Ludgvan, Cornwall Cottages
The Little Barn is a really charming barn conversion, idyllic for two, midway between Penzance and St Ives and close to the village of Ludgvan, The detached property has been sympathetically updated and is tucked away behind high gates and thick hedges, providing a wonderful place to relax and unwind in. Inside you've got cosy living space with a farmhouse-style kitchen while upstairs the bedroom has stunning picture window complete with wrought iron balustrade.
The owner, who is a local artist, lives in the adjacent property and generously allows guests the use of the lovely sub-tropical garden she has created of terraced lawns, an orchard, woodland, a stream and several ponds. In the garden you'll find a great variety of rare and exotic plants, which provide interest and colour throughout the different seasons, some of which you've probably never seen before! (see Photo Gallery).

"My Aunt inspired this trip. She had rented from these owners for 12 years and raved about the beauty of Cornwall. The Little Barn is located in gorgeous garden of which walking through daily is a must! The property is perfectly set close to everything and the property management were great in helping us navigate our sightseeing. The property itself is stunning and has been very well taken care of to maintain its Cornish charm! The Little Barn was very clean and well stocked. If you want the real Cornish experience.... book this place!! We will be back!"Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2017-07-10
"The barn itself is just lovely - thick stone walls and a tiny seating area outside protected by a dry stone wall covered in flowers. It is tranquil and homely. The large gardens are amazing - lots of hidden pathways and a huge variety of plants and shrubs. The cottage is comfortable and well stocked with the essentials. Nearby local pubs and shops make self catering easy."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2017-07-06
