“Fabulous accomodation & surrounding”
Reviewed April 7, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The accommodation was fabulous, wonderfully planned & thought out interior, spacious, well appointed rooms. Kitchen suitably equipped with everything you could want. We stayed in a party of 9 and a dog, we never felt cramped at any point.

The grounds were great - plenty of room for children & dogs alike, the lake is clean (our dog decided that a daily swim was good - luckily being clean water he didn't smell after!!)

Geese, peahens, peacock all making daily appearances. Peacock/Peahens very friendly venturing close to door for hand feeding - BE WARNED though - they are beautiful to look at but messy!!!

Our weather wasn't the best - gale force winds in place, but the accommodation was warm and cosy - especially with the log fire burning in the front room/conservatory.

Not the easiest of places to find first off - would suggest a sign put near the Hendra Farm so that you know you are on the right road.

Ken the owner is a lovely gentleman, nothing was too much for him, always happy to pop down to answer questions and to chat. The house fuse tripped on the Sunday morning and he came along to sort it all out within minutes and with a smile.

This house is truly magnificent. Spacious, well equipped with beautiful views. The resident peacock family helped make our stay perfect! The owner was a great guy.

“You MUST stay here- unforgettable!”

This place is incredible! The moment you arrive it has the wow the factor.

Ken has done an amazing job on the house, it is the right mix of modern and character. He has bad most of the furniture himself and its just fantastic. The views are undescribable, wonderful to wake up to!

It was immaculate upon arrival with clean towels in every room.

I am lucky enough to have 8 friends who organised and paid for all of this for me as a surprise hen do, and I was not disappointed! Ken had kindly let them decorate the house and even joined in a sambuca with us.

Ken made himself available for us and nothing was too much trouble. He got us more towels upon request and put up a side on the top bunk bed as she was scared of falling out haha! Very friendly and approachable guy,

It is about 15 mins away from the centre of Newquay which was perfect for us.

Henry the Peacock and his pea hens were lovely to see everyday too.

The whole experiance of staying here will be unforgettable, I can def see why people are booking weddings here! Could not reccomend it enough!

(Now all it needs is a hot tub ;) )

“The most perfect place!”

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the beautiful Hendra Barn for our friend's hen party. The house is stunning, as are the views of the land and water that the barn is situated on. The location is perfect, plenty of countryside but not too far from the centre of Newquay either (15 minute drive). Ken (the owner) and his wife did everything they could to make us welcome and help us and advised us of local goings on (Steak and Ale Festival at a local pub was on during our stay and was a lovely afternoon out). The rooms are perfect in size and beautifully decorated including the biggest bunkbeds ever known in one of the rooms! None of us wanted to leave this perfect venue and all hope to return in the future. The only suggestion we have is to add a hot tub, then it'd be 110%!! Thank you so much for such a lovely weekend at Hendra Barn.

when we went to see hendra barns, it was breath taking and so right for our wedding reception and holiday and booked right away. Yes thats where we held our wedding reception and it was the most amazing day we could of ever hoped for. The weather was sunny and warm, the food was amazing by kernowforno (pizza) and the surroundings were fantastic. and it all went to plan. The owner ken evans was so helpful and was more like a friend. The barns accommidation is amazing and we took our dog who loved the open space. Its was so lovely and clean and everything you can think of is there. I can't recommend it enough and will sure be back there next year. Thanks to ken for making us feel so welcome and for all you did over our stay.
