About Porth Barn

A barn conversion on the Roseland peninsula that the whole family (and the dog) will love.

It’s just as well that this stone and slate barn was lovingly restored when it was no longer in use by the farm, as it now makes the perfect stay for a Cornish beach holiday. Only a five minutes’ walk to sandy Towan Beach, you could spend your days lazing on this small slice of the Roseland Peninsula. 

If it’s quality family time you’re after, Porth Barn has a spacious sitting room for games and a separate dining room for family meals. There’s also a picnic table outside next to a brick built charcoal barbeque for alfresco dining. And there’s no need for pup to miss out on all the fun, as Porth Barn can accommodate up to two dogs. 

Other must see spots nearby, include the rock pool haven at Porthcurnick beach, the harbour village St Mawes and the secret coves of St Anthony Head, which are  all well worth a visit. For shops, pubs and art galleries, head to Portscatho. Just opposite is the traditional Porth Farm House and Towan Cottage and down a narrow track nearby is Penhaligon's, a cosy retreat for two.

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 through to 5 Acorns at the highest level. 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.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose, safe and clean. Running water and a WC are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities (details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage). Bedding, linen and towels are supplied (with a few exceptions, which is again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. Generally a 1 acorn cottage does not have wifi. Examples of a 1 acorn offer include Cartref, Wales and Rosedene, Worcestershire.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high sleeps to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 acorn cottages have wifi and, similar to a 1 Acorn cottage, the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic in their offer. All 2 (and higher) Acorn cottages supply bedding, linen and towels. Examples of a 2 acorn offer include Engine Cottage, Cornwall and High Hallgarth, Cumbria.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small sized kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage. Examples of a 3 acorn cottage include the Mustard Pot Cottage, Norfolk and Rose Cottage, Isle of Wight.

4 Acorn: these cottage have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally it is likely to have added comfort extras. The ratio of bathrooms to guests will be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers as opposed to over bath showers. Examples of a 4 Acorn offer include Portland House, Dorset and Stepper View, Cornwall.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage. This is the highest offer available. The furniture is of high standard, and has real comfort for modern living. Examples of a 5 Acorn cottage include The Old Rectory, South Wales and West Gate Lodge, Yorkshire.
