Stepping through the double patio doors into the bright and stylish living room with its plush leather sofa and feature electric fire for those cooler evenings, you’ll feel the cosy ambience of Merrivale Barn. Built over three levels, this beautiful barn conversion, set in a very private area of the owner's garden, has lots of space for two and with the bedroom tucked away on the lowest level, it feels romantic and peaceful - certainly somewhere to escape to from the hectic pace of life. The sumptuous, pocket-sprung mattress and dark night skies will ensure your comfort and relaxation.

Positioned just inland from the Helford River, with delightful detailing and private parking, Merrivale Barn is the perfect choice for a tranquil holiday base just a few miles from the maritime town of Falmouth and the picturesque creeks and fishing villages of the Lizard Peninsula. The local village of Constantine is home to a convenience store and a general store with an unusually fine selection of whiskies and wine. The award-winning Trengilly Wartha Inn nearby is worth visiting for fresh food using locally-sourced ingredients, a friendly welcome and occasional quiz nights or live music out on the terrace. The sub-tropical gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan are both within a short drive and many walkers, garden lovers and golfers enjoy recharging their batteries in this lovely area.

The Helford area is an idyllic location set around the Helford River, just south of Falmouth. The area is blessed with stunning scenery – beautiful countryside, glorious walks following the meandering river and a plethora of quiet little coves and bays along the coast.

The whole region is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with a number of picturesque villages and hamlets dotted throughout the landscape. Whether you stay in Constantine, Helford village, Maenporth, Gweek, Coverack, Manaccan, Flushing or Porthallow, each has its own charm and character, with thatched and white-washed cottages a real feature. Why not explore all of them, sampling the quintessentially English village pubs along the way!

The Helford area is situated on the east coast of the Lizard Peninsula, with Lizard Point a must-see attraction. Other great days out in the area include the Seal Sanctuary, the sub-tropical paradise of Trebah Gardens and firm favourite, Kynance Cove. The nearby towns of Porthleven and Helston offer restaurants, supermarkets and pubs and, of course, the harbour town of Falmouth is just up the coast, providing for all your shopping needs, excursions and more.
