    Perfect remote place. When we arrived we were all highly impressed with how clean everything was. Minor issues with Wi-Fi not working but owners very helpful. Highly recommend. Would love to come back.

    This year you sent me an e-mail confirming my request but did not inform them. Mrs Penrose phoned me at home as she remembered the problems of previous stays, to check if I required the double this time.

  • "We had a lovely stay at this property which helped to recharge our batteries."

    Rubbish collection is on a Thursday, so clients should be encouraged to put out same on a Wednesday night (rather than when they leave on Friday) otherwise - as we found - the bins were both full with previous clients' waste. Otherwise, a wonderful time was had by all.

  • "A stair gate would be very useful at the top of the stairs as they are a bulky item to travel with."

    Lovely stay thank you, very clean, comfortable and well stocked. Beautiful flowers Very peaceful, not even a tractor sound like we are used to in rural Dorset. Lovely walks, near a superb playpark and a short drive to towns and beaches. Wifi was a bit of a pain to use when trying to book days out - rather intermittent - so we just turned up and paid on the day, so not really a problem but my advice to others would be to book these days before you leave home.

  • "The Hayloft is out of this world!"

    There is so much space both outside and inside, and is so private that we felt happy leaving doors open for our son and dog to roam independently. The quality of furniture, bedding and extra special additions is outstanding. Sitting on the balcony, watching the sun set as a fox scurried through the next field was truly memorable. The owners could have easily squashed another two buildings within the grounds but the feeling is that they want to give a quality experience not greedily make money. We cannot recommend The Hayloft enough.

    The standard of cleanliness in the cottage was outstanding. It was lovely that the cottage was so well equipped - it had everything we needed. The location of the cottage was brilliant too - so near to lots of great places and beaches. The sea view was amazing ....we enjoyed being able to have our breakfast each morning with the view. It would have been lovely to have had an additional seating area in the garden so we could have enjoyed our dinner outside with the weather being so warm. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend both Helpful holidays and The Hayloft to anyone!

  • "Our second stay at this stunning house."

    Again spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Welcome pack appreciated after a long journey. Lovely to sit on balcony and admire wonderful sea view whilst our dog played in the large secure garden. Fantastic location for exploring this area of Cornwall, just a couple of minutes from the main road but so peaceful and quiet. The only thing in our opinion that would make this stay perfect would be a nice garden furniture set for the patio so we could eat in the beautiful garden. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to visit Cornwall and we will definitely be booking again

    Great for dogs - the huge garden and beaches nearby. Candidly a new mattress on the master bed would be good (not as hard) & if there's anything that can be done to strengthen wifi (small niggle) that would be perfect as can't really stream using Netflix. But, we'll be booking again as we love it.

    This would be great for those with little ones who may not be out in the evenings. Stair gates should be fitted for toddlers both inside and out. This gave us continuous anxiety!! Lovely quiet location within a few minutes drive of a lovely beach and plenty of good restaurants and pubs in Porthleven.

    The garden is huge and so peaceful. The location is perfect for visiting so many amazing places such as Lizard Point, Mullion Cove, Rinsey and Poldhu Cove to name but a few. The local pub also does a very good Sunday roast takeaway although hopefully we will all be able to eat inside again soon! We will definitely book to stay there again another time. Sykes have been very efficient too. One small point, if the weather was warm a couple of sun loungers would be great for a snooze in the garden!

  • "The view towards the Lizard from the Hayloft is simply stunning and the picture on the website does not do this justice!"

    Fabulous barn conversion, we found it spotlessly clean with welcome pack much appreciated - and supplies still in their wrappings also welcomed in the current Covid circumstances. Well equipped kitchen and very nice to be able to bake whilst on holiday. Very comfy beds and we loved the Mira showers. Our dogs loved the garden and spent lots of time during running around safely whilst we enjoyed a glass of wine on the balcony enjoying the views. Lovely peaceful setting near the village, unfortunately not able to see the frescos in the church due to Covid restrictions so will just have to come back another time! Walked into Porthleven, and had many lovely walks around the coastal paths at Rinsey, a short drive away. Would recommend visiting Church cove beach and walking up to the nearby Marconi monument for lovely views towards Mullion cove and the pasties at the beach cafe at Poldhu cove en route! Marazion at sunset is a must and Gwithian Towans for huge beach and walks over the dunes. We had a great week and would highly recommend.

