    Beautiful surroundings and blissfully peaceful. Lovely gardens to enjoy the birdsong. The 1st floor living area was delightful. Lovely walks and beaches close by. All in all, the perfect spot to enjoy a week in Cornwall.

  • "We spent a lovely holiday with our family at Brunnion House."

    Petsy and Roger are very welcoming and helpful, creating a peaceful atmosphere. The house was spotless and comfortable with a large living room and a fireplace, which we used every evening while we were playing board games or reading stories. The WiFi was fast and the location is excellent, we were able to get everywhere we were planning to in a short time. We are hoping to return to Brunnion House soon.

  • "We had a great time at Brunnion House."

    The friendly and approachable owners were close by and nothing was too much trouble. It provided access to most places with a short drive to local supermarkets and other shops, and of course the local beaches. The dogs loved a play on the beach to burn off some energy. There was a dog friendly pub a few minutes drive around the corner, but we enjoyed the peace and quiet of our surroundings. The house was warm and cosy after a day out. The garden birds were plentiful including over 20 gold finches, a pleasant sight even in the pouring rain - well it was Cornwall in January but it was a lovely relaxing break. It's been a about 14 months since our last visit to the South West of Cornwall, but I think the local drivers need to have some lessons in driving etiquette. They are generally so aggressive and impolite. However, it didn't spoil our break.

  • "We love visiting Cornwall and, this year, Brunnion House made it a perfect break."

    The hosts, Patsy and Roger were on holiday when we arrived so Ali, who was looking after the house in their absence, welcomed us and showed us into the house. What a beauty! The house was warm and inviting, comfortable bed, hot shower and a cosy kitchen and dining area where we ate breakfast watching the birds in the garden. And the upstairs sitting room....large, comfortable and beautifully decorated with views from windows on all sides. We were made up! The weather was perfect, blue skies and sunshine every day which was ideal for visiting the scenic coastal villages. On Thursday night the weather turned and the heavens opened. Come Friday morning, it was still bucketing down so we decided to stay in the house for the day. Unheard of, for us on holiday, but it didn't bother us as the house was so warm and cosy and we had the chance to read Patsy's very interesting book on the history of the area. Then we met Patsy. Such a friendly and likeable lady and full of information. Thank you so much, Patsy and Roger, we had a lovely holiday in your beautiful house and would love to return, We wish both of you all the very best.

  • "Brunnion House was the perfect place for our family and dog this summer."

    The owners were very kind and welcoming to us and the house was very spacious and comfortable with beautiful views over nearby Trencrom Hill. We also enjoyed watching the nature in the well kept gardens. Brunnion House is in a very peaceful location but only a short drive to lots of dog friendly places like Porth Kidney beach, Mexico Towans beach and Trencrom Hill. We also went to St Ives town and Carbis Bay which were close by. We would definitely like to stay again in the future.

  • "Cornwall is a lovely place but not dog friendly at all st ives is very bad for ..."

    Cornwall is a lovely place but not dog friendly at all st ives is very bad for parking and the food is average pub food but the beaches are lovely but couldn’t take 2 small french bulldogs on any beach in st ives so won’t be revisiting

    The two St. Ives beaches that are available for dogs are only usable at low to half tide but that there was a lovely area know as 'The Island' that is totally dog friendly and available at any time. Guests were supplied with a 'dog friendly guide' to the area. We advised that parking in St Ives could be a problem but that it was possible to catch the train, which is very reasonable and takes dogs for free, from either Carbis Bay or St Erth stations. We did tell them that the pub half a mile up the road from here was under new management and that we had eaten there and considered the food to be tasty average pub food. There are plenty of other places in the area, with parking, that do excellent food. Property Owner

  • "We loved the peace and the privacy of the property, the lovely garden and the amount of light were fantastic."

    We found the double bed tiny for a couple (we are small in height and weight) and unfortunately the cleaning approximate, especially under and around rugs we accidentally touched, under the pillows in the seating area in the kitchen. Also an ant treatment is recommended as they appeared very frequently, even just with a cup of tea - no food! -by the kitchen window. The pump for the water in the kitchen is extremely noisy and every time anyone uses any water, like the loo at night time, it goes off - it would be good to place it outside or to put some sound insulation in the cupboard. A minor suggestion on the info pack: it was overall useful, we personally found unfriendly the amount of details and tone of the instructions (on how to deal with garbage for instance) and did not make us feel welcome. We often rent cottages in Cornwall and most people recycle and are happy to help! Hope these can help

    Many thanks for your feedback. The owners greet their guests and advise them they are available, if they need any help with anything at all during their stay. The double bed is a standard double and she will address the points you mentioned regarding the cleaning with her cleaner and check for any ants. Again thank you for your feedback. Property Owner

    We'd come a long way and for a family funeral, so not the best of times for us personally. However, our stay at the cottage completely lifted our spirits and the house provided somewhere comfortable and very pleasant as a base. We'd like to express our thanks to Patsy and Roger for the all-too-brief time we had there. You made us so very welcome and looked after our every need. It was also very nice to get to know you a little bit. I'm bookmarking your place for a future stay when we're in west Cornwall visiting again as a family. It's a superb home in a gorgeous setting; I feel we've discovered a little gem.

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.
