  • "We had a lovely stay in this gorgeous place."

    The owners were very helpful and gave us tips on the surrounding area. We also enjoyed the hot tub which was not shared. Only we are allowed to use it. We also had the most incredible weather for the whole week. I’d recommend Caerys beach ( Porthluney) if you have a dog. It’s a lovely Lottie beach with a big car park and lovely food at the beach bar. We also loved the fish bbq in the evening.

  • "The fact that there was the use of a washing machine still listed but not available to use could have been a problem if we had been a family with children."

    Also, a full length mirror would have been nice.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback, laundry facilities are available on site, following current covid rules the facilities are available using a booking system, we are sorry if you did not notice this information on the property details. Property Owner

  • "Leghorn was such a great place to stay."

    Great location with everything in the house that you needed. Lots of baby items provided such as cot, stair gate and high chair- all great quality and really helpful not to have to think about packing this from home! Great place to stay with pets also. The owners were lovely and provided great finishing touches to make the stay perfect. Can’t wait to return!

  • "What a beautiful cottage in a fantastic location."

    Everything we needed was here and the cream tea was a lovely bonus. We definitely recommend Leghorn to everyone and are looking forward to coming back for another visit, possibly bringing more people and taking Black Rock too! The hot tub was big enough to share and was the perfect temperature. Both of our dogs had an amazing time too and having their own field to play in was the icing on the cake!

  • "I had a wonderful stay at Leghorn."

    The barn conversion is finished to an exceptionally high standard, was fully equipped, immaculately clean, comfortable, and in a stunning location. Waking up and opening the stable door and taking in the sea view was breathtaking. Easy reach of some amazing ‘hidden gem’ coves that Cornwall has to offer.

  • "The property we stayed in was lovely, the beds were extremely comfortable and the hosts Paul & Jane were most welcoming, loved the cream tea and fresh milk for a cuppa after our long journey."

    We had a sicky newborn with us and a mischievous toddler, they were most accommodating with us having to do washing and also having to entertain our little boy around their beautiful farm. Definitely would return and it's ideal location to visit most places in Cornwall.

  • "We had a great week in Leghorn, we stayed from 20th July."

    The barn is perfectly placed to see Cornwall, we enjoyed day trips to Truro, Port Issac and Newquay. The owners were extremely welcoming but respected our privacy, we didn't feel at anytime as though we were sharing a property which was really nice. The 2 fields to walk the dog on the farm had beautiful views over the bay and our dog enjoyed his early morning walk there. Par beach was great for walking the dog and was never crowded, just a 5 minute drive away. Overall we could not fault it.

  • "We all loved our week in the cottage."

    The view was amazing and a lovely way to start the day was with a cup of coffee and looking out to sea. The cottage was well equipped and comfortable, the dressing gowns were a nice touch. The kitchen provided everything which was needed. The cottage is in a great location and we never travelled far but saw some beautiful beaches and lovely towns such as Fowey and Charlestown. The Eden Project was a great day out too. We all have come home relaxed and refreshed after our fabulous break, which has been helped by the incredible weather.

  • "I would not normally write a negative review."

    However , after giving the owner an opportunity to financially compensate us for the lack of facilities- and being offered £15- I decided to. Upon arrival at the cottage we were told that the hot tub would not be ready until the next evening. We were incredibly disappointed as it was only a 2 night stay and we had only booked this particular cottage owing to it having the hot tub. We had taken our children kayaking and had promised them an evening in the tub. In addition to this the hot tub is housed in a roofed, dark, musty stone outhouse .

  • "Fantastic location with beautiful seaviews from the cottage."

    We had a really lovely break staying at leghorn cottage, it was home from home with everything you could possibily need and more! The cottage was furnished and decorated to a very high standard, we didnt want to leave! There was a cream tea waiting for us on arrival which was a lovely touch and Paul and Jane were very welcoming and full of information with regards to sightseeing. We would definitely Recommend this cottage to family and friends and cannot wait to stay again in the near future!

About the location


Charlestown 2 miles; Carlyon Bay 3 miles; Mevagissey 6 miles; Fowey 8 miles.

The old market town of St Austell, just a mile or two from the south coast, is famous as the historic centre of the china clay mining industry. Today, its many beaches and its sub-tropical gardens provide plenty to see and do. The wonderful Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project are perfect for a family day out, and a little further afield Caerhays Castle provides a stunning backdrop to Porthluny Cove. On the edge of town, St Austell Brewery offers tours of the Victorian brewing equipment and a chance to sample the local beer, and for those looking for surf and sand, St Austell Bay has several beaches to choose from - Porthpean, Carlyon Bay, Pentewan, Polkerris - the last offering a variety of water-sports. As well as a small shingle beach, Charlestown, a pretty, historic port, often has wooden sailing ships in the harbour, and is popular as a film location. A little further afield are Fowey and its beautiful estuary to the east and the fishing port of Mevagissey to the west. With lots to do and something to keep the whole family entertained, St Austell is a great year-round destination.
