    Very well equipped and furnished and set up for a great holiday. The owners have paid real attention to detail and are on-site and helpful if needed but respect guest's privacy too. Great location, particularly for the north coast beaches from Godrevy to St Agnes all within 30mins or less. Even the Lizard is less than 60mins away.

    Many thanks for your feedback. It was a pleasure to welcome you all to the Barn last week! Thank you for choosing us and for your efforts to hand back the property in a clean and tidy condition. We really appreciate guests who have the courtesy to respect our property in this way. Thank you so much! Property Owner

    There is everything you would need in the barn, it is very well equipped. Lovely and clean and very friendly owners. I liked the fact that both bathrooms and kitchen had cleaning products available, this is very handy as I've stayed in other barns without these, and had to purchase myself. The barn is not far from many lovely places to visit, beaches and activities too, but also a lovely peaceful place to return and relax in. I would recommend this, as we will definitely return here. Thank you to Ju and Pete for a wonderful holiday base.

    Thank you, Kellie, for your delightful feedback! We decided to provide cleaning materials so that our guests can comfortably clean after their stay as most are courteous enough to do. I am so pleased you appreciated this provision! There is nothing worse than discovering someone's scum in the shower or male urine drips on the toilet pan, let alone messy hob top and greasy grill pan!!! Thank you for leaving the property so clean and tidy. It was much appreciated. You will be most welcome to return! Property Owner

    The barn was extremely comfortable, clean and welcoming. Ju and Pete made us feel at home and were always very friendly but not intrusive in any way. The cottage was very well equipped and we found nothing lacking. The cream tea and milk in the fridge was a lovely start to our holiday. The Barn is in a quiet location with fields to walk and explore at your leisure, if you want peace and comfort this is the cottage for you. The location is perfect with St Ives, The Lizard, Falmouth, St Just and Godrevy beach all within easy distance. We cannot fault the cottage with all its facilities, the location and Pete and Ju for the opportunity to share their wonderful part of Cornwall.

    Many thanks, John, for your super feedback. It was a pleasure to welcome you here! I should also like to thank both you and Wendy for leaving the Barn in such a clean and tidy condition. Thankfully, many guests show that same courtesy but nevertheless, it is a delight to see on a Saturday morning. Thank you! Have a great summer. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay at Mynheer Farm Barn."

    The barn was exceptionally clean, fully equipped and in a very quiet location overlooking fields.. The village of Vogue is a 10 minute walk away where there is a pub with outdoor seating and the town of Redruth is a 5 minute drive away with a train station enabling you to access much of Cornwall without a car. Although the barn is inland it is actually in a great location for accessing many of the main towns in Cornwall. We drove to St. Ives in 30 minutes, Newquay in 30 minutes, Penzance in 30 minutes, Padstow in 50 minutes and Looe in 1 hour and 10 minutes. It is a 15 minute drive to the nearest stretch of coast. Ju and Pete who own the barn were lovely, considerate and very helpful hosts and they really enhanced our stay at the barn. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome - a few examples being, Pete's lovely homemade scones on our arrival with jam and cornish cream, providing towels for us when we went to the beach as we had forgotten to bring any, lending us a detailed book on coastal walks when we told them that is what we planned to do on a couple of days.) We would highly recommend a stay at the barn and keep telling our friends and family that if they go to Cornwall the barn is the place to stay. We too hope to return one day!!

    Thank you, Sandra, for such positive feedback. We enjoyed meeting you all and are delighted to hear how much you enjoyed your holiday. We look forward to welcoming you and your family back one day! Property Owner

    The cottage is immaculate. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. We have a 1 and 3 year old so somewhere spacious for them to play was important, the property was the perfect size for us. We flew a kites on the field beside the property along with monster hunting with torches on the evening. The cottage is situated in a perfect position to go to both South and North sides of Cornwalls coast. Each direction is around 20-30mis away. Local shops are a 2 minute drive away and they have everything there. There are 2 local pubs that serve lunch and evening meals. We have stayed in many cottages now and think this one is our favourite.

The property

Boasting an idyllic countryside setting on a former dairy farm, Mynheer Farm Barn offers guests a truly peaceful and memorable stay.

Just 15 minutes drive from the north Cornish coast with its long sandy beaches and scenic coastal walks, the location is perfect for those seeking a quiet holiday close to the coastal hot spots but far enough away to escape the crowds - with only the property owners and guests of a second holiday barn for neighbours.

Step into this smart converted barn and feel instantly at home; the cosy sitting room with wood burner and dining area makes for a most sociable space.

A chic, pastel-coloured kitchen offers everything you could possibly need during your stay, and upstairs, two comfortable en-suite bedrooms offer flexible accommodation for couples or friends.
