About Chenhalls Barn

A converted barn with panoramic views over Falmouth Bay and easy access to the beach.

Chenhalls Barn enjoys outstanding views over Falmouth Bay from its first-floor living room. Originally part of nearby Chenhalls Farm, this historic barn has been sensitively converted into comfortable holiday accommodation for up to five people. 

Enjoy a long, lazy lunch in the cottage’s private garden before taking a stroll down to the nearby beach. Carry on along the footpath to reach the Helford River. Here you’ll find the small village of Durgan with its exotic gardens, sheltered beach and former fish cellars. 

A little further afield is the typically Cornish town of Helston, and the Penrose estate. The estate is home to a wooded area surrounding Cornwall’s largest natural lake and perfect for explorers young and old.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
