“Perfect Family Getaway”
Reviewed 4 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Amazing accommodation ... Everything catered for and a superb welcome basket upon arrival consisting of milk, eggs, wine and other essentials! Everything was clean and it felt home from home.
There is a lot to do and all is listed in the welcome folder. The weather was not great for us so there is more we would've done but were a little restricted.
We went to the beach at St. Ives and took the wetsuits and body boards from the accommodation which were great and saved us the expense of hiring them. The kids had a go at bodyboarding which they LOVED!
There is an ancient village ten minutes walk up the road and a riding stables ten minutes drive away. We did not ride as we left it too late to book but I would organise this next time.
I cannot fault this accommodation and the area is beautiful.
The owners kept in contact leading up to our visit and I emailed the housekeeper whilst there who replied very quickly and addressed my query.
A truly amazing place which is quiet and we enjoyed the peace as a family.
We hope to return soon.

Hi John,
So glad you had such a great time, and thanks for your very kind words. Yes, the wi-fi is a bit pants - we are on the end of a very long bit of BT string! But we try to compensate with lots of books, DVDs and games. As you say, it does no harm to go "off-grid" for a while. We hope to welcome you all back soon.
All best,
John and Sue

Reviewed 28 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

A fabulous holiday made even more special by a great place to stay. Lovely log fires of an evening, comfy beds, a gorgeous welcome pack on arrival and lots of room for the family to have a relaxing week. Borrowing the wetsuits meant we had a quick dip in the sea in October which had not been planned. A bit out of the way & remote but that was good for us!
Thank you very much John and Sue xx

“Couldn't ask for a better holiday home”
Reviewed 19 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Stayed here for a week with a few friends and we all agreed it was a definite 5 stars! Our arrival was met with a delightful hamper filled with breakfast bits so we didn't have to go straight back out. The entire place was well equipped, clean and authentic. Location is great, maybe 10-15 minutes down to Penzance and close by (less than a minutes drive) to Chysauster village to start off your sightseeing.

I've already recommended it to family members!

The WiFi connection is good enough to send/receive messages we found but streaming any video was pretty much out of the question so bear that in mind if you were going to take a device for it.

Hi Alex,
Glad to hear you had a great week and enjoyed the barn. Yes, broadband speeds in rural Cornwall are pretty slow, but I hope the DVD library kept everyone entertained. We hope to welcome you back again soon.
All best wishes,
John and Sue.
