Experience - The Area...
Penberthy Barn is an exceptional example of a beautifully converted barn which has been tastefully furnished and is superbly equipped. The property shares its peaceful location with four other cottages which are all set around a feature pond. Detached and spacious with reverse layout accommodation and the bonus of a private hot tub set in a private large garden makes Penberthy Barn a worthy contender for your Cornish holiday shortlist.
The village of St Erth with its pretty church is just a short drive away. In St Erth you will find a friendly local pub (The Star Inn) and village shop as well as train station (with mainline connection) which can transport you through lovely Cornish countryside and along the coast to St Ives and is a trip well worth doing.
St Ives is less than 7 miles away and easily accessible by car. The nearby town of Hayle has a 'Walkers Welcome' status thanks to its abundance of well-maintained footpaths and trails. The town of Penzance with high street of shops and selection of supermarkets is a twenty minute drive from St Erth.
