What makes it Fabulous?

  • Falling asleep to the sound of the Atlantic Ocean.
  • Exploring the coast path to discover deserted white sandy beaches.
  • Spectacular storm watching from beside the fire.
  • Dinner at the award winning Gurnards Head and walking home under the stars.
In a breathtaking position above a rocky headland and a hidden sandy cove, Chy Barnett has spectacular views of the Atlantic from pretty much every room. Breathe in the sea air, watch gulls soar above the coast and enjoy exploring the surrounding stunning National Trust owned landscape.

Inside Story

A comfortable family home, the charming interior is light filled and tranquil. Full of original character there is oak flooring, wood panelling and a cosy wood burning stove. The sitting and dining rooms span the front of the house making the most of the incredible outlook and the conservatory at the side is a great spot for hiding out with coffee and the papers. A country kitchen at the back of the house also has a small table, perfect for children’s suppers.

Upstairs are three pretty bedrooms, a master with 6’ super king size bed and two bright twin rooms. The bathroom is also on the first floor with a bath and a separate shower cubicle. A fourth single bedroom on the ground floor may suit teens in particular. There is also a ground floor shower room serving this bedroom and returning sandy beach goers.

Outdoor Living

The rambling garden envelops the house with plenty of space for a game or simply to relax in the sunshine. Lounge on the lawn, barbecue fresh fish from Newlyn or simply take in the view. Hydrangeas and wild flowers frame the views from the picnic table and there are a few deck chairs for afternoon snoozing.

There is ample parking for up to four cars at the back of the house.

Out and About

Hidden down a long track off the Land’s End to St Ives road, the adventure starts as you approach the house. Whether you take the coast road from St Ives or cross the Moors from Penzance, the incredible landscape has an air of mystery.

Although remote there is a fab foodie pub; The Gurnard’s Head at the top of the track. The Tinners Arms at Zennor, Tolcarne Inn in Newlyn and the Halsetown Inn are also great dining spots.
This is a walker’s heaven and we highly recommend venturing along the coast path towards St Ives. It is hard going in places but well worth the effort for the incredible landscapes along the way. If you make it to St Ives there are plenty of cafes and pubs for a reward.
If sandy beaches are calling then head to Sennen Cove, Porthcurno, Perranuthnoe or St Ives, all of which are within easy driving distance.
