Great house in good location
We had a great time at the barn, it's spacious and comfortable and very well thought-out. The beds are super-comfy! The living room is really quite spacious for four, and the kitchen has everything we needed, including helpful extras such as teabags, coffee and oil. The children loved meeting the family's sheep and pigs who live just next door. Gabi and Alistair were away themselves when we arrived but had made arrangements with neighbours to look after us. When they returned they came straight round to check we were OK and enjoying ourselves. They are lovely hosts - available if you need them and good to talk to. The area is the perfect mix of country seclusion with proximity to Falmouth - a 10 to 15 minute drive. We spent time at Pendennis Castle, Gylly beach, on bad weather days we went to the Maritime Museum in Falmouth and the Eden project. We went for a lovely dinner at the Pandora Inn on Gabi and Alistair''s recommendation. They have lots of useful info in the cottage about places to visit including a great little photo album with pictures of their own favourite spots. On a couple of days we had particularly heavy rain but the cottage is very cosy with stove and very comfy sofa, DVD player and room for the kids to sit around and keep themselves occupied, we didn't feel caged in at all on those days, just very relaxed and comfortable in the house. Thank you for a lovely stay.
A lovely cottage, beautifully decorated in a stunning location!
The cottage is spacious, very clean & homely and we had a wonderful time with our 2 small children. Al & Gabi were extremely helpful with recommendations of places to visit & location area information. There are lots of beautiful beaches in the area & great family activities nearby. We would thoroughly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a relaxing stay in a beautiful location!
Many thanks for your kind feedback.
Lovely property very comfortable with everything you need for a great holiday
Warm and welcoming. Everywhere lovely and clean and peaceful and relaxing surrounding . Would happily stay again
Many thanks. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and would be delighted to host you again in the future. Al and Gabi.
Peaceful location and extremely well equipped barn conversion. Modern fixtures.
Bedrooms downstairs with huge open living room with views of the countryside.
Central location made it easy to access Cornwalls north and south coasts. The owners provided local information and photos of places to visit and we hope to return as we were unable to get to Perranporth on this occasion.
Many thanks for your kind feedback. We would love to host you again in the future.

A peaceful and comfortable barn!
We enjoyed our staying in the barn. It was more than what we had expected for a holiday house. Alistair was very friendly and thoughtful to us. Thanks for providing us the stair gate! The welcome pack is very nice. My kids loved it too. Definitely recommend it!
A beautiful holiday cottage that is cared for and will make your stay in Cornwall just perfect
Alistair and Gabi are wonderful hosts of this holiday cottage. Upon arrival we experienced a lovely welcome. We were made to feel at home, and given timely and useful hints about places to visit etc, which made the holiday great. We had fresh eggs left for us from their hens as well as some local food, which emphasised the point of being located in Cornwall! The cottage is wonderfully situated so that you can easily spring off into different parts of Cornwall very easily. Our children loved visiting the cottage also and benefitted from being surrounded by countryside.
The cottage has been decorated beautifully and fitted with all the necessary modern equipment that will help you have an easy stay. The thought put into the cottage is very telling throughout and really makes this the perfect cottage break in West Cornwall. We look forward to returning again in the future.
Many thanks for your kind review. We would love to host you again. Al and Gabi.
Coast/Beach: The barn is centrally positioned half way between the north and south coasts. Falmouth on the south coast is 15 mins drive as are most of the north coast beaches. We also are located half way between Truro and Falmouth and can easily access both with a local train line and easy road links.
