Well, what a lovely place to stay. Beautiful lakeside setting with extensive perfectly maintained grounds, summer room, BBQ's, toys and games, sun loungers and everything else you might need at your disposal.

The Barn is bijou but perfectly formed (ideal for the number of people it accommodates) and has everything you need. It is clean, tastefully decorated, warm and comfortable and we wanted for nothing.

You're ideally placed to explore some of the best bits of Cornwall, there are local pubs restaurants and shops nearby, stunning scenery and fabulous walking.

Leslie and Johnny are incredibly welcoming and friendly hosts. They have good local knowledge, and are a good source of local recommendations. They are very dog friendly too.

Thank you for a lovely week, we'd love to come back.

“Superb setting”

We only stayed five nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The Barn is in a superb setting and central to explore both North and South Cornwall. Lovely welcome pack and a well maintained and comfortable cottage. Wonderful grounds and evenings spent outside in the sun were just the thing after a day of walking along the extraordinary coastline. We were well looked after by Marion as Leslie and Johnny were away but we met them briefly as we left and they could not have been more friendly and welcoming. We are both tall and the only very minor thing was the hand-held shower, but it did not detract from the overall splendour of the stay.

Thank you Barbara and Ian for your lovely review. This was the first time we had not been here to greet guests so were delighted that Marion was able to step into the breach. We agree about the hand held shower and are planning to have a stand-up shower installed over the coming winter. We are pleased you had a great time and hope to see you again sometime in the future.

“Easter getaway”
Reviewed April 8, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Stayed over Easter weekend with Jonnie and Leslie. Wonderful barn and cottage with beautiful gardens and adjoining lake. Incredibly peaceful, walks on the door step and nice pubs / restaurants within walking distance. Recommend this place to anyone. The food basket on arrival was a welcomed touch too. wonderful stay - thanks for having us!

“Private, quiet, perfect for couples”
Reviewed March 30, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Leslie warmly welcomed us on arrival and showed us the barn. When we were there the weather was very poor. The barn was perfect--we had plenty of space so didn't feel penned in a room as we would at a B&B.
The barn is clean, tastefully decorated and comes with pots/pans, cutlery etc so everything's there to eat in or out.
We ate at Ben's Cornish Kitchen and Kota in the evenings; both good recommendations from Leslie.
Would definitely return if coming back to this part of Cornwall.

“Great place to hiBARNate!!”
Reviewed October 8, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Amazing 4 night getaway! The barn and surrounding gardens are just beautiful, the photos really don't do it justice. Everything we needed was provided in the barn for us, including a nice little welcome food package on our arrival. Couldn't fault the facilities, everything was spotless clean and our bedroom was like a little paradise. Leslie and Johnny were the perfect hosts, helped us when we needed (our first BBQ lesson!!) but also relaxed enough to let us come and go as we pleased. Thank you for a wonderful stay and we would definitely recommend this little gem.

“Beautiful and peaceful location”
Reviewed September 2, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The hosts are a lovely couple and made us feel most welcome. The gardens are stunning. The Barn perfect for a couple. Weather was not the best but the location made up for this. Great restaurant recommended by Leslie in Porthleaven which was a great end to our stay.
I would definately recommend this to anyone and look forward to going back !!
