  • "The chest of drawers in one of the first floor bedrooms wouldn’t open and the knobs were loose."

    The bolt to lock the bathroom door was broken. In the main loft room there was the front off of one drawer, the knob off of another, filthy carpets, a pair of someone’s pants clearly visible next to a set of drawers, someone’s makeup next to the dresser, and some packaging from someone’s poncho under the foldout bed. That to me says the most that was done in that room was the bedding was changed (hopefully). Generally cleanliness was pretty non existent and disappointing. There were cobwebs everywhere that clearly had been there for quite some time. We stayed in this cottage last year and we didn't experience this. I would say this needs addressing fast... cleaners have let you down massively.

    Dear Michelle I am so sorry for your experience this year. Thank you for telling us about it. We will certainly take up with our cleaning contractor. I do hope you had a good holiday apart from these issues. Best wishes Peter Property Owner

The property

Barn Cottage is a delightful converted granite barn within the grounds of Kenegie Manor Holiday Park.

Set over three floors and sleeping 10, Barn Cottage is great for family get togethers.

Enjoying on-site swimming pool and other leisure facilities, plus easy access to Cornwall’s coastal delights and attractions, Barn Cottage makes an idyllic base for a group retreat to this wonderful area.

Park up at the foot of the path leading to the courtyard, from which three steps take you to this wonderful stone-built abode to begin your staycation.

In the living area you can relax in the comfortable sofas, enjoy the flame-effect electric fire and 43” smart TV, and move to the dining table and chairs for your meals.

Double patio doors give you access the rear patio and lawned area.

Extending from the living area, the well-equipped kitchen is beautifully appointed with traditional wooden worktops and houses all of the essentials to ensure an enjoyable stay.

The nearby dining table provides a lovely spot to gather together and indulge in your culinary delights.

Also on the ground floor you will find a twin bedroom and the stair case to the first floor.

Here there are: another twin bedroom; the spacious family bathroom with rolltop bath and full size shower; and a sumptuous double bedroom which benefits from its own ensuite facilities.

A second staircase leads you to the loft room with its sloped ceilings running the full width of the property.

Here there is a double bed, two singles, a sofa and an ensuite shower room.

It’s ideal for both families and friends sharing.

Take advantage of the fantastic range of facilities resting on your doorstep, where you can make a splash with a dip in the pool, challenge the little ones to a game of tennis, test your swing on the putting green or simply unwind at the end of another day of adventure with a crisp pint and a bite to eat in the Old Forge Restaurant.

For a wider choice, venture into the heart of Penzance, renowned as West Cornwall’s biggest foodie hotspot, where you can choose from street food, gastropubs and elegant restaurants to name but a few.

While you’re in the area, be sure to pack your bucket and spade and head to the glorious sands of the beach, where you can dip your toes in the waters as the soft waves wash into the shores, lounge with a good book, or feel the sand between your toes with a stroll along the coast towards Marazion.

If you’d prefer to stay on land, lace up your walking boots and embark on an adventure along the South West Coast Path as it passes through the town, travelling as far west as Lands End, or simply watch the world go by with a view of St Michaels Mount at Penzance harbour.

Indulge in a spot of Cornish afternoon tea with a visit to the quaint tearoom at the National Trust’s Trengwainton Gardens, beautifully adorned with walled gardens, winding woodland paths and a peaceful orchard, or explore the manicured grounds of the Grade II listed Nancealverne House.

An unforgettable Cornish adventure awaits you with a stay at Barn Cottage. .

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £450.

About the location


St Ives 8 miles. Helicopter to Isles of Scilly - 30 minutes

Penzance hosts Golowan, the Midsummer Carnival, and The Literary Festival. There are also The Exchange, Newlyn and Penlee Art Galleries. One of Cornwall’s most popular holiday areas is the spectacular sweep of Mount’s Bay, from the cliffside fishing village of Mousehole through Penzance and around to beautiful Marazion, the coastline hides a wealth of sandy beaches, rocky coves as well as winding village streets and other places to visit and explore. Connected by a causeway to the shore at Marazion is the National Trust’s stunningly beautiful St Michael’s Mount with its hilltop castle and Mediterranean gardens. Walk across at low water and take one of the ferry boats back when the tide is up. Penzance with its winding streets, shops, clubs, restaurants and harbour is a must as it is the jumping-off point for day trips to the Isles of Scilly as well as being the harbor. The South West Coast Path passing through Penzance winds its way along the clifftops towards Land’s End. On the way, stop off for a coffee and a rest at beautiful Lamorna Cove, explore the open air Minack Theatre and marvel at the cliffs as you approach Gwennap Head. A stunning walk for those seeking solitude, exercise and some of the UK’s best coastal scenery. Penzance is the perfect holiday base. Ideally placed for exploring this land of Celtic myth and legend and with enough to do and see in the immediate area to keep all the family occupied.
