With just over 3900sqft of living space, Mill Barn provides flexible accommodation comprising 7 beds, 6.5 baths and 3 reception rooms. The home can accommodate a wide range of configurations with scope to include income generating opportunities.

Whatever the season, come rain or shine, waking up at Mill Barn is something to savour. As you sleepily draw back the curtains, the breathtaking views and sound of gently flowing water is a daily pleasure.

The current owners purchased the property around 35 years ago and have worked tirelessly to transform what was previously a dilapidated Mill into their dream home. It’s all been done with incredible attention to detail, preserving the heritage timber beams and character of the ancient building while creating a truly impressive multi-generational family home.

This superb residence revels in its countryside location with an endless choice of walking, cycling and riding routes, but it’s just a short drive to the lovely sandy beaches of Perranporth with its great surfing and leisure options, plus the A3075 is just a mile away providing excellent access to both Newquay and Truro.

We’re sure you want to know more about Mill Barn, so here are the finer details...

Where to go when you need: -


Head to Bridge Stores in Goonhavern for milk and much more. But if milk of the frozen variety is needed, the famous Callestick Ice Cream Parlour in just a mile away where you’ll find a superb selection of ices and Deli pops.


There are some wonderful courses to discover in this part of the world. Perranporth Golf Club is close by and is renowned for its relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Its superb location offers players a testing and interesting round with stunning views across surrounding countryside and coastline. Or book a tee time at Carylon Bay Golf Club near St Austell (20 miles) and relax with a drink or bite to eat in the bar and restaurant afterwards.


Mill Barn is in the catchment for the OFSTED ‘Good’ Goonhavern Primary School. There’s a wide choice of independent schools to choose from including Truro School, Truro High School for Girls, Polwhele House School and Truro School Preparatory School.


The local pub – The New Inn – in neighbouring Goonhavern has a great reputation. It’s a cosy local’s pub serving a good range of food and beverages with locally sourced ingredients. Head to Perranporth to find a wider choice of well-regarded eateries such as The Watering Hole, Masalla Tandoori, Alcatraz Bar & Café, No.4 Breakfast & Bistro, Summer House and The Seiners Arms Bar & Restaurant. Or for something very special, Michelin-starred dining can be found at Paul Ainsworth at No.6 in Padstow (23 miles) which has a beautiful Georgian Townhouse setting and includes Ci Ci’s Bar.


Truro offers a large Waitrose supermarket which adjoins The Great Cornish Food Store which showcases a superb range of Cornish fair. There’s also an M&S Food Hall, Sainsbury & Tesco stores.


Equation Fitness is around 5 minutes away by car where there are regular classes. A little further afield at Cubert you will find Kernow Strength and Conditioning who provide a great atmosphere for working out. If relaxation is more your thing, Fistral Beach Hotel and Spa is less than 10 miles away and provides a whole range of treatments.


The Ventongimps Moor nature reserve is a rich mosaic of wet and dry heath, as well as areas of bog, ponds and woodland. The combination provides a unique series of habitats, once widespread, but now restricted to a few special places. Dorset heath occurs here and the ponds provide an excellent habitat for dragonflies and damselflies. In 1977, the remains of a Second World War bomber were found here, the hole formed a valuable pond and dogs are welcome on a lead. If you prefer some refreshment at the end of your walk, head down to Perranporth Beach where dogs are allowed on the beach all year around, although during July and August they are required to be on a lead between 10am and 5pm. There are plenty of pubs and restaurants that allow dogs in Perranporth.
