This is a beautiful stone cottage that looks like it has been part of the scenery for years but was, in fact, a derelict barn that had fallen into complete disarray until it was lovingly rebuilt by the owner.

Both bedrooms are spacious with a master bedroom and family room and a truly luxurious bathroom with separate shower and bath.
Trennal Barn is situated just outside the quiet hamlet of Godolphins Cross and is a couple of miles inland from some of the south coasts best beaches, Praa Sands is south facing, sandy and has lifeguard cover during the season, it can have quite large waves and is frequented by surfers when the conditions are right.

Praa Sands in the South West of Cornwall is located between Helston and Penzance. The town contains many facilities including a shop, pub, post office and Praa Sands Gold Club. The nearest large supermarket is Morrisons towards Penzance. The extensive beach stretching from Rinsey Head to Hoe Point is extremely popular with the whole family, Prussia Cove, Perranuthnoe & Marazion are the nearest beaches, all within a few minutes drive. When the North Coast is 'blown out' you will find the surfers flock to Praa Sands for its powerful waves coming straight in from the Atlantic Ocean. Just inland from the beach is Pengersick Castle which dates back to the Bronze Age. Nearby Helston is famous for its Floral Dance in May, a day when the whole town stops and dresses up for the days many dances through the streets. From Penzance you can take the Scillonian for a day trip to the picturesque Isles of Scilly, well worth a visit if you have never been. 10 minutes down the road lies Marazion famous for St Michaels Mount, home to a medieval castle and a working local community. St Michaels Mount is accessible by causeway at low tides, or by boat. The castle is leased from the National Trust by the St Aubyn family who reside at the property maintaining and working the grounds.
Trennal Barn is only 1 mile from the beautiful beach and surf at Praa Sands and about the same distance from Rinsey's rocky cove (NT). Prussia Cove film set for 'Ladies in Lavender' and Godolphin House (NT) of 'Poldark' fame, are nearby. Four miles away is the market town of Helston, full of Cornish history and tradition, with its Furry dance in early May. For children of all ages there is Flambards Theme Park next to Culdrose Air Base famous for many air sea rescue missions. There are sights to be seen around Goonhilly Earth station where the large dish Arthur is now a listed building. Try your hand at riding a 2 wheeled Segway. These together with the Seal Sanctuary at Gweek and the nearby coastal village of Porthleven provide any holidaymaker with a wealth of interesting visits. Only 7.5 miles away is the lively town of Penzance where the Scillonian offers trips to the Isles of Scilly. St Ives is only 14 miles away on the north coast with its beautiful bays and artistic areas.
Trennal Barn is central for the areas and villages of the Lizard, Helford, Land's End and Mousehole. Facilities for golf, sailing, course and sea fishing are all available within two miles. You can take country and coastal walks or visit local country pubs for well-priced meals or shop in the local super stores at Helston and Penzance. There are a wealth of gardens to explore. The mines at Lelant, Geevor, Bottalack and Poldark are a short drive away. The Minack Theatre and Porthcurno beach are well worth a visit. There are world famous art galleries at St Ives and Newlyn.
Guest from Hailsham stayed for 7 nights.
Trennal Barn is truly the most wonderful place to stay. The decor is modern and well chosen. It is very well equipped with everything you could need and very comfortable. A quiet location but close to the main road but roads are quite narrow. A small welcome pack of tea and a cake to settle in with. Emma was helpful and cheerful. Having mobility issues I would suggest a handrail on the steps to the garden as they are steep.
Guest from Stoke-on-trent stayed for 7 nights.
Deep in the Cornish countryside, this barn has been tastefully furnished and thoughtfully equipped. We arrived to find a tea tray and biscuits - all we had to do was boil the kettle! It is well located for beaches, Penzance and Helston, and Lands End and the Lizard Peninsula are within striking distance, with many lovely villages in between, not to mention the south west coast path. We loved our stay
Guest from Farnham stayed for 21 nights.
Nice little barn conversion in a very rural location - typical narrow Cornish lanes teeming with wild flowers in May - so pretty. Situated at the foot of Godolphin Hill and several other local footpaths makes it convenient for dog walking (you can see both north & south coasts from the top of Godolphin Hill on a clear day). Pros: 1. Neat & clean - no obvious evidence of the previous occupants. 2. Lots of windows - very light & airy 3. Large comfortable bed. 4. Good sized, neat garden with large rotary clothes line. Mostly enclosed & safe for smaller dogs, but larger dogs could easily escape. 5. Surrounded by fields on 3 sides, so quite private. Cons: 1. Rubbish WiFi - even after BT Openreach came & fixed a fault, we still only got 0.5 Mb/s download (it was 0.3 Mb/s previously). 2. Upstairs in the main bedroom and bathroom, the positioning of the bed and bathroom fittings means you are in constant danger of hitting your head on the sloping ceilings. We are quite short people but still had this problem, so taller people would have a lot more trouble. I'm only 5' 3" and my head still banged on the ceiling when sitting up in bed! 3. There are no instruction manuals for any of the provided equipment (this is the first time we have encountered this problem in the many times we have stayed in Cornwall Cottages properties). This problem is exacerbated by the fact that some of the equipment has buttons where the inscriptions have been worn away (microwave buttons, TV remote etc). 4. Although there is an outside tap, there was no hose provided for washing down muddy dogs. 5. We found it difficult to find suitable places to store wet coats, boots etc - there is no obvious place provided even though there is plenty of space in the kitchen to do so. Overall we had an enjoyable 3-week break but there were certain avoidable annoyances about the property which could easily be rectified.

