wonderful location and wonderful hosts with easy access to both north and south coast beaches
Although we were not blessed with the same lovely weather experienced throughout the rest of this summer we thought this location was perfect to be able to explore Cornwall. It really is only 15 minutes to either the surfing beaches on the north coast or the beautiful quiet bays on the south coast.
The cottage itself is lovely and there is plenty of room to sit an relax whilst the hosts made us so welcome and were available if we had any queries without being intrusive at all.
As this was our first visit to Cornwall we feel we have unfinished business with so much more to see and do and will certainly be back and would love to stay here at the Barn again when we return!!
Many thanks for your lovely feedback. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and wish you all the best with your year ahead.
Handy location for either coast
We have stayed here multiple times because it has a mix of spacious rooms, a quiet location and is well equipped. The bath is the best after a long day sightseeing, bodyboarding or walking and the beds are comfy too. Nice spot to look out over the fields and also for coast to coast bike trail.
Many thanks for your kind feedback. We'd love to host you again. Have a great year. Al and Gabi.
Beautiful and Tranquil
Fernleigh Barn was the perfect base for our explorations of Cornwall this summer. The cottage itself is a real delight - beautifully furnished to feel light and airy but cosy and friendly at the same time! It is well equipped, making it a proper 'home from home' and our hosts, Alastair & Gabi provided a really thoughtful welcome (we particularly valued the photo album full of personal recommendations of places to visit). We genuinely have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending this property.
Many thanks for you kind and constructive feedback. We would be delighted to host you again. Thank you for time in providing us wit this feedback.
Fabulous Fernleigh Barn
We had a wonderful weeks stay at the charming Fernleigh Barn, the cottage is set in such beautiful surroundings, it was a perfect rural idyll.
The cottage itself was welcoming and so comfortable, we couldn’t have wished for more.
Alaistair and Gabi were so lovely and helpful, we will definitely be coming back for another stay in the future.
Many thanks for your kind feedback. We would be delighted to host you again.
Al and Gabi.
Great location, warm and welcoming home.
Beautifully modernised this really is the most perfect cottage, we were so sorry to leave. Excellent quality furnishings and equipment, everything in the kitchen you could ask for, all in matching sets. So quiet, yet very convenient for Truro and all that area of Cornwall and the Blissoe bike hire is less than 5 minutes walk down the lane. Will suit a family of 4, 2 couples or just one couple wanting plenty of space! Our hosts were there if we needed them but their house and the cottage are completely private. We will be returning soon. There is nothing we could improve.
Many thanks for your very kind feedback. We strive to make this feel like a home we would want to live in ourselves. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and would love to host you again in the future.
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.
