If you’re looking for a holiday cottage central to a vast amount of Cornwall's highlights altho in a picturesque peaceful rural location. Then I would recommend this cottage.

Lovley pretty quirky barn in a quiet rural setting. Spotlessly clean and a lovley cream tea to welcome us . Pretty courtyard garden but loses the sun late afternoon and sets behind the adjoining owners cottage . Not far from st ives and other places but need a car . Couple of pubs nearby but road to busy to walk along . Lovley walks around st ives , Landsend, Sennan Cove.

Nice and cozy

Peaceful and quiet but you have to drive to get anywhere to far away to walk !

we'll be back, dont want to miss out on other occasions

Excellent accommodation, perfect location & everything you need for a weeks stay, can’t wait to come back in summer! Super friendly hosts also, thank you!

A very enjoyable stay at Bay Tree Barn. It is a lovely barn and Kim and Mike are very welcoming owners.

We really enjoyed our stay at Bay Tree Barn. We were given a very warm welcome and had everything we needed. We would definitely recommend it for a cosy, rural getaway.

The wifi connection was intermittent. I suppose this is due to the location and wall being made of stone. A solution will be to have a router in the living space to increase connectivity. If course, this would not be a problem if you are looking to disconnect from the world.

Ideal holiday accommodation for a couple of any age

This was our second stay here. Absolutely love the area and the cottage is so cosy, a tranquil base for exploring the coastal pathways and beaches. Kim and Mike are great hosts and really helpful with suggestions when needed. A fabulous stay again!

A peaceful cosy cottage in a good location, ideal for day trips to the beautiful cornish coastline.

Not a place for us

Beautifully appointed and very tastefully decorated barn. Needed nothing extra, everything provided. Lovely hosts. Thank you!!

the owners were very helpful and made us fill very welcome

A wonderful retreat. Quiet setting; near St. Ives, Carbis Bay, Hayle and Lelant and also in perfect reach of major roads and routes to many other towns, villages and walking routes.

A very warm welcome, with cream tea. Thank you Kim, Mike and Finlay for such a delightful holiday. We hope to return.

A lovely snug well designed and decorated barn in an excellent location near St Ives but nicely off the beaten track, with easy access to all the sites worth visiting. Helpful and welcoming hosts live next door.

Beautiful, charming and cosy cottage in a great location close to St Ives and for travelling around south Cornwall. Hosts were very friendly and welcoming. Had everything we needed in the cottage. Highly recommended!

Beautiful location..... beautiful landscape...... kind and thoughtful owners.

A perfectly formed cottage with absolutely everything you may need. The feel of the property is something that you can't really capture in a photo but if you could this is what would really make Bay Tree Cottage stand out and shine. We loved it so much, we had a couple of days just staying in, chilling, reading and listening to music. After a hard day sightseeing, eating icecream and walking on beaches, it was a absolute delight to return to. A real credit to the owners Kim and Mike. A little slice of paradise in a beautiful Cornish setting. We utterly adored it. Thank you.

Lovely secluded self-contained cottage, very well located for some of the best bits Cornwall has to offer.

Very close to all beautiful sights and spots, beaches and locations which are worth a visit. But a car is recommendable. Although in high season there is a bus going directly from the entrance of the property to St. Ives. Very helpful and friendly hosts. We thorougly enjoyed our stay. Hope to see you again soon.

Perfect Holiday - we will come back!!!

Had a wonderful time, everything as I would have wished, enjoyed walking in the area and going into St Ives and to Penzance. Very helpful and friendly owners.

Great as usual but a few areas needed adjusting before the full 5 stars!

Thanks for taking the time to review the cottage. We've passed your comments onto the Owners so that they can investigate the leaky tap. Tanya, Customer Support

This is the perfect place for a peaceful and relaxing holiday yet within easy reach of all West Cornwall has to offer.

Excellent location.

Fantastic little cottage - perfect for a couple or individual needing a retreat.

Lovely cottage in a great location for exploring Cornwall.

We have now stayed here 4 times and it's always wonderful. The owners are always very welcoming and couldn't be more helpful. It's a perfect getaway and great location. We will return.

perfect for two and just enough distance from the hustle and bustle of St Ives. Owners were friendly anda cream tea was waiting for us when we arrived. Hope to go back to Bay tree barn another time...missing Cornwall already!

Very friendly and helpful hosts!! Very nice and quiet location.


Exceeded our expectations, the pictures do not do the property justice.

A lovely comfortable open plan cottage at the heart of the area.

A perfect retreat for two in a great location for exploring Cornwall.

We really liked the well reasoned and tasteful furnishings. The owner family is very kindly.

Perfect cottage and excellent hosts!!!! Thank you Kim, Mike, Finlay and Willow!!! We will come back; take care!!!
