Charming barn conversion close to Marazion
Situated a mere 200 metres from Marazion Beach, Gwern Barn is set back in a quiet, rural location. Boasting thick curved stone walls, this property is thought to date back over 400 years. Now a charming barn conversion, Gwern Barn sleeps four across two bedrooms and has been sympathetically renovated to create a cosy yet light holiday home, which has retained its original layout and character.

The country-style kitchen is well equipped with everything you could need, and for the ultimate traditional touch it features a charming Belfast sink alongside an electric oven, separate gas hob, integrated dishwasher, freestanding fridge freezer and a Nespresso coffee machine. There’s also an extending wooden dining table which comfortable seats four.
Through to the light-filled living area there’s a plush sofa, and two stylish armchairs ¬making it the perfect space for guests to relax after a day at the beach. For the ultimate downtime there’s a large 52” wall-mounted Smart TV and Bluetooth soundbar to be enjoyed, too. The first bedroom is situated on the ground floor; a spacious room with king-sized bed, it’s complete with freestanding wardrobe and a cosy armchair. The modern bathroom featuring a large standalone shower, WC and heated towel rail is also on this floor.
The second bedroom which large skylight allows the Cornish sunshine to flood through, is situated in a mezzanine area above the lounge. Boasting a zip ‘n’ link which can be used as a twin set up or as a super king.

High-quality bed linen and towels are provided at all of Cornish Secrets properties.
Marazion is situated on the south coast of Cornwall and is the gateway to the tidal island of St Michael’s Mount. Follow the path of the ancient pilgrims by walking the stone and cobbled path across Mount’s Bay to reach the island, or at high tide that is a ferry that will take you out and bring you back.
There are lots of water based activities for the energetic including windsurfing, kitesurfing, jet skiing and sailing. On Chapel Rock and Marazion harbour, there are numerous rock pools to explore and above the beach there is a large park for the little ones to enjoy.
The South West coast path offers up outstanding views in this part of Cornwall. Sherpa expeditions provide guided and self guided walks (and cycling routes) and the beautiful St Michael’s Way is an ancient path that starts at St Ives, slightly further north and finishes on St Michael’s Mount.
