About Ken Evans

I have owned Hendra Barns for more than 17 years and over that time have put my heart and soul into this beautiful place. It has been a joy to work on these old buildings and bring them back to life. Hendra keeps me busy with the every day jobs. It's a pleasure as the setting is peaceful as well as relaxing, I am always around to ask advice as I live 200 yards away up the lane in Keepers Cottage..

Why Ken Evans chose Ladock

Hendra is a place you will relax. Soak up the atmosphere, unwind with views that can only please as it is surrounded by the country side.

This is an ideal situation as we have easy access to the A30 but are only 2 minutes away from Hendra and it's beautiful location.

What makes this barn unique

The Barn will draw you to the Garden room and the views will explain why, Views looking down to the lakes. Watching the wildfowl land makes this a very special place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mr Clarke-Allan - April 2014

"I stayed at Hendra Barn with my wife, her mother, the kids, grandchildren and our dogs. The place was perfect for us all, a very central location but quite and rural. Stunning views across farmlands. The proprietor was on site, very friendly and always around but I always felt relaxed and he went to great efforts to ensure that this was our cottage and our holiday. I would not hesitate to go back or to recommend Henra to anyone."

Mrs Williams - August 2013

"The grounds here were well used by our children in terms of cricket, football & running around the lake. The property is in splendid isolation yet close enough to the main A30 to allow easy access to all areas of the north & south coasts. The house was spacious & the upper decked balcony was perfect to view the stars at night as there is no light pollution. Perfect holiday destination."

Mrs Matthews - May 2013

"From location in the rolling Cornish countryside to comfort this property is tops for a relaxed family holiday or a group of friends."

Spacious, beautiful accommodation in a glorious setting

Hendra Barn is a fabulous property, very spacious and beautifully maintained and furnished. The property is very well equipped and caters perfectly for ten guests. The grounds are stunning and the views from the superb 'living' room are lovely. We had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay and are very grateful to Ken, Maggie and Anna for making us feel so welcome.

Great property, very well presented.

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious property which swallowed 6 adults, 6 children and a dog with ease. There would have been enough space for the children to play indoors without getting under the feet of the adults even if we'd had to stay indoors. As it was we had glorious weather and made the most of nearby beaches and the extensive grounds.

The barn is furnished to a very high level.

The owners were attentive and provided scones etc for a cream tea on arrival - a very nice touch, and they were on hand to check whether the holiday was progressing ok throughout our week.

Great Place to Stay

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time staying at Hendra Barn and Ken was the perfect host and really made you feel at home. Loved the barn and so did all the family that were there to celebrate an important birthday. Would recommend a stay here and looking forward to coming back at some time. The welcome pack was great and really appreciated.
