  • "Lovely clean, very well equipped, comfortable beds, great showers, only found the stairs a problem as my husband & I are both 71 & they are very steep & had to watch our every step for fear of falling, also could have done with some comfortable outdoor seating as there was only wooden table & benches otherwise a most enjoyable stay."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our break here."

    Very central for both coasts. The only thing we would recommend is at this time of year it is worth putting the heating on before people arrive, it smelt a bit damp, the cottage took a good day with the log burner going and the under floor heating on before we turned it totally down. Also there were no recycle bags anywhere so it all ended up being put in a bin, where someone else had done the same. Thank you for a lovely week.

    Pleasant rural surroundings. Car parking was excellent as was the garden and the views from the Hay Loft.

  • "This is not a 2 bedroom property."

    A day bed under the stairs with a curtain separating it from a hallway does not constitute a bedroom. Especially for a teenage girl. The pictures advertising the property make it seem larger than it is. The front room is cramped, the sofa and chair is uncomfortable. The WiFi is from the main farm house on an extension and drops out repeatedly. It wasn’t possible to reprogrammed the TV with the new wireless network. There is not enough storage in the property for a family. Especially as one of the wardrobes is used to house the cleaning items. This is a nice property but it doesn’t offer value for money. Especially having spent the previous week in Falmouth in a sought after waterside location for £500 less.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback and we are sorry to hear the property didn't meet your expectations: as you can see from previous reviews other guests have been really happy with the accommodation (which is as described on the listing). The owners have recently made improvements to the broadband and the TV appears to be working as it should. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay and was blessed with great weather."

    Only real issue was that the internet was very poor. Which only really effected us with the rare times we watched TV as we was only able to connect to Netflix and BBC iPlayer once.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are pleased to hear you you enjoyed your stay. Wifi speeds can sometimes be less efficient in rural areas. Since your stay, the owners have taken steps to improve the broadband offering at Hayloft. Property Owner

  • "The only thing we can say is the sofa was uncomfortable and the Wi-Fi was a nightmare but these things didn’t ruin our holiday Lovely welcome coffee, tea, scones etc when we arrived."

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you liked Hay Loft and had a nice holiday. The housekeeping team will check the sofa to ensure there are no issues. With regard to the Wi-Fi, the bad weather of that week caused some issues but it is now back to normal speed. We hope you will visit Hay Loft again for more lovely holidays Property Owner

  • "The Hayloft is an excellent place to to stay and is perfectly placed for visiting all the Cornish attractions."

    It's only a few minutes off the A30 and is not difficult to find. A lovely rural setting yet only some 30 minutes from St Ives and Falmouth. The facilities are very good and we had a great holiday.

  • "This cottage was a perfect retreat, tucked away from everybody but still close to all the major spots to visit like Falmouth, Penzance and Hayle."

    We would certainly recommend this cottage to anyone who wants a cosy, unique getaway

  • "We can understand the need for cleanliness with Covid, but we were unable to book in until 4."

    30pm then told we had to be out by 9.00am rather than 10.00am. This did have a detrimental effect on the holiday as you lost a a day, as you had to pack and clean the day before to be out on time. I would also like to say with all that extra time the property was actually very dusty which did surprise me.

    Thank you for taking the time to send in your comments regarding your recent stay. It is currently necessary to change the times by an hour each end the holiday, due to the current situation. We are disappointed to hear that you found some dust in the property, I can assure you that had you let us know during your stay, we would have taken action at the time. Once again thank you for your comments and we do hope you will book with us in the future. Property Owner

  • "Nice property and exactly how we thought it would be, and we would possibly stay there again for the right price."

    The only negatives we could say is that the Hay loft wasn’t cleaned to a good enough standard given all the Covid concerns and how they wanted us out by 9 am instead of 10am.The toilet wasn’t clean enough with a very loose and broken toilet seat and quite a lot of dust around the place.It was also probably slightly too far out from the A30 although the location gave us opportunity to see other parts of Cornwall we had not seen before. Good property but with a little more work it could be a very good property

  • "We were thrilled with how welcoming, comfortable and well-appointed the cottage was."

    The milk in the fridge, the cream tea (scones, jam and cream), the availability of tea and coffee and even a jar of dog biscuits were particularly appreciated after a long drive. The quiet, rural location really suited us and the proximity of local lanes in which to walk the dog in the morning couldn’t be faulted. Having our own enclosed garden space was also a godsend. We all enjoyed a wonderful week at the Hayloft, going out for walks and spending time on the local beautiful beaches (Godrevy was our favourite), before relaxing on an evening - the WiFi in the cottage was also fast enough for us to stream Netflix. Thank you for a wonderful stay - we’ve already booked to return next year!

  • "The television did not work having sound only, after reporting this it took until the Thursday (5 days)of our holiday to be replaced."

    The only other issue was there was no wood/logs supplied for the log burning stove which we assumed would be when the advert stated fuel supplied. There was also no bin for the building and only found out toward the end of our holiday that it was moved (due to storm Callum) to the adjacent property to stop it blowing away. These were only slight negatives and we loved our stay at the Hayloft and would recommend it to others.

  • "Just a couple of minor things."

    Wifi was unavailable on the first couple of days (probably due to the master router not being switched on) but cleared with strong access on the Monday. The access is rather steep and due to the main parking area being gravelled, is difficult not to get some wheel-spin especially with front-wheeled drive cars. Other than that; a thoroughly enjoyable week with easy access to both North and South coasts.

  • "Great property."

    Gorgeous and Well maintained. All facilities we could need. However the drive has a slight incline so when going up it loads of the gravel is thrown up against the car. Maybe need a new drive or gentler slope. Apart from that. Fantastic

  • "We were very pleased with the Hayloft."

    Cream tea and flowers on arrival and milk in the fridge. What a lovely welcome. Very clean and everything you need for a holiday. The on-suite showers were fantastic. Fun watching the crows building their nest in the old barn. Bit dodgy getting the car out of the drive, you need help guiding the car out, a tight fit for a big car and a busy lane at times. Plenty to see and do in the area.

Don your walking boots and pack a picnic; abundant wildlife and rolling countryside awaits you.

Fabulous Falmouth, also home to The National Maritime Museum, is within easy reach.

For a different day out why not visit the quieter waters of the picturesque Restronguet Creek and take the opportunity to stop for some lunch at the well-known waterside Pandora Inn at Mylor Bridge.

Today, Camborne is home to Heartlands, a community space covering 19 acres and scattered with remnants of the mining industry, providing a free space for visitors to explore the heritage of Cornwall, browse art and craft projects, stroll through the gardens and sit and share a picnic or enjoy lunch at the Red River Café. From Camborne centre you can follow an interesting town trail, or spend the afternoon in the museum before visiting the array of shops and pubs. A ten-minute drive from Camborne brings you to a wealth of sandy Cornish beaches including Portreath, Gwithian and Porthtowan. Camborne is ideal for exploring Land’s End, the Lizard Peninsula, Truro and the Eden Project, which are all less than an hour’s drive away, ideal for a day trip.
