Trennal Barn - a holiday cottage that sleeps 4 guests in 2 bedrooms
Nice house but tricky to get to down very narrow lanes
Nice house which was clean and tidy.
Only issue was the request to recycle but not having any tubs in which to do so, with only a plastic dustbin half filled with wood out in the shed.
The location is convenient for sightseeing from Land's End to the Lizard, but accessing the property is tricky as the lanes leading to it are very narrow with the wing mirrors frequently touching the plants on both sides of the road at the same time!
Very enjoyable and comfortable stay
As a negative, however, the wall cupboards in the kitchen smelt musty/damp for some reason, unless the doors were left open.
Also, the siting of the fridge/freezer next to the entrance doorwell, requiring a step down each time for access to it, is not ideal.
Wonderful Barn conversion
If you like peace and quiet this is the perfect place to relax, whilst being central to all Cornwall has to offer. Your every need is catered for and the spacious secure garden was perfect to let our pooch run free. The owner was most helpful and I would recommend this to anyone wanting to get away from it all
Fabulous property in a quiet rural setting.
Relaxing anniversary in Cornwall
Excellent property, had everything we needed for us and our dog. Super value for such a stylishly done property and we had great weather!
Brilliant Cornwall cottage
Definitely one of the best cottages we have ever visited. Clean, well equipped and quiet, everything needed for a comfortable stay was provided. Well done to all concerned
Praa Sands in the South West of Cornwall is located between Helston and Penzance. The town contains many facilities including a shop, pub, post office and Praa Sands Gold Club. The nearest large supermarket is Morrisons towards Penzance. The extensive beach stretching from Rinsey Head to Hoe Point is extremely popular with the whole family, Prussia Cove, Perranuthnoe & Marazion are the nearest beaches, all within a few minutes drive. When the North Coast is 'blown out' you will find the surfers flock to Praa Sands for its powerful waves coming straight in from the Atlantic Ocean. Just inland from the beach is Pengersick Castle which dates back to the Bronze Age. Nearby Helston is famous for its Floral Dance in May, a day when the whole town stops and dresses up for the days many dances through the streets. From Penzance you can take the Scillonian for a day trip to the picturesque Isles of Scilly, well worth a visit if you have never been. 10 minutes down the road lies Marazion famous for St Michaels Mount, home to a medieval castle and a working local community. St Michaels Mount is accessible by causeway at low tides, or by boat. The castle is leased from the National Trust by the St Aubyn family who reside at the property maintaining and working the grounds.
Trennal Barn is only 1 mile from the beautiful beach and surf at Praa Sands and about the same distance from Rinsey's rocky cove (NT). Prussia Cove film set for 'Ladies in Lavender' and Godolphin House (NT) of 'Poldark' fame, are nearby. Four miles away is the market town of Helston, full of Cornish history and tradition, with its Furry dance in early May. For children of all ages there is Flambards Theme Park next to Culdrose Air Base famous for many air sea rescue missions. There are sights to be seen around Goonhilly Earth station where the large dish Arthur is now a listed building. Try your hand at riding a 2 wheeled Segway. These together with the Seal Sanctuary at Gweek and the nearby coastal village of Porthleven provide any holidaymaker with a wealth of interesting visits. Only 7.5 miles away is the lively town of Penzance where the Scillonian offers trips to the Isles of Scilly. St Ives is only 14 miles away on the north coast with its beautiful bays and artistic areas.
Trennal Barn is central for the areas and villages of the Lizard, Helford, Land's End and Mousehole. Facilities for golf, sailing, course and sea fishing are all available within two miles. You can take country and coastal walks or visit local country pubs for well-priced meals or shop in the local super stores at Helston and Penzance. There are a wealth of gardens to explore. The mines at Lelant, Geevor, Bottalack and Poldark are a short drive away. The Minack Theatre and Porthcurno beach are well worth a visit. There are world famous art galleries at St Ives and Newlyn.
