“A perfect home from home!”
Reviewed August 25, 2011 for a stay in August 2011

We stayed at the barn with our three small children (6, 4, and 2) and it was perfect for us. It's a short way from the A30 and in a convenient location in between the two coastlines - ideal for sightseeing and day trips. It's in an absolutely gorgeous location on the farm, and the kids loved using the climbing frame/slide/swing and saying hello to the cows every day. It's off the beaten track, so it's wonderfully quiet and very scenic.

The rooms are actually larger than they seem in the photos, particularly the bedrooms. The kids slept in two twin beds and a ready bed on the floor (that we brought with us), and there was more than enough room for all of them, even with the ready bed on the floor. The king-sized bed in our room was comfortable, and the bathroom was deceptively large as well (with a fantastic, long tub!) Even with all 5 of us in one cottage, we never felt like we were on top of each other. The rooms are all nicely finished and decorated, and the cottage was spotless when we arrived.

The cottage is very well equipped; we really didn't need to bring or buy anything for it other than our food and drink. I loved the plate of scones, jam, and clotted cream in the fridge waiting for us when we arrived - such a nice touch. The hot tub is just amazing (the kids loved having their own "pool") and a real treat after a long day.

Ideally, we'd prefer to have a fully enclosed garden (the fencing only goes along one side, between the studio and the rest of the barn) to keep the kids contained. Otherwise, we have no complaints and would very happily stay here again. Sarah and John were great hosts and made us feel very welcome.

“Great place to visit Cornwall!”
Reviewed June 21, 2011 for a stay in April 2011

We had a wonderfull time staying in the barn cottage: great view from the living-room, great furniture and decoration! Moreover Sarah welcomed us very warmly with local cakes and has thought about everything we may need during our stay. If we come back to Cornwall, we will definitely go back to Kerriers Barn!

“If you're going to Cornwall, you must stay here”
Reviewed December 11, 2010 for a stay in November 2010

We visited the barn as a family of 4 adults for a week in November and had a fantastic holiday. The barn has everything you need and is a real home-from home. The location for us was just right, very secluded and peaceful but just a 3 minute drive to the main A30 for accessing all that Cornwall has to offer.

We really couldn't fault the property at all, and owner Sarah was very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. There is so much to mention, but the real highlights for us were complete 5* luxury with underfloor heating throughout, the hot tub (a real treat, even in the winter), a beautiful spacious bathroom and the location right in the middle of Cornwall.

We will definitely be going back to Kerriers next year. Thanks to Sarah and John for a really great stay.

“Absolutely what we were looking for!”
Reviewed September 28, 2010 for a stay in September 2010

person found this review helpful

We were looking to escape London for some relaxation and luckily stumbled upon Kerrier’s using trip advisor. It was exactly what we were looking for.

Kerrier’s was in a perfect location for us. Within driving distance of local townships and tourist attractions, yet removed enough to enjoy the peace and quiet of the Cornwall countryside.

The barn itself is completely removed from the main house in which the owning family resides, however is connected to the studio apartment. There was another couple in the adjoining studio during our stay however we never noticed them.

Everything you could require for you holiday was provided. There was nothing better than returning to the barn at the end of the day and sinking into the hot tub with a glass of wine!

Thank you to Sarah and John for providing such a fabulous place to holiday! We definitely hope to stay with you next time we are in Cornwall.
