“The Barns”

person found this review helpful

Well what can i say ? This is the first time I’m gonna write a review for something, lets just say I was really happy and impress thats the reason why im writing this review.

PROS
• Location of the accomodation was really good. Very near to local attractions and places to visit in Cornwall.
Few minutes drive away from a local supermarket (Why cook enjoy the weather outside and eat some cornish pastries!!!)
• Upon booking James or her wife will send you a confirmation e-mail with the inventory and guide how to reach the property
• They will ask what time you expecting to be there because the owner will welcome you, show you around the accomodation and hand you the keys (we kinda arrive late at night and the owner was still welcomed us with a smile even though you can see that he was really tired and sleepy)
• Theres a stream of river at the back. Thats very calming and table outside so you can eat out enjoy the weather and fresh breeze of cornwall air or lets say cornish weather.
• The price of the accomodation is reasonable considering the location and how nice the accomodation looks like and the equipment provided.
• Parking is easy aswell actually you can park like 4 massive lorries there without a problem their land is so huge

CONS
• The checking out time was a bit to early for me need to vacate the accomodation before 10:00 or will ended up loosing your deposit.
• Put some locks on the window maybe so we can open the window a bit for some cold air to go in without worrying about our safety becuase you can widely open the windows and someone can fit in there to go in while
your asleep. (This is Cornwall not London crime rate is not as bad or next to nothing really but it will still be good for security conscious person like me)

PS: Next time give me discount James. Only kidding. Thanks again for letting us stay in your wonderful accomodation!!

Thank you for your kind review. We do departure at 10am because arrival is from 2pm, it allows us to get all the Barns cleaned in this time.
The widows do lock on 2 trickle opening settings, but yes it’s much safer here than London.
I’m glad you enjoyed your stay, I look forward to your next visit.

“Loved the location”

Loved our stay at this converted piggery!! James was very helpful with our additional needs and details about the local community.

Needs to look at the final touches on arrival.

“Quiet accomodation in the middle of Cornwall”
Reviewed July 10, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Friendly reception to a clean and well equiped holiday home in a rural setting.
Little shop at the corner of the road. Ideal situated to discover Cornwall.

“Convenient location”
Reviewed September 28, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The accommodation was very clean but there was no chest of drawers in the bedroom which did have room for one and could do with a bin also. In the bathroom the sink was very small we just about managed with it but the shower was good. This is a good location for touring round Cornwall. We did not receive our fifty pounds damage deposit for ten days after we left, when it could have been sent to us much quicker (how long does it take to check a cottage)? The details in the cottage said if we were not out by 10am it would be kept, which we thought was aggressive and not necessary. Overall a peaceful location for a short stay.

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay.
I will address deposits through Trip Advisor/ Holiday lettings, I do not personally receive the deposit, therefore I cannot forward this directly.
I do agree it is a little slow but it is out of my hands, literally.
We do work on a very short turnover schedule with limited Staff, my wife & I, therefore we are reliant on guests leaving on time. We have had instances where guests leave after this causing issues for us.
I would like to invite you to stay with us again, come direct, a deposit will not be taken as you have been before.

“Good location, comfortable accomodation and friendly helpfull host.”
Reviewed September 25, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We had a pleasant 3 night stay and this appartment suited our needs exactly to visit this part of the North Coast of Cornwall. My wife spotted a kingfisher in the stream right outside which was an added bonus! We would be happy to visit again.

“Excellent Self Catering”
Reviewed August 26, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Exactly as described. A quiet, clean and very comfortable self catering base for exploring West Cornwall starting with the charming Portreath just a couple of miles down the road. Many thanks to James and his parents for such a warm welcome. We hope to return as soon as we can! :-)
