  • "The barn was literally a home from home for us."

    It is a spacious, well furnished and equipped cottage. The WiFi was excellent, good sized TV and a fabulous wood burner. All information was provided about the appliances and we cooked regularly with ease. Pete and Ju, the owners, were extremely accommodating. We will be returning to this wonderful place soon.

  • "Our second visit to Mynheer farm and every bit a fantastic as before."

    The barn is just lovely. Not a spec of dust, crumb on the floor or hair in the bathroom. The place was again spotlessly clean. You couldn’t ask for better owners in Ju and Pete who go out of their way to ensure you’re comfortable. A lovely couple who are really easy to talk too and make a real effort with guests. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need and the cream tea on arrival is a lovely touch along with the pint of milk and fresh flowers on the table. The barn itself is just amazing and the 6 acres of fields for the kids to play in really does add something too. Private, secure off street parking. A real home from home. Waking up to the view of the fields every morning....magic. Would recommend in a heartbeat (and have already done so to Friends)

    The property was beyond what we were expecting, it was clean and very well equipped. Although the owners are next door, we were given complete privacy and if we needed anything all we had to do was call!! We had access to the fields surrounding the property and nothing was off limits. I highly recommend the barn for your break away, and am already looking to book for next year. Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday home.

    Cottage is in a great rural location to go off and explore gorgeous Cornwall. It was really clean with everything we needed for our week away. We did have an issue with the fridge but the owners sorted a temporary one out for us while we were there and the cream tea on arrival was a lovely touch.

    Kids loved to play in the fields next to the house. If I was being picky I would say the sofas was uncomfortable. Other than that lovely place to set up camp.

  • "A lovely cottage in a peaceful and perfect central location for exploring Cornwall."

    The view from the main bedroom was very pleasant with glass from the floor to the top. The view overlooked the c. 5 acres of farm land. Ju & Pete were really friendly and accommodating and nothing was too much trouble for them. We used some of their additional storage to securely store our bicycles and they also provided additional freezer space due to the pandemic to avoid us having to shop as frequently. Their was a rotary washing line and a separate cleaning area with full tap, Belfast sink and cleaning equipment. It was perfect for cleaning the wet suits and sandy body boards! The location is perfect for visiting a number of locations and these are some of the places within 30-45 minutes travelling distance. Perranporth, St Ives, Gwithian (great for surfing/body boarding with a large car park), Eden Project, Mousehole, Land's End, Lizard Point (great for a nice walk), Mullion Cove and Porthleven (great for watching the tide come in when it's stormy), Portreath, Porthtowan, Falmouth, Bodmin (great for cycling) and Truro (great for shopping on a rainy day). Thanks for a lovely holiday Ju and Pete and very best wishes for your charity rally!

  • "Mynheer Farm Barn is a wonderful place to stay and comes highly recommended."

    From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble for the owners Ju and Pete, and the delicious cream tea was appreciated!. With the current COVID 19 situation, we were unsure what to expect, but the barn was immaculately kept and we had no concerns regarding its cleanliness. The location was ideal for visiting all that Cornwall has to offer and our two children, aged 14 and 11 made good use of the owners three fields, with lots of evenings spent playing games in them. The barn itself has everything that you could need, and really is home from home. The beautiful view from the master bedroom was delightful and we can't wait to visit again.

    Mynheer Farm did however, prove to be a cut above the rest and that was in part to our excellent hosts Ju and Peter. It is simply a lovely place in which to stay and suited our family of three admirably. It is excellently furnished, very comfortable beds and a really lovely kitchen and lounge. We were sad to leave on Saturday, but very much hope to pay Mynheer Farm a further visit before too long. A fabulous part of Cornwall to explore as well.

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.

Outside, a sheltered patio provides a lovely spot for morning breakfasts – and guests are also welcome to explore the five and a half acres of field next to the property, where they will find a shared picnic area with wonderful panoramic views.

The area surrounding Mynheer Farm Barn is steeped in mining history, and offers some fantastic walks through the engine house ruins.

A number of cycle routes can be accessed from the front door, too.

Take a stroll down to the village pub of an evening, and be sure to visit the open-air amphitheatre made famous by John Wesley at Gwennap Pit.
