“Fantastic!!!”
Reviewed 14 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Highly recommended. Antony and Andrew were brilliant hosts, friendly, approachable and helpful. The barn was beautiful, clean and a very relaxing atmosphere. The pub itself had friendly locals and although we didn't sample the food it looked and smelled delicious. We will be telling all our friends and family about it and will be visiting again in the summer. Thanks very much guys!!! Rachel and josh

“High quality accommodation and great attention to detail.”
Reviewed 11 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

The accommodation was excellent very comfortable and set up well for 4 people to stay. The welcome pack was excellent as we arrived quite late. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The location is good within easy reach of Helston, Truro and the Lizard peninsula.

“High quality accommodation ”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Beautifully kept and very modern. The breakfast provisions that were provided was a lovely touch and very much appreciated. Andrew and Anthony were very welcoming and really friendly. We went to the pub on the Friday for dinner and the pork burgers were amazing! Highly recommend them!! Good place to get away from it all.

“Wow! Fantastic accommodation, hosts and location!”
Reviewed 30 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My husband and I have just spent a fantastic long weekend here and I would definitely recommend it to everyone.The Barn is immaculate, extremely comfortable and well equipped with top quality “everything”! I slept better than in my own bed!
There was a welcome pack of lovely local bread, eggs, butter, milk and tea and also coffee for the Nespresso coffee machine which was a thoughtful welcoming touch.
The seating area outside is a little suntrap and the accommodation is such a bonus being only 5 steps from the pub which also houses the village shop for essentials and local products. Anthony and Andrew and their gorgeous dogs were the perfect hosts, so friendly and welcoming and a wealth of knowledge on the local area.
The location is ideal for exploring Lands End, Lizard Point etc and convenient for both the North and South coast beaches.
We wished we could have stayed longer and we will be back!

“Excellent all round”
Reviewed 24 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We all loved our stay at The Barn at the Star Inn. The accommodation was fantastic and the hosts were very friendly and welcoming, offering great advice if asked. There was plenty of space for our family of four. It was very modern and had everything we needed. It was great having a pub so close by, which also conveniently housed the 'village shop'. We all wished we were staying longer, and hope to return soon. Thoroughly recommended.
