Problem with dead not cleaned up cluster flys. Duvets in spare rooms very thin for Autumn use. Barn very well stocked for children’s entertainment and the kitchen once again very well equipped. Comfortable warm and a very pleasant stay would defiantly stay again. As long as the cluster flys were cleaned up.??

Thanks for your review of Alicia's Barn - we're pleased that you found it to be comfortable and well equipped and that you'd like to return. We were sorry to read your comment about flies and have followed this up with the housekeeping team. There are some throws available for colder months but we have also suggested that thicker duvets are provided. Alison, Customer Support

Would like your comments on the 2 properties that smelt damp

Reply from Classic Cottages

Thank you for your comments. We have been in touch directly in response to your feedback. Alicia's Barn is a traditional barn conversion which is unlikely to have a modern damp proof course. With the hot, humid weather conditions we've had this summer and the sudden downturn into colder weather in the last few weeks, this could be the type of property more likely to experience some condensation and perhaps a damp feeling to the air on occasion. We do recommend that properties similar to this are well ventilated and in some cases a dehumidifier installed to help with air circulation. Bryony, Customer Support

Super holiday accommodation. Cosy, clean and well equipped. Beautifully furnished. Location is perfect for exploring the Roseland Peninsula, and so many beaches close by.

This is an attractive property, but smells quite badly of damp.

We had a super week as such a fantastic area for day trips and local walks. Hidden hut was great find as food wonderful. Cottage was well equipped and welcoming and provided great base for exploring Roseland. Definitely thinking of returning as most relaxing holiday had for a long time. Also felt classic cottages were exceptionally efficient and will use again. Thanks for a lovely holiday, helped by the unusually good weather.

Very comfortable barn with added extras for the children to play with (box of toys, DVDs and videos). Clean and tidy with nice John Lewis towels!!! Not a great location for take aways but we should've researched it better. Plus not many beaches close by where dogs aren't allowed. But cottage was great!

Thanks for taking the time to review Alicia's Barn - we're pleased that you enjoyed your time at the barn, and that the children were kept well entertained! Beaches at Portscatho and St Mawes have dog restrictions in high season, and huge Carne Beach has a byelaw requiring dogs to be kept on leads during this time too. is a useful site for finding out details of all local beaches.

Lovely location, just a short walk to my favourite beach and just a little further to a great lunch at the hut

August 2016

Great location.

May 2016

This converted barn is in a great location on the Roseland Peninsula where you will find fantastic walks and great beaches. Its really welcoming and cosy and has the bonus of no worries about car parking. Its only a few minutes walk from the famous 'hidden hut' where you can get excellent coffee and food, you must try the lunch on offer every day. If you need to unwind and relax this is the place.

Excellent accommodation, well equipped with a sea view (yes there actually is if you stand in a certain place!). Lovely sitting on the decking with a glass of your favourite tipple Far enough away from the busier locations but a fairly easy walk along coastal path to Portscatho

March 2016

Excellent cottage, close to a lovely beach and the SW Coast path.

February 2016

We loved staying here and would recommend to anyone wanting a quiet and relaxing trip to the south coast of Cornwall.
