About the property

East Trenean Farm

Three of the 18th century, grade II listed barns here at East Trenean Farm were converted in 2010 to the highest standards. The one bedroomed Linhay was converted in 2015. They all offer comfortable accommodation with a modern 5 star interior.

Free Wi-fi in all properties.

The three larger barns have a "reverse level" layout with vaulted living rooms (Water Mill and Threshing Barn), wood burning stoves, modern well equipped kitchens, lovely bedrooms and bathrooms.

The Linhay is a single story building but has a few steps between the rooms. The lounge has a fireplace with electric fire.

All bedrooms have zip-link beds which can be used as 2 singles or a king size double (just let us know your preference when booking).

Each of the three barns has it's own private garden, a small south facing patio area overlooking the courtyard behind the farm house and access to the farm's 10 acres of gardens and pasture.

The newly converted Linhay has an enclosed patio/bbq area next to the courtyard and stunning views from the lounge and bedroom over the gardens and down the valley.

Whilst here, why not de-stress with a soak in our 8 person hot tub, situated in the grounds of the farmhouse with views across rolling countryside and a distant glimpse of the sea.

About Ian Farr

Brenda and I moved to East Trenean Farm in February 2014. We met each other over 30 years ago when studying at Plymouth Polytechnic and fell in love with the area. Now, having spent too long as city dwellers, we have returned to the West Country to run East Trenean Farm.

We live in the main farm house and let the three 18th century, grade II listed stone barns and the recently converted Linhay. Each barn has it's own private garden, but also access to the farm's 10 acres of grounds.

The Farm's previous owners converted the three larger barns and we have converted the one remaining derelict barn into a comfortable one bedroom cottage - The Linhay.

This newly converted barn has stunning views from the lounge and bedroom over the gardens and down the valley. Please take a look at our web-site for details.

We look forward to welcoming you to our lovely hideaway in the Cornish countryside.

Ian Farr purchased this barn in 2014

Why Ian Farr chose Morval

We love this part of the country because of the great coastal paths and the proximity to wonderful sailing grounds along the south coast of Devon and Cornwall.

The barns have been converted in recent years and therefore benefit from the latest standards in terms of insulation, wiring and plumbing ! They are not draughty or damp. They have been decorated with a clean modern look, whilst retaining much of the character of the original some buildings.

The views to the south are wonderful and we have a distant glimpse of the sea.

What makes this barn unique

It is wonderfully peaceful at East Trenean Farm, close to the coast, but not in the hustle and bustle of town.

The accommodation has been decorated and equipped to a luxurious standard, with natural stone walls, oak floors, original beams exposed and comfortable beds and sofas.

Our water is from our own bore-hole, so lovely soft spring water on tap.

Free range eggs available from our hens (subject to their ongoing co-operation).

WiFi in each barn, so stay in touch while away from it all (if you have to).

Log burning stoves in each barn other than the Linhay. All have central heating.

Relax in our 8 person hot tub with views over the farm and down the valley to the sea.

Entertain the children on the swings or the trampoline.

First class accommodation in an idyllic setting with fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for seven nights in the Threshing Barn, one of four accommodation options at Trenean Farm.

The accommodation was first class, the barn conversions having been completed to a very high standard. Comfortable furnishings and well equipped kitchen making this a true home from home.

The secluded garden behind the property is perfect for having a BBQ or quiet relaxation in the sun. There is also a nice seating area in front of the property.

The property offers good wifi connections, important to some of us.

There is also ample parking for guests cars.

Looe with its extensive range of shopping and restaurants is only ten minutes away by car. Looe golf course is five minutes away.

The property is also well placed to access the many attractions in the area

The property owners provided a nice welcome pack and were very welcoming and on site to offer any assistance needed

Great place, fab tub !

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property from the moment we arrived. Travelling with my older parents it was a great space, we all thought it had been beautifully furnished and well equipped, with everything you needed, whilst being comfortable & homely. The super arrival basket & owners welcome were lovely, & we really enjoyed the home made cake. The jacuzzi was fab, so spacious & private, with great views. We are already looking forward to planning our next stay & have recommended to friends.

Beautiful quality accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 nights at the end of May 2016 as a couple. The quality and size of accommodation was first class, everything well thought out, the location beautiful (lovely views) and convenient. The owner's very kindly accepted delivery of our online shop which arrived before we did and unpacked this for us into the fridge/freezer etc. We also had a lovely and very useful welcome basket of goodies! We found the location very convenient for visiting places of interest in that part of Cornwall. Wish our visit had been longer and would love to return. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone.
