A very comfortable barn conversion in the middle of lovely countryside. Very well located to get to some amazing beaches; we loved Porthtowan and Trevaunance Cove for the surf. The barn had everything we wanted and use of Jim & Carolyn's enormous garden, which the children loved. We felt very welcomed and Jim was very helpful with where to go and the best surf! If we had been able, we would return this year but sadly already booked!

We love coming to Sunbury Barn, the accomodation is excellent and the location superb, great views, only 2 miles from the beach but so quiet and peaceful. The children love spending time in the huge garden, grounds and exploring in the woods. We cycle and walk the coast path straight from the barn, love all the animals and just have a great time. Booked for next year already
