It´s a real lovely and beautiful cottage with lots of space and light, really tasteful interior, perfect kitchenequipment and shower and a wonderful garden. Some steps behind the garden begins a footpath for great walks to the moors and the sea. We really enjoyed our stay fully and were very happy! Thank you very much! Mrs. Holz, Germany

Sixpenny Barn was by far the best property we have visited in a quiet peaceful location. It is very well equipped and tastefully furnished with luxury towels and bedding which all gave a home from home feel, everything we needed had been catered for. There is plenty of wardrobe and drawer space which for us was a bonus as it can be lacking in some properties. The garden was very pretty and it was lovely to sit outside with a coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. As soon as we walked into the barn we felt at home, we wished our stay could have been longer and would thoroughly recommend and hope to return again soon. Mr & Mrs Montgomery

Beautiful Cottage ,really comfortable with everything you need for a lovely holiday , great base to explore the surrounding area. Lovely outside space and garden including a summerhouse.

Beautiful cottage in a peaceful hamlet.

Sixpenny Barn is a superb property, the owner has given great thought to the decor and attention to detail, and there is a pretty garden with a summerhouse. A welcome basket with some lovely goodies was much appreciated, and such a nice touch. The location is excellent for visiting lots of different places, a beach is not too far way, plus local amenities. We loved staying in the barn so much that we are returning next June and September, and we can't wait!

We love Sixpenny Barn. Beautifully furnished, gorgeous sunny garden whatever the time of day and so peaceful. We can’t wait to come again!

Classic cottages' website is excellent. We've been booking holidays through this company for years. We trust them completely. What you see is what you get!

When you enjoy the quiet in the countryside, then come to this place.

It's s ideal to slow down and feel time how it's "stops". The barn is wonderfully converted into a modern place - not seen from the outside.

Lovely part of Cornwall to stay close to major roads but very quiet. Cottage excellent would go back again.

Immaculate cottage in a wonderful setting, perfect for a couple or for a family of 3, you do need a car to get about to see all the stunning sights. Everything you need is in the cottage from hairdryer to hoover, washing machine to full size cooker along with every kitchen utensil you can think of.

Beautifully furnished, comfortable and really well equipped, Sixpenny Barn was such a find. Up the lane to a small hamlet, it was wonderfully peaceful, with a bridleway leading to some lovely walks. The garden was delightful for that early morning coffee and the garden room perfect if it was a little chilly. Ideal location for exploring the amazing local beaches (Porthcurno, Perranuthnoe, Sennen), for fabulous costal path walks (Zennor, Gurnards Head) and the delights of Newlyn and Mousehole. Highly recommended.

This barn is out of the way which is wonderful if you like walking and quiet spaces. It is glorious in the secluded garden and if it gets chilly move into the sun house which is a sun trap. The small hamlet is very friendly and the local farm sells fresh eggs otherwise there are plenty of shops and stores en route from Penzance.

Another wonderful stay at Sixpenny Barn! Spotlessly clean and everything we needed for our stay, just as before. The fresh flowers and locally made treats are such a thoughtful welcome gift from Sarah the owner. Perfect location for exploring and certainly our favourite cottage to stay in…we will be back!

An absolute gem in a quiet location away from it all yet close to the north and south coast. A joy.

This was our second stay at Sixpenny Barn and like before it exceeded our expectations. Everything was clean and tidy. Little touches of essentials including some yummy biscuits were most welcome after our journey. Great location for exploring Cornwall, we visited St Ives, Gwithian, Portreath, Perranporth, Mousehole & Lands End. When you return to this lovely cottage, it really feels like home from home. Thank you for a wonderful winter break, we feel truly rested.

Gorgeous cottage with great secure garden. Very quiet and peaceful. Good location for north and south coast. Amazing coastal path walks and stunning beaches. Our weather for October was amazing and really made the holiday excellent. Will be back next year.

Absolutely excellent property, one of the best we've ever stayed in. Really, really, nice cosy warm cottage.

Sixpenny Barn is an exceptional holiday cottage - beautifully converted, comfortably furnished, an immaculately maintained garden, and an away from it all location while being quick to get to the coast. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

As someone who provides holiday accomodation in France I was more than impressed with Sixpenny Barn. Without doubt, the standard of both cleanliness and decoraration was superb. Also, the tranquil location was excellent, within easy reach of both Penzance and St. Ives. I wholeheartedly recommend this property and hope to visit again.

This year was our third time in this cottage, and this year was the time of COVID-19. The cottage was immaculate and there were clear details about use of sanitiser (a bottle of which was visible immediately on entry), keeping the cottage well ventilated and what to do with dirty linen at the end of our stay.

