It was a lovely, warm place. With a short drive to Port Isaac/Tintagel but very few nearby properties, it was just the right level of secluded.

“Absolutely adorable little cottage”
Reviewed November 2, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

I have recently had the pleasure of staying for a few days at the barn owl barn.
It is a delightful little cottage which is beautifully decorated in a charming Cornish style.
Everything that you could possibly need for your stay has been thought of.
The location is very quiet and relaxing but just a short drive from some of Cornwall's most beautiful locations such as Rock, Port Isaac, and Padstow. The local pub/restaurant is only a 10-15 minute walk away ( I can recommend the steak).
Sit in the garden at dusk and wait for the barn owl to fly from its nesting box, a wonderful sight. A perfect holiday location for couples to completely relax and chill out.

“The perfect place for a peaceful, quiet, holiday.”
Reviewed October 23, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We very much appreciated the cleanness and decor of barn owl barn. The use of the small shed was very handy. The cottage was lovely and warm. Nothing was lacking. The icing on the cake was to creep out at dusk each night and see the owl take to flight from his nest for his evening's hunting. Spectacular !

Congratulations Sandy and Ian for getting everything about Barn Owl Barn right.

Really pleased that you both had a fantastic stay and got a sighting of the barn owl. Bookings have been so popular I still have not had chance to stay at the barn myself and witness the owl. We hope you will return in the near future. All the best, Sandy x

“Beautifully presented cottage in great location”
Reviewed September 12, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Barn Owl Barn is a clean and very well equipped property. Significant attention has been paid to detail in this beautifully presented, colour coordinated cottage, with original art work adorning the walls.
The dual aspect windows in the bedroom reveal views of open fields and trees. The bed and pillows are very comfortable with soft, fresh smelling linen and towels provided. There was plenty of hot water in the en-suite shower and even hand soap and toilet paper were provided!
The patio is a lovely place to sit especially when the sun shines and ample exterior lighting is provided for late evening use.
The property is in a great location. It provides a sense of being secluded in the countryside but is very near the beaches of Polzeath and Daymer Bay (within 10 minutes drive) and easy access to the A39. A great spot for National Trust members and those that love visiting gardens. The Lost Gardens of Heligan and Trebah Garden are well worth visiting as are the coastal areas of Boscastle, Port Isaac and St. Ives. If you're willing to travel further afield St. Michael's Mount is super.
The addition of wifi which is planned for next year will be useful however, the hosts left a very comprehensive information pack detailing local attractions.
I would definitely recommend this property and hope to return at a future date.

“Relaxing”
Reviewed August 26, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Just spent a lovely, relaxing week at Barn Owl Barn.

The cottage is close to Rock and the coast so ideal for exploring the area. Padstow is about 15 mins away in the car.

The property is ideal for a couple as there is just one bedroom with an ensuite. It has been thoughtfully refurbished and decorated. No direct neighbours so very quiet & peaceful with a lovely patio area to sit outside.

Would definitely recommend and would return ourselves when visiting Cornwall again.

“The perfect place to stay in Cornwall!”
Reviewed August 4, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Barn Owl Barn is by far one of the nicest, cosiest, relaxing places we've ever stayed at. If you are heading towards Cornwall for a break, then this is the place to go to!

The owners Sandy and Ian were lovely and very welcoming, if you had any problems at all, they were there to help.

The location is stunning, with all the peace and tranquillity you could ask for, whilst only being 10 minutes away from the town centre and local pub. The size of the property is just perfect for 2 people, but can quite happily accommodate more. The garden is amazing and sitting back looking over the fields, well, you can't beat it!

Definitely recommend this property and would like to return ourselves one day too!
