Customers’ Choice Award 2018
After a day of exploring the Cornish coastal resorts, relax with a well earned BBQ on the terrace, whilst amiring the country views.

This converted old working barn has been transformed into stylish and contemporary accommodation. The views across the valley can be seen from the house and the large terrace where you can enjoy al fresco breakfasts or evening BBQs. The village of Polgooth, with its local shop and excellent country pub that serves local ales and home cooked food, is close to Cornwall’s tranquil south coast but within easy reach of the more dramatic north coast.
Close to the remarkable Lost Gardens of Heligan, Caerhays Castle and the Eden Project, this comfortable home is the perfect place to stay for touring Cornwall. There are golden beaches, country walks, cycle trails and quaint Cornish fishing villages that cling to the dramatic coastline, just minutes away. The cycle trail at Pentewan enables you to cycle to the Lost Gardens of Heligan and even link up for a longer ride to the Eden Project.
The seafaring town of Fowey can be reached by ferry from nearby Mevagissey and is a must for all that visit. Charlestown, home to sailing ships, has some excellent shops, pubs and restaurants, and is a World Heritage Site. You can take a walk from the barn to country pubs and restaurants. There are spas and farm shops locally, along with many open gardens that are especially attractive in the spring, from Caerhays Castle to Pine Lodge Gardens. Horse riding, sailing, cycling and sea fishing are all available nearby. Beach 2 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    Arrived to a warm welcome by the owner of the property, first impressions of the barn were of a very high standard throughout, attention to detail was given to make this property a first class holiday rental. The barn was very well presented and had everything that you needed for your stay and make to feel a real home from home accommodation. We all enjoyed the weeks stay here, weather not too bad, and the two pub meals that we went for we would highly recommend, one in Polgooth Inn and the other The Hewas Inn in Sticker. We enjoyed what Cornwall had to offer and enjoyed the various day's out that we had planned. Hope to return back to the barn soon.

    Tremendous place to stay, the barn is beautiful and has everything you will need to enjoy your stay. The view from the living area is magnicient (even on a rainy day) and the owners are two of the friendliest people you will meet. The location is perfect to use as a base to explore Cornwall and you will have to look very hard to find a more friendly local oub than the Polgooth Arms which is only a few minutes drive down the road. Charlestown is also a 15 min drive away and is a must see especially for Poldark fans. If you want a perfect place to stay in Cornwall this is the place.

    It was a peaceful retreat, Owners very welcoming but not intrusive. Very comfortable, beautiful views of countryside with horses in the field next door, and an ideal base if your going to Eden Project and lost gardens of Heligan, Pub down the road Polgooth Inn was very nice, 10 min walk, but up hill on way home. Supermarkets 10 mins away but has local shop a few minutes away by pub. Free wifi a bonus to find best beaches.

    Vian's Barn has been beautifully designed and everything is top quality and immaculate. A bit more crockery and cutlery would have been useful, but apart from that it was perfect.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for booking to stay at Vian’s barn and for your review. We are sorry you felt the beds were smaller than you expected, however we do feel it is important for future guests to be aware that the double bed is a standard 4ft 6 and the twin beds are standard 3ft each and quality beds for use by adults and children. We are sorry you couldn’t find one or two items of kitchenware, wish you had come to ask for these. We always aim to make sure that all utensils are in the property. A BBQ is available for sole use of the property guests, however due to the inclement weather it was not outside at the time of your arrival.
