Trennal Barn - a holiday cottage that sleeps 4 guests in 2 bedrooms
This is a beautiful stone cottage that looks like it has been part of the scenery for years but was, in fact, a derelict barn that had fallen into complete disarray until it was lovingly rebuilt by the owner. There are cleverly designed windows and Velux skylights that make it a surprisingly bright and welcoming cottage, a wide bi-fold door that opens from the lounge into the garden, a terraced area to the rear of the property and a good sized garden. Both bedrooms are spacious with a master bedroom and family room and a truly luxurious bathroom with separate shower and bath.
Trennal Barn is situated just outside the quiet hamlet of Godolphins Cross and is a couple of miles inland from some of the south coasts best beaches, Praa Sands is south facing, sandy and has lifeguard cover during the season, it can have quite large waves and is frequented by surfers when the conditions are right. The main Helston - Penzance road provides good access to all modern amenities and tourist attractions from St Michaels Mount to Flambards with a wealth of pretty little bays, promontories and traditional fishing villages.

We stayed at the barn in March. It was extremely warm and comfortable andvery well equipped compared to other holiday cottages we have stayed in.
The garden is completely enclosed and a good size, which was exactly what we needed for our Labrador-he had plenty of room to run!
There were plenty of logs and kindling for the wood burner which we lit once during our stay.
The kitchen is very well equipped with several sizes of pans, roasting dishes and tins.
It was lovely watching the rabbits playing in the fields behind the barn while I was brushing my teeth!
There is excellent dog walking right behind the barn where you can walk for as long or as short a walk as you want and Praa Sands is a beautiful beach just a short drive away.
All in all it is a lovely place to stay, very peaceful with lovely walks around. I'm think we will be returning.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage was spacious, airy, tastefully decorated and very cosy. The location was excellent for getting around landsend and the Lizard peninsulars. The only concern was that the garden wasn’t totally enclosed, the wire fencing at the back of the garden had been partially flattened, presumably by the horses leaning over and an inquisitive dog, interested in the field of rabbits could easily escape. Also the steep drop of the lawn/stone wall onto the paving next to the cottage was a potential danger to children and dogs that are running/playing in the garden. As a result of the above two concerns we were unable to let our dog off of the lead in the garden which would have been nice.
Great break in a quality property
Brilliant location for getting to lots places ....Gwithian Sands,
Porthleven, Falmouth, St Ives to name but a few.
A quality property , very well equipped and tastefully furnished .

Very clean and a great location
This is a lovely barn which is very clean and tidy with good furnishings. It is well equipped for cooking your own meals.
We arrived to a lovely home made Victoria sponge biscuits and some milk which was very welcome.
Emma the owner was great in finding the DVD remote and dealing with our query quickly and efficiently.
We have stayed at Trennsl Barn twice now and really enjoyed both times. Would definitely stay at Trennal Barn again
Comfortable Warm Barn
Great that they allow dogs and the Garden is contained for their safety, very good walks right outside. The Barn itself was very comfortable, very warm, with a good log-burner for winter months. Less then 2 miles to Praa Sands Beach which is outstanding, easy for Penzance, St'Ives, Helston etc. Would use again.
Praa Sands in the South West of Cornwall is located between Helston and Penzance. The town contains many facilities including a shop, pub, post office and Praa Sands Gold Club. The nearest large supermarket is Morrisons towards Penzance. The extensive beach stretching from Rinsey Head to Hoe Point is extremely popular with the whole family, Prussia Cove, Perranuthnoe & Marazion are the nearest beaches, all within a few minutes drive. When the North Coast is 'blown out' you will find the surfers flock to Praa Sands for its powerful waves coming straight in from the Atlantic Ocean. Just inland from the beach is Pengersick Castle which dates back to the Bronze Age. Nearby Helston is famous for its Floral Dance in May, a day when the whole town stops and dresses up for the days many dances through the streets. From Penzance you can take the Scillonian for a day trip to the picturesque Isles of Scilly, well worth a visit if you have never been. 10 minutes down the road lies Marazion famous for St Michaels Mount, home to a medieval castle and a working local community. St Michaels Mount is accessible by causeway at low tides, or by boat. The castle is leased from the National Trust by the St Aubyn family who reside at the property maintaining and working the grounds.
Trennal Barn is only 1 mile from the beautiful beach and surf at Praa Sands and about the same distance from Rinsey's rocky cove (NT). Prussia Cove film set for 'Ladies in Lavender' and Godolphin House (NT) of 'Poldark' fame, are nearby. Four miles away is the market town of Helston, full of Cornish history and tradition, with its Furry dance in early May. For children of all ages there is Flambards Theme Park next to Culdrose Air Base famous for many air sea rescue missions. There are sights to be seen around Goonhilly Earth station where the large dish Arthur is now a listed building. Try your hand at riding a 2 wheeled Segway. These together with the Seal Sanctuary at Gweek and the nearby coastal village of Porthleven provide any holidaymaker with a wealth of interesting visits. Only 7.5 miles away is the lively town of Penzance where the Scillonian offers trips to the Isles of Scilly. St Ives is only 14 miles away on the north coast with its beautiful bays and artistic areas.
Trennal Barn is central for the areas and villages of the Lizard, Helford, Land's End and Mousehole. Facilities for golf, sailing, course and sea fishing are all available within two miles. You can take country and coastal walks or visit local country pubs for well-priced meals or shop in the local super stores at Helston and Penzance. There are a wealth of gardens to explore. The mines at Lelant, Geevor, Bottalack and Poldark are a short drive away. The Minack Theatre and Porthcurno beach are well worth a visit. There are world famous art galleries at St Ives and Newlyn.
