High class accomodation in a historical setting
We were 5 guests, my husband and I (aged 63) my Mum (aged 88) and my son and daughter in thier early 30's. The accomodation is first class, clean, modern facilities with one ensuite double bedroom (large walk in shower only), one other double bedroom and two single beds in the third room. There are hairdryers in the bedrooms and a shower and a bath on the ground floor.
The barn is decorated to a very high standard with adequate storage space and the beds are comfortable. The living area is upstairs and the bathrooms are downstairs so not good if you have painful knees like me and Mum!
The kitchen diner is very spacious and well equiped with dishwasher, washer dryer and fridge freezer. The lounge is also spacious but with quite modern, but the lounge furniture was not really comfortable to lounge on. There is a reasonable size TV with freeview and good internet if a little slow at times.
There are beautiful open fields on the estate and just along the road is an old gunpowder mill, now derelect which my daughter walked the dog's around most days, she said it was magical, like a fairy forest with waterfalls and wild woods. I didn't get to see this because I have arthritis in both knees and could not cope with the uneven pathways, but she took some lovely photos to show us all. Dogs need to be on the lead in some of the fields c/o horses and chickens, but can run free in the mill area.
The location is quite central so all the surrounding beaches and towns are about 15-45 minutes away in the car. We managed to park in the seafront car park at Fiscal beach and had a fabulous couple od sunny days there. Rick Stein lets the dogs in the restaurant which was a bonus for us on our first visit. Fiscal beach is dog friendly all year and there are a number of other beaches where you can run the dogs off lead to.
There are other cottages ajoining the barn and limited parking. There is a table outside in the courtyard but the cottage garden is across the driveway and our dogs managed to escape into the fields from there so do not let your dog's off lead int he garden.
We had a great time together and ate out most days, but there is ample room to entertain and cook for a family too.
It was very hot weather when we stayed and my husband said he would have liked some fans in the rooms, but that was his only complaint.
Hi Pam Thanks so much for your lovely comments! We would love to see you again.. The Mill or the Linhay may be a better option for your knees - the Mill is completely on one level with a luxury wet room and the Linhay has a few steps only. Also, they have direct access to their gardens. Warm regards Louise
Excellent cottage. Modern, clean, tidy with a real home feel. Gardens and grounds are fantastic and beaches are close by.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this lovely review. Much appreciated. We hope to see you again soon!
Perfect home and location to recharge your batteries
A lovely home set in an expanse of outdoor land. Perfect for a family of 5 and a pooch to escape. We would certainly return in the future when we visit Cornwall again.
Thank you so much! We look forward to seeing you again soon! Louise x
Tremayne Barn - July 2016
Tremayne Barn is beautiful and set in a wonderful location. Ponsanooth is a good base from which to explore other areas of Cornwall.
The barn itself has been beautifully renovated to a very high standard. The rooms are tastefully decorated, clean and very well maintained. The owner, Louise, is very friendly and on hand to provide advice and assistance.
The 3 cottages (Carvasso Mill and The Lindhay are also on the same site) are set in several acres of beautiful grounds which is very useful to explore if you have young children. The chickens (which our 2 year old granddaughter adopted) provided hours of amusement as well as freshly laid eggs.
This is the second time we have stayed at the cottages and there is no reason as to why we will not be going back again in the near future. Thank you to Louise and Andy (and the cleaners) for a wonderful holiday.
Thank you so much for this wonderful review! Much appreciated. Hope to see you again soon! Louise
Tremendous Tremayne Barn
A wonderful week at Tremayne Barn .From the moment we arrived when Louise met us to the moment when we reluctantly had to say goodbye I have only praise for everything about our stay.The lovely warm welcome and the little treats from Louise,Cornish butter to freshly laid eggs ,.A perfect family retreat ,we felt so refreshed when we left and look forward to a return visit.
Dear Lesley - thank you so much for this. It was an absolute pleasure to welcome you and meet your lovely family. So glad you had a lovely time. Hopefully we'll see you again soon! Louise x
Ponsanooth is a traditional Cornish village with a very particular heritage. It is home to the Kennel Vale Nature Reserve – a fabulous unspolit place to explore, walk and take in the wildlife and scenery of this lovely place. It also provides a great base for exploring the county more generally, being equidistant between Truro and Falmouth as well as being only a short drive to the North coast. Cosawes Barton is approximately 15 minutes' drive from Falmouth, 20 minutes from Truro and 30 minutes from the North Coast.
The Cathedral City of Truro is in the heart of Cornwall and offers a wealth of facilities for the visitor. Dominated by the stunning cathedral, it is one of the south west's most attractive cities. Lemon Quay plays host to many events throughout the year including the Cornwall Food & Drink Festival in the Autumn and the famous Truro Fatstock Show just before Christmas. Regular farmers markets occur every Wednesday & Saturday and there are also arts & craft markets on Saturdays. There is a wonderful range of shopping for the visitor including a wide range of more specialist stores. It really is worth a wander through the back streets and alleys to find some fabulous little independent shops and boutiques.
Falmouth is one of Cornwall's most popular places to visit because of its unique mix of attractions, water sports, beaches, history and places to eat. The National Maritime Museum Cornwall and Pendennis Castle are both high on visitors' lists of places to visit and the views from Pendennis on a fine day a truly magical. Falmouth is the sailing capital of Cornwall with its spectacular deep water natural harbour offering a haven for both cruisers and racers. Many events are held through the summer culminating in the famous Falmouth Regatta Week and associated shore side events.
For those wanting to take in the fresh air of Cornwall and blow away all stress, the opportunities for enjoying your time in this location are almost endless. From the sailing courses at Mylor Harbour or Stithians reservoir which are available throughout the summer (ideal for older children looking for an active holiday), kayaking days, fishing at Argal Reservoir, glorious cliff walks on the coastal path or cycling the old mining trails – simply take your pick.
The choice of local sandy beaches is also stunning – from Gyllingvase & Swanpool in Falmouth which are wonderfully sunny south facing spots, to the quieter and more secluded beaches of the Roseland (a particular favourite of the children of the current owners) which are only a ride on the King Harry Ferry away. You can take a longer boat trip to beautiful St Mawes for the day or sail around the estuary stopping off at either Trelissick Gardens or Smugglers Cottage for a cream tea!
