About the property

Set in 100 acres, enjoy space and seclusion at The Long Barn

Refurbished in 2017 The Long Barn provides spacious and comfortable ground floor accommodation for four people with a superb open plan living area with a vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and oak floor. The room incorporates a well-equipped kitchen and ndining area with a lovely sitting area around a wood burning stove. A rear door leads out to a safe, enclosed, private garden with an area of lawn with patio furniture and a barbecue. There are two bedrooms, one with a king size four poster bed and the other with twin beds, one has a pull out mattress for families with 3 children. The large family bathroom has a power shower over a corner jacuzzi bath.

The Longbarn sits within a group of private barns within a stunning National Heritage Site tucked away in a quiet, sheltered location close to Porkellis village. It feels like the middle of nowhere but is just minutes away from the market town of Helston and the south coast at Porthleven. The farmhouse and cottages are surrounded by 100 acres of private land, a haven for wildlife for anyone who appreciates the fascinating worlds of fur, feathers, plants and flowers. Its paths, streams, ponds and woodland are home to many rare species of animals, birds and butterflies and its unrivalled peace is a tonic in itself. With masses of open space and no near neighbours (other than the owners) it is perfect for children, who can explore and enjoy it for as long as they have the energy.

Well located for access to all the best that west Cornwall has to offer, the coastal town of Falmouth and holiday hot spot Porthleven are both within 20 minutes drive. Porkellis is home to a good foodie pub and there are plenty of fine eateries, to choose from in Porthleven and Falmouth. If you crave a day at the beach then head to Falmouth to Swanpool, Maenporth and Gyllygvase or Gunwalloe and Praa Sands in the west.

The Long Barn is beautifully furnished, well equipped and for a relaxing break in the country.

1 or 2 dogs welcome at £25 per week.

***PLEASE NOTE THIS IS PROPERTY HAS A FRIDAY CHANGE OVER DAY AS STANDARD. *** Short breaks and alternative days may be available by agreement.

An ideal base for exploring South Cornwall. Quiet and peaceful location for a relaxing holiday retreat. Owners are friendly and helpful, nice touches like tea, milk, biscuits and flowers awaiting us on our arrival. Beautiful accommodation with everything we needed for a great holiday. Would

definitely recommend the local pub, The Star Inn at Porkellis which has friendly and welcoming owners and fantastic food. We will definitely look to return in the future for our holidays.

A real Cornish beauty

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we drove up the lovely drive with the horses on one side and the cottages in the distance we had a feeling we had made the right decision to book the Long Barn. We smiled and nodded, (all week).

The stay did not disappoint. The accommodation was perfect and the decor was exactly to our taste. Our young boys loved exploring the croft.

The owners were lovely and friendly and offered lots of local tips for days out and beach adventures.

We came away longing for the next visit. We've booked for later in the year and can't wait to stay at the Long Barn, Garlidner Farm again.
