“Perfect half term break”
Reviewed 1 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

person found this review helpful

Booked for a week during half term for our family of 5. Everything about the Hendra Barn was perfect - we arrived late evening after having a lengthy journey down from Yorkshire and were greeted by a beautifully warm and welcoming cottage with a divine Victoria sponge cake and a birthday card for our little boy who was turning 5 the following day. The location is only a half an hours walk from the beautiful coastline of Port Isaac and ideal for anyone wanting to explore the surrounding villages and towns. Although we did not meet Angela we did meet her husband Phil who took our 5 year old out in his tractor - the highlight of his holiday! The contact with Angela up until our stay and the personal touches of this perfectly idealistic cottage made our half term holiday a week to remember! Thank you Angela and Phil - I'm sure we will be back!

“A perfect peaceful break - very cosy”
Reviewed 17 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

people found this review helpful

The owners were most welcoming, including the dogs, who made a big fuss of us. The cottage is on a working farm and is well appointed providing everything you need. They even provided a delightful Victoria sponge. We traveled in October with warm sunny days quickly turning to cold clear nights. The heating is excellent and quickly made every room toasty and cosy. You definitely need a car as the local pubs are welcoming but not really walkable. Take time to walk outside after dark, The Milky Way is very bright and visible,because there is little light pollution.

“Beautiful little retreat”
Reviewed 11 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We spent a very tranquil week at this lovely little cottage,fully equipped with all we needed...and a wonderful CAKE! Plenty to do locally, Port Isaac is everything we wanted it to be! No local pubs within walking distance but the St Kew is well worth the drive. The heating in the cottage was brilliant warm within minutes, Cosy! An outside light at the front of the property at night would be good,it was very dark. For a step off the planet, recharge your batteries, autumnal break..this beautifully presented cottage has it all! Highly recommended

Thank you for you review. Yes, it can be dark but the night skies can be amazing. Think the leaves of the trees also cover the light. We shall take note.

“Lovely little cottage”
Reviewed 21 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed here for 2 weeks as a family holiday.

Beautiful cake awaiting us on arrival which was very much appreciated after a very long, traffic filled journey from Yorkshire.

We were greeted by Paul who showed us around the cottage and gave us some helpful information regarding pubs and local routes.

Our dogs loved the little garden and felt at home straight away, and quick made friends with the resident dogs.

Would highly recommend.

This is an amazing place to stay, like home from home. We would definitely give this 5 stars.
A lovely welcome, and home made cake was greatly appreciated. Close enough to visit Port Isaac, Padstow, The Eden Project , Mevigissey, and loads of other beautiful locations,but a wonderful retreat to return to enjoying the peace and quiet. Will certainly be going again, and will recommend to friends.
