Lovely, clean comfortable cottage, ideally situated in a quiet village just a short drive from lizard point and within easy reach of the whole area.
Welcoming hosts who also run the friendly local pub next door that serves great food if you are hungry after a day exploring. Couldn't fault it 10/10 from us!!
We are on day 2 of three and just finishing a delightful 'pub supper' - started with a pint of local cider and straight on to a 'trad' dinner of gammon, peas and chips. The gammon came from a pig just a ways down the road. Supper in the pub was accompanied by a pair of visiting labradors; the owners have two dogs and we brought two - all well behaved and indicative of the convivial atmosphere. Waiting for desserts - summer pudding for 2 and a dark chocolate berry meringue sundae :). We are staying in the accompanying cottage, which, like the pub has been restored. The decorations are delightfully minimal but reflect the area making the structures sound and cozy. Our cottage has an upstairs kitchen (cooker, fridge, coffee maker & good selection of utensils, plates & kitchen gear) and the bathroom down stairs has a washer/drier as well as a wall towel warmer in addition to the expected appointments). Owners are super!
Village Location.. Porkellis, Near Helston, Cornwall. The Star Inn is on the doorstep and serves good food and a selection of beers, wines & spirit. It has a small Convenience Store & Library. The Owners were very friendly and welcoming and the Pub had a great local atmosphere. Our accommodation in The Barn @ The Star Inn was first class, clean and comfortable with good facilities. The welcome pack was much appreciated. Within easy reach of Helston, The Lizard, St.Ives, Hayle, Truro etc.
We are hoping to return next year.
We had a brilliant cosy capsule Christmas at The Barn, by The Star. Great little place and a fantastic pub right next door. Andrew and Anthony are laid-back and friendly and their pub was the festive heart of the village. Highly recommend both the Barn and the pub (which has a library and a shop inside as a bonus) and the food.
