  • "This is a lovely, comfortable, welcoming house."

    IIt was spotlessly clean with Covid- secure information and plenty of hand sanitiser. It's an deal base if you're looking for a relaxing holiday and for exploring the North Cornwall coast by car or by foot. The house is spacious and beautifully decorated - particularly liked the Amanda McAndrews art work. There is a lovely garden with seating and eating areas. The accommodation is flexible for a group or families but is not too big for a couple. A lovely bonus was the roadside stall at the bungalow next door selling eggs and locally produced jams etc. We received a warm, informative email from the owners a few days before our holiday and one during our holiday to check everything was OK. Highly recommend this property.

  • "We loved our stay at Penbarden Barn!"

    It's a beautiful building well off the beaten track, surrounded by farmland, with great views across the North Cornwall Coast. It's really well equipped (with super fast broadband – far better than the usual poor connections provided) and well laid out for larger groups (there were six of us, but it would have comfortably hosted 8). It's close to the lovely rocky beach at Crackington Haven, and in easy reach of Bude to the North, and Boscastle, Tintagel and Padstow to the South. Only a couple of miles from the A39 Coast road, but completely tranquil with only the occasional tractor or intrepid driver taking on the challenging road to Widemouth via Millook (not for the faint of heart, due to its steep, narrow, twisting road… heading towards Crackington/Wainhouse Corner is much easier!). Covid rules were implemented sensibly and proportionately, and it felt as through the place was clean and well looked after. The owners were also responsive when we had the occasional question. All in all it was a brilliant place to stay, and we hope to be back again in the future.

  • "Cottage accommodated 8 of us easily, was plenty of space didn’t feel we were on top of each other."

    Downstairs double bedroom worked well, if you are a earlier riser. It was next to kitchen and there was shower and toilet on same floor so you did disturb rest of party.

  • "The house is beautiful and really comfortable."

    We had plenty of space for the 6 adults and 2 children in our group. Bonus was having 3 separate bathrooms and easy parking for 3 big cars. We were unsure what to expect with the Covid requirements but we had everything there we could have needed. Fantastic location and the sunset view from the coastal path behind the house was absolutely stunning. We will be returning!

    Really well equipped, felt safe and clean given COVID, and a really excellent location.

  • "Lovely property but still a few issues that can be easily resolved."

    Still no washing up bowl or plug for the sink in the kitchen. En-suite sink still still slow emptying water. No instructions on how to use central heating. Property sleeps 8 but lounge only comfortably seats 5.

  • "It is a lovely barn conversion, well appointed but needs a slight spruce up."

    Just a small number of niggles; a radio would have been nice, a hook is needed on the shower room door, the outside of the windows need a clean, a shower/bath mat would have been handy. Small things perhaps but they make the difference. Oh, the key safe outside is so stiff you struggle to open it.

  • "Penbarden Barn was perfect for our needs, well equipped and spotless."

    It felt like home immediately and the downstairs bedroom and bathroom were ideal for an elderly friend who cannot manage stairs. Location was peaceful and view across the fields to the sea was magical at sunset.

  • "Fantastic, well equipped accommodation."

    Plenty of space of all of us 7 adults and 1 child. Lovely scenic location. Sink in en suite didn't run freely, not sure if there was a blockage somewhere. This didn't ruin the holiday at all. Would highly recommend and stay ourselves again.

  • "As specified above we were all basically very satisfied with our holiday."

    The following are more like observations than criticisms. There was no starter wood for the wood burning stove. (In the event would not have been used anyway.) The kitchen sink plug did not seal so that hot water was needed to run continuously to wash up in that sink. This was a waste of water and heat. Otherwise fine

  • "It's a lovely cottage with plenty of space and great facilities for the six of us."

    Our only criticism would be the use of rather overpowering air freshener pots all over the place - we had to collect them up and put them in a plastic bag in the boot room for the duration of our stay - maybe worth rethinking that one. But otherwise no complaints despite the wind and rain - we had a great stay!

About the location


Boscastle 6 miles.

Crackington Haven is a charming cove near Boscastle, with a mix of rockpools, a sandy beach and good surf. There are two beach shops and cafes, which are wonderful to relax in and look out over the blue seas of the bay. Walking this section of the South West Coast Path, much of it owned by the National Trust, offers dramatic views, a host of wildflowers and an undulating terrain. Just along the coast is the quaint village of Boscastle, with gift shops, local restaurants and pubs offering good food, Cornish real ales and live entertainment by local musicians, making this an ever-popular visitor destination. The sandy beaches of Bossiney and Trebarwith Strand are within a short drive, as are the surfing beaches at Bude and Polzeath. Close at hand lies Tintagel, swathed in the legend of King Arthur, as well as several stately homes and renowned gardens, or the wide open space of Bodmin Moor, famous for its granite tors and Daphne Du Maurier’s Jamaica Inn.
