile away. Splashes of colour add character to the bedrooms whilst the spacious living space allows everyone to socialise together to discuss the day's adventures. Open the floor-to-ceiling sliding doors to allow light and fresh air to pour in during the day, then snuggle up as the night falls, warming your toes in front of the coal-effect fire.

Lamorna Cove (1 mile) is easily accessible direct from the property, whilst Marazion beach (10.5 miles) is backed by fantastic dunes. Visit Levant Mine and Beam Engine (12 miles) to see a working steam-powered beam engine on the cliff-top site. Flambards Theme Park (21 miles) or Cornwall's Great Escape Rooms (4.5 miles) are sure to entertain the kids. Trewidden Garden (6 miles), a 15-acre Cornish garden with magnolias & camellias, has a children's trail and tearoom. Penzance (6 miles), has a multitude of shops and pubs to choose from.

Amazing location being away from the bustle of the coast but giving fabulous sea views. Friendly and welcoming owners . We are a 3 generation family ranging in ages of 8 months to 60 and it suited all of our needs. I would recommend bringing board

The Owls House is perfect for a family group, whether with older people or youngsters, as apart from a step in at the entrance and a single step up to two of the bedrooms, the interior is largely on the level with spacious kitchen, dining and living area and glorious views out to sea.

This beautiful barn is huge, has many different sitting areas so when someone was doing a jigsaw puzzle at one table, someone eles could be sat doing something else at another, while the main table could still be set for dinner. Very quiet and comfortable, big rooms and big bathrooms. Arrived to lovely flowers and a cream tea, very thoughtful...

Fabulous and very spacious barn conversion. Beautiful views across the peninsular and walking distance to Lamorna Cove which has a great coffee shop. Lots to do locally and short driving distance to numerous supermarkets if required. Lovely cream tea and flowers awaited our arrival.
