Cornish Barn Holidays (B)

We offer tastefully converted barns in a wonderful rural setting in Perranwell. Our properties are family-owned and managed and have been designed to give more space and comfort for couples. The barns make an ideal base for exploring all that Cornwall has to offer, as well as being within walking distance of local pubs, a village shop and post office, a café and Perranwell Classic Car Garage. We are also close to the Truro – Falmouth Maritime Train Line and local bus routes.

We currently have three converted Barns to let :
