Restored Cornish Barns

Three of our holiday cottages – Avallen, Mowhay and Howthere are glamorous conversions within the ancient barns that are such a feature of Kestle Barton. Our fourth holiday cottage is the beautiful old farmhouse. All four have proper cooks’ kitchens, luxurious bathrooms and comfy beds. They have easy access to Helford village – the store, pub and tearoom and to the glorious countryside, cliff tops and beaches beyond. Underfloor heating, using locally sourced woodchip in the barns, together with wood burning stoves throughout, provides comfort all through the year. All profits go towards funding the arts at Kestle Barton.

Booking is through Forever Cornwall Unique Retreats.
