About the property

Penwarne Manor

Very recently renovated, Penwarne Manor is a collection of lovingly converted barns available to let.

Five, Grade II listed stone cottages, each one sympathetically renovated to an extremely high standard with all the modern amenities you would expect, whilst retaining the charm of an 18th century building.

The accommodation is reverse-level, allowing the open-plan living space to be flooded with sunlight and provide the best views of the sea. Quality and style exist throughout this spacious barn; Egyptian cotton sheets, fluffy towels, rain showers with Philip Stark and Duravit sanitary ware. Free BT infinity broadband available.

The barns are beautifully furnished with vintage finds nestled alongside contemporary colours and state of the art technology. They are centrally heated and have a wood burner, perfect for those winter evenings.

Outside there is a decked area with a BBQ and your own private garden, perfect for watching the sun go down with a glass of wine.

Portmellon beach is about 800m away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have loved our stay at The South Barn. The photographs on the website are beautiful but being here has exceeded our expectations. Thank you for the lovely cake, flowers, card, delicious wine and farm shop goodies.

The beds are so comfy! Our 9 year old has had so much fun playing with the other children from the other barns.

We would recommend future guests with children visit the beach at Pentewan Sands and take a rubber ring to ride the "lazy" river into the sea! We loved The Hidden Hut and had a great day there.

It has been a fantastic holiday. The South Barn has certainly contributed to this. We will definitely be returning asap. We go home tomorrow much more relaxed.

Thank you very much.

Lovely cottage, wonderfully peaceful setting with great hosts

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a great welcome (huge homemade carrot cake, bottle of wine etc!) with thoughtfully provided instructions to a local walk and lovely card from Nathan and family. Perfect start to the holiday.

The cottage was spacious, clean and well equipped with all the mod cons of home. Lots of room to relax inside or out with a lovely outdoor space for barbequeing or a separate area for relaxing on the grass.

The setting was very peaceful and right next to the starting point for a couple of good walks. There is a great play space for older kids and loads of toys provided.

Would definitely considering staying again and exploring more of the brilliant local attractions such as the Eden Project or spending time on any of the beautiful beaches.

Overall great cottage, great hosts, great holiday.

Fabulous - real WoW factor!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely family break staying in the South Barn. We thought the barn itself was amazing, with wooden rafters and exposed brickwork. The location is great, with only a short walk into Mevagissey.

The welcome pack that was kindly left showcased some of the local produce - who knew Cornish wine was so good!

Many thanks

Perfect little hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Almost reluctant to put my review on here as I want to keep it secret !! Couldn’t have been more delighted with our stay - the stone barn was so well designed and appointed , with such attention to detail ...hugely spacious lounge /kitchen , 3 bedrooms. Plenty of parking which can be tricky in Cornwall . The kitchen was fully equipped so we could cook comfortably ( we even did a roast dinner one day ) plenty of glasses, plates, cutlery , egg cups ( we had dippy eggs with the lovely local eggs left in our welcome pack so were chuffed with that ! ) . The welcome pack was such an unexpected treat - milk, local bacon, eggs, sausages, bread, marmalade, cheese, crackers even a home made carrot cake and hand written welcome card .

There was also tea ,coffee, sugar, oil, salt, tin foil , bin bags , washing up liquid etc etc - so often we have arrived somewhere and had to go out and buy essentials like washing up sponges or washing up liquid but none of that. We had a tesco shop delivered to us on the Saturday ( the owners even offered to put it away for us if we got it delivered on the Friday before we arrived ) and were all set for a few days - really wish we stayed longer !

Beds were comfortable and the two bathrooms huge and stylish - great big towels which I loved ! It was also perfectly placed for walking into the beautiful town of Mevagissy - prepare for a steep walk back up but there are plenty of lovely restaurants and pubs all round the harbour to fortify yourself before the walk back. We were lucky with sunny October half term weather but it would have been fine just to get the log burner going and stay in ! Nathan and Vicky the owners have done a wonderful job of restoring these barns and have created something very special . Thankyou for a wonderful stay . We hope to come back very soon next time we need to soothe our souls and enjoy Cornwall.

What a fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Penwarne Manor. We have two young children and have stayed both times in the Picture Window. Our children loved the cows in the field next to the barn who often had a look to see what we were doing! Our little boys also loved the space outside and being able to run and play on the trampoline. Very modern and tastefully decorated with all the equipment and more for a two week stay. A very generous food hamper was provided with a yummy cake. The owners are great and not intrusive. It was sad to leave!

Penwarne Manor is flanked by beautiful woods, beaches, country lanes and coastal paths. The nearest beach is Portmellon, a family friendly cove which provides a safe environment for swimmers. It also has a local pub.

The village of Mevagissey is a 10 minute walk away. Featuring numerous shops, cafes and a park. It is also one of the few working harbours in this part of Cornwall.

Within a 10 minute drive are Gorran Haven (another family friendly beach), Hemmick Beach (beautiful and unspoilt) and Caerhays Beach.

Other places to visit within an hour are St. Mawes, Padstow (great for hiring bikes to explore the Camel Trail), Newquay, Wadebridge, Falmouth, Truro and Watergate Bay. We’re ideally situated for exploring both the North and South coasts.

The Eden Project is nearby, around a 20 minute drive away. The Lost Gardens of Helligan (including the excellent Lobbs Farm Shop which sells a wide range of local, organic produce) is only a 10 minute drive away.

Golf: Carlyon Bay Golf Club - The 18-hole championship golf course is one of the finest in Cornwall and is set in breathtaking coastal scenery.

There's an attractive 9-hole approach course, a practice ground, and two putting lawns.

And if you're a novice keen to improve your swing, there are resident professionals to provide tuition.
