Go on, treat yourself. Crugkern Barn is situated at the head of the quiet, picturesque Cot Valley and set between the moorlands of West Penwith and surrounding farmland yet within easy reach of the attractive and vibrant small town of St Just (5 minutes away) with its wide range of local services. Set in the grounds of the owners' home, and within the West Penwith Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Crugkern Barn is a small, tastefully converted barn in a modern style, providing high quality accommodation for 2 people with its own gardens, outdoor seating areas and parking.

Crugkern Barn is situated at the head of the quiet, picturesque Cot Valley and set between the moorlands of West Penwith and surrounding farmland yet within easy reach of the attractive and vibrant small town of St Just (5 minutes away) with its wide range of local services. Set in the grounds of the owners' home, and within the West Penwith Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Crugkern Barn is a small, tastefully converted barn in a modern style, providing high quality accommodation for 2 people with its own gardens, outdoor seating areas and parking. It is easy to get to by road, or, if you prefer public transport, by rail to Penzance then a short (regular service) bus journey to St Just. It is ideal for those wishing to spend time in the peace and quiet of a rural Cornish valley but with easy access to the other attractions of West Penwith. Sennen Cove, with its half a mile of golden sand is just 10 minutes drive away offering swimming and surfing in a majestic setting, or you may prefer the smaller, secluded coves such as Porth Nanven, where the River Cot meets the Atlantic, or Cape Cornwall. The Cot Valley and adjacent granite sea cliff coast are renowned for their wildlife, and offer stunning coastal walks within easy reach of the barn via a network of quiet lanes and footpaths. It is an ideal base for those wishing to walk sections of the West Penwith leg of the Cornwall Coast Path. Penzance is just 10 minutes drive away, with its wide range of shops and services, and Land's End is a similar distance. Places such as Marazion, St Michael's Mount, the fishing ports of Newlyn and Mousehole and the 'Poldark coast' (where much of the series was filmed) with its rich industrial mining heritage are all within a 15-20 minute drive so there is always something to do or new and interesting places to see. If you fancy a trip to the Scilly Isles then Land's End airport offers regular flights, or you may prefer to go by sea on the Scillonian from Penzance. The barn offers comfortable, high quality accommodation comprising an open-plan bedroom, living room and kitchen area and a separate bathroom with new electric shower, wash basin, WC and heated towel rail. High quality linen and towels are all provided together with complimentary luxury toiletries. The barn enjoys electric heating should you require it. The living area includes a double bed (with under bed storage), a sofa, a TV with integrated DVD player and free WiFi. There is a small table and chairs in the kitchen/dining area or you may prefer to eat outside in the garden. On arrival you will find a 'welcome pack' of tea, coffee, milk and eggs provided together with a loaf of home-made bread and local cheese just to get you started. The kitchen area, with its granite work surfaces and inset sink, is equipped with an electric oven, a four-ring induction hob, a fridge, and matching Dualit toaster and kettle. Outside is under cover storage for beach gear, body boards and anything else you may not want in the barn. There is a BBQ for those fine, summer's evenings in the garden and a washing line to dry your swimming stuff. If you fancy a trip out then we have also provided a 'day sack' which includes a small rucksack, a picnic rug, sandwich box, thermos flask and a local OS map. You are very welcome to use this if needed. The quality of the light in Cornwall has always attracted artists and photographers so if these are your interests then West Penwith could be the place for you. The owner is an artist specialising in silk painting and a member of the Silk Painters Guild. There is a studio adjacent to the barn so if visitors fancy having a go at this art form then silk painting sessions can be arranged. Contact the owner for details. Crugkern Barn is a no smoking area and to ensure minimal disturbance in this wildlife-rich area we are also unable to take pets. More

About the neighborhood
St Just is an ancient granite market town, centred on the town square, has a range of shops and services, some fine pubs and good eating places. Try the Dog and Rabbit café for breakfast, the Cookbook café for afternoon tea, and if you enjoy traditional music maybe walk along to the Star pub on a Monday night. Sennen Cove, just 10 minutes drive away, is an outstanding 'blue flag' beach, offering superb, safe bathing and some of the best surfing and body-boarding around. Sennen beach is over half-a-mile of stunning golden sands and turquoise sea. It is life-guarded throughout the season, from Easter until the end of September. There is ample parking, a range of cafes, galleries and pubs.
