About mrs naomi thompson

We converted the barn about 10 years ago and have lived here ever since. We are a family with 3 kids and dog and a cat.

mrs naomi thompson purchased this cottage in 2001

Why mrs naomi thompson chose Cornwall

We bought the barn as it was such a beautiful building. When you stand in the garden you can often hear nothing but the birds. The location suits us really well. The lane is incredibly quiet but its a short drive to everywhere we need to be.

Guestbook comments from the owner

- The best place we have ever stayed!

- This is a fantastic property which although seemingly in the middle of nowhere is really close to all the places we wanted to see and all the amenities. Would definitely come back! (Dec 2013)

- we've had a lovely break and I think we all fell in love with Owl's House. Excellent accommodation in a beautiful area. We will be back!

Converted Barn on quiet lane, near St. Erth, Hayle and St. Ives
average rating of 4.75 based on 5 reviews

Lovely,spacious cottage in piecedul lane.

  • 5 of 5

Had 3 nights midweek in September so our elderly (90 years) mother could catch up with her 93 year sister in law in Penzance.

We had a wonderful time and managed to get out and about in the beautiful countryside.

The barn was lovely and very well equipped.

We would definitely recommend this as a place to stay off the beaten track, but close to all the main areas to visit in that part of Cornwall.

Only minor problem was there is a step inside the barn and also to get out, not the easiest for elderly people who struggle to walk.

We will return sometime.

A calming and relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Owl's house stressed from the toils of London and left significantly calmer and more relaxed. Owl's house is in the depth of the countryside but within easy reach of lots of lovely beaches and walks. It was incredibly peaceful. We found the accommodation spotlessly clean and well laid out. The living room and kitchen are large and meant that we did not feel on top of each other (we are a family of 5). It was really useful to have a dishwasher and washing machine. The beds were really comfy and we all slept well. On the few rainy days the kids enjoyed the multitude of books, dvds and made an extensive train track. We loved the peace and quiet that Owl's house provided and yet we were really easily able to get to the beaches and local towns. The owner was very helpful with regards to where to go and what to do. Our visits included St Michael's Mount, Mousehole & Gwithian beach. We had a lovely pub lunch at the Coastguard in Mousehole. We are planning our next visit already. Many thanks.

Peaceful Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Lovely relaxing short break. Very peaceful cottage up a narrow lane in the countryside above Hayle but also not far from St Ives. Loved the area around Godrevy point with wide sandy beach and coastal walks.

Car essential, plenty of parking for more than one car.

Lovely private garden with sheltered patio, wooden table and chairs and BarBQ. Lucky with weather and able to sit outside at beginning of October but owners dog - a friendly large black retriever found his way in through fence twice and into the cottage when patio doors left open. Owner has promised to look at fence and prevent this happening in the future.

Bed was very comfortable, Main bedroom has good ensuite shower. Family bathroom has lovely rolled top bath and small free standing shower.

Kitchen area spacious with table to sit around. Crockery and utensils fairly basic and store cupboard limited stock, and mainly what others have left behind. Shops in Hayle very basic and parking difficult but large M&S at the roundabout into Hayle and apparently also Tesco not far. Best to stock up before you arrive.

Few minor things could do with repair / replacement but owners very helpful when reported. Generally the property was well cleaned but the oven could do with proper clean as very smoky when used and racks greasy.

Appeared to have a good choice of DVDs and games for family entertainment on rainy days but I didn't need these.

Although a single storey barn conversion there is an internal step down into the kitchen / main sitting area from the hallway and the step access at the front door may not be suitable for all disabilities.

Happy to recommend and would go back if visiting that area again
