The doors from the master bedroom open straight out to the garden - perfect for your morning coffee.
The property really makes the most of the wonderful view.

Outstanding location, amazing views and beautiful cottage.

August 2020

It’s all about the view at Skylight Barn, what a fantastic location and the lovely property was a bonus! We never revisit a cottage but can’t wait to come back here, we’re miss it the sea already!

August 2020

A gorgeous property in a fabulous location.

August 2020

The most serene and beautiful place to stay. We were sad to leave as we had such an amazing time in the Barn and in Coverack.

This is a fantastic cottage with incredible views in a wonderful location. We went there twice in less than two months, which tells you how much we enjoyed it.

Access is hard work, due to a longish walk up a path that gets steeper and steeper, but it's well worth it when you get there.

Equipment and furnishings are first class. Wood burning stove makes it incredibly cosy in the winter. And I can see us returning again and again. And again...

August 2019

We had a wonderful holiday at Skylight Barn in August. This is a unique property in a stunning location, We loved the views, walks to the village and along the coastal paths, swimming in the sea, kayaking and paddle-boarding. The owners were very thoughtful and left a welcome pack with tea, coffee and biscuits.

July 2019

We loved our stay at Skylight Barn. It was an amazing property with spectacular views. Having Mears Beach a 10 minute walk away was a real bonus. We would definitely stay again.

June 2019

The cottage sits on a hillside with wonderful views, it is an ideal getaway from the bustle of daily life.

March 2019

Beautifully located close to the coastal path with outstanding views. Local village stores with coffee shop warm and welcoming and Paris hotel a few minutes walk away, again very welcoming and warm with good food. A beautiful holiday home situated in a lovely village.

March 2019

Appointment and design of house appealed greatly to us. Views stunning no matter the weather. Changes of colour in sky and on the sea always interesting to watch. Even saw dolphins swim by. Property most comfortable and had everything necessary for an enjoyable stay from kitchen equipment to books and interesting range of childrens' games if needed.

Enjoyed reading the history of the property and seeing how the original stones were incorporated in the new building.

Fabulous retreat any time of the year!

February 2019

The cottage’s outstanding design enhanced the location’s beautiful situation. The generous appointments made our stay completely comfortable. It was a pleasure we won’t forget.

August 2018

Love Skylight Barn and love Coverack. Out 4th visit in 2 years!!

July 2018

Amazing property the quality of the contents such as the equipped kitchen, (everything you could need and all good quality), the finishing touches such as hand wash, welcome basket, flowers just made the stay feel like luxury. Thank you for an amazing holiday and really hope we can book for next year.

July 2018

The best equipped holiday let we have stayed in and with sea views to die for. A perfect week! Particularly enjoyed the audio quality of the Denon speakers when watching the Wimbledon final but me attention kept getting distracted to the 180degree sea views. Highly recommended.

May 2018

A real Cornish gem! True escapism with everything you could possibly need. Skylight Barn has an ‘away from it all’ feel yet with everything on your doorstep!

May 2018

Unique elevated property with magnificent sea views in a peaceful location making it a very relaxing holiday and in no hurry to leave it behind !

March 2018

Just the best place to stay. Coverack is the perfect secluded Cornish village. It has everything you could need or want and is perfect for families with children or if you just want to escape.

March 2018

The Seaview was excellent and we enjoyed to have a cup of tea at the terrace. Very relaxing place!

March 2018

Stunning cottage overlooking the sea. Makes you want to get up early in the morning to enjoy the view. Every comfort catered for, including a well stocked kitchen making it easy to cook a good meal in the evening as not a lot of eating options in Coverack when visiting out of season. We plan every year to visit another part of Cornwall but feel that there's nothing out their to rival this accommodation. We reserve in advance for the following year as soon as our holiday is over.

