Had a lovely stay. Comfortable cottage in an excellent central location.

We loved our four day break at Bay Tree, it was so quiet and peaceful. The farmhouse very clean and comfortabke. Wish it had been for longer. The icing on the cake was to see a deer stroll down the drive, right past our bedroom window, early morning on the day we came home, perfect !!

This is one of the best properties we have stayed in. The owners are very welcoming, friendly and helpful with local information. Really good location for visiting both North and South Cornwall. Good local amenities. Hopefully we will be able to return at some future date.

A lovely and very comfortable house for family of 5 plus dog. It had everything you could need for a great holiday. A brilliant location, so quiet and peaceful, yet so close to everything Cornwall has to offer. Very friendly and helpful hosts. Would highly recommend and would love to go back.

Charming, comfortable cottage in a peaceful, rural location. The owners are lovely people and provided plenty of useful advice. Nothing at all within walking distance other than cows, but loads to see and do in the area. Highly recommended.

This is a charming property, beautifully peaceful and surrounded by greenery but within easy access of local shops and the coast.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Bay Tree Farmhouse and its idyllic setting. It's located within easy reach of a range of beaches. Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan are very near. It's perfectly located for getting to know Cornwall, with its central location. The owners were very helpful and friendly but kept a polite distance. We appreciated the lovely little touches on arrival. It was hard to leave and we would love to return.

It was one of the most comfortable, welcoming and clean houses we have stayed in. It was a home from home and a good place to reach all of north and south Cornwall very easily.

Excellent house in a quiet location. The owners were great, came round to check that everything was ok when we arrived. Everything we needed was provided. Only issue was poor broadband but this meant that we could switch off fully. (4G worked great as a backup so you won't be completely cut off). Beds are lovely and comfortable.

Delightful break away fabulous orchard picked our apples for comforting baked apples thank you ??

Excellent house in fabulous quiet location. Everything we needed was there and owners were very welcoming. Only issue was poor wifi but this made for a nice quiet holiday where we could switch off fully. Great walks from house which was ideal for us as we had our puppy with us. Would definately revisit.

We consider it as a home from home.

A lovely house in a great location. Spacious, comfortable, and well-equipped. Lovely farm location and peaceful front garden. Owners are friendly and helpful, but the house is very private. The whole family enjoyed our stay at Bay Tree and we will undoubtedly return.

Idealic location for anyone looking for a reclusive country holiday.

Superb cottage - very well equipped & very comfortable, lovely hosts - very helpful, we will definitely be back!

Bay tree cottage felt like a home from home so comfortable and welcoming.We loved the peace and quiet. Mary and Keith you will be seeing us again and we will bring the rest of the family next time

We're so pleased you enjoyed your break in this beautiful spot - we know the lovely owners will be over the moon to welcome you back again! Tanya, Customer Support

We had an amazing week in this cottage. It felt so homely, warm and tranquil. We loved the treats waiting for us! A quiet spot with great access to many places. We could not fault it & wouldn't hesitate to return.

This is a beautiful spot. In the heart of Cornwall with walks from the door this was a wonderful place for a family with a dog . Very spacious and really well equipped. Hosts are fantastic, welcoming and helpful. We loved this cottage so much we’re planning our next trip. Highly recommend

Mary and Keith were extremely friendly, and very welcoming of our little one. The stairgates, high chair, travel cot, baby cutlery and crockery, and rubber ducks were all very much appreciated! As were the slightly more grown up treats we found on arrival :) The house is extremely cosy, and in an idyllic setting - we loved meeting the three week old calves! We had fun trying to cook on the Rayburn (thank goodness for the back up electric cooker!), and loved coming back after each of our busy days out and about to such a home-from-home.

A lovely country property with great access to the Roseland Peninsular

A superb farmhouse, very comfortable and with everything you need. Would be wonderful for family holidays with plenty of space.

Wifi is very poor Comfortable & cosy cottage

Thanks for reviewing Bay Tree Farmhouse. We're sorry that you had some trouble with the WiFi. Although there has not been an issue with the service before, the owners are going to check at the next changeover. Our offices are also open seven days a week to assist with any issues should you have needed any help. Bryony, Customer Support

Always made to feel welcome every time we return, it is like a home from home.

This farmhouse is stunning, the owners are friendly and it exceeded my expectations massively. Size, location, layout, items and equipment provided, this farmhouse has it all and it looks stunning from the outside.

Excellent well equipped cottage in a beautiful setting

We had a lovely stay in Bay Tree Farmhouse. The owner was very welcoming and helpful. The house is beautiful and located in very peaceful countryside. We had quite a big group (five adults, two children and a dog) but there was still plenty of room and we all felt comfortable. The items provided for our one year old and three year old were great (highchair, travel cot, steps). Highly recommend!

