    It is very thoughtfully equipped and decorated. We enjoyed the peacefulness of the property and the possibility of watching many different birds visiting the ownersˋ garden. We definitely recommend and would book again.

    The welcome package was very appreciated - a lovely touch. We have a medium sized car which we were able to turn in the driveway fine, however an estate car might need to reverse in/out, but it's not far !

    The scones, cream & jam as well as treats for the dogs was a lovely touch. The barn is very comfortable making it home from home. Everything has been thought about. Lovely little lawn area for sitting outside and for the dogs to relax. Please don't be put off by the previous reviews of the narrow lane, this was not a problem at all and we have a big car. We would definitely book Little Orchard barn again. We had a lovely stay. Ali & Nick

  • "Little Orchard Barn was a vey lucky find and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there."

    It is one of the two best cottages we have stayed in. We received a very warm welcome along with some tasty treats. The cottage is comfortable, very well equipped and thoughtful touches make it feel very homely. Please don’t be put off by previous negative comments regarding narrow lane to access the property. It is a very short distance which we managed very well in our Honda CRV, which is not a small car and with due care we were able to drive in, turn round and drive out again with confidence. There is a lot to do in the surrounding area and the shops are close by. Do come and stay at Little Orchard Barn you won’t be disappointed. Many thanks to the owners

  • "We had a wonderful stay."

    Everything was perfect. The property is very close to St Austell and if you’re feeling active then a 35 min or so walk to the beach down quite a wild path. We loved the touch of scones, clotted cream and jam and our dogs loved their dog treats. Other really nice touches were fresh flowers and great kitchen utensils, even a cafetière. It was a very peaceful and perfect stay. My dogs are small and one has a disc hernia, so we bought our dog steps along with us for the step in and used the other for the pretty courtyard garden. We are looking forward to hopefully coming back at a future date. Thank you.

  • "Hi. The property was well maintained, very clean and comfortable."

    The welcome pack was a nice touch. The property was handily placed for visiting local places of interest. The only downside was the access, the property is in a very narrow lane right at the end with no turning point. If you had a small car, you could perhaps reverse through the gates of the property. I have a 4x4 which deemed it not viable, which meant I had to reverse down the lane (150yds) each time I went out, with around 6 inches to spare each side of the car, so not easy, and not ideal, but that aside a very enjoyable holiday

    The scones and jam, milk and t-bags that we found on arrival were a very welcoming touch. The cottage was spotlessly clean and the bed was extremely conformable. A very enjoyable stay.

  • "We had a wonderful break."

    The accomodation was clean, fresh and peaceful. My only minor concern was no cooker. I would have preferred a cooker to a dishwasher. There was a microwave that was easy enough to use and 2 induction burners. However it was a perfect place to stay, some beautiful beaches near by only a short drive. It was lovely to arrive and find some treats for us and our dogs ☆☆☆

  • "We had a lovely week at Little Orchard Barn."

    It is difficult to find, and I agree with previous comments that access for a large vehicle would be very difficult. The property was very clean and comfortable, albeit a little bit more compact than we had expected but this wasn’t a problem. The smoke alarm in the kitchen was very sensitive! We enjoyed seeing the garden wildlife and hearing the owls at night. We’d certainly stay there again and thank the owners for making our holiday enjoyable.

    Unexpected, but appreciated. Although the listing states that there is a steep step into the property, I think it needs to be made clear how steep, especially if its someone not so mobile. The step is hidden by the door so you can't judge from the picture. I did experience some difficulty getting up the step. A hand hold would have made life easier, just something to grab onto to. Other than that I had a great stay and the facilities were exceptional, very clean and well stocked.

The property

This charming, single-storey cottage, Little Orchard Barn, is nestled amongst the countryside in Tregorrick near St Austell, Cornwall.

A blissful base for a romantic getaway, Little Orchard Barn is a short drive away from many of Cornwall's coastal sights, including the nearby Porthpean Beach.

Upon arrival, you will be pleased to find off-road parking, so you can swiftly move your luggage inside, before getting your break started!

Make yourself at home in the living/dining room, where a stylish grey sofa offers a seat in front of the TV, so you can cuddle up with your partner whilst enjoying a captivating movie.

Continue to the kitchen, where you can find the essentials needed to make delicious meals for you and your loved one.

When sleep calls, progress through the lovely abode to find a well-presented double bedroom, a space not only featuring calming hues of blue, but offering handy hanging space for your things.

The shower room can be found next door, continuing the blue, coastal theme and providing you with a refreshing shower at the end of the day.

St Austell and the local area are home to a plethora of things to see and do, from the stunning beaches nearby and the gorgeous Pinetum Gardens to the unique experiences of Cornwall Football Golf and the St Austell Brewery tours; be sure to also venture a little further out of town to experience the famed Eden Project attraction and the Lost Gardens of Heligan!

If you're looking for more outings by the coast, Pentewan isn't far and is home to a picture-postcard beach which enjoys access to the Pentewan Sailing Club and Cornwall Watersports where you can hire Kayaks, Paddle Boards and other watersports equipment.

Even more fun awaits at Megavissey, a fishing port that boasts a museum showcasing local history, a selection of restaurants and shops and walks along the Megavissey Harbour Wall.

Discover the delights of the South West Coast Path, which is easily accessible from nearby Charlestown or Pentewan, or venture cross-country to Newquay, the UK's surfing hub; or maybe you'd prefer to spend some time inland in Bodmin and Truro?

With so much to see and do, Little Orchard Barn is the ultimate base for a memorable break for you and your partner!

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