The cottage itself is the best that we have ever stayed in. It is very tastefully furnished and decorated, full of light and very comfortable. It has a beautiful garden with a summer house, clothes line and seats. The road is a track which ends just beyond the property with very occasional local cars, and horses are walked by several times a day. There is a path onto the moorland with a burial chamber 20 minutes walk away (Mulfra Quoit). It is very peaceful and relaxing, whilst also being only a 20 minute drive from Penzance and all its amenities (including a large Sainsbury's. There is so much to visit locally. We love the area and the cottage.

We have had a wonderful stay at Sixpenny Barn. Even Storm Dennis didn't dampen our enjoyment as the property is so comfortable it was actually a pleasure to stay in! Spotlessly clean, well equipped and stylishly but sympathetically decorated, we can't wait to come back in the better weather so that we can really make the most of the wonderful location and the beautiful garden.

A truly amazing cottage which fully met our expectations. A home from home, lovely and clean with plenty of equipment, all in good working order! Fixtures and furnishings were exceptional. One of the best cottages we have stayed in our 30 years of renting holiday homes. Great care has been taken to produce this excellent holiday cottage.

Wonderfully furnished and well equipped gem of a cottage.

This was our 2nd stay at Sixpenny Barn and it was excellent the first time round so it is was so good to see that it was equally as good the 2nd time. In actual fact it was probably even better (if that is possible) as you can clearly see that the owner is continually updating and upgrading the property to make improvements all the time. It is so nice to go somewhere and feel totally comfortable because the place is so clean. Brilliantly clean, beautifuly stylish, very comfortable and continually being improved.

sixpenny barn was the best holiday accommodation I have ever stayed in - spotlessly clean, beautifully and thoughtfully furnished and equipped, comfortable beds, sofa, easy chairs, a lovely garden and in a quiet location.

Modern, well finished barn conversation that meet all expectations. Very clean & very well equipped.

A perfect cottage for a family or couple, close to all the attractions and places to visit in the area. Thoroughly recommended.

It's the second time we've stayed at Sixpenny barn and it's a wee slice of heaven! Perfect location for us - amazing walks right from your doorstep, quiet, but near everything we want to do. And the place itself is gorgeous - small but perfectly proportioned, stylishly decorated and wonderfully comfortable. Hopefully we'll be back soon!

We had a great stay. This is a Holiday Cottage at it's best!!! Highly recommanded! We met the host Sarah, a potter from St. Ives, she was very kind and cared for everything! Conny + Lars

A lovely cottage in a beautiful quiet location with great walks from the door.

This is the most stylish, cosy, comfortable and CLEANEST rental I have ever stayed in, I wish all of them could be this good. Nice goodies left for us by the owner too. Cannot wait to go back.

Cosy and very well equipped, good shower

A gorgeous home from home gem of a cottage which has been modernised whilst keeping a traditional feel with lots of lovely touches.It is however in a very remote location which may suit/not suit your needs depending on the type of holiday you are looking for so definitely worth considering.

It was obvious that the owner looked after it with great care. the equipment was obviously quite new too We enjoyed the garden too (excellent weather)

A beautiful place, clean comfortable in good location, with a lovely garden & summer house in which to enjoy the peace & tranquillity of Mulfra, but close to Penzance & St. Ives if you wish to enjoy the beach, bars, resturants & shops.

Second visit to this lovely property in a fabulous part of Cornwall. The cottage is very tastefully decorated and comes equipped with almost everything you could want - even down to wind up torches should the power fail !.
We had a relaxing and enjoyable stay and will definitely want to visit again. The cottage is a great credit to the owner, Sarah

Sixpenny Barn is a beautifully renovated granite barn. The location (which we knew well, having stayed for B&B at farm across the lane for some years) is a very peaceful and beautiful location, in a small hamlet high on the West Penwith moors. It is a good place for walks or just relaxing. Some may find it a bit remote as there is travelling to do for supplies - which has to be borne in mind. But it's only a few minutes by car to, say, Penzance or St.Ives. There are no shops nor other facilities nearby. There is an infrequent bus service at the bottom of the lane at the hamlet of New Mill, 3/4 mile. As long as these matters are understood then the cottage is very recommendable for a holiday. In fact the location itself is a main reason for choosing it. It is not perhaps a suitable place travelling to some of the areas and locations which you recommended and suggested, being rather a long way.

We're delighted to hear that you liked the property and its peaceful rural location. We appreciate that the roads in this part of West Cornwall are windy and narrow, sometimes making the journey feel longer. The location of the attractions listed on our website are intended as a guide only and distances are 'as the crow flies' but you can get a good idea of the surrounding area from the interactive map shown on the 'Explore Nearby' tab.

An absolute gem of a property, beautifully furnished and equipped.

Great location for fans of dogs and horses. A real escape for a relaxing and comfortable holiday.