    Thank you for your lovely review. We are glad you enjoyed your holiday and that you loved The Hayloft. We hope to see you again in the future to create new amazing memories. Property Owner

  • "We received a text message from the housekeeper advising that the cottage would not be ready until 3:30 (instead of 3:00 as advertised)."

    This was not unreasonable as additional time in getting a property prepared to Covid proof standards is to be expected. After a 380 mile journey we were pleased to note that the property was as depicted by the Sykes website. However, it quickly became clear that the standard of cleanliness was far below the expected standards. Toilets were spotted with faeces, hair and urine. Mirrors were smeared. Interior windows smeared with grease (or maybe spit!). Crumbs were on the dining table and chairs. The kitchen; filthy hob, oven and grill. Dirty work tops. Kitchen cupboards and handles filthy. Fridge drawers engrained with food deposits. Dirty cutlery drawer and contents. Dirty crockery and greasy glasses. Pan drawer covered in grease with a dirty frying pan and utensil on the top and finally Disgusting washing up bowl (both interior and exterior filthy). Rather than contact the owners and/or Sykes who could only have requested the cleaner(s) to return and do a proper job whilst we sat around waiting for the issues to be addressed, my wife and I set about cleaning the kitchen ourselves. This necessitated the entire crockery, glassware and utensils going in the dishwasher and the purchase of additional anti-bacterial cleaning wipes. Some 2 to 3 hours later (after a 10 hour drive) and 4 dishwasher cycles within 24 hours, the kitchen approached something of the standard that other Sykes properties have provided (including this troubled year). The hob was cleaned 3 times during our stay but we were not prepared to tackle the oven or grill. Photographs have been and can be provided if required!

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. The owners would have welcomed the opportunity to set this straight during your stay so we are sorry to learn that you didn't report this during your holiday. On this occasion the cleaner had been compromised by the workload left by previous guests: a system has now been set in place to ensure this doesn't happen on future occasions. Property Owner

    But, I need to say the cleanliness leaves a little bit to be desired. The ensiute shower doesn't drain, the windows are really dirty, and the window latches are all broken. The oven is really dirty and both times we have stayed we have found ourselves cleaning for a few hours to make it feel home. We have booked again, as we find this location amazing, so.hopefully some if not all if these issue will fixed.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback following your recent stay at The Hayloft. We have spoken to the owner who was sorry to hear the property did not meet expectations on this occasion and has taken note of all points raised . New handles for the windows have been ordered, however there have been issues with the suppliers, we have been told they will be fitted in the next 2 days. Due to the bad weather we have faced in recent weeks, the window cleaner has fallen behind schedule, again this will be rectified at the earliest convenience. We will be meeting with our housekeeper to address the cleaning issues. Despite the points raised we are very pleased to see you will be returning to Neptune. Property Owner

On the edge of Breage, about 500 yards from the pub is The Hayloft, a detached 'upside down' cottage which has been beautifully converted from a stone barn.

Inside, is no less impressive, designed to a high standard, great care has been taken to provide you with everything you'll need for a wonderful holiday.

About the location


Porthleven 2 miles ; Helston 3 miles ; Penzance 10 miles.

A peaceful, rural village located in between Helston and Penzance, Breage is home to the 12th century St Breaca church – and on Tregonning Hill, the highest point in the village, are the remains of an ancient settlement. During the 19th century, Breage was an important mining centre, producing considerable amounts of tin and copper. Today, the village has a small but welcoming community, a lovely pub, playing fields and a village hall. The much-loved harbour town of Porthleven is just a short drive away, with its various waterside inns and restaurants – and the glorious stretch of golden sand at Praa Sands beach is just 3 miles along the coast.

This property offers the following short breaks:

  • Off-season
