“The mini barn is an almost perfect holiday let, in fact we could actually live here.A slip mat in the shower would be beneficial but that is the only thing we could say to improve it for us.We had such a relaxing time and our dog, Mr.Pickles, loved the local walks.We will book again without a second thought, only this time for longer than a week”

“My stay at Mini Barn was lush it's a lovely place and this was my second stay. The weather was pretty intense with Storm Eunice and the one before. During the really bad weather days, I sat and watched the landscape from the amazing picture window upstairs. I experienced a couple of power cuts due to the weather but they were resolved each day and to be honest, I expected it during the storms.I love this part of Cornwall for it's incredible coastline and it's a few minutes walk away from Mini Barn. You can walk safer paths, higher coastal paths, or if you're adventurous like me, you can take the more precarious, narrow (but well trodden), closer to the edge paths.The Barn is super clean, comfortable, super warm, modern yet not overly so. I loved having all the mod cons in the kitchen & I found it to contain everything you need to cook a good meal each day. The bed was warm and comfortable; and the bathroom was lovely. Finally, I'm always grateful for a good internet connection. The only change since I last stayed was the addition of double yellow lines near around the parking area for the Barn it was often busy in the unmarked parking areas, but I always found parking close by.Highly recommend.”

“Beautiful location, well appointed accommodation and spotlessly clean. First night no heating, but a phone call to Rhianna, the cleaner, solved the problem. The batteries in the thermostat needed replacing. A really lovely property fitted our needs perfectly. Will probably return and would definately recommend it.”

“We have stayed at mini barn several times before and each time We go it just gets better and better. Always so clean and comfy.”

“This is a lovely cosy cottage with spectacular coastal views. The cottage is well laid out and the standard of the furnishings is very high. On the downside, the bed is uncomfortable and creaks very loudly, the driveway towards the cottage looks like a scrap merchant's yard and there is a distinct lack of utensils in the kitchen. Otherwise, it is a lovely place to relax for a week albeit we did bump our head on the upstairs sloping ceilings several times!”

“Lovely cottage in excellent location near the coast. Good walking country with historic tin mining heritage. Well equipped apart from limited crockery and kitchen utensils (reduced because of Covid). Low ceilings are a bit hazardous and the bed creaks ominously! Overall it's a delightful bolthole to get away from it all.”

“We had a lovely stay at Mini Barn, the location was perfect for exploring the local area, and was close to the coastal path. The views from the upstairs sitting area were amazing. Mini Barn was well equipped with everything you needed for an enjoyable stay, the fixtures and fittings were great quality, as were all the bed linen and towels provided.The only thing we feel could be improved is the furniture, the sofa downstairs has very low backs making it hard to relax on. The furniture in the upstairs lounge is great quality, but again not comfortable to relax on with a book etc. Might just be us being used to a nice big comfy sofa at home, but we did miss that comfort side. The bed linen and duvet are amazing quality, so much so we're having a trip to John Lewis to see if we can find the exact one! It does however feel as though the mattress or bed frame is sinking in the middle a bit.We had a great stay all in all and would definitely return, and will recommend to friends and family.Thank you for a lovely stay!”

“Stunning views in a small, but well equipped home. This is a quiet getaway from everything kind of space. We would certainly stay again. Note though: It is cozy, if you are exceptionally tall or larger than average you may find it too cozy. Ceilings on top floor are low in the sitting room and bathroom. Multiple bumped heads for us. Shower door is also very narrow and a tight squeeze if you are wide. Bed was ok, but dips in the middle. Heated mattress a nice touch. The views were worth the cramp and despite covid restrictions it was well equipped and super clean. I loved the personal touches of art and bookvideo library. I would recommend it having more clear sign posting as it does look like you are entering a private area that looks like a scrap heap to get to the barn. Not clear. Directions also outdated as the turning point is now a Spar.”

“A lovely cottage. The garden is enclosed but not dog proof!”

“We had a fabulous holiday staying in the mini barn very happy with the well thought out accommodation. The view is spectacular and the location is great for coastal walking we were very fortunate with the weather. Mini barn also provides a location with easy access to St Ives, Penzance etc. Our holiday was special, romantic our dog sulked when we returned home she had enjoyed the best holiday! The kitchen is well organised and equipped and the enclosed garden is a delight. We would definitely considered returning.”
