Sleeps 2 in 1 bedroom (+ cot)

Howthere Barn is one of our most popular hideaways for two, and it’s easy to see why. Step though the unassuming doorway and you know that this is no ordinary barn-conversion. Howthere has been created with comfort in mind. Some guests come for a week and are seduced by the view of the garden to the extent that they barely leave the sofa. And whilst we would agree that it’s a very nice sofa, they would be missing out on the beautiful creek-side walks, cosy pubs, charming fishing villages, world-famous subtropical gardens, great restaurants, enticing art-galleries and pristine beaches that we are blessed with in this secret corner of the Helford.

Howthere Barn is a part of the ancient farmstead of Kestle Barton, the whole of which has been lovingly restored. Here you will also find the Kestle Barton gallery, with its changing displays, art workshops and beautiful garden. As well as Howthere, there is Kestle Cottage that sleeps four, two other barns sleeping six and eight, and the original Farmhouse sleeping eight — making this a great place to book separate accommodation with friends and family. You’ll find Kestle Barton Farmhouse, the Cottage and the barns, Avallen and Mowhay, on our website too…

The superb architectural quality or Kestle Barton has been acknowledged with several awards including the Conservation Category in the RIBA South West Town and Country Design Awards 2011, and the Green Apple Award 2011 for The Built Environment and Architectural Heritage.
