Mowie Barn is a great hideaway retreat, situated adjacent to the owners’ home, in the small and peaceful rural hamlet of Stennack, just outside the village of Troon, a Cornish Mining World Heritage Site. Mowie Barn is a semi-detached, level barn conversion, surrounded by a picturesque rural landscape of open fields and woodland, with numerous local walks, making it a magnet for dog walkers and ramblers alike. It is located just a 10-minute drive from the A30, which offers excellent access to both the north and south coasts. There’s a wealth of tourist attractions situated throughout Cornwall including many National Trust properties, monuments and gardens, pretty fishing villages and harbours, beautiful beaches, endless walks with unbridled scenery, fine dining and traditional public houses.
A stone’s throw away is the former mining town of Camborne, now a bustling and vibrant town with an array of pubs, shops and restaurants. The local village of Troon is steeped in Cornish mining history with abandoned ivy covered engine houses that at one time serviced the areas thriving tin and copper industry. The beautiful parish church of Treslothan is a short walk down the road, as is the 5000-year-old Giant’s Quiot that now attracts a gathering that celebrate the Summer solstice. Troon itself has a supermarket and a pharmacy, whilst Camborne town centre and the Heartlands Cultural Experience are both a mere 5-minute drive away. The ruins of Carn Brea Castle and Bassett Monument are a short walk away either with or without the dog, and once at the top, the view over Cornwall stretches for miles. Archaeological digs have revealed this area to date back to Neolithic times and later Iron Age occupation.
The harbour at Portreath was built to service the flourishing ore industry centred around the Camborne and Redruth area, and by 1827 was said to be the most important port in Cornwall. The Portreath Tramway that linked the harbour to the copper mines at Scorrier and St Day was the first railway to be built in Cornwall. Today, they form the Mineral Tramways Coast to Coast cycle way and footpath that lead walkers and cyclists in to the very heart of Cornwalls industrial mining past. One of the routes, known as the Great Flat Lode Trail, is a circular trail that takes in Carn Brea. A further connection with the Basset Monument is Tehidy Country Park, once owned by the Basset family, the estate was purchased by Cornwall County Council and today the grounds are open to the public for great walks, and a variety of events are held throughout the year.
A 15-minute drive takes you to the glorious, golden sandy beach at Hayle which stretches for miles, whilst St Ives is world famous for its quaint and charm, and is a haven for artists and visitors alike. The coastal path along this stretch of Cornwall are nothing short of exhilarating, with ocean views that have been described as simply stunning, whilst the resident colony of about 30 seals at Godrevy are a year-round attraction not to be missed. Helston, 10 miles, was originally a thriving port, however, the river silted up over the years. Where the river joins the sea is now Cornwalls largest lake. Horse riding nearby. Beach 2 miles. Shop ¼ mile, pub 1¼ miles and restaurant 1 mile. Please note: Mowie Barn can be booked together with Mowie Cottage (ref W42873) to accommodate up to 4 guests.

    We had a fantastic stay at Mowie Barn which is ideally situated to explore Cornwall. It is very close to the A30 so going north, south or east is not a problem. The barn is very comfortable and well equipped and we were made to feel very welcome by the owners, who were on hand if we needed anything and left us a lovely cream tea on arrival. The only down side was the intermittent wi-fi but we turned that into a positive and completely switched off for a week. I would highly recommend Mowie for a future holiday.

    The barn was very well equipped and clean. We received an enthusiastic welcome from the owner and an extremely detailed show round of the barn. We thought her instructions were a bit too much after an 8 hour drive and we were given an extensive list of do’s and don’ts which did have some negative impact on our ability to relax and feel at home. On another note we specifically booked this cottage as it stated pub within 1 mile , there is no pub within 1 mile. The owner was however, extremely friendly and knowledgeable about travelling around the area and other pubs. Regarding our 2 dogs it states pets allowed however, we were not allowed to leave them in while we went out , the owner did however offer to dog sit.

    This is a great little cottage for a couple, in a peaceful area of Cornwall. One of the best equipped cottages we've stayed in and a good central location for getting about. The bed was really comfy so we slept well. The only thing stopping me giving this property 10 out of 10 was the appalling Wi-Fi. If you stood in the bedroom as close to the neighbouring property as possible then it was just about usable. You'll be able to access your email, but little else.
