Willow Barn is quite simply lovely! It is a very well-presented and finished holiday cottage set deep in a quiet rural location in the lush Cornish countryside, but only minutes from many pretty sandy beaches and coves. This ’upside down’ detached cottage provides the best views from the living area and balcony. It has a bright, stylish, open-plan living area with original beams and a large balcony through the bi-folding doors where you can relax with a glass of your favourite tipple. The owner lives adjacent and is on hand should you need advice or assistance during your stay.

The historic fishing village of Mevagissey is 3½ miles away, with narrow lanes that all seem to lead to the pretty, bustling, working harbour. Here you will find many great pubs serving local food and ales, quaint coffee shops, and some great local independent shops. The Lost Gardens of Heligan, a formerly overgrown and ‘lost’ gem of a garden, has been restored and is worth a visit, even if it’s to see the ‘jungle’ and play hide and seek with the kids.

There are pretty sub-tropical gardens to visit, stunning scenery, quaint fishing villages, and beaches, many with sailing, diving, and kayaking. Porthpean, 4 miles away, is a favourite with the locals who kayak along the coast looking for seals that bask on the quiet beaches. The Eden Project is another world-class attraction within easy reach. Fowey is nearby, a seafaring town and former home of Daphne Du Maurier. It makes a great day out, especially for the restaurants and the cafés. You can catch a ferry from here to Mevagissey in the high season (weather permitting) and is a great way to see the coastline of St Austell Bay.

There is a wealth of activities locally including surfing, sailing, swimming, walking, horseriding, and many cycle trails with bike hire available. For golfers, there are plenty of courses from St Austell to Carlyon Bay’s excellent links course with stunning sea views. Beach 4 miles. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
