About Anna and James Jenkin

Thank you for taking the time to look at our property! We converted The Mowey Barns in 2008. The holiday let adjoins our home, where we live with our two sons.

We are very proud of our holiday let as much time and effort has been put into making this "a home away from home", we hope you will agree!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This former cow she'd is quite simply the best holiday cottage me and my family have ever stayed in. Spacious, very clean, modern, superbly equipped and very quiet (surprisingly as it is based on a working farm). The barn is 3 miles from Helston and is very central to beaches, tiny fishing villages, Lands End and even Newquay is not far away. A credit to its owners, we would recommend this cottage as a luxury base to explore south Cornwall. Mr B.

Mowey Barns is an absolute gem. The barn is superb and everything has been carefully considered. There was not one appliance/item in any of the rooms that that had not been thought about and provided. We have been in a few barns, but this has excelled them all. Mr M.

The Mowey barns are of outstanding quality both indoors and out! They are set in a fabulous location, very peaceful and quiet, but at the same time convenient for all local amenities. Miss M.
