  • "For those with a young family an inexpensive garden lounge set would be great to enjoy good weather in the garden."

    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 Hayloft was just perfect."

    Beautiful property. Lovely location. It was spotlessly clean. The dogs loved the huge garden and we loved the views. We will go back again.

    Mrs JamesJul 2021

  • "The Hayloft is in a wonderful setting and very comfortable."

    Lovely views of the sea and countryside. Its very comfortable and has everything you'd expect. We had a lovely time and would certainly consider booking again.

    Mr EvansJul 2021

  • "We love our time at The Hayloft - this is our 5th or 6th visit, we’ve actually lost count."

    It has everything you’d need from holiday accommodation & is in a beautiful setting. Porthleven with its wonderful, picturesque harbour & restaurants 10 mins one way, and Praa Sands beach 10 mins the other way. Absolutely gorgeous-we’re already looking at dates for next year.

    Mrs QuiggJun 2021

  • "We absolutely loved the Hayloft with so much space both upstairs and outside, and with great views in every direction."

    The kitchen was very well equipped and the chairs and sofa were super comfy. Sitting on the balcony in the morning and evening was amazing, looking out over the fields and listening to the birds singing. We will definitely return.

    Mrs JonesJun 2021

  • "Great location as a base to visit local harbours and tourist attractions , located near the small town of Breage with shop and dog friendly pub ."

    Then literally 5 minutes by car into Porthelven , with harbour , shops, pubs and restaurants. Ideally location for family with a pet to explore South West Cornwall

    Mr ParryMay 2021

  • "The Hayloft was a beautiful place to stay, the pictures don't really do it justice."

    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.

  • "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!

The property

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.

The far-reaching panoramic sea views to Porthleven in one direction and Breage church in the other are simply superb.

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.

Handsome oak stairs lead up to a bright and spacious, dual aspect, open-plan living area, with original beams, Velux windows and a door leading to a decked area and steps down to garden.

On the ground-floor are three pretty bedrooms a king-size double with en suite shower-room, a twin (zip-linkable to 6' double), and a single.

Outside, the enclosed lawned garden with raised decking and table and chairs is a great place for enjoying lovely sunsets.

The Hayloft is an idyllic cottage in a secluded location, yet close to the wonderful surfing beach of Praa Sands and Rinsey headland for lovely coastal walks.

Further afield, the old town of Helston has a range of amenities, and Flambards family theme park is a great day out for your little thrill seekers.

For a more relaxed turn of pace, why not try the seal sanctuary at Gweek.

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.
