We stayed at Rowan Barn for three nights in The Oak room. I couldn't fault the appearance, cleanliness and services provided by Sally & Huw, who were most helpful regarding the area and local attractions.

It was extremely close to St Ives & Penzance and other little towns that I wanted to visit.

The only downside I could mention is that a little fridge in the room would be good rather than sharing the communal fridge in the dining room. However the atmosphere, chickens roaming & Jessie the dog all added to the experience.

A very tranquil place that I would love to return to.

We had a wonderful three night stay at Rowan Barn and felt it was the best B&B we had ever stayed in. Just outside Hayle and a 20 minute drive into St Ives, it is a tranquil and picturesque environment with friendly and helpful hosts. Sally and Huw welcomed us warmly and we had an arrival complimentary coffee and cakes on the deck outside our room (the Ash.)

The room was large modern and very well appointed with that still new wood smell to the barn conversion, that made it feel like it was just for us somehow. Very light and practical bathroom and plenty of space to relax. The bed was lovely and comfortable and towels and linens were soft and spotlessly clean, with fresh towels each morning as required.

Added extras in the room were the tasty cookies with the tea tray and fresh milk available in a fridge in the kitchen breakfast room next door. We were also offered the use of the fridge for beer or wine in the evening and there was space both in the lounge area of the breakfast room and on the decking outside to enjoy a warm summer evening drink.
With their own hens and pigs on site, the breakfast was deliciously fresh and tasty. Huw's own home-made bacon and sausages were cooked just how you like them and there were cereals, fruit and lots of toast with local or home-made jams and marmalades.

Huw and Sally gave us some helpful tips for days out and provided a kind but not intrusive atmosphere that I have found lacking in some high rated and highly charged hotels. As the title of my review says, I can't give any higher praise for such a wonderful stay in the Cornish countryside.

The only slight downside is the location, either because it is hard to find or because of the track that the property is accessed from. Our car had very low clearance and struggled to navigate the stony, bumpy and quite narrow path. The car suffered no ill affects when driving cautiously, but there is a reason we saw so many locals in land rovers.

Fantastic stay and have already recommended to various friends.

Myself and my husband stayed at the Rowan barn for 1 night for our anniversary, we were met on arrival by Sally the owner who very kindly made us a pot of tea, we sat in the main barn where the dinning tables were and then walked across to our room in the main house, the room was very clean, tidy, with pine furniture and plenty of towels, TV, tea making facillites and a lovely bathroom, we had a key so could come and go as we liked. It was down a little stoney alley so without the tom tom we might have struggled to find it but it was so quiet and peaceful with only the birds singing in the morning. The Breakfasts were fantastic, we had 3 rounds of toast, full english and plenty of pots of tea, I would highly recommend this B&B if you want to get away from it all.
