Reviewed 9 April 2013

Roundhouse Barns was added to our short-list last year and this Easter we stayed in The Carthouse. It did not disappoint. Luxury self-catering accommodation for couples in a rural area with absolutely no traffic or aircraft noise - bliss. Despite the Arctic winds, which were freezing, we were wonderfully warm and cosy. Plenty of walking directly from the cottage with walk ideas, as well as an OS map, and lots of local information available as well as a wide-range of CDs, DVDs and games on the bookshelves. Surprisingly The Carthouse is the only barn offering a king-size/twin bed. A truly relaxing break in quality accommodation with some special welcoming touches added by Barbara and Mark including fresh flowers and a couple of Lindt chocolate bunnies!

We found this gem 18 months ago and came back again and had another delightful weekend in March. We stayed in the B&B again but this time in the Fal. We loved this room as much as the Minack. All the facilities e.g. TV, radio, magazines and DVDs etc are of high quality. The complimentary mini bar is brilliant! The huge luxurious en-suite looks as clean and new as when we were last here 18 months ago. Barbara and Mark continue to be welcoming and charming hosts. Breakfast is the best we have had on all of our Cornwall holidays. It felt like staying with close friends and yet with plenty of privacy. We went to a Michelin starred restaurant nearby and spent our last night there. The food was brilliant but I don't think the B&B there was comparable to the Roundhouse Barn. Thank you so much for the lovely bottle of birthday wine. We will definitely come back to Roundhouse Barn again when we visit St Mawes.

Arrived at 18:30 after a seven and half hour drive to be greeted by two friendly faces offering us a cream tea or a glass of wine - both of which were a very welcome offering !

My wife and I stayed in the bed & breakfast part of the accomodation. Our room was very well presented with water, fruit juice and fresh milk in the mini fridge in the room. The room was very clean as was the ensuite bathroom. Barbara & Mark are great hosts with a good knowledge of the area (you will definitely require the instructions on how to get there as the property is in the middle of nowhere !).

My wife & I stayed for two nights and the breakfast choice each day was excellent, we had 2 chocolate Easter eggs in our room on arrival and a 'welcome' card from Mark & Barbara - great personal touches.

Mark & Barbara were lovely people and very accommodating and also made you feel very welcome.

A lovely break for 2 days and would definitely return and the dogs were lovely and well controlled.

We stayed at Cockle Cottage and absolutely loved it - it was delightful to come home to the cottage at night - a real home away from home. Mark and Barbara were briliant hosts - we were greeted with lovely scones, jam and cream on arrival and they were so helpful with maps and recommendations for dining out. Staying at Roseland eas a great base for exploring that part of Cornwall - we would not hesitate to stay there again.

We needed a peaceful weekend away and this was absolutely perfect. Mark and Barbara couldn't do enough for us - especially as our car broke down just 8 miles from the b&b and the RAC took 4 hours to arrive. Mark picked me up while my husband waited, gave me a glass of wine and generally helped to relieve my anxiety. When my husband finally arrived at 10pm, they made him supper! And the following morning took us to Newquay to collect our car from the garage.

I cannot emphasise enough how fantastic this place is: immaculate, soothing, eco-friendly, excelant value, with delicious food,ever-helpful hosts that are never 'in-your-face' and an array of well deserved awards.

We found Roundhouse Barn excellent in every detail. A superb holiday destination.
We have some great difficulty in believing that the dogs could be nuisance. They are both very timid and although large and playful do not intrude upon any places they shouldn't.
We also have difficulty in believing that either Mark or Barbara would find a 'spurious' excuse to go into the self catering units, this is simply untrue. They treat all their guests with great respect.

Room Tip: Have put average because there is no fitness centre or children's activities.

My new husband and I stayed at the Roundhouse B&B as part of our honeymoon. The stay was relaxing and breakfasts outstanding every morning. The room was really confortable and the overall stay felt very homely and luxurious. Will definately be staying here again.
