Overview

Photos and Description of this Sennen holiday barn

The best 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom cottages, above the wonderful Gwenver beach.

Myn Tea was rebuilt in 2006 to provide an amazing self catering holiday home for a couple on a romantic break, or a fab family holiday for up to four lucky people.

For the most up to date calendar and photos please visit our website thecornishway.co.uk

The living space is upstairs. It's a fabulous 38 foot long room that leads out to the balcony that makes the most of those wonderful views of the coast and out to the Scilly Isles straight ahead, and down towards the Brisons on the side.

Tregiffian Barn was rebuilt in 2015 and offers even more space, good gardens and stunning views out to sea, and across the surrounding countryside.

Both have comfortable bedrooms with great beds. Tregiffian Barn includes an ensuite shower room off the master bedroom.

We know that cooking on holiday is one of the joys that is often foregone when we're working, so the kitchens are well equipped with everything you need to cook up a storm.

Beach holiday? Surfing holiday? Twitchers? Walkers? Cyclists? Or just looking for a place to read, kick back and relax. Myn Tea or Tregiffian Barn will be hard to beat.

The nearby Sennen Surfing Centre is renowned for its excellent tuition for budding wave riders of all ages.

If you're looking for the beach then the lovely Gwenver is just down the lane, when the tide is out the beach adjoins Sennen, both being great places for surf, and both with life guards in the holiday season.

Nanjizel is a longer walk, and Porthcurno, rated as one of the world's best beaches by the Sunday Times and Conde Nast, is just a short drive.

The rugged cliffs offer challenging walking on both the north and south coasts, with Lands End being within reach for most people, and a welcome drink can be had there.

Mousehole, Penzance and St Ives all have great galleries, restaurants, and their own charm. Penzance also has the famous Jubilee Pool lido, and the Cornish Pirates rugby club.

Cape Cornwall's golf course is right on the edge and only 5 miles away.

The UNESCO World Heritage Mining Sites of Levant and Geevor are a short drive anyway. At Geevor you can even go underground as part of the tour there.

Chysauster and Carn Euny are both ancient settlements with clear remains and only a little imagination required to recreate bronze age village life there in your mind.

Both cottages are hugely popular and many guests book their next stay as soon as they arrive - get in early to secure your holiday using our website www.thecornishway.co.uk

About Kelvin Collins

Kelvin was born up the road and when he first brought Amanda home to the far west she fell in love with the area.

In 2015 they moved to St Just, taking on an old wreck and working to create a comfortable home as well as head quarters for The Cornish Way.

Their aim is to provide holidays that fill you with joy - and the small selection of cottages they offer are sure to deliver.

Kelvin Collins purchased this barn in 1999

Why Kelvin Collins chose South West Cornwall

When we came to view Myn Tea it was a perfect evening, the sun setting across the sea and the Scillies clearly visible in the distance. We fell in love and broke the bank, but we have never regretted it.

Despite living in many great cities we have always hankered to come back to the far west, and in 2015 finally made the move to concentrate on offering great holiday locations for our lovely lucky guests.

What makes this barn unique

Myn Tea and Tregiffian Barn have all the benefits of fantastic sea views and proximity to the beach, without having to put up with crowds of people. It's a pleasant walk, or short drive down to Sennen, but many people like to just chill out here and kick back for a week of joy, whatever the season or weather.

Often guests book longer stays to truly engage with their surroundings, or indeed work on projects. We have had writers, film makers, and IT developers all take longer winter stays, often working on their projects, while also learning or enjoying to surf.

Perfect costal hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely time staying here. All the home comforts you could need, really nice and clean decor, made for a really relaxing stay. Perfectly placed, meant we could step out of the front door onto a beautiful coastal path to the beach and picturesque town of Sennen. Top notch fish and chip shop too. What more could you want. Will definitely be going back.

A Lovely Get away

  • 5 of 5

Spent a long weekend with girlfriends (all 50 something) at Tregiffian Barn. My second visit and my favourite place to stay in Cornwall. Short walking distance to a lovely beach, down some fairly steep steps, good for surfing & general beaching. Also within walking distance, either across the beach or via quiet country lanes, of Sennen Cove which has a friendly pub, an upscale restaurant & a couple of other cafés, had a great crab sandwich overlooking the beach at Little Bo Café. Also, some interesting local art galleries to mooch around. A great area for walking, the coastal path can be accessed straight from the barn. The barn's layout is reversed with the open plan living area upstairs with great views from the big picture window. Three comfortable bedrooms, 2 bathrooms downstairs and a lovely garden area where you could BBQ or sunbathe. A lot of thought has gone into the layout and furnishing of the barn, it's comfortable, bright and airy with a gorgeous, relaxed feel. Great for a weekend get away with friends or perfect for a family holiday in beautiful Cornwall.

Open, airey, light, great views and brand new

  • 5 of 5

This is a great barn conversion. Its simple, well furnished, has brilliant showers and bathrooms and a fresh and clean feel. Great location for beach and cliff top walks and a short drive to places like St Ives, Penzance and Lands End. All we wanted to do was hang out there as its quiet and has plenty of outdoor space. Far better than anywhere else that we have rented and a fabulous view across to The Scilly Isles

Idyllic barn conversion

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Tregiffian Barn for a week this August. It was the 3rd time we've returned to a Cornish Way property and they're always immaculate. The location is excellent, at the end of a quiet country lane close to Sennen. The barn is newly converted with all mod cons, an open plan living area and lovely touches such as games and books. It has really useful outside space for hanging wetsuits and storing boards and the inside was comfy and a pleasure to hang out when it rained. The views are stunning. The people who manage it provide a five star service.

Car: recommended

Myn Tea is on the edge of Tregiffian, a small hamlet at the end of a mile long lane.

The uninterrupted view looks out across a couple of fields towards the Scilly Isles, and is perfect for enjoying some of the amazing sunsets we get over the sea.

The walk to the beach takes about ten minutes back down the lane, and Sennen with its pubs, cafes and restaurant is just a little further on.

The cliff path starts pretty much from the door step.

West Cornwall is a stunning region offering huge variety including beautiful beaches, rugged cliffs, secret coves and wild moor land. It's steeped in history, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and UNESCO World Heritage Site in recognition of the mining heritage.

It's attractive for the art colonies of St Ives, Newlyn, Penzance and Lamorna. Surfers flock to the havens of Gwenver and Sennen. Cyclists come for the challenge of the hills and the beauty of the roads. Twitchers come to spot our unusual feathered visitors. And the rest of us love the romance and ideal family holiday location.
