Carwinnick Barn has three bedrooms, two double both with en suite shower rooms and one twin. There is a further bathroom with shower.

On the ground floor there is a large lounge with exposed stonework and log burner, separate kitchen with built in appliances.

Further details outdoors

The two barns together with the cottage stand in gardens and grounds extending to around 2 acres. The majority grassed and making it an ideal area for children to play and explore. There is a small copse where bluebells flower in the spring. In addition we have set over 3,000 daffodil bulbs since we have been here!!

The former enclosed farmyard is a wonderful sun trap and catches the setting sun and is laid out with limestone paved patios to provide both sitting and outside eating areas, weather permitting!!

We live on site and although we provide an information pack, are only too happy to give you advice on what to do and see in this very special area.

The West Country region

Pam & I moved to Cornwall in 2005 and to Carwinnick in 2006. We love both! If you are looking for peace and quiet, the main disturbances are owls, pheasants and the cry of the buzzard. We live on site in Swallows Barn (there are plenty of those too!). Whilst converting the barns we also found we had a wide variety of bats including both Greater and Lesser Horseshoe!

As we are on site we are only too happy to recommend a local walk, pub, restaurant or beach. I play golf at Perranporth but can recommend other golf courses in the area.

Carwinnick is a delightful rural retreat on the edge of the Roseland Peninsula, yet convenient for both the north & south coasts. Truro is 20 minutes drive and beaches on both the north and south coast are readily accessible.


We are located on the edge of the Roseland Peninsula, a hidden gem of unspoilt beaches and rolling countryside and acknowledged as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We have walked extensively on the coastal paths and have several circular walks for the energetic.

We can organise golf locally and keep trying the local hostelries and restaurants if advice is needed.

For those wishing to visit the excellent Lost Gardens of Heligan & Eden these are 4k & 11k away.

There is a thriving street market in Truro (13k) on Wednesdays & Saturdays and this cathedral city is well worth a visit.

We had a lovely stay at Carwinnick Barns. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Lovely accommodation, perfect for our group of eight adults, two toddlers and two babies.
