The Barnyard is ideally situated to explore the Cornish coast. Nestled in a quiet valley it is only a 30 minute walk to a sandy beach, ideal for surfing, water sports or cliff walks. Its central location means you are only minutes away from local attractions such as the Eden Project, Tate Gallery and Minack Theatre.

Most of the cottages are 2 storey reverse accommodation and give unspoilt views of the private gardens. There is a private drive and the 3-acre grounds are secluded, ideal for picnics, barbecues and sunbathing. The small wooden play area is excellent for children to explore, and there is a games room with pool table, table football, wide screen TV, DVDs and videos.

    Not up to usual standards. Very cold. Bedding not warm enough for the time of year. Towels we were given were still very damp-straight from the laundry. The place smelt cold and damp. One tea towel for a week not good. Felt the whole set up needed some TLC. We did however enjoy our holiday in a lovely area. it may once have received a gold award but it wouldnot now.

    I actually stayed in The Hayloft next door (booked both these properties). Rafters was generally OK but The Hayloft was much smaller and suffered from lack of maintence. No hot water for first 24 hours and then insufficient for bathing. Cooker hob did not reach required temperature. Our friend in Rafters were more satisfied but none of us liked the upside down construction. This is usually done to make the mosr of the vews, but there wasn't any.

    My husband and I booked the rafters as it looked a little outdated but cosy and clean on the website, and the location was good- easy drive to the nearby beaches in North and not too far from the south of Cornwall. The property was a disappointment- On arrival there were cobwebs everywhere on the ceiling, dead spiders on top of the cupboard and dead beetles on the carpet. On our first night, we took out 11 huge spiders from different areas of the cottage, and no matter what the number of spiders and bugs increased on a daily basis. We were forced not to open any windows or doors to keep the bugs to the minimum. We had reported this to the owner however not much was done, hence I had to hoover the whole cottage and take out all the cob webs. I ended up with acute bronchitis due to dampness from staying at this cottage which was not a holiday my husband and I were looking for as a break before we have our baby. The property is quite outdated needs full renovation, has a small TV. We also booked this place as it was advertised it offers wifi connection, however we could hardly get any wifi. The games room had a snooker table that was not in a good condition and the sofas were filthy such that could not be used.
