Keynvor 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
Sympathetically renovated, we have equipped the barn with everything necessary to make your stay as comfortable as possible, including TV & DVD player, WiFi, cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, Nespresso coffee machine and washing machine. The bathroom has a large 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 let us know, and we can add it to you booking, or you can pay in cash on arrival.

Please note this is self-catering accommodation.

Our other property, a studio style barn conversion, is nearby - listel on Airbnb as Bian Mor.
