Built in 1907, The Granary was sensitively converted to a house in the 1920s. It has a large sheltered lawn and the sea, visible from upstairs, is about an eight minute walk away. The house enjoys fine morning light and the sunset sky can be enjoyed while lying in the bath

Charging and Extras
The standard rent at Porth-en-alls Prussia Cove is lower than comparable places to stay. However, you should be aware of what is included and not included in this.
Unlike most other places, electricity, oil, logs, gas, bath and bed linen are extras. This keeps the rent down so you only pay for what you actually use while saving wasted power and unnecessary/unneeded laundry.
We read your electricity meter the day you arrive, record this on a brown envelope provided and you read it again and settle up on departure according to consumption (multiplying the difference by the unit price and leaving payment in the brown envelope with a cheque or cash or by bank transfer).
Oil, where central heating applies, is also metered in this way. Logs and kindling paid per bag used and use of laundry facilities (where shared with other cottages) per cycle used.
Similarly, unless you bring your own, bathroom and bed linen/beds made up, is ordered in advance on your booking form. Dogs, cots, high chairs are extras, as is cleaning at the end (optional).
What time is check in and where do I pick up the keys?
Check in is currently 4pm (go straight to the house) and departure 9.30am. This may be flexible so ask the office. The front door (not the one up the steps) will be left unlocked for your arrival, the keys hanging up inside
Can I arrive late at night?
Yes, any time after 4pm. We will leave the door unlocked, but you need to know where you are going and how to get there as it is quite difficult to find after dark if you are a first time visitor
Where do I park my car?
There is room for a maximum of two cars in front of the house
Can I bring a pet?
Yes, but dogs and cats must be declared in advance and paid for and dogs must be kept off all furniture. You should bring a blanket/bed for them and a dog bowl and be very considerate to your neighbours. Please double-check your garden on departure and always be aware of your pet’s whereabouts
What is access like for limited mobility?
The bathroom is on the first floor and there are steps up to the bedrooms
How much should I budget for extras?
£20-55 depending on the time of year as this includes cooking, hot water, light and heating. £15 for two bags of logs and kindling
Can I pay for my electricity and other fuel by BACS on departure?
We would prefer this to be settled by cash or cheque and left in the envelope provided before you leave but as long as you settle it on or soon after departure, BACS is OK. Bank details are on the brown envelope, please add the booking code as a ref. After adding your calculations, please leave the envelope on the table, don’t take it with you
What is the phone signal like?
Is there wifi?
Not in the house but available in a room very nearby
Is there a place to charge my car?
Only Trewartha has a dedicated charge point so far. We are working on this
Will satnav help find The Granary?
Probably not much if using only the postcode as most of the houses have the same one. Try ‘What Three Words’ and the printed map
What are the bedding arrangements?
Unless you bring your own duvet, pillow cases (two per person) and bottom sheet, you must order these from us or you will have to sleep on a mattress protector under a thin bedspread -which is not allowed!
How is the house heated?
Please refer to the overview
Are candles permitted?
Yes, but only in proper candlesticks. Tealights are not permitted. The responsible person in your party must make sure that candles are safely placed and extinguished at bed time. We trust you to be extremely careful and acquaint yourself with the location of extinguishers
Can we light an open fire?
Yes in the sitting room only, but you must make sure the guard is in place when the room is not occupied. Use only our logs or other properly seasoned logs. Don’t stoke up before leaving the building. Again, we trust you to be extremely careful and acquaint yourself with the location of extinguishers
How far is the nearest pub/restaurant?
The Falmouth Packet (1.5 miles, 20 mins on foot) is more of a restaurant than a pub these days but it is still fine to go there for a drink only. The food is good and so is the beer
How far is the nearest good surfing?
Prah Sands, but it depends on the weather. Kenneggy can be very good when conditions are right. Conditions on the North coast (30 minutes away) are usually the opposite to the South coast
Are picnic blankets provided?
No and please don’t be tempted to use the bedspreads nor cushions outside
Is there a microwave?
Not as standard but we have one or two if required. Ask in advance
Is it OK to smoke?
No, I’m afraid not inside. If you smoke outside, please pick up and dispose of your butts as we don’t have time to do this for you
Is there a TV?
No, none of the houses has one, by popular request
