“Memorable stay, wonderful accommodation in a beautiful location.”
Reviewed September 22, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

First of all, the hospitality from Rick and Chris sets this accommodation apart. Their welcome and concern for your well being is second to none. They gave us excellent advice on beaches, places to eat and to visit. The surrounding area is fascinating with a stark beauty at times that lets you discover its hidden gems. I have to say that the beaches are outstanding. Some of the very best we have visited. Even at my middle aged years I was tempted to use the body board again that Rick offered and loved it.
The accommodation has been lovingly put together, with wonderful personal touches. We particularly appreciated the beach bag with everything you needed folreadyr the day. We used it on two of our three days. The barn is cosy and comfortable. We enjoyed preparing meals, sitting outside and barbecuing in the barn's amazing private garden.
We look forward to another visit and are already planning for next year.
Thanks so much Rick and Chris. Hope to see you soon.

“A gem of a place, defintely one to return to - again and again”
Reviewed August 10, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I can't praise Crugkern Barn or Rick and Chris enough. The barn has everything you need, no beach pebble left unturned! Right from booking, Rick was in contact to ensure our stay was as memorable as it could be. My husband and I are vegans, "provisions" were adapted to meet our dietary needs - the most scrummy home made bread, lovely local jam from "The Gull at the Gate" and Chris had been busy making us flapjacks for our arrival, a really kind gesture. I was celebrating my birthday while we holidayed and travelled to Carbis Bay to eat at The Bean Inn (even if you're not vegetarian or vegan, check it out). Rick had popped in to say "Happy Birthday" and handed me a card and cakes that Chris had made. I was so touched. Lovely people with such personal attention to detail, such natural hosts. We were lucky enough to get to Sennen beach for body boarding on two of the days and took a short walk to St Just for entertainment in the evenings. Thank you Rick and Chris for your hospitality, we will certainly be back.

“Quiet and comfortable in a beautiful location”
Reviewed July 21, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Crugkern is a compact modernised barn expertly converted into holiday accommodation for two people. My wife and I loved staying here, as despite its compact dimensions, it has everything we needed and even better, it is situated in the most beautiful location not far from St Just in Penwith, near the coast (1.2 miles) & with a very attractive aspect. Located in the owners well tended gardens, it is both luxurious and comfortable and everything a holiday maker could wish for has been thought about and provided. The kitchen area is fully equipped, modern & easy to keep clean so self catering is made simple. The shower room is spacious and the sleeping area is cunningly arranged so that despite the small dimensions there is plenty of storage room for your clothes. Radio and TV/DVD are provided, but we never switched them on! We were so tired from walking and exploring on the Cornish coast and countryside we had no need for any other distractions. We were able to send a few emails while staying in the barn as good Wifi is provided. The afore mentioned gardens are extensive and are visited by a large number of garden birds. For anyone interested in wildlife, particularly those who like bird watching, this place is a paradise. Small details like the welcome pack consisting of tea, coffee, milk, bread, butter and local cheese were really appreciated too.
Finally mention must be made of the owners, Rick & Chris, who are the brains behind this tiny but perfectly formed miracle. We received a warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble, added to which Rick is a mine of local information about St Just and the best kept local secrets to visit, so we would not hesitate to recommend the barn to any one (or two) ! .

Chris and I are really pleased that you enjoyed your time here and that you were blessed with good weather. The good thing about the compact nature of the barn with its thick, granite walls is that it is cosy and warm in cold weather, but remains cool in the heat of summer. Always comfortable to return to after a hard day on the coast path, or hot day on the beach. Glad you enjoyed the birds. The bullfinches were on the feeders again this morning, and all in all the birds and their young are getting through the feed in industrial quantities! I'm pleased that you got the opportunity to visit some of the out-of-the-way places we have discovered, and it was great that I was able to join you in the Star for the Irish music session on the Monday night. Always a good do, and a nice way to round off your week.

“Perfect in every way!”
Reviewed July 15, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Crugkern Barn is beautifully compact with everything we required and great attention to detail. We loved the addition of Chris' artwork too and although close to the owners' home, the barn and garden are not overlooked at all. A Lovely warm welcome from Rick, including homemade bread and local cheese! The location was perfect, secluded and surrounded by amazing countryside but within walking distance of Saint Just and a short drive to the Minack Theatre. A very luxurious and relaxing weekend break - just wish we could have stayed for longer! Will certainly recommend it to friends and family.

Chris and I are delighted that you enjoyed your stay here Katherine and, as you say, we are blessed by having a string of great places within easy striking distance whether on foot or by car. Summer has really arrived here now and it is the season of swimming, surfing, seals and dolphin watching. Hope to see you again and, needless to say, we will make sure that any friends and familly make the most of what Crugkern Barn can offer.

“Fantastic getaway”
Reviewed June 14, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Crugkern cottage itself is beautifully furnished and very comfortable; it felt like home straight away. On top of that, the grounds are huge, stunning and almost as lovely as the owners, Chris and Rick. It's the perfect getaway.

I'm glad it felt like a home from home. As for the gardens, I'm just in the middle of planting out all the lovely plants I acquired at the recent Royal Cornwall Show. I'm a bit of a sucker when it comes to offers! If the rabbits don't get them first it could look quite stunning this year. Hope to see you again soon.

“Hidden Gem !!”
Reviewed June 14, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Tucked away in a peaceful location, yet only a short drive to some fantastic places to visit, Crugkern Barn is a hidden gem. The barn is equipped for the perfect stay, with thoughtful touches throughout. From the fresh bread, local yarg and butter on arrival, to the local walking route maps and prepared daysack, Rick and Chris have thought of everything you could possibly need and nothing is ever to much trouble.
We had a fabulous stay at Crugkern, and it was made all the more special by Rick & Chris. It was like staying with friends. They are so thoughtful. Never intrusive, they will be as much or as little a part of your stay as you choose. We enjoyed every bit of their company, and it was a pleasure getting to know them over a glass or two of fizz !!
We can't recommend Crugkern Barn highly enough. Rick & Chris have made this the perfect little bolthole and without any doubt at all, we will be back in the not too distant future. Thank you Rick and Chris.

First of all, thank you for your kind words Andy, and secondly, thank you both for your company. The opportunity to share a glass or two on a summer's evening with you and hear about your days adventures was a delight. It is always a pleasure to help our guests make the most of both the barn and this fabulous area. The stunning weather helped too. I'm glad the maps and daysack came in handy. Do come again, we'd love to see you. Sorry, got to go, I can smell the latest batch of bread baking for our next arrivals.
