“Excellent accommodation, lovely location and very friendly owners”

person found this review helpful

We were a family of 7 and we stayed at lovely Mowhay Barn - Penvose Farm . The accommodation was simply the best and all the furnishings were of a very high standard. It was very comfortable as we had two kids as well. Ann and her family was very friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We are planning to stay at the farm again in Summer.
Thank you.

“Great place, lovely stay”
Reviewed 31 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Really enjoyed our stay here. The barn is well equipped and very pleasant to stay in - feels new and clean, unlike some holiday lets. It's situated next to the airport, and whilst we did hear planes taking off and landing, it was never intrusive and didn't disturb us.
There is a caravan park on site - never saw anyone while we were there - with a small play area, and some lovely coarse fishing lakes which my dad enjoyed!
The barn has an open plan lviving/kitchen/eating area which worked well for our family. Downstairs are three comfortable bedrooms, bathroom and ensuite. Again, all were spotless and the towels were really soft and large - a pet hate of mine being tiny little towels! There was tea/biscuits and milk left for us when we arrived plus beautful flowers - a little touch that reflected the owner Ann's approach - she was helpful and friendly without being overbearing e.g got us a cafetiere for the coffee drinkers amonst us and offered advice on local activities.
Talking of which...we loved Watergate Bay - a few minutes' drive up the road and with the most beautiful sunsets. Mawgan Porth a little further away had a lovely beach with caves, loads of shells, a water inlet (good for paddling), and surfers to watch on the enormous waves! We also visited St Agnes and the beach there, although small, was stunning. Bakery in the village did gorgeous sausage, tomato and basil sausage rolls!
Enjoyed Dairyland World - had a free return which we didn't use, but found it to be a good day out for the money (pumpkin carving and potion making were included on the day we went). Bedruthan steps fabulous - free parking if you're a National Trust member. A long walk for children; we made it to the viewing point.
Padstow nearby - tried Rick Stein's fish and chips and had a lovely time crabbing on the quay A lot quieter than in the summer which was nice.
We were looking for peace and quiet and a good base from which to roam, and we got it - lucky the weather was so good and hope to return to Cornwall again.

“Fantastic holiday home”
Reviewed 19 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We have just spent a week here. Penvose Farm is one of the best holiday rental homes we have ever stayed in. Lovely bright, very clean, open plan living area with plenty of room for even our 6' 5" son! He had a super huge bed and fitted in the shower! The beds are the most comfortable we have ever had in a holiday home. The location is peaceful, despite being next door to Newquay airport and the owners very welcoming and helpful. The property is just a 5min drive to the fabulous Newquay beach. We had a lovely time and would thoroughly recommend the property.

“Lovely Trip”
Reviewed 13 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed here with my two young children (1 and 3), wife and parents in law.

We had a lovely time: Anne was most accomodating and helpful, paritcularly with setting the barn up for two young children; the location was lovely (a few mins drive to a quiet beach) and easy to get onto the main roads to go out and explore Cornwall. The animals on the farm (sheep and chickens) were a hit with my 3 y.o..

I would highly recommend the barn, particularly for those with small children.
