Miss Chen December 2020
The owner Kevin is very nice, he did check a couple of times if our stay is pleasant, so I'll give this 3.5 /5 because of him. Hot tub is available 24/7 which is a plus point and you can do your own BBQ there. But when we arrived there, we've been told that we can't change the temperature of the hot tub, it will stay at 38; which is just luke warm in winter time, so it's a bit :( Also sauna is not available under covid, it's understandable when there's other guests there, but later in the week we were the only guests there, still haven't been informed that we can use the facility. Equipment wise, the automatic light comes on in the toilet is a plus point initially, however, if you going to the shower (not for long) the light will turn itself off, so you have to get out of the shower and wave it on. Shower is wayyy to small, I'm a fit young person and not tall, it's even difficult for me to turn my body around not mentioned my partner is a taller and solid build. When I turn around and wash my hair, my arm will knock off the shower gel holder, this happened multiple times and one time it fall on my feet and caused injury and bruises. There's other small things not worth mentioning here, so if you decided to book this place, it is indeed a quiet , peaceful and beautiful place to stay, it's in the middle of nowhere if you like to stay away from crowns, it';s also convenient to travel to other places and does your groceries. Shops within 10m driving are SPAR, Lidl and porthleven supermarket. This location is good so you can go to Land's end in 46m, St Michael's mount in 16m, st Ives in 31m, newly 30m, so it's a good location.

We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and agree that the hot tub is a real treat; it is set at the safe and recommended temperature - air temperature can have an effect in colder months however and we're sorry if it felt a little on the cool side for you. The sauna on site is not an advertised facility so is not available for guests to use. We'll certainly pass your helpful observations onto the owner for their consideration and we appreciate your helpful local information, which we're sure will benefit future guests. Thanks so much for reviewing Poppy and we hope to welcome you back to Cornwall soon.
Miss Brown December 2020
We stayed in Poppy cottage for one week in December. The cottage was lovely and cozy and the hot tub was fab! Cannot fault it at all and I'm sure we will be making a return trip in the future. Really good location for seeing lots of Cornwall and thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Kota restaurant in Porthleven one night. Thanks very much, it was a great holiday!

It is wonderful to read your review of Poppy - we are thrilled that you had a great holiday! In these colder days, the hot tub must have been fantasti, especially after a day exploring. If you need any assistance making another booking we are more than happy to help. Sarah, Customer Support

Mrs Askew September 2020
Lovely cottage in a lovely location
Mr Southwell September 2020
Very nice location , peaceful, just not as private as expected
Mr Longstaff August 2020
lovely cosy cottage in a good location. We found Kevin the owner very friendly and helpful. We found the hot tub great for relaxing in the evenings in very quiet surroundings.
Miss Rennicks September 2019
If you have a young baby then this is a great choice of cottage. Everything we needed for our little one was provided and the hot tub was well used during nap time!
mrs Hales March 2019
We had an amazing holiday (the first in 25 years of marriage). The whole experience was wonderful, even though the weather tried its best to ruin it, lol. The hot tub, even in March, was bliss at the end of a long days exploring, and in the dark, with the stars shining(sometimes) was quite magical. I shall definitely be recommending the cottages to friends, family and anyone else who will listen, lol. We hope to come back in a couple of years to finish exploring the bits we couldn't fit in this time xxx
Mr Haque February 2019
What can we even say! This was our first visit to Poppy Cottage and we was speechless. Everything was perfect, pictures really don’t do justice. Lillian & Kevin really went out their way to make sure we settled in nicely. Biscuits and flowers upon our arrival, hot tub already heated and ready to use, hot tub was the highlight for us, every night after a long day of exploring the beauty of Cornwall! We visited a lot, St Michaels Mount, Praa Sands, St Ives , Land’s End, Penzance and much more... Thank you so much! We will definitely be coming back, even my little baby Jacob loved every bit especially snuggling up with us in the super soft king size bed! All the best Lillian & Kevin and hope to see you again soon! X Thank you ever so much for making our holiday perfect and relaxing.

