Barn | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 9
During the summer months, we rent our barns as one unit. Ideal for large, multi-generation groups of family or friends who want lots of space. The four-bedroomed main house,Tresahor Vean Barn, was once the hayloft and milking parlour to the local farm. It retains its traditional features, including huge arched windows, but now also has architect designed cedar and glass extensions providing a 40ft living/kitchen area, large enough for the whole group..
Included in the rental is our one bedroomed smaller barn, Owl House, which has its own living room/kitchen and bathroom. You can see further details for Owl by entering property no.178898 in the top right hand corner of the holiday lettings search page. Owl is available to rent separately outside the summer months.
Our seven acre holding is no longer agricultural, but is mostly planted to woodland. Owl and Tresahor Vean Barn face into the courtyard. Around the back and side of the houses there is a garden of about a quarter of an acre, with lots of space to play and sit, barbecue and dine. From the living room and the wooden terrace, there are views across uninterrupted countryside. This is a place surrounded by green, where the stars fill the sky. You can hear the owls call, the songbirds sing and the buzzards mewing as they coast the thermals. One guest told us that he was asked where he would like to be most in the world. "Sitting on the deck at Tresahor Vean, watching the moon, the early morning mist on the valley, the evening light."

One wing of the house (to the right of the front door) contains our own self -contained studios, with their own entrance. The studios will have minimal use during the summer and your privacy is ensured.
We offer a welcome pack of milk, a good loaf of bread, butter, eggs, ground coffee and tea - enough to survive on, say, until you get to the shops the next day! Washing up liquid, salt, pepper, dishwasher tabs, soap are all provided.

The West Country region
Cornwall is noted for its beautiful beaches and coves, and for its woodlands and rivers - and boasts twelve areas of outstanding natural beauty. It is the ideal holiday location for outdoor pursuits from gentle walking to abseiling and fishing. There are also plenty of historical and archeological sites to explore: castles, churches, stately homes and of course the art galleries, museums and world famous Eden Project.
Tresahor Vean Barn is situated in the narrowest part of Cornwall, with easy access to both South and North Coasts and to the Helford River. It is an area reknowned for its watersports, birdwatching, coastal and country walking.
The nearest village of Constantine has its own riding stables and a museum and arts centre with a lively theatre, music and film programme, where, for example, the world famous Kneehigh theatre company launch their smaller productions! There are gardens (Glendurgan and Trebah for example) and art galleries to visit and good cooking to sample both locally, at the prize winning Trengilly Wartha pub or the Potager cafe.
Golfing, fishing and water sport centres, boat trips and a choice of beaches are all within a 8-10 km radius The nearest town is Falmouth with its own theatre and cinemas and family friendly art gallery - and the award winning Maritime Museum. Falmouth also has a wealth of independent shops, restaurants, cafes and waterside and beachside bars and eateries. And the Georgian towns of Helston and Truro are not too far away either!
