It is only moments from Porthcurnick Beach with the famous Hidden Hut or just a few minutes from Pendower, Towan and Porthbeor beaches. Surrounded by rolling countryside, there are numerous footpaths for the keen walker from St Anthony's Head (home of Fraggle Rock Lighthouse) along the coast towards Nare Head.
The barn itself has a large living room with freeview TV and a stunning round log burner, with French doors leading out to the private garden and patio area.

Portscatho and its neighbouring village of Gerrans are located on the eastern coast of the Roseland Peninsula, Cornwall, overlooking the dramatic Gerrans Bay. A truly peaceful waterside village, Portscatho is a lovely place for a holiday. There are miles of coastal and countryside footpaths to explore, particularly along St Anthony's Head. Portscatho was once a busy fishing harbour, but now it has become a haven for artists due to the striking light which is particularly good in the morning sun. More than anything, Portscatho is a relaxing place. The beaches such as Porthcurnick, Towan and Porthbeor are simply idyllic and these are only minutes from the village. With a superb local butchers shop, 2 great little pubs and a well-stocked local store, Portscatho and Gerrans are a lovely place to spend a holiday.
There are some stunning locations to eat on the Roseland including the Michelin starred Driftwood restaurant on the way down to Rosevine beach where the chef, Chris Eden, and his team deliver a truly special experience, you will obviously need to book this one early. There is also the Hidden Hut located above the field at Rosevine with its eclectic menus, convivial atmosphere, bring your own booze and social media driven events list! (Best find them on Facebook to see what is on!) The Hidden Hut has received rave reviews from the local and national press. Slightly further afield are the Nare Hotel and Quarterdeck with fine dining and dramatic views across Gerrans Bay, the world renowned Tresanton Hotel in St Mawes or the newly refurbished Idle Rocks Hotel. On top of this list there are some excellent country pubs in all of the local villages supporting Cornish produce and local beers.
St Mawes is one of the finest waterside villages in Cornwall. Situated overlooking an idyllic bay on the eastern side of the famous Falmouth Estuary, St Mawes has one of the mildest climates in Britain due to its proximity to the Gulf Stream. The sea is at the heart of the village and has helped to shape St Mawes from the little fishing village to the fashionable holiday destination that is so popular with visitors. A mecca for boating enthusiasts, St Mawes is a particularly popular sailing centre. Weekly club racing, village regattas and larger events are commonplace on the superb waters of the bay all through the summer.
St Mawes has so much to offer the visitor. St Mawes Castle was built by Henry VIII and is a splendid place to take in the views of the Carrick Roads. There are miles of coastal and countryside walks to take in and some idyllic beaches on which to relax and watch the world go by. The little Place Ferry takes visitors to explore St Anthony's Head or there are regular ferries to Falmouth. Being situated on the seafront, the village is also known for the restaurants and pubs that serve superb fish and shellfish dishes all year round.

Pendower Barn provided a good base to explore the area and walk the coastal path. Sufficient room for two of us - very peaceful. We were very grateful for the bottle of wine. We would recommend that guests bring a means of accessing the internet as certain instructions were lacking - the cooker (couldn't work out the main oven) and the woodburner. Although we have a wood burner at home, the model at Pendower Barn was somewhat idiosyncratic. Once we'd downloaded the owner's manual it was no problem. With luck (and a spot of prayer) the weather will be better for others which will obviate the need for the woodburner.

Guest from Coventry stayed for 7 nights.
My family recently stayed at Pendower Barn for a holiday and were delighted with the accommodation and the location. The accommodation was ideal for us with a young baby and 2dogs. We found the accommodation to be very clean and in very good condition and generally it created a welcoming, relaxing atmosphere. With regards the location, within short walking distance was the coastal paths and nearby beach which enabled lots of exploring. With a short drive you were also within easy reach of local attractions. All in all we had a marvellous holiday and this was a great place to stay, we also really appreciated the options of having a travel cot and high chair which saved us lots of room on our journey. We would definitely recommend this place to others and would like to visit again.
