  • "Everything we needed for a good break, some nice touches , like the charging lead for mobile phone."

    Hosts on hand if needed but very unobtrusive.

  • "Delightful location with all the facilities you could wish for."

    Most impressed by how clean & polished everything was when we arrived - if only all cottages and hotels were as good! The cottage was perfectly located to act as a base for an area of Cornwall that we had missed out in our previous visits. We thoroughly enjoyed a peaceful week at Barn Cottage. It might be worth warning the arthritic/unfit (like me) that if you are tall and if you have difficultly getting up and down, you might find the sofa and chairs rather low - but this should be no problem for most people!

    Fantastic place. Hosts Karen & Barry are exceptional. Couldn't want for anything. Highly recommended as a central base for exploring both the coasts and moors.

  • "Had a wonderful time at Barn Cottage, the owners Karen and Barry were extremely welcoming and helpful."

    The cottage is very clean and well presented and is in a lovely quiet area but it was easy to travel to any other place we wanted to see. We hope to return one day.

    Fixed a problem with the dvd player straight away. Beautiful garden setting. We enjoyed watching the trains, and a very friendly cat visited frequently.

  • "We had a great stay in Barn cottage."

    The cottage is very clean, well stocked with kitchen utensils and fluffy towels - all the extras that make a trip away better. Due to its location it’s very dark and quiet at night so good for sleeping, but close enough to the A38 so that the attractions of Cornwall are within easy reach.

  • "Barn Cottage is in a lovely location."

    Peaceful and quiet, except for the occasional train on the nearby line. Karen and Barry made us feel at home, and were helpful with information on nearby facilities and places to visit. The cottage is well laid out and decorated beautifully. It was great to sit outside with a coffee and see the view over the adjacent meadow. The farmyard and railway memorabilia in the courtyard gives a nice rural touch to the surroundings. The cottage is located in central Cornwall with easy access to the coastal region north or south via the nearby A38 and A30. Highly recommended.

    Owners were friendly but not intrusive! The wine and milk were a lovely touch as were the 3 friendly cats. We used the cottage as a base to explore what Cornwall had to offer and we really enjoyed our week :) we can't wait to come back!

  • "A great little conversion in a well designed and attractive courtyard to the rear of the owners property, it’s quiet, warm and comfortable."

    I felt perfectly safe there on my own. The owners are very friendly and welcoming and they went out of their way to ensure I got the best out of my stay, Barn cottage is brilliantly located for easy access to the whole of Cornwall and I would recommend this cottage and would go back myself. The directions provided were very accurate and I found the property really easily. I did notice the trains but I think that’s because I live in the country and am not used to the noise, it wasn’t intrusive. A brilliant little cottage that’s just a perfect retreat after a busy day sight seeing.

    The owners have thought of everything, from wine and milk on arrival, to tin foil and cling film in the cupboard. Great value .
