About J Parminter
With computing and Food skills we both decided to move here and change our pace of life in this beautiful part of Cornwall. Still lots to do but in a different environment.
J Parminter purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why J Parminter chose Gerrans
Having loved this area since I was about 12, and having made many friends here over many visits at all times of year we moved to St. Just in Roseland a few miles from here. I saw these barns when they were derelict and decided to buy them and convert them to one residential and two letting cottages but mainly because they came with 15 acres of fields and I had a horse at the time with space to enjoy growing flowers and vegetables in the polytunnel. Really enjoyed doing the development on these character stone barns and made sure they were also as sustainable as possible without losing their charm. No regrets!
What makes this Cottage unique
The location is fantastic and it means we only have to walk for 5 minutes to the beautiful sandy Porthcurnick beach for a swim or onto the coast path. Jon loves fishing and can just pop through a field to get to the water and catch Bass. With Portscatho village just a 15 minute walk across the beach and St. Mawes another pretty harbour village a short drive away it's like being in a different world. There is everything you need in the attractive cathedral city of Truro and we can explore the whole of Cornwall from here with Penzance only 1hr 30mins away and the surfing in Newquay just 40 minutes away. Falmouth a boat trip or ferry ride away and all the gardens to visit in easy reach, oh and lots of great places to eat!

Jon and Judy were very welcoming and we had a wonderful week - walking and sightseeing in the beautiful Roseland peninsula. With good pubs, cafes and a farm shop within walking distance the barn is in a great location as well as being peaceful and handy for the coastal path and stunning beach.
Fantastic place to stay!
We enjoyed every second of our stay at this fantastic place which turned out to be a real home away from home for us. The barn was clean and well-equipped with everything we needed. Apart from that, we were blessed with lots of sunshine and the extraordinary hospitality of Judy and Jon!
A wonderful beach to enjoy sunny days is only a 5 minute walk away. You can walk to Portscatho in 15 minutes and you will find everything you need - we really liked the food at the Plume of Feathers!
All in all, the Higher Rosevine Farm is an excellent starting point to discover Cornwall - from walks on the beautiful coast path, enjoying the beach, discovering small towns and sights like the Minack Theatre, St. Michael's Mount, or the Eden Project to admiring beautiful sunsets at the harbour of St. Mawes while enjoying Fish & Chips there.
We will definitely come back to this beautiful place which we can only recommend to friends and relatives.
Hello, Mike, thank you for your lovely review. We really enjoyed having you, and are so pleased that you found Wreckers barn a comfortable place to stay whilst exploring Cornwall. It was great to see you all outside in the courtyard every evening eating al fresco and watching the sunsets. Hopefully we will see you again!

The renowned sailing waters of the Carrick Roads pass between St. Mawes castle and Pendennis Castle, both worth a visit.
