Little Barn provides the perfect base for a relaxing country holiday.

These four beautiful self-catering holiday cottages (refs: W43191, W43192, W43193, W43194) and a studio (ref: W43195) are situated just 2 miles from the pretty, picturesque village of St Agnes and just minutes from the dramatic North Cornish Coast. Property refs W43191 and W43192 can be booked together to accommodate upto 13 guests. Bannsvale Barn (W43193) and Little Barn (W43193) are situated in the front courtyard area with access to the large gardens, paddocks, fields, children’s play equipment, animals and woodland walk through a pedestrian gateway. Peacefully set in a wooded valley next to a footpath alongside a stream, 11/2 miles from Porthtowan, these delightful properties, set in beautifully landscaped gardens, are ideally located for touring the whole of Cornwall and are perfect for a relaxing country holiday. Mount Hawke is a small village with a local shop, but for a wider choice, take a trip to St Agnes or Truro, the county capital, with Gothic cathedral, cinema, theatre, restaurants, individual shops and indoor market. St Agnes boasts many cafés, restaurants, craft shops and galleries. An ideal centre for walking and exploring the Cornish coastline, cliffs and coves with an abundance of wildlife including porpoises and dolphins. Visitors will be spoilt for choice with beaches including Porthtowan, Trevellas Warren, Portreath and a little further afield, Perranporth with its beach bar right on the sand. The Eden Project near St Austell, Maritime Museum at Falmouth, Newquay Sealife Centre, Flambards Theme Park, Towan’s Miniature Railway and numerous National Trust properties are all easily reached and provide a great day out for the family. The coast road that runs west towards St Ives is a must with many sweeping beaches, quiet coves and coastal villages that make up this enchanting area of Cornwall. Horse riding, golf, surfing, sea fishing and cycling are all available close by. Shop 700 yards, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    Sorry to say that this cottage looked nothing like the advertisement. It was very tired looking on the outside and was in a dark valley. The garden which promised much was around the back and the only window was at the front, so no view of it and you had to go through a gate to the other cottages to access it. Kitchen area was good, clean and well equipped. Bathroom tiny but clean. However, the main room with kitchen at the back was grubby with dusty cobwebs, with a smelly mat on the floor and loose wires hanging from the TV to the plug which was overloaded on an adapter. Very dangerous with a dog in the cottage. We had a five foot bed with a 4 foot six inch quilt cover on it. The mattress on it was appalling - rather like springs covered with fabric- we measured the bed as owner disputed the size and said there was a foam mattress on it. The owner's response to be fair, was immediate and on our return to the property, the rug had been cleaned and we had a good thick mattress and a larger quilt on the bed. However, this did not make up for the dark dismal feeling in the cottage - the leather sofa had no comfort as you slid forward off it all the time. The hoover was useless so that was perhaps an excuse for the cleaner - it had no brushes - just a suction nozzle. We failed to clean our dog's hair off the rug before we left as it was impossible with the hoover prvided. Sad to say this was the worst cottage we have ever stayed in - we were in this business ourselves in Cornwall before retirement and our standard was so high - like most cottages in Cornwall. Needs to have a photo of the outside that isn't many years old .......oh dear. We left two days early. Not recommended.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for taking the time to write a review. However, I would confirm the bed is indeed a standard double and had a double duvet. As per your request I immediately provided a new double mattress and king size duvet to accommodate you, although the original mattress was in very good condition, however not every mattress suits every guest. The properties are all advertised as being in a wooded valley - therefore the presence of trees and woodland should not have come as a surprise. I am indeed sorry that you rented an inappropriate cottage for your requirements - and I feel sure that one of my larger properties within the gardens would have fully met your expectations. I try very hard to ensure guests have the best holiday I can provide and I do take such comments personally. I can only say that no matter how much I provide I cannot please everyone all of the time. Fortunately, most of my guests are delighted with the setting and surroundings and are entirely happy. I would also mention that I have recently had a full inspection and grading and have had no adverse comments or any advisories.

    Lovely proprietors, very clean and comfortable accommodation. Our only disappointment was there was no back door or windows to the property so consequently no veiw or direct access to the communal gardens. I think this aspect is misleading in the details and needs to be a little clearer. However there is a gateway to the gardens from the car park.

    Lovely cottage, great value for money. Owners (Joyce & Peter) are very helpful, friendly, welcoming & very accommodating. Will most definitely be returning. Would highly recommend.

    Had a lovely week in Cornwall with our dog. There are some great walks around. We had no problems cooking several meals in the fairly well stocked kitchen. Will definitely be recommending Bannsvale Farm Cottages to friends and family.
