“Lovely barn conversion with everything you need and in a great location”
Reviewed 16 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Travelling as a party of six this homely rental gave us the space we needed and a comfortable weekend stay.
Easy to find and close to lots of attractions.
Ann and her family have put a lot of thought and care into developing this rental.
We wouldn't hesitate to come back.

“Lovely place to stay with everything thought of for you.”
Reviewed 11 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The pictures on the website don't do this accommodation justice. Everything, from the lovely furniture and attractive decor has obviously been well and tastefully thought out with no expense spared. The little but thoughtful things like tea and coffee making facilities and washing tablets makes it feel so welcoming and comfortable. The family owners were a real pleasure too, making you feel more of a guest than a customer. My children wanted to move in permanently! Don't let the airport put you off. We didn't hear it at all once inside and barely outside. The children had fun spotting the animals outside too. All in all a beautiful barn, in a peaceful location and easy to find. We would definitely stay again. Thanks to Ann and the family.

“Ideal Holiday”
Reviewed 15 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The owner and family were friendly and helpful.
The accommodation was excellent and clean.
Ideally located for the beaches of the North Cornwall, Newquay and the A30 if you want to go further a field (St.Ives, Penzance, St.Michaels Mount, etc.).

“Beautiful barn, highly recommended!”
Reviewed 15 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I stayed here with 5 friends for my friends Hen do. It was great value, the barn is beautifully furnished and couldn't knock the cleanliness. Everything you need for a chilled out break. Location is great, very short drive to local beaches and easy walking distance too. Would stay again and highly recommend it.

“Lovely converted barn with real attention to detail”
Reviewed 4 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Stayed in August. Conversion is beautifully done. Very light and spacious upstairs in main living area and comfortable well appointed bedrooms downstairs. Very comfortable and welcoming. Its a shame it wasn't cold enough to use the log burner. Owners very helpful. Beach only 1/2 mile away. New Quay airport did not disturb us at all. A good time had by all.

“Beautiful converted barn..tempting to relax here, yet gorgeous Cornwall beaches are just on the door step”
Reviewed 30 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Mowhay Barn is a perfect blend of modern and traditional, with all we wanted for a relaxing break, such as comfortable beds, powerful showers, and a large cosy corner sofa. The traditional feel of the wooden beams and the wood burner is complemented by modern touches such as wifi, a gas bbq and a dishwasher. There were many thoughtful touches upon arrival such as dishwasher tablets, maps of the area, flowers, and tea and coffee. The large upstairs area sold it to us; it was perfect for our group of 20s-30s from different nationalities to relax, cook, play games, watch dvds etc.
Even though it used to be a barn it is nice and warm, and in fact we were glad to have the excuse of using the wood burner one night after enjoying a leisurely bbq in the courtyard area.
It was special staying on a farm, but also being very close to two beautiful beaches; Watergate Bay (walkable) and Mawgan Porth. We even enjoyed a surf lesson at King Surf on Mawgan Porth beach. Other highlights included a cream tea (sweet and savoury) at St Mawgan Village Stores tea rooms, the Eden Project, and a wonderful time cycling the Camel Trail (routes between Bodmin and Padstow; parking and hiring bikes in Wadebridge). Although we had parking spaces for both our cars we noticed bus stops into Newquay nearby and the airport.
Nb It worked out well to order food from Asda online and have it delivered to the barn.

Liked best: The big open space upstairs enabled a great feeling of being together: Some could chill with a book in a corner, others cook & lay the table, someone else could jam with a guitar on a bar stool etc
Liked least: Having to leave!
