LOCATION Penvith Barns is situated only a short walk from Seaton Beach, with the beautiful riverside pathways of Seaton Countryside Park and the South West Coast Path, all providing boundless leisure opportunities.
Parts of the neighbouring coastline are in the ownership of the National Trust. Seaton provides a popular family beach with RNLI lifeguard station during the summer, good for dog walking and surfing, together with the neighbouring village of Downderry providing a wide range of facilities including pubs, shop, beach café, restaurant, primary school (rated "good" by Ofsted) and a doctors surgery. Downderry appeared, in recent years, in the Sunday Times top ten "Best Places to Live by the sea" and also has a slipway with the ability to keep and launch dinghies by permit.
There is a regular bus service and the main line railway station can be accessed at St Germans (8 miles) which also has a yacht club and a Montessori Nursery. The A38 provides a quick link to the rest of Cornwall, Plymouth City Centre and beyond. The historic harbourside town of Looe lies about three miles to the west and provides further amenities. The notable sailing waters of the area are favoured by yachtsmen and deep water moorings are available at Saltash and Fowey. Saltash has a long tidal waterfront and a Waitrose store on its northern outskirts.
