The property

The sweeping view of blue horizon at St Austell Bay from this beautiful converted barn is a constant reminder that Cornwall's Riviera coastline and golden beaches are not far away.

Nestled slightly inland amidst scenic countryside on a working farm in the hamlet of Trethurgy, Black Rock combines excellent accommodation standards with a peaceful setting for a relaxing break yet is a short drive to the long sandy beaches at Pentewen, Porthpean and Par (dog-friendly) and some of the county's major tourist attractions.

Well placed for a varied holiday experience, the renowned Eden Project is within walking distance; Charlestown, famous for its collection of tall ships, is a 15 minute drive whilst the exclusive waterfront town of Fowey; the cathedral city of Truro and the charming fishing village of Mevagissey are a 30 minute drive.

Guests can end fun days on the coast with a soak in the hot tub; a sun-downer on the sheltered decked patio or beside the warming glow of the stylish wood burner in the cooler months.

The interior has rustic appeal with an ultra-glossy kitchen and two luxurious en-suite bathrooms adding a touch of glamour.

A pet sitting service is available by prior arrangement with the owners who live in the neighbouring farmhouse and dog towels and bowls are provided.

Pet owners, walkers and cyclists will discover scenic walks and cycle routes of the Clay Trails from the front door step and children will love to meet the resident chickens, ducks, geese and pigs.

It is ideal for larger groups when booked with the attached residence, Leghorn , which can accommodate four guests.

Within walking distance is the Knightor Winery & Restaurant and St Austell offers excellent wet weather alternatives including a cinema, ten pin bowling and indoor children's adventure centre.

There is ample parking and secure storage for bikes/surfboards.

About the location

ST. AUSTELL

Charlestown 2 miles; Carlyon Bay 3 miles; Mevagissey 6 miles; Fowey 8 miles.

The old market town of St. Austell lies just a few miles from the south coast, and is famous for its China Clay mining history. Today, home to numerous beaches and sub tropical gardens, it is a popular place for tourists, and families, with plenty to see and do. Get back to nature with the wonderful Lost Gardens of Heligan and the ever-popular Eden Project, perfect for a family day out, or discover the delights of Caerhays Castle and Garden, flourishing in the maritime climate. Home to the St. Austell Brewery, this is the perfect place to relax and unwind, while sampling the delights of the local beer, after a tour of the Victorian brewery, and for those who love the surf and sand, St. Austell has plenty of both to choose from. Visit the beautiful sandy beach at Porthpean, or spend time at Carlyon Bay with its ever-popular shingle beach, a favourite for sun worshippers, but if you prefer a dip in the water, Polkerris is the place for you. Situated in a safe cove, it is renowned for variety of watersports. Whether it’s sailing, windsurfing or swimming you're looking for, Polkerris Beach has it all. Charlestown is a pretty, historical port just two miles away, famous for its collection of tall ships riding at anchor in the harbour, and is well worthy of a visit whilst staying in St. Austell. A short drive will take you to fashionable Fowey or the fishing port of Mevagissey, and with lots to do, and something to keep the whole family entertained, St. Austell is a great year round location.
