This is a beautiful stone cottage that looks like it has been part of the scenery for years but was, in fact, a derelict barn that had fallen into complete disarray until it was lovingly rebuilt by the owner. There are cleverly designed windows and Velux skylights that make it a surprisingly bright and welcoming cottage, a wide bi-fold door that opens from the lounge into the garden, a terraced area to the rear of the property and a good sized garden. Both bedrooms are spacious with a master bedroom and family room and a truly luxurious bathroom with separate shower and bath.
Trennal Barn is situated just outside the quiet hamlet of Godolphins Cross and is a couple of miles inland from some of the south coasts best beaches, Praa Sands is south facing, sandy and has lifeguard cover during the season, it can have quite large waves and is frequented by surfers when the conditions are right. The main Helston - Penzance road provides good access to all modern amenities and tourist attractions from St Michaels Mount to Flambards with a wealth of pretty little bays, promontories and traditional fishing villages.
