  • "A lovely comfortable cottage, we will recommend"

    Reviewed by Pamela5.0Nov 2023

  • "Lovely accommodation, warm and comfortable, extremely helpful owners."

    Greatly appreciated the Welcome Pack, even though we did not use all of the items left for us. Good location being central Cornwall. Bodmin close by for ease of shopping. Access with wheelchair not really possible given the shale chipping and small paving slaps leading to the front door. We managed because my partner was able to 'walk', albeit with much support from me.

  • "In 17 years living in Spain and returning several times a year to visit family and staying in caravans, lodges, annexes, cottages etc we have never stayed in such a clean, comfortable, warm, quiet well equipped accomodation."

    Everything was provided, a welcome basket with local produce, bread, eggs, cereal, milk, butter and biscuits. The kitchen had everything, dishwasher and tablets, washing machine, plenty of mugs and crockery and utensils, even an egg timer, candels, fuses and matches. Shower room had towels, shampoo, toothpaste even needle and thread. Everywhere was spotless and as new. The owner was very friendly and welcoming. Location was quiet and central in Cornwall making both coasts easy to reach in a reasonable time. I highly reccomend this cottage.

  • "Had a beautiful stay at Brocks Barn and had a warm welcome from the owner."

    We appreciated the lovely welcome food pack. The views were lovely, even saw bluetits and robins on the bird feeder which was visible from the sofa. Warm, comfortable and very clean accommodation that had all the facilities that you need. Great base to drive to beautiful places, especially, Polperro, Charlestown, Mevigissy and Perranporth. Would recommend Brocks Barn and definitely would return.

  • "Brocks Barn is on a very quiet lane some distance from shops so a car is essential, parking for two cars is next to the barn."

    The location is excellent as it is not far from the many attractions that Cornwall has to offer. The owner, Miss Loughlin, is very friendly and helpful. A short power cut and Miss Loughlin was over to us very quickly with candles, matches and a torch and to check we were O.K. The barn is well equipped and very clean. Although it is next to the owners house it is very private and peaceful, a very good location for a holiday.

    Large nature reserve close by. Nearest pub (The Crown in Lanlivery) is about a 40 minute walk. Advisable to book if you want to have dinner in Lostwithiel. Very hospitable hosts. Basket of essentials (bread, milk, eggs, etc.) provided on arrival. Everything was clean, tidy and in working order. Happy to recommend.

  • "Brocks Barn is not only the ideal place to stay, being fairly centrally located in Cornwall, but you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere (definitely an advantage in my opinion) even though you are minutes away from a main road."

    It is very comfortable and very well equipped even down to the brolly by the door should it be required! There is also the added extras i.e. the many birds at the bird feeder just outside, and the residents cats. Michelle is a wonderful host and we were very grateful for the goodies she left, thank you, and we would love to come and stay again.....

    Reviewed by Nadine5.0May 2022

  • "An excellent, comfortable and warm cottage."

    We enjoyed our stay very much and would happily recommend it to any of our friends. It was a quiet peaceful spot , easy to find with the excellent directions given and an added bonus of entertainment from the squirrels and birds on the feeders. The owners were available and friendly but not intrusive. We would happily have given it 5 stars but for the poor shower, a power shower really is necessary, also a towel rail not working, cooker extractor not working, no hanging space in the bedroom and a lack of few kitchen items.

    The cottage was cosy and the beds especially comfortable after a day's walking. It was very welcoming upon entry to find the heating on, radio softly playing, vase of flowers on the bookshelf plus a basket of diary, cereal and bread waiting for us to start our stay. A homely touch to show the Host cares about offering the Barn for others to stay in.

    The cottage had everything you could possibly need - spacious, light, 2 bedrooms (used single for storing luggage, etc), 2 sofas, large kitchen with appropriate equipment, detached from owner's property so a lot of privacy. It would have been nice to have a power shower but the basic electric shower was more than adequate.

    Thank you for your feedback. Sorry you were disappointed about the garden, the proeprty does not advertise a garden there is a patio area only. The property is situated in a rural hamlet where all the local roads the same. Hope this did not impact on your stay. Many thanks. Property Owner

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.