Guest from Totnes stayed for 5 nights.
Very comfortable barn in a great location. Loved the walk to the local beaches - about 15 minutes. We had lots of wind and rain but it must be a wonderful location in good weather. Secure garden for dogs too. Log burner seems to be a little tricky to get going. It doesn't roar away like our one at home.
Guest from Peterborough stayed for 7 nights.
We come to this area a lot and have stayed in lots of cottages and barns. This one was ideal for the dogs as it had a decent sized, fenced garden but an out door hose would have made life easier, especially when they were sandy. It was perfect to walk to Portscatho via Portcurnick beach although we now avoid this beach in the Summer as it's too busy. Pendower and Towan are the ideal beaches for dogs. The barn was fairly well equipped although the toaster didn't work unless you held it down and then it only toasted on one side, something that needs replacing. The oven only had one shelf and there were no oven gloves. I pulled out the one flat oven tray to cook a pizza on and it was covered in cobwebs and the mugs all needed washing before we used them as they were all stained. We did have an issue with the log burner when we turned up and had to try and use it because it was freezing weather but because it was cold it smoked the whole barn out. When the weather improved it was easier to use but everything did smell of smoke and the sitting room and kitchen do get cold in this weather, whereas the bedrooms were too warm. Apart from the niggles it was great for the dogs and we did all have a lovely week in our favourite place!
Guest from Newark stayed for 7 nights.
Location was perfect, we were visiting friends in Portscatho and also had some lovely walks on Porthcurnick Beach with our young Labrador. Cottage very well equipped with good quality and ample china, cutlery and glassware, also appreciated same quality of bed linen and towels. Comfortable sofas - in short everything we could have wanted and expected. Expect to return.
Guest from Radstock stayed for 7 nights.
We booked the Barn being a last minute decision to have a stress free week before the Christmas rush. What a choice, it could have not been better far enough away from the main city's of Truro and St Austell, both an easy 20 minute drive, but an easy 10 minute walk to the beach and only 20 minute walk to the local pub 'Plume of feathers' worth a visit, with the Eden Project is within 45 minutes. On arrival there was the nice touch of a bottle of red and milk for a cup of tea and the fire was ready to light and the heating was on. Plenty of home comforts, lovely and warm (being November). Also found plenty to do and explore being a new area, having normally visited the far West of Cornwall in the past. .
Guest from Reading stayed for 7 nights.
Pendower is a nice property in a great location, just a short drive to the lovely Porthcurnick beach or a slightly longer walk. St Mawes is great for boat trips to Falmouth or Truro, and of course you have Portscatho with Tatams that probably serves one of the best cups of coffee in Cornwall, all in all first class.
Guest from Newent stayed for 7 nights.
we enjoyed our holiday at pendower barn and would be happy to stay there again. the location was excellent and the accommodation provided everything that we needed. my only criticism is that the duvet covers were too thick for the summer, and since it is not possible to open a window in the bedrooms, a thinner one would have been preferred.
Guest from Ashton Under Lyne stayed for 7 nights.
We booked Pendower Barn as we loved the Portscatho area having visited friends staying in this area a couple of years ago. When we saw the location and the most important thing...they allow dogs, we booked it straight away as it had good feedback from previous visitors. The owner was very friendly in her e mails, and their were no problems booking etc. The price was reasonable also which was important. On arrival we weren't disappointed, the barn was clean and very well equipped, we stay in a lot of cottages and the kitchen especially had everything you could need. It was clean there were plenty of towels and there was a bottle of wine and milk in the fridge , a nice touch and wi-fi. Be aware the mobile phone signals on most networks especially Vodafone were very poor so bear that in mind, there is a phone at the house which allows incoming calls so we stayed in touch with family that way mainly. The only real downside to the cottage was the garden, it was enclosed and private but the grass was quite long and the patio area did not get the sun in the afternoon. The bedrooms only had doors instead of Windows that opened to the courtyard which you couldn't really sleep with open, if there had been a locking limiter or similar this would have helped a lot as it did get rather warm during the night. Having said that these are minor issues and didn't spoil our overall enjoyment. The cottage is ideally located for beach walks, we walked to Porthcurncik beach where the hidden hut was and ate lunch there a couple of days and a bit further on is Portscatho where there is a lovely pub called the Plume of Feathers, the food and beers there are very good. There are other walks in the area at St Just and St Anthony and St Mawes is a short drive away where there are plenty of shops and eateries. If you like this area then Pendower Barn is worth checking out
Guest from London stayed for 7 nights.
