Another wonderful holiday at Kernel's Barn, Colin and Sally are great hosts, our daughter was able to help with feeding the chickens and egg collecting, the highlight of her stay. The house was clean and comfortable, a peaceful and relaxing location within easy reach to Portreath and Porthtowan. ...

We have just returned from a 5 day stay at Kernels Barn. It was lovely the barn is beautiful and absolutely spotless. The hosts had left a cream tea for us in the fridge which was a lovely surprise and we had the use of a lovely garden at the property. The hosts Colin and Sally were very friendly and we enjoyed a visit to see Colin’s prize heifer Nectarine. The barn is in beautiful countryside but only minutes away from 2 beaches and places to eat. I would highly recommend the truly charming property and will definitely visit again. Thank you. ...

We've stayed in many places in Cornwall and this one exceeded expectations and people often say in reviews that they'll be back but this on this one we actually mean it. The cottage is comfortable and superbly situated allowing us to leave the car and take walks to either Portreath Beach and Porthtowan. Colin and Sally are extremely friendly and helpful. We hope to return next year and fully expect to see Colin's rosettes on the gate from showing his prize 'cow'...

A lovely cottage in an idyllic position with plenty of your own space . A good area for daily trips .You will need a sat nav !!

Beautiful property in a lovely setting. The owners were very kind and helpful. Our son is currently using a wheelchair and Colin, the owner, built a ramp so we could get our son in and out of the property, this was exceptionally kind.
