A superb retreat in a beautiful rural situation The cottage has everything in it to make a stress free and comfortable stay
Mr Marks September 2018
Martlett Barn is excellent, very comfortable and well equipped accommodation, beautifully presented and situated in an ideal location just right for exploring the south west area of Cornwall. We would certainly recommend. Karen & Richard are exceptionally welcoming hosts and the added bonus of Karen's horses in the nearby field would suit anyone with an equestrian interest.
Mrs Logan June 2018
The cottage, although compact, was immaculately clean and extremely well equipped, a real home from home. The refreshments and friendliness of the owners made us feel very welcome, particularly after our very long drive. The location of the cottage was very tranquil and peaceful which made for a very relaxing break - the perfect base from which to discover the beauty of Cornwall. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Martlett Barn to all.

A delightful, quiet, comfortable and well located place to spend a few days or more. All mod cons provided. Close to shops & restaurants and well located for travelling around. Hosts friendly & welcoming.

Lovely homely cottage, exceptionally well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Also wonderful quiet location which is perfect for exploring Cornwall. Would definitely reccomend!
Miss Hyde September 2017
A wonderfully warm welcome from Karen & Richard to this great little find! The barn is spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable and has everything you could possibly need, especially the superbly equipped kitchen. It is rural, yet centrally placed on The Lizard, within short walks to Porthleven, Penrose & Helston and a short drive to Falmouth.

Ideal starting point for discovering the area!
Miss Marley May 2017
We had a wonderful welcome from Karen and Richard. The basket of tea and biscuits on arrival was just what we needed after our long drive. The owners were perfect hosts so welcoming and they even managed to supply the sunshine for our holiday, thank you. The location of the barn was in a perfect location to explore this part of Cornwall. Will definitely go back and have already recommend to our friends.
Ms Saverimuttu May 2017
A lovely, cosy and comfortable cottage, with beautiful views all round, and a warm welcome from the owners. A great base for exploring the Penrose estate and the Lizard peninsula, and the perfect place to get away from it all!
Mrs Wilkinson March 2017
Lovely cottage, very well equipped and in a great spot for everything the area has to offer. The on-site owners Richard and Karen are great, very friendly, welcoming and helpful. Really enjoyed our stay!
Ms Joel August 2016
Our hosts were very welcoming. The studio was simply lovely and extremely well equipped (we took our own coffee pot but there was no need). Everything is at a very high standard, clean and well presented. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and we walked to Porthleven a couple of times, it's a must do. We would definitely book again, we were very sad to leave after our perfect week.
Mr Hamblett June 2016
very happy with Martlett Barn, we will return in near future.
Mr Slade May 2016
An excellent studio apartment, nice size and very good location ....close to many attractions and also for supermarkets and restaurants in Helston. Would recommend to anyone wanting country views, excellent walking in Penrose and Looe Bar a jog/bike away. Porthleven also close which is an added benefit!
