You have a choice of two outside seating barbecue areas, one has a parasol for protection from the sun, the other is under a weather proof pergola to enjoy all weather outside relaxation, with a hammock seat to kick back in.

After a day’s adventure, you will find Loafers Glory the perfect place to return to unwind with a cold drink in the garden or conservatory, or maybe cook with fresh herbs from the garden on a the barbecues, reflecting on your day and planning the next.
The entrance to Loafers Glory is through the double doors of the Conservatory which is arranged as a Dining Room with bone china tea and dining service. On a fine day you can throw the doors open and eat al fresco under the pergola by the pond or by the figs and grape vine. A large radiator, blinds, HIFI and sofa allow privacy, comfort and flexibility throughout the year in the conservatory. A romantic dining atmosphere overlooking the enclosed garden stocked with magnolia, hydrangea, roses and fuschia is quite special. We are fortunate to have an abundance of wildlife in this quiet spot which you can watch from the comfort of your 'home away'.

About Shelley Thorpe
Your hosts, Shelley and Peter have not looked back since moving to Treverva from the nearby Harbour town of Falmouth ten years ago. We have spent many years between us holidaying and living in Cornwall, working in Engineering, the Health Service, Education and Marine Industry. Previously from Leicester and Liverpool, a desire for a slower pace of life and chance to indulge in his hobbies of water sports led Peter to Cornwall, much as Shelley's parents some 33 years ago. We also enjoy travelling and recently extensively toured the UK staying in numerous Guest Houses and B&B's in search of our ancestors.
Shelley Thorpe purchased this barn in 2002
Why Shelley Thorpe chose Falmouth
We are still surprised to be finding new delightful areas in this part of Cornwall (beaches, creek-sides, villages and gardens), which we would be happy to share with you.
The main barn was used as a headquarters by the local land army in the 2nd world war.
Loafers Glory is named after the boat which Shelley's parents bought when realising their dream all those years ago.
What makes this barn unique
We have been lovingly modernising the property over the last 10 years and think we have managed to build a high quality holiday experience which we ourselves would be delighted to receive.
There is so much to see and do, just a few planned events:
Grand Medieval Jousts at Pendennis Castle throughout the year
Music in the Park throughout the year
Falmouth Oyster Festival 9 - 12 October 2014
Falmouth Christmas Late Night Shopping 4, 11 & 18 December 2014
Henri Lloyd Falmouth Week 7 - 16 August 2015
Guestbook comments from the owner
What a lovely place to stay. Ideal for our visit to search the area and visit some old surf haunts. We were able to use the location as a central point to explore Cornwall and return to a well equipped, very comfortable resting place. Really appreciated no traffic noise and no light pollution!
