About Kelvin Collins

The family own and run the well known Trevena Cross Nurseries at the end of the lane where you'll find excellent homemade cakes and scones amongst other more plant-like delights. We converted the barn in 2010 to provide an ecologically sound and wonderfully comfortable holiday home which we love sharing with our valued guests.

Kelvin Collins purchased this barn in 1965

Why Kelvin Collins chose Cornwall

The dilapidated barn has always been part of the nursery but it took some time to have plans approved and then free up the time to do the work. The long delay was worth every minute as we're delighted and proud with what we've created.

What makes this barn unique

Just a short drive to some of Cornwall's secluded and stunning beaches, Trevena Barn offers guests a unique opportunity to experience the best of West Cornwall whilst lounging in the comfort and seclusion of this special place.

Wonderful Spacious Barn - Absolutely!

  • 5 of 5

The description only tells half the story - the property is so welcoming in location, space and surroundings. Any issues dealt with by the owner immediately. Great walks and local wildlife. Property located well off the beaten track - so very quiet, though short walk to Pub and Post office. Nursery a great attraction - especially for breakfast! Only wished we had spent more time here.

Home from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weeks stay here. The house was spotless, warm and very comfortable. We like to cook and found it very well equipped. We all felt comfortable from the moment we first stepped in to the house. Rachel brought us some scones, jam and cream which was a lovely gesture and much appreciated after our long drive. I am normally very fussy about where I stay and so finding a holiday home is normally a big deal for us! Not any more. I would be more than happy to return here or even try out one of the other houses. Trevena Cross Barn is in a great location, lovely house and very helpful owner/company to deal with. Thank you!

Lovely, Quiet and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of five loved staying at the Trevana Cross Barn. Close to so many things to see and do in Cornwall, but slightly out of the way so it was very peaceful and quiet. Lovely garden, comfortable beds and living room. Would definitely recommend!

Beautifully peaceful holiday barn

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at Trevena Barn. The garden was lovely, enjoyed by all our teenagers for badminton, adults for reading and drinking wine and greatly enjoyed by our dog. The Barn had everything we needed. Rachel the owner was lovely, as was her dog Max. The local beaches and coves are brilliant for surfing, swimming and rock pooling. Porthleven is a few minutes away and great for eating out and coffee. A perfect place to stay for any age group.

Spacious, comfortable accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the Barn in late May/early June 2015. The location served as a good base for exploring the area and easy access to the harbour (and restaurants - particularly The Square, where we ate several times) of Porthleven and the beautiful beaches nearby, especially Praa Sands.

The village of Breage is a very short walk away. It was a shame that the village pub was closed during our stay but we understand it is being refurbished to open again soon.

The Barn itself had ample room for our party of five (two grandparents, two parents and a one year old). The master bedroom with en suite is enormous but the other double bedroom is also a good size. The owner, Rachel, kindly provided a travel cot, but the children's bedroom also had bunk beds for four so could easily accommodate a larger family.

The kitchen has a large dining table for meals and is well equipped and the living room is a nice place for playtime / crashing out in front of a DVD.

Weather during our stay was a bit mixed so we did not use the garden a huge amount but it would be a lovely spot for a barbecue and there is plenty of room for little people to run around.

The booking process was entirely hassle-free too,.

All in all, we were very happy with the Barn and would certainly recommend it.

Stunning coast of West Cornwall is on your doorstep and the gastronomic delights of Porthleven is just down the road. The tin mining heritage of the region led to its UNESCO designation of a world heritage site and the famous art colony of St Ives with it s modern Tate gallery is just a few miles away.

This is an ideal location for a relaxing family holiday or for one filled with calorie-burning adrenalin, or maybe a happy balance between the two.
