“First class comfortable retreat”
Reviewed December 13, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Andrew and Anthony are very welcoming and friendly hosts.This beautiful retreat set in the countryside. A peaceful and perfect place we recommend highly to everyone. We will definitely re-visit. Thank you Andrew and Anthony for getting up so early the day we got there. It was so nice getting there and it was warm and nice inside, and the local bread, butter and eggs was excellent.

“Clean, safe and cosy.”
Reviewed October 27, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

The barn was clean, safe and cosy. It was also in the perfect location. Anthony and Andrew were both welcoming and accommodating. Having arrived late on Thursday night there was a lovely welcome bundle for us consisting of bread, butter etc. My partner also left some belongings behind which they happily posted back to us. It was a wonderful mini break.

“Cosy and comfortable”
Reviewed October 7, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Anthony and Andrew made us very welcome, the Barn was well above our expectations, everything was just right, even down to the welcome pack, the local bread was wonderful and the cornish butter was so lush, we even had " Nespresso" coffee, how good was that !
We were recommended to stay there by my nephew, who has just moved from the midlands, to live down the road, and as we will be visiting him, guess where we will be booking ? Highly recommend, and its easy to get to all the sights - the Minnack theatre is a must see. And as they have the Star inn, which is only 5 steps away, cannot ask for anymore. Thank you chaps.

“Top quality accommodation”

We recently spent a very enjoyable week at the barn. It was beautifully clean, well appointed with everything you could need for an very comfortable and relaxing stay. The welcome pack of quality bread,butter,eggs and milk was really nice touch and there was tea and coffee provided as well. The new owners are extremely friendly and welcoming and nothing seems too much trouble. They went out of their way to make it a memorable stay and we shall certainly be back to see how their ambitious plans for the pub as a focus for the community develop.
