What can I say, this little slice of heaven was amazing. Arrived to the fire on and a warm greeting from both Helen and Fudge the dog. The cottage, was clean, comfortable and beautifully cosy.

Rupert the dog was made very welcome and loved playing in the private garden.

A great place to relax and turn off and I would both recommend it to anyone and come again.

Couldn't fault a single thing. Well done Helen and Rory you have a gem.

A perfect little gem.

  • 5 of 5

Little Barn really is a lovely place to get away from it all. The three days we spent there were just so relaxing.

We arrived to a roaring fire and a Christmas tree, so cosy, it was a job to move our dog once he had settled in front of the fire, the best place to be in cold January.

Helen and Rory could not have been more accommodating, you couldn't ask for more.

The place was spotless and so pretty. We would love to return in the summer and make the most of the garden.

Highly recommended!

Sue, Mike and Barney the whippet.

Very comfortable accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

Little Barn was a most welcoming and comfortable place to stay.

It was well-equipped and beautifully clean and Helen and Rory were very helpful and friendly.

They had made a special effort to provide all that might be needed for a comfortable stay: there was a plentiful supply of logs for the wood-burner, a large selection of maps and information and the washing and drying facilities were excellent.

Our dog Monty enjoyed being able to explore the garden and we were happy that he was safely contained.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and would certainly recommend Little Barn!

Thank-you Helen, Rory and Fudge!

The perfect retreat.

  • 5 of 5

An ideal location to escape the pressures of everyday life in surburbia, peaceful and relaxing. The property was well maintained, clean and provided everything you could need, and more. Helen and Rory were on hand for any queries, lovely hosts. Our dog loved the garden as much as we did, it was beautiful. One of the best cottages in Cornwall that we have stayed in - a real 'find'.
