Downs Barn Farm is perfectly situated for a holiday in West Cornwall. We enjoy lovely views and are in a quiet, rural location. The South West Coastal Footpath is just a 20 minute walk across the fields. There is plenty to do in this area, we are close to the Minack Theatre, St Michaels Mount, Lands End & St Ives. Surrounded by the golden sandy beaches of Porthcurno, Porthchapel & Sennen and near many little coves and fishing villages like Mousehole, Lamorna and Porthgwarra.
We are close to St Buryan village (five minute drive or 30 minute walk on the footpath) where you will find a good selection of facilities. These include a well–stocked general store and post office with fresh produce and newspapers. A village pub serving good food and local ales, church, garage and petrol station/shop. A farmers market is held in the village on two Saturdays a month.
There is a good bus service in the summer months – although slightly more limited out of season. The nearest bus stop is a ten minute walk. We also have local taxis available.
There are two very good farm shops near Hayle, Trevaskis and Richards. Smaller local farm produce stalls are dotted around the area and locally produced beef is available in St Buryan. There are a good selection of supermarkets in Newlyn (5 miles) and Penzance (6 miles) some of which deliver.
Our nearest cove of St Loy is a beautiful boulder beach, quiet and peaceful, the perfect place to sit and relax. There is a lovely circular walk from the farm which takes you through the bluebell woods to the cove and takes about an hour.
