  • “Sykes holiday cottages, where very efficeint in the whole process, but sadly the Little Barn was not quite up to scratch.”


    fridge was not particularly clean, cottage require decoration in areas, garden needs clearing as overgrown and gate required, kitchen could do with proper oven, rather than combi microwave. Could not use fixed BBQ as it has shrubs growing around it and grill was exstremly rusty. Information book, could have more local info, restraints and local attractions. No mobile signal, which can be a positive. The worst issue was smell of damp in downstairs bathroom and bedroom,. so we needed to leave extractor on all time to improve smell. This smell was here all 7 days of our stay, which would prevent us staying here again. The positives of the property are private parking, the Little Barn is remote, in very small hamlet, so very quiet and peaceful. Only 20 minutes from Looe or Polperro and ferry for Fowey.If you want to walk to a bar there is a bar in a the Deer Park, around 1 mile away, but take torch if walking at night. No light pollution, os great for night sky. Bed comfortable and interior furniture very quaint, with stylish fittings. Wi Fi very efficient, which is good as no mobile signal. all in all, with a bit of TLC and the damp being sorted, this could be a fantastic property.

About the property

Small but perfectly formed, this detached stone barn conversion is close to the stunning Riviera coastline.

With reverse level accommodation, the interior is well designed and distinctive and outside you have a well stocked and mature garden with patio area.

The ground floor open plan living room has a subtle arty style with a plump leather settee, beautiful wooden furniture, a statement rug, scatter cushions, thick warm throws and tasteful decorative items.

The kitchenette has all the essential equipment to cook delicious produce from the local farm shop.

Head downstairs to a gorgeous bedroom with a king size bed, the best quality bed linens, a sleek en-suite shower room and a door to the garden.

You can sit on the patio in the shade of trees with a glass of red at hand and fire up the barbecue as the sun goes down over the valley.

Bordering Deer Park and Herodsfoot Forest, The Little Barn feels deeply rural but the seaside town of Looe and the old world charm of Polperro are just a fifteen minute drive.

A diverse and unique place, guests can walk (with dog in tow) along the stunning coast path and discover endless beaches or wander through the forest wonderland, located within minutes.

For a refined dining atmosphere head into Looe which has a busy fishing port, a reputation for the freshest seafood and ample restaurants serving world-class cuisine.

Spend time exploring the town with its galleries, old inns, cafes, individual shops and the beach which permits dogs year round.

Hop on a pleasure boat to Polperro or continue farther to the exclusive waterfront town of Fowey.

An intimate space, The Little Barn is perfect for walkers, honeymooners and nature lovers.
