Church Barn

£480 - £1262 per week

In the quiet village of Perranuthnoe, this reverse level barn conversion overlooks the pretty village church. This light and airy property has oak floors, vaulted ceilings and distant views from the Juliet balcony over the bay to Cudden Point and beyond. A woodburner warms the toes on cooler evenings, while the sub-tropical gardens are perfect for summer nights. Church Barn offers a family or two couples travelling together a base to explore the beaches, coves and South West Coast Path. All this from the comfort of a cosy cottage with a good dining pub around the corner.

We loved Church Barn and its location in a quiet corner of this lovely village. It is in a superb spot, overlooking the sea and is very well-designed to make the most of the views. The garden is stunning. We were so comfortable there and would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Church Barn is an absolutely wonderful property in a quiet and peaceful location in Perranuthnoe, our favourite place.
It’s such a cosy, comfy property and has everything you could possibly need. It has a welcoming feel to it and we felt completely relaxed and at home as soon as we walked through the door. The garden is beautiful and it has a fabulous decking area too, both with wonderful views. It’s a very special place and we didn’t want to leave. Thank you so much Stephanie for your very generous welcome pack, we thoroughly enjoyed it.
We can’t wait to return in September and have already booked for next year too.

Holidays in Perranuthnoe

Just a stone's throw from the stunning St Michael's Mount, Perranuthnoe is the neighbouring village to the old market town of Marazion. With a beautiful beach, and rocky headlands with many coves and rock pools to explore, Perranuthnoe is the perfect place to relax in a peaceful area of Cornwall.

Located in Mount's Bay, Perranuthnoe is perfect for those looking to escape the crowds and enjoy the serenity that Cornwall has to offer. Described as a countryside village by the sea, Peranuthnoe is secluded enough to ensure a peaceful stay, but close enough to the bustling town of Marazion if you fancy a more lively atmosphere. With the Lizard Peninsula within easy reach, Perranuthnoe is perfect for walking holidays and exploring the rugged coastline.

Did you know...

when the conditions are right, Perranuthnoe is a great place to surf!

Things to do in Perranuthnoe

Dating back to the 12th century, Perranuthnoe's village pub named the 'Victoria Inn' is thought to be the oldest recorded Inn in Cornwall. Full of charm and character, this award winning pub is well worth a visit.

A short walk from the pub is the picturesque Perranuthnoe Church, which is dedicated to Cornwall's patron saint, St Piran. The church stands on the site of a former church dating back to 1160, and includes features from the original church, such as a Norman font.

Perranuthnoe beach, (also known as Perran Sands) offers good surfing when the conditions are right, and is ideal for beach-goers with its golden sands, cafe and car park. Be sure to visit at low tide however as there is very little left of the beach when the tide comes in! The Cabin Cafe offers stunning views and is featured in our blog: The best beach-front cafes in West Cornwall.

A popular fishing spot, even at low tide, Perranuthnoe is a favoured spot with the locals for seabass and dogfish.

The 'Village Crafts' centre located in a converted barn in the heart of the village offers an extensive range of local artwork, crafts, gifts, jewellery, and country clothing. 

The Perranuthnoe Circular walk follows part of the South West Coast Path, which offers great views of St Michael's Mount, before cutting inland and back to Perranuthnoe via fields and villages.

The nearby Prussia Cove is a small and secluded rocky cove, surrounded by organic farmland and woodland has a famous history of smuggling!

would not go anywhere else --after 50 years visiting Cornwall

Our first holiday in Church Barn and we hope to come back in the future. It is a lovely cottage which is very well appointed and comfortable. Everything you could need. Very pretty garden and in a quiet location, but near enough to walk to the village, beach and coast path. The owners personal touch was appreciated and there was a generous welcome pack. We were lucky with the weather which was the icing on the cake. We will come back for another stay but unfortunately our dates don’t match up with the availability next year, so hope for 2026.

This was our first time visiting Perranuthnoe - what a lovely village! Surprised at the number of places to eat and drink within walking distance - all of which provide exceptional food and drink. Our stay at Church Barn was great (2 couples) as a convenient base for exploring the Lizard Penisula. We had a relaxing, comfortable stay, and even managed a drink or two on the terrace. Thanks to Stephanie for the 'Welcome'!

