“Fantastic Welcome”
Reviewed 1 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We arrived at the barn with our two little girls for a much needed short half-term break. Our hosts were very warm and welcoming and the apartment absolutely perfect. Every detail had been thought of to make weary travellers feel at home down to locally sourced bread and butter and eggs for breakfast. It was a marvellous introduction to the beauty and hospitality of Cornwall for our two children. Would highly recommend to all.

“Lovely barn - Highly recommend”
Reviewed 1 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We were pleasantly surprised by this cosily renovated barn in a great location for exploring this area. It came equipped with everything we needed for a self-catering stay and more. The lack of internet in the property was a slight nuisance but for a short stay it was good to be liberated from laptops. Thank you very much for the complimentary bread, butter and milk (very unexpected) and for a great stay.

“First class accommodation, great location and amazing hosts. Perfect!”
Reviewed 17 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We’ve just arrived back from a long weekend break at The Barn at The Star Inn with our son and our dog. Wow!!! We would definitely recommend this place to everyone.

The Barn is an amazing place to stay and it has everything you need. The layout, décor and furniture are all perfect and the place is absolutely immaculate. The location is great as well, Porkellis is lovely little village with easy access to Lizard, Penzance, Land’s End, St. Ives, Falmouth, Porthleven etc.

On arrival there was a welcome pack, with some eggs, bakery bread, tea, milk and some great coffee. Also, Andrew and Anthony were amazing, super-friendly and so helpful with their knowledge of the area and places to eat, walk and visit.

Thank you both for making our weekend away so special. We can't wait to come back again :)
