    Mendennick Barn itself is set in a lovely location not too far from Torpoint with lovely views but has to be said not the best road to reach it. Typical Cornish road but much worse that any other we have ever encountered(and we used to live in Cornwall). Actually found a longer larger route to take rather than face driving from cottage down to St John then onto Torpoint. Local Taxi firm don't even like to use this road. It's a must to drive here and not be reliant on public transport or walking anywhere from cottage as dangerous roads. Also a small but well used road runs quite close by to cottage, so there is some road noise. Cottage itself was very well equipped although is slightly dated in décor. It could also do with some wifi for the younger guests and a bigger TV in livingroom. There is a stove in the livingroom but no instructions on use, just a note to contact owner to come light it. We didn't want to bother them as we were aware they were busy with lambing. Very clean though well equipped and a lovely Cornish cream tea on the table for us on arrival which is a lovely touch. Lots of info for local ferries etc but unfortunately a lot of the leaflets etc are well out of date/not accurate. Lovely property but due to access roads we wouldn't use again.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We would like to make clear to our future guests that we are in a rural location and some of the lanes around and throughout a lot of Cornwall here are probably narrower than most people are used to. However, saying that we do have tractors and agricultural vehicles that do manage very well. The roads around the barn location and the little village of St John are country lanes, wide enough to take a tractor so should be OK for most car drivers. There are passing places periodically so if you do encounter another vehicle you should only have to reverse a very short distance. Unfortunately we are not on a bus route or main road so yes you do really need a car to get around and explore the lovely countryside and beaches we have on our doorstep. There is a little lane that skirts the driveway and the garden but this is not a particularly busy or noisy lane and vehicles do not travel at speed along here as it is narrow and winding, as is a typical country lane. Being in such a rural location, it is very difficult to get internet connection here, we tend to find that most of our guests like to get away from that but it is something we are looking into. We will take a look at the information leaflets and check they are still OK. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
