17th-century farmhouse former barn renovation - about Ednovean



A lifetime’s passion

I must admit our home at Ednovean Farm has been a lifetime’s passion to renovate and carefully protect the integrity of the old building, while creating modern comforts with a fresh country style. Read more about The conversion of the historic 17th-century barn to an ivy clad farmhouse


A landscaped courtyard garden was created where the farmyard once stood and an Italian Garden is set in the horse’s old sand school. Horses’ still look out of their stables over the car park as our guests arrive – two passions that have lasted a lifetime : – horses and Ednovean Farm


Ednovean Farm is just a five minutes walk from the sandy beach of Perranuthnoe, the South West coastal footpath with sea views to St Michael’s Mount and Penzance.  So why not leave your car with us and enjoy the relaxing Cornish days and be well fed in the local pub and beach cafe or maybe just sit in our gardens to unwind!

How our B&B started

Our love of horses brought us together at Ednovean Farm and it was a much loved 17th century barn that we renovated and rebuilt to become our home and begin married life together.


We moved in on the day of our marriage in May 1991 and by the middle of the year we set a little hand painted sign at the end of the lane proudly reading B&B. Days went passed and nobody came until at last a lady arrived to be our first guest – I carefully opened the visitors book at the second page so she wouldn’t realise her pioneering status!
