Number 69 Maen Barn Number is an attractive apartment on the Maenporth Estate. It's in an ideal location as it's close to the leisure centre, a few minutes' walk from the beach and a ten-minute drive to the bustling seaside town of Falmouth. It's decorated in neutral shades but the artwork and soft furnishings provide bursts of colour.
Step into the living room and you'll instantly think of the beach; the laminate floor and comfortable sofas are the beige of the sand, while the blues in the soft furnishings speak of the sea. It's a tranquil space, packed with personality. You'll love the seaside-touches in the artwork and quirky ornaments. The dining area has a modern Shabby Chic table and chairs, perfect for a cosy supper or for a family game of cards. The kitchen is fitted with up-to-date, glossy white units and contemporary biscuit-coloured tiles. You'll find everything you need here to keep your family happy for the week.There's a toilet and shower room on this floor too, which means showering off the day's sand will be twice as fast.
Upstairs to the master bedroom which has a minimalist design. It's decorated in a simple cloud-white which is calming, and provides a perfect background canvas for the stripped pine furniture. The second bedroom is a twin, and similarly styled. The family bathroom, tiled in a cool, sandstone colour, has both a bath and overhead, electric shower to suit everybody's needs. You'll also find a heated towel rail in here to ensure those swimming towels are kept warm and dry.
Downstairs again, and out through the patio doors and onto the tiled terrace, where you can enjoy an early evening get-together for cheese or wine, or a delicious afternoon cream tea, but remember - jam first; we're Cornish!
We'll pop in a bottle of wine, Taylors filter coffee, Smugglers tea, milk and a selection of Cornish biscuits, ready for your arrival.
Number 69 Maen Barn has been awarded a 4 Star rating by Quality in Tourism. There is a returnable £100 deposit against damages on this property.
You'll have 29 acres of mature gardens to explore, plus full use of the leisure facilities, including the heated, indoor swimming pool.
The Maenporth Estate is just two miles from Falmouth and overlooks the beautiful Maenporth Beach. It's a private complex with a coded entrance gate, making it safe and secure for all guests.
Set in 29 acres of natural woodland, with stunning views of the cove, it's a perfect base for family holidays. You'll find two all-weather tennis courts, a children's play area, and, of course, the Leisure Centre where we have our indoor, heated pool, sauna and Jacuzzi. There are pool and table tennis tables - all free of charge.
The famous award-winning Cove Restaurant is on site, or if you'd prefer something simple, try the Life's a Beach Cafe - you guessed it, on Maenporth beach, for fresh crab sandwiches or a Cornish clotted cream ice-cream. Two miles along the coast and you'll come across Helford Passage and the wonderful Ferryboat Inn which specialises in serving local seafood dishes. From here you can catch the foot ferry across to Helford Village, or hire a rowing boat or paddle board for the afternoon.
Maenporth's a sheltered cove with shallow waters, making it perfect for all kinds of family beach activities: the little ones will love paddling, splashing daddy, and clambering through rock pools. There's plenty of sand and piles of pebbles for sand castle building, and beautiful clear water for swimming.
Arvor Sea Kayaking offer guided kayaking trips throughout the year, and Cornwall Divers will take you on a scuba diving course from the beach! And, at low tide, you may spot the famous Scottish trawler, Ben Asdale, that was wrecked off the Maenporth coast on 30th December 1978.
The nearest town is Falmouth - the third largest natural harbour in the world - take a boat trip along the Carrick Waters to a smuggler's cottage, or hop on the ferry to St Mawes. Visit the Maritime Museum, great for children with its hands-on approach. Catch some Grand Medieval Jousting at Pendennis Castle. Or simply sit with a cold glass of white wine and watch the boats glide by.
Whatever you choose to do, you'll be sure to unwind from the stresses of life, and simply relax...
