  • "If you are after a very clean and quiet place to relax and enjoy the nature then this is the ideal cottage."

    You get everything you need to enjoy a nice stay and the place is cozy and comfortable. Sarah is a brilliant owner and will ensure you have a pleasant experience. Well done.

  • "Our host was lovely and helped with suggestions of places of interest."

    The Hayloft was like home from home, very tidy and clean and tastefully decorated. We unfortunately had a leave a bit earlier because of family issues. I would most definitely recommend and return myself. 10/10 stars!

  • "Lovely place to stay, spacious and well equipped, with great view over the meadow."

    Would not work without a car though, and a lot of hills in all directions! Helpful but unobtrusive host.

  • "Wonderful location, well appointed and perfectly furnished - and the most perfect hosts."

    Had everything that we needed for a comfortable stay - and everything worked! Very comfortable and the welcome from the hosts was most considerate. On a very wet week walking SWCP from Cremyll to Portloe, it was great to be able to come back for a hot shower and be able to relax and recover in comfort before the next day's efforts.

    ! From the moment you walk through the front door we felt so at home!! Such a lovely gesture was the cream tea that was waiting for us after such a long drive!! Cornwall was as lovely as it always is but the Hayloft made it all the more special and romantic with the log burner!! Will be coming back again early in 2023 and will definitely stay here again!! Thank you so much Frank & Michelle x

    Sarah was wonderful and laid out an anniversary tea for us, so special. The view across the meadow was gorgeous, saw the pheasants, buzzards and a fox appeared. Cannot wait to return.

  • "I’ve already recommended The Hayloft to a friend, I was that impressed with it."

    A beautiful barn conversion, hidden away in the hills of Lostwithiel, and I mean hidden. My husband and I wished we’d had more time to enjoy the barn - we only really ate our breakfasts there as we were out all day with our family, who live locally. The Hayloft had everything we needed for a stress free stay, and with a comfortable bed, a spotless bathroom and a well equipped kitchen, we wanted for nothing and hope to visit again one day. Sarah was a delight and very approachable and her cream tea was probably my favourite of our holiday - and I managed to eat 5 in a week!!!!!!

    The location for travel out makes it very easy to get to a good range of places in a 30 minute drive.

  • "This is a lovely cottage, very comfortable, and in a great location for exploring Cornwall."

    The owners are very welcoming, and nice touches were the cream tea on arrival and fresh flowers throughout. There is plenty to do within a short drive of both the north and south coasts, NT properties close by plus Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan. Lostwithiel is a short walk away with great pubs, cafes and local shops. Highly recommended.

  • "The Hayloft was even better than I'd hoped for and Sarah and Richard couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful."

    It's in peaceful and open surroundings while being a short distance from Lostwithiel and within easy reach of the many attractions of the region. I would certainly stay there again as there was so much I didn't get to see.

  • "The Hayloft is a little gem."

    Set in a peaceful location and very well equipped, what set it apart for us was the attention to detail - delicious home-made cream tea waiting for us on arrival, fresh flowers in the rooms and eco-friendly products provided. Sarah was the perfect host, friendly and informative without being at all intrusive. A fly past by one of the resident barn owls one evening was the high point of our stay!

  • "Warm, cosy, comfortable ."

    Good bed. Some nice extra touches. Great place to stay, never felt overshadowed by the property next door (The Mill). Superb surroundings, lots of really good walks. Asquith restaurants better service than on TripAdvisor. Lostwhithiel deli still a must for us. Our hosts where nearby, always on hand but never intrusive Rain or shine I recommend staying here.

    Only downside is the check in time of 5 pm on the day of arrival- with such a small property seems an excessive amount of time to turn it around with a 10 am departure time.

  • "The Hayloft was a wonderful retreat from the problems of the past year plus."

    It was comfortable and well equipped and our hosts Sarah and Richard were welcoming and attentive without being intrusive. Sarah’s scones were delicious with Cornish cream and jam. The location is ideal for visits to both north and south coasts but beware your Satnav at times, NB the Crown Inn and Bedruthan Steps. Apart from our 10 hour journey home (s/b 4-5) a fabulous holiday. Chris and Joan

  • "The Hayloft is wonderful, and the owners, Sarah and Richard, are really friendly and accommodating - while at the same time leaving guests to their own devices."

