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.
Mrs Broadhurst February 2020
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.
Mrs Broome November 2019
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.
Mrs O'Connell October 2019
Wonderfully furnished and well equipped gem of a cottage.
Mr Compton October 2019
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.
Mrs McNeill September 2019
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.
Mr Floyd August 2019
Modern, well finished barn conversation that meet all expectations. Very clean & very well equipped.
Mr Palmer August 2019
A perfect cottage for a family or couple, close to all the attractions and places to visit in the area. Thoroughly recommended.
Ms Ormston June 2019
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!
Mr Klehn June 2019
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
Mrs Watson April 2019
A lovely cottage in a beautiful quiet location with great walks from the door.
Mr Compton September 2018

Mrs Zeilstra August 2018
Cosy and very well equipped, good shower
Mrs O'Brien August 2018
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.
Mr Waring July 2018
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)
Mrs Shanks June 2018
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.
Mr Saunders June 2018
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
Mr Cox May 2018
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.

Mr Overton September 2017
Lovely cottage in such a peaceful setting, cosy, warm and clean. Dogs loved the garden!
Ms Schlick August 2017
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!
Mr Arrowsmith August 2017
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.
Mr Stenton July 2017
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!
Mr Wilcox June 2017
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'.
Miss Clarke May 2017
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
Mrs Gooders March 2017

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!).
Mr Forsberg May 2015
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.

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.
