With a dreamy position right on the edge of Carminowe Creek, the eastern arm of Loe Pool, Pentire Farm looks out over the still, shimmering water, with the distant rumble of the waves breaking on Loe Bar beyond.
This remote 18th-century farm has been converted into two separate dwellings: The single storey barn, Lower Pentire Barn is on one level with a spacious living area open to its original rafter and Lower Pentire Farmhouse, a traditional building with its original features including slate floors and low beams.
Both have tranquil gardens enjoying bucolic views over the Loe and fields, while the buzzards wheel in the sky above and the gulls chatter on the water.
The restaurants, pubs and shops of Porthleven are a pleasant two-mile walk along the sands from here: those of Helston just two miles inland by car or foot.
