Falmouth Barn Rental Photos and Description
Luxury Detached Single Storey 1 Bed Converted Farm Building

Loafers Glory has one double bedroom with an en suite shower room, making it ideal for a couple. There is an open plan living area with newly fitted kitchen and sitting room, as well as a tastefully decorated conservatory. Centrally heated throughout. 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.

You are welcome to use our free Wi-Fi internet network with your own mobile device or the SMART HD TV. There is a good selection of books, novels, guides and maps available for your use including cookery books. The Krups Coffee maker has proved to be popular.

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'.

The open plan oak floored lounge area is the perfect place to relax after the adventures of your day, with entertainment to ensure your holiday continues. There are two large leather sofa's for stretching out with Freeview SMART HD TV with Wi-Fi access and a neatly concealed Washer/Dryer.

The newly refurbished, well-equipped country kitchen includes a coffee maker, microwave, electric cooker and hob, fridge and separate freezer providing occupants with the perfect basis to self-cater.

The bedroom is tastefully decorated. The double bed is furnished with luxury quilt, pillows and bed linen. There is a dressing table mirror, hair dryer and wardrobe. Bath robes provided.

The bright modern shower room offers attractive facilities (bath sheets provided) electric shower, towel rail/radiator and toilet.

Secluded Garden with choice of outside dining patios, ample parking, central heating.

Easy access to many varied public footpaths for some fine walking or cycling from the doorstep.

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 32 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

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.

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

Henri Lloyd Falmouth Week 9 - 18 August 2013

Music in the Park throughout the year

Falmouth Oyster Festival 10 - 13 October 2013

Halloween Trail Pendennis Castle 26 Oct - 3 Nov 2013

Nadelik Sun Pendennis Castle - celebrate Christmas the Cornish way 15 Dec 2013

Falmouth Tall Ships Race - last week of August 2014

Honeymoon

Dear Shelley and Pete
Thank you so much for a wonderful week in your lovely little cottage! We couldn't have felt more welcome. A special thanks for the charming honeymoon decorations and the fresh flowers everywhere and the milk, saffron buns, soup etc. Not to mention the meticulously designed interior of the cottage - everything is very functional and beautiful at the same time - probably a nice team work of the two of you. We also really appreciated the guide books with all the useful recommendations for walks and sights. And finally we enjoyed chatting with you in the garden (which is insanely beautiful too)! Keep up the good work and let us know if your paths ever crosses Freibourg!

Superb

  • Submitted: Sep 14, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
A superb cottage in a lovely part of Cornwall. We were extremely lucky with the weather - almost Mediterranean - so we spent more time on the beaches rather than exploring the back ways and coastline - but it is always good to leave something to come back to.. Loafers is well equipped and very cosy - a peaceful place.

A perfect holiday home

Arriving exhausted Shelley and Peter could not have made us more welcome on our arrival. The cottage was immaculate with fresh flowers, cold bubbly and chocolates. No detail had been overlooked. We stayed for 6 nights and each day I would look for something different and always find it ( even picnic hampers, flasks and wind breaks for the beach!). The cottage was smallish but very cosy and made much larger by a lovely light conservatory. The shower was excellent and the bed very comfortable. Again even cosy, soft dressing gowns to lounge and relax. We found excellent walks nearby by a picturesque lake and the location was perfect for the whole of western Cornwall. Highly recommended and very good value.
Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to meet you both and we would welcome your return here when you next find yourselves back in England.

We arrived Saturday evening after a very long car journey. Shelley and Pete welcomed and settled us in, nothing being too much trouble to make us comfortable. I could write an essay about all the lovely things this property has to offer and its owners of course!!) - What a beautiful, relaxing haven.

Owner's Response: It was such a pleasure to meet you both, we'd welcome your return. You were right about the Spanish Brandy, we picked up a bottle today for our anniversary!

Owner's Response: We wondered how you'd fare as you were our first guests without a car, but you had such a great sense of adventure, seemed to manage really well and certainly had the weather in your favour. Wish you luck along life's travels - what a smashing couple you are. Best Wishes Pete and Shelley x
