About Kenneggy Barn

A Cornish small barn set in a large natural garden. Easy to get to on the Penzance to Helston road it is set in farmland, secluded from the one neighbour.
With Praa Sands three minutes away, Newtown and Ashton close by, a garage with shop and pub even closer the barn has seclusion and privacy without being isolated. The beach cafe at Praa Sands (The Beachcomber) is unusual in offering home cooked food and is great for a cooked breakfast .The well established beach shop (stonesreef) offers everything needed for the beach including the latest wet suits, good advice and surf lessons.
The barn has plenty of off road parking, patio with furniture and BBQ being big enough for playing games. There are grassed, garden areas and a large deep pond with frogs, newts and fish. The sea at Praa Sands a mile away can be seen from the garden area.
Dating from around the 1700s and steeped in history the barn has its lounge/dining area on the first floor..Both bedrooms are on the ground floor with the main bedroom featuring a four poster bed and its own entrance to the lit, patio area. The second bedroom has twin beds and wall mounted TV .There is central heating and an electric coal effect fire. The bathroom has a shower over the bath..
The garden is a natural garden and we have seen lots of wildlife including foxes, frogs and badgers. There is sometimes an owl.
We hope you will have a lovely holiday at the barn and ask for a refundable security deposit of £35 on payment of final booking fee,
