This recently overhauled barn conversion provides compact accommodation, which would be ideal for 4 people (although it can fit 6, making use of the sofa bed in the upstairs lounge/bedroom).

The local town, St Just, is a 10 minute walk up the lane and has all the amenities you could need: Co-op supermarket, two butchers, bakers, green-grocers, 5 pubs, excellent fish and chips (local fish), cafes and newsagents.

I am offering you my family home for your holiday, and my aim is for you to enjoy your stay in this lovely part of the country as much as I enjoy living here! Lots of helpful local information (as well as useful bits of equipment) along with a warm welcome await you here at Phoenix Barn in the Cot Valley, just outside St Just. (Pets are welcome, incidentally.)
