Guest Comments

"Grain store 2 was a perfect base for us to have a break with our dog: quiet (apart from the pheasants!), 15 minute walk to a quiet cove/ beach, lots of stunning coastal walks nearby. The cottage is warm, modern, comfortable and well-equipped, and our host Nikki who lives upstairs was very helpful but did not disturb us at all. Lovely courtyard and garden, would be perfect for a summer break in the sun. We hope we can visit again. Thank you."

"We had one of the best family holidays we've ever had here and can't thank Nicki enough for all her help and reassurance not only in the run up to our holiday but also during. The cottage was perfect for us a family with a young toddler and a dog. It's in a beautiful setting with great gardens and 5 mins drive from a the lovely Portholland beach. Having our own private, enclosed courtyard was a real plus as we could leave the doors of the cottage open knowing our toddler and dog were safe running around outside! The cottage was spacious, clean and cosy with plenty of storage in the kitchen and bedrooms. We felt totally at home and it made a perfect base for us to explore Cornwall as well as kick back and relax in the gorgeous surroundings of the barns. Thank you for reassuring us with regard to all the extra measures you went to around Covid19. It really put our mind at rest and meant we could have a much needed break."

"lovely building, old exterior and modern interior. Beautiful garden."

Nick, July 2020

"Hidden gem. Just spent a lovely week at the Grain Store 2. Home from home. Nicky so welcoming and friendly. The welcome basket was well received.Well situated to visit all the places we wanted to see other than St Michael's Mount. We didn't realise that it was only open Mon-Wed until it was too late.The only downside was the daily rain but can't control that so just donned boots and mac.Hope to return earlier in the year the next time."
