Stayed in B and B suite for 3 nights - very comfortable and good breakfasts, with a lot of variety. The separate lounge was a nice touch! Owners very nice and friendly. Had a great few days despite chilly wind and look forward to going back in the future

Glad you enjoyed your stay, the new breakfast room /lounge for the B&B Suite is proving very popular for those who like a bit of privacy during their stay. Hope to see you both again, perhaps when the weather has warmed up! More

An excellent location for a peaceful and relaxing holiday. The cottages are perfect, spotlessly clean and homely with good quality furnishings. Thank you Barbara and Mark for making us feel so welcome.

I stayed for 3 days in late Feb/early March in Cockle Cottage. It was wonderful, finished to a high standard, beautifully located, well equipped, spotless and welcoming! The location is superb - near wonderful beaches, scenic views, National Trust venues and pretty towns/villages. The Roseland is an unspoilt area of Cornwall and well worth a visit. This is an amazing... More

Thank - you Keith for those kind words, we are really glad you enjoyed your stay in Cockle Cottage. We love this area as it is one of the quieter parts of Cornwall but you are only an hour or so from St Ives, Lands End, etc, Falmouth, Padstow and the Eden Project are even closer.

My wife and I stayed here back in August. The first week in the self-catering 'Cockle Cottage' and the final three days in the B&B part of the barns. Mark & Barbara were the most welcoming and helpful proprietors. The first week we spent there we were treated to the most amazing get-away in Cockle Cottage. Quiet, secluded and spacious.... More

I cannot over stress the importance of these reviews with people keep coming back to Roundhouse Barn Holidays you may think the owners would eventually drop the ball!

We spent a wonderful weekend at the B&B of the Roundhouse Barns and I only wish it was longer - we could have stayed for a fortnight! Barbara and Mark are such warm and welcoming hosts (ably assisted by 2 lovely dogs) who made us feel instantly at home with scones and tea on arrival and plenty of advice on... More

We spend a day in the B and B of the Roundhouse Barn and it was absolutely wonderful. Barbara, Mark and the dogs were great hosts and made us feel right at home.

4th visit and as always felt like we were arriving home. Such a wonderful welcome by Barbara and Mark, Barney and Pongo. We stayed in the B&B for a week and needless to day left a few kilos heavier, but totally relaxed and rejuvenated. Nothing too much trouble and lots of laughs. Rooms remain of a very high and comfortable... More

When you have a beautiful building in a beautiful area that already has a strong tourist pull, you could be forgiven for putting your feet up and just letting things flow themselves. But Barbara and Mark have taken the very opposite approach and it made our trip an absolute joy. From the first moment we walked through the door we... More
