Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday barn in Mylor Bridge - The Granite Barn
Detached Barn conversion with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, close to sea.
The Granite Barn is a beautiful farm building which have been converted to the highest standards. It forms the focus of a traditional small farm, (Little Goonreeve Farm) which has hardly changed since the 1950’s.
The Barn sleeps up to six in three separate bedrooms. The living area is upstairs to take advantage of the double height space and views. The large space has a seperate dining area and a fully equiped chef's kitchen. Ideal for entertaining.
The master bedroom has a king size bed and an ensuite bathroom. The second and third bedrooms have either king size double beds or 2 single beds each. The luxurious family bathroom gives a welcome sanctuary.
There is a private garden and open access to 20 acres of beautiful farmland.
Little Goonreeve farm is on the Mylor peninsular between Falmouth and Truro in an area of rich farming country with rolling green grazing pasture. We are well placed to enjoy the amazing attractions which Cornwall has to offer.
Our farm is nestled in the Mylor downs, within the rich rolling hills of the Mylor peninsular, bordering on the stunning coastline 'The Carrick Roads' which provides some of the best sailing and water sports in the country. The location is rural but placed within a short drive (5 miles) of Falmouth or Truro with interesting shopping, cafes, cinemas and local amenities. Its an ideal Mid Cornwall base for visits to the usual attractions of the Eden Project, surfing beaches on the North coast, and the wilds of the Lizerd Peninsular and further west to St Agnes and Zenna. Close by is the famous waterside Pandora Pub (our local) and Mylor Yacht harbor.
Visitors are free to wander in the 20 acres of rich grazing land with abundant hedges which provide an ideal habitat for local wildlife.
Freerange Beef, pork, eggs and organic vegetables are available from the farm and we are keen to promote the providence of British food. Visitors are welcome to participate in any farm activities, such as feeding, as little or as much as they want or just relax and unwind in your rural home. It's up to you.

The sunny master bedroom has a kingsize bed and enjoys views out onto the south facing garden. It has a Travatine tiled ensuite bathroom with a generous shower.

One side of the open plan room allows for the sitting area. It is bathed in sunshine and takes advantage of the views over the farm and away to the hills to the west.

About James Davis or Fleur Davis
Fleur James William and Madelene moved to Little Goonreeve Farm in 2007. Fleur grew up in the farm down the hill from us (Barras Moor Farm) with her 3 sisters. We spent the early years of our married life in Middlesex trying to work out how we could manage a move to Cornwall and took the plunge when our eldest ,William, was about to start secondary school.
James Davis or Fleur Davis purchased this barn in 2007
Why James Davis or Fleur Davis chose Mylor Bridge
We knew and loved the area so the problem was to find a house. It took us a year and we ended up in almost the first one we ever saw which Fleur remembered from her youth. It was in a sorry state but with a lot of hard work we have stripped back and rebuilt four separate dwellings.
What makes this barn unique
We were attracted to Little Goonreeve Farm because it had changed little since the 1950's when the Milking Parlour in the middle of the yard was built. One of our aims of the restoration was to keep the essence of a small working farm.
As a family we also care about the providence of food and have benefited from the rearing of livestock in a low intensive environment.
We love our farm and aim to pass that onto our guests.
We also realise that people have worked hard for their holiday and everyone enjoys a bit of luxury now and then.
Guestbook comments from the owner
A perfect base for visiting our daughter and family and for exploring some new and some favourite old haunts. The barn is very comfortable and spacious. Thanks to Fleur and James for a lovely welcome.
