Welcome to An Mowhay (rhymes with Cow-ee), a 200 year old converted hay barn, tastefully converted to provide a comfortable holiday cottage for four people. It also provides the setting for short therapeutic retreats, (see below).
An Mowhay is located in a stunning part of West Cornwall in the hamlet of Brane, close to Penzance. Brane hosts a working farm and a few other holiday cottages nearby. Owner Simon, lives close by and a warm welcome awaits! We are dog friendly!
An Mowhay is well equipped to provide a homely environment during your stay in Cornwall. The cottage includes:
Two bedrooms each with a king-size bed (second king-size bed can be made into two single beds if desired)
Good quality towels and bed linen
TV and DVD player
Access to washing machine on request
Fully equipped kitchen
Large garden with picnic area
Beach gear; (body-boards, windbreak, pop up tent, fishing nets, crab lines, boules)
Short drive to local beaches
Beautiful cycles and walks from the front door
Ten minute walk to Carn Euny, neolithic settlement
An Mowhay is situated in the small hamlet of Brane, just west of Sancreed and five miles from Penzance. The hamlet is 1.5 miles off the A30 and lies in the depths of the farming community of West Penwith. Footpaths lead in all directions, including Carn Brae, St Just, Sancreed, St Buryan and Newbridge. The cottage offers quiet and peaceful respite after a day on one of the beautiful beaches or visiting local attractions.
West Cornwall is home to artists, potters and art galleries such as the Leach Pottery in St.Ives, The Tate and the award-winning Penlee House Gallery and Museum. Contemporary art can be found at Newlyn Art Gallery. Local artists exhibit their work throughout West Cornwall and many studios are open during the season. See Newlyn Art School for a range of art classes run by local artists, (http://www.newlynartschool.co.uk/)
There are lots of stunning beaches in easy reach, suitable for families with young children and for novice and experienced surfers. Nearest beaches are the popular Sennen and Porthcurno and the less well known Porthchapel, Gwenver, Pedn Vounder and Nanjizel.
The famous Minack Theatre is a short drive away and throughout the summer offers a range of outdoor plays and events.
For the walker there are stunning routes inland and along the coast.
We also offer coaching retreats. If you are seeking time out to explore challenges that you may be facing in your life, these retreats provide a supportive and nurturing environment in which to do this. Structured coaching sessions are provided, combined with time to reflect and spend time in the beauty of Penwith, a retreat provides a unique opportunity for you to address the issues you bring.

We loved An Mowhay, a gorgeous cosy converted Hay barn. Beautifully restored in secluded rural Cornwall surrounded by farm buildings in a small hamlet.
We stayed in February so welcomed the cosy wood burner in the mornings and evenings! Long walks and fabulous beaches nearby. Highly recommended for anyone - couples or a family of 4 seeking solitude in wild and windy Cornwall. Simon & Ros (and Dora!) are great hosts and have everything you need in the cottage. Would def return.
Great place to chill out in - quiet and peaceful yet minutes from Sennen and Gweniver beaches, Penzance and all good things on the Penberth peninsula. Comfy cottage with everything you need - patio was lovely (on the one nice day of weather we had!!!) - but also loads to do if wet. Nice walk to St Just (1 hour walk), Minack theatre = a must, Gweniver beach with the dog was great (there is a car park on the top - not marked on maps), Smart Surf school in Sennen was excellent, St Mike's Mount is a must too- cheers Simon, Ros & family for making it so peaceful for us - see you again
Just back from a lovely spring holiday in An Mowhay near Penzance. The cottage is great for a family of four, very well equipped and in pretty surroundings. The owners (and Dora their gentle golden retriever) are very welcoming and the garden and patio are a great space for playing and relaxing in. A short drive from fantastic beaches such as Sennen Cove, Porthkernow and Portgwarra, a scenic ten minute walk from the grass-covered remains of an iron age settlement, which our children loved to play hide and seek in. Very good value.
this cottage was perfect for a base for West Cornwall,it was very comfortable, clean
and just right for 4 adults,Simon and Ros were very good hosts and their fresh bread would get "star baking" on "Bake off" a must is the Minack theatre We would recommend this any time
Wir haben uns in der Gegend um Lands End sehr wohlgefühlt. Der Kontakt zu Ros (Vermieterin) war unkompliziert.
Die Lage des Hauses ist perfekt.
Das Wohnzimmer ist gemütlich, aber die Küchenzeile ist doch recht abgenutzt. Die Töpfe und Pfannen müssten erneuert werden und der Geschirrspüler benötigt eine Grundreinigung.
Die Matratzen im kleinen Schlafzimmer sind komplett durchgelegen.
Das Badezimmer ist dringend renovierungsbedürftig.
Aber das größte Problem im Haus ist die Feuchtigkeit im Erdgeschoss, vielleicht ist es bei trockenem Wetter besser.
Very lovely and cosy house in a tiny village. Carn Euny is very close, and very intersting. A nice walk with the dog and the daughter :-) The surrounding beaches are stunning and beautyful cities are very easy reachable, eventhough driving was a real challenge for us ;-)
Thanks for wonderful holidays (also from Leyla to Dora)
Definately two weeks are not enough!
The cottage is situated in the heart of the local farming community, within a short drive of beautiful beaches and coast land walks. The area is an important bird watching, archaeology and art and crafts area. There are ample surfing and swimming beaches and numerous art galleries to visit. The area offers a wide range of cafes, pubs and restaurants. Penzance and St Ives are busy shopping towns, popular with both locals and visitors. There are some children's theme parks within 30 minutes drive and 15 minutes away, the famous Minack Theatre, an open air venue set on the cliff top at Porthcurno. St Ives is home to The Tate Gallery, the Leach Pottery and the Barbara Hepworth Garden Gallery. There are endless rural and wildlife walks outside the cottage, taking you in all directions. Nearby are a number of internationally revered sub tropical gardens.