Mr Conway October 2018
Excellent place for a break well equipped and has plenty to offer.
Mr Evans September 2018
Fantastic place to stay. Quiet but accessible, extremely well-appointed with all you could need. Great hosts for whom nothing was too much trouble. The sights of the area quickly reached and some very nice pubs - THe Falmouth Packet particularly so. Best place we've stayed for years
Mrs Richards September 2018
A cosy comfortable cottage that is both well equipped. In a quiet location yet only 5 minutes from Helston and Porthleven and only 20 minutes from Hayle and Penzance. Private hot tubs are perfect after a day walking and a morning sauna eases sore muscles. Probably the best cottage we have booked so will definitely book again.
Mrs Costantini July 2018
Poppy offers everything you need for a truly unforgettable holiday, in any weather: nearby beaches if it's sunny, hot tub if it's wet, exciting museums if you are a culture-vulture, BBQ equipment if you like to grill your own food, excellent eateries if you prefer to sit down and be served, pubs for live entertainment, CD player for a quiet evening in. Just perfect!
Miss Williams June 2018
Loved everything about our stay at the poppy. The was cottage was lovely, the facilities was great and it was in a beautiful location, was lovely to have a field right by the cottage so the dog could have a run round before going out for the day. Would definitely recommend and would stay again.
Mrs Wright February 2018
Lovely accommodation, peaceful and well equipped. Not far from us but really felt we were on holiday. Owners very attentive.
Mrs Morland September 2017
This cottage had a lovely combination of peace and privacy without being isolated . The welcome was friendly and the extra touches of tea, biscuits and flowers were lovely. The hot tub was perfect for an afternoon relaxing. I would highly recommend this property.
Mrs Hopkins August 2017
The fact that we have stayed at Trewhellas Barns 7 times in under three years must tell you, that the Venue, hosts and area are well worth the visit. The Barns are all comfortable, clean, warm and welcoming, The fact that each cottage has its own private hot tub to use whenever the fancy takes you is, in our minds, a very welcome added bonus! We find Trewhellas Barns quite central for exploring the surrounding attractions .. most ventures out, only being just 30 - 45 mins by car in any direction ...... IF your looking for Peace and tranquility you really can't go wrong by choosing Meadow, Poppy or Daisy .......
Miss Turton August 2017
Had a wonderful stay at Poppy again, this being our second visit to the cottage. Loved playing pool in Owl Barn and relaxing in the hot tub of an evening. Thank you for a perfect holiday! We will be back soon!
Mr Abbott August 2017
Excellent base for exploring the western end of Cornwall, and after all the sightseeing we still looked forward to the welcoming hot tub and the homely feel of the cottage
Mrs Bentley-Green August 2017
Stunning cottage in a fabulous location with a warm welcome from lovely hosts. A fun and relaxing holiday. We will return!
Mrs Jacombs July 2017
We absolutely adored our stay at Poppy! And had the most wonderful and relaxing week in Cornwall and found the owners to be nice and helpful. The finishing touches in the cottage made us feel special and the hot tub was just perfect!
Mrs Markey June 2017
Very nice location, lovely owners, lovely private hot tub, huge field to exercise the dog, cottage had everything including a very comfy bed, would definitely return.
Miss Day April 2017
I have already recommended to quite a few people and we will be booking again next year for another break as the location is great with easy access to so many places. The cottage itself is beautiful and Kevin & Lillian are such lovely warm people who make you feel so welcome. Would definitely recommend Poppy & Classic Cottages to anyone !! We would look at trying another cottage but we love Poppy so much we'll probably keep going back there :)
Thank you for another amazing holiday !!
Miss Day December 2016
The cottage itself was immaculate and the furnishings etc were lovely. The field for exercising the dog was great as a dog owner. The hot tub was lovely and had we booked in the summer the little 'garden' area with BBQ, hot tub and chairs would have been frequented much more but it was a tadge cold in December! Kevin & Lilian made us feel very welcome on arrival and the flowers on arrival in the cottage were a lovely surprise. There was nothing to complain about as everything was either perfect or better and we couldn't have asked for anything else, we have already booked to come back in April this year as we enjoyed it so much. It did not live up to expectations ..... it surpassed expectations !! would highly recommend this location to anyone looking for a quiet break in Cornwall with easy access to lots of places of interest.
Miss Frampton October 2016
A lovely stay at poppy!! The cottage owners were very pleasant with accepting that we had a puppy to take.. Both dogs thoroughly enjoyed the holiday & so did we. Perfect location with not far to go to see the beautiful coast paths. Then finished off in the hot tub to relax after a busy day. We stayed in the cottage every night as it was so well equipped & comfortable we didnt feel we needed to go out.
Miss Turton September 2016
Lovely homely cottage, loved Owl Barn and the hot tub of an evening! Had everything we needed and more. We will be back! Thank you!
Miss Freer August 2016
Great cottage, great location, great price, amazing hot tub!!! What more could you want?! Loved it!!
Mrs Costantini July 2016
the Poppy provides al the comforts one seeks during a holiday - outdoor space, hassle free parking, a relaxing hot tub after the coastal path, a well-organized games room for rainy days, close proximity to a lot of attractions. A first-class cottage!
Mr Manning July 2016
Coming back from an evening out and unwinding in the hot tub, viewing the stars was magical
Mr Trott June 2016
We spent a fantastic week here,excellent facilities, perfect position to access all the favourite holiday spots eg st Ives, porthleven, beautiful Kynance cove and the lizard a little further and you have stunning porthcurno and the Minack theatre. Well equipped cottage with a lovely hot tub to relax in at the end of the day whilst watching the sunset. Dog exercising area very useful. Indoor games and sauna very handy if weather not so good or just to relax in. Thank you to the owners who were very welcoming and have thought of everything to ensure we had a good stay.
Mrs Norcross-Austin May 2016
Will certainly recommend the cottages to all our friends...a place to chill out!!
Mrs Albery April 2016
A really lovely place to stay, friendly and helpful owners, can't rate the hot tub highly enough!
Me Cusack March 2016
We both have seen how well the Cottage is, and it shows by how much work and effort that You Both have done..Well done to You Both...
Miss Parry February 2016
Poppy was a stunning cottage in a lovely, peaceful rural location. Set in the perfect position in which to explore the Cornwall attractions, I would recommend this to anyone. The hosts were lovely, and we were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The highlight has to be the hot tub - watching the stars at night with the bubbles going was pure bliss. We cannot wait to return.
Mrs Hopkins February 2016
If you want peace and tranquility this is the place for you. Only sounds are country birds and animals along with the low humm of the hot tubs .... Sheer Bliss!
Miss Nutland January 2016
Had an excellent stay, would recommend to anyone for a relaxing break.
Mr Hall December 2015
Having scanned many websites to find no availability, Poppy came up. Not only was it a better location, but an ideal, stunning cottage to allow a home from home private short break, with an amazing private jacuzzi under the stars! Fantastic.
Mr Cooksey December 2015
Perfect short break
Mrs Wickers November 2015
If you are looking for a dog friendly cosy getaway, then look no further. You will make new friends with Terry and Hilary They are wonderful. We have absolutely loved our stay.

