Reviewed July 1, 2010

Stayed for two nights in the Fal B&B room at Roundhouse barn. What a find! Everything was just perfect. Room very comfortable with luxurious "White Company" bedsheets, towels, toiletries etc. Breakfast was lovely and Mark & Barbara were the perfect hosts. Our stay here was brief as we were in Cornwall for a wedding but definitely aiming to come back and have a longer and relaxing stay at Roundhouse.

Off the road to St Mawes, near the river Fal, Roundhouse Barns has to be the BEST B&B we have stayed at in the UK. Little wonder they have 5 star awards for their B&B and for their SC. Barbara and Mark have created 2 beautiful, contemporary B&B rooms with luxurious showers and 3 simply divine, luxurious SC flats.
The welcome on arrival is like meeting up with your best friend, and their warm and caring hospitality is second to none. They recommend and book venues for evening meals, and go the extra mile to ensure your stay is relaxing, comfortable and pleasurable.
Breakfasts are a sumptuous affair with specials every day of the week, alongside cereals, fresh fruits, yoghurt, stewed fruit and a vast selection of cooked breakfast - supporting local produce.
We loved it so much, we did something we have never done before, booked to return next year!! We had both B&B rooms as our daughter joined us and she too simply loved being at Roundhouse Barns and cannot wait to return.
You cannot go wrong at this first class establishment. Well done and Thank You Barbara and Mark, your hard work truly deserves applauding.

This is a beautiful rural setting with carefully restored buildings and rooms that are completely modern and upscale inside. The hosts are friendly and gracious, and excellent cooks as well as providing easy maps and directions to nearby restaurants/pubs. Vegetables, fruits and herbs are grown in carefully tended gardens. A plus is that a 15 minute walk takes you to one of the major embarkation points for American troops on D-Day, on a small lane that was paved for the tanks. It is a setting both English in its beauty and tranquility and steeped in American history. Top recommendation for this bed and breakfast.

The Roundhouse Barn has only two B&B rooms and two more self-catering units. We stayed in the B&B. The room and its bathroom were very comfortable and well appointed, and spotlessly clean. The location is quiet and rural, between the King Harry Ferry and St Mawes town. Breakfasts were as good as you could find in the best hotel. What we will remember, though, is the warm and enthusiastic service of our hosts, Barbara and Mark. We felt like family guests, and very welcome ones at that. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We could not recommend the Roundhouse Barn more highly.

Having stayed in one of the Roundhouse Barn B&B rooms in July to attend a nearby wedding, I had immediately booked to return later in the year with my husband for our anniversary, and the second visit was better still.

Mark & Barbara have created a true 'home away from home'; it's cosy, comfortable and the welcome is warm and friendly. During this stay, we had more time to explore the local area as well as venture a bit further afield, and their recommendations of places to visit, walking routes to try and (most importantly!) pubs for drinner were excellent.

Aside from the beautiful location, charming hosts and wonderful breakfasts, what sets the Roundhouse Barn apart is Mark & Barbara's attention to detail. Complimentary mineral water and fruit juices in the room fridge, fresh milk and biccies, top quality ingredients for breakfast and books, DVDs and an iPod dock for a relaxing evening in your room.

Roundhouse Barn is an absolute gem in a beautiful part of Cornwall, and huge thanks to Mark, Barbara, Barney & Pongo for our fabulous weekend there!
