“Comfy barn conversion”
Reviewed 15 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Close to Padstow and with some great walks on the doorstep, this is a semi-detached barn conversion done to a good standard. Comfy with all the amenities you'd need (well, unless a mobile signal is important to you!). The main bedroom is a tad small and we used the second twin room to keep our clothes. Not sure how a family of four would cope. The only big minus for us was the road. It's a b-road between Padstow and Newquay and it does get fairly busy (so noisy) at times.

Thank you for your comments, regret the mobile signal is poor as it is in many parts of Cornwall. The road is busier in the high season but thankfully quiet for the rest of the year.

“Perfect, Quiet, Exceptionally Clean with Beaches on your Doorstop - Loved it!!”
Reviewed 15 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We've just returned from a weekend break and would highly recommend this barn. It has everything you need and truly does give you a home from home experience.
With Padstow only a 10 minute car journey away and the most beautiful beaches within a 5 minute walk we couldn't of been happier.
Martin met us at the rental and give us some handy hints and tips which were very useful during our stay. After a long journey from South Wales we were given homemade flapjacks and milk upon arrival (what a lovely gesture).
We purposely booked this rental due to its location and facilities as we wanted somewhere to recharge our batteries so to speak.
If you need wifi and mobile signal then this rental wouldn't be for you, we knew ahead of booking the signal was poor in the area so this didn't bother us at all. If you do need a signal, you could obtain one by walking up the hill a little (no more than a 3 minute walk).
We have just arrived home and feel rather sad to of left such a wonderful part of the country but we will definetely be going back later this year......
A big thank you to all involved at the rental, the booking process wqs very easy and the hospitality was amazing.
We loved every minute of it and hope to see you again soon. Keep up the good work Martin & Sharon :-)

Thank you for your kind words, l am so glad you enjoyed your stay at our barn. The location is good for many great beaches and there are plenty of good places to eat. We are hoping to put wifi in this year, hope that will not affect you coming back for a return visit in any way!!

“Just like home”
Reviewed 20 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Just like home, that's how we felt.
Going away for a weekend is something that we all look forward.
When away we always look for new places to explore as well as a welcoming accommodation with a warm feeling to give comfort.
We found all that in Skiber An Hyli. From welcoming flap jacks, advise on places to visit to accommodating check in times.
A lovely converted barn, very well decorated with great taste and fragrance... no need for second thoughts.
Loads of places to visit within 1 h range.
We would strongly recommend it!!
