Further details indoors

Featuring original beams and thick stone walls the reverse level lounge diner is the highlight of a traditional old Cornish barn. It has a new microwave, a cooker, dishwasher, ipod dock, radio, tv and dvd player. There are 2 sofas that convert into double beds.

The master bedroom is en suite. There are 2 adult bunk beds in the smaller room, and a double bed in the third room, with fitted cupboards. There is a separate shower and toilet room. There is underfloor heating throughout. Large double doors lead onto a big sun patio. The utility room has a washing machine and tumble dryer, and facilities for drying outside.

All bed linen and towels are provided.

The barn will sleep more than 6, but over that number will need to sleep on the sofa beds which are in the open plan area upstairs (see rental rates for costings of bedding for more than 6)

There is excellent mobile coverage, and free wifi. Due to the thick cob walls the wifi coverage can vary with the weather! We have tried a variety of techniques to improve the signal in the barn, with very limited success. If you are desperate for a constant good internet signal then I would use 3G. Alternatively guests are welcome to come into our house to use our signal by arrangement. Or leave your screens at home and relax!

Further details outdoors

Set within 12 acres, there is plenty of space for all. A large sun patio looks out over the lawns with managed garden beyond. The garden has some children's playthings that guests are welcome to use under adult supervision. The garden is only shared with us. All are welcome to explore the farm and its animals - pigs, sheep, chickens, ducks and our pet springer spaniel. There is a small (3 acres) area of woodlands, with a walk down through it to our stream.

There is a very large amount of parking, and a storage shed for bikes or surf boards.

Update on the farm autumn 2014

What a summer! Amazing temperatures, sun, and any rain was very short lived and light.

Because of the weather in the summer we've been getting a lot of enquiries for next year.....I'm sure it will be even better!!

Further details

Changeover day is Friday, please vacate the premises by 10.00 a.m. on the day of departure, and arrive after 16.00, although you can easily leave luggage earlier by arrangement.

Bed linen and internal towels are provided (please see rental rates for details of bedding if more than 6 occupants). We suggest you bring your own beach towels.

No smoking inside the property please.

Note access is via a half mile farm track. We have had all manner of vehicles along it from tandems to cement mixers to porsche boxers. It can take some adjustment to after smooth city roads though! There is another steep tarmac road that is shorter in the other direction.

Out of the peak season we are happy to talk to couples who may wish to pay less than the full rate which is based on a family using the barn.

The Isles of Scilly region

Close to Eden Project, Truro and St Ives this is the perfect location for a summer stay in Cornwall.

* Just a few minutes drive from a number of safe, sandy beaches (Perranporth, Chapel Porth, Trevaunance Cove, Trevellas Porth and Porthtowan)

* Five minute drive from Perranporth resort and St Agnes village

* Easily accessible from the A30, we are within easy reach of attractions such as Eden Project (40 minutes), The Tate St Ives (30 minutes) and St Michael's Mount (40 minutes)

* Great and varied walking direct from the barn, the South West coast path is very close.


Perranporth and St Agnes are just 3km away - both have great beaches and amenities.

Perranporth has a spectacular 4 km long sandy beach with awesome surf and all the facilities of a busy tourist town.

St Agnes is a traditional Cornish fishing village, with quaint streets and a protected beach.

Linking the 2 is the coast path - accessible within about 15mins from the barn. This section of the path is fantastic, with vertiginous cliffs and a huge variety of wildlife.

Obviously within Cornwall, there are facilities to suit all types of interests - golf, surfing, windsurfing, flying, parachuting, fishing, walking, cycling, music, art galleries, restaurants, kayaking etc etc

We stayed at Sunbury Barn in August; we were very lucky with the weather! We had a wonderful week. The barn was clean and had everything we needed. The owners were lovely and the garden space, play ar… More

Thanks for your great review. I have updated the information in the description with respect to the access. We use it daily in our standard (non 4WD) vehicles but obviously we are used to it. These Cornish access tracks can take a little getting used to, but of course do guarantee our solitude and peace!

"Great Place for Active Families"

This is a small and comfortable barn conversion in a good location. It has a big garden with goal posts, a volleyball/badminton net and a trampoline. The kids has a great time with lots of activity.… More

Thanks for your great review. You thrashed us at football! The comments about the wifi are fair. We continue to try to find ways of throwing the signal through the thick walls, but 3G coverage is excellent. We also will let residents use the internet in our house by arrangement.

"Lovely barn in fabulous location."

A very comfortable barn conversion in the middle of lovely countryside. Very well located to get to some amazing beaches; we loved Porthtowan and Trevaunance Cove for the surf. The barn had everything we wanted and use of Jim & Carolyn's enormous garden, which the children loved. We felt very welcomed and Jim was very helpful with where to go and the best surf! If we had been able, we would return this year but sadly already booked!

"This was our 4th visit and the best yet"

We love coming to Sunbury Barn, the accomodation is excellent and the location superb, great views, only 2 miles from the beach but so quiet and peaceful. The children love spending time in the huge garden, grounds and exploring in the woods. We cycle and walk the coast path straight from the barn, love all the animals and just have a great time. Booked for next year already