Lovely cottage in such a peaceful setting, cosy, warm and clean. Dogs loved the garden!

we enjoyed every detail of this wonderful place from the moment we opened the door. we felt really at home whenever we returned from our athmospheric tours to the area. the location is remote but idyllic and we appreciated both walking tours starting at the garden door, e.g. to very recommendable gurnard's head, and exploring the greater region. we will love to come back to cornwall and to the sixpenny barn!

A wonderful rustic cottage, very peaceful, good local walks. Garden was a lovely addition, cottage finished to a very high standard with all the equipment you need for your stay. If we come back to West Cornwall, this will be the only place we would stay.

A perfect little hideaway with fantastic attention to detail and comfortable furnishings. Peaceful location in a small hamlet, near to towns and villages for exploration and discovery. We had an amazing holiday and can't wait to return!

Sixpenny Barn is situated in an ideal location for visiting this part of Cornwall, within easy reach of St Ives, Lands End, The Lizard and St Michaels Mount. The property is immaculately decorated and is tucked away in a lovely quiet spot for a relaxing holiday in 'Poldark Country'.

Location, location, location as they say - Cornwall, tick; Mulfra, tick; Sixpenny Barn, tick. Really well presented and comfortable property, well equipped kitchen. Great walking from the back of the property and only a short drive to Penzance, St Ives and surrounding area. I was very tempted to squat, one of those places when you go through the front door you think. I could actually live here Great holiday, I really rate Classic Cottages for the brilliant quality properties they have on their books, this is my second booking with them and I am already looking for my next stay in one of their properties Keep up the good work

Just the most perfect holiday barn. Beautiful decor, spotless, warm, comfortable plus an enclosed, pretty, well tended garden. Ideal location for exploring the Far West. Thank you

We had a lovely break at Sixpenny Barn. The cottage was spotlessly clean, very stylish and comfortable. Very pretty garden which we enjoyed sitting out in, even in November!! Surrounding countryside very pretty. Lovely walks from the door. Highly recommended!

Beautiful cottage equipped for everything you need and more!

Our third time at this lovely cottage. The garden is a delight. We were made to feel really welcome with wine and biscuits. Our dog loves it here.

A lovely modern, well equipped cottage in a magical location. Supermarkets within easy reach but when you are at the cottage it's perfect country peace and quiet, with lovely walks on the doorstep. Just lovely. Please can we come back soon.

Super holiday cottage and good value

Sixpenny Barn is a delightful property which has been finished to a very high standard and is ideally located for exploring the many places of interest to be found in the far west of Cornwall.

Lovely cottage in the countryside. Spacious, comfortable, modern, welll equipped. Perfect for a week of relaxation and sight-seeing. Definately recommended!

Beautiful cottage, fabulously restored and decorated. Moving a couple of miles inland gives you a parking space, a lovely garden and peace and quiet (no seagulls!).

A very comfortable stay in Sixpenny Barn. Beautifully located in serene countryside but only a few minutes drive away from Penzance, Newlyn and the Zennor coast. We will be back.

Our third visit and just as good as the first. Will visit again

A fantastic setting for a fantastic cottage. Hugely enjoyed our stay as did our puppy enjoy the amazing surroundings. Penzance and St Ives in easy reach and just a serene retreat from our hectic lives.

The property surpassed our expectation of a holiday let, beautifully finished with a well equipped interior. Thank you for considering the small details.

Our dog was made to feel welcome with a bowl waiting for him.

Thank you for considering the details and making our stay memorable and a home from home.

Sixpenny Barn is the best cottage we've ever stayed in. Everything was perfect - the decor, the equipment, the layout, and the location. We literally could not fault it, so much so that we are rebooking immediately!

This is the most comfortable cottage we have ever used in many years of visiting Cornwall. Totally enjoyable and so is the local pub.

Immaculate cottage, beautifully and styled presented with lots of nice touches. In a great location 5 minutes drive from The Gunnard's Head.

Sixpenny barn combines outstanding equipment with a cosy atmosphere. Quietly located and a very good accomodation not only for sunny days

The cottage was perfect for us. Great location. There is so much to see and do in such close proximity. Property was warm and cosy. Worked well for our two year old. Garden was really lovely.

Sixpenny Barn is a very lovely cottage with a beautiful garden. The landlord Sarah was very nice and helpful. It was very quiet and the next cities were not far away, only ten minutes by car.

Would definitely recommend this cottage. Beautifully decorated and well equipped. Very comfortable and a lovely feeling. Could easily move in!

We thank the owner of Sixpenny Barn -Sarah for her wonderful house..we enjoyed it very much!!

Sixpenny Barn is in a very quiet an peaceful location but very near to Penzance. It is immaculately presented and dogs are made to feel welcome not just accepted.

Fresh fish @ Fore Street, Newlyn !!