A very comfortable, functional and very well equipped Farmhouse, with constant hot water, and spacious and light bright rooms.

The most relaxing holiday ever. Suits all ages and the dog. Nearby pubs and dog friendly beach at Par. Lovely stay in a cottage where the owner had thought of everything. Even provided towels for the dog.

A very comfortable cottage in a tranquil position with country views. Well placed for the beaches south and north Cornwall. Owners very helpful.

If ever Keith and Mary wish to sell the farm house, let us have first refusal please.

Superb tranquil location, such a homely feel, warm welcome from Keith and Mary.

Relatively isolated, ideal for quite holiday, well situated for Lost Gardens Of Heligan and Eden Project.

Had a lovely week at Bay Tree Farmhouse.Ideal for those seeking peace and quiet. The location makes it ideal for exploring all of Cornwall.

A beautiful property in an ideal location to visit our favourite places in Cornwall. Mary and Keith are very welcoming owners. Hope to see you again next year!

If you want to get away from everyday stresses this is the cottage for you. Safe for children to play apart from the pond. Owners friendly and helpful.

We absolutely loved everything about Bay Tree Cottage. It is the most lovely house in a beautiful setting and has a very homely feel. Keith and Mary made us so welcome and were very helpful when we left something behind. We found it to be perfect in every way and have recommended it to family and friends. We hope to return again soon.

Lovely, comfortable farmhouse in a tranquil setting. Safe front garden for small children. The Rayburn in the kitchen kept the house warm and provided plenty of hot water. Lots of space for 4 adults and 2 children plus toys for the children and plenty of books if the weather was bad. Close proximity to attractions such as Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, Mevagissey and beaches. The owners live next door and are very obliging and gave us a warm welcome.One of the best cottages that we have been to and would definitely book again if we were holidaying in the area.

We had a very pleasant stay, the warm welcome, the beautiful garden and surroundings made us feel at home. We plan to come back here again some day.

The description did not come near describing how wonderful this property is !! Just to explain - Based on the description in the brochure the property far exceeded our expectations ! I would describe it as stunning - there are far more facilities than we expected. It was wonderful, we did not want to leave ! I've already passed on the details to three of my friends and you can be sure I will be back ! We wanted peace, quiet and privacy and we got all three in abundance ! This property is simply superb. The owners were there to meet us and to attend to our needs whilst affording the privacy we craved. Despite this it is close enough to every facility we needed. Lovely. Thank you too to you at Classic Cottages for making the booking process so easy. Everyone I spoke to was so helpful and obliging, you really helped us to have a perfect break.

Thank you so much for your glowing review - we're delighted to see that you enjoyed your stay at this lovely property so much, and look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. Tanya, Customer Support

The owners were the most friendliest people that we have had the pleasure of meeting. They were accomadating and couldn't help us enough. We loved Baytree farmhouse, so quiet away from everyday hustle and bustle. The garden was big enough for us and the children to play badminton in!!

We had a fabulous time and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bay Tree Cottage. The attention to detail was very evident with lots of lovely touches and levels of equipment. Of note, our baby and dog were both well catered for. The location was perfect for the peace and quiet we wanted but close enough to key attractions. We would readily return.

Very happy with our stay. Immediately the property felt like home. Would definitely want to come back.

Bay Tree cottage is a great place for families looking for a quiet away from it all retreat. Being built in the late 19th century it is an old cottage, retaining many original features, which many people will enjoy.

A wonderful, homely farmhouse that is spacious and comfortable which has everything you need to have a fabulous holiday. A very friendly owner who was very welcoming and helpful, who also makes the most wonderful cakes! :-)

Everything suited us perfectly.

A wonderful cottage for families, excellent location within easy distance of many attractions.Owners very helpful

This is a wonderful place to stay to explore Cornwall. It' very quiet and relaxing away from the hussle and bustle and you can see the stars at night. The cottage has everything you will need and is great for hide and seek. Lots of bedrooms make it easy with a mixed group.

Our family have been going to the farm house for a number of years now and we never tire of the welcome and friendliness of Keith and Mary. It is like visiting old friends.

This was the perfect holiday home with everything thought of which could possibly be wanted. The owners were welcoming and the house warm and comfortable. We would consider booking Bay Tree Farmhouse again if our path leads to Truro again.

Spacious and comfortable. Ideal for a quiet away from it all holiday. We will be returning.

A lovely, well-equipped property in a peaceful location, with very welcoming hosts.
