Trelowarren Barn
West Cornwall

£408 - £886 per week
Book

Let time stand still for a while; relax and unwind together in this cosy, rural retreat for two. With distant sea views across the lush, emerald fields and horses gently grazing in a neighbouring meadow, Trelowarren Barn is a perfect choice for a romantic escape. Located in Boskednan, Trelowarren Barn is just a 10 minute drive from Penzance. Perfect for countryside rambles with breath taking views; lace up those trusted walking boots and stumble across the Nine Maidens, a partially restored, prehistoric stone circle in Boskednan. Trek a little further and the Gurnard's Head will provide a welcoming cold beer or refreshing glass of wine with a spot of lunch. After a day exploring, pour a glass of your favourite tipple, forget about the daily stresses of life and watch the sun set over the ocean from the garden at Trelowarren Barn. On the cooler evenings, the amber glow of the woodburner encourages evenings snuggled up together on the comfortable sofa.

Take the short drive to Penzance to find supermarkets, galleries, pubs, restaurants and the Jubilee Pool, an art deco sea water lido and geothermally heated pool. With endless beach choices, Marazion, Sennen Cove and Praa Sands to name but a few, pack up a picnic and head to the beach for a lazy day sunbathing or hitting the surf. St Ives is just a short drive away and with several tropical gardens to visit, there is so much to explore and enjoy without travelling too far. Trelowarren Barn is a secret you will want to keep, but also somewhere you will always want to return to.

We absolutely loved our stay here, so much thought has gone into this beautiful little barn; it’s the perfect place to stay. I’m a Fowey girl, but, I prefer this part of the county, and this has been one of my most favourite places that we’ve stayed. We will definitely be back.

November 2023

We had a lovely week at Trelowarren Barn. I can’t understand why it doesn’t have more reviews on here. It was peaceful, with lovely views towards Penzance. It was very clean, very well equipped, with some lovely touches of a cream tea on arrival, and some essentials to get you started with milk, tea and coffee also a bottle of cider and a bottle of ale. It is quite central for various visits, we went to St.Michael’s Mount, The Minack Theatre, Mousehole, St.ives, Newlyn, Porthleven and of course a walk round Penzance. Main shops are just in Penzance. Just loads to do if you want to, or just stay put in the barn and chill. We also walked up the hill to ding dong mine then across in front of the cottages onto the next mine. Please don’t be put off by the few narrow roads, it’s not very busy around there and everyone is so courteous to you and you soon get used to them.

Holidays in West Cornwall

There is almost an embarrassment of riches for the visitor to choose from when looking at holiday cottages in West Cornwall. With its extraordinary variety of landscapes and coastline, as well as its proud history and cultural heritage, you won't be disappointed.

With many superb beaches to enjoy, including five with the coveted Blue Flag status, it is easy to see why so many people associate this part of the world with sun, sea, sand and, of course, surf. There is, however, so much more on offer when contemplating self catering holidays in West Cornwall.

West Cornwall is home to popular destinations such as MarazionPenzanceCarbis Bay and St Ives, which are all worth a visit. From the iconic St Michael's Mount to the breath taking Minack Theatre as featured in our blog, you wont be short of things to do while self catering in West Cornwall.

Things to do in West Cornwall

Days out

With such an abundance of stunning sights in West Cornwall, you'll be spoilt for choice when choosing where to visit while holidaying here. St Michael's Mount, The Minack Theatre, and St Ives harbour are just a few of the enthralling places on offer. The many golden sandy beaches that West Cornwall boasts are perfect for topping up the tan. For something a little more energetic, boat trips, fishing excursions and water sports are available. Museums and art galleries provide an equally enjoyable day out, with world famous exhibitions at the Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth museum within easy reach.

With the bustling coastal towns of St Ives, Mousehole and Marazion within close proximity of one another, you can be sure to find somewhere to provide everything you need to the perfect family day out. 

Walking

Cornwall's spectacular scenery provides the perfect backdrop for exploring. The coastal paths which hug the rugged cliffs offer breath taking sea views, while walking inland you can enjoy the many nature reserves, ancient stone circles and woodland, for which Cornwall is renowned.

Art & heritage

Famous for its quality of light, the area has long been a haven for artists and there are many galleries to be found wherever you go. There are also many gardens to enjoy; the mild climate will often let plants flourish here which you won’t find anywhere else in the country. For those wanting to dig a little deeper, there is also an amazing mining and maritime heritage which has done much to shape the county and its people as well as, it could be argued, the rest of the world.

A lovely property set in a countryside location, very well appointed and within a short distance to Penzance and St Ives and the whole coastline.

This is a great property! Perfectly decorated and equipped, with a really comfy bed and spacious rooms. The views are spectacular, with a splendid view of the sea from the sitting room and garden. I would recommend Trelowarren Barn to anyone!

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at Trelowarren Barn. The photos on the website really don't do it justice. It's very, very comfortable and cosy. There are wonderful views of the countryside and the sea from the living room and the front patio. For a great view of Mount's Bay, just turn left and walk 5 minutes up the hill.

Very well equipped and comfortable cottage. There’s a cream tea provided on arrival which is very thoughtful. The location is very peaceful and beautiful. Fantastic for nature lovers and walkers.

Lovely cottage in a fantastic location. Met by Anne who was really friendly and helpful.
