“Stunning holiday home”
Reviewed 31 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We rented the south barn during the half term week, the photos online really don't do it justice, every room is beautifully presented, upstairs is a large warm and comfortable open family area and kitchen ,downstairs you have 2 double bedrooms one with roll top bath and a twin room suited for kids, there is also a family bathroom and wet room with shower. Mevagissey itself is a 20-25 minute walk (we have 2 boys 5&8 so probably quicker if you don't have kids) down hill on the way there and mostly uphill on the return, if returning after dark a torch is necessary for your safety whilst walking on the road and the lane from the road to the barn is pitch black at night! Lovely welcome pack on arrival of Cornish goodies, plenty to do in immediate area or lands end etc..only 1.5 hrs drive. .would definitely return.

“Return Visit - Still brilliant”
Reviewed 29 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

It is always a good sign when all the group want to return to revisit a place. We enjoyed our first visit to South Barn in 2014 and the second visit did not disappoint. The welcoming note, flowers and goodies are just a lovely touch and made us feel so very welcome. And the lemon drizzle cake was delicious!

The south barn is warm, cosy, modern, clean and has everything you would need for a visit. Mevagissy is a great village so plenty to see and explore. We would recommend a trip to the Hidden Hut for food. Great location and lovely food.

We would highly recommend the South Barn and hope to return again soon

“Outstanding!!!”
Reviewed 26 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I stayed for 5 days in the South Barn with my wife, 4mth old and my parents.

There was a fantastic welcome pack containing all local ingredients including a delicious cake! As an example of how considerate and helpful the owners are, i had asked the day before we arrived whether there was a cafetiere (there is) and they had gone to the trouble of picking up some cornish coffee for us to have on arrival.

The house itself is spacious, very well maintained, the kitchen is well stocked of utensils, plates, glasses, board games etc, and if you feel like something is missing, you only have to walk down to the main house and ask the owners who are only too happy to help.

It takes just over 15 minutes to walk to the centre of Mevagissey, and there are some lovely forest paths surrounding the property so it is well placed and there is plenty of parking,

I could not recommend the South Barn enough-- 5 stars all round.

“A wonderful holiday house in Cornwall!”
Reviewed 5 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

people found this review helpful

I rented the South Barn with 5 friends for a long May Bank holiday weekend and we had an absolutely wonderful time. The house is beautifully furnished, very well equipped and conveniently located. Just a short drive away from the Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, an easy drive to Newquay, a walking distance from the town centre of Mevagissey and with lots of possible country walks around.

The owners live just around the corner and are extremely helpful. We were greeted by a selection of local produce (some beautiful cheese, eggs, bacon, sausages, bread, wine, marmalade and a delicious home-made cake) and a very sweet welcome letter with all the information we could possibly need. A charming place and can't recommend it enough!
