Our 19th Century converted self-catering barn has reversed accommodation to maximise the natural sunlight and stunning views from the first floor.

Middle Lanherne Barn is equipped to the highest standards with the finest bed linen, bathrobes and towels and the toiletries in the bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen complete with Coffee Machine, and a living room with Italian leather sofas, High Definition flat screen TV, sky free view and play station & Wii games consoles, plus a complete library of DVDs for your use during your stay. Outside on your patio you will find a hot tub, ample seating, gas BBQ, sun loungers and even a patio heater. We think that it’s the attention to detail that makes all the difference.

Our guests are free to walk, play and picnic in our fields – it’s a safe environment for children to enjoy and play freely – they can even help collect their very own eggs from our chickens in the morning to take back to mum to cook for their breakfast!

We welcome our guests’ pets (we know they are part of your family as Shadow, Katie, Poppy, Tally & Mutty are part of ours!) There is a secure garden for your dogs to enjoy the views too, and fields for plenty of walks! If you did want to have a day out without them, as we live on site, we are happy to dog-sit for you so you can relax and enjoy your day without worrying about your four-legged friends!

Feel free to bring your bikes (or borrow ours!), we have safe storage for them, there is a boiler room attached to the barn, which is the perfect place to store your wetsuits & surfboards! We can even accommodate your horses or ponies if you wanted to bring them with you! Just let us know and we’ll sort it out!

The West Country region

We are definitely tucked out of the way… our nearest neighbours are in the farm at the bottom of the lane that leads to Middle Lanherne Barn. We are situated between St Mawgan and St Eval, close to Mawgan Porth and Watergate Bay beaches and the popular seaside towns Newquay and Padstow.

We are ideally situated to enjoy all that Cornwall has to offer, being approximately 6 miles from Padstow and Newquay and 4 miles from Watergate bay with its extreme academy & Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen restaurant. In fact there is no shortage of fabulous restaurants locally to enjoy and sample some of the finest cuisine in Britain.


With so much to see and do during your holiday you will be spoilt for choice!

We are so lucky to have The Extreme Academy at Watergate Bay only a few miles away with two miles of perfect beach to play on and an awesome adrenalin sports school offering lessons on Surfing, Kite surfing, Traction Kite, Wave ski & Stand-up paddle surf as well as great places to eat and chill out – if this activity floats your boat (groan – sorry!) then you can’t get anywhere better.

For those Adrenalin Junkies amongst us the Adventure Centre at Lusty Glaze beach offers a vast array of adventures on the water, land and cliffs! You can even finish the day with a massage in one of their beautiful beachside cabanas!

There are so many extreme sports in Cornwall and the best place to find out all about them is the Adventure Activities Cornwall website. We are sure that you will be spoilt for choice!

If you fancy a slower paced water based activity then why not try Canoeing with Encounter Cornwall – they also offer scuba Diving, cycle hire, and hiking.

There are plenty of walks in Cornwall – just bring an ordinance survey map, and off you go! One of the most famous walks is The Camel Trail – a 17 mile traffic free route based on an historic railway track. It’s virtually flat for the entire length and is suitable for everyone, dogs and cyclists are welcome as are horse riders (at a walk only!), there are some codes of conduct to observe and it’s free to use.

Carnewas & Bedruthan Steps close to St Eval is one of the most popular destinations of the Cornish coast with spectacular cliff top views stretching across Bedruthan beach. There is a charge to park here as this site is run by the National Trust.

Golf, Fishing and Horse riding is all available locally.

St Eval Kart Circuit is situated a couple of miles away from us – it’s a massive outdoor 1.2km track! Great fun for all those budding Jensen Buttons amongst you!

There are many attractions in Cornwall to visit during your stay with Newquay, Padstow and Watergate bay being so close but Cornwall has a host of other attractions on offer that your only problem will be working out how to fit it all in!

Minack Theatre – An open air theatre dramatically situated on the cliffs at Porthcumo near Land’s End and hosts a season of plays and musicals from May to September.

The Hidden Valley Discovery Park – Discover one of Cornwall’s best-kept secrets! An extraordinary place that is nothing like you have experienced before. Where imagination has flowed into every little corner, with hidden delights waiting in all sorts of places – where all the family can have fun together!

Lappa Valley Steam Railway – Living Steam in a magical setting! In the unique historic setting of the Lappa Valley you will find loads of fun things to do and discover! There are three separate miniature railways running through this oasis of conservation, where wildlife thrives in a protected environment. It’s a great place to enjoy peace and quiet away from it all….

St Michael’s Mount – Explore the amazing island world of St Michael’s Mount ?and discover legend, myth and over a thousand years ?of incredible history…Stroll across the causeway where a legendary giant once walked. Follow the footsteps of pilgrims. Boat hop to an island where modern life meets layers of history. Discover a medieval castle, a sub-tropical paradise and a close-knit island community.

Tamar Otter and Wildlife Centre – On your visit to the Tamar Otter & Wildlife Centre you will see British and Asian Short Clawed Otters playing and being fed close at hand. There are Fallow Deer in a woodland enclosure and you will see Wallabies and Muntjac Deer roaming around the 21-acre grounds.

Paradise Park – Cornwall’s top wildlife sanctuary and Jungle Barn indoor play centre. ?Your family will love a day in Paradise . . . whatever the weather

The Eden Project – The Eden Project in Cornwall was built in a disused clay mine, transforming it into a rich, global garden where people can learn about nature and get inspiration about the world around them.

Tintagel Castle – Its wonderful location, set high on the rugged North Cornwall coast, offers dramatic views, and its fascinating ruins and stunning beach cafe make it a perfect day trip. Tintagel Castle is steeped in legend and mystery; said to be the birthplace of King Arthur, you can still visit the nearby Merlin’s Cave.

There are so many great restaurants to choose from it would be impossible to list them all but here are a selection to whet your appetite!

Rick Steins Seafood Restaurant – Padstow – bookings essential

Rick Steins St Petroc’s Bistro – Padstow – bookings essential

Stein’s Fish and Chips

Jamie Olivers Fifteen Cornwall – bookings essential

Restaurant Nathan Outlaw – Rock

Paul Ainsworth at Number 6 – Padstow

The Beach Hut – Watergate Bay

The Falcon – our local pub! Good pub grub and just down the road!

Wow! What can I say - (Blushing a bit!) Thank you!

Having rented quite a few homes around and about on our travels, finding Middle Lanherne Barn is a real tonic.It is clear from the outset that Michelle has set up this rental property to be presented … More

Thank you so much! You've hit the nail on the head there - thats exactly what we wanted to provide - a home from home which is sorely lacking in so many rental properties all over the world! Middle Lanherne Barn is a culmination of our holiday experiences from all over the world - some good, some not so good!

We feel that your holiday should start from the moment you arrive at our Barn & the welcome pack means that even if you haven't picked up any provisions on the way down you have a delicious breakfast and cornish cream tea to enjoy before you have to think about shopping! The wine - well that is just an extension of the hot tub experience!!!

We genuinely love animals here and love it when our guests bring their four leggeds to stay! As for our towels - they are just washed in the same way as I do mine - I do not like scratchy towels!!!

We look forward to welcoming you back to your oasis anytime! x