March 2018

A fabulous stay in a beautiful location. Accommodation of 5 star standard. Local hotel (Paris Hotel) excellent for warm welcome and lovely food. Can even provide Gluten free fish and chips. (Marvellous). Local general stores absolutely on the mark. Good quality local produce and even gluten free options available, little coffee area with open fire to sit and while away some time looking out to sea. Friendly, helpful and a joy to visit.

November 2017

We had an amazing time at Skylight Barn. We hoped that the barn lived up to the pictures we had been sent and were delighted that it was better than the pictures! One of the nicest cottages we have ever stayed at. Really well equipped and the view will stay with us for a long time!

September 2017

A wonderful place and a real gem in the beautiful Coverack. We are already booked up twice next year and can not wait.

As ever, everything was just perfect. We absolutely love Skylight Barn....

February 2017

One of the loveliest places the two of us have ever stayed at.

December 2016

Skylight Barn was one of the best situated houses we've stayed in. We seek out exceptional properties around the World and Skylight Barn was definitely up there with the best of them.

October 2016

Fantastic location. Amazing views. Awesome log burner. Great variety of games/books for young children. Brilliantly equipped with everything you could need during your stay. Real home from home.

September 2016

The views are fabulous, its peaceful and the 'Paris' is a great place to enjoy an evening tipple, meal or pub quiz before heading up the coastal path to Skylight Barn.

May 2016

Excellent location, beautifully designed with great attention to detail

April 2016

We love it here. Everything is perfect. This was our 10th visit!

April 2016

Wonderful cottage with great views, equipment, and furnishings.

March 2016

A lovely cottage with spectacular views, even better than the photos show now the trees in front of the balcony have been cut back. You need to be young or fit to get your luggage, groceries and logs up the pretty steep hill to the property but it's definitely worth the effort.

We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Skylight Barn - the location is both unusual and spectacular as you found! We're in the process of updating all the photos (weather, seasons and sunlight dependent unfortunately!) so a new shot of the improved view will be available soon. Tanya, Customer Support

January 2016

The location and views for this cottage are wonderful. No need to go out for coffee etc.

December 2015

The cottage is in a fantastic position with stunning views over Coverack and the sea. We had a really nice week and every attention to detail has been thought of in the cottage. I would certainly recommend it for a peaceful and tranquil retreat.

August 2015

This was an the most amazing place to stay...even with the steep hill up to the cottage! There was nothing that hadn't been thought about, down to sandwich bags and washing capsules. We all relaxed so much and already miss waking up to the sound of the sea and the Cornish sun streaming through the windows. We can't wait to come back...hopefully permanently one day!

July 2015

Owners have thought of everything to ensure our stay was perfect. We want to live here!

June 2015

Fantastic holiday home, could not ask for better, well furnished and well equiped. Just loved it.

April 2015

Such a clean, well equipped, and welcoming cottage, made for a wonderful stay for all the family. The views are amazing, and the village of Coverack is so idyllic for a relaxing stay.

March 2015

We always look to stay in self catering accommodation which has something special, Skylight barn was the best.

March 2015

Stunning cosy barn in a peaceful setting - just what we needed. Cant wait to be back there.

January 2015

This cottage was the perfect location for a quite getaway with plenty of places to visit and places to eat within easy distance. The situation of the cottage also means that there is plenty to watch if you just want to stay in.

February 2014

This was simply the most fantastic cottage. We loved the peace and quiet, amazing views and cosy fire while we watched the waves as the storms raged outside. There is nothing you could have wished for - everything is perfect.. Can't wait to return .

December 2013

if you want to get away from it all then this is the place to go

November 2013

You won't be disappointed with Skylight Barn. The location, views and facilities are excellent. Little touches like flowers in a vase and cornish biscuits for guests on arrival, make all the difference.

September 2013

Warm, welcoming, very comfortable & extremely well equiped. Fantastic location - a steep approach with parking some way off, as described. Two trolleys provided to facilitate movement of luggage. Overall, well worth the effort, & it's going to be a difficult act to follow.

July 2013

I would thoroughly recommend Skylight Barn - the accomodation is excellent and the setting is glorious.
