Housed in a 16th-century building, Penvith Barns combines the old-world charm with modern hospitality and scenic views of the rolling hills. Cornish beaches, local country houses and gardens, as well as the gems of Looe are at guests’ fingertips, while Fowey, the Eden Project and Land’s End can be found a bit further afield. Visitors can also get close up with farm animals living on site.
The en suite rooms boast country vibes and come complete with TVs, fridges, and welcome trays including fresh coffee and hot chocolate. Guests can also make use of the on-site DVD library and look through some books and guides about the local attractions.
Breakfast options range from a continental spread and traditional full Cornish to gluten-free dishes and daily specials.
Groupon’s Guide To Cornwall
From Bude to Land’s End, Cornwall encompasses everything from chocolate-box villages to vast Atlantic coastlines and vibrant surfing hubs. As residents are rarely more than a half-hour drive from the sea, there’s no surprise it plays a huge part to Cornish life, with busy harbours and Michelin star awarded seafood restaurants allowing fish to go from boat to plate in 24 hours.
With clubs, bars, and extreme sports, Newquay has plenty to offer for a youthful crowd, while family-friendly Falmouth has more sheltered beaches and all-ages day outs such as the National Maritime Museum. Away from beach life, grown-up St Ives is an established arts centre, home to the Tate St Ives, Barbara Hepworth’s garden and a wealth of independent galleries. Inland a little, the Eden Project’s greenhouse biomes create spectacular tropical environs and an otherworldly, space-age feel. Visitors can also buy into the local legends on Bodmin Moor or hike along the rugged landscape to catch a glimpse of the fabled beast.