Very happy holiday, useful book recommending pubs and things to do. However, the bathroom needs a heated towel rail to dry towels on those summer days when the sun doesn't shine! Also a shaver/toothbrush charging socket would be very helpful. Otherwise all good!
Guest from Worcester stayed for 7 nights.
Lovely stay at pendower barn, ideally situated to travel around & some lovely little places & beaches to visit in the area. The barn is well equipped, warm & cozy, with a lovely garden; the only thing that would've made our stay any better was if the wire fencing went to the top of wooden rails, but we did come prepared with a long line for the dog, but that would be my only niggle & we would deffinately go back.
Guest from Derby stayed for 7 nights.
Was really looking forward to staying, had cancelled last September due to a broken ankle..really enjoyed the week, visited lots of places, spent time with my daughter who lives in Newquay. Wonderful views on the coastal walk to Pendower Beach and back. My dogs were shattered every day.. still are. Barn was well equipped every thing had been thought of by the owners. Definitely looking at booking for next year, as tehre was so much we didn't get chance to do. Amazing fish and fresh produce down the road at Curgarral Farm, and a bakery a little further up the road, lovely bread, and tray bakes to take away.
Guest from Lifton stayed for 7 nights.
Pendower was perfect for us and our two dogs. It's a great location as you can get anywhere on the Roaelamd very quickly. Loved the Hidden Hut for lunch and our favourite beach was Towan.
Guest from Oswestry stayed for 7 nights.

Guest from Bruton stayed for 3 nights.
Fantastic little barn - loved it there. comfortable with everything you need. Very cosy with the fire and good outside space for BBQ. Enjoyed the walk down to the fabulous Hidden Hut
Guest from Hinckley stayed for 7 nights.
This property was well located for many coastal path walks with our dog. It was in and out of the way peaceful location but still within easy access of the beaches in the local area. It is a little out of the way for local supermarkets the closest being in Truro however there is a small Coop in St Mawes. The barn itself is well equipped and very comfortable. The wood burning stove was a little tricky to get the hang of but eventually provided a wonderful warm room on a cold evening.
Guest from Risca stayed for 7 nights.
Pendower Barn was an excellent accommodation for us, Tony, Martin and our 2 retrievers Mabyn & Tirion. We loved the lay out of the rooms, a most comfortable snug with a really lovely wood burner. Having a good TV and the wi-fi was excellent. Bathroom fine, bedroom and bed very comfortable. The enclosed grass area was great for the dogs, we felt happy to leave them unattended. Parking and accessibility all really fine. Position just being off the main road splendid. Best of all was the short walk to the beach which we made every day, usually early evening after a day out and before we settled in for the evening. The Roseland area we found the best and much to our personal liking in all of the Cornwall we were able to visit in the week. An area we would definitely recommend to friends who would wish to visit Cornwall. It was unfortunate that for the first part of the week the Harry Ferry was closed. taking it later on when it had reopened made such a difference to getting about without having to go via Truro!! Of all things we were most happy about for our week's holiday was the fact that we had chosen Pendower Barn. Again, we would definitely recommend it as a base to anyone who wanted to enjoy a stay in Cornwall. With thanks for our experience with you.
Guest from Gravesend stayed for 7 nights.
Great stay in Pendower Barn. Extremely well equipped and comfortable. Ideal location. Very relaxing. And despite unexpected mild weather the wood burner was much appreciated.
Guest from Trowbridge stayed for 7 nights.
Pendower Barn is a comfortable, clean holiday retreat. We enjoyed the closeness to the beach and coastal path. Wood burner fabulous on a winter's night.