Mrs Couzens October 2015
Location was brilliant to explore all of south and mid Cornwall area with ease of travelling. Worth every penny. Hilary and Terry excellent attention to detail and know how to be superior hosts. Very homely and comfortable, 'their home is your home' feel to the place. Our doggy absolutely loved the place and is miserable that we are home, she is missing her field haha
Mr Delaney September 2015
Excellent holiday. Lovely homely feel to the cottage and welcoming owners. Lots of personal touches and the hot tub made for a really relaxing holiday. Definitely will go again.

Lovely little cottage in a peaceful spot in the countryside. Didn't want to go home! Have discussed future visits back to this cottage as we had a great time here
Mr Harries March 2015
Would definitely recommend this cottage. We booked poppy, daisy and meadow as a family. The owners were superb....friendly, helpful, nothing was too much trouble. It's situated in quiet country lanes so great if you want to get away from it all. The hot tubs are an added bonus. Also a good location from which to explore the delights of south cornwall. Thank you, we have made great memories.
Mr Lawley February 2015
A lovely half term break, just what the doctor ordered, the evening hot tubs with a glass of bubbles looking at the stars was just perfect.
Mr Wareing October 2014
It's like a home from home and Terry and Hillary are the nicest most helpful people you will ever meet. Stay here if you want a peaceful holiday which will leave you the most relaxed you have ever been!!
Mrs Oakley August 2014
Probably one of the best places we have stayed in in Cornwall. The owners have made it a perfect holiday location with everything you need and a hot tub as a bonus. The cottage is in a prime position to visit the rest of Cornwall, in great setting with peaceful surroundings. Will hopefully visit again.
Mrs Fairbank August 2014
One of the best places we have stayed in Cornwall. Very handy for sightseeing and beaches.

Mr Nelson December 2013
We love trewhellas barns. This was our third stay and was as excellent as ever! Hillary and Terry were as accommodating and welcoming as ever! There were some pretty nasty storms whilst we were there but we were kept warm and cosy by poppy! Can't wait to go back again for a fourth visit sometime!

Miss Rowe-Parratt September 2013
We had a wonderful stay at Poppy. The hosts are incredibly welcoming and helpful and the cottage is lovely, very comfortable. The hot tub was fantastic, we spent lots of time in it looking at the hills and the stars!
Mr Nelson July 2013
A wonderful cottage in a beautiful location and you can't ask for better owners!! You are out in the country but there are local shops & 2 supermarkets within a 10/15 minute drive! I can't put into words how much we love Trewhellas barns, I'll just say we were very sad to leave & an't wait to go back!
Mrs Costantini July 2013
if you are looking for comfort and most of all PEACE, the Poppy is what you want. It's the perfect place for people who love nature and silence, with the convenience of a Sainsbury supermarket ten minutes down the road for your evening BBQs!
Mrs Monk June 2013
The owners of the cottages were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend a holiday in one of their cottages to anyone. The only disappointment was the weather, but there's not much anyone can do about that!
