Find by property name...

Starting its life as an old apple store, The Scrumpy Barn is now a beautiful family-friendly luxury self-catering cottage in St Mawes decked out in an open-plan style, retaining the original chunky beams and exposed Cornish stonework throughout. The private gardens offer a great place for children to work up an appetite, whilst older members of the group can recline with a long cold glass of this property's namesake! 

Family-friendly holiday cottage St Mawes


This cosy recently converted apple store close to St Mawes has a classic understated style and offers a comfortable home-from-home ambiance. The luxury double bedroom promises a blissful night's sleep, whilst the pretty twin bedroom opens out on to the garden and the rolling fields beyond. The open-plan kitchen and living room area affords families the chance to enjoy some quality downtime together.   

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

There are two well-appointed bedrooms; one lofty beamed double bedroom, and one pretty twin room with direct access to the garden. The separate bathroom has a bath with overhead shower.


The Scrumpy Barn is approached via a shared driveway which also serves the owner's home (adjacent to the cottage). The verdant gardens, complete with natural pond, provide the ideal place to unwind and recall memories of the day's adventures as the sun sets over the rolling hills. 

For Relaxation

Don't forget your walking boots! There are exploration opportunities aplenty for ramblers of all ages to experience the nearby picturesque coast paths. Sit back in the private gardens and breathe in the fresh country air before sizzling the freshest catch of the day on the BBQ. Snuggle up by the woodburner and enjoy a hearty glass of red as the flames crackle away.


There is private parking for up to two cars. The property has a separate utility area with washing machine and tumble dryer. Please note there is no freezer at The Scrumpy Barn.  



Style: The Scrumpy Barn has been transformed into an open plan living space decked out in a traditional style, retaining the original chunky beams and exposed Cornish stonework.

Our Take

Property Consultant Clare says

I loved the cosy cottage interiors, warm welcoming feel and pretty gardens at Scrumpy. The good proximity to the harbour town of St Mawes meant that I was able to pop in to town to pick up fresh bread and pastries in the morning before returning to enjoy breakfast in the sunshiny garden, lovely!
