  • "Turning into the driveway and seeing the house and garden is amazing and perfect for our four legged friend."

    House decor and equipment to a very high standard but some crockery was dirty we found but nothing a quick wash and dry wouldn’t sort. Hot tub is a bonus but not sure about the wood fired option and would prefer a normal Hot Tub as it was a bit of a chore to get up to temperature and not sure about the hygiene side of these. Disappointed with BBQ again not a gas one for convenience and was in fact left rather unclean which put us off using totally throughout the holiday… this is constructive criticism and didn’t spoil anything about our stay to be honest. We really enjoyed the house and the garden along with our Buzzards and other wildlife and would strongly recommend if you need a holiday with your pet.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback, we take all comments seriously and I am sorry that a couple of items didn't come up to our usual high standard. We are pleased to hear that enjoyed your stay with us and hope that you will return in the future Property Owner

  • "We had such a great time!"

    Our whole group(age ranges from 11-73) we're almost starstruck when we approached the house down the long drive, the grounds are way bigger than we thought, perfect for sporty kids or for a spot of twitching, there were a couple of Buzzards flying around and perching on the fence! The inside was even better, the pictures just don't do it justice! Perfect for a summer getaway or off season celebration with family and friends.

  • "Another perfect property from sykes the house was absolutely spotless and beautiful inside and out."

    The owners Stephen and Annette where so helpful also and such a lovely couple . Our children and dog absolutely loved having so much land to run around on. The house is in a great location and has a lovely local pub restaurant near by that serves amazing food. We would definitely recommend the barn and sykes cottages. Mr & Mrs kirk

  • "Had a lovely holiday the accommodation is very spacious comfortable and well equipped."

    The local pub provides takeaway meals which we took advantage of their Sunday Dinner option it was a lovely sunny day so we ate in the garden. Kids loved the huge garden brilliant for ball games and our Black Lab loved getting involved and fetching the ball. Hot tub was a bonus on the odd day it rained will definitely book again for future visits to Cornwall

  • "Just returned home after a wonderful (albeit wet) week at The Barn."

    Stunning place, beautifully furnished and tastefully decorated. Every need was catered for plus extras like the welcome hamper which included a water bowl and blanket for our dogs, plus treats - as well as tasty treats for the humans! Beautiful (huge) garden which our dogs loved - will come back in the summer next time so we can enjoy sitting outside. Location is great - not too far from any of the beautiful places Cornwall is famous for. Local pub in Sticker is dog friendly, very welcoming and walkable. Will definitely stay there again!

The property

The Barn is a truly special holiday home, combining contemporary style with a beautiful countryside location, it brings you the best of a Cornish cottage.

Quintessentially Cornish stone ground floor and rendered first floor, this exquisite-looking cottage is perfect for an escape with friends and family to the rural village of Sticker, with plenty of amenities and attractions within close reach.

Enter through the electric gates and down the private driveway and marvel at the wonder of this impressive property; step into the oak porch, taking a seat to take off your shoes, and head into the social hub of the house, the open-plan living space.

Boasting a wonderfully-equipped kitchen with an adjoining utility hosting even more appliances, you'll be sure to whip up a celebratory meal in no time, the table with sheepskin adorned benches provide a perfect hub to serve all your home-cooked meals.

At the end of the room is a snug, with a plush sofa inviting you to sit down and unwind in front of the television, the dual-aspect woodburning stove gives a visual preview to the main sitting area, with plenty of seating for everyone to relax into their evening surrounded by character exposed stone and a beautifully eclectic well thought-out interior.

For those who wish to admire the view over the extensive gardens and take in the country air there is a large slate canopied outdoor area with huge wicker upholstered corner seating group.

On the first floor rest the four bedrooms, the master being a super-king-size with its own TV, en-suite shower room and even a dressing room, offering everything you could need and more for a truly wonderful stay, while the remaining bedrooms consist of a super-king-size with TV, a king-size and a double, all boasting their own quirky interior and benefiting from the use of the beautiful family bathroom.

Spend mornings together out in the garden, with the manicured lawns being the perfect place for your canine companions to play safely, you can take your pick from multiple spots to sit and enjoy your morning coffee.

The local village of Sticker is wonderfully positioned for exploring the best of Cornwall, while also benefiting from its own amenities such as a Post Office, shop and an award-winning pub, so everything needed for a self-catered stay is just a short stroll away.

A short drive can bring you to some of the best attractions in Cornwall, such as The Lost Gardens of Heligan home to 19th century Gardenesque style botanical gardens, with woodland, wildlife and farm areas to explore, or for even more natural wonder venture to the Eden Project, its two biomes with a wide variety of plants from diverse climates and environments, it makes a fantastic day out for all.

Explore Charlestown with its Tall Ships Harbour, making a beautiful family photo opportunity, while Mevagissey offers ferry tips over to Fowey where you can find a River Gallery, historical landmarks to explore and even more beautiful scenery.

Spend a day on the sands of Pentewan Beach for that all-important quality family time, or choose to kick back and relax at your perfect holiday property, The Barn.
