A beautifully converted barn set in a beautiful rural setting and only 500m from Praa Sands beach. The barn is ideally located equidistant from Helston and the Lizard peninsular and Penzance and the Land’s End peninsular. The beautiful mile long sandy beach of Hendra and Praa Sands is just a short walk down the lane, as is the spectacular coastal path. Hendra Wheal Barn is perfect for exploring the whole of South West Cornwall with St Ives and Falmouth 30 minutes away and Truro only 40 minutes away. Internally the barn has been sympathetically converted retaining much of its character, whilst achieving a contemporary and high quality finish. Externally the barn benefits from a small terraced area with garden table and benches and sea views; perfect for soaking up the evening sun with a glass of rose!
