Avallen Barn

A beautiful barn conversion in quiet countryside by Frenchman's Creek & near Helford village

A large award-winning contemporary barn conversion set in an ancient Cornish farmstead.

The retreat sleeps eight in comfort and has a spacious living area with well equipped kitchen, a generous dining table and lots of comfy seating — plus exclusive use of a large garden.

You’ll be close to Frenchman’s Creek and numerous beaches.

If you are looking for larger-sized holiday cottage on the Helford with a wow-factor, in an unspoilt location near the coast, and with plenty to do on the doorstep, then Avallen Barn is for you.

This is a very special barn in a very special place, with its own large garden opening out to an orchard and wildflower meadows, and a footpath leading in one direction to Helford village, and in the other… to Frenchman’s Creek!

Avallen is the largest of a small group of adjoining barns at Kestle Barton, an ancient Cornish farmstead situated above the spectacular Helford River. All of the buildings have been lovingly restored or imaginatively converted to the highest sustainability standards — one is a small, high-quality art gallery.

As soon as you arrive, two things will strike you about Avallen Barn. The first is the extraordinary amount of care that has been taken in the conservation. All of the original doors and windows have been cleverly incorporated into the new layout and all of the old hand-cut roofing tiles have been re-used and beautifully re-laid. Secondly, whilst Avallen is historic, it is also stunningly modern, with glass and steel architectural features and abundant technology to cook and entertain with. That ancient and modern can live together so happily is testament to the vision and commitment of the owner, and the skill of the award-winning conservation architect who created this holiday haven.