Guest from Hemel Hempstead stayed for 7 nights.
We (2 adults, 2 teenagers) had a lovely week at Trennal Barn in April 2017. The barn conversion has been beautifully done, the property looks great - tastefully modern, neutral palette - and is very comfortable to come home to. The first time you follow your sat nav down the winding single track lanes you do wonder where you are going to end up, but it's well worth it! Secluded and quiet with a field of horses as your neighbours the property is actually easy to get to and the lanes become very familiar after a day or so. It's a great location for exploring the most southerly and westerly points of Cornwall, from St. Ives in one direction and Falmouth in the other, Lands End about 1/2 hour away, St. Michael's Mount/Marazion practically on your doorstep and Penzance another 5 minutes or so and offering easy access to supermarkets. The most local beach, Praa Sands is a lovely mile long sweep of sand with the well placed Sandbar ready to reward your exercise with a meal or drink or both, plus a live jazz band at Sunday Lunchtime.
Guest from Manchester stayed for 7 nights.
The barn is lovely, very well equipped with everything you need. The location is ideal to get away from it all and be close enough to lots of stunning beaches. Highly recommend! We all had a wonderful holiday especially Daisy our cockapoo.
Guest from Bristol stayed for 7 nights.
Super location, quiet and peaceful but only a few miles from the coast and towns. Well equipped and comfortable. Owners were very helpful. Absolutely everything we were hoping for.
Guest from Atlanta stayed for 3 nights.
Chosen for its location and the modern style; we were not disappointed. The cottage was ideal for the two of us and would easily have met the needs of four. Quiet, cosy and well furnished, we were particularly impressed with the welcome cake left for us as well as the basic tea making ingredients. Two big superstores at nearby Helston make it easy to stock up the fridge/freezer for your stay. With no nearby shops, I suggest you pick up a few things on your way in. Thanks Emma!
Guest from Swadlincote stayed for 7 nights.

Guest from Portsmouth stayed for 7 nights.
The Barn was lovely , really clean an excellant location for touring and very peaceful. Loved the garden. Everything is in the cottage that you would need for a relaxing week. Only thing we were not keen on was the position of the bed under the sloping roof.

Guest from Woodford Green stayed for 7 nights.
Trennal Barn is a cosy property, very tastefully furnished, with lots of character. I would definately stay here again. It's very peaceful. You can also easily reach many beaches and places of interest in the area. It always felt very welcoming coming back here after a day out.
Guest from Burton-on-trent stayed for 7 nights.
We were a family of four and a dog that stayed for a week and I'm delighted to say that there was nothing that we could fault with our stay at Trennal Barn. It was welcoming, very comfortable, the furniture and accessories were of good quality with some real homely touches, the bedding and towels were of a similar quality, the bathroom was perfect and everything and more was available in the kitchen, any other bits and pieces you needed were in the shed. The outside space / garden was ideal, secure and well maintained. There was nothing anywhere that switched us off! The visitors book was full of positive comments and a pack of useful information about local attractions / instructions for the barn from the owners was available. The owners also left their contact details in the event of a problem. We had a fantastic week in Cornwall and Trennal Barn played a part in that, we would definatly stay there again.
Guest from Tadley stayed for 7 nights.
From beginning to end of Holiday everything was very professionally done. The booking with Cornwalls Cottages was so simple. Emma whom actually owns the property is such a caring and considerate person, she has thought of everything that you could possibly need. Thank you Emma. Regards Cath
