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.

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.