    The property itself is neatly laid out, comfortable, well maintained, and well equipped. It really is a home from home! Access is via a long private drive and parking is easy (being adjacent to the property). We loved the splendid isolation and being surrounded by the tranquil countryside - while being within a short drive of both the north and south coasts. This meant we were really spoiled for choice as far as things to do and places to visit are concerned. We had days out at Lanydrock, Looe, Fowey, Tintagel, St Ives (by train) and not forgetting Lostwithiel which is on the doorstep and is definitely worth exploring - as well as being good for daily provisions and eateries. I never give a place 10/10 as usually there is always room for improvement. However, I can't think of any reason to give the Hayloft anything but a 10! If there was ever a perfect model for a self-catering experience, then this is it. Thanks Sarah and Richard. Your passion and hard work have really paid off. Best wishes, Steve & Anne

The Hayloft And The Mill

Loswithiel 1.4 miles. Nestled on the outskirts of the bustling town of Lostwithiel, in the Cornish countryside, are these superb, environmentally-conscious barn conversions. Resting close to the owner's farmhouse and 20 solar panels,you are well-placed for touring some of Cornwall's finest sites, including its expansive coastline. Though The Hayloft is a first-floor apartment, it has no ground floor, so you won't be disrupted by noisy neighbours and can simply enjoy this peaceful and tranquil setting. Both these properties offer spacious sitting rooms where you can look forward to relaxing and unwinding into the evening, catching up with your favourite shows, whilst the warming woodburning stove provides that extra bit of warmth during those chillier winter months. They both also offer environmentally-friendly products bought in bulk to avoid excess packaging. Discover well-equipped fitted kitchens with plenty of worktop space to prepare your meals, whilst the dining areas provide space for gatherings. Each property offers a king-size double bedroom with quality contemporary furniture for storage purposes and delightful views across the fields to wake up to each morning. Pets are allowed at The Mill due to the enclosed garden, but the owners have asked guests of The Hayloft not to bring a pet with them. Discover plenty of fields surrounding the property, ideal for dog owners to go exploring with their furry companions, leading you towards the centre of Lostwithiel, which was the medieval stannary capital of Cornwall, for its selection of traditional pubs and restaurants for that fine dining experience, as well as a choice of shops and supermarkets for picking up those last-minute essentials or enjoying a shopping spree. Travel towards the 13th century Restormel Castle, set on a romantic hilltop with far-reaching views and areas for enjoying a picnic. Discover the nearby Lost Gardens of Heligan where you can tour the breath-taking gardens and estate, also nearby is the National Trust property of Lanhydrock, dating back to the 19th century with a historic interior and surrounded by a scenic parkland. You are in reach of the beautiful and expansive coastline for accessing a number of sandy beaches for those days' sunbathing on the golden sands, swimming in the clear waters or taking the opportunity to get involved with Cornwall's favourite pastime of surfing! Or avoid traffic and take a leisurley train ride from Lostwithiel to iconic Cornish towns like Penzance, Truro and St Ives. A truly delightful base for exploring all this stunning area of Cornwall has to offer.

About the location


  • Bodmin 5.5 miles
  • Fowey 7 miles

A delightfully peaceful country town, nestling in the Fowey river valley amid the woods and fields that characterise the area. Renowned as a centre for the antiques trade, there are several shops and dealers in the town, as well as a fine collection of country pubs, restaurants and a thriving farmer’s market. Lanhydrock House (NT) and gardens is just 3 miles away, while the fabulous Boconnoc House, Eden Project, shipwreck museum and tall ships harbour at Charlestown, and the picturesque fishing villages of Mevagissey, Fowey and Padstow, with the famous Rick Stein restaurants, are all within easy driving distance. The tumbling Atlantic surf, long sandy beaches and dramatic coastline of the north coast, including at the renowned Newquay, make for great days out and there is also chance to enjoy river canoeing, biking, hiking and leisurely walks in this lovely area. The friendly locals also have ongoing activities, such as the raft race, the famous tug of war, Carnival week and seagull outboard motor races. The river Fowey runs from the town on its 8 mile journey through the fields and wooded valleys to the gentler southern coast, a natural paradise for those who love the sea. Centrally placed, with much to do and see in the immediate area, Lostwithiel is the perfect choice for those seeking a break away from the hectic pace of the tourist resorts.
