Bian Mor is a bright, airy barn conversion in a small farm complex which formerly belonged to the National Trust. The farmhouse dates from the 1650s and the barns from the 19th century. The garden affords fabulous ocean views, and is a sun trap when the weather co-operates. There is a gentle 10-15 minute walk through woodland to the nearest beach, which is on the South West Coast Path, and it is possible to walk to Falmouth or Helford Passage along the coast.

The space
Bian Mor is the smaller of 2 barns, renovated in 2016, and sleeps 1-2 in studio-style accommodation. There is no separate bedroom, but the living area is spacious and efficiently designed; there is a king size bed with memory foam mattress. It would be ideally suited to single travellers looking for the freedom of self-catering accommodation.

We have equipped Bian Mor with everything necessary to make your stay as comfortable as possible, including TV, WiFi, cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, coffee machine and washing machine. The bathrooms has a shower, WC and sink unit. All linen and towels are provided.

We are happy to allow well-behaved dogs, but we do charge a fee of £20; please be sure to add it to you booking.

Please note this is self-catering accommodation.

Our other property, a 1 bedroom barn conversion, is nearby - listed on Airbnb as Keynvor.
