“Lovely break”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Just back from two nights at Roundhouse Barn feeling thoroughly pampered!
A beautiful location, and Barbara and Mark have thought of everything to make your stay as relaxing as possible. Particularly enjoyed the cream tea on arrival served on the patio.

We both felt that we struck gold finding your B&B to spend the weekend at. We have never been made to feel so welcome, as we were at the Roundhouse.
You have created the atmosphere of staying with family, but with all the perks of a top class hotel; free refreshments, ample choice of delicious food for breakfast, a spotlessly clean bedroom, and beautiful surroundings!
We would highly recommend your B&B to anyone!

Booked a last minute 2 night break for Easter weekend and we couldn't have booked anywhere better. Barbara and Mark were very thoughtful and attentive, served an amazing breakfast and recommended some lovely places to visit (would definitely recommend Alba restaurant in St Ives!). The rooms were very clean and have everything you possibly need :). Will be booking a self catering cottage some time in the future. Thank you!

Roundhouse Barn lived up to our expectations of being a first class B&B. Barbara was an excellent hostess and happy to give us suggestions on how best to spend our time in the area as well as providing excellent breakfasts. We had the smaller of the two rooms which was more than adequate for our purposes. Although it was only April we were able to enjoy our welcome afternoon cream tea in the garden. This B&B is situated in a delightful area of Cornwall if you like walking and I would certainly recommend it for a short Cornish walking break.

We stayed at Roundhouse Barns for 3 in July. This b&b is just perfect! Barbara is an extreme welcoming and helpful host. The breakfast was just great. The location was perfect, quiet and peaceful. This place deserves the rated 5 stars !

Will return if we are visiting this area another time !

Since writing our first review here we have stayed a number of times at Roundhouse Barn and I can only have high praise for Barbara and Mark, the Owners. We have stayed in all 3 cottages in the last 2 years and all of them are spec'd to a very high standard indeed, whether your desire is a luxury kitchen with Neff appliances you got it!, or a luxury rain showers or sumptuous bath, you got it, free internet or IPod docks....you got it. We are currently staying in the Carthouse for a week and as write this on our last night here, I cannot recommend this holiday enough. Both my wife and myself feel so relaxed here, we have slept well on the ginormous 6ft bed and relaxed watching sky tv in the evening, or listening to our fav music.

BARBARA AND MARK PLEASE TAKE A BOW

We stayed at Roundhouse Barn for two nights during September whilst attending a wedding. The accommodation was lovely inside and out - the setting and gardens are exquisite; and our room, the minnack, was beautifully appointed and included a luxury en-suite with a walk-in drench shower.

Our hosts Barbara and Mark (and Pongo and Barney) were warm and made us feel welcome. We were treated to a delicious home-made cream tea on arrival and the full Cornish breakfast is not to be missed.

As we were staying for a wedding, we didn't have a great deal of time to enjoy the grounds but it gives us an excuse to return one day just to relax, read a book and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. If you are looking for a relaxing break we recommend Roundhouse Barn as a perfect place to unwind.
