I have fond childhood memories of Perranporth and the surrounding areas and wanted to return so that my 3 children could make their own memories.....Skyber did not disappoint! On arrival we were greeted with Judith's homemade scones, clotted cream and jam. The sun was shining and stayed that way most of the week giving us the opportunity to have lazy...

Management response:

Thank you, Judith, for your great review. You were lovely guests and it was a pleasure to see you and your family enjoying the lawns, deck and play equipment. Thank you for your stay and for leaving the barn in such a clean and tidy condition. We'd love to see you return

Went for a weekend break with my sister, brother in law and husband. We received a warm welcome and the cottage was spotless and well stocked with the essentials. Not far from Truro it is a welcoming place in really lovely countryside. Would recommend this letting.

About the neighbourhood
Tregear is in the middle of the countryside, a lovely valley with woods and cows grazing, streams and fields of crops; the lane is very quiet - a few vehicles an hour, and the gardens and decks offer tranquility and wonderful fresh air. A half hour walk away is Ladock with its highly rated pub, The Falmouth Arms with great home cooked local food, local beers and ciders and a historic church. The lanes are quiet, interlaced and offer access to woodland and streams. A car is essential to enjoy your visits further afield. The A30 is 3 miles north and the A390 5 miles south - these are the main Cornwall road arteries. Both coasts are easily reached and they vary from the traditional seaside resort of Perranporth, sophisticated Lusty Glaze to the wild and tranquil Holywell on the North coast,... more

How to get there
Airport: Newquay: 19.0 km
Railway: Truro: 13.0 km
Ferry: Plymouth: 81.0 km
The barn is situated only 3.4 miles south of The A30 at Carland Cross, easily accessible from the main Cornwall highway - much of this is dual carriageway from Exeter, and from there are links to the M5 and the country's motorway network. The ferry port of Plymouth is only just over an hour away and the roads are all good A-roads, much of it dual carriageway. Similarly the Airport at Newquay is well served with links to the A30. Car hire is available at the airport. The main line train from London, Paddington operates about 4 direct services a day to Penzance, stopping at Truro and Truro has several car-hire companies. National Express coaches run to both Truro and Newquay and there are regular local bus services to Trispen. We would definitely recommend a car or cycles if you are to... more
