Guests are welcome to explore the farm (Soil Association registered) with its rare breeds, free range chickens, vegetable garden and acres of broadleaf woodland planted with 3000 English trees. Run according to conservation and ecological principles, the farm is a participant in the RSPB Farmers' Alliance and a dedicated sanctuary and conservation area for rare birds and other wildlife.

Barn Cottage has two entrances with large granite steps and off-road parking for two vehicles.

The property features large larch and oak timbers and steel tensioned roof structures, an open-plan kitchen and dining room (8m x 4m) with all new appliances (ceramic hob, cooker, hood, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge freezer). The lounge area has a large sofa, armchairs and large futon. There are separate feature pine staircases leading to each of the upstairs bedrooms – one twin, one double. Each bedroom has bedside tables with lamps, wardrobe and chest of drawers. Downstairs is a twin bedroom with its own hallway entrance and shower room.

Furniture throughout is of very high quality with solid wood items including handcrafted oak tables and mahogany chests. The main bathroom features a handmade stained glass window. Heating is provided by three radiators and two wood burning stoves with complimentary basket of wood. Extra wood is available for purchase, as are organic eggs and vegetables.

The owners are artists and goldsmiths. Guests may visit their workshops by arrangement and free of charge. Tuition classes are available by prior arrangement. Half day courses in organic vegetable growing are also available to guests as are yoga classes (either single classes or a series as part of a health retreat feature during your holiday.)

The West Country region

There's so much to do, see and explore in Cornwall. With the longest stretch of continuous coastline in Britain, you’ll discover tiny fishing villages, smuggler’s coves, countless spectacular beaches and sweeping bays, dramatic cliffs and coastlines, plus beautiful moorland and countryside. Perfect for surfers, walkers, bird watchers, honeymooners & families alike!

Cadgwith

The Lizard Peninsula, England's most southerly point is a secret back water - almost an island, girded on three sides by the sea and the fourth by the meandering waters of the Helford river, only a tiny land bridge connecting us to the rest of Cornwall. Whatever your taste or choice for relaxation we have everything for you to explore from golden beaches to pebbly coves, dramatic cliff tops to still rivers and creeks full of bird life. Freshwater lakes, open heathland, fabulously hued Serpentine rock outcrops and gardens full of sub-tropical plants warmed by the Gulf Stream.

We are only a few miles from the most southerly point at The Lizard. And a 40 minute drive to the most Westerly point at Land's End and the Minnack Theatre.

The famous beaches of Kynance Cove and the fishing village at Cadgwith are only a couple of miles away, as well as big sandy beaches accessible by road at Poldhu and Kennack Sands. In the summer months we can point you toward the dog friendly beaches if you like too!

The traditional 'Furry Dance' takes place just 8 miles away in Helston on Flora Day on May 8th every year.

Add to this an amazing choice of restaurants and pubs serving beautifully fresh fish and other local produce, an eclectic selection of artists and craftspeople and every activity from surfing to sailing, hiking to horse-riding and all in a quieter setting than you ever thought possible in Cornwall.

For those who like theme parks we are close to Flambards which also has a great One2Eleven indoor play area for those rainy days if you don't fancy a wet windy walk along the cliffs!

"Great base to explore the Lizard"

Barn Cottage is spacious and airy yet with the wood burners going it also seems cosy! It's a lovely conversion, decorated and finished to a high specification, and is ideal for family accommodati… More

Hello and thanks for your review, we always appreciate feedback and we agree the wood burners do make such a difference which is why we added a second one to the dining area. We are delighted that you would like to return and look forward to welcoming you back. We have just bought some outdoor dining furniture and hope you'll like the new additions. Warm wishes Sandra and Peter

"Not as cosy as we had hoped for"

The cottage is clean,but really is a barn, and very rustic. The sitting room is dark, especially on dull days, the curaining in the bedrooms does not cut out light and between the 2 main bedrooms is a… More

Thank you for your comments, we always listen to guests comments and invite suggestions for ways that we can make your stay more enjoyable. We always ask guests during their stay to let us know if there is anything that they would like or need while they are here. It's a little difficult 6 months after your stay and a pity as I am sure we would have been able to help.

"What a lovely little retreat - the photos do not do the place justice"

On arrival, we were welcomed by Sandra who wanted to get the fires lit before we arrived. What a lovely feel the place had and we felt relaxed immediately. With two log fires burning, so much room downstairs to share and a wonderful little kitchen area, we found ourselves making the most of our little break. Alfie, our golden retriever enjoyed roaming around the open plan area.
The location was also excellent - only a few minutes from Kennack Sands or the Lizard, we didn't have to go far to see beautiful beaches and coastal walks.

Thank you very much for your lovely review - so glad you enjoyed yourselves, and certainly was a pleasure having you to stay. Look forward to welcoming you on your next visit!

"Beautiful cottage in a perfect location to explore Cornwall"

We had a fantastic stay at Barn Cottage. The owners were very welcoming to all members of our family, we travelled with a 2.5yr old and a 5 week old baby!
The cottage is surrounded by beautiful grounds in which we were allowed to wander. We were able to walk into the fields to meet the cows, wander around the farmland with the chickens and explore the woodland. On one occasion our little one was even allowed to help collect the eggs from the hen house :) The eggs are avaliable to purchase and are delicious!
The cottage has all basic amenities to ensure a comfortable stay. We quickly got used to using the log burners and logs were readily avaliable to purchase from the owners. The cottage was spotless on our arrival and includes a washing machine and dishwasher which are very handy with little ones around. We would however suggest that the owners provide a clothes airer. The weather was just a little too cold and windy to hang the washing on the line in the barn!
The bedrooms were all very spacious and include great storage for clothes. The beds were comfortable and had beautiful quilts for the cold nights.
The lounge and dining areas are huge and plenty adequate enough for the 5 adults and 2 children we had. There is lots of seating in the lounge but some of it is a little uncomfortable when settling down for a cold evening in front of the tv!!
There are 2 big supermarkets within a short drive from the cottage, we however, ordered our shopping to be delivered before we arrived and the owners were even kind enough to pack it all away into the cupboards for us :)
Whilst on our visit to cornwall we were able to visit Kynance Cove, Mullion Cove, Cadgwith Cove, The Lizard and Kennack Sands. All within a 10 minute drive from the cottage and worth a visit whatever the weather.
We also visited Lands End, Truro, St Ives and Trebah Gardens all within a 45 minute drive from the cottage. The owners provide plenty of information about places to visit when in Cornwall and were always around to answer any questions.

We were super impressed with Barn Cottage and loved how welcome we were made to feel every day of our holiday. We would love to return next year.

Thank you very much for your comprehensive and positive review, glad you had such a great break! We have now added a third sofa which is soft and ideal for comfy evenings, and have purchased a new airer. We very much look forward to welcoming you on your next visit!