Guest from Epping stayed for 4 nights.
Pendowner Barn contains all that is needed for a comfortable and relaxing stay. It is clean and well-equipped to cater for all your needs. The proximity to the beach was accurately depicted however, probably due to my misunderstanding, I did not find it close to Portscatho. It is about a ten minute drive to the village and due to the lack of parking available in the village only managed to get in there once during the four days we were there. Apart from that the location of the cottage is well situated for access to all parts of southern Cornwall. We travelled to Padstow and down to Newquay, Mevagissey and down to Land's End and St. Ivest with ease.
Guest from Banbury stayed for 5 nights.
Have not been on holiday for a while so this occasion was extra special. This was our first holiday together since we met and we take away many happy memories thanks to a fantastic location and a wonderful holiday home which could not be faulted. We both are looking forward to the next visit.
Guest from Sheffield stayed for 7 nights.

Guest from Cardiff stayed for 7 nights.
Pendower Barn was a great base for us and our two young children for our week's holiday. It was perfect for the kids to play (and rest when they ran out of steam!), and was really comfortable and well-equipped for us too.
Guest from Leicester stayed for 7 nights.
Our stay at the barn was fantastic, clean ,spacious , welcomed with a few words from the owner and a bottle of wine . A folder of things to do where to go was so helpful. Location for us was great out the way quiet but just what we wanted. We took our dog who loved it too so dog friendly would definitely go back to the barn again thankyou for a great stay

Guest from Nottingham stayed for 7 nights.
Lovely barn with a good location close to the beaches and coastal path. Great to find a place that welcomes dogs too! Would definitely stay here again.
Guest from New Malden stayed for 4 nights.
Cleanliness, I could tell that it was a property that takes dogs. VFM the website mentioned a discount for a couple using one room but when I asked about this it wasn't available. The hot water was not turned on and the property instructions discouraged interfering with the controller.
Thanks for your review. Whilst you have marked the property down for value for money, we would like to point out that the low occupancy discount is unavailable for stays of less that 1 week. Having said that, we do think that the price you paid of £230 for 4 nights stay on the beautiful Roseland does still represent excellent value for money!
Guest from Northam,nr Bideford stayed for 3 nights.
What's not too like,...clean,well equipped and all round ideal for our(and the dogs) needs. Plenty of room for two adults,but there would still be plenty if there was more,lovely mezzanine,secure garden area,plenty of parking,
Guest from Torrington stayed for 7 nights.
We had a lovely week at Pendower barn,It was warm and cosy with comfy sofas and beds.It is also in the perfect position to visit the many beaches in and around the area,Also fantastic fresh fish crab and lobsters caught on their own boat from the farm shop just around the corner.The hidden hut is walking distance away also.We stay at a self catering cottage once a year and they can be a bit hit and miss quality wise but Pendower barn is right up there as far high standards go.We will defintley be returning.
Guest from St Helens stayed for 5 nights.
A lovely clean well equipped cottage , we and our two dogs enjoyed our stay very much . Nice rural location for nice walks and only 10 mins walk to the coastal path/ beach. Would definitely return and recommend to our friends and family.
Guest from Cupar stayed for 7 nights.
The barn is really well equipped and very comfortable. It has a great location being just a short walk (in choice of two directions) to the coastal path. We were really happy to be able to leave the car and walk direct from the door to Portscatho, Portloe,Veryan, and Mellinsey Mill. We had lobster from Curgurrell which is really close and eats at the Hidden Hut which is also nearby. Rosevine is even nearer..and the Driftwood is nearer still though we did not get a chance to sample their fare (because there are so many familiar haunts to visit). (Don't remember Hidden Hut or Driftwood from last visit to Roseland 4 years ago.) This was our ninth trip to Roseland and it just keeps getting better! The Barn is an ideal location. PS I am not sure why I have to give a rating for "service during stay" since it is a self catering barn - I ticked OK to keep the computer happy. It doesn't mean anything to me...
