“Spacious, clean and serene cottage. Look forward to next visit”
Reviewed 24 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed in the two bed cottage, which had ample space for all our stuff (just the two of us but body boarding for the week). Very clean and modern with all the facilities and utensils needed for self catering. We normally ate in after two session at the beach in a day and settled to watch DVDs which is built into the TV. The wifi worked well had to pick from the different options to get the strongest signal but no issues with it. Great You can park your car right outside too.

As we were body boarding for the week James let us use the boiler room to dry out our suits, the room was at the right temp for this so didn't ruin the glue. There was a trolley rack and other hangers available which helped.

Location wise Tesco was a 5 min drive in one direction and the beach in the other. We liked the quite location with plenty of room in the grounds, even had a Pinic bench outside our French doors.

Used google maps to get there which got me right to the gate but didn't tell me to turn so easily drove past the right turn. But saw the Pigallie sign and turned back. Relatively easy to find. James met us with the keys and gave us the tour and some directions for shops. It's all quite close to everything (by car)

Loved Portreath and body boarding there was brilliant...staying at the barns was ideal for us and we will be going back again

“Cream of Cornwall”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

person found this review helpful

Stayed here for 3 nights, was easy to find using sat nav and directions given by James. The property is in excellent condition it had everything we needed and we got a warm cornish welcome from James and his family. The Barn is situated off the main road into Portreath which is just over a mile away, newquay and st ives just under 30mins and you can reach the A30 easily from the barn in a few minutes. There is a bus service which will stop on request by campsite but I would recommend that you take a car if you really want to explore this part of cornwall. Would definitely stay again, the barn is as you see it on the pics. There's a folder in the barn giving you ideas for places to stay and some local info, if you do get to st Ives go to the Balancing Eel, best fish n chips!
There is wi-fi but this can be tricky to connect to and you may find it difficult with phone signal depending upon which network your on. I booked with holiday lettings you'll have to wait 10days! to get deposit back