This, I believe is our 5th visit - which says it all!

Here's to our 6th?

Stunning property close to beach and local pub which served fantastic food. 2 cafes- peppercorn and cabin both good food and drink. Quiet village no convenience store for daily papers so hopped in car for a 5 min ride to next village. Lovely coastal walks on doorstep. If you are looking for a get away holiday from the rat race but also want to visit places of interest this is for you. Enjoyed every minute of our holiday.

A quiet retreat away from the pressures of life. Lovely to return to Perranuthnoe village and enjoy the coastal paths and glorious scenery of Mounts Bay.

Great property, fantastic location,liked it that much stayed an extra week.Looking out to dozens of rabbits in the field ,a 1 minute walk away from a pub with excellent food ,4 minute walk from the beach .very impressive all round.

Church barn : Always a wonderful, peaceful and relaxed holiday in a beautiful well equipped cottage with everything you need. A very short walk to the quiet but beautiful bay, amazing walks and a wonderful pub serving delicious food. Cannot wait to return!

We loved the location the view the garden everything about is property was beautiful .

Beautiful little cottage in a picturesque location. Met all expectations and the welcome gift was also a nice touch. Ease of access to coastal paths and local amenities. 100% be staying again

We love staying at Church Barn (our 4th stay) and the location is great for walks along the cliffs and is close to lots of other sites such as St. Michael's Mount, Penzance, Newlyn, Mousehole and many other places of interest so there is always a lot to do and see. Here's to our 5th visit.

Church Barn is the perfect location for a stay in Cornwall. The house is ideal, the village is great, there are excellent dining options everywhere around. Ten out of ten!!!

This was our 2nd stay at Church Barn and it was so lovely to be back there. The location and facilities at Church Barn are brilliant...fabulous walks on the doorstep, and the beach and cove are beautiful, with plenty of eating places including the Victoria Inn which we would highly recommend. We're already booked for 2023!

We loved everything about Church Barn, especially the peaceful situation, beautiful garden and view towards the sea. The barn was nice and airy in hot weather, with the choice to sit outside on the raised decking or below in the garden. Perranuthnoe is a pleasant village and well placed for visiting attractions both to the west and east. We much enjoyed visits to Chysauster ancient village, Trengwainton NT Garden and Godolphin, also wonderful performances at the cliff-edge Minack Theatre - a unique experience. Both beaches and cliffs are within easy reach, the SW Coast Path providing many opportunities for walking - in our case, around Sennen Cove and Lands End. We would definitely like to return soon to explore further.

Great holiday. The barn was well positioned with great views. The outside areas were good and well equipped. The barn was clean and well appointed and really peaceful. The beach cafe was very good which was 5 minutes away. Lovely beach.

highly recommended

Quiet, clean, spacious. Good location. Close to coastal path. Views to Cudden Point. Churchyard pretty and not a problem. Village pub The Victoria serves wonderful food. All in all a good place to stay and much enjoyed.

Church Barn has great sea views and is in an ideal location in a picturesque village within walking distance of a beautiful sandy beach and the coast path.

We have visited the Church Barn three times now and it always delivers. The views from the windows and balcony are lovely and the location is very good for walking either way along the cliff paths.. We hope to return again.

Always a treat

A wonderful holiday in a great location. Church Barn is a welcoming and comfortable place to stay.

This was our third stay at Church Barn and it didn’t disappoint. Beautiful property, lovely location and very peaceful. The perfect hideaway for a relaxing break. We have already booked to return next year twice!

Church Barn is delightful in location & facilities. It was our first visit and we are already booked for 2022. We know the village well and it was without doubt the best accommodation we have stayed in there. Fabulous welcome pack of goodies, great village pub & food and a beautiful beach and path walks. What more could you want.

We really enjoyed our stay. The Barn was beautiful, very well equipped, lovely and clean and a comfy bed. We had a fabulous welcome pack that was much appreciated after a long journey from Lancashire. The weather was good and we were able to sit out on the balcony and enjoy the sun with a drink. It was peaceful and the village was very friendly. Unfortunately, the pub/restaurant wasn't open but we were able to eat and have a coffee outside at The Cabin Cafe, overlooking the lovely beach. We loved it so much we've booked Church Barn for next year!

