    It was very quiet and peaceful there. The owners who were very nearby were there to greet us when we arrived and couldn't do enough for us to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed.

  • "Just reflecting on an amazing week at Brunnion Barns."

    Everything we needed including a very comfy cottage, friendly hosts, great weather, delicious local nosh & booze and we were able to share it with our 2 pooches. We ALL had a fantastic time! Lovely (long) walks along the lanes and footpaths to St Ives, St Michael's Mt, an Iron Age village and loads of other beautiful places. Just wonderful. If you're looking for a great place to use as a base for exploring this part of Cornwall with your 4 legged friends, you will love Brunnion Cottage - we all did!! Thanks Patsy & Roger from Gareth & Karen (humans), Charlie (Labradoodle) & Zak (Poodle)

    Helpful owners on hand if needed. The cottage is a short drive from St Ives , Carbis Bay , and also handy if you have dogs as Dog Friendly Porthkidney is also 10 minutes away . It is also a great base to explore the western tip of Cornwall . Spotlessly clean , well equipped and lovely cottage garden. Small courtyard is lovely for a late afternoon glass or two !!

  • "Not very dog friendly at all, trying to get to the dog field a tractor came and we had no room to get through, owner very helpful, but the way to the field was covered with brambles."

    Someone cutting the lawn at the back while i was in the shower . Not very private, I booked the cottage because I wanted to be alone after family problems, the owner was trying to be helpful, maybe I should have said i wanted to be left alone. beige carpets for a dog with muddy paws i had to put blankets down . Also not allowed to leave the dog in the cottage, not even when i went to the shop, so don’t know what i was supposed to do with him. It was a lovely place, spotless and great views, nice garden, it would have been perfect for two people . But dog fields were not great, one had cows in and the other was hard to get to, If you just want to get to the beaches and take your dog there it was great.. Couldn’t fault the cottage and the bed was comfortable .

    This response is saddening and surprising as we have many guests with dogs who love it here and many repeat bookings. We are in a rural area, the lanes can be narrow but the tractor drivers are always considerate of dog walkers and horse riders. Guests are made aware that we garden on Wednesdays, don't look through windows and never start until late morning. We supply quilted covers and dog towels and dog owners can also use the hose and tap at the top of the drive for cleaning paws. There were 7 emails between us and the guest, very friendly in tone, and we understood that a crate was being brought for the dog. We say in our details for dog owners that dogs may be left in crates for short periods of time. There are no brambles between the two field gates, the cows (4 little adults & 3 calves) were contained behind an electric fence leaving 3 acres for guest use. We apologize if the guest felt we invaded her privacy. No indication was given that she wished to be left alone. Property Owner

We did have some issues with Sykes Holidays however. I tried to amend our booking online to delete two of our party from the booking and was unsuccessful. Follow up telephone calls to Sykes (as advised on the website) were not answered. In other respects, booking, reminder emails, advice regarding the holiday Sykes performed well.

  • "The cottage has a strong smell of damp especially the double bedroom, I understand that it's an old building but we have stayed in older without a damp smell, even clothing hung in wardrobes smelt damp."

    I think it should be addressed by the owners and can't understand why none of the reviews mentioned this it's not something than can be ignored because as soon as you open you can smell it.

    We are very sorry that you felt the building smelt damp. We wished you had mentioned that on the many occasions we spoke with you. If windows were left open more often then this would be unlikely to happen. When windows and doors are closed and people are staying in the building then dampness occurs. The bedroom and bathroom window should be internally left open. Property Owner

    Peaceful and although remote it is in a great position to explore Cornwall. The owners are extremely helpful and the barn was perfect with all necessary amenities, including excellent WiFi. Waking up hearing the birds and cows is just the best. Lovely summerhouse and we had a a great family BBQ at the location. We had two small dogs who had a brilliant time. Plenty of shade from them in the hot weather. A few places that I loved that are nearby. Lakeside Cabin Watermill Pub Trencom Hill (2 mins down the road, fabulous views across the coast).

Brunnion Barns

Brunnion Barns are two beautiful cottages, skillfully converted from 200 year old granite barns in an idyllic rural location yet only 3 miles from the award winning Carbis Bay Beach, reputed to be one of the finest in Cornwall. Just 4.5 miles away is a real favourite, the harbour town and seaside resort of St Ives with its multitude of Art Galleries, restaurants and stunning beaches. Hayle , Penzance, Lands End and the main A30 are also in easy driving distance making this property a superb touring location. Set high up on Lelant Downs with wonderful far reaching views, Brunnion Barns offer homely and spacious accommodation, which is baby, child and pet friendly with a field for dog walking, exercising and ball games. The Barns can be booked individually or together to accommodate up to 10 for a memorable and relaxing holiday or short break in a stunning location in one of the most beautiful areas of Cornwall. As well as beach based pleasures, horse riding, golf and fishing are also available as are many Award winning tourist destinations. The old Cornish stone hedges still border the lanes around Brunnion and, in spring & early summer, are full of wild flowers. Bird feeders bring many species into the gardens and for the keen birders Hayle Estuary & Marazion Marshes often provide interesting rarities. For those interested in Cornish Archaeology and Heritage there is a special file of historical sites and it includes a brief history of the immediate area. A file detailing the beaches, pubs & restaurants and local amenities that are dog friendly is available.

Penzance 6 miles.

One of Cornwall's prettiest harbour towns, St Ives offers narrow streets, tight-packed cottages nestling around the quayside, the Tate Gallery and Barbara Hepworth museum, fabulous beaches, superb shops, a thriving community of artists, great pubs and restaurants and much more. With its semi Bohemian lifestyle and romantic air, it's easy to see why this is the county's premier holiday resort. The surrounding area has much for the visitor to see and do with abundant wildlife, fabulous coastal walks, top quality surfing and the Celtic mysteries of the Land's End Peninsula are all within easy reach. A superb destination!
