“Beautifully converted barn with warm welcome”
Reviewed April 14, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We had a lovely break with our four kids Age 14/12/7/4. They loved the big light space upstairs and the barn is really cosy especially with the wood-burning stove. Very clean. Lovely showers.
Really enjoyed Mawgan Porth beach which is a 5 minute drive away and the older boys did surfing lessons there. We also liked Newquay Zoo where you can return as many times as you want in the week. Another highlight was the sunset on Fistral beach after sampling cod and chips in the Rick Stein restaurant there!

“Beautiful barn and friendly welcome!”
Reviewed April 3, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed for three nights in this beautiful barn conversion. We were made to feel really welcome by Ann and family and settled in straight away. The barn was so cosy and really was our home away from home. The barn is situated in a great position for seeing Cornwall although, because of the position of the farm, a car is required. We would all highly recommend this beautiful barn as a great place to stay. Thanks Ann!

“Fantastic stay in a great location”
Reviewed February 25, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We had a lovely time in Mowhay Barn. We were a group of 4 adults and 2 young children who had never visited Cornwall before. It was a 20min walk to Watergate Bay which had a stunning beach, even on a wet February day! Newquay and Padstow are both close by. The barn is beautiful, well decorated, modern and had a real cosy feel. We loved the wood burner! The owners were very welcoming and accommodating and our children loved visiting the new born lambs on the farm. Please do not be put off by the nearby airport, we did not get disturbed by this. Thank you for a great weekend.

“Lovely holiday cottage immaculately well kept”
Reviewed February 6, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We received a very happy, jolly welcome to lovely large cottage near Watergate bay. This Dr down cottage perfect for the 6 people that stayed here for the weekend. (3 adults and three children aged 12/11/4) there was plenty of space with a beautiful log burner that kept us warm each evening. We particularly liked seeing the sheep being fed just outside our window in the morning. The beach is just 5 minutes down the road and Newsday is just 15 minutes away with plenty to do. We will definitely be recommending this place to our friends and family as well as making future bookings for our family. Thanks Ann

Couldn't of asked for more from our weekend stay at Mowhay Barn, friendly and warm welcome from Ann upon arrival. The barn and accommodation was clean, comfortable and cosy with ample amount of space for a party of 7. Would highly recommend this fantastic little barn to anyone that is looking to for weekend away with friends or families! Already planning our next stay.

“Lovely barn conversion with everything you need and in a great location”
Reviewed November 16, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Travelling as a party of six this homely rental gave us the space we needed and a comfortable weekend stay.
Easy to find and close to lots of attractions.
Ann and her family have put a lot of thought and care into developing this rental.
We wouldn't hesitate to come back.
