“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!”

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!

“5 star quality Barn converstion in a lovely quite setting”

We stayed at the South Barn for a short break over Easter of 4 days. We were very pleasantly surprised to find the accomodation so much better than we expected from the photographs - we expected nice we got wow!

The welcome pack was marvelous and we were chilling out very quickly with a bottle of Cornish wine and lemon drizzle cake. So quite and nice and dark at night so you can see the stars - patio area - there are two! for when the sun moves - you can't fault it.

A lovely walk close by into the woods and fields and not so far if you want to walk into Mevagissy but we were not that adventurous - very handy for the lost gardens of babilon - I mean Heligan. and so many nice restuarants locally we were spoiled.

Everything was above our expectations.

We did not want to leave.

The south barn is just amazing. It is finished to such a high standard and the attention to detail is impressive. The living area is huge with everything you'd need. I just wish it was cool at night so we could use the log burner ;) The bedrooms and bathrooms were great. Comfy beds and just really quaint. The chocolate brownies and welcome pack were so nice. A pleasant surprise.
I really can't find fault with the south barn. I would highly recommend and hope to return soon. It is in a great location although driving through Mevagissy is not for the faint hearted :)