We have have stayed at Church Barn three times now and love its position near coastal walks and the view of the sea from the veranda. We would highly recommend the Church Barn and hope to come back again in the future.

A comfortable place to stay with all needs carefully thought through and addressed. Access to the beach and cliff walks superb. Also within easy reach of many local attractions.

We had a wonderful week staying at Church Barn with most days spent on the beach. The location of the cottage is perfect, walking distance to the beach, the pub and two cafes. We hardly used our car all week. In fact we enjoyed our stay so much, that we booked for next year while we were still there! Being able to see the sea from the garden and from inside the cottage was a real bonus.

The afternoon tea was very much appreciated after a very long drive from The Peak District!

We look forward to our return visit next year.

Well appointed, lovely barn, in an excellent location in a nice village on the beach. Nice garden with a deck with a view to the sea. Very quiet and a few minutes walk to the beach. Hard to fault really.

Very clean and felt safe with Covid regulations. Good walks locally and on coastal path. Local pub friendly with delicious food and only a few minutes walk. Great location for touring but in a quiet village. Second time in cottage and booked again for next year.

Great location. Short walk to beach and village pub serving excellent food but booking essential due to COVID limitations. Next to cemetery but only experienced one burial which we obviously respected and came in from balcony. COVID cleaning pack a nice touch even included masks gloves and hand sanitiser.

We are delighted to hear that you had another great stay here. It's an ideal place for a nice getaway. Fortunately the church is just a little village church, with a fairly small population, so such ceremonies are not a regular occurrence, thank you for your considerate actions at the time, we are sure that would have been appreciated by those in attendance. We look forward to seeing you here again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

A superb property in a beautiful village

The cottage is lovely with a superb location with views to sea. Very close to South West Coast Path so little need to use car once there. Sufficiently off the beaten track to be quiet but with easy access to Penzance, St Ives and other localities often with easy public transport makes for a relaxing holiday.

A very comfortable and convenient cottage which is revisited on many occasions by the same people, which tells its own story.

One of the best properties we have stayed in. Great place near the beach for a familiar or two couples. Welcoming, clean and of a high standard.

Great location, lovely village, easy to access both coasts and the far west.

Good location dampa problem good equipment

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments. Due to the slightly warmer, more humid conditions here in Cornwall, being so close to the sea, and the nature of the materials commonly used in buildings here, some properties may be susceptible to damp. This isn't something that we have ever had reported at Church Barn before now though, so we popped over to inspect the property after reading your comments. There had not been any damp present at that time, but things can vary from week to week so we will continue to monitor this closely. Thank you for letting us know. Tanya, Customer Services.

A perfect location for a delightful stay, Church Barn lived up to all our expectations.

A beautiful property although it is next door to a cemetery so it took me a couple of nights to sleep properly ???? The property itself is spotless, very peaceful and a stones throw from the beach and local village pub. I definitely stay here again.

Lovely village location, beautiful view from verendah and very good quality local beach , pub and two cafes. The barn is very close to the SW Coast and perfectly situated for getting around on foot or by car to both peninsulars.

Church Barn is holiday accommodation perfection. Perfect house, perfectly equipped, perfect location.

We had a wonderful week's stay in Church Barn. The property was very comfortable and well equipped, and was perfectly situated for exploring the coastal paths and the surrounding area.

A well equipped and comfortable cottage for a relaxing break in a beautiful spot.

Church Barn is the best holiday property we have stayed in. It really made our holiday.

This is the best self catering holiday property we have stayed in and we have been having these type of holidays for over thirty years. The standard of the accommodation, attention to detail, provision of equipment and location are second to none. We will definitely come again.

a lovely cottage in a very nice location,no pasing traffic yet close to everything,2min walk to the victoria inn which does good food but booking needed,3min walk to a great beach,and the coastal footpath.

Church barn is a lovely peaceful welcoming cottage, with a beautiful little garden so well thought out. The sea view from the verandah is super, we love Perranuthnoe and this is the loveliest place we have stayed in the 20+ years we have been coming here.

We liked the peace & quiet, the lovely garden, the sea views and the good food at the local pub.
