About The Barn

The Barn is one of four stunning self-catering properties on Goongillings Farm, tucked away in a peaceful, picturesque spot in the Cornish countryside. Skillfully converted from a former stable block, The Barn sleeps 6-8 guests in three bedrooms plus a quirky sleeping gallery. It is very popular with larger families and groups of friends who enjoy the space and serenity of the peaceful location that is only a two minute walk from the reputable Trengilly Wartha Inn, and a 10-minute walk from The Queen’s Arms in Constantine.

Goongillings is in a beautifully situated location. A 15 minute walk down the farm takes you to the tidal Helford River at Scotts Quay (which belongs to the owners) where swimming and messing about in boats is possible, all among 100 acres of Organic pasture, woodland walks, and a freshwater lake.

Constantine is a friendly village in between the Helford River and the Carnmenellis granite ridge. As well as a great pub, excellent cafes and a well-stocked general store, the village has a 13th Century church, local museum and a thriving community and arts hub called the Tolmen Centre. If you like whisky, then you’ll love the village off-licence which sells around 500 different types! There is a regular bus service that runs between Helston, Falmouth and Truro so you can easily explore the region without a car, or spend some time walking around the area then catching the bus back if you are tired.

Cornwall is justifiably famous for its incredible beaches but the scenery inland from the coast is also pretty amazing. Goongillings Farm is on the northern border of the stunning Lizard Heritage Coast where you can explore for days and discover a beautiful view around virtually every bend. Start at the Helford River, which flows inland from Falmouth and is a haven for boating and fishing. Go for a paddle at Grebe Beach or visit the magnificent gardens at Trebah or Glendurgan.

There is a vast choice of beaches to enjoy whether your goal is to spend a few hours surfing, to build a gigantic sandcastle and poke about in the rock pools, or to spot dolphins from the headland or a boat tour. Although the Lizard Peninsula enjoys warmer, drier weather than the rest of Britain, it can still be inclement. Falmouth has a rich nautical history, great shopping and a variety of pubs and cafes, and plenty of things to do whatever the weather, and is only seven miles from The Barn. Truro, around 14 miles away, is equally as exciting with a stunning cathedral, interesting museum, shops, galleries and boutiques.

The Barn at Goongillings Farm offers you the ideal balance between a taste of country life, the vibrant hum of bustling towns and cities, and the endless days of pleasure and tranquility that comes from being by the water.

Location (Cornwall)

With the exception of a twin "sleeping platform" on the mezzanine level, all accommodation in The Barn is on the ground floor, and the property is child and pet friendly. Depending on availability, The Barn can be booked together with one of the three other self-catering properties at Goongillings Farm to accommodate larger parties.

Accommodation Comprises:

  • The majority of space is comprised of a vast open plan living/dining/kitchen area. Glass French doors and vaulted ceilings with exposed beams makes it feel light and airy, while the thick stone walls help to regulate the temperature all year round. Multi aspect windows make the most of the natural light and the views of the garden and courtyard.
  • Living area comfortably furnished with ample seating positioned around the wood burning stove. There is a television with DVD player so you can enjoy flopping in front of the fire with a glass of wine and your favourite box set in the evening after a busy day.
  • Dining area which has an antique wooden table that seats eight guests with ease.
  • Fitted, country-style kitchen, separated from the living and dining area by a low breakfast bar. The fitted, hand-painted kitchen units contain crockery, cutlery and glasses for eight people, as well as an excellent complement of cooking utensils, pots and pans. A ceramic hob cooker and dishwasher make light work of cooking and cleaning up, and the owners have also provided a microwave and washer-drier.
  • Family bathroom with an electric shower over the bath, WC and vanity unit with handbasin.
  • Master bedroom with a double bed and en-suite with shower, WC and hand basin.
  • There are two further twin bedrooms, each with two single beds, storage and reading lights.
  • The gallery level is accessed via a ladder staircase from the central living area. It has two single beds.

Outside: The appeal of The Barn continues outside where there is a sunny, south-facing patio with garden furniture and a barbecue. The expanse of garden is ideal for children and dogs to play, and guests also have access to a small meadow at the rear of the farmyard as well as a hard-surface tennis court (please bring balls and racquets if you wish to play). To the front of The Barn, a spacious courtyard offers private parking for several cars.

Additional Information: The Barn has oil-filed central heating and broadband WiFi. All utilities, linen and bath towels are included in the cost of hire. Guests are requested to bring their own beach towels if required. Well-behaved pets are welcome with prior agreement from the owner - please let them know when booking. No smoking.
