  • "We have stayed here three times now."

    We love the cosy, compact barn which is well equipped with parking and has friendly but not intrusive owners. There are lots of places nearby to visit and Charlestown itself has a lovely vibe. Would thoroughly recommend nearby National Trust Lanhydrock.

  • "Hideaway barn was such a lovely place to stay with Nicky and Pete being the perfect hosts!"

    Nothing was too much trouble and they were on hand for advice when needed. The barn was very well equipped, immaculately clean and comfortable with modern appliances and plenty of hot water. The only downside was the single beds that were very noisy and somewhat uncomfortable but this didn’t detract from a wonderful holiday!

    Our apologies that you did not find the single bed comfortable, we were available to review at the time. The comment ref noisy beds is not understood - this is a first !!. We shall look into this further. Thank you for your other positive comments and we would welcome your return stay with us. Property Owner

    Absolutely love the place and surrounding areas, places to visit etc. Hideaway barn is by far our favourite place we’ve stayed so far. It’s everything you need, just off of the main road so very peaceful but just a very short walk, few minutes to the pubs and restaurants, especially The Rashleigh Arms which has become a family favourite. Would definitely book again, very clean, well decorated, charming place to stay and the owners are very friendly. No negatives I can think of

    Beautiful Charlestown with its beach, harbour (with Poldark Ships), restaurants, coffee shop and the wonderful Rashleigh Arms Pub. Also a park for the children. You don't need to go anywhere! Though Mevagissey and Pentewan Sands are a 10 minute drive, and a walk to Carlyon Bay across the cliff path is recommended. The Cottage is beautiful and of an extremely high standard. This was our third visit and we hope to go back next year. Peter and Nichola are also really lovely.

  • "An absolutely wonderful holiday."

    It was very straightforward to organise and directions to the property were very clear. The owners were there to greet us and show us round and there were lovely scones and clotted cream to welcome us; milk in the fridge and supplies of tea and coffee too. The accommodation was superb, beautifully and tastefully presented with everything you could possibly need. The bed was very comfortable the shower was nice and powerful and the WiFi was very reliable. The outside seating was a bonus ,especially on sunny mornings for breakfast. Parking on-site was easy. It was in a secluded place off the main street but only an easy 5 minute walk to the harbour with a wide choice of eateries. The was good access to the local buses and onward to the train station at St Austell. Many places can be reached using the local services and the Coastal Path is a matter of minutes away. The hosts were very welcoming and friendly and had some good suggestions for visits - the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are ‘must see’ trips. Occasional visits from Mollie the cat were very welcome. We would not hesitate to return there when possible as there is much more to see and do and would highly recommend Hideaway Barn.
