What makes this barn unique

The location of the barn is a feature as it is restful and quiet after a busy day sightseeing or beach bathing it is an oasis of peace to spend the evening. Being away from the town star gazing at night is perfect with no artificial light to detract.

Tasteful traditional cosy cottage - home from home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this lovely cottage with our 2 children and it had everything to meet our needs - well apart from a dishwasher but I hadn't planned on cooking much! Tucked away down a country road but not too far from a local pub and situated well for trips to St Ives, Porthleven and Gwithian. Great open plan living/dining area and a lovely garden. Owners were very helpful and we would return to this property

Prospidnick is a small country hamlet on the edge of Helston Market Town and Porthleven, which is beautiful small habour town. We can offer easy access to lovers of the countryside or holiday makers looking to enjoy the stunning coastal towns and beaches, such as Praa Sands and St Ives. We are only 15 miles from the most southwesterly point of the British Isles - the Lizard Peninsula with it's stunning Coastal footpaths and Kynance Cove beach.
