Skillywadden Barn, Towednack near St Ives

Welcome to Skillywadden Barn
A detached granite barn conversion in the owner’s garden, this small property is ideal for up to 4 people.

Situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, within three miles of St Ives and ideally placed for exploring the South West coastal paths that cover this peninsula and eventually lead you to Lands End. We are on the edge of moorland, but still close to Cornwall’s North and South coasts.

Local places of interest include The Tate St.Ives, with a variety of restaurants, quaint streets and local craft shops in the town, and beautiful beaches – ideal for both surfers and sunbathers. Nearby are the Minack Theatre at Porthcurno, St Michaels Mount opposite Marazion beach at Penzance and popular National Trust Gardens at Trengwainton and Trelissick. For those who like to go further afield, it’s a simple matter to take the ship from nearby Penzance or flight from Newquay to the Isles of Scilly for a day trip.

The kitchen/dining room has double doors out onto a small balcony in addition to a window overlooking the moors and velux roof windows.
