Cosy cottage and great location for exploring North Cornwall

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic week visiting North Cornwall, the cottage is lovely with a traditional rustic charm, the beds were very comfortable (and huge),there was plenty of space for our family of 4 plus my mother in law who enjoyed the spacious ground floor bedroom which opens out onto the beautiful well kept garden, which is also very secure and safe for the children to play. The cottage is very well equipped and we had everything we needed to enjoy our wonderful stay. The location is superb if you want to explore all North Cornwall has to offer, and we found plenty to do for all, Eden, Lost gardens of Heligan, St Austell and east coast within a 45 min drive and a shorter drive to some wonderful local beaches and towns, Port Isaac, Polzeath, Padstow, Tintagel, Newquay The local shop has all your essentials and the pub is very friendly and short walk down the lane. And don't forget to call in at the local St. Mabyn cider farm for a taster!! We didn't do this until the end of our stay and we unfortunately missed out on the Sunday social /Live music... one for next time!

Gorgeous spacious cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

We just loved this lovely cottage and as a family we enjoy home from home comforts. My personal favourite was the garden bedroom, which provides extra privacy from our gorgeous kids. The garden is sunny, not overlooked and pretty. In addition the Village St Mabyn has a great local friendly and welcoming pub. Would love to visit again soon.

Beautiful traditional Cornish cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous from start to finish! So sad to leave this wonderful cottage. My Daschund and I had a great time visiting family and friends and as I'm a Cornishman myself I felt very at home in St Maybn!!

Will definitely return as it's such a great base for trips to the coast/ Moor and nearby Wadebridge.

5 stars all the way!! X

Needs a thorough clean

  • 2 of 5

Great location in a lovely village with plenty of room and facilities. However the cottage smells of damp and was quite dirty in places. Plenty of dust and cobwebs, obvious that it is not cleaned and maintained properly. Water leaks in the sun room. Bathroom not clean which is unacceptable. Considering this week was our only family holiday this year, we all feel let down. I don't expect gold taps and oil paintings but no excuse for poor cleanliness.

Owner's Response: First of all many apologies for not meeting the standard that you and I expect.. We have been operating the cottage for over 10 years and our changeover team are very experienced and professional but clearly something has gone wrong on this occasion and I am investigating and will ensure it does not happen again. The 300 year old cottage has had some maintenance issues caused by heavy rain at the busiest time of the season and it has been difficult to properly rectify them without disrupting peoples holidays. Full remedial work has been planned.

Cosy, well equipped cottage in lovely village

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in barn parc cottage. The charming cottage was extremely well equipped and has everything you need and probably the things you forgot to take- dishwasher tablets, washing liquid etc.

Lovely enclosed private garden and courtyard to eat and play in, perfect for the children and the dogs.

Very comfy beds, better than ours at home and a powerful hot shower!

St Mabyn is quiet, pretty and has a playground and good pub where we ate a couple of times. St Kew a short drive away has an excellent pub too.

Perfectly situated for beaches, Port Isaac, Tintagel, Padstow as well as the Eden project and lost gardens of Heligan.

Would definitely stay here again.

Peace and Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

The phrase 'stepping back in time' springs to mind when describing our Cornish holiday, as for me it brought happy memories of a childhood holiday in Cornwall over 50 years ago.

St Mabyn is a lovely quiet traditional Cornish village, a friendly place where everyone says hello when you pass them by. The village is well located to visit the tourist areas such as Eden Project, Padstow, Tintagel, Port Isacc, Boscastle etc.as well as Wadebridge & Bodmin where you can find major supermarkets.

Barn Parc cottage is a very short walk to the village shop and St Mabyn Inn, which again was a thriving friendly place to go for a meal or a drink. Loved this traditional cottage which was spacious, comfortable, clean and homely and had all of the amenities needed for our 10 night stay. The owners provided a comprehensive pack of information, not only on the cottage itself but local walks, attractions, places to eat and useful telephone numbers. There is an enclosed, well maintained garden to the rear of the cottage where it is nice to sit or if, like us, you are travelling with a dog then it is totally secure. We also found Cornwall itself to be a dog lovers paradise.

If you are looking for a peaceful and restful break away from it all, then I would highly recommend Barn Parc Cottage and St Mabyn.
