We arrived at the barn to a really warm welcome from the owners Johnny and Leslie. The barn was immaculately clean and well equipped and we even had use of a paddock to walk the dogs. The owners had thought of everything - from an arrival pack of jams,bread,juice and biscuits to freshly picked flowers from the glorious gardens, as well as beautifully comfortable beds with lovely bed linen and a range of towels. Johnny and Leslie continued to make our holiday extra special with suggestions of places to visit, great company and really warm hospitality. There were many fantastic places to visit in the area, however, coming back to the barn was always the best part of the day, with gorgeous gardens, a lake to look at and new friends to share our days experiences with.

“Perfect cottage”
Reviewed April 2, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Just returned from a 4 night Easter break at tresowes green barn. The barn is a really nice cottage, it is very tasteful and comfortable, the linen, towels and everything in the cottage is good quality.
The bathroom has just been refitted and was really nice, everything was clean and fresh.
The bedroom looks over a pretty little lake, location was great, really peaceful but close to praa sands and nearby towns of helston and Penzance.
Owners live next door and were very welcoming and helpful, will definitely recommend to friends and family!

“A peaceful, tranquil corner of Cornwall”

We count ourselves fortunate to have had 2 wonderful weeks in Cornwall staying at Tresowes Green Cottage in the 'Barn' - a compact but well appointed cottage with everything we needed. On the cooler evenings we had instant and plentiful warmth from the heating system, and with the added warmth of our hosts nearby, were well served.
The setting is wonderful; space in expansive lawns and an adjoining lake, intimacy in small patios and a sun house. We enjoyed miles of excellent walking, both on the coast nearby and throughout the adjoining countryside. There is so much to see and do within just a few miles, 2 weeks was not enough, so we will return - quite honestly, we loved it!

We have already recommended Tresowes Green Barn to our neighbours and friends, both for the excellant location and the hospitality of Leslie and Johnny who made us feel so welcome.
The accomodation although appearing small was very comfortable and enjoyable, the extra touches by the owners only increased the enjoyment of our stay, and the whole barn was very well equipped including an excellant welcome pack. The only small complaint would be the lack of a shower but this was easily outweighed by the pleasant location overlooking the lake.
Although the accomodation is pet friendly it was very clean and tidy (i.e. not covered in dog hairs smelling of damp dog)!.

“Perfect location for a peaceful break”
Reviewed November 4, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

The barn is cosy and right next to the lake. It was lovely getting up in the morning and feed the carp! Johnny and Lesley are perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome. They live on site and are always happy to help. (We borrowed one of their waterproof jacket as my partner had forgotten to pack one!) The location is ideal for exploring this most beautiful part of Cornwall.
