About Porth Mear Barn

A converted stone barn for 6 people, in a rural setting by the South West Coast Path.

Porth Mear Barn was built in the 19th century at the heart of working farmland. Animals still graze in the surrounding fields, but the Barn is now a warm and comfortable holiday cottage on two levels with walks from the doorstep and a distant view of the sea. You’ll be able to follow a path down to Porth Mear, a secluded cove only accessible on foot.

The front door opens into an open-plan living and dining area with a log burner laid for your arrival. The kitchen leads to the downstairs family bathroom with both shower and bath. Upstairs you’ll find a shower room and 3 double bedrooms: two are king size, and one can be a twin on request. There’s plenty of room to run around in the open outdoor space, which has picnic benches and a small barbecue. The laundry and drying room is reached by an external door.

There’s no street lighting here so you’ll enjoy dark nights and with an exposed setting, you’ll experience the drama of the weather and the seasons. For a sandy beach, head to Porthcothan just a mile away. There are walks to Carnewas for the Bedruthan steps, Mawgan Porth and Newquay in one direction, and Padstow in the other. Their beaches are within a 15-minute drive.

Skipper’s Cabin, a holiday cottage for 2 guests, is 30m away, and Porth Mear Cottage for 4 and Trescore for 3 are at the end of the track.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level.

The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet 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 (stated on the cottage's webpage). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

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 kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
